Hi friends, happy Monday! I hope you had a relaxing weekend. We kept it quiet; Nathan’s been fighting some sort of sickness basically since we got back from Baltimore so we both took it as a chance to catch up on some rest. That said, Friday I was out and about for the majority of the day getting work done on the car and looking for a new apartment! Our lease is up at the end of January and we’re ready for something new. Friday was a total bust as far as the apartment search was concerned, unfortunately, but I did find a pretty fantastic ginger molasses cookie so that helped to make up for it.
I decided that both Saturday and Sunday were going to be good days to rest. No gym time for this gal over the weekend! Sometimes when you just don’t feel like going, you need to accept that you’ll be better off cozying up on the couch with a nice, warm breakfast.
Besides, I had to make sure I was prepared for Truve’s holiday party last night! There were snacks and booze and lots of fun people. And after being away for 2 weeks, it was nice to be able to see everyone again.
Fo realz, if you’re in the bay area, you should absolutely check out Truve. I’ll even give you a pass for a free week of classes! There’s every type of class you could think of and all of the trainers are awesome. So no excuses!
Oh! And I think we found a place to live.. not bad for only starting to look on Friday, huh? Keep your fingers crossed for us. Hopefully we’ll have more good news later this week 🙂 And with that, we’re back to the daily grind!

Food for Thought
What’s your favorite holiday meal?
Eek! I can’t wait to hear more about this apartment. Keeping my fingers crossed that you hear good news sometime this week.
An entire rest weekend?! God, that sounds MARVELOUS right now!
Oh gosh, it was!
Can I say cookies are my favorite holiday meal? 🙂 Apartment hunting is tough… hope you find something soon!
I think cookies can definitely be a meal 😉 Thanks, fingers crossed this one works out!
Yum! I may be adding that Kung Pao chicken to my meal plan this week as well!
I think you should.. it looks so good!
Mmmm cookies! 😉 Good luck with the apartment hunting.
I hope the place works out for you! And the chili. 🙂
Oh the chili most definitely worked out! Love it 🙂
Good!!! SO happy you liked. 🙂
I’m seriously considering joining/buying classes at Truve after our trip back to MN for Christmas. If I do, I’ll definitely talk to you about that free week of classes to check it out! That would be awesome!
Do ittt! I’ll give you a free week pass next time I see you and I have some January specials to tell you about too 🙂
