First, holy cow – it’s been a week since I posted . . . WHERE did the time go??????? My goodness!!! I’m sorry – Did you know May is just around the corner? Anyone else think that time is FLYING?!?!
Second, I had one of the most spectacular Saturday’s ever. I also want to apologize because at each moment today I said, “We should get our picture taken”, but alas, there are only photos of us at Body Pump.
My day started off with a return to Body Pump. It’s been nearly a month since I was last there – sigh. It was beyond AWESOME to get back to it (though, my quads and buns may not be quite as happy – tomorrow is going to suck!). here are some quick shots – mostly just screwing around between tracks (shocker!).
These are my FAV pictures – the bottom left is my hardcore Bestie Bloggy Friend, Kimbelry knocking out military style push ups – look at those shoulder muscles and biceps! The bottom right photo was taken upside down while Kimberly was doing a side plank – I didn’t rotate it because it just cracks me up!
Bottom left photo is me after doing nearly ALL of those pesky lunges (MAN I HATE LUNGES). Bottom right is Kimberly next to our teacher, Corey.
That concludes the photo portion of this post – I’m so sorry because the rest of the day was super fun! I met up with my mom and we spent the whole day in the Big City just doing fun stuff.
We went to an little shop that sells Balsamics and Olive Oils. There are dozens and dozens and dozens of kinds and you can sample them all. WOW – how much fun and how delicious! Some of my FAVS were: Butter Olive Oil, Garlic Olive Oil, Blood Orange Olive Oil, Red Apple Balsamic, Cinnamon Pear Balsamic, Dark Chocolate Balsamic, Vanilla Balsamic, and Maple Balsamic. Incredible. I promise to go back so that I can get photos to show you. Have you ever heard of such a place? It was awesome.
We went to Culvers for lunch. Is there a Culvers where you live? There are several within an hour’s drive, but I' hadn’t been to one. I enjoyed a Walleye sandwich – YUM!
We went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond (twice, actually – forgot the 20% off coupon the first time).
We went to Williams Sonoma. Usually it’s a wonderful place, but there was a guy doing a cooking demonstration and burned onions – it really made for a foul smell . . . which remained on our clothes and in our hair.
We went to Sam’s Club – now that’s always a good time. We like to buy things and split them (really, who needs 24 gigantic oranges . . . 12 is plenty). We shared spinach, strawberries, oranges, and clorox wipes on this trip.
We went to the mall so I could return a defective bed quilt and pick up a necklace I ordered a few weeks ago.
We went to Party City – do you have one of those near you? Holy cow, I can so totally make upcoming races A LOT OF FUN with stuff from that store!!!!!
That’s about it – but it sure was a lot of fun!!!! Now I’m resting up for a 10K tomorrow . . . if we’re being honest, I haven’t run a single step in a month (since my last race, the Nutrti-Run). Eek – I’m sure this will be just the push in the right direction, though, to get back into it more faithfully. Did I mention the month has FLOWN by?????
How was your Saturday?
