The Weekend and Meal Plan

Leave a comment

Helloooooo there!  Happy Sunday Funday night!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  Mine was amazing so I wanted to chronicle it for ya’ll (my cousin was in from Georgia so she has me southern slanging hehe).

Friday- Zach and I were at the beach with our VERY good friends who have a baby Z’s age (Baby Leah who Zach calls Baby-eeeya) and it was a BLAST!

We ate good food, went shopping (woot wooooot Carter’s and Gap outlets!), hung out, chatted, played with babies, and spent a lot of great time together at the beach.

It was seriously SUCH a good time and we are so fortunate to have such amazing friends!  Thank you!

Saturday- I did my long run (and then rewarded myself with a blowout) with the help of the husb who watched Zach when he woke up from his nap.

So cute!  Then, Saturday afternoon we had our cousin over who lives in Georgia.  I WISH she lived closer and I cannot believe that it has taken her this long to meet Zach!! 😉

I’ve been teasing her about it all weekend. Anyway, she loved him and let me tell you, the feeling was mutual!  Her name is Saba and Z renamed her “Aba.”  He literally has run around for the past two days yelling “Aba! Aba!”  I mean, he even shared his beloved plum (“pum”) with her!

Fun times!

Sunday- We got to see “Aba” again at another family member’s house:  Ian’s aunt and uncle.  They live in a beautiful rural suburb of Philadelphia and Zach REALLY enjoyed himself running around their yard and pond!  We even saw some froggies (“green frog, green frog, what do YOU see?!”  come on moms, join in!).  We were also served a magnificent brunch.  Z was really into ringing the wind chime as well.

PS: Can I just mention how cute I think it is that Z reads in the car and sleeps with a book?! YUP!  He SLEEPS WITH A BOOK!!!!

LOVE this kid.

Anyway, that was our amazing weekend!  (I will admit, a little mama shopping trip to Marshalls on the way to the ‘burbs made possible by the husband-thank you SO much 🙂 added to the fun of the weekend; I will share my finds in a later post).  OK, so moving on to the meal plan:

Monday- Shrimp Caesar salads, homemade biscuits

Tuesday- Beef stroganoff (crock style)

Wednesday- Fish tacos (never tried before; will share recipe and let you know how they are)

Thursday- out to dinner

Friday- homemade pizza!  Trying a new recipe

Workout plan (this is my last full mileage week before I cut back t0 75% next week and then 50% the week before the half!!!! So I am aiming for about 30-35 miles).  Keep in mind, due to naps, etc, workouts might be flip-flopped

Monday- 7 speed training

Tuesday- 6 mile tempo

Wednesday- Cross Train

Thursday- 7 miles hill train

Friday- OFF

Saturday- Long run =11

Sunday- 3 miles recovery

OK, anyway, tell me:  How was your weekend?!?!?!
