The rest of my weekend was spent with friends and family relaxing and getting our exercise on! The added endorphins are doing wonders for my attitude and outlook on life and it's cheaper than shopping or therapy.
On Saturday night we went to dinner with some friends and ate some Middle Eastern cuisine. They had everything! I settled on some lentil soup and a hummus appetizer because I was not feeling too adventurous and one can never go wrong with hummus, right? The pita bread was super fluffy and good.
I didn't take pictures of the food, but we did get a picture of us taken by a friend, courtesy of facebook!
We also went to a hookah bar and hung out with friends and talked. It was such a fun, relaxing night and much needed!
On Sunday, we woke up at our favorite B&B (that's what we call hubby's mom's house) and were spoiled with a nice brunch. We loafed around and watched football and then we went to the gym for a training session with my MIL. I was in charge of cardio and core and hubby was in charge of providing a strength training routine. I gave myself a heck of a workout and ran 3 miles in 32 minutes while doing intervals with my new training partner :)! I tried to summon my inner Jillian but barely mustered a Bob impression! She did really well and I was impressed. After our treadmill interval session, we did another 15 minutes on bike and then moved on to core:
- Regular plank
- Side plank
- Sit-ups on balance ball
- Sit-ups on balance ball with feet up
- Medicine ball oblique twists
After our workout we refueled with a healthy (and upside down) dinner:
The best part? Leftovers for lunch:
I also had this bundle of fruit in my lunchbox:
I've made some updates to my 'About Me' entry and my 'Weight Loss' entries. Read 'em if you're bored or want to know all about me! I'm also going to try to link them to my main page.
Does anyone else think of the movie Tommy Boy when they hear or read 'housekeeping'?
