Hi, friends! How was your weekend? I hope you all had a great Easter weekend with your loved ones!
Today, I wanted to send special thoughts and prayers to all those running Boston. While Boston is just a pipe dream to me, I am a runner, and as runners, we stick together.
Alright, now let’s do a recap of the weekend, starting with Friday. I decided to try a new-to-me breakfast Friday morning: Earnest Eats cereal. I’m officially hooked.
Lunch was nothing noteworthy (grilled chicken, veggies and rice from the cafe downstairs in my office). My snack was a banana.
After work, I made a pitstop at the grocery store and picked up some Cadbury mini eggs. (I texted Mark on the way home saying, “I got something for you!” and his response was, “You know those are for you…” Whoops.)
PS, how amazing do these Cadbury mini eggs brownies look!? I may have to make these next year…
After I ate half the bag, I headed out for a run. Surprisingly, the sugar high helped me out and I ended up with 3 quick miles @ an 8:27 pace.
How cute is this single bluebonnet I saw on my run?!
As soon as I finished my run, I quickly showered and Mark and I headed out to meet his best friend and his best friend’s girlfriend for a double date at the horse races. I’ve only been to Lone Star Park once, but I have to admit, I’m not a huge horse racing fan. I am such an animal lover and I just can’t get past the fact that the horses are forced to race. Anywayyyyy… we still had a good time getting to hang out with friends!
Saturday morning I was up early. For breakfast, I threw together a peanut butter and banana smoothie (one banana, a spoonful of peanut butter, ground up oatmeal ((I was out of Greek yogurt)) and almond milk).
As soon as I finished my breakfast smoothie, I got ready to attend my first FlyWheel class. I was offered a free month membership at FlyWheel and was so, so excited to give it a try. I’ve driven by the studio so many times before, but never actually attended a class!
I don’t want to share too much because I will be writing a full review of my experience and will be doing a FlyWheel giveaway at the end of the week, so stay tuned for details on that! Trust me when I say you will want to enter. This was one of the sweatiest and most fun cycling workouts I’ve done in quite awhile. I am planning to take one of the FlyBarre classes either this evening or tomorrow too!
I headed home after my FlyWheel workout to grab Mark and head to the Farmers Market. I haven’t been to a Farmers Market since I was a kid, but I love the local, fresh food and produce choices! Mark and I snagged a few things, but I’ll talk more about that tomorrow. :)
For the remainder of the day, we did things around the house. Lunch was breakfast burritos.
Last week, Mark promised me we could get sushi this weekend, so I was (literally) counting down the minutes. I have a sushi problem. We tried a new sushi place (we usually go to the same local sushi restaurant), which wasn’t my favorite. But you live and learn, right?
To make up for the swing and miss with our sushi, we decided to treat ourselves to some Yogurtland. I need to take it easy on the treats…but I seriously love trying the new flavors of the week at Yogurtland!
Easter morning, Mark and I enjoyed breakfast at home before heading off to church. Breakfast for me was two eggs and a piece of toast topped with almond butter and strawberries.
After Easter service, we met up with my family for an Easter lunch. I ordered the brisket tacos. So, so good!
Loved getting to spend time with my family on Easter!
Best husband ever. :)
The remainder of Sunday was lazy… to quite lazy. I loved it. For dinner, Mark grilled up some grass fed beef we picked up at the Farmers Market on Saturday. Burgers at their finest!
And last, but certainly not least. I have to share my excitement from Friday when Bart Yasso liked my photo on Instagram. Runner geek out moment!
Okay, now that you know everything about my weekend, I want to hear about yours!
What did you do for Easter? Did you have anything tasty this weekend?
