The weather has been absolutely PERFECT here in Minneapolis this weekend – 70’s, sunny and no humidity. A great way to end the month of June :)
Because of the amazing weather going on outside and the fact that I ran 10 miles this morning and have about zero percent energy at the moment, this post is going to be short and sweet. Capeesh?
Friday night Kyle and I hit up Pizza Nea to use an expired Groupon – I get so mad when I realize that I missed using a great discount! – and then stayed out much too late enjoying wine and beer. This is part of the reason why my long run was today rather than on Saturday… that and the headache that seemed to appear out of nowhere after this night… ;)
Regardless of my headache on Saturday morning, I made it to the farmer’s market to stock up on some healthy greens and veggies for the week. I love my little farmer’s market! On that note, I have a random question… Is it “farmers” or “farmer’s” or “farmers'” market??! I never know where to put the dang apostrophe!
Around noon, my friends Jen and Natalie came over for some fun in the sun at my pool. Some pool time was just what I needed that afternoon. After gettin’ my tan on, I headed down the street to yoga to sweat out the remainder of my hangover. Not gonna lie, it was painful at first but totally worth it in the end!
Kyle and I were looking for a calm Friday evening so we headed to Dinkytown – the University of Minnesota’s campustown – and grabbed a super cheap dinner of burgers and fries at Annie’s and then – since I realized that I hadn’t had froyo since January, oh the shame!! – enjoyed a HUGE bowl of froyo at Yogurt Lab. Talk about a sugar high. I had no problem sleeping with all of that deliciousness in my belly on Saturday night!
And in case you’re wondering, I ate every last bit of that chocolate-y, sugary goodness in the photo below. Froyo is something that cannot and should not be shared!
Healthy living blogger right here, folks! No morning run + Burgers + Fries + Beer + Froyo! It’s all about moderation – you can’t eat veggies or strive for perfection all of the time ;)
This morning, I woke up early and headed out on my 10-miler. Phew – it wasn’t easy so I’m glad that it is over. More details on Tuesday!
After my run, I was ready to eat ALL of the food at my local Trader Joe’s plus the entire cheese market at the Whole Foods down the road and then stop for a gallon of froyo on the way back home… (read: HANGRY) Kyle
quickly with a frightened look in his eyes so kindly suggested that we head to Wilde Roast Cafe for brunch.
Best. Idea. EVER! I got the breakfast burro with avocado and it hit the spot.
The rest of today is going to be spent napping, blogging, studying, walking Mitchell and grocery shopping – My life is about as exciting as the Wall Street Journal. Wait… the WSJ might actually be more exciting. #truestory
