Another weekend has come and gone! How was yours? There were some highs and a bit of a low for me. While I’d like to look back on the past couple of days as being awesome, I also dropped my new iPhone on a hard-tile floor at the gym and shattered the screen. And that was one expensive mistake. But let’s get to the good stuff …
Friday night …
I left work right at 5 p.m. to make it to a special BODYATTACK class, which I attended along with some fellow instructors and members. Les Mills trainer Jeremiah was in town (he used to live in San Francisco, and I worked with him at the Les Mills office for a few months), and he taught one heck of a class to our spirited group. It was a fun and sweaty time for me as a participant, and I loved trying the new release (BODYATTACK 92), before I have to learn it to teach in my own classes. Good times!
The best part about going to work out on Friday night? No traffic on the way home! Woohoo! (Sadly, Bay Area traffic is perhaps the toughest thing I’ve encountered while going back to work in a regular office setting over the last month.)
After the gym, it was pajamas, wine, Whole Foods sushi and couch-time for me with Dave and Rudy, which was exactly what I needed. Seriously, nothing feels better than slipping into your comfortables on a Friday night. You know what I mean?
Saturday was one great day. I woke up in the morning feeling so refreshed after getting eight full hours of sleep. I took Rudy for a little walk on the trail, then went to get a fabulous massage before having an outdoor lunch with Dave and Rudy at our favorite spot, Tender Greens, in downtown Walnut Creek.
From there, I did some shopping for work clothes, which was only moderately successful, because I actually ended up buying more workout clothes and sneakers. Whoops!
My massage took place at Woodhouse Spa, and let me tell you, it was a lovely spot. Dave’s parents got me a gift card for Christmas, and I was finally able to put it to use. I could have stayed on that massage table all day long, but eventually those 50 minutes ended. I walked out of there smelling like essential oils and feeling super relaxed. For my local friends out there, I would definitely recommend this place if you’re in need of some pampering. It’s top notch!
In the evening, Dave and I joined some friends for a little birthday celebration and Warriors game watch party at an Italian restaurant. And of course, the Warriors won, so we were a happy group. (Yes, when your spouse and many of your friends work for the team, the tone of the night is usually dictated by the game’s outcome. That’s another reason why it’s good to be a Golden State fan this year!)
Sunday was productive, but not super exciting. I took a yoga class at Yoga Treat, grocery shopped, prepped some food, attempted to get my poor phone fixed (so annoying), learned BODYATTACK, had an oven pizza for dinner with Dave and got ready for the week ahead. And that was it. Overall, one very good weekend!

How did this past week of workouts go?
This was the fullest week of workouts that I’ve had in a while, thanks to that second BODYATTACK/cardio session on Friday night. I felt great in the fitness department all week and am happy to report I checked all the boxes of cardio, weights, yoga and a full day of rest. Good stuff!Keeping it light with weekend snapshots and weekly #workouts ... Click To Tweet
