And it felt so good! 🙂 Since I worked out nice and early on Friday morning at my conference, I thought it was necessary to treat myself that evening with some decadent fro yo!
That’s right Donna and Tom, that’s right.
How could I not with these flavors available? All bizarre and random, but all SO good.
Yes, well earned.
Saturday morning, I ran a 5K with my man and his friends. I was hoping to PR with this race but coming out of the gate way too quickly ended that goal. Plus, it was hillier than I could have imagined! I can’t catch a break with these 5K courses lately and the darn hills they have! Ugh, can’t I just run a flat 5K, PR, and be on my merry way? No, of course. not. T’was fun, nonetheless, and the race sign up guaranteed a beer as soon as we crossed the finish line. That was what sold us on the event.
We all sweat like crazy.
Cheers to a totally hard earned beer and a great way to kick off the weekend.
Afterward, my boyfriend and I went to his family’s house to celebrate Father’s Day. There was so much good food and I never pass on that kind of occasion. Plus, I can’t remember the last time I’ve had corn on the cob, it totally takes me back to childhood summer days. It was SO good and I need to not be so lazy and make it for myself.
Salmon, veggies and a salad were also devoured. 🙂
Yesterday, I awoke with an urge to run. I felt so great during the 5K and I wanted to continue that feeling. My legs were incredibly tight, however, from the run and it wasn’t one of my best runs. In fact, around the third mile, two dogs ran up and started chasing The Senator and me! It scared me, and it actually stopped traffic because the two dogs ran across a pretty busy street to chase us. They were sweet and harmless, but when I have loud music pumping me up to power me through a final mile, two dogs jumping around behind me are sure to startle me. If my heart rate hadn’t been up before, that did the trick!
It was incredibly hot and I thought I was going to pass out when I got home. That’s likely not a good sign, right? An ice pack was immediately applied to my neck.
Then we got to celebrate at my parent’s house yesterday! And I thought that my dog was spoiled until I saw this sight.
My parent’s dog eats at the dinner table too, y’all. Mom – I know you absolutely love this! 🙂 And there was no skimping in the dessert world, either. My mama is an amazing baker and she makes these with three ingredients: eggs, sugar and peanut butter. Plus, a mini Reeses Cup on top, naturally.
I did say at the beginning that I was going to treat myself, right?
Carrot cake a la Costco.
Ice cream cake a la Baskin n Robbins.
And, finally, white chocolate, raspberry and chocolate cake a la Costco.
If you didn’t want dessert before you started reading, I know you do now. My sincerest apologies. I can’t keep healthy all the time, right?
Did you race this weekend? How’d it go?
What’s your favorite dessert?
What’s one food item that takes you back to your childhood? Give me popsicles on a porch and I’m six years old all over again.
