TGIF!!! And HOORAY for the weekend! Once I finish this post, I am shutting down my computer and my weekend officially begins.
The food situation in our kitchen was pretty pathetic this morning (we didn’t even have bananas!), so I grabbed the Kodiak Cake Mix and whipped up a big pancake for breakfast. I can always count on this stuff when there’s not much to work with in the kitchen—you just need to add water!
After breakfast, I drove to a doctor’s appointment. It was a long commute, so I grabbed a Peanut Butter Wonderful iced coffee for the road.
It tastes so good when it hits your lips!
I also grabbed an apple and stuck it in my purse in case I got hungry later on. It came in handy because I was starving after my appointment!
After my doctor’s appointment, I picked up Mal from work (I borrowed his car since mine is in the shop) and came home to make lunch.
It was well past 3:00 PM by the time I sat down to eat, so I pretty much shoveled lunch into my face. On the menu: a big salad with a leftover turkey burger, roasted Brussels sprouts, balsamic vinegar, and truffle oil.
After lunch, I craved something sweet, so I broke into one of the Wicked Good to Go ready-to-eat cupcakes that Monica sent me as a thank you for letting her stay at our house during Reach the Beach. Check out these babies! How adorable are they?!
Each jar is layered with cake, frosting, and other fun toppings. The “National (Security) Velvet” was outstanding—super moist red velvet cake and plenty of vanilla frosting. Holy yum! Each jar is about 1.5 cupcakes, so I only ate about half of it and saved the other half for later.
Now I’m off to take the pug for an afternoon walk, which will be my only exercise for the day. (Please note the excited-panicked face.)
I decided to skip CrossFit tonight (even though today’s WOD looks like a good one), so I’m well-rested for Saturday’s workout. I basically did two workouts yesterday, so my body definitely needs a break. Remember: rest days are part of your training too!
Happy WEEKEND, friends!
What do you have planned?
