Although I miss my blog friends like crazy, it was nice to come home today–especially since I was home by 1pm. Usually when I go away for the weekend, I don’t come back until much later on Sunday so that I can maximize my time wherever I am. After being away for five days though, I was dying to get home.
It would have been really easy for me to blow off my workout when I got back, but there’s something about hanging out at a conference called Fitbloggin’ that inspires you to get your workout in when you get home, and so I went for a 12-mile bike ride.
I rode up the Hudson River path for about 6 miles and then turned around. I’m trying to just enjoy biking without getting obsessed with my speed, so I rode sans Garmin.
I do <3 my bike.
I also <3 sunshine. But you can’t win them all.
I went for my bike ride before unpacking, because I knew that once I got comfy, I wouldn’t want to get off my couch. It’s kind of like working out in the morning, I guess. Just work out before you can start making excuses.
I rode down to Energy Kitchen and got a turkey burger, potatoes and broccoli
Finally, I went back to my apartment and unpacked. Including all of this swag from Fitbloggin’. I’m most excited to try out the food scale.
Look who’s back! Thank god. I missed this little face 😀 My mom brought him in this afternoon because she had some stuff she had to pick up in the city.
With no food in the house, I also ordered dinner. Sushi and a veggie spring roll.
And now? It’s time to crash hard.
I think sushi is my ritual after I’ve come back from a weekend away. Do you have any food you always eat after you’ve been away?
