I cannot believe FitBloggin is next week! I am in full prep mode now and spent most of the weekend working. I'm trying to get all of my blog work done for the week by Sunday so I can actually 'relax' the 3 nights during the week I'm not teaching. Saturday I busted out a few articles that are due next week, developed a new recipe that will be posted tomorrow, completed a first draft of my FitBloggin presentation and wrapped up a couple other projects. Not the most exciting sounding weekend to some but I am so in love with what I do for my website and the other venues I work for I couldn't be happier! I took a break Saturday afternoon to run some errands. Food prep this week is the same as I did last week (I'm to concerned with other projects/deadlines to craft a new menu!) but here's a look at my grocery haul:
On the way to my car that day I came across this fantastical grasshopper:
As long as it's not a cockroach I'm ridiculously fascinated by bugs/animals. Speaking of roaches I found 2 (or possible the same one) two nights in a row last week in my house. It was crawling on the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling. I grabbed a broom with ninja speed and flung it off the wall - into the kitchen. I lost it for about 10 minutes when I found it IN MY SINK. I used the broom to sweep it out of there and it went UNDER one of the two massive bookshelves I have by the front door. I grabbed a thick piece of foam board since my hand wouldn't fit under there and jammed the board to the back wall over and over until I saw bug guts on it. I supermaned the bookshelf which must weigh 200 pounds out from the wall and swept the carcass outside.
I don't know why I just went into so much detail over that. I was traumatized for 48 hours after. I kept thinking I saw a roach every time I turned my head.
Sunday I woke up at 5 a.m. and went for a 7 mile sunrise run through downtown Pensacola. It's the longest run I've done since my half marathon in April! I took Saturday off from working out because I was super light-headed/dizzy most of the day on Friday. I think I was dehydrated so I gave myself a second rest day for the week and picked up some nuun to try out. I'm so behind the trend on this.
I'm not sure my stomach loved the mild carbonation to it but I'll get over it if it helps keep me hydrated. The flavor was nice - not super sweet and no weird aftertaste. I'll try it a few more times before I decide if I can see any difference in how hydrated I feel.
I stopped a few times on the run to take photos and walk up crazy ass hills.
Despite working about 15 hours this weekend I still had time to overdose on 90's television. I found Babysitters Club on Netflix (the original show) and that triggered a downward spiral into flannel shirts and Dave Matthews Band. I watched a few episodes of All That (seriously funny still), Doug and Party of Five.
I go so hard on the weekend.
Snapped this cute pic of Salem posted up in his favorite lookout spot.
What is your favorite 90's show?
