Weekend Recap: Sushi Boats & Workouts

Oh, Monday. Why you have to come back so soon?? Granted, I had a pretty low-key weekend, but it was better than Monday!

Friday was another half day at work (four more until they’re over until next summer – SADS!), but I started the morning out with a 6 a.m. spin class and it honestly was the worst class I ever taken. Not because of the instructor or anything, but I was so wiped from being sick on and off last week PLUS had barely slept since I worked late on Thursday night, but at least I got up and did something! After a half day at work, I went home and tried to tidy up my place. With that came putting together my August dry erase board calendar (I’m a calendar lady – seriously – I have two google calendars, a desk one, an Erin Condren one and the dry erase one at home) and while, I don’t want to wish away August because it’s the last of my favorite season, I just can’t even handle it right now.


After my afternoon off, I met my friend Mary over at Island Sushi (a new sushi place in De Pere) for all-you-can-eat sushi and it was really good! I liked that the sushi came around on boats. 🙂

After the sushi boat extravaganza, we headed over to SALT to have a drink (or two). I had some sort of grapefruit vodka lemonade thingy that was really good.


Since we were so close to the college (Mary & I went to college together), we decided we’d walk around campus. I, of course, was totally not walking around campus in hopes that I’d run into a Packer player. Nope. Not me. (The Packers stay on campus for their training camp and it’s REALLY DIFFICULT knowing they’re so close to me) After walking around campus (and falling down in my 4-inch wedges and throwing my purse to try to save myself – it happened), we headed home.

Saturday morning started out early for me as I was taking a cycling class at 8 a.m. (which went wayyyyyy better than the class did on Friday morning) and a little bit of an arm workout thrown in after that. I went home, ate some overnight oats (first time ever making those!) and laid around watching YouTube videos. I took a nap from 2-4 p.m. (whoops), and then headed to Target to pick up  a few things and get myself out of the house. Of course, I picked up a food scale because I’d like to start tracking macros but NOOOO. It doesn’t work. Thanks a lot, food scale! I have no pictures from Saturday since all I did was workout and sleep so …. moving on!

Sunday I (woke up late) made a Brownie Batter Bake recipe from Amanda at Running with Spoons which was really good!

After eating, I got ready to go take a Cardio Kickboxing + Glutes class at my gym and HOLY CRAP my legs/butt were in so much pain! Good pain, of course.

Cardio Kickboxing

Literally kicked my ass. I wasn’t feeling so hot afterwards, though. I definitely hadn’t drank enough water or eaten enough, so I walked around TJ Maxx to pick up a few things for Ireland and then went home to take a migraine pill and kick it on the couch for the rest of the night.


And now we’re on to Monday! I have a work party/team building thing this afternoon/evening and then have to go on to my other job. It’s going to be a long day and this is how I currently feel.


How did your weekend go? 
Are you a weekend workout type person? I think it’s my favorite time to workout.

Linking up with Katie!

    I’m definitely a weekend workout person! I love it! Occasionally I’ll have a crazy weekend day and working out doesn’t happen, but I figure 4 days a week is plenty anyway. I have one daily planner this I LIVE by and my month of August looks a lot like yours! It’s going to be a tough month! I looked up that recipe for those brownie oat things and they look SO GOOD! I need to pick up some regular oats cause I only have the packets of oatmeal. Anyway, rest up and get some energy back for the rest of the week! It’s only Monday 🙂

    I’ve never tried overnight oats but I really should make them because I love oatmeal so much and I think it would take some of the chaos out of my mornings. It sounds like you had a relaxing weekend girl, I hope you’re feeling all better (:

      They’re pretty good, especially if you like oatmeal! I’m still getting into oatmeal, so it’s not THE BEST thing I’ve ever eaten, but it’s easy!

    I really struggle with working out on the weekends! I usually take Fridays & Saturdays off from working out. Its just so hard to get motivated to go to the gym when I just want to be lazy on my days off. It’s easier for me to workout during the week though. That brownie oatmeal thing looks amazing. I looked at her blog & saw a cookie dough one too which I would love to try. Hope you’re feeling better! It sucks feeling like crap & having a ton of stuff to do.

      That totally makes sense! I think I like the gym better on the weekends because there are less people there so I can get into the weight room without having to fight the boys for the benches. 🙂

    How’d you like overnight oats? I really enjoy the recipe I use. If your interested let me know! I love your dry erase board calendar. It resembles that of my twin brothers that I saw this past May. Hah! Im not a dry erase board lady, but I do need a journal. Which btw, I’m not sure if you saw but i have a fitness & workout journal giveaway happening on my blog right now. Never know – you could be the lucky winner 🙂

    Hope your feeling 100% back to your normal self.

      I liked them, but I’d love your recipe! I’m using a very basic one, so it’s not super exciting. And I saw the giveaway and favorited it, but thanks for the reminder! Checking out out today 🙂
