It’s a stupendous Saturday! Here are a couple of pictures that I forgot to post from one of my girlfriend’s birthday dinner– we saw the rainbow on our drive downtown!
Breakfast in bed [fruit, yogurt, and cereal], a trip to TJ’s, a trip to Costco, a tasty lunch [highlight: an apple crumb VitaTop topped with TJ’s spreadable goat cheese], a productive afternoon reading my student’s records, and a sweatastic workout at the gym… And the best has yet to come, we’re going to the Washington National’s (*Nat’s) baseball game tonight! My Dear and I have gone to a bunch of Nat’s games this season- what’s better than a beautiful summer evening sitting outside at the ballpark, eating a picnic dinner, sipping a few cold beverages, and watching a good game? Not much!
Rewind to yesterday… I woke up feeling fine, but as the morning progressed I felt like a bulldozer plowed right through me. I ended up leaving the last day of training early because I honestly just wasn’t functioning. Thankfully, I was scheduled to be in a classroom with the students that I worked with earlier in the week so I didn’t miss anything. Once I got home, I hopped into bed, read some blogs, ate lunch, got back into bed, and dragged myself to the gym. I normally wouldn’t have made myself go to the gym because of how sluggish I felt, but I had an appointment with a personal trainer that I felt bad canceling. We began the session with a warm up [more like a workout, in my opinion] and transitioned to the weights area. We focused on the FreeMotion machines and body resistance exercises. The workout itself wasn’t that difficult but I was still sore from the kettlebell and bosu ball workout I did Wednesday night with my momma [seriously, those classes are no joke] so my flexibility was at its minimal.
On my way home I swung by the Teet to get a couple of things… It’s the little things in life that make me happy 🙂 Such as snagging awesome deals at the grocery store! As I’ve said before, I love shopping sales, who doesn’t [okay, maybe not everyone loves the grocery store as much as me, but a sale is a sale]!
Why only buy one when you can have… Three!
Buy one, get one free… Sure, how about two, three, or four, why not?!
Frozen breakfast treats [for my brother], check!
I never had one of these when I was younger, my momma used tinfoil and plastic bags… Modern “technology” at its finest, ha!
I start teaching in three weeks, I gotta connect with my students somehow… What child doesn’t like Goldfish?! P.S. The Pop-Tarts case was textured with the little sprinkle toppings like the actual treat!
All together now…
I saved a whopping $25 and didn’t even use any coupons [I forgot them at home, oops]!
P.S. I hope you all enjoyed the guest post yesterday by one of my girlfriends! I knew that she had gotten injured during her race, but I didn’t know it was that severe… Such an inspirational story!
