Weekend Update!

Good Monday morning everyone! I woke up today feeling great after a relaxing weekend. Sometimes, Monday's aren't so bad, ya know?

Weekend Recap

Friday// Typically on Friday, I try and leave work a little early but I was the only professional staff member on duty  so it didn't happen this time around. Which, when you love your job, isn't really a big deal. ;) However, I'll admit, it was SUPER slow. Around 4pm, I decided to take my "lunch" break and hop on the treadmill and hit the weights. Nothing crazy but definitely effective.


After work, Peter & I ran to Wal-Mart to pick up some supplies for the weekend and OMG--they FINALLY had chocolate chip cookie dough Arctic Zero! I seriously look every single time I go to the store and am always, ALWAYS disappointed. I wasn't even going to look this time but figured might as well. And of course they did! And guys... it's delicious. I may have gone through 2 pints this weekend.....

The rest of the night was pretty low key--we made dinner, watched a movie, and I destroyed another Sweet Haus cupcake and added in some of the Arctic Zero. ;) (I start my 24 day cleanse today--cheating was the theme of the weekend!)

Saturday// Saturday morning I continued my trend of taking a class at the gym. I usually take TurboKick but this time, it was a Tabata based class--still fun! I worked up a decent sweat and then ran 4 miles after.

Upon returning home, I somehow managed to talk Peter into going on an adventure with me. And an adventure it was. There is this AWESOME lookout tower in our area that I kept seeing my friends pots pictures of so I was bound and determined to find it. I went on the local tourism page, got directions, and off we went. Except, the tourism's page took us COMPLETELY the wrong way. Like, not even the remote same direction. What should have been a 45 minute drive took 2 HOURS. That being said, we had so much fun and when we finally did get to the lookout, it was TOTALLY worth it. I can't believe I've lived here my entire life and never been.

We ended up getting home around 7... much later than anticipated. ha. But we had dinner, watched a little basketball (YEAH WISCONSIN!) and of course, I was in bed by 10pm. No surprise there.

Sunday// I've been totally digging my longer runs on Sunday lately. I love having that time to reflect on the weekend, think about my upcoming week, and start formulating plans in my head for meal plans, workouts, etc. Not to mention, I love watching the Food Network--duh. :) This run was no exception. I finally restocked my Advocare O2 Gold (MAGIC!) and popped a couple of those about an hour before hand and it was another incredible run. A solid 10.10 miles and my legs felt so unbelievably good. I'm not sure if I'll PR at the Kentucky Derby Half but I'm hoping I at least have a shot.

It was a great start to a super low key Easter. My mom & dad were both out of town and my niece, brother and sister-in-law celebrated with her family so Peter & I just hung around the house and got some work done, cleaned, and meal prepped. Typically Sunday stuff. :) I tried staying up and watching a movie with him but once 9pm came, I was out like a light.

All in all, not a bad weekend. This weekend, my boss and I are running a half marathon relay! So excited! I've done several halfs but never a relay!

How as your weekend?!



  1. A half relay sounds exciting! I've only tried one Arctic Zero flavor (cookies and cream, I think?), and that one looks yummy!!

    1. it's awesome! totally worth checking out! :)
