Hey you! How was your weekend? I hope it was great. Mine included plenty of down-time, with just the right amount of activity — and a good mixture of healthy food, treats, socializing and couch time. Let’s chat about the happenings and finish up with my usual weekly workout recap.
Do you ever have times when you go “dark.” As in, leave your phone at home and go do something? Dave and I did that on Friday night, and it was nice to have no technology, but we totally missed one awesome photographic opportunity. We rode our bikes to the food truck area in Pleasant Hill and brought Rudy. I didn’t want Rudy to ride in the basket of my bike (because that makes me nervous), so Dave just held him instead. And it was the most hilarious thing ever. Rudy’s ears were flapping in the wind as we rode down the trail for a few minutes. We laughed the whole way there and back. HA!
This was a fairly productive day for a Saturday, to tell you the truth. Dave and I were up by 7 a.m. because I had to drop him off at the golf course for a day of fun he was going on with some guys for a “Dadchelor” party. After dropping him off, I went straight to the gym for a rushed session. In 30 minutes flat, I went into the gym, warmed up, foam rolled, did a weights workout, stretched and got back in my car. I had to move quickly so I could get home and shower and head back out for a hair appointment. Once the hair was done, I stopped by home for a quick change, and then I met some girlfriends in downtown Walnut Creek for a lovely outdoor lunch at Maria Maria. (Which we joked was the “Momcherlorette” portion of the day, while the guys were out galavanting.)
Once lunch was over, I did some shopping around Broadway Plaza for some essentials. Then I went home to spend the rest of the evening hanging out with Rudy. We caught up on some crappy TV, i.e. “LA Clippers Dance Squad,” which does not even come close to touching my favorite dance team, the DCC.
And just like that, we’re into round two of the NBA Playoffs. I went to the Warriors game against Portland with some friends and luckily was able to ride with Dave there and back while he worked. The Warriors won (of course!), and it was a fun time. We had some loud people sitting in the seats behind us who kept us entertained.
In the afternoon and evening, Dave and I did the usual Sunday stuff. Laundry, food prep, week prep and all of that jazz. You know? And then the weekend was over. It was a good one! (And here’s a picture of Rudy before we transition …)

How did this past week of workouts go?
Six workouts in one week? While that used to be the low side of my workout frequency months ago, these days I’m totally happy to get in five workouts total and amazed to see six happen. However, that doesn’t mean I overdid it at all. Two of my workouts were super light (the 45-minute FlyBarre classes are not very intense), and I had a full rest day. The best part of this week was the weightlifting I did on Thursday, because I worked with a personal trainer. More details coming on that soon. Overall, a strong week of workouts including THREE sessions with weights, which was the goal.
I hope you have a fabulous week, my friends! I’ll check in with you soon!A #weeklyworkout recap and some other fun ... Click To Tweet
