For the first time in a few weeks, I got to really have a relaxing weekend. I got everything done that I wanted to but without feeling stressed or overwhelmed, and with plenty of downtime.
I slept in until a little after 8 and then made myself a good breakfast:
After breakfast, I lounged around for a bit and then went to the exercise room for some strength work. My strength routine is getting better every time I do it! I’m getting through it more easily and I upped the weights on some of the moves. For someone who has never made strength a priority, this feels really good!
I also rode on the bike for about 10 minutes for my post-strength workout. I like to do a little cardio to help my legs with recovery.
After my workout, I stretched and showered and threw together some leftovers for lunch:
Salad on the side:
Yum! After lunch, I started on my weekly meal prep. I cooked up some chickpeas and great northern beans for meals this week, and prepared another batch of hummus. Allen and I also made granola bars. We’re getting closer to the perfect bar: the flavor is there but the bars are still more crumbly than we’d like, so we’ll have to work on that.
In between all of this cooking, I had a nice snack of dark chocolate covered almonds and green tea:
My white beans went into my dinner tonight: pasta with pesto, peas and white beans.
Dessert tonight was a treat from Andy’s Frozen Custard! I got a banana concrete and now I am STUFFED.
