I woke up yesterday morning and didn’t stop moving until my head hit my pillow late last night. I guess you could say my Saturday was filled will all-day action!
My morning started with a yoga class at Lululemon with my friend Kim. We heard there was a free class on Saturday morning, and neither of us had ever been to a Lululemon yoga class before, so we decided to check it out.
It was a “yoga for runners” class, so it focused on the hips, legs, and core. My quads were still sore from 13.3, so it definitely “hurt so good.”
After yoga, I said goodbye to Kim and then headed to 781 to watch our beasts do 13.3.
On the drive, I popped into Marylou’s for an iced coffee. Hawaiian Chocolate Nut was the decaf flavor of the day, so I ordered one with milk.
I watched the last heat of the day at 781, and then headed to Bob’s Muffin Shop with Mal and bunch of other CrossFit friends.
Bob’s is literally right down the street from where we live, but I had never heard of it until yesterday. (I know, sometimes I live under a rock.) It’s a great little breakfast spot, and the muffins look incredible. Unfortunately, we got there late in the day, and Bob’s didn’t have too many flavors left to choose from, but I have plans to get there bright and early one morning to try their French Toast muffin. Oh, yes, I do.
I ended up getting a grilled egg and cheese sandwich, which was quite tasty. Buttery, grilled English muffin = heaven.
After lunch, I went to get a manicure. I actually bought one of those home UV nail lamps with the shellac nail polishes, so I could give myself manicures at home. But, unfortunately, the machine that I bought just didn’t work—the polish was still wet and sticky after multiple cycles—so my nails were a complete mess from trying to do my own manicure. Long story short, my nails needed help, so I went to a salon to get them done.
When I got home, I made myself a couple of rice cakes with The Laughing Cow French onion cheese spread on top. Love this snack lately.
After I ate my snack, I planned to bake a batch of Morning Glory Muffins for our box’s Paleo potluck on Sunday, but I realized we were out of shredded coconut. I almost made the muffins without, but then I decided to quickly meal plan and just get our grocery shopping out of the way for the week. I meal planned, drove to the grocery shore, shopped, drove home, and put away the groceries in about an hour. No dillydallying!
Once I had my shredded coconut, I baked a huge batch of Morning Glory Muffins and let the pug lick the bowl of leftover mashed sweet potato.
He was psyched and really got into it!
While the muffins cooked, I quickly showered and got ready to go to our friend Mike’s birthday party. Hi, Ping!
I <3 Ping.
We celebrated Mike’s birthday with pizza.
And lots of laughs!
Mal and I (and Murphy) didn’t get home until almost midnight, so we headed straight to bed. It was quite an action-packed and fun-filled day!
