Happy Monday my friends, how are you today? Did you have a good weekend? Please tell me you didn’t get snow like we did in MA! It was crazy, it literally snowed the ENTIRE day and night on Saturday, thankfully it didn’t accumulate too much more than a dusting that stayed on the ground! This weather is so crazy! Anyways, let’s take a look at last week in the Weekly Wrap Up!
Monday: I ran 2 miles and then lifted biceps, shoulders and back. I was still not feeling 100% from that little stomach bug over the weekend, but I felt good enough to get a little workout in. The day would get worse as the hours passed at work, however, thankfully it wasn’t my health, just the day in general. It was one of the worst days I have had at work ever and I left feeling very frustrated, angry and overall, just down. I also ended up working well past 10 pm which was even more annoying to me.
Tuesday: I didn’t sleep more than a few hours on Monday night but I pushed myself to do an interval run of 3 miles at an 8:12 overall pace and thankfully it didn’t feel too bad! I had another pretty crappy day at work and felt off kilter all day, thankfully, I was looking forward to game night with Robyn.
Wednesday: I didn’t sleep well again on Tuesday night, tossing and turning all night, stress really messes with me but I trudged through Spin class and the rest of the day. My agency was late sending me critical materials in the evening and I ended up working really late again.
Thursday: Another night of little sleep and I just didn’t have a lot in me to give. I ran 1 mile and then lifted shoulders, biceps, legs, back and triceps and was exhausted. Spent another night waiting for my agency to miss important deadlines and worked until almost 10 pm again.
Friday: Broken record? Can you guess how I slept? Yeah…but I was able to muster through 3.5 miles while watching 1/2 of Grey’s Anatomy. By the time I got out of work, I felt sick to my stomach because I was so tired. My agency owed me something before I left for the day and didn’t make the deadline so I spent a few hours on the phone with them while driving then picked up Ashton from daycare. We went to an indoor play place he loves and then grabbed pizza and headed home. We were being goofy for the camera too! I just love this kid!
Saturday: We woke up kind of late on Saturday and were rushing around to get breakfast and get to sports camp. This week was football and Ashton was hamming it up like usual! (And yes, he needs a haircut desperately!)
We got home from sports camp, had some lunch and then during Ashton’s nap, I ran 7 miles in 60 minutes flat while finishing up the rest of Grey’s and then watching the newest episode of Scandal. I tried my new shoes for the first time and they felt great! I think I am really going to love having a treadmill at home! The convenience of being able to go downstairs and run during nap time is amazing!
After nap we played for a while, had dinner and then I headed out to meet the girls. We are trying to do a monthly get together where each of us gets to pick a place that we want to go and we do it. Aislyn picked bowling, so we headed out to bowl. I hadn’t been bowling in many years, but it was a lot of fun and let me tell you, it was PACKED. Who knew bowling was such a popular thing to do on a Saturday night?
We also ran into a furries convention at the bowling alley, there were about 100 of them in costume. Don’t make the same mistake I did and Google it, just look at the picture because you can’t unlearn what it is!
Sunday: On Sunday I rested. We didn’t get up until close to 9 am, had a leisurely breakfast and then went grocery shopping at Wegmans (my favorite place to go–seriously, its amazing!!) We got home, had lunch and Ashton took a nap while I prepped all my meals for the week (I am starting a new plan today that I will talk more about later on the blog). When he woke up, it was pretty nice outside so we went for a little family walk/hike outside for about an hour or so.
It was so nice to get outdoors and play and it made me hope that Spring gets here as fast as possible! Afterwards, we had dinner, played a little more and then it was bedtime.
Well, that’s it for the Weekly Wrap Up. Overall I was pretty happy with my workouts given the hellish week I had a work and what little sleep I was running on. I REALLY hope this week is better at work and that I can get into a groove with my new workout plan. Wish me luck!
I hope you all have a great Monday!!
