WARNING: do not go see the movie Marley and Me if you are not prepared to ball your eyes out
The boy and I went to see Marley and Me tonight… wow, I was practically sobbing. Movies about pets really get the tears goin with me. It was a really good movie though, I suggest everyone to go and see it 🙂
So this morning I had my yoga class. ahhh relaxation! It was such a great class, and i’m so excited to really grow with my yoga. Today was the first class of the 11 week session. I love my teacher and can’t wait to get back there next week. My schedule was getting all wacky so I changed my weekly session to Saturday mornings at 8. Kinda early, but a great way to start the weekend off on the right foot. I just felt completely at peace when I left, and was ready to tackle anything that came my way. Before the class I had a bowl of cereal with some berries, and then when i got back had a perfectly ripe fuji apple with almond butter. I’m liking this almond butter more and more every day. I got a free gym pass for my boyfriend, so before I left i grabbed a handful of puffins and a string cheese and off we went. Those espresso bikes I told you guys about before… awesomeee 🙂 I did a 7 mile bike ride today, and I am loving this workout machine. It took me about 30 minutes but it really kicked my butt. I loved it way more than spin. Instead of pretending you are biking up a hill, you are actually seeing the hill on the screen and then feeling the hill in the resistance that is automatically changed with the different parts of the course. I really want to add this into my cross training schedule more, it really worked up a huge sweat! I also did some strength training at the gym, and by the time i was done, all i had left were noodles for arms and legs. great workout! after the gym I headed on over to James Joyce Irish Pub across the street. It’s such a cute little place that I had never been to before. I got the chicken and feta salad that came with granny smith apples and some almonds with a raspberry vinaigrette. It was such a great salad, light and fresh. And don’t think I didn’t steal a few of the boys fries 🙂 can’t leave those out!
Dinner tonight was afghan! YUMM! I could really eat that baby pumpkin side dish every single day… for the rest of my life 😛 when its cooked right, it is so tender and perfect. I had the same dessert as last night, had to finish off the other half of that english muffin!
When we got to the movies we found out there was a fire outside and that we had to wait a few hours before we could be let in, so we took this opportunity to go into the mall and play with the puppies at the pet store! We played with a french mastiff…. this little puppy was the squishiest little girl, she was too sweet, i was in love with her. And don’t worry, i’ll post pictures of my puppy Eden soon. She was just so hyper today I couldn’t snag a good picture of her, they all ended up fuzzy!
Had a great time with the bf today…. sad that he’ll be leaving tomorrow around 2 pm. Its like the weekend is cut so much shorter because of travel. I really only get to see him about a day and a half when we visit. Well, i’ll be seeing him next week when I go to NY for the Martha Stewart taping 🙂
Just wanted to show you guys…. i made my first fire today! I don’t know if many of you have made a fire before, but its tough work! wanted to show off all my hard work, and to add another little picture of warmth to your day! check this baby out!
