Warning: this post is extremely boring. Try not to hate it. Or me.
Super ambiguous sentence comin’ your way. This weekend wasn’t exactly the healthiest weekend, although it wasn’t exactly the unhealthiest either. Told ya.
Friday night we headed over to my boyfriend’s sister’s place to get some time in with his family. I ate a couple pieces of Little Caesar’s Pizza and a few bites of chocolate ice cream. It was a very Paleo-friendly meal. We picked up a few things at the store on the way home and decided to splurge and get some Annie’s Mac & Cheese. It was bunny-shaped 🙂 Everyone knows that bunny-shaped tastes better. Duh. I used coconut milk to mix the cheese in, and added some ground beef, bacon, and red bell pepper. Yummy.
Super healthy Friday night. I also felt bad for not working out, but seeing as it was my first day off in 10 days, I knew I needed to take a rest day.
Saturday morning I was going to make my delicious Paleo coconut flour pancakes. Sadly, I didn’t realize I was out of coconut milk until the morning of, so I altered the recipe a bit and made Greek yogurt coconut pancakes instead 🙂 They were pretty good, but not as good as the real deal, so there’s no use in posting the recipe.
And, in the lovely way that only Mollie can describe this, BAAAAACCCCOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!
After breakfast, we met up with my guy’s family at the mall for a little bit of back to school/ tax-free shopping. I don’t like shopping. I always find a reason NOT to buy anything. I’ll try on a million things (which is probably the most annoying part) and usually walk out of the store with nothing. So, I was kinda proud of myself when I ended up purchasing two pairs of shoes and 3 cami tank tops. I spent $34 total on the shoes and $5.40 on the tanks. I usually shop at good will, so the price point here was right up my alley.
Also, I drive a Honda.
Oh, um, here’s something else I saw while shopping:
Of course I told Meghan immediately. We were both extremely tempted but managed to resist the urge. Regardless, their marketing strategy is on point. Random, enormous candy stand in the dead middle of a crowded mall = genius.
Saturday night, I concocted a basil turkey burger, threw it over some arugula, topped it with a fried over-medium egg, and paired it with some sweet potato fries. Nom nom.
- Basil Turkey Burger – 1/4 lb turkey, 1 tbsp fresh minced basil, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, an itty bitty bit of goat cheese. Form into a patty and pan fry on medium heat in coconut oil for a few minutes on each side until thoroughly cooked.
- Sweet Potato Fries – 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Toss in olive or coconut oil, sea salt, and cinnamon. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes at 425 degrees.
We worked out Saturday night – chest, triceps, and abs. I didn’t take any pictures. You don’t care about my dumb workout pictures anyway. Win win.
Sunday we woke up and had mimosas, then I went to the pool and read for an hour. Then I came home, started feeling a-w-f-u-l, took a three hour nap due to a massive headache, and after feeling nauseous for another few hours, I threw up. Thrilling day, right? I can’t remember the last time I threw up from just being sick rather than being overly drunk or hung over. Apparently it was the mimosas. I’m sure the heat didn’t help, either. That’s never happened before. I hope it never happens again. It sucked.
Our half is this Saturday. I was supposed to run 8 miles on Sunday, but my body preferred to feel like a s**tbag instead, so I didn’t run. Not so sure how I’m going to do with this half. I guess I’m just gonna run uuuuuuber slow and deal. I’ll get through it, but there might be some walking to report in the recap afterward.
This post turned from bunnies to throw up way too quickly. Sorry.
I hope none of this ruins your lunch today.
Do you buy regular-shaped pasta or fun-shaped pasta?
What was the last thing you bought when you went shopping?
Do you get sick when you drink mimosas?
