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: http://sogoodpaleo.com/post/16445562729/skillet-sweet-potato-sausage-and-spinach-hash
It was DELICIOUS!
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!
