well happy monday!
happy june.
how was the weekend? mine was good and relaxing. and included no food prep. except for these little lemon bites to take along to california this week ( i subbed almonds for cashews, added 1 tbsp of gelatin, forgot the vanilla, and used 1/2 lemon juice + 1/2 water). so good!

friday, i got to enjoy a much needed margarita with some mexican food, shopping and coconut milk ice cream. saturday morning was a quick run and a killer leg day. this workout was tough and the workout bud was not so happy at the end. with no heavy lifting for about 2 weeks, so i wanted to get in a good session. this one sure delivered and i’ll share it soon. in the meantime, check out this leg day post from friday.

also, i GOT MY PULL-UP! finally.

i technically did 2.5 total. had to get in a solid video to show you all. check it out here.
i spent the afternoon at a dodgeball tournament, after the workout bud convinced me it’d be fun and promised ice cream if i tagged along. i ended up sitting and watching most of the tournament thanks to the morning workout. and i finished the night by seeing the other woman with my mom and sister. a little cleaning and last minute san francisco shopping on sunday, with a little sun time and an attempt at packing. you’ll find out tomorrow that i HATE packing.

i am particularly excited for today. getting my nails done after word. and leaving for california tomorrow morning! this will be my first time out to cali. the workout bud and i are both going to see our besties (we met at their wedding << check us out). i’m still working on the list of things i want to do while out there, but muir woods and going to the beach are on the top. let me know if you have any suggestions.
