One Productive Mama!

Yesterday was so PRODUCTIVE.

I started my morning off by cleaning the apartment…so much fun, right?

Then I ran 5 miles averaging about 10:30 per mile, which is pretty good for me.  Scooby wanted to come with me but I had to explain to him that his legs are too short for longish runs.  Sorry buddy.Image

Check out the view at mile 3…


After my run I took a quick shower and went shopping! Yay!!  I got some pretty sweet deals, including this little number:Image

The Gators played the Gamecocks (and kicked their butts!) so before meeting up with the gang at Sully’s (Chicago’s gator bar), I made this awesome salad.  Artisan lettuce, walnuts, chopped up apple, chopped up figs, gorgonzola, drizzled honey and olive oil.  DELISH! Image

I contemplated getting these pillows for my couch but Bryan said it would be a bit much, but maybe I’ll convince him to buy them next time (once he is good and drunk).  It’s a terrible picture (after all, we were in a dark bar), but you get the point.Image

I thought it was ironic that there was this body shaping place across the street from the bar.  We all agreed that after drinking so many calories in beer, we should definitely hit up this place after.Image

Quote of the day “I always notice that you are losing weight because your boobs get smaller.”  Thanks honey but I was hoping something along the lines of “I always notice you are losing weight because your BUTT gets smaller.”  Ah, the joys of marriage!Image

Anyone else have a productive Saturday?


Hang Over Saturday?

This morning I was a little hung over from having a bit too much wine with dinner last night so I was quite proud of myself for peeling myself off the couch to go do some cardio.

I did 30 minutes on the elliptical with alternating resistances.  Man, is that thing BORING!!

What would I do without my InStyle magazine????


Then, after my little workout, I went to Marianos to pick up some salad.  I think because I was so hungry, I went a little overboard with my toppings.  It looks like the salad bar threw up on my lettuce but you know what? It was delicious.


Later, I am headed to State Street to do some fall shopping.  What can I say? The magazine inspiried me to spend my husband’s money look fabulous.

Have a great weekend everyone!
