Hello friends! How is your Monday trucking along? All is well over here!
After Melissa and Jarian’s couples baby shower on Saturday, the rest of our weekend was spent with friends! A group of six of us headed out on the lake on Sunday but had to come in a bit early thanks to thunderstorms. Luckily we had Taboo back at the house and spent the rest of the dreary afternoon playing games inside and snacking on freezer pops.
Do you guys remember these things? Why have they been out of my life for so long?
Ryan picked up a box of about 100 freezer pops (I’m pretty sure they’re only sold by the hundred, right!?) and we all enjoyed the throwback treat. Freezer pops take me back to hot days at summer camp as a kid.
Of course I doubled down on the reds and pinks because they’re always the best and we had a million of them, so no one had to take the dumpy green ones…
Once everyone left, Ryan and I had frozen pizza for dinner because the pickings were slim in our fridge and pantry and headed to bed early with our respective books. It felt good to hop in bed at a reasonable time, even though I am still waking up at least four times a night these days thanks to pregnancy-related potty breaks.
This morning, I woke up at 6 a.m., ate an egg sandwich and yogurt for breakfast, typed up my morning blog post and headed off to the gym to work through the morning before I had the opportunity to squeeze in my own workout around 11 a.m.
My sacroiliac pain is continuing to improve (HOORAY!) and I was able to take my cardio from the bike to the elliptical today. It was a lovely change of pace after a few weeks of biking-only workouts and I did about 20 minutes on the elliptical and 10 minutes of biking before completing some lower body strength exercises and calling it a day.
After my workout, I needed a shower and food, so I headed home to let Sadie out and make a quick lunch.
I had a Publix hot Cuban sandwich (thanks to leftover food we packed for the boat yesterday) and ate it along with a sliced apple and a sliced peach because I cannot get enough fruit these days.
Once I was done with lunch, I packaged up some of the clothes I pulled out of my closet and dresser over the weekend to send to ThredUp (<—highly recommended if you’re looking for an easy way to make some money off used clothing/accessories) and will be dropping them off at the post office on my way back to the gym.
