Weekend Recap: Looking Forward To The Week

Hi guys! I hope your Monday is off to a good start. I’m so happy that the weekend is behind us and am looking forward to this week a lot. This past weekend wasn’t as fun as I had hoped because we spent a lot of time moving my brother out of my parent’s house. Since my mom will be staying in Illinois for a while with family, Chris will be living with us until he moves in May. So, now that it is all taken care of I’m happy to finally be done packing my parents’ house and going through old stuff and am really looking forward to having my weekends back!

I kicked off the weekend with a Saturday morning gym sesh and a meeting with the stair master. I had planned to go to yoga but woke up and wasn’t in the mood so I hit the gym for some cardio. I did 15 minutes on the stair master + 25 minutes on the elliptical. Um, it was snowing when I left the gym.

Breakfast post-gym was a new to me yogurt, Siggi’s, with a banana and coconut butter. This yogurt is GOOD. I found it on sale at Harris Teeter for $1 and am kicking myself for not buying more. But anything with coconut butter is good, no?

After a trip to Costco and Trader Joe’s, Nick and I literally spent four hours on the couch watching TV and reading. It was so necessary after many weekends of craziness. I can’t tell you the last time we just laid around and it was awesome.

Saturday night we met up with a few of my girlfriends and their boyfriends for dinner and drinks at Barcocina. The blackberry sangria was incredible. Nick and I split chips and guac to start and I ordered a mango quinoa salad with chicken that was unexpectedly good.




None of my pictures from the night turned out for some reason…sad!

Sunday morning we woke up and after a quick breakfast of fruit, yogurt and the last of the BEST peanut butter ever  – Wild Friends Honey Pretzel – we hit the road.

We spent most of the morning/afternoon at my parents’ house packing, cleaning and going through stuff. Like I said above, I am SO happy that it’s finally done and we don’t have to deal with that anymore!

Once we got back, I headed off to the gym for a 4 mile run and then came home and made an easy Sunday night dinner. Turkey burgers, sweet potatoes and green beans were all I was thinking about while running and it was perfect!

And we said goodbye to the weekend with a trip to Yogi Castle. I got a mix of Snickers and peanut butter froyo and topped it Reese’s cups, peanut butter, hot fudge and a brownie. SO good.
