A “Spring” Weekend

My title is all lies. I get that spring technically started on Sunday but … it’s in the 30s and I had to pull my winter coat back out, so I DON’T BELIEVE YOU. My weekend wasn’t too exciting, but I’ll tell you about it anyway!

Friday after work I headed out to run a few errands and then back home. Friday was supposed to be “one treat meal” and it kind of turned into “one binge night” so … not my proudest moment, but it’s over now. My sister and I ordered some take-away food (she got a fish fry, I got sushi – both of ours wasn’t very good) and some candy. We stayed in for the night and watched a few random movies including “Now You See Me” (I think that’s what it was called) and HOLY CRAP I know I’m behind on the game for that one, but it was SO good. I was not expecting the ending and I’m usually pretty good at figuring the ending out before the movie is done (one of my many unnecessary talents). We also watched Princess Diaries 2 because Jenny reminded me that Chris Pine is in it and I was like SOLD.

Saturday morning I had to work at the tennis courts from 8:45-11 and I had every intention of working out before going to work, but I woke up with a killer headache. I guess those spring allergies are already starting! I ended up sleeping in a little, which I’m thankful for since I rarely have days that I’m able to do that. After the tennis courts, I ran to the gym to put in my hours/workout, but the gym was SO packed so I decided to go home for a few hours instead of working out quite yet.

Once home, my sister was still at work so I laid around on my couch with the cats (I’m turning into a cat lady which is terrifying because I am definitely NOT a cat lady) watching some YouTube and playing around on my phone.


Finally around 3:30 p.m. I peeled myself off the couch and headed back into the gym. I was feelin’ my outfit, but Puff did not want me to leave.



Good timing, too. There were only two other guys in the weight room and neither of them were bad to look at. 😉 You know how they talk about creepy men in the gym? Sometimes I think I’m the “creepy man in the gym” 😉 I ended up working back and chest, but honestly I don’t like most chest workouts, so I threw in some extra back workouts (face pulls, bar push down, pull-ups) and ended up stretching/foam rolling for a good 15 minutes.


Once I was finally done at the gym, I headed to Target to pick up a few food items (I swear all of my money goes to food) and then back to my apartment with some Chipotle in hand (because … well, because). As of this week I’m going to try not to spend any unnecessary money at restaurants again. I spent well over $100 just in a week on food and I need to save some of that money (and calories) for Hawaii!

I wanted to go to bed at 7 p.m., but decided to go with my sister to TJ Maxx. I tried on like 11 pieces of clothing and didn’t come home with one thing. Jenny thought it would be funny to put this sticker on my butt, though.


I did get a pair of wedges, sunglasses and underwear (pic below, minus the underwear because that’s weird). None of my clothes fit besides my workout clothes, so I really need to go shopping but it’s expensive. 🙁 I did end up going to bed around 10:30, so I was feeling it Sunday morning with the 5:45 a.m. wake-up call for work.

TJ Maxx

Sunday started off early, so off to Starbucks I went and then to the gym. The gym is starting to get a lot quieter now that the weather is “nicer” (though it’s freezing). We’ll switch over to our summer hours in May, so I’ll probably not be working as much which is a double-edged sword. More free-time, but less money for that free-time. Anyways, the gym was pretty quiet, but freezing so I played around on the computer all morning.


Once my shift was done at 2, I headed into the weight room to knock out my arms and core workout that was scheduled for the day. Rough … but I did it!


I got home, ate, hung out with my sister and ended up going to bed early-ish (though I was falling asleep on the couch at 5 p.m. – ha!) This Monday morning started off early with another lower body workout and I am the CAPTAIN of the struggle bus today. But ONE MONTH UNTIL HAWAII!!!

best friends

How was your weekend?
Does it feel like spring where you are yet? Moving to Hawaii is seeming like a better idea every day for me …

Linking up with Katie!

    It didn’t feel like spring around here either! It snowed Saturday, tomorrow is going to be 75 and we’re supposed to get snow again on Thursday. NO. Okay, I highly doubt that you’re the creepy “guy” at the gym, haha. Those guys are just ridiculous which you’re not. But.. your weekend sounds pretty awesome (other than work of course)– Chipotle & TJ Maxx.. my favorites!

      It was a pretty good weekend, even with the work scattered in! I can’t believe you’re getting 75 degrees! Jealous! We’re hunkering down for this “huge” snowstorm we’re supposed to get Wednesday-Thursday. It’s all over the weather. I will laugh really hard if we get like 1 inch.
