What a fun weekend I had! How was yours, my friends? Let’s do a quick recap and then talk fitness …
These Keds were made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do …
On Friday, I went to CorePower for a hot yoga-flow class and ran into the lovely Hayley, which was a good start for the weekend. In the afternoon, I got a haircut and then rushed to downtown Walnut Creek for a wine date with Nichole at Va de Vi. Nichole, who is an incredibly successful fashion blogger and all around sweet gal, lives super close to me and also moved to the Bay Area from Florida just a few months before me. Believe it or not, we met on Instagram, and this was our first time hanging out. It won’t be the last — I love meeting new people, especially bloggers who are so cool. And if you aren’t following her yet, you really should. #FashionGoals
On Saturday, I worked on memorizing BODYATTACK moves, then Dave and I hit up the gym for a short weights session. Around lunch-time, I had a fabulous massage, which I’ll tell you more about soon. In the afternoon, we went out to grab groceries for our dinner party and did some shopping at the Rack. In the evening, we went out to dinner in downtown Walnut Creek to Oyama Sushi, for a tasty meal, and as usual, we dined at the bar. Saturday marked exactly seven years since we first met. A marriage, a cross-country move and one small white puppy later. My how time flies!
Sake, sushi and a sweater dress. A good Saturday night.
On Sunday, it was all BODYATTACK, blogging, work, cleaning and party prep, until we welcomed our friends over around 5 p.m. for the “Mexican Supper Club.” We have an awesome group of couples, who live near us, and it was finally our turn to host the regular rotating dinner, and we selected Mexican food as the theme. We had Spanish guitar tunes blasting and plenty of appetizers and margaritas, which we enjoyed while chatting and playing games, then we all sat down for a tasty taco dinner and Mexican brownies for dessert (my contribution, of course). Who needs restaurants when you can have so much fun at your own home, right?
This weekend was full of spending time with my favorites, Dave and Rudy, and other great friends. You can’t ask for much more. Now here’s to a VERY busy week, with some updates coming your way in the next couple of days.

What was good about my week of workouts?
This past week was full of practicing BODYATTACK cardio moves at home in order to prepare for teaching a new release (much of the time, I didn’t do the moves full out, so they aren’t making the workout recap). I did cardio three times (all BODYATTACK), lifted weights three times, did yoga and fit in a full rest day — so the week was complete. The highlight of the week was most definitely the extremely hot and sweaty CorePower Vinyasa flow yoga class I took on Friday. I haven’t taken a great studio yoga class in a while, and CorePower moves nice and fast, which is just how I like it.
What could have been better about my workouts?
This past week was much more balanced than my last few, so I’ll take it.
That’s it for today, my friends. I hope you have a great start to your week! (P.S. Thanks to Meghan for hosting today’s “Week in Review” link-up.)How have your workouts been? Check out this #workout round-up ... #WeeklyWorkouts Click To Tweet
