Weekend Recap and Weekly Health Plan!

July 22, 2013

Hey Blogger buddies. I hope everyone has been doing well. I have been a little MIA lately (at least from the Blog world. I still use Facebook and Instagram religiously, ha). I have actually had some big life changes to ensue and I have been going non-freaking-stop. But anywho, I'm taking a mental break from work and recapping my weekend.

Friday:
It was a really crappy week at work. I was so busy, so stressed, and I was just in a horrible mood. I was tired from training hard at the gym, not to mention "clean eating", and I was just read to jump off of a bridge. I decided I need "me" time and to just rest. After work, I went to the gym for legs. Friday's are my leg work out's and I cannot miss those! It's my favorite work out. So, I worked out, and hard. I felt a little sick after but ran errands. I grocery shopped, picked up dinner, then went home. I think I was dehydrated, way too hot, and my sugar was low and I ended up getting sick in the parking lot of my condo building. Thankfully, I don't think anyone saw. I grabbed my bags, went into my condo, and quickly took a bath and cleaned up. I had dinner after and felt completely back to normal. I poured a class of wine and watched an old season of True Blood to "wine down" (haha, get it!) and relax.


Saturday: 
I woke up feeling like "me" again. I did some things at home, hit the gym for 45 minutes of cardio, then spent the next 4 hours at my hairstylist's house. She did my roots and we watched a movie and caught up. I am finally back to blonde BLONDE... ya know, not just blonde.

Blondeee!
When I left her house, I went home and made a pizza for dinner then got ready. I met Marquis at the movies and we saw "The Conjuring" - it was so scary and SO good. I am a huge paranormal buff so I have been waiting for months for this movie. It did not disappoint either. Afterwards, I was a little freaked out and did not want to go home right away so we went next door to a bar called "City Tavern" and had a drink. I had a "Little Black Dress Cosmo" and it was delicious. It has cranberry in it and I LOVE cranberry. It was only 98 calories as well. After the drink I went home. I couldn't sleep so I watched "Pretty Woman" then finally fell asleep around 2 AM.

Sunday:
I do my usual on Sunday's. Gym - Food prep - Cleaning. I went to the gym and noon for spin class, and it was tough. It was hard to push through, my quads were sore, but I did. I lifted weights after. Next, I had errands to run. I bought my chicken at Aldi, then went by GNC and Harris Teeter (I am the queen of buying groceries, forgetting my list, AND forgetting at least 2 or 3 things). I went home after all of that, made some lunch, and then forced myself to prep food and scrub my condo. By the time I finished it was around 5. I decided to take a bubble bath and read for a while. I made dinner after and watched all of my shows - RHONJ, True Blood, and Bar Rescue. All in all, it was a great weekend!

Delicious dinner: Zucchini and reduced fat Feta cheese burgers (recipe here) and a side of spicy sweet potato fries... yum!
