Hope you all had an awesome weekend! I figured I’d do a little recap of my weekend in pictures for ya…
Friday after work, Mike and I headed over to Breakheart Reservation for a 3 mile hilly, power-walk through the woods. The weather has been perfect – mid-70’s, low-humidity & sunny – for getting outdoors and exercising.
After the walk, Mike prepared one of his amazingly good pizza’s! It included flat-bread crust, mushrooms, orange peppers, artichokes, tomato sauce and crumbled goat cheese. (We also had grilled eggplant on the side but I forgot to snap a picture). Home-made pizza is such a better alternative than greasy, calorie-ridden take-out pizza!
Saturday started like usual….
with my cat’s face right on top of me. Seriously, he needs to let me sleep in for once.
Breakfast was a bowl of vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries, Fiber One cereal + a scoop of peanut butter and Dunkin’s coffee w/ almond milk (I usually have iced-coffee but forgot to make it the night before, boo… )
After breakfast we (Mike, the baby bump, and I) headed out for an early 4-mile power-walk around the lake…
and ended our walk at our towns Farmer’s Market.
I really wish Farmers Markets lasted longer than just the few summer months! It’s so nice being able to buy fresh foods + drinks…
including this refreshing iced-green tea. So good!
The goodies that I picked up… I’ll have to carry more cash with me next time I go.
I ran a bunch of errands during the afternoon, got a mani/pedi, cleaned up the house and then prepared a really, really tasty smoothie to hold me over ’til dinner.
Strawberry, Banana Protein Smoothie:
1 cup coconut water, 1 cup frozen strawberry/banana mix, 1 cup fresh strawberries, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder + 1 scoop almond butter. Blend & enjoy!
Started off as a lazy morning but we eventually made our way to Cape Cod and then over to Mayflower Beach.
I was able to soak in the afternoon-sun,
hang with my cute, little nephew,
and spend some time reading Self magazine. Doesn’t this Blueberry Waldorf salad sound/look delicious?
Once the tide was low enough, I went out for a 45 minute walk along the shore…
Getting my 10,000 steps a day is so much more enjoyable on the beach than walking around my neighborhood. Love, love, love this beach!
I spent the evening chillin’ at my mom’s house with my brother, SIL & two nephews. It was a perfect weekend of exercising, getting stuff done and relaxing…. which is just what this 35-week prego lady needed. :)
