Whew! This week has been a long one. I've worked every day since Saturday, and I finally have a day off tomorrow to regroup. After this week things should finally slow down and I'll be back to blogging daily :)
What I've Been Up To:
With Christmas less than a week away (!), I've been using any free time to get last minute shopping done. I have a pretty big family, so that's a lot of stuff to keep track of :)
2. Working out
Even with being busy I've made an effort to get workouts in :) On Monday I did this one from Meg Go Run, and honestly I only made it through one round. 10 minutes was enough to completely kick my butt. Tuesday I brought it and did an almost 2 hour workout at the gym! I did over an hour of weights and then a 2 mile run on the treadmill with speed intervals thrown in. I'm finally able to hold my goal 5k pace for half a mile, so I'm slowly getting there ;)
Last night I finally had a chance to slow down and relax and it was great and 1000% needed.
I hopped in the tub with this adorable wizard bubble bar from Lush while reading Harry Potter, how fitting ;)
4. Grandma time
I think I've spent more time this week with my grandma than I did in the entire summer. Her and my grandpa spend most of the summer at their place at the beach, so during the winter I see them a lot more. We went down south to Richmond to knock out some more shopping yesterday, and then grabbed dinner.
Panera is always a winner ;) I tried the black bean soup, and ohmygoodness. Where has this been all my life? I want it for every meal of every day for the next week (or two).
Actually, that's been about it for my week! Pretty low-key, but I'm sure I'll have way more to blog about next week :)
What are some highlights from your week?
Do you like panera? What's your favorite thing there?
I need more ideas for next time I go ;)
