I wish the time would slow down. I can’t believe it’s already Friday! It certainly doesn’t feel like it. I’m excited to bring you another recap post (they are my favorite.) This week has been very productive. I’ve been kicking butt on the 150 Mile June Walking Challenge, my dad and I have been building a back deck, and I’ve been knocking some other important things out. This weekend is going to be so much fun. Becca and I bought a giant double tube with a cooler, and we are going to float down the river. There may even be merlot involved, just saying. I’m not sure what sparked our idea, but this is going to be a blast.
Let’s start with last Friday. It was Dateline (per usual) and dinner at my place. Kyle and I decided to go separate ways with food choices. I don’t do buffalo, and I don’t do blue cheese…I threw together a quick salad, and he made buffalo chicken flat out pizzas.
He is obsessed with these. I love making mine with pepperoni or a Hawaiian one. You can find the recipe here!
On Saturday morning, Kyle and I took the pups for a long walk around the neighborhood. We did a lot of that this week to fit in the miles for the challenge. After our walk, we headed over to my parent’s house to lay out by the pool. I bought my mom a cute new polka dot swimming suit, and she looked adorable! I’m already a freckly person, so I have to lather on the sunscreen. I used Alba Botanica Hawaiian Coconut Sunscreen with SPF 50. It smells so good, and it’s organic.
After spending some time by the pool and letting the dogs run around the back, Kyle and I headed to the gym. I did a little circuit, and it completely sucked. I was not in the mood to workout, but at least I did something little.
I was so tired, so I made a cup of coffee when I got back. I watched some Nicolas Sparks movies with the pups, and just relaxed.
We went on our two-mile dog walk later in the evening and then got ready to meet up with Becca and her boyfriend for a double date.
Hello, Summer Chardonnay.
We headed to Legal Remedy Brewing in Rock Hill. We love the food and vibe of this brewery.
I ordered the steak salad. It came with cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, goat cheese, onions, fries, and a medium-rare steak.
After dinner, we headed back to my place to play Cards Against Humanity and have dessert. No matter how many times you play, it never gets old.
For breakfast on Sunday morning, I made an omelet with avocado on the side. The omelet was filled with spinach and goat cheese.
I headed to the Riverwalk on Sunday to get my six miles in. I walked super fast because I knew it was about to rain.
Lunch: fajita grilled chicken, avocado, goat cheese, romaine, and Greek dressing.
I spent Sunday afternoon relaxing and reading a book with the pups by my side.
Cherries & Greek yogurt while watching the NBA Playoffs! Honestly, how many games do these guys have to play!? I feel like basketball has been going on forever.
Early morning walks with the pups! Getting in those miles as much as I can.
Monday breakfast: pecans, avocado, omelet with goat cheese.
I stopped at Target to get a new book, and of course, I shopped for clothes…Excuse the no makeup and funny faces, but I was sending these to Becca so she could NAY OR YAY. And I ended up buying this top. I love stripes and off the shoulder tops!
I stopped at Earthfare on the way home to grab groceries so I could bake my afternoon away 🙂
Mid-day dog walk! The miles add up:)
I made my carb-less chocolate but with extra peanut butter, shredded coconut, almond extract, vanilla extract, and Swerve. It tastes the closest to sugar and doesn’t have any weird aftertaste! I am obsessed. Shaughna got me hooked on it in Hawaii.
Dinner: avocado, grilled chicken, fajita chicken, chipotle ranch, and romaine!
My nighttime tea 🙂 Lemon Ginger from Stash. Honestly, this is my favorite tea! I love the spice of the ginger.
I fit my five walking miles in early. I power walked around my neighborhood twice (without the dogs) and that ended up being exactly five miles. I also fit in more dog walks to build up the mileage even more.
I picked up my mom on her lunch hour and we headed to Earthfare to grab a bite to eat.
Grumples was really sick on Tuesday night. He wouldn’t even get off the couch to greet me, get up for a walk, and when we finally got outside, he just sat on the driveway. 🙁 He’s doing much better now and has his energy back. I wasn’t too concerned because he still had an appetite, but I think he goes through leg pain sometimes. Makes me sad 🙁
My dad came over bright and early on Wednesday morning so we could get started on the deck. We got all of the ground leveled and the deck boards down for day one.
I had “me” time after walking the dogs on Wednesday night. I had hot tea, a charcoal clay face mask, and cherries.
The deck is coming along!!!
Last night’s dinner: cod seasoned with soy sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and minced onion, roasted carrots, and a side salad!
I woke up early this morning, walked the dogs, and had a quick breakfast before my dad came over to finish the deck with me. I had Dave’s Killer Bread with peanut butter and a cup of coffee.
Taking a break from deck building lunch 🙂 Spring mix with grilled chicken, goat cheese, and a Greek dressing! 🙂
Keep an eye out for my deck post! 🙂
