Catching Up

Wow, it’s been a hot minute since the last time I checked in. Sorry about that. I was pretty busy with work and life and that’s about it, but I think thats enough. So here is my attempt on catching up with you and with EFP.

Over the past 12 days, since writing this post I have:

  • Said goodbye to a friend who is moving over a couple glasses of wine and delicious food.

  • Spent time with family. Including a surprise visit from my cousin who lives in Hawaii.
  • Spent time with cute babies (and my friends who have cute babies).
  • Flew to Vegas.

  • Attended an amazing marketing conference.
  • Ate an amazing dinner at Tao. <– Fun fact – Last time I was at Tao I was nightclubbing it up and Nelly was there! I immediately shook my tailfeather.
  • Saw One Republic perform and talked to them afterward in the casino. Totally embarrassed myself so refrained form asking for a picture.

  • My skin saw the sunshine for the first time in eons. Sorry to blind you with my paleness.

  • Took a red eye and went right to the office after. That was special.
  • The weekend came and I ate Thai food, went countertop shopping and forgot about Easter.
  • In forgetting about Easter, SL and I got Dairy Queen Blizzards instead. I had the new Salted Carmel Truffle flavor while SL went with a classic Oreo and cookie dough combination.

Note: I just looked up the nutrition facts for a Salted Caramel Truffle Blizzard – 1060 calories!! FML. Oh well, at least I skipped Easter and all of the Easter candy.

Now that I crushed nearly a full days worth of cals in one Blizzard, lets talk about workouts for the week!

Monday: Tone It Up DVD routine (DONE!!)
Tuesday: AM – 40 minute run (DONE!!) / PM – Want to try to get to pilates
Wednesday: AM – 40 minutes HIIT or maybe this 101 workout
Thursday:  AM – Pilates / PM – Walk to Blogilates book signing!
Friday: AM – Full body toning of some sort
Saturday / Sunday: Wherever the days take me 🙂

I hope you all enjoy your Tuesday. Is it the weekend yet?

Weekend Highlights: Bad Weather, Good Times

Its Monday again…super.

Today is an exciting day because its exactly 200 days until SL and I tie the knot! I can’t wait!

200 days

My weekend went a little something like this.

Friday night = Pizza night. Our new hometown is home to one of my favorite pizza places of all time, Riverview Pizza. I had a craving for it and after a quick coin flip (going out to get pizza vs. doing dishes) I was out on the road to pick up the pies. It was well worth it.

Saturday’s weather was horrible…cold and rainy. I started the day on the treadmill and completed Cupid’s Cardio while watching Silver Linings Playbook. My mom, sister and my sister’s best friend came by the house to visit and other than hanging out with them for a few hours, I did nothing. Until dinner time that is. SL and I have been dying to try this little burger place in town, Bunz Burgers.

(Love this sign!)

This place was AMAZING. We got burgers and hand-cut fries to-go and devoured them when we got home. My burger was piled high with bacon, pickles, jalapeños, grilled mushrooms and grilled onions. I didn’t take a picture because it was a sloppy mess after taking one bite.

Sunday’s weather was even worse than Saturday’s because it snowed. Woof. Enough already, its time for Spring. The lousy weather forced me to do TONS of prep and allowed me to finish Silver Linings Playbook. The movie was good but predictable. Perfect girly flick for a rainy, snowy weekend.

It was nice to have a “nothing” weekend especially since no part of we wanted to go out in gross weather.

And now its time to take on another work week! Wish me luck!
