This weekend was pretty fun. I started Friday night with 1-legged Eva at CrossFit. I only got 3 rounds, modified, in 28:55.
- 800m row (1-leg)
- 30 1-leg deadlift (30#)
- 3 rope pull ups
The row kills me. I’ve been doing so much rowing. I hated it before I broke my leg, and I don’t care much for it now. If I’m ever given the opportunity to run instead of row, I usually always run. I thought maybe a broken leg would force me to appreciate rowing, and I guess I don’t hate it as much. But I really can’t wait to run.
Saturday we got a bunch of doughnuts from Dunkin Donuts and had eggs and doughnuts for breakfast. We’re well-balanced over here. After that, we made the trip to Alpharetta to see Monsters University (since the closest theater didn’t have it!). It was a really good movie. Sean and I both really enjoyed it. It was funny and had so many plays back into the original Monsters, Inc. movie. I recommend it to kids AND adults.
On our way back home from the movie, we stopped at Trader Joe’s and Publix to get groceries. Grocery shopping while hungry is always a bad idea, and we may have gotten chips and cookies and other junk foods. Maybe. When we got home, we had a quick snack of celery and carrots, and I took a nap while Sean went running.
For dinner, we used a gift card a friend gave us to our favorite Thai place. The weather was nice, and we sat outside on their patio next to the fountain and chatted. We got our usual: fried spring rolls as an appetizer (they spice these so well at our Thai joint–and they’re so tasty), garlic chicken & vegetables for Sean, and mixed vegetables with tofu for me. I’ve said it a million times, I’m sure, but Thai places really know how to do tofu right. Then we came home for ice cream. Hooray for weekends!
Sunday started out pretty lazily. We somehow managed to sleep in till 7am despite Pudge’s scratching and had another breakfast of eggs and leftover doughnuts. After heading back to bed to be a little lazy, we headed to to see Sean’s movie of choice this weekend: World War Z.
I heard some people say it was scary, so I was a little nervous. However, it wasn’t scary as much as drama/action. Sure, there were a few parts that made me jump, but it was good. I haven’t read the book, but I’ve read a few synopses of it, and the movie plays along with how the book ends. I feel like some people will be disappointed with the movie, though, since it offers little resolution. I don’t want to give TOO much away, though.
After we made it back from the movie theater, we had leftover Thai food for lunch an took a little nap. Yes, this has been the weekend of the nap. I’m addicted. I have a problem. We spent the rest of Sunday being lazy, roasting vegetables for dinner and to have later in the week.
I’m debating heading out to Wal-Mart or Target to invest in a coffee maker since I’ve been spending WAY too much money on iced coffees at Starbucks in the mornings before work. Any suggestions? Sean refuses to allow a Keurig in the house since the coffee is actually steamed in little plastic cups–which are both wasteful (pretty sure they’re not recyclable) and potentially harmful since I’d be drinking out of heated plastic. The Keurig seems like a good one-cup option, but I like my coffee cold, anyway, so I could always make a giant pot on Sunday night and drink cold coffee throughout the week. We’ll see. I’ll let you know what happens.
And finally… It’s seemed like it’s been forever, but I’m supposed to get my cast off this Wednesday. I’m really looking forward to walking on 2 legs and shaving. I got a glance at the underside of my foot that’s in the cast, and it looks like I’m made of wood. Yikes. I took a picture, but I’ll spare you.
I hope your weekends were wonderful. Here’s to a productive (and quick) last week of June!
