Weekend Shenanigans

Words cannot describe how refreshed I feel after this weekend. On Friday, we had some crazy storms roll through here…again. It was so dark at 2:00pm that the street lights came on! They rolled out of here after a few hours, and the sun came back out in the evening. We decided to pick up some pizzas from Irontsone, our favorite!

Saturday morning it was rainy, so after breakfast I cleaned up the kitchen and swept and mopped the floors on the main level of the house. After that, we got showers and decided to try to eat lunch out somewhere. Chris mentioned SoHo Social and I got the idea to text Laura to see if they wanted to meet us over there. We haven’t hung out properly in over a year. SoHo was packed, but Tostadas across the courtyard wasn’t, so we grabbed a seat on their patio.

Words cannot describe how amazing it felt to hang out with them! Chris and B talked, the kids hung out and played, we ate some delicious queso and tacos…it was so good for the soul!

When I was tucking Zoe into bed that evening she said, “Mommy, today was the best day. I got to see S.” Heart melted.

Sunday morning I read several chapters of The Sanatorium before everyone woke up. I decided to take a day off work, as I am usually up and working very early, even on the weekends. It was so nice to just sit and read. I am almost done with the book ahhhhh!!! Have you read it yet? So good!

After breakfast, Zoe and I took Mac out on the deck and I shaved him. It takes about 2 hours and is exhausting. He looks so handsome and much less like a mop. We grilled some burgers for lunch, and made homemade fries in the air fryer.

We hung out for awhile after that, and decided to have an ice cream car picnic! We went to Freddies and grabbed some custard and parked in am empty lot and sat in the back and ate our ice cream.

Zoe was obsessed with this hate yesterday. She cracks me up. We hit up Best Buy after, and there is still nothing to be had in our store. The shelves are so empty, is that the case for any of you? I guess it is going to take a long time to make up for production shut down at the beginning of all this?

Chris likes to have steak on Sunday nights, so I stopped by Publix on the way home and grabbed him a steak and me some spicy shrimp sushi with brown rice. So good. And that was a wrap on the weekend!

I slacked off big time last week on my workouts. There were a few mornings I just needed to get to work and wasn’t in the mood to work out. I didn’t take that time for myself, and after a week of it, I am not feeling my best. I think it is important to listen to your body, and if you need a break, take it. I was honest with myself last week, and realized I was really just going through the motions of my workouts the last few weeks in general without any purpose. My eating has been horrible, no help from the Cadbury eggs that were available the last month. I lost my mojo for meal prepping/planning and I was just tired of thinking about food for everyone every day.

I am feeling refocused this week. I knocked out my usual upper body Monday this morning and it felt good. I need a new plan. I do better when I have a plan and some rules to follow. I am not going to do anything restrictive like Keto again. I need something sustainable. Something that allows pizza Fridays, queso with friends and ice cream picnics. I need to reinstate our daily walks before lunch, and family walks in the evenings. And I think I am going to work on organizing the fridge and pantry again this week. I feel like if we have a better way of showcasing the healthier options and making everything look appetizing and organized…I will feel more excited about it all in general.

Mainly just throwing all that out there for accountability for myself. Do you ever feel the need to refocus like that? Maybe a spring cleaning of my lifestyle. Though, the house could use some spring cleaning as well! I hope you all have a great week!

Linking up with Tanya.

    I love to hear that you had a refreshing weekend! Those are the best and how sweet that Zoe had the best time, too. We had some crazy storms last night that literally shook our house. Needless to say, we’re all struggling today with the lack of sleep and the boys needing to be virtual for the week as a precaution after spring break. Is it time for wine yet? haha

    Saturday was so so so good. I love seeing the kiddos play together, plus queso!!! I definitely feel you on the last few paragraphs – I have lost all mojo for some reason. I still get my workouts in, but I could care less about meal planning, eating healthy – doing anything really. Here’s to a better week.

    I totally agree that you need to stop and realize that you need a break. It is hard for us all to do that, so I am glad that you did. I need to listen to my body too. So awesome that you got to go out and spend time with friends. That helps out so much.

    Sounds like a lovely weekend. I have The Sanatorium and hope to read it soon. An ice cream car picnic sounds like such a fun idea And sometimes you just need to rest and relax, but that’s great you’re getting back to moving again. I need to start focusing more on food and healthier eating.
