Highlights From The Week & Weekend Eats


What a week.

I feel like I say that way too often but it’s how I feel these days! The fact that we are entering February this week makes me really happy though as it means we are getting closer to March.

A part of me hates that I rush the days away but gosh, aside from hockey season, I really want nothing to do with winter!

Let’s bullet point the highlights from the week, shall we?

  • LOTS of writing (I can talk all things weddings if you are interested)
  • A Monday work day with my pal Dina (we are working together again today!)
  • A really good fruit salad while at a think tank work meeting in the city on Tuesday

  • Three outdoor hockey games (and one more tonight!). Confession: I sat inside at the rink watching the Islanders play hockey on television most of the time rather than braving the cold to watch my son play Thursday night.

  • Several angry phone calls to the New York State health people to deal with re-certifying my health insurance (the worst!)
  • An oil change Friday morning plus a plug for the nail in my tire (why do my tires always attract nails?)
  • A whole lot of laundry (where does it come from?!)

And then there’s my really in-depth workout recap post from yesterday which explained my odd week with muscle soreness and lower mileage.

Thankfully I feel normal again! I just wish I could get outside more during the week to run rather than be inside almost everyday on the treadmill. When oh when will the sun start rising earlier?!

If you are looking for me this week, I will be here.


Favorite Weekend Eats:

I had a Red Mango parfait for lunch on Friday courtesy of a much appreciated Red Mango gift card I received earlier in the week. This is probably the only way I eat fresh berries these days!

Sushi Saturday night.


This pan of spicy fried brussels sprouts weren’t even too spicy for me! I really liked them.

The chocolate chips on the side of this chocolate cake were simply perfect. This isn’t Linda’s Fudge cake because remember, I am still annoyed that they changed Linda’s Fudge cake AND made it smaller.

And I am still cleaning the waffle maker from the mess my son made Saturday morning after my long run.

There was waffle batter caked all over this thing! Ugh.


Have a great week!

    This weekend was a pretty relaxed weekend with just errands and college work. But workout wise today will be a day for running indoors;I’m so ready for spring at this point too!

    I got my oil changed on Friday too! They said I need new belts and a new oil pan or something. I have such a hard time believing them though. Thankfully my cousin used to work for Honda and can fix up my van for cheaper AND he tells me the truth! That chocolate cake looks amazing. I’m obsessed with chocolate chips like that. YES.

    I would kill for one of those parfaits right about now. I was struggling with the lunch thing, and that looks like everything I didn’t know I wanted 😛 And I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing everything inside today. It’s not cold, but we’ve got some crazy ass wind that makes me not want to leave my house.

    3 things I did this weekend were run, get my tattoo colored (ouch!), and had dinner with friends Saturday night.

    I walked barefoot on the treadmill this morning because I didn’t want to put on running shoes quite yet (tattoo on the top of my foot).

    Best thing I ate this weekend was an ice cream sundae with cookie dough and salted caramel sauce!

    This weekend I started planning a surprise birthday party for my friend, set up my Australian bank account (studying abroad there yay!), and had a few great workouts! Best thing I ate was a yummy fruit salad at the hospital I was shadowing at!

    I ran inside this morning, mostly because I haven’t done laundry since my last outdoor run and I used up my best winter running gear. I could make do, but I was okay with a treadmill run today. Best thing I ate this weekend was Chipotle, honestly. It had been way too long. The close runner up was a ton of cereal, though, because it had also been way too long since I’d had cereal, and sometimes it just reeeeeally hits the spot!
