Weekend Recap: 11/3-11/4

Hey everyone! It’s been a few days, and I’m here to recap what I’ve been up to lately.

Friday Evening

After work on Friday, I made a quick stop at Target for some workout clothes shopping (more on that in a bit), and later my mom and I went to Yogo Crazy for some frozen yogurt.


My cup was filled with…

  • Pumpkin, apple pie, and reduced-sugar frozen yogurt
  • Cookie dough
  • Lucky Charms
  • Reeses pieces

Yes, it was a sugar bomb.

I literally went to bed almost as soon as I got home, around 8:30; I was so tired for some reason!


Saturday morning I was up early and got dressed for the 5 mile run on my training schedule.


I got the compression tights, compression shirt, and zip-up from Target. Although they were C9 – which I consider to be relatively affordable – the whole ensemble added up to be pretty “expensive” (or at least to someone cheap like me!). I justified it by figuring I’d be getting a lot of use out of these pieces for all of my cold-weather runs.

It took me about an hour, but I completed just over 5 miles around my parents’ neighborhood (they live in a much larger neighborhood than I do, so I ran there instead of in my own ‘hood).

Later in the afternoon on Saturday, I met up with Kristin for lunch at a local restaurant, Say Cheese!

I didn’t take a picture of my sandwich, but I had the fig, arugula, and gorgonzola grilled cheese (so good!). Kristin and I ordered two desserts, and then split them – double the sweets!

Pumpkin cheesecake and crème brulee – both were so good!

It was great to meet Kristin (we live so close!) and I was so glad to finally try Say Cheese! (I already can’t wait to go back.)

The rest of my Saturday was spent grading papers…ugh.


I didn’t take a single picture on Sunday.

The day started with church, followed by grocery shopping. The rest of our afternoon/evening was spent celebrating Chris’s brother’s birthday. We got home around 7:00PM and I ended my evening by passing out in a pile of book reports… ah, the life. 😉


After a rather indulgent weekend, I was happy to get back to my “normal” routine today and managed to be pretty productive. I love a good, productive Monday; it really sets a positive tone for the rest of the week!

What was the yummiest thing you ate this weekend? This is a difficult one for me – cheesecake, crème brulee, frozen yogurt, birthday cake?! Ah, too many choices!

    Pumpkin and apple pie fro yo! yummmy! Those are some of my favorites too! (: I know what you mean about expensive workout gear! I don’t know how people afford lueluemon even on sale haha. Target is pretty good sometimes but I don’t want to spend a bunch of money on a bunch of workout gear even though I do know I need it!

    I’m really interested in compression tights. I just got compression socks. Man, are those things expensive!

    The best thing I ate this weekend was a Italian beef sandwich from Portillo’s in Illinois with cheese fries :) That could easily be my last meal!
