Weekend Update With Caitlin

I’ll just let that title be my audition for SNL!

I intended to do another Weekend Recap of pictures for you this morning, but I only came away with two pictures to share. Whoops. I fell out of the habit of snapping my food and whereabouts and it makes for a sad blog post.

Before we go into the weekend, I should take this time to shoutout a Happy Birthday message to my dog Mac! We usually have about 80 birthday celebrations for him in the month of March, but today is the actual day. If I didn’t include this, my mom would have been furious.

This weekend included some quality friend time. Starting with Friday night when I met up with some work friends for dinner, drinks, and fro yo. Life is not complete without a little sweetness to end the day!* (*Too much sweetness lately, but I’ll get to that in tomorrow’s post!)

After work and a run on Saturday, it was time to catch up with a few friends from college. We made chicken with peppers, zucchini, and lots of chips and salsa to go with our fancy pants margaritas. To make the drinks, we chopped off a ton of fresh strawberries and limes and blended it all together. Yum!

After a night out, we woke up hungry! Scrambled eggs, english muffins, and bacon were on the menu! A little later, we were all curled up on the couches and watching Harry Potter Weekend. Those movies (but especially the books) never get old! They are…wait for it…MAGICAL!!!! We also ended up getting some pizza for lunch and I have no regrets!

I did manage to make myself workout on Sunday. Since it was so nice, I started things off with a brisk two mile walk with my mom and the dog. At the gym, it was biceps and shoulders day, so I did six moves, four sets, and 12 reps for each muscle group. To top things off, I also did a circuit of core exercises, which I try to incorporate into every workout.

The core is so important and not just to work that six/eight pack! I for one have what’s equivalent to a one pack, but I’m proud of that bad boy because I’ve been working HARD at it these past few months. Ever since I started studying, I realized how important the core is to the success of the entire body and so I pay it special attention. When I first started, I pulled something in my abdominals using the roller, so I stopped using it and decided to build up those muscles another way. A few months later and I’m finding the roller to be too easy. Hard work leads to success, there are no shortcuts (that will make worthwhile progress!)

The rest of the night, I spent doing laundry and taking a bath to try out my first Lush bath bomb. LOVED it! I think I’ll have to make it more routine in my life.

This morning, I started my day with scrambled egg whites, french toast, and the sweetest berries! Again, I forgot to take a picture, but I will be better about it! Now I’m listening to Adele and getting some work done.

Happy Monday!
