Wednesday - having Happy Hour with my friend Kristy on Wednesday night and catching up.
Thursday - having a date night with Ryan after not seeing him all week. Life is pretty crazy right now, so we went to our favorite sports bar, had nachos and beer, and caught up on life. Simple but exactly what I needed.
The low of my week was...work was rough this week! We had 2 people out on vacation, so having to do their work in addition to mine made for some long days!
My favorite outfit was This one! It was fun, springy, and comfortable. It's a battle to look "summer-y", but still able to bear the rigid 67 degree temps of my office....
For my workouts, I completed:
Monday - I power walked Miles for 2 miles, and did a 20 minute crossfit work out: 5 pull-ups, 20 push-ups, 25 weighted squats. No stopping!
Tuesday - Track workout - 16 x 400's, getting faster every grouping of 4. Butt kicker!!
Wednesday - Lifted Back & Bi's, Swam 1600 m (100 m sprints)
Thursday - Ran 9 miles
Friday - slept and slept and slept...sooo tired!
Saturday - Ran 8.5 super hilly and hot miles
At the end of this run, we ran to the top of this hill (it's a CRAZY incline). Such a reward getting to the top!
We always run up the hill, down the backside, and through the tunnel coming back. The tunnel is kind of a fun treat at the end of the run :)
Sunday - cycled 40 miles with my girls. Again, very hilly but awesome! (it's really hard to bike around Tucson without hills since we are in a mountainous valley...)
What I cooked - Ryan was not home most of the week, so I had many "salad/cheese/cracker meals". My most significant recipes were....Sweet Potato Tot Hotdish and S'mores Bars I made for Ryan to bring into work Sunday. I hate the word "tater", so refuse to refer to it as "tater tot hotdish". It's one of Ryan's favorite meals, and I loathe it. So make it for him to bring to work.
The best money I spent was $23 on my pedicure yesterday. I haven't had a Pedicure since May of 2014. Saturday after 2 hours of running errands, I decided to treat myself to a pedi. I would have been okay if she had just massaged my feet the entire time, and skipped the whole "toenail clipping/painting". :)
My plans this weekend included:
Pretty low key since Ryan's flew swing shift Sat & Sun nights.....
Friday night I got home and was spent, so Ryan poured us a glass of wine and we vacation planned.
Saturday - Ran with the girls, went to Starbucks with Ryan, did some shopping, spent the rest of the day running errands and doing work around the house until 9 pm!! Day went WAY TOO FAST!
Sunday - Biked 40 miles with my girls, went to church, and then went to a friend's house for a pool day/bbq. Finished my day taking Miles for a nice sunset walk.
What were your week's highlights?
