It’s the Weekend!

AIt’s Friday!!!  Thank Goodness.  I am so looking forward to the weekend, you have no idea.

Before we get into what’s I’m most looking forward to this weekend, let’s dive into what happened yesterday.

I worked from home and worked through breakfast with 2 cups of coffee!  I don’t know what my problem was.

LUNCH – I use this term loosely because it was around 11 by the time I was starving.  Again, we had zero food in the house (but we did go to grocery store last night).  I really wanted something carb-loaded….so….


PB & JThen,

I devoured a perfectly proportioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

SNACK – I kept on being a firewoman throughout the afternoon and I using a fire extinguisher is quite exhausting.  (Okay, is that too many metaphors?)  I got pretty hungry and wanted something salty before my 3 mile run.

Some more snacks – chocolate covered Twizzlers, which weren’t that good, and a Kashi bar.

EXERCISE – I had a 3 mile run on the agenda and the weather was gorgeous.  It was about 50 degrees and the sun was out!  Time to run around the neighborhood.


Hey, clear skies

I had a really good run.  I put on a fleece jacket because I needed pockets to hold my keys.  NOTE TO SELF: 50 degrees does not need fleece!


That’s not too bad….

Then I came home and found a package!  Since we signed up for the Chicago Women’s Half Marathon early enough, we got a gift package, courtesy of Fleet Feet Chicago.


Hello, Luna Bar!

In the gift bag:

  • White Macademia Nut Luna Bar…which I ate after my run.  It was delicious.
  • Chocolate GU
  • A hat
  • Candle
  • Red Dress Pin
  • A Make-Up Bag

DINNER – We ran to the grocery store and then it was time for some dinner.  We had some elbow macaroni, andouille sausage , green pepper and my mom’s homemade spaghetti sauce.  We both enjoyed it!!


Yummy Sauce!

Now for the fun stuff!

What’s on the agenda for this weekend:

  • Finshing the bottle of wine from our impromptu date on Wednesday
  • Running 4 miles Saturday morning to keep up with my training schedule
  • Watching Lincoln (hopefully).  I didn’t watch it before the Oscars but I’ve started to be really intrigued by Daniel Day Lewis.
  • Cleaning the apartment – oh man does it need some spring cleaning
  • Taking a featured exercise class on Sunday as my cross training – Ballet Body Fusion.  We’ll see how it goes, remember Chicago?
  • Being outside!  I really want to sit on the balcony, drinking coffee Look at this forecast:

What’s on your agenda for this weekend?
