So, yeah - it's after 10:30pm on Monday and I'm just sittin' down to write my weekend recap. Yeah, I'm a little late...but ya know, that's just sorta how things are this time of year for me so bear with me (us Accountants dread this time of year!) But enough of that crap-la. Weekends are where it's at and we had another good one!!! So let's get at it....
Friday night I ventured to Trader Joe's after work. I was able to stock up on some stuff at really great prices - like almond butter, quinoa, almond flour, etc. Good, healthy, clean food at great prices - that makes me a happy camper!!! And of course, I can't be in that neighborhood and not stop at Marshall's - I mean it's RIGHT across the street (and one of my most favorite stores....like E-VER!) I could wander for hours in that store...loooove it!
Saturday we got up early - the hubs headed to CrossFit while I got a 7.4 mile run in! Damn it felt good to run outside - it was a tough run thanks to the snow covered sidewalks but I still enjoyed every second and felt rejuvenated afterwards! After that we got ready and headed out to meet up with some friends for lunch and bowling. We ate at Chipotle so the hubs and I were able to eat clean and not have to take a cheat day!!
After bowling, the hubs and I headed down to watch my father-in-law's basketball game (he's the assistant coach for the Men's basketball team @ SUNY Geneseo!) After the game, we enjoyed a nice dinner with Matt's mom and dad (another 'clean' meal!!) It was a great day!!
Sundays are always so busy for us. I got up early to hit the gym and when I got home the hubs helped me clean the house. It really needed it since we didn't have the chance to do it last weekend since we were out of town . As much as I HATE cleaning, there's just somethin' about a nice, clean house. Nothin' beats it!! After that we headed out for a few hours to run errands and grocery shop. Once home - the real fun begins...every Sunday night we spend a couple hours in the kitchen prepping food for the week. This has been key during this whole clean eating/Paleo challenge. Yesterday we made quinoa salad, hard boiled eggs, cooked a bunch of carrots, butternut squash soup, and Matt whipped up some ground hamburger/beans/spices for himself to take as part of his lunch. This is actually one of my favorite parts of our weekends - I love cooking and being in the kitchen but doing it along side the hubs makes it even better <3
After a couple loads of laundry we were ready to hit the sack. And that my friends was our weekend in a nutshell. What did ya'll do?! Who has big plans for this coming weekend? (and yes I know it's only Monday...and yes I'm ALREADY thinkin' about the weekend!) :)
