This weekend has felt way too short. So many things to do, yet not enough time!
You know what, I’m totally OK with that. I don’t really mind “the weekly grind” anymore since I’ve developed a work/life balance that works for me. It also helps that my new job really promotes actually having a life. We start a little bit later and it’s very rare that we work after 5 PM (and coming in on a weekend is thought to be a sin). Plus, we have a great time there and the atmosphere is very laid back. I basically love it.
Don’t get me wrong though, I still love the weekends!
One of the perks is that I can sleep in AND get in longer workouts.
That 90 minute spin workout basically destroyed me. Afterwards, I did my three mile cool down and my planks. I’m finally up to three minutes!
Hydration was necessary.
Recently, I’ve started drinking coconut water a lot more. The heat here is ridiculous and I’m doing everything I can to stay hydrated, especially considering how active I am. While other people at tennis are drinking Gatorade, I have one of these!
Another perk is that I can make pancakes.
I made these using my basic whole wheat batter, but added walnuts and banana slices. Of course they were topped with some pure maple syrup for good measure
Oh, yesterday, I made the 45 minute trip to the new Trader Joe’s in Fort Worth because I’m obsessed with their crunchy peanut butter.
Man, that place is tiny, but it was packed full of people. I still prefer Whole Foods and Central Market, but they have some neat things here. I’ve heard that they’re opening one a little bit closer to my area, so hopefully I can make it out there every once and awhile. You know, when I need more crunchy peanut butter (and less important things).
What is your favorite thing about the weekend?
