Happy Saturday! Have you entered my Chobani giveaway yet? I mean really, who wouldn’t want a free case of Greek yogurt?!
I hope you had a great 4th of July and got to see some awesome fireworks. Nathan and I met up with some friends at Gordon Biersch for dinner and drinks by the water and were able to watch the fireworks from our seats at the restaurant. Yes, it may have been through some trees, but they are city trees so they’re little 🙂
I had the day off yesterday so I took that time to sleep in [all the way until 8:30!], get in an awesome workout, and run some very important errands.
I was way past due to get my nails done and for a haircut! Really, it was more of a chopping.. a little shorter than I expected and prefer, but I’ll get used to it. And it’ll grow. I think I’ll need to invest in some wider headbands though because there is no way I’m going to be able to put my hair back for workouts! Any recommendations are welcome 🙂
And speaking of workouts, bootcamp this week was rough! Part of what I love about it is having the ability to scale the workouts to your own level. This week, two of the workouts concentrated on heavier weights and less reps and I really took advantage of that. My hands were red, my arms and legs were shaking, and it hurt so good. These are the workouts that give you real results [and I’m clearly proud of that.. #noshame].
These are the workouts that helped me to get wedding ready and they’re also the workouts that keep me going back for more. The constant changes in routine and moves keep you and your muscles guessing. It also doesn’t hurt that I don’t have to think about what kind of workout I want to do each day! And I’m definitely appreciating my rest day today.
It’s so nice to still have a full weekend ahead of me. We got early and went to breakfast at one of our favorite spots right down the street, Spoons.
We went there the day before the wedding for a little breakfast escape. It’s one of the only places where I don’t get eggs benedict for breakfast. Their homemade black bean chili has a nice kick that has just the right amount of spice. I totally converted Nathan too.. he got the same breakfast with added chorizo. Good thing we’re so different, right?
I’m sure we’ll be running around the rest of the day today and tomorrow morning we’ll be up early again to grab some fresh fruits and veggies from the farmers’ market. My fave! Enjoy your weekend!
