Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
As you bbq and hit the pool, please take a moment to remember all those who died fighting for us, our freedoms, and this nation as well as those who are missing in action and are prisoners of war.
I don’t know about you, but I love 3 day weekends.
Saturday, I hit up the local tattoo parlor to touch-up my running tattoo and add 26.2 to it. It took less than 5 minutes of total to complete.
Afterwards, honey bunny and I went to Queens to visit our friends James and Estelle, whom we have not seen in ages. They moved into the cutest apartment and have such a pretty cat named Pepper. The weather was super crappy, which was a bummer. So we went to Alewife for grub and beer.
The bar had one of the most impressive beer lists ever. It was so much fun trying out different beers. I shared a cheese plate and then settled for a veggie burger that came with garlic fries. Oh my goodness. So, so good!
The Perfect Crime: Smoking Gun (smoked stout from Belgium)
Sunday was a pretty lazy day; it was nice to sleep in. We ran our regular errands and I went to the mall and hit up a few sales. I finally caved and bought myself a Polar FT4. I cannot wait to use it! And it’s pink!
So, tomorrow the weather is supposed to be beautiful. I would love to go to the beach, but I will settle for my MIL’s heated pool which is 10 minutes away, hehehe. And we’re having dinner there too – fun!
With Monday being a holiday, the gym will be closed so I am going begin the Runner’s World run streak (goes through July 4th). The run streak is easy – 1 mile every day until the fourth of July and do some strength training homework my personal trainer gave me. Then beginning Tuesday, I will resume my regular weekly class schedule.
I normally do not share my menu planning for the week, but I am going to try some new recipes and thought it’d be fun to share:
M: dinner at mother in law’s – word on the street is that we are having shish kebabs .
T: chicken curry (recipe from the March issue of Skinny Slow Cooker).
W: crock pot chicken verde courtesy of Skinnytaste
Th: BLT macaroni salad courtesy of Skinnytaste
F: Chicken ceasar salad cups
And for lunch this week, I am making orange and arugula salad and fiesta bean salad for lunch (both also from Skinnytaste).
I am excited for these new recipes! I think they’re going to be a hit!
What do you have going on this Memorial Day weekend?
