The last three days have been great. Summer school is over! I’m a senior! (again!) We went to Ohio! Yep, I wasn’t blogging because the summer of weekend fun has officially begun. Let’s back up to Friday morning first.
I stayed up late on Thursday (Adam was studying and I was doing nothing) so waking up was rough. Somehow I did manage to get out of bed and make it to the gym. And then I did strength training! I walked on the treadmill for 7 minutes to warm up and then spent 30 minutes rotating though a cycle of strength machines plus stretch moves on the mat.
Since I actually did weights work it seemed like the perfect time for the Honey Core Power protein drink I bought on sale.
It was fine, not great, but 26 grams of protein in a few minutes is nothing to sneeze at.
To celebrate our last day, our teacher brought in garden chili.
I had a bowl topped with cheddar,
and another glass of lemon sweet tea.
When the day was over a few friends and I celebrated on our own. First we grabbed the dog,
and then we walked to Dolci,
for bourbon cinnamon gelato.
Eeeeee, this tasted so good! The cinnamon was pretty subdued and it had the best texture, almost airy.
Then Adam and I were in the car for weekend #1 of summer fun.
I packed us leftovers for dinner.
Buffalo Chicken Baked Pasta.
We both agreed that this dish is one of best things I make.
Saturday morning I managed to sleep until 11:30 …on the living room floor …while people screamed at the top of their lungs playing Battleship! Tired much?
For lunch I did my best to pick and choose a meal from McDonald’s.
Two packs of apple slices,
and a fruit and yogurt parfait.
Plus a (mini) S’more Monster Cookie for dessert.
I thing I like these cookies even better when they are regular sized.
We spent the afternoon at our niece’s dance recital. There were kids of all ages, including a class of three-year olds twirling around in giant tutus. And now my ovaries hurt!
Dinner was re-dic-u-lous.
Salad with honey mustard dressing.
French fries. With butter for the …
All you could eat. Apparently I could eat five clusters. And then I was very, very full.
Though not too full for candy at the movies a few hours later.
We saw Prometheus and I do not recommend it. The “Alien” nerds on all of the forums were right, the characters are dumb and I didn’t care what happened to them.
The parents made us all breakfast this morning before we had to hit the road. I had a glass of skim milk,
and a pancake (with butter and syrup) and fresh fruit.
The opposite of fresh, Adam and I snacked on this cookies and cream Chex Mix on the road.
I ate ~2 serving’s worth.
We had to stop at the mall on the way home to get the husband new sandals so we got froyo too.
I got a tiny bit of tart yogurt with tons of fruit and popping boba.
We we’ve been home about an hour and I’ve already eaten two of the Hawaiian rolls that Adam brought home.
Clearly it’s time to rustle up dinner! See ya tomorrow.
