I just realized I never did a Friday List of Awesome last week… so I’m going to do the much harder “Monday List of Awesome” instead. I’ve been pretty stressed with my job, weight loss, etc etc so this list is needed, provided I can think of a few things to put on here.
I finally got to have a “lazy” day with Craig yesterday. Lazy is in quotations because the first things we did yesterday was workout and go for a 50 minute bike ride. It felt really good to get out there though and finally use my new bike!
Shark Week started last night, which means we’ll be watching every night this week and one of these days I’m going to make shark cookies!
I made fantastic jalapeño poppers on Friday… this recipe + wrapped in bacon before I breaded them.
I’m getting my nails and hair done on Thursday. I need it.
My BFF Stephanie just got engaged!! Obviously I’m jealous… but also incredibly happy for her :)
My mom made possibly one of the best recipes yet on Friday- Roasted Salmon Sandwiches. The chipotle mayo was to die for, seriously.
Craig bought me beautiful flowers after I had a very terrible day at work on Wednesday <3
I painted this Bears mug for Craig last week- I have the Bulls mug done, too so now I just need to paint a Blackhawks, Cubs, and Sox one!
I know I need to do a Friday list of awesome even though I’m not feeling the awesomeness at the moment. Craig has been in Colorado all week for a conference and I’m missing him like crazy. Not to mention that he’s been very hard to reach… but he’s coming home tomorrow night so I only have to wait 27 more hours!
I’ve worked out every day this week so far and I have plans to workout still today, tomorrow, and Sunday. Monday- 30 min. on the AMT, 1 hour cardio kickboxing class Tuesday- 5 min. on the elliptical, 1 hour strictly strength class Wednesday- 30 min. spin class Thursday- 30 min. interval workout on the AMT Friday (today after work)- 30 min. on the bike, 1 hour strictly strength class Saturday- 1 hour cardio kickboxing class Sunday- 9 holes of golf with my dad
And I lost 3 lbs. this week! Hopefully I can keep it off this weekend. I think I’ll be ok.
I had lunch at my mom’s today and she made a (way too) delicious spinach artichoke sandwich + cantaloupe for lunch. YUM… sourdough bread is my weakness.
My friend Heather is coming over after my workout tonight for some girl time/wine drinking. I’ll also be painting a couple beer mugs for my friend’s wedding- they’re both HUGE Bulls fans, so I’ll be painting the logo onto the mugs. I’ll post a pic when I’m done! Blues Bros. mug for my dad and TMNT shot glass for Craig were the last couple things I painted.
I have a pool time appointment with the girl who I’m painting the mugs for on Saturday after cardio kickboxing. Water + sun + tan = perfect summer afternoon. I’m finally tan enough to wear white again, in case you didn’t see my Instagram post.
I know I already mentioned this, but… Craig comes home tomorrow night!!! It’s been an incredibly hard week without him. I’ll be cooking dinner to be ready when he gets home, obviously.
Kelsey and I are going to the One Direction concert on Sunday!! I’m going to pretend I’m 15 years old and go nuts. I bought these tickets for her almost 2 years ago, so I’m excited the concert is finally here! Next week is Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z on her 21st birthday :D
