This weekend marked the official beginning of the fall, and it was basically as cliché as it gets. Wake up with a sore throat, head downstairs in my sweats where I cuddle up in a blanket, watch a chick flick while waiting for Ryan and Chelsey to wake up. It brings me back to our college years when we would go home for a weekend together. Aside from the sore throat, I loved it.
Plus, I got to snuggle up with my little boy for a bit.
Lazy Fall mornings are my favorite, although this one wasn’t as lazy as I was hoping. I had a nonstop weekend, with not much relaxing mixed in.
Saturday I had a date with Lindsay’s co-worker around 3:30, so I was able to get a great workout in prior to the date, along with picking up half of Ryan’s birthday gift.
- 4.5 mile run
- 2 sets of 13 standing side dumbbell crunches
- 2 sets of 13 skiing dumbbell squats
- 2 sets of 13 deadlift to upward row
- 20 minutes elliptical
- 10 minutes stairmaster
After that, I met up with the dating prospect and he bought us each a large bucket of balls to hit. Each. I SAID EACH! Holy freakin hell, I never thought the bucket would end. I had a lot of fun with my prospect and plan on seeing him again. Plus, he’s 6’2 with muscles. HELLLLLLLO!
After sweating my face off, I cleaned up quickly and met up with Lindsay and her new beau for a drink, well, they drank beers and I guzzled water. Then we demolished an order of barbecue chicken nachos. Oooops. The cheesy goodness was calling to me. I wish I had snapped a photo but I really didn’t want to freak the new beau out.
Sunday I woke up too early for a fall morning and went for a 4 mile run that felt too good to be true for a post nacho fest, before heading down to Boston to visit my bestie, Mike.
Mike and I grabbed brunch at Stephi’s on Tremont, where I ordered the Fruit Salad that came with homemade granola and honey yogurt. The meal was pretty good, maybe worth a B, but there could have been more yogurt and granola.
After brunch, we left the South End and enjoyed a little shopping on Newbury Street, and since I had never been, I was beyond excited!
North Face had an amazing running display, and I couldn’t help but to snap a photo of it for motivation. I also managed to document Mike checking his ass out in a pair of Diesel jeans. 🙂
I had an amazing day with my best friend. It’s difficult not being 15 minutes away, but he is succeeding in Boston and having the time of his life so I’m very happy for him. Plus, he’s only 45 minutes away, which isn’t too bad, and while I’m not a fan of Boston, he makes it better.
I’m exhausted and cannot wait to crawl into bed in 5.7 seconds. Hope you all had a fun Fall weekend!
