Those are less than signs.. or greater than I suppose, depending on how you read it.. But I read the traditional left to right, so out loud it says, “Friday less than This weekend!”… SO why is this weekend so awesome?! WELL, despite the fact that I don’t get to see my boyfriend (he’s hanging out with a friend at his cottage for this friend’s birthday) I’m going home today after work!
HOME! I haven’t been home in some time! So I’m going to go home to swim my parent’s lake (it’s 17acres in total), then we’re going to my nephew’s birthday party (he’s 3!), and then on Sunday we’re watching my little sister in a parade! OH, and on top of that we (my parents and I) are going to see Despicable Me 2 tonight! YAY!
So… My weekend will be awesome! PLUS I’m going to be making these Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins (Nut Free) from PaleOMG! I figured if I’m going to a birthday party it was only right to make sure I made something ‘birthday’ approved.. And I’m pretty sure those will do it! Not sure if anyone but me will eat them.. but oh well, that means more for me! =D
And now onto some other fun stuff… Or rather some fun facts!
1. I’ve decided to start incorporating group training in my training plan.. Monday I got in an almost 21mile ride out of the shop I race for, Level Multisport! THEN, Thursday I went to the group run and they were having a Saucony demo.. Well I already run in Saucony so I just ran the 5.36 miles in my own shoes.. THEN upon returning to the shop they did a drawing for a new pair of Saucony’s.. and guess who won?! THIS GIRL!!! So I’m getting a pair of these beauties soon! (Same shoe that I already have, just the new model!) Yes.. I was STOKED!
2. Sometimes you have to treat yourself… I’ve been trying to get back down to race weight (put on a few pounds over 4th of July), so I’ve been trying to stay away from anything too sweet.. But after the group ride, and run, there’s a conveniently placed Starbucks on my way home.. So I decided that on those days I’m allowed to have a treat.. Hot Americano with a splash of cold heavy whipping cream.
3.. So I told you on Wednesday that I was going to the Farmer’s Market again.. So check out all of this awesome local food I got.. Peaches, cherries, peppers, & romaine lettuce! All of this for $9.50!
4. So I finally joined a new gym! I’ve joined the YMCA in my area… It’s not that I don’t have access to a gym, it’s just that I don’t like having to go to the gym RIGHT before or after work.. So the YMCA has a pool with good lap swim hours, a decent cardio/weights area, and some group exercise classes.. I’m excited to try out kickboxing sometime soon!!
5. I mentioned that my little sister is in a parade this weekend! Well that’s because the fair in the county I grew up in is starting this weekend! It makes me sad that I’m too old to hang out there all week, but at the same time it’s probably a good thing because I can’t handle all of that sugary/greasy/non-paleo food.. My body really doesn’t like it when I shock it like that! BUT I’m excited to at least be at the fair for awhile on Sunday!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE! =D
