Another Productive Weekend

I know I’ve been sort of slacking on my blog posts lately. I had two in mind for last week, but neither really came to fruition. Oops! I’ve been focusing on my dieting and exercising though, and am getting ready for the Monument Ave 10k which I am running next weekend!

Regardless of my excuses, this past weekend was busy and FUN! I got more accomplished than I thought I would.

I hung out with my family, which is always a crazy time. My brother was in town from school, so we all headed up to my parent’s house.

That’s what you get for stealing my phone and taking unattractive pictures, brother.

Of course, since the family all got together, that meant that we ate…delicious food. And a lot of it! This weekend I had my very first Brazilian Steakhouse experience and it was OMGood. I think I ate about 5 lbs of just pure meat. My favorites were the bacon wrapped filet mignon, the lamb t-bone, the pork ribs, and the parmigiana crusted pork. Holy moly. I will write a full post about it soon!

So like I said, we don’t just go to Fogo de Chao any old day of the year. We were celebrating multiple occasions: my dad’s (belated) birthday, my parent’s wedding anniversary, and my sister being pregnant. So much in life to celebrate!!

With all that food being consumed, I decided I need to run more. To up my motivation factor, I went out and bought new running shoes.

Really though, my old shoes were over 2 years old, have trained and run 2 marathons with me, and were literally falling apart at the seams. I can’t wait to try these guys out today for the first time. I’m hoping to break them in well enough to run in them next weekend! I usually don’t go for Nike, but I couldn’t find any Adidas that were under $125 at the mall, so I sucked it up. I hope they don’t give me blisters…but it’ll be worth it since they’re bright orange!

Staying in the mindset of getting in shape, I also went out and bought a new bathing suit this weekend from Target. I’m officially ready for summer!

After shopping, I came home and helped my dad bottle his homebrew beer, while simultaneously getting a physics lesson on the specific gravity and density of beer. Must be an engineer thing.

Oh, and then I went and chopped off 10 inches of my hair. WHAAAAAT! I love it. It’s so much lighter and easier to manage.

Tonight I’m going to see THE HUNGER GAMES!! Ahhhh! And I am super pumped about it. I’ve read all the books and have heard great things about the movie. I have high expectations in general, so I hope it doesn’t let me down. Either way, I will still love the boy with the bread.

Hello there, Peeta!

Has anyone seen The Hunger Games yet? How is it? No spoilers!

    What kind of Nike’s did you get? I always buy the Free-Run and I love them. I never wore Nike before because they hurt my feet, but this is my second pair and I wouldn’t trade them. Also bought iNOV for the first time and they are really comfortable.
    Once you chop 10 inches off, you will want to go shorter.Took off almost 12inches back in Dec and just went for a trim the other day, and told them to make it even shorter. Its so much easier!
    Cannot wait to see the Hunger Games!
    Keep up all the good work and see you soon!

    • I got the Nike Dual Fushion. I’ve been running in them all week and so far, so good! Sometimes they don’t fit my fat feet, but these seem to be wide enough for me.

      You need to see the Hunger Games, it was really good! Especially if you’ve read the books!

  4. LOVE your haircut. Although your super long tresses were making me a little envious last time I saw you. You always have good hair. Maybe it is because you are constantly drying it whenever I try and call you. 🙂 Ahh memories. Good luck on your race next weekend! Sorry I am not there with you!

    • Hahahahaha! I don’t even blow dry my hair that often. But with this new haircut, it cuts the drying time in half, so you’re even less likely to call me while I’m drying it now!

  5. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading very slow for
    me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
