Gainesville, Gators and Playing Catch-up

Boy have I been busy!!!  This past weekend I went to Gainesville for the LSU/UF game and since I’ve come home, it’s been nothing but non-stop!

I’ll start from the beginning…

The night before I left for Gainesville I made this delicious recipe that I found on the Carrots N Cake blog:

Chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, apples, cinnamon, yellow onion and spinach.  The recipe can be found here:



While I was cooking, these sweet puppies came in the mail!


Then it was off to Gainesville!  I flew into Orlando and had to drive what is supposed to be 1.5 hours to Gainesville.  Since I live in Chicago, I don’t have a car and so naturally, the first time I get behind the wheel in 7 months, it is pouring down rain and there is an 8 car pile-up.  We sat in the same spot for 2 hours…SUPER!


By the time we got to Gainesville, it was about 8:00 PM so we headed to a bar and met up with my sister-in-law (left), my friend Genell (middle) and my brother-in-law (not pictured).  It was great to see them!


The next day was game day!!! Woo hoo!  My step-brother met up with me right before I went into the game.  Our seats were awesome (in the shade) and we won!!!  GO GATORS!


Overall, it was a great weekend BUT, I ate like crap and drank way too much.

To make it worse, work was a mad-house once I came back and I had to stay until 10:00 PM last night!  This meant no working out.  I tried to redeem myself by waking up early this morning to get in a quick run but I was so tired from my long day yesterday that I didn’t make it.

But today will be my catch-up day.  After work, I plan on doing some laundry and running for about 30 minutes + 15 minutes on the elliptical + core strength training.  I’ve got to catch back up after a long weekend of going all willy-nilly!

Happy hump day!
