|Hanging out on the couch|
In case you missed it here is what my typical work week looks like.
Lots of teaching and 3-4 of my very own workouts. That is why I need to put on the brakes sometimes. And that is just what I did on Friday. The studio where I work is closed for Labor Day Weekend. Friday just happened to be a cloudy, rainy day. After a busy first week of school Levi was perfectly happy to just hang out at home. We watched movies, cuddled under a quilt and made play dough. That evening I made a big batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and ate more than my fair share. On my lazy weekends I tend to eat a little more than usual. I feel kind of like a bear gathering up my fat stores. Except I am not preparing for hibernation, I am preparing for major and near constant activity.
On Saturday the family and I went out for brunch. Normally I would get something with fruit and eggs and all healthy-ish. This time I had biscuits and gravy with over-easy eggs.JF made the comment that he had never witnessed me eating biscuits and gravy in the 11 years we have been together. But I had been craving it and thought "why not?" And a couple of stolen bites of Levi's french toast. If you have never had biscuits and gravy from First Watch I highly suggest them.
Saturday evening was spent watching movies and snacking on my latest obsession: baguette and Brie.
So for Friday and Saturday I did not workout all all. This is a pretty big deal for a workout junkie like myself. But I can honestly say that I feel rested and re-energized from my lazy days. I was able to run 4.5 miles yesterday and today I am back to fruits, veggies and lots of lean protein...yay for nuts! I am also starting the Green Smoothie Challenge today, make sure to check Katherine's blog for a tasty smoothie recipe. 7 days of adding extra greens. I am so excited!

|Bread and brie. Add marinated artichokes for even more magic!|
How has your weekend been? What do you do when you feel the need to re-charge?
