Weekend FUN

I know, I know I was a terrible blogger last week, I’m SORRY (You like how I pretend to have lots of readers who care when I do not blog?).  I swear every day of last week 5pm would roll around and I was like WHAT?! AHHH?  I need to be better about prioritizing my tasks, at AU especially.  I seem to constantly be pulled into different directions all day long and my to do list just keeps getting longer and longer.  Also, good news and bad news.  Bad news is I had to give up some clients that I really love in the last few weeks.  Good news is this will be better for my sanity and productivity in general, I just could not keep that pace up.  But man did I try.  I want to be good at what I do, not just get by.  Which sometimes means, I need to do less, need more downtime to focus on myself, regroup etc.

Anyway, GUESS WHAT?  I had NO class this weekend because technically it is “spring break”, I was so excited to have free time I didn’t know what to do with myself.  I also think I annoyed the crap out of Shain because he is not used to me hanging around the house as much as I did, actually I KNOW I annoyed him.  Probably because I am a woman and I love to talk a lot and have “deep conversations” and he is a man and does not.  Makes sense. Friday night we stayed in and I made Paleo Banana Pumpkin Pancakes for dinner that were sooo yummmmy.  Well, Shain will tell you they were ‘okay’, yet he ate them all.

Saturday morning I slept in until 7AM! WOO! Then I met my good friend Nicole at the Waterfall Glen trail for a run.  The trail was not plowed and covered in snow, which means we were just one step away from breaking our ankles the whole time.  Thankfully, we lived and even had coffee after.  That night Shain and I went out with a group of friends to Chicago to see Second City and go to dinner.  We ate at this awesome restaurant called The Publican which made it SUPER easy to follow my paleo challenge because everything on the menu was fresh seafood, meat etc. with veggies and no additives.  I cannot believe I didn’t take any pictures of our food like I usually do, I think because I was too busy shoving everything into my face.

Sunday I had my usual awesome clients and then did my cooking.  Want to know what I made?  You don’t? Too bad, I am going to tell you:

Oh and I should ALSO mention that on SundayI had to pass up my all time FAVORITE meal that Shain’s parents make- Chicken Enchiladas and Sopa. UGH.  Stupid Paleo Challenge.  If I don’t have a six pack in 30 days I am going to be PISSED.

Not Paleo but so good. Sigh.

This was not a very insightful/inspirational post, I apologize.  There will be more of those coming this week PROMISE! 🙂  Stay blessed in the mess!
