Good morning, friends! It’s another Monday. How do they get here so fast? I worked Saturday, so it was another short weekend for me. The weather, however, was unbelievable! It was almost 70 and sunny all weekend and it made such a huge difference for my mood and stress levels.
After work on Saturday I spent a good 30 minutes walking with Bella, then Riley and I went out for pizza and beer. I’m not a big beer drinker, but something about a warm and sunny Saturday afternoon just makes you want an ice cold beer! Now that Riley’s started his new job, he works on the weekends, which meant early bed times for both of us! Now I won’t have to feel so guilty when I get tired at 10:00 on a Saturday.
Sunday was a great day because my mom came into town to visit! I hadn’t seen my mom in almost 2 months, so I was so excited to hang out with her. I didn’t get a picture of us both yesterday, but here’s an old one of another visit from my mom a while ago.
We went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch and ate EVERYTHING. First, we started off with a shared order of their coconut shrimp, was fantastic.
For my main meal, I got a chicken burrito bowl topped with avocado. It was also seriously good.
We also got a drink, stuffed our faces with chips and salsa, and pretended we were in Mexico. It was a great lunch, but I was stuffed for hours!
I spent the rest of my day after she left reading with the windows open and just trying to get some relaxation in before the week started. It felt so good to sit out on my deck in short sleeves and get some sun!
This morning I woke up determined to stick to a better workout schedule than last week. I gave myself a free pass because I’ve been super stressed at work, but now it’s time to get back to it!
I woke up at 4:30 and got dressed for the gym, then got there right at 5:00. First up was cardio, so I got on a treadmill and ran for 20 minutes. To switch it up, I did 60 second rounds of the following:
- one minute at 6.0 mph
- one minute a 6.0 mph, 5% incline
- one minute at 7.0 mph
The 20 minutes flew by and I was nice and sweaty. I always forget how hard running uphill is! After my run I grabbed some equipment and did the Leaner Legs working from Nike Training Club. It was 15 minutes and I could definitely feel my legs working.
Now it’s time to figure out some breakfast and get ready for work. I hope you all had a great weekend!
