TGIF! Yesterday kicked my butt. Work was non-stop! Then I had a fabulous dinner out followed by falling asleep on the couch at about 7:45...oops. It was a major struggle to wake up, wash up, and get this post together before actually going to bed for the night - I just did not want to wake up!
First up for my favorites this week is my Grandpa's birthday. My Grandpa passed away a few years ago. I think of him often, especially on his big day. He was such a wonderful man and I am so glad that I was able to have the time I did with him. Love and miss you, Grandpa!
Carpaccio. As I mentioned previously, I spent dinner out last night. For our appetizer we went with carpaccio. It was DELICIOUS! I had never had it before, but oh my gosh was it good. The meat just melted in your mouth. If you don't mind very rare meat, definitely try it out next time you see it on a menu. So good!
Stationary bike. In my confession yesterday, I talked about my "old lady" body. With my knee and hip giving me fits, I have been trying to do lower impact cardio at the gym. To switch things up, I tried out the stationary bike that always has arm handles that go back and forth. I tried this one before, but found the seat to be so uncomfortable. I couldn't figure out how to adjust it to work for me! However, during one of my gym trips this week, I figured out how to move the seat just right. I think I found a new favorite machine! I love how it works both my arms and my legs. While it doesn't feel quite as good as running does, it is a good alternative when I want to switch things up.
Chocolate chip cookies. Yesterday at my work meeting, lunch was catered. We just had boxed lunches - sandwich, chips, apple and a cookie. These cookies were SO GOOD! They were regular chocolate chip cookies, with a chocolate cookie center - almost like the cookie part from an Oreo baked inside a chocolate chip cookie. It was such a fun surprise after a full morning of intense meetings.
This song. It has been stuck in my head since yesterday. I don't know hardly any words except "work, work, work, work, work...". It gets me pumped up for the day when I hear it on the way into work!
Hope you all have a great weekend - happy, happy Easter!
Linking up with Andrea, April and Amanda.
