Hello my lovely friends, it has been a while! Now I know some of you may think that I was just ignoring this little blog, or maybe some may even think that I had taken a vow of silence…..I assure you that was not the case!
I merely didn’t feel well last week so I didn’t blog. I wasn’t actually sick or anything just not feeling myself. I think my body was just exhausted or something. Anyway work was also super busy which left me with very little breaks for writing. So I decided to not write. I spent my few break times just resting
I mean honestly sometimes it is just best to listen to your body and mind as opposed to carry through with your normal activities. Now while I took a break from writing, I thankfully continued with my workouts for the most part. I was able to get in two good runs last week so that is a plus.
But I had a fabulous weekend full of fun activities and rest so I am back to my normal routines again! Friday night kicked off our weekend with a birthday celebration for my brother-n-law…..the weekend just went from there.
Saturday morning was spent at the salon for some much needed hair therapy (color, conditioning, and cut), then I loaded the boys up for a picnic in the park. It was such a pretty day I couldn’t stay inside….who cares about floors and laundry!
Saturday night was spent with the girls for a little girl talk at our local wine bar. We had such a nice time just relaxing and talking. Then Sunday morning I woke up early to go to church with my bestie and a shopping adventure began after that. We headed into a “nearby” city for some lunch (PF Changs), Whole foods, and mall action
Needless to say there was way too much alcohol consumed this past weekend! It actually started with our wine tasting on Thursday night, some beer for the bday, some been/wine Saturday, and some wine with lunch on Sunday. I totally need to guzzle water today!
I have more wine/beer to look forward to this weekend as well. I am hosting my besties bday party and then super bowl. Needless to say I totally have a plan for next Monday that I will share with you after two weekends of consuming alcohol! While I do not drink in excess, I do know how even a small amount affects my diet!
This weeks planned menu:
- Monday – BBQ venison roast (sandwiches for boys) and salad
- Tuesday – Red Beans & Rice with cornbread & salad/veggies
- Wednesday – Chicken Salads (not the mayo kind, simply grilled)
- Thursday – Backstrap w/ gravy, mashed potato/veggies
- Friday – tilapia, salad, brown rice
Then party foods will be abundant for the rest of the weekend. Not to worry I do have some healthy alternatives planned such as hummus/veggies, antipasto plate, and some pico de gallo!
As far as activities go the plan is to run on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday with Tuesday/Thursday spent at the gym for weights or class of some sort. I haven’t been to the gym in about a week so I really need to go to get an updated group class schedule!
Here is to a great week!!
