Make-your-monday-legendaryGood Morning!
Happy Monday!!

Cue my monthly…’I can’t believe another month has gone by. It goes so much faster the older I get…’ speech. For real.

How was your weekend? Relaxing? Fun? Awesome? Mine was pretty great. Friday, I left early for a meeting that got postponed, so I took it as an opportunity to spend time at the library working on some personal training templates and other business stuff – like creating a workout plan for a few new clients. I do so much better working sometimes if I am in a coffee shop or library. Ideally coffee shop, but girl ain’t made of money, so I’m trying to go for the library these days.

IMG_1385.JPGSaturday, I taught BodyWorks in the morning. It was a good class, for sure. I finally got into my BodyWorks groove and I think my workouts are pretty good these days. I went with The Workout Bud to do his taxes and planned my bootcamp class for this week. We are doing…MONOPOLY!! Cannot wait! Then I sat down to watch the series finale of Hart of Dixie (so good!) and worked on addressing my wedding invite envelopes. And I finished addressing my wedding invites. It took a minute, but I’m halfway done – just need to address the RSVP’s. 68 DAYS!!!!!

wedding invites mondayI taught another BodyWorks class on Sunday morning before church. I definitely felt it from my Saturday workout. After church, I did some random things around the apartment, until The Workout Bud and I headed to his parents house for dinner and Interstellar. He brought in that plate and said, the one on the right is mine, you can have the one on the left. Do you see how gigantic steak?!

giant steak mondayI opted for the smaller steak and sweet potato. I ate the left side (the best part) and about 1/3 of the right side. It was delightful. Let’s talk about Interstellar for a minute. I refused to see it with The Workout Bud when it came out; I totally wasn’t interested. But we watched part of it the other night and I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. And since his parents have been wanting to see it, we watched it last night. Really good movie. Definitely kept me entertained for the full 3 hours.
