Food, Fitness & Fun

This holiday weekend went by in a flash! It ended up being much busier than planned, but in a good way. Nevertheless, it left me exhausted!

Here's a quick rundown of what we were up to...

I was too busy enjoying myself to take pictures of any of my eats, but I enjoyed lots of yummy, healthy dishes, along with a few guilty pleasures, including:

- Grilled BBQ tempeh with grilled zucchini & onions
- Asian Quinoa Salad
- Vegan cornbread from Whole Foods (the little munchkins looove this!)
- Smirnoff orange vodka mixed with natural orange soda (dangerous stuff...)

I did 2 different Jackie Warner videos, along with my 9-mile training run. My run wasn't great. I struggled a bit both physically and mentally. But the fact that I was 70 degrees, dry and breezy when I headed out the door at 7 am on Saturday definitely helped!

We had lots of quality family time, as well as lots of social time (which, sadly, is rare for us!). We hit the pool on Friday and Saturday...

...had a family movie night on Friday followed by some sparklers...

...spent time grilling, drinking, listening to music, and chatting out on the deck at (new) friends' house...

...ended the weekend with a delicious vegan meal at our neighbors' house (no picture here, so use your imagination).

This mommy stayed up way too late night, so it's early bedtime tonight! Here's hoping the week goes by fast so we can get our vacation started!!

What was the best part of your weekend?
