Hi, guys! Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
How was your weekend? Or perhaps you're enjoying a long weekend today? My weekend was nice and included some relaxation, CrossFit, friends, and good food”¦ all the makings of a wonderful weekend.
Friday night, I made some spicy green juice for Mal and me, which we drank during Happy Hour while catching up with our DVR.
Confession: I miss drinking. There's just something about enjoying a glass of wine or cocktail and relaxing on the couch on a Friday night. Drinking a spicy green juice was a fun way to mix it up, but not the same. And, of course, all I could think about was how delicious it would taste with tequila! Ha! I am such a boozebag.
On Saturday morning, I did “Jerry” at CrossFit with 29 other people (big class), but, truthfully, I wasn't really feeling it. It was freezing outside (well, ok, it was in the 40s) and pouring rain, so I considered staying inside and just rowing for the entire workout. But once I saw everyone braving the weather, I bucked up and just did it, slow and steady. I was the very last person to finish (the final heat, Rx workout), and I came in at 27:00.
On Saturday night, Mal and I went out to dinner with Elizabeth and Nick at Abby Park. Mal and I used to frequent Abby Park all the time when we lived closer, but we hadn't been back in years, so I was especially looking forward to dining there. They have such good food!
To start, we shared some appetizers: crab dip with cheesy pita bread and the mezza platter, which came with chickpea hummus, edamame hummus, olive tapenade, sundried tomato tapenade, and grilled pita bread. Both were fabulous.
For my entrÃ©e, I ordered the Grilled Asparagus Salad with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts. Also excellent.
On the way home from Abby Park, Mal and I took a little detour to get froyo for dessert. SO GOOD!
Kerrie flew through the workout and finished in just over 16:00. Trying to keep up with her really pushed me, so I finished in 19:47. (I love that I'll see this workout again, probably after Baby Haupert arrives, so I'll be able to compare my times and hopefully improve!)
On Sunday afternoon, Mal, Murphy, and I headed to Kerrie's house to watch the Patriots game with some friends.
It was a dog party. These three are total clowns together.
Sadly, the Pats lost, but Denver played a really great game. Now, we're routing for the Seahawks!
