How is it already Monday morning? It felt like this weekend flew by. It was a good mix of work and play though, so I can’t complain. Read on to find out about my weekend adventures.
After work on Friday I had an optometrist appointment followed by running some errands. I ended up stopping for frozen yogurt before heading home. I think people are either all about the frozen yogurt or love the toppings. I’m definitely a toppings person. I went with two kinds of frozen yogurt (chocolate and cookie dough) followed by pineapple, cookie dough, butterscotch chips, brownie, and Oreo toppings. Yum!
One of my errands earlier in the day involved getting groceries. I had some ingredients for these no bake peanut butter bars from Julie at PB Fingers on my list, so I decided to make them once I got home. I switched up the recipe a bit by adding pieces of almonds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds, and it turned out pretty good. I’m planning on making them again and adding rice krispie cereal. If you’re looking for a recipe for an easy to make snack, I’d definitely recommend these.
Saturday started off with some studying. I take my NASM exam in just under 2 weeks so I’ve been trying to get in as much studying as I can. Realistically I already knew most of the content of the textbook from school, but it’s those little details that I’m working on memorizing. I’ve heard that the exam is very applied, so I’m working through as many questions and study guides as I can find online to prepare.
My boyfriend and I decided to get together for a late lunch. We weren’t sure what we wanted, so we went for a walk and found ourselves at The Beltliner. Neither of us had eaten there before, so we thought we’d give it a try. I ordered the buttermilk waffle with fruit and he got the Beltliner’s Poutine Week offering that involved brisket and a fried egg on top of the poutine. Both of our meals were really good, so I’m looking forward to going back again. The rest of Saturday was spent on the couch watching movies together.
A friend of mine who’s a yoga teacher lent me this book to read. While it took a few chapters to get into, I’m really enjoying it. I spent some time on Sunday reading it. Some of the yoga philosophy can be kind of confusing, but this book manages to make it easy to understand. If you’re interested in learning more about the philosophy of yoga, I’d recommend it. I’ll be sure to share my thoughts on it once I’m done reading it.
I also spent a good chunk of Sunday working on my very last assignment of the semester. You’d think that I’d want to get it done as soon as possible, but I’m procrastinating. It’s not all that tough to do, it just requires a lot of work.
Sunday night I decided to make sausage, peppers, and onion for dinner and lunches this week. I found some mild Italian sausage on sale at the grocery store on Friday, so that’s what I based the meal around. I love making this because it’s so easy to do. After chopping the veggies and sausage up, I just put it in a parchment lined pan and season. Then I pop it in the oven for 45 minutes, stirring it halfway through the cooking time.
Now that you know about the highlights of my weekend, share something fun that you did in the comments.
