Good morning anda very happy Monday to you! Also, CONGRATS to the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS for winning this year's Super Bowl! Holy cow, what an EPIC game. I don't even like football, and I was cheering and celebrating like a lunatic last night!! 🙂
Ok, so I love a good High Low High blog post, so here’s a recap of our weekend that shares both the high and low points from it. I always like to focus on the positive side of things, so there's typically more highs than lows. With that, here we go!
HIGH: CrossFit + donuts = favorite kind of Saturday morning. I paired up with a friend that I hadn't seen in awhile for the partner workout, so it was fun to catch up. Afterward, Qman and I shared a chocolate-coconut donut from Coffee Shack.
LOW: Mal feeling totally exhausted on Saturday morning and missing CrossFit. Poor guy.
HIGH: Mal offering to go grocery shopping instead. Whaaaattt? He actually said he felt like going to Trader Joe's. Well, ok then! My list was already set and ready to go-- thanks to my handy-dandy Designed to Fit Nutrition printable shopping list that told me exactly what we needed to buy for the week.
HIGH: Enjoying a "girl date" with my friend Marisa. We got manicures at MiniLuxe and then grabbed some wine and apps at Rustic Kitchen. Marisa and I talk just about everyday (via WhatsApp), but we haven't seen each other since New Years, so it was really great to hang out.
LOW: Mal coming down with a (man) cold. He wasn't feeling well when I got home, so I took over toddler duties while he went to bed early.
HIGH: Morning toddler cuddles + iced coffee on the couch + Mal waking up feeling much better + almond croissants for breakfast = THE BEST.
HIGH: Dominating my food prep for my Designed to Fit Nutrition meal plan this week. I finished everything early, so I relaxed on Sunday afternoon before the Super Bowl.
HIGH: Drinking a beer, which is the first in years. I actually used to drink beer ALL THE TIME. I even used to have a special category on CNC because I blogged about it so much. Then, I got Ulcerative Colitis and it no longer agreed with me. Boo. I've actually had a craving for beer for a couple of weeks now, so I decided to give it a try. It was just as tasty as I remembered!
LOW: Falling asleep on the couch and not finishing chores/tasks around the house. Whomp whomp. What a lame-o.
HIGH: Pug cuddles (obviously), which were highly illegal, but Mal thought Murphy and I were cute, so he allowed it.
HIGH: Going to our friends' Super Bowl party and eating lots and lots and LOTS of good food!
HIGH: Lady Gaga's halftime show, Quinn's stellar dance moves, and the Patriots winning the Super Bowl!
