Weekend Recap: 2/1 – 2/3

Ugh. Today was a day. I can’t/don’t want to go into it all, but let’s just say half the box quite a few of these were consumed immediately upon arriving home this afternoon.

Weekend 5

Side note: aren’t peanut butter patties the best Girl Scout cookies?!

Anyway, rather than drone on about my miserable Monday, let’s take a look back at the weekend… mmmkay?

Friday night, I made this HungryGirl recipe (originally on my meal plan for Wednesday of last week!).

It’s really so simple to put together and it was extra yummy served with a side of steam-in-the-bag broccoli.

Weekend 1

On Saturday, I met up with a friend and completed 10 miles!

Weekend 2

I know some other bloggers might consider 10 miles chump change, but this was a big deal for me! We ended by going up a slight incline at the end, which was killer and perhaps poor planning on our part?!

I think I’m going to attempt 11 miles this coming Sunday, and then do a short run the weekend between the upcoming one and the half marathon… we’ll see how everything plays out and what exactly I have time for. I’m taking the “no stress” approach from here on out.

Saturday night, my family and I went out to dinner for birthday celebrations. Unfortunately, we didn’t end up going to the Kutztown Tavern as planned, because it started to snow. Instead we stayed local and stopped at my parents’ house afterwards for cake, ice cream, and presents.

Weekend 3

Sunday was filled with… grading. I’m at the bottom of a never-ending pile of stuff. I did take a break to enjoy some leftovers from Saturday’s dinner… I ordered scallops with angel hair pasta.

Weekend 4

Clearly, I had to swipe a giant roll as well.

And now you’re all caught up on my life!

How do you shake a bad day? After stuffing my face with Girl Scout cookies, I managed to squeeze in a quick FitnessGlo workout which helped me to feel a bit better!

    Ten miles is AWESOME! I definitely don’t think of it as chump change (especially after starting off at just a mile or two!) How exciting and such an accomplishment to have built up your endurance. I really desire to get there (PS-My run yesterday was HARD and it was only two miles. I think I need to eat beforehand despite it being a morning workout. I just didn’t have any energy!)

    As for a bad day: 1) I either spend time with Marty and it will cheer me up or 2) I need to be alone. Independent time. I will catch up on blogs, read or watch a television show on Netflix. I will also make a huge tub of popcorn to eat while doing one of these things :)

    Hope today is better!

      I don’t think of it like that either, but I see some people who log 10 miles like 5 days a week and I’m like “whaaa?!” haha I WISH I could spend time with Chris to cheer me up, but he works in the evenings! Stewie is a good mood booster too though!

      Samoas have coconut right? I’ve never been a huge fan of those because I’m not a big coconut person. However, I’ll never turn down ANY cookie! :-)
