And just like that, we’re back to the work week. I hope your weekend was great, my friends! Those couple of days sure do go by quickly. We’re going to do something different today and recap the weekend in pictures …
I got home after 7 p.m. from work on a rainy Friday evening, so it was a night in for the Pitts. Jammies, wine, a home-cooked meal and a few too many Tagalongs. Pretty glamorous stuff right there.
After an at-home yoga session and packing an overnight bag, Dave and Rudy and I hit the road for a little getaway. Our first stop? For a totally delicious meal at Vitality Bowls in downtown Walnut Creek. The sweet folks at Vitality Bowls treated Dave and I to lunch, and we were very pleased. If you’re in Bay Area and head to a VB, order the “Warrior” bowl with extra peanut butter — it’s like a PB&J in a bowl.
It’s nice to a have a small dog and visit dog-friendly hotels, that’s for sure. We arrived at our destination in the early afternoon. And although we stayed right on the beach in Santa Cruz, we didn’t step foot in the sand. Some of our friends recently moved to Santa Cruz, so a few of us went down to visit for the night. The afternoon and evening included hanging out at their new house and watching their dog chase Rudy. It was hilarious.
In the morning, Dave and I took Rudy for a little walk, but were disappointed to find out that dogs can’t go on the beach. So we picked up some breakfast at Peet’s and enjoyed it on the patio, soaking up some sun for a couple of hours. From there, we went to a two-year old’s Mickey Mouse-themed birthday party at our friends’ house, where we hung out for much of the day, laughing and chowing down. The afternoon and evening included driving back to Walnut Creek, taking care of all the “to-dos” and getting ready for the week ahead. It was a great weekend!

How did this past week of workouts go?
I’d say that last week featured a strong week of workouts for the amount of time I had available. I did two sessions of cardio, two sessions of weights, yoga and a core workout. Although I used to be adamant about getting in a full hour of sweat most days of the week, I’m happy to take those 25-30 minute workouts now, because they are certainly better than nothing.A trip to #SantaCruz in pictures and weekly #workouts ...
