Bloody Mary’s, lots of champagne, dirty martinis, and more.  There may have also been a drink with a penis straw in it but I didn’t want anyone to get offended by the picture ;)

Also, switching gears…workouts from last week:

  • Monday: 4 mile run + full body
  • Tuesday: rest, light walk with Mav
  • Wednesday: 4 mile run + abs & booty, 20 minute walk with Mav
  • Thursday: 30 minute walk with Mav + kickboxing
  • Friday: 3.5 mile run + abs
  • Saturday: weekend off
  • Sunday: weekend off

I just went to that Athletic Conditioning class at the YMCA again tonight…whew! It wears me out.  Today was circuits that alternated 2 minutes of cardio stuff and 2 minutes of weights, and we ended with about 15 minutes of sprints.

How was your weekend?  Did you start off your week with a workout?
