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!!
