I am so relieved to see Friday come to a close. It has been a really long week. I don’t have much going on this weekend and could not be more content. I’m kicking off the weekend on the couch with the Olympics and a bowl of ice cream with chocolate sauce and peanut butter. It’s pretty incredible. Ice cream makes me so happy…it’s the little things, right?
I do have some plans for the weekend. They include teaching some yoga (yay), taking a balancing poses workshop from a teacher visiting from Chicago and baking these cookies. I’m determined to master them. Yoga and cookies, I can live with that.
I made overnight oats for breakfast. I included peaches, bananas and blueberries for my fruits.
I was driving home for lunch today when I remembered the fridge was pretty bare. I had a major veggie craving so I did a u-turn and hit up the Earth Fare salad bar instead. One pound of veggies and a kombucha later and I was feeling much better.
I had a crazy, crazy afternoon at work and finally headed over to the new location around 5:30 to take the evening CrossFit class and help out around the gym.
The workout was just what I needed for a Friday evening. We started out by working our squat cleans so I got some strength in. The WOD was all running and bodyweight stuff and could easily be done at home.
Buy in: 1 mile run
5 Rounds For Time
10 push ups (hand release)
20 ab mat situps
30 air squats
I ran my mile in 6:50 (woooo!) and got straight into the bodyweight exercises. I finished in 14:40. I was 7 seconds off of the top female finisher and I have no idea how I could have gone any faster to make it up.
I can’t even remember the last time I ate pasta and I had a major craving tonight. I sautéed some sun dried tomato and basil chicken sausage with eggplant, mushrooms and red pepper flakes and then mixed it in with marinara sauce. I served it over pasta and some spinach. I heated a slice of gorgonzola foccacia on the side.
This cuteness is demanding my attention. I think we’re going to head to bed!
Is it a low-key or busy weekend for you?
