Green Apples, Wine, and Ice Cream

I hope that everyone had a great weekend. I had the best weekend I've had in a while =). I hung out with great friends, went for my first bike ride in Richmond, went to a great party on Saturday night, and saw a movie on Sunday. Good times.

On Friday, I forced myself to go to my Body Pump class after work and I'm glad that I did because it gave me an excuse to chill out, guilt free, on Saturday and Sunday. As you may recall, I was planning for a splurge on Friday night (pizza, ice cream, twizzlers) but, after my Body Pump class I didn't really feel like I "needed" the splurge anymore. So, instead, I ate a hearty meal of the following:

-Toasted ciabatta roll with a little butter
-Baked asparagus with EVOO and kosher salt
-Sliced green apple (I'm addicted to these!)
-Grilled chicken
-Skinny cow strawberry ice cream, yum!

A pretty hearty meal, but I was starving after Body Pump. After dinner, I went out with the girls and got a few light beers and a glass of wine =)

On Saturday, I was supposed to go to brunch with a friend. Unfortunately, I never made it there because it was the Richmond Marathon, and traffic was pretty much gridlocked in the city. So I decided to park my car and walk the roughly 2 miles home. It was a beautful day, and it felt good to get some exercise. After I got home, I decided to take my new bike out for a ride in Richmond. I rode to Carytown and then decided to bike to my car downtown. I love being able to get around on my bike =) Then, on Saturday night, I went to a wine bar with some friends and then went to a party at my neighbor's house.

All in all, it was a great weekend, and despite a little too much drinking, I still managed to save roughly 6 WPs for the rest of the week. The only drawback is that I did not a get chance to clean my house or do laundry, so I'm going to have to try to work that in during the week.

I hope that everyone has a happy Monday!

  1. Sounds like an awesome weekend! I love getting a workout in early (Friday night or Saturday morning) so that I don't have to worry too much about it for the rest of the weekend.
