Weekend Recap

 Before I start off–I just want to thank each and every one of you who commented on my last post. It means more than you will ever know to hear your kind, sweet & heartfelt words on something that is very difficult for me to discuss. As I make improvements in my lifestyle I will be re-visiting that post and keeping ya’ll updated. Just know that things are changing and improvements are starting to happen 🙂 

What an amazing weekend I just had. I wish I could rewind and just press pause. A lot of time was spent with Tyler since my weekends here before I leave for training this summer are really winding down. Bittersweet-I want to go to training to get qualified but I don’t want to leave Tyler and my friends/family. Good thing it’s only 4 months.

Now for the weekend highlights! 

Friday: I FINALLY convinced drug Tyler to the theatre to se Safe Haven! Turns out he actually liked it. I thought it was really good-but the book was better {isn’t it always?}

After the movie we did a lot of relaxing and cracked open a bottle of Cherry Wine from Door County–swoon. 

Because my body has an internal alarm clock I woke up real early on Saturday while I let sleepyhead Tyler sleep in a bit longer. Filled my time reading the new Fitness with my favorite inspiration Jillian Michaels on the cover & some of my favorite coffee.Image

Once he finally got up we went for a nice workout. Followed by being bums. Eventually it was time to get ready for a dinner and some BADGER HOCKEY! 

We opted for ‘real people’ seats instead of the student section and it was a good call. We were in the third tier but center ice and it was so nice to sit and enjoy the game and each others company without a bunch of {drunk} college students.

Badgers ended up winning 4-1 and advancing. ON WISCONSIN! 

Sunday morning I woke up and did the Shamrock Shuffle 10k. Tyler didn’t do it because he didn’t want to spend $40 on it. But he did surprise me at mile 5 right before I scaled Mt Everest Observatory Hill.. it definitely helped me out. 

I finished in 57:24. Which I’ll take being that my previous PR was 1:00.01 {yes my goal that day was to beat 1hr..just my luck!} But disappointed a little because I was on course for a sub 55min except the hills killed me on the way back. 

Tyler and I got lunch at Cosi with his brother and just spent the rest of the day relaxing and doing some meal prep for the week. It was truly a GREAT weekend 🙂 

Time to fold some laundry and watch the Biggest Loser finale! ❤

Phone Dump!

Well… I finally caught that cold that I’ve been avoiding for weeks now. Tyler has been sick for months with a few ‘healthy’ days here and there so it was only a matter of time. So far it’s only isolated in my chest (i.e. deep barking cough) so cross your fingers that it stays that way and doesn’t become a complete head cold!
Needless to say, I left work after 2 hours this morning. I was going to try to make it to lunch but that just wasn’t going to happen.
Because I feel like garbage–here’s an Instagram dump of the happenings lately 🙂

Turns out I’m capable of dressing like a human being once in a while…only cause I had a work conference 😉

Image

Tyler and I studied together at a local coffee shop. He did his school work and I began my NASM work!

Image

Ty & I went to the Badger game on Sunday night… they killed Penn State 5-0. Anytime the Badgers get 5 goals your ticket stub gives you a free scoop of custard @ Culvers!

Image

Ordered a shirt from the amazing and always inspiring Dorothy & I was so excited to get it in the mail tomorrow. Taking it for an inaugural {TEMPO} tomorrow!

Since the sickness really set in on Monday I did a self-pedicure and had a glass of wine from Door County while watching The Bachelor 🙂 Image

I finally bought new Army boots while I was at my work conference at Ft McCoy. I need to break these shiny boots in before I head to Ft Leonard Wood for the summer. {if any readers are from St Louis area–let me know!}

Despite the chest cold, went for a lift & swim.

And got some of my favorite Vanilla Rooibos tea from Starbucks before hunkering in for the night.

On tonights agenda: Meal planning, baking brownies for Tyler who has a tough 2 weeks coming at school, and doing damage control on the DVR.

Tell Me: Have you gotten sick yet this winter? Any remedies?
