Warning: You are in for a monster of a post my friends; so buckle up and let’s roll out!
Let’s flashback to Friday night….dinner was simple and tasty. Most importantly, it was on the table within 10 minutes of arriving home from work.
eggs + whole wheat toast
Simple is best, no?
After dindin, it was me + 500 Days of Summer, which equated to a perfect solo night to recharge the batteries. I headed to the indie theater in Minneapolis and thorough enjoyed the quirky, romantic comedy of a movie. Not only do I have a crush on Joseph Gordon-Levitt (3rd Rock from the Sun, anyone?), but I officially also now have a girl crush on Zooey Deschanel (who also happens to be on the new cover of SELF mag!).
When I got home, my sister, her boyfriend and I spent the next 1 1/2 hours reading Texts From Last Night. Completely inappropriate? Of course. Completely hilar? Obv.
I slept in until 9am Saturday morn (that is late para mi!) and enjoyed a nice brekkie pre-run…
zoe's cinnamon raisin granola + cinnamon raisin smartstart + skim milk + POM juice
About an hour or so later, I bounded out for a 10 mile run.
Ummm…yeah, it didn’t go so hot. I felt out of shape (hadn’t run since last Saturday), my chest was uber-tight and I miscalculated my run. For some reason, I thought the route I planned was 10 miles, but it ended up being 8. Don’t ask how I messed that one up.
I’m chalking that one up to getting back in the running groove. Since I haven’t done yoga in forev, I took more time to stretch myself out post-run while eating these…
one pound of strawbs consumed
Oops…I forgot to mention the other pound of strawberries (a 2 lb. container for 4$!) was consumed yesterday afternoon. Yes, that means I’ve consumed 2 lbs. of strawbs in two days.
Lunchie made me feel better after the crappy run because I met one of my besties Megan out at Davanni’s – our date restaurant of choice! This is what we ALWAYS order…
veggie white pizza...
...and diet coke = meg & holly's traditional date
After scarfing down 4 pieces and two Diet Cokes (it’s tradition!), we bebopped over to Target in search of Miss Fit herself…
jillian oh jillian, how i've needed thee!
Yes, that’s right, I am totally behind the times and JUST picked up Jillian’s 30-Day Shred! Meg and I started talking about it at lunch because she wants to get uber-fit for her sister’s wedding in a month, so we tag teamed it and are going to Shred together! Hot bods here we come!
Last night = top night.
I met Angharad from Eating for England out for dinner wine. Lots more wine was consumed than food :).
notice how the pizza is still untouched but the glass of wine is definitely already half drank
We met up at a cute lil’ local pizza joint where Angharad’s hubs works and started off with what else? RED WINE.
notice: also 3/4 drank
roasted beet and asparagus salad
pumpkin dessert o' love
Throughout our night of consuming one to many glasses of above said alchoholic beverage antioxidants, Angharad and I totally got to girl chat, gab, discuss and have some fabulous conversation. I am honestly SO SAD that I only met her recently, and now I am moving to Madison :(. It was obvious the blog heavens wanted us to be friends, so naturally we’ve already planned meet-up date #4.
cheers to new fabulous friends!
Also, I must note: Dan (her hubs) is equally as awesome. Not only does he make killer pizza, but the man was the first person to challenge me whatsoever in the Countries of the World game on Sporcle. Mad props Dan. Mad props.
This morning…not going to lie…slightly hungover.
Slight headache? Check. Slight gut rot? Check. Slight nausea? Check. Yep, def slight hangover. I’ve downed a Nalgene of water this morning already, a slice of whole wheat toast with spread and took some Ibuprofen, so actually I’m not feeling too bad. It was so worth it.
Special K w/ Red Berries, Blueberries + Skim MIlk
Also, I woke up at 8am (norm time) then fell back asleep until 10:30am! Ummm, that happens like never. Seriously, it felt so glorious, I can’t even tell you.
However, now I need to get a jumpsky on Sunday! Possible schedule for the day (in random order)…
- Coffee (this WILL be first)
- Start the Shred (due to Drinker’s Remorse, sometimes I feel the need to punish my body for the activities of the night before)
- Stop at the Goodwill to drop off donation
- 7pm Yoga/Pilates Fusion class
- Clean out car
- Light grocery shopping
- Organize finances
- Bloggy thangs + bloggy reading
We’ll see if anything actually gets done…
