I’ve got a lot to share from this weekend, so fasten your seatbelts!
Friday night we went to the monthly social fitness class + happy hour at ACAC. I’m already looking forward to the next one! The evening starts with a themed workout and ends with an hour of drinks and snacks on the roof. Tonight’s class was Field Day themed!
We started with a 30 minute athletic conditioning class led by Chris. Jump, Matt, jump! HI GABY!
Then we competed in potato sack relays, scooter races, and sprint relays.
Followed by a classic water balloon toss
And lastly, a parachute experience!! I actually got to lead this with the mic because I have a good memory of 3rd grade and could remember all the fun things to do with a parachute.
Then we hit the rooftop for dinner – catered by Great Harvest!
We had assorted sandwiches, rolls with dips and spreads and cookies. And WINE of course!
Saturday morning my friend Alice convinced me that 12 hours was enough recovery time between workouts. So I glugged some coffee and ate a slice of Raspberry Swirl to fuel up before heading to 9am athletic conditioning.
And we skipped (not ran) back to the gym for a hard-core class!! More Chris. More good music. More fun. More sore legs.
Matt and I showered there before we went to the city market for groceries, and Mazen finally got up the courage to touch a fire truck.
Lunch back at home was a salad with leftover Cook Smarts olive chicken, heirloom tomato and a mini quesadilla made with a local corn tortilla and a slice of cheddar
I spent the afternoon developing a yummy coconut butter ball snack recipe with homemade Cheerios for a future post
And getting a pedi. Gratuitous toe shot!
I had a capp while I was out picking up cupcakes for our Sat night party!
We hosted a bunch of our employees over for an appreciation soirée later that evening. Unfortunately it rained. Fortunately it stopped raining long enough for M to learn how to play corn hole!
We munched on chips and dips
And grilled big juicy burgers.
Matt also made a salad that was a nice change from your typical side of grilled veggies. He tossed grilled squash, eggplant and corn in a sesame dressing. Loved it!
I did lots of chip eating, so I had half a burger and some sides
Also because I was saving room for THESE! Sweet Haus to the rescue.
Sunday we somehow ended up staying in bed until after 9! M woke up a little later and then brought some toys in with us while we woke up slowly. So nice!
For breakfast I made a smoothie from Tina’s new book, The Part Time Vegetarian (PTV) Smoothies and Juices. Lots of raspberries!! Served with apple toast and coffee.
We went on a family run/walk to the park mid-morning. I was planning to take the day off but we ended up walking 2 and running 2 miles.
Leftovers for lunch! Cook Smarts tuna orzo with cheese on top.
I went to visit my friend Meg in the hospital – she had baby Rose yesterday!! She was sooo cute!!
And I finalized my Coconut Cheerios Balls!
We wrapped up the weekend by cooking two leftover burgers and making a salad with avocado, tomato and leftover grilled veggies. I went bun-less because of all the taste-testing I’d already done!
