Wonderful Relaxing Weekend, 10K Training

Thanks you guys! I really appreciate your support with this car stress! No news yet, but i'll keep ya posted! So how is your labor day going??! My weekend was great - starting with Friday, a great day! I just worked, walked 4 miles during lunch, worked a bit more and then it was off to Lexus to drop off the car/tell them to please figure out the noise and call me, and then off to Birmingham, Ala., to see Austin’s brother, Elliot, play high senior year high school football game! We met Austin’s parents and grandfather at the house, picked up the Prices – his mom’s best friend Leigh and her husband Andy and son Brooks and we were off! We had a great time at the game – so fun to catch up with them and to see their friends – the Sullivan’s, Hudson’s and more! E won the game – WOO – so then it was picture time, off to a post-party at the Hudson’s, and then late night hanging out in Austin’s parents wine cellar. I mean late! We had so much fun and got to taste some awesome wines – thanks, Paul & Michelle! I ended up at 2,145 calories, 210 carbs, 70 fat grams and 80 protein grams. Here’s what I ate. My camera was dead - no pics from this night - sad!

Saturday I woke up motivated to get in that third run of the week – woo! I went to the gym at their country club (where we got married!) and walked ¼ mile, ran 3 miles straight at 6.3 mph, then walked another ½ mile to take me to 3.5 miles – woo! After some stretches we were off to Whole Foods to grab some lake food, and then off to the Seamen’s (Ruje & Mark) lake house! We hung out then got on the clothes, packed the cooler and went for a boat ride! Reuben did SO good in his little life jacket! He swam around and was the cutest! We jammed, did the rope swing a few too many times, had some drinkies and had a blast! Then it was back to the lake house for college football! WAR EAGLE! Auburn won – YAY- and then we watched a few more games, ate pizza and salad, played trivial pursuit (which lasted forever… I finally won at 2:30 a.m.) and then it was lights out! I ended up at 2,351 calories, 229 carbs, 80 fat grams and 72 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

Ruje on the boat! Loves it!
Austin and Reuben go for a swim!
Loved having Reuben out on the water!
Beautiful weather all weekend long!

Sunday I didn’t sleep well. Reuben wanted to be up and and down and up and down, and since we weren’t at home there was no bench for him to do this for him. BLAH. When I got up I laid in bed and finished reading The Help. Book review to come! Then I headed down, split a leftover piece of pizza with Austin and found everyone was in the mood for a lazy day – yay! We all rested, watched football and read. I started a new book of Ruje’s, Elizabeth Brundage’s The Doctor’s Wife. SO good. We laid around until about 4, then went fishing, played cornhole, cooked dinner and had another trivial pursuit evening – SO fun! I love a chill day and when everyone’s on the same page. I ended up at 1,931 calories, 161 carbs, 70 fat grams and 90 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

It's a toss up between the picnic and eating lunch with mom and dad.

Reuben's little life vest is so cute!

Melinda said...

omigosh looks like so much fun!! I like fishing but have only caught about 2 fish in my ENTIRE life! Did you actually bait your hook- I will only use fake worms or have one of the guys do it for me lol

What an awesome weekend! I did the same thing in Alabama this weekend :)

Gabriela said...

Such a fun weekend!! I'm a bit jealous of everyone who got to enjoy the great outdoors this weekend, I must say. Best thing I did was probably a dinner at my favorite restaurant!

Lee said...

Loks like fun. Can you believe that I've never been on a boat like that before? I've just been on bigger boats - like catamarans and ferries.

The best part of my weekend was that Jason had two days off which is very unusual.

Awesome pictures! Kissing a catfish before eating it..hmmmm

fittingbackin said...

Thanks you guys - sounds like some yummy eats!

Melinda - only 2 fish in your entire life?! Wow!

Erica - thanks - we think he's a doll baby!

Lee - that is CRAZY! haha so funny!

Paul - no way - catch and release! All fishies photographed were returned to the lake following photographic evidence!

Oh it looks like you had a great weekend, I love the boat pictures! I guess you saw that it was my sister's birthday so that was fun and then on Labor Day I got together with friends for a cookout and swimming in their pool, it was sooo nice.
