Good morning! It’s Monday again and way too fast if you ask me. I had a fabulous time relaxing, getting stuff done, and having some family time.
Let’s start the recap at the beginning! Friday I came home from work, poured a glass of wine, and had some snuggle time with Coco on the back deck.
This is her serious face. She loves to sit on my lap with her belly hanging out.
Once the sun went down we had some homemade pizza and relaxed at home all evening. We had a random visitor show up to our screen door wanting to make some friends. Unfortunately, Coco and Bella were not interested. Or maybe they were. Judging by the hissing and growling, however, I’m gonna guess that they were not happy about another cat on their deck! Can you spot the intruder?
Saturday was a lazy day at home. After watching food shows on TV all afternoon, we went to an early dinner at a local restaurant called New York Deli. I love this place and they have some awesome food! I went with a chicken parmesan sub (on wheat bread, so I could pretend it was healthy) and some onion rings (vegetables?). It was worth every single calorie, even though I definitely couldn’t finish it all!
Sunday morning, I got up around 7:30 and headed over to Colonial Williamsburg for my run. This is the sixth week I’ve been running in CW on Sundays and I’m still loving it! I can’t wait until the leaves start changing colors as we get into fall! I covered 4 miles at just under an average of 10 mph before heading home to get ready for the day.
Yesterday was my aunt’s 60th birthday so my uncle threw her a surprise party. All week she thought no one was doing anything for her birthday, so she was so surprised and happy to see everyone there! My mom and sister weren’t able to make it down, so I represented our side of the family.
My aunt does CrossFit and has for a few years now. I don’t know a lot of 60-year-olds who are that hard-core, so I’m super impressed with her! Some of her coaches came to the party and my uncle had a Paleo-friendly station set up in their honor.
I had a veggie omelet from the omelet station and some bacon. I also helped myself to a couple mimosas 😉
It was great to see some family for a few hours and wish my aunt a happy birthday!
The rest of my Sunday was spent cleaning, doing laundry, and anxiously awaiting the next Breaking Bad episode. I can’t even handle that show right now!
Busy Monday- Workout and Breakfast
Today starts a new recruiting trip until Thursday and…. it’s the end of an era at work.
No, I haven’t died. My students made this sign once they realized I would no longer be their boss after I got my promotion this summer. We’ve been working to get a replacement (yes, I’ve been doing the work of two people for the last 3 months!), and she officially starts today. I’m excited to pass the torch and focus more fully on my current role, but I will miss being the boss to the awesome student’s I’ve gotten to supervise over the past 3 years!
This morning, I got up super early and hit the gym for a quick 20 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer followed by some ab work, squats, and lunges. I had to pack for my trip so there wasn’t much time for an extensive workout.
Breakfast was vanilla Greek yogurt topped with this amazing Pumpkin Spice Granola from Trader Joe’s. I just discovered it last week and it’s going quickly!
I’m off to Fredericksburg and Leesburg, VA this week, so I’ll be writing from the road. Hope you all have a great Monday!
