I skipped a week-in-review kinda post last week because it would have been: I worked out really freaking hard, burned the candle at both ends finishing work so I could take Friday off and then did a photo shoot.
I would have loved for last week to be: sit on my couch all damn week after work, but AshleyÂ and LauraÂ were both back in town, so I pretended like i hadnâ€™t just flown back on a redeye from a photo shoot after a few hectic weeks and hung out every night.
I started the workout week slow, but as youâ€™ll see, I got my groove back later in the week.
Monday:Â Fly back from LA, sleep with head folded over tray table, wake up with major kinks in neck. Drop stuff at home, take 2-minute shower, go to work, very thankful for a top knot. Work until 8, blog and pass the eff out.
Tuesday:Â Slept in until 8:30 and wake up feeling slightly normal. Leave work, go on quick 3-miler as itâ€™s a gorgeous day. Meet up with Ashley and friends at Agave.Â After tacos and margaritas, chase that with more wineâ€¦and late-night pizza.
Wednesday:Â Wake up feeling remarkably okay, save for a slightly upset stomach.
Skip team workout at work in favor of leaving a bit early to make it to a Well + Good yoga event with Ashley at I Am You. The elevator there is ridiculously confusing (according to Yelp, Iâ€™m not the only one with that issue), so I donâ€™t get inâ€¦and go next door to Umbertoâ€™sÂ to wait as itâ€™s raining and I do not want to want to walk a step further. I sat down frustrated but after some people-watching (and wine, obviously), I leave in a better mood an hour later when Ashley shows up. We went to Corkbuzz, where I had some Brussels and rabbit. The rabbit, remarkably, does not taste like chicken. (It tastes something like a slightly richer duck to me.)
Thursday: I am seriously dragging by this point. For me, sleeping in later doesnâ€™t help much if Iâ€™m not in bed by a certain time, and I was up way too many nights past my bedtime. Iâ€™m not doing unlimited Uplift this month, but I couldnâ€™t resist booking a Sculpt Fusion class with Chelsea.Â I was still sore and creaky as hell from my flight and a little cranky, so I needed a big shot of zen and stretch. AS ALWAYS, Chelsea delivered. Probably went to sleep with a smile on my face because I was so happy to not have any further plans that night.
Friday:Â We got chicken and waffles at work for lunch, and I spent the entire rest of the day incredibly sick to my stomach, save for ducking out for a run with my coworkers. How I held things together for 3 miles, I have no idea. I tried not to let on to my coworkers how excited I was, but I was ALL-CAPS EXCITED to run! during the day! in nice weather! with my coworkers! who are training for their first halfs!
Spent several hours laying on my couch with a stomachache, and finally got it together to go meet Laura and her new man for a few drinks near me.Â
Will run for juice. As always, best way to start my Saturday.Â
Got a super-quick mani with Laura (St. Patrickâ€™s Day themed)(speaking of, read this article I wrote for work about healthy St. Patrickâ€™s Day recipes. I had so much fun writing it.)
And then headed home to NJ for the night for my cousinâ€™s 50th birthday. TOOK A 2-HOUR NAP before going out.Â
MUFFIN. She is almost 3 now and cuter than ever. (Yes, the top knot is most definitely my new thing after I was told it made me look 22.)
Tried this new spin studio near my parents this morning. Review TK soon!Â
Got a massageÂ at a new spa also near my parents. (Franklin Lakes is becoming quite the hotspot?)
Came back to the city and stopped by BirerriaÂ to cheers with some runner friends who ran the half today, and then have been working on real-work, Junior League work and blog-work all night.
Iâ€™m really trying hard to lighten up my calendar a bit this weekâ€¦but weâ€™ll see!Â
What were the highlights of your week?
