What a weird beginning to my Monday. It’s 7:00 a.m., and I’m blogging while my husband’s getting ready for work. Shouldn’t I be getting ready for work with him?! It’s going to take a while to kick that feeling. (For those who haven’t read, I quit my full time job to pursue the fitness field and my last day was Friday.)
What a weekend! For a no-plans weekend, we sure did a lot! It’ll take a little too much of your precious time to give you the play-by-play, so here it is, in sum.
We were OUTSIDE!!!
It was HOT and SUNNY in Central Illinois, and I think my skin is a few shades darker. Throughout the weekend, we partook in numerous outdoor activities!
I trained clients, ran a few miles, did a little lifting, cooked out, played bags…
And played Uno and drank beer, obviously.
All the while, fueling UP.
Two farm fresh eggs over medium + one half Ezekiel muffin w/ a PB/Protein Powder/Banana mush on top.
Quinoa leftovers + veggies:
And yesterday afternoon, my friend who has lived in California the past two years, and Florida the two before that, is back in town!!
My beautiful, Kori!
And her BF Cory:
While they visited, we drank smoothies with a special ingredient of rum for an extra kick:
1 . frozen peaches + strawberries, 1 c. almond milk, some (?) rum, xantham gum, frozen bananas.
Cory is an amazing photographer, so we headed downtown where he helped me learn some stuff about my (well, my dad’s…:)) 40D Cannon.
Then we stopped in a cute coffee shop called the Coffee Hound:
I think I’m obsessed with learning about this camera now. I wa
nna know it ALL! Aperture, ISO, shutter speed OH MY.
It was pretty hot and muggy outside, so when we got back, we were all pretty beat, and were pretty jealous of the pets who were inside with the air on 😉
They headed home shortly after, and I got some cleaning done, and then relaxed with the husband and Jack Bauer.
Currently munching on a banana dog, and about to head out on a 6.5 miler:
It’s gonna be a hot one. It’s already mid seventies and muggggy.
The rest of the day will entail organizing the office, looking up courses to take for a specialization I’m thinking of, creating some training plans, and then training tonight.
Have a marvelous Monday, all!
What was the most relaxing thing about your weekend?! I went for an evening run with my friend Heidi on Saturday. That was pretty darn relaxing!
