Good morning and HAPPY MONDAY to you! How was your weekend?
We had a really nice weekend over here. Once again, it flew by (holy cow), but only because we had such a great time and you know how it goes: Time flies when you’re having fun! Ha! Anyway, here’s a little recap from our weekend!
Friday afternoon: Quinn, Murphy, and I joined my friend Jess along with her nephew and dog for an afternoon walk. It was a beautiful day, so we walked and talked and enjoyed the fresh Fall air and scenery.
Friday night: We had friends over for dinner and drinks. We tried a new local place called Wild Ginger and it was pretty darn tasty!
Saturday: Saturday was all about my mom’s 60th birthday celebration. I can’t wait to tell you guys all about it! I’ll have a full recap tomorrow.
Sunday morning: It was my turn to sleep late, so Mal and Quinn made me blueberry pancakes and bacon for breakfast. They’re the best.
Mal, of course, used his recipe for amazing cake-like pancakes. Mmm!
Sunday afternoon: I joined my friend Marisa for a 10-mile run, which required a long-sleeve shirt, leggings, and GLOVES. I am so not ready for winter!
We bought a new rug for the living room. Everyone loved it, so we celebrated appropriately: Dance party!
Since it’s the start of a new week, I wanted to set some goals for myself to keep me motivated and accountable. Here’s what I want to accomplish this week (some of them are health-related, some are just life/errands/random stuff I’d like to get done).
Drink at least 32 ounces of water per day – Drinking water used to be one of my best healthy habits, but I’ve seriously slacked in recent months.
Make some nutritious meals – Last week, I didn’t have time to do my usual Sunday prep, so we totally winged it, which meant we didn’t eat as healthy as we normally do.
Attend at least 2 CrossFit classes – I signed up for an unlimited month membership at CrossFit South Shore at the end of September, but I’ve only made it to a whopping 4 classes so far. I really need to get my butt there more often.
Make a tofu breakfast scramble – My friend Jess told me about a delicious breakfast that she makes with scrambled tofu, nutritional yeast, and veggies, and it sounds so good. I’m dying to try it and expand my usual breakfast repertoire.
Buy tights for Quinn’s Halloween costume – We bought him an insanely adorable bald eagle costume that totally needs yellow/orange tights to go with it. We’re actually going to a Halloween event called “Zoo Howl” at the Franklin Park Zoo on Sunday, so I need to make sure I get them this week.
Question of the Day
Your turn! Share one of your goals for the week!
