It was a really rainy weekend here in the Washington, DC area. I think we’re all over the rain, but we have some hot and sunny days in the forecast this week! I’m looking forward to getting outside and seeing the sun after a few weeks of rain.
I kicked off the weekend Saturday morning at the Fit Foodie 5K. Neal and I were planning to run together for the third year in a row, but with the nasty weather, we decided that it’d be best for Neal to stay home with Magnolia. Thankfully my friend Becky was running the race, so I met up with her
bright and early.
The Fit Foodie 5K is a really run 5K and because of all the twists and turns around Fairfax, it goes by pretty quickly. Becky and I ran most of the race, walking 3 times as we went up a few hills. According to RunKeeper, we actually ran 3.25 miles, so I’m not 100% sure what my 5K time was. My clock said 38ish minutes, so I was pretty happy about that as it was pouring the entire race.
After the race, Becky and I walked through the John Hancock Vitality Village, which featured various food and drink samples, and then we headed over to Ted’s Bulletin for Breakfast. I ordered the Hot Cereal and a side of bacon, which was really delicious! It hit the spot after a cold and rainy race.
After breakfast I headed home and then spent the rest of the day with Magnolia while Neal was at the DC Divas game. I was able to take a long nap while Magnolia napped in the afternoon, which was really nice. OH, and I started watching The Walking Dead… I crushed season 1 on Saturday night and may have stayed up too late in order to do so. Oh well, it’s a really good show!
Sunday, after a morning at home, I ran to Target (yay for a new calendar) and Kohl’s and then headed to Leesburg for a friend’s baby shower. It was such a nasty drive to Virginia, but had an absolute blast at my friend’s shower. It’s so fun celebrating first time moms!
Sunday evening we hung out at home, enjoyed dinner as a family, and then I watched a few more episodes of The Walking Dead. A perfect way to close out the weekend.
Diet wise, I ended the weekend feeling really good! Saturday I enjoyed the late breakfast at Ted’s Bulletin and then had a big homemade taco salad for dinner and a yasso bar for dessert. Sunday I made scrambled eggs for breakfast (loaded with mushrooms, onions, and leftover taco meat), enjoyed a few appetizers and 2 cookies at the baby shower, and then had a small salad and 1/2 cup of pasta with meat sauce for dinner. One thing I’m working on is not eating after 9PM. I’m trying to treat 8PM as a cut off, but some nights I’m not able to eat dinner until after Magnolia goes to bed. 9PM is a realistic cut off. I was also really proud of my workouts this past week and enjoyed a rest day on Sunday.
All in all, it was a great weekend. A really rainy weekend, but a nice weekend.
