And that is alright with me!!! Not only was this weekend amazing…but today was technically my “Friday”!
[went totally comfy for today’s outfit…uggs, leggings, and big, soft sweater!]
The Buffalo Public High Schools get off from school this week every year while make up state exams are administered! Luckily…I never have had to take a retake so I always just get a free week! SCORE. And lucky for my grade…this is the last year they are giving this week off to highschoolers…so we just made the cut!! Again…winning.
So let’s have a little weekend recap…shall we! There were plenty of things that made it one of the better ones in A WHILE!
-I got my last major essay for IB done!!
YES!!! Such a weight lifted off my shoulders. Granted I still have a few internal assessments and over 35 hours of exams to go…but baby steps people…baby steps. If you want to know what exactly the IB program is go here. That’ll give you an idea of how rigorous it is!
-I celebrated my dad’s birthday with a wonderful dinner and some nice family bonding!
-I prepped TONS of food for the week!
I make a batch of soup and some random side dishes every Sunday just to have a on hand for the week ahead. It makes packing lunches and making quick meals SO much easier!
-I got in a great outdoor run!
Seriously, I think we all need to give ourselves some praise sometimes and I have to admit, every time I complete a tough run outside…I feel really proud!
-Had a major grocery restock!
Gotta love a fully stocked kitchen.
Compared to the weekend today was pretty much a bust at school. All I could look forward to was the upcoming days off and I pretty much zoned out all day! But surprisingly the day went pretty quick and I got out of school ready to start my vacation!
Got in a SUPER workout!
Might seem like a lot but I was SO energized today for some reason! I guess that’s what a few great days will do for ya! Plus I had a lot of magazines and TV shows to catch up on. Priorities people.
Sweat Sesh Side Note:
Has anyone ever seen someone workout in their work clothes? There is this lady who I see almost every time I am at the gym, in dresses, blazers, skirts, dress pants, etc. working out on the machines! It is SO bizarre! She puts sneakers on and then just gets going! I mean seriously…how long does it take to change into some workout gear?! I wouldn’t want to be sweating and getting all nasty in my expensive work clothes. To each her own I guess?
[she might as well have been wearing this!!!]
My gym is just plain weird.
Can’t wait to catch up on some much needed things this week and rejuvenate a bit before going head first into exam prep and such when I get back to school next week.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
What’s your favorite way to enjoy time off from work/school?
Need your help: I want to try the Arc Trainer tomorrow…but I’m a little intimidated! Does anyone have a good routine or workout for it that they’re willing to share?
HAVE YOU ENTERED MY GIVEAWAY YET!?!?! You have until tomorrow!!!
