Let’s get this out of the way early: I’m writing this post BEFORE the Warriors NBA Finals game 7 last night. Depending on the outcome, that will completely determine whether I can officially say “Happy Monday” to you or not. So let’s just do a little weekend recap and then talk about fitness.
A pretty low-key weekend in Walnut Creek
On Friday evening, when I got home from work, Dave and I were doing the ever-popular “What should we do tonight?” discussion, and we decided to take it easy, change into our comfortables (I was already in mine having worn workout clothes to work in order to take a lunch-time yoga class), and go sit at the pool just to relax. The weather was perfect for it. We put our feet up, listened to some music and just sat there. After that, we made dinner at home (fish, broccoli and sweet potato fries — totally random assortment) and watched some TV. Pretty exciting stuff. No pictures to show, of course.
On Saturday morning, I taught BODYPUMP to a full room of more then 50 people. Then I hit up Trader Joe’s for groceries for the week. I haven’t done our shopping at TJ’s in a long time, and I forgot how many good and easy healthy options there are. For instance, pre-washed Brussels sprouts and cauliflower rice — yes, please — I completely filled my cart. The rest of the afternoon included time at home, a pedicure and a trip to Starbucks.
That afternoon, Dave and I took some pizza, flowers and beer over to some of our friends who just had a tiny baby girl. The baby was adorable, and we enjoyed meeting her! Side note: Our group of friends does a “food-drop list” and schedule for everyone who has a baby. Totally neat idea, right?
In the evening, we went to dinner at Havana’s in downtown Walnut Creek for some Latin beverages and tapas. And we finished up with some cupcakes at Kara’s and watching some hilarious stand-up comedy special on TV.
Sunday involved food prep for the week, chores and being nervous about the Warriors game. However, also cool to note that my awesome older brother flew in from Atlanta just in time to go to game 7 with me, so I met him at the arena. Whether we won or lost, I’m really happy he was there to experience it with me. Now, let’s talk fitness …

How did this past week of workouts go?
The best part about this past week of workouts was making it to the BODYFLOW class during lunch on Friday. This class is a mixture of yoga and Tai Chi, and it’s absolutely enjoyable and rejuvenating — I needed it! I also fit in two sessions of cardio and three sessions of weight, so the week went well on the fitness front.
