Another weekend is over , but I’m looking forward to the week ahead. For me, this is a super short week. I’m only working 3 days and then taking Thursday and Friday as vacation days. It’s time again for The Birdie Open! I will be heading down to Niagara Falls to meet my girlfriends for our annual golf weekend. I can’t wait! More on Birdie in the days to come…for now, let’s recap my weekend.
I enjoyed an awesome massage Friday night after work. As always, it was relaxing and soothing as my muscles always seem to be a little sore these days – thanks CrossFit ! One extra nice part of this massage was when my therapist asked if I had lost weight! I was very happy to say yes. It’s nice that other people are noticing the change.
The rest of my weekend was rather uneventful.
Saturday I spend most of the day down at my son’s school, helping with SpringFest. Saturday night, Rory, Jack and I went to a Japanese restaurant and enjoyed a delicious and entertaining dinner at the teppanyaki table. I didn’t get many good photos before my phone died, but did get just a few.
The shrimp in the pic are Jacko’s dinner. He didn’t want a full meal, so instead he polished off an order of edamame and then the shrimp. He did get a little bit of everything else, though, as the chef made sure he got a taste of just about everything he cooked on the table – some chicken, some steak, veggies and rice. It was a fantastic meal and we left happy and not too full. The meal took over 2 hours, so we had lots of time to digest each course before the next one came. It wasn’t a cheap meal, but we will definitely be going back so Nick can come with us next time.
Today was a quiet day with laundry, menu planning, groceries, and watching some Arrested Development. I only had a few days of food to worry about since I’ll be heading out on Thursday and Rory and the boys will be fending for themselves.
I actually made a double batch of burgers so I will have leftovers for some clean eating lunches this week at work. Seriously, I leftovers!
Yep..that’s a mini pretzel dipped in Nutella…directly from the jar. Not the healthiest snack, but I just needed a little chocolate hit..so good, but I really need to try to make sure this doesn’t become a habit!
This is the cutest little container of ice cream I have ever seen! Despite being tiny, it sure packs in the calories, at a whopping 280 for the 118ml container. I knew this was going to be a calorie packed treat, so after dinner I went for a 5k walk to be sure I got some exercise in today and not have to feel too guilty about enjoying my treat.
I enjoyed my walk. I listened to my tunes and felt good moving, knowing I was going to be enjoying my Haagen-Dazs soon!
I’ve got another busy week ahead:
Monday: CrossFit 8:30pm
Tuesday: Golf at 4:30, Ball Hockey at 8pm
Wednesday: Ball hockey 7pm, CrossFit 8:30pm (need to be sure I have a good lunch and snacks today, since I probably won’t have time for much dinner before I need to go to ball hockey…and then CrossFit after…wish me luck!)
Thursday: CrossFit 9:30am before I head down to Niagara Falls for my girls golf weekend
Friday: 18 holes of Golf at Peninsula Lakes Golf Course
Saturday: 18 holes of Golf at Thundering Waters – a John Daly course (I’m pretty sure this is where we will be playing our second round…should be fun)
Sunday: Winding up the Birdie Open and then staying in Niagara Falls for a conference until Wednesday morning. Looking forward to it. Hopefully I will see a few interesting presentations and have a chance to network with fellow market researchers.
Now, as is all too common, it is late and I need to get to bed. When will I learn!
How was your weekend?
What’s in store for the week ahead?
