Holiday Weekend

So, I guess I was gone for a bit.  Ya know how it goes, friends, family, food.  Times gets lost of course!

Anyhow, I headed home with Whit on Saturday in time to help out wit the BBQ we were going to have, and finally spend some time with my best college buddy, Dana (whom recently got engaged! Congrats lady!)!!!

(Please disregard the drunk look on my face…we were in Vegas.  Hahahahaha!!!)

Saturday flew by in a flash and it was great seeing Dana since it had been almost a year.  Sunday morning I was ready to get up and at it, which included a run!  Now don’t worry, I’ve slowly been working my miles back up since my ankle injury and today I was able to finish a good 11.11 miles!  I took my time and well, it was raining so that made for a whole different experience.

My stomach wasn’t having it after the run so I ended up making everyone late to Easter.  Oops.  Good grief, I wasn’t feeling well!  Anyhow, being as old as I am now, there was no egg hunting for me.  Although, my mom did make an awesome basket for me at home…that included the movie Charlie St. Cloud!!!  Seriously, such a good movie and loving Zac Efron! Haha…ok…

Anyhow, the little kids went after the eggs.  They were so anxious they couldn’t keep still for the camera (Eh Mama Pea, I see Gig’s twin in thereeeeeeeee!)


And then, there was the traditional badminton.  My brothers always play against my Dad and his brother and boy oh boy is it always a funny game.  Judging from the picture, they didn’t do too well.  Ok, I lied, they actually won.  Haha.  But look how intense they are!  People may or may not have fallen over a few times.


I got home last night late and hit the hay super early because I was exhausted.  The run on top of all the stuff and driving (over 400 miles!) we’d done this weekend I was pooped!

Since my stomach had been giving me trouble I settled on a pretty easy and all natural breakfast that included: 1/4C pb powder, 1/2C UNVAB, spinach, 1.5C strawberries, banana and guar gum.  I added in a 1/2C Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice – Gluten Free Cereal and 1/4C Lower Fat Vanilla Almond Granola by TJ’s.

Hours late I was ready for lunch so I sat down for leftovers.  Even the strawberries.

I made a veggie side dish for Easter but I don’t think people were fans, as my cousin’s husband’s famous Lasagna and homemade bread was there, so I took home all the leftovers.  Hey, I ain’t complaining!  My dish included asparagus, onion, sesame seeds, sesame seed oil, soy sauce, and FAVA BEANS!  Yep, I finally used them!

I mixed it with a few handfuls of chopped spinach for lunch, along with a piece of veggie sourdough bread from the bakery.  Great combo!

I was exhausted by the time I finished work so I had a zbar to keep me awake on the way home, and immediately went to pick up my kitty!

Man, somehow in the span of three days she’s learned how to jump on the top of the fridge.  Uh, how did the happen?  She’s not even allowed on the counter!!!  I’m gonna fix that …cause I have a squirt gun. Girl hates water. hah!

Time to watch Charlie St. Cloud because I haven’t seen it since it came out and…I’m tired.  I need a freak’n nap.  It’s gonna be a long…..week.  But my mantra?

“At this time next week, you’ll be in Kauai…you can do this.”
