Our weekend started off slow, with a very quiet night in on Friday night...I made a meal from my meal plan, even though we usually go out to eat on Friday nights. I just decided that since I had all of the ingredients, why not whip it up! So, I made the ginger turkey stir fry recipe and oh my heavens! It was delicious!! Seriously, so yummy! If you like a lighter Chinese meal, this one's for you! You can find that recipe here.
Then Saturday morning I was craving a nice long run, so I laced up and headed out, aiming for 8-10 miles. It was a cool morning, with thunderstorms lingering in the west and predicted for the entire day, so I wanted to bust it out before I got rained on. Well, I was able to get 8 miles in at a little over an hour, before the rain started. Not too shabby for not having run in over a couple months!
Then it was home to get ready to head back to our old stomping grounds for a good friend's wedding. I kicked things up a notch with my makeup and hair, knowing I'd be seeing quite a few of our old high school friends...most of whom haven't seen me since I decided to bust my butt and get in shape, so I had something to prove to them!
|This was me the last time most of them had seen me...|
|This was me on Saturday night...|
The rest of the afternoon was spent with a three hour family nap, followed by a movie and some Mexican take-out that we had a buy one get one free coupon for...who doesn't love free food?!
And, in typical Sunday Schaben family fashion, we were all in bed by 8:00 last night.
I've said it before but I'll say it again:
1.) I'm not 21 anymore
2.) I love the weekends, but...
3.) I love Mondays more!!
Until next time...
