Notes on the weekend: Running, weights, new people and family

The weekend has come to a close and I’m glad to report that this week was a good one.  Last weekend I was so down in the dumps and miserable, but things were totally different this week.  On Saturday morning, I got up made breakfast and was ready to run with Willie.


I did a short 4 mile run and then headed off to do my weight training at the gym. This is probably a big reason why I was having a good weekend. I made it to weight training throughout the week and I was really proud of myself. I achieved a small goal I set for myself and felt good. So I rewarded myself with weight training on Saturday! I want a nice TONED body and weight training is the way to get there.


Willie and I then went to talk to a group of people about our weight loss story. This was probably the best part of the day. Being able to share our story is great, but also being around people who know how you feel and just talking to them about it is even better. We met a great group of people and hopefully inspired some to keep on pushing forward. This was truly a rewarding experience!


Saturday night is our date night, but we convinced my momma to come along too. We went to our favorite spot, Pei Wei, for dinner. It was good fun and I’m glad we got my mom out of the house even if it was just for an hour or so! We love Pei Wei because it stays within our nutritional comfort zone.  I just love to get a big ole plate of veggies which I forgot to take pictures of, but I will next time.

Sunday was filled with errands of grocery shopping, changing light bulbs, making the breakfast for the week…and of course hanging out with my friend Julie.  We went to get pedicures but I didn’t take pictures because it was one of the worst experiences of my life.  The company was great so that is all that mattered.  We sat there and talked…and sometimes it’s just nice to do that.  I had a really great time. Sunday is a rest day in our household, but we planned on taking a bike ride. Didn’t happen but it’s ok because we did get to spend a lot of time together! It was much needed.

We ended our Sunday with a trip to Which Wich which was truly great.  I was over the moon when Willie ordered his sandwich as a “lettucewich” and it came looking like a real sandwich.  Yes, those little things make me excited!  We were both totally amazed and thrilled.  I got a black bean patty bowl with salsa and he got a black bean patty lettucewich!


So what did you do this weekend? Anything fun and different or just the same old thing? We want to hear about how your weekend went in the comments!
