I hope you had a great weekend, my friends. Mine was pretty uneventful, which is fine by me. Let’s talk about it, then we’ll get into the fitness.
Relaxing outdoor picnic at Civic Park
I didn’t do much of anything on Friday evening, outside of working on some freelance writing projects and hanging out at home with Rudy. On Saturday morning, I went to a terrible power yoga class for my daily dose of fitness (same one I went to last week, and no, it wasn’t better this time). In the afternoon, Dave and I packed up our lunch and walked to a nearby park for a picnic with Rudy. It was such a nice and relaxing way to spend the day.
There were a few dogs there, and one little one in particular kept coming over and playing with Rudy — and he was excited, but also a little scared. In fact, they chased each other around and Rudy kept running back to land on my lap. We laid back on our picnic blanket for a while and then walked home. Almost two miles covered, so we got some good steps in for the day.
Delicious dinner at Penrose in Oakland
The highlight of the weekend was Saturday evening, when Dave and I went out to dinner with some friends at Penrose in Oakland. Although Dave works in Oakland, we have hardly ever gone there for dinner, so it was a good change of pace to get out of our bubble. Penrose was a typical trendy spot, with low lighting, communal tables, where you sit with people not in your party and quite delicious food.
Our group of six shared a couple of bottles of red wine, tasty flatbread with dipping sauce, meatballs, chicken, veggies and of course, three different kinds of dessert. A good time was had by all.
On Sunday, we did not much of anything, outside of working on our computers, watching TV, taking a walk with Rudy and some cooking. And then, the weekend was over.
My weekly fitness and workout recap
Every Monday, I like to take a look at my most recent week of workouts to stay accountable. And this week, I’m doing so as part of a “Week in Review” link-up with Meghan, so let’s get to it …

What was good about my week of workouts?
This past week was nearly identical to the one before it, featuring one full rest day, two full hours of yoga and three resistance training sessions. That’s pretty good variety, so I’m happy with it.
What could have been better about my week of workouts?
Ideally, full-body resistance training sessions should not be on consecutive days, but mine had to be that way due to my teaching schedule. I won’t be subbing a third BODYPUMP this upcoming week, so that should help.
I hope you have a good day, friends. The countdown to Thanksgiving is on!Fitness and fun all in one post. Check this out ... #WeeklyWorkouts #Fitness Click To Tweet
