Weekend Recap

This weekend was so nice and much needed. Forrest and I seem to have something going on every weekend which means I have to get things done during the week when I have school commitments. I do NOT like to get behind (on reading, cleaning, laundry, groceries, etc). I love to be organized and stay on top of things but man is it hard! I have class Mon & Tues from 8am-4pm and clinical 6:30am- 3pm Wed through Fri, then I come home to change and go to gym from 4:30/5 to 6/6:30pm, then head back home and make dinner, eat, clean kitchen, then read or do class assignments, then off to bed hopefully by 10-11pm. It just seems like there is never enough time to run errands, clean, or even just relax!

So this weekend, we stayed in town. Friday night we went out for dinner to Roadhouse and I treated myself to a margarita and filet. The weather was cold and rainy so it was nice to come home and get comfortable in the house. We ended up going to bed at 8:30 that night haha!! Saturday we woke up, ate breakfast, Forrest went to Bellville to meet his uncle, and I did some cleaning, laundry, and GOOD grocery shopping (new recipes, new snacks with pretty labels since I am a sucker). It was so nice to just go up and down each isle and not be in a hurry. Then Forrest came home, went swimming, and then we went to the gym and I again, was not in a hurry- ran my two miles. Forrest ran 6 miles which makes a total of 26 miles that he has ran this week. For dinner, I made a new recipe from Rachel Ray for turkey chili- kinda spicy with a kick to it- we liked it!

Then today, we went out to eat for breakfast. There is a new IHOP in town so we thought we would try it out (since it will not stay new and clean for long if you know what I mean). And, just FYI: there is a menu on the very back that has meals for under 600 cal that are just as good and without the guilt. Afterwards, we went to Barns & Noble for a couple of hours- Forrest read Triathlon books and I read nursing and healthy eating books. Then we went up to the mall to get Forrest a couple of new pairs of jeans and use his Sears gift card. We came home, I made some paninis and fruit salad for lunch and we watched some tv shows that we had recorded from the previous week. Then Forrest took Lil Girl to the park while I started my reading for tomorrow.

Now, we are home, I took a quick study break to blog, and Forrest is reading the book he got to day. It feels so good to be prepared for the week ahead! Happy Sunday everyone and have a great week!

O and one more thing. I found a good recipe for a breakfast smoothie. It does have quite a bit of ingredients but it is so good and you could probably skip a few. Here it is: (it makes two large servings)

1 banana
1/2 apple
1 kiwi
1/2 cup frozen berries
1 cup OJ
1/2 cup soy milk
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (I used vanilla)
3 tbs peanut butter
2 tbs flaxseed oil
1/2 cup tofu (I skipped this)
2 tbs aloe vera juice

I also added a little bit of ice to make it a little more icy.
