Weekend Update: 7/27/14

oh Monday. . . after a vacation. . . it’s the worst.

but I am making the best of it.

the start of a new week. back to normal life. back to teaching bodypump tonight. back to sleeping in my own bed. back to living the advocare lifestyle and not feeling the sugar hangover the next morning. back to work and doing the thing that I love – being a doctor.

what are you back to this week??

anyway. . . here’s a look at my weekend – the last part of our lake vacation.

My friends took off for Colorado (home) on Friday morning.


We got up early to fit in a 4 mile run in the cornfields of WI. Man, running without them next week will be a major bummer!


The ultimate balance = spark + special K bars. Everything in moderation, right?


Typical Friday night in Wisconsin – {kiddie} cocktails + cheese curds + fish.


Saturday morning we got packed up and made the trek back to Mankato.

5 miles after sitting in the car = glorious. Plus had to check out Minnesota State University for the Minnesota Vikings Training Camp. {Go Pack Go!}


Luke and I did 6 miles together on Sunday morning.


And “helped” Dad outside. . .


My latest Jamberry manicure during nap time.


And then dinner at Baker’s Square with Scott’s parents. . .


And the most important part of eating at Baker’s Square –> pie selection.


I came home with this one –> peanut butter cup Smile 


So, what were you up to this weekend?

Linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!

And don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a box of balance bars and a giftcard to Walmart –> ends TONIGHT!!

    Looks like an awesome vacation- so great you can get some fitness in with your friends too! Love all the miles you’re logging, way to go!

  2. Fried cheese curds. I want them and it’s pretty rare to find them in Philly. We can get poutine at some places but it’s not very common.

  4. I think you have the WI Friday night down. I think many of my childhood Friday nights were spent in a very similar way 🙂

    I hope this week back to normal goes well! It’s always hard to get focused again after vacation.

  5. I love that were both GB fans. I was kind of scared for a second when you mentioned Vikings training camp. Haha! If only we lived closer, we could go to a game or two together 🙁
