We had a fabulous weekend that seemed to fly by. Friday night we had Hubs’ parents over and they brought pizza (PIZZA!) and spent some time with Jillian. Saturday I started my day with a 2 mile walk around the ‘hood. It felt good to move after being sedentary on Friday. I even threw in a running interval or two to keep me on track with my C25K. Later that day my friend Carrie (HI CARRIE!) came by to meet Jillian for the first time. We had a great time visiting and catching up, and Jillian enjoyed meeting her “Auntie” Carrie. (Both Hubs and I are only children, which means Jillian doesn’t have any real aunts or uncles, so all of our friends are Jillian’s aunts and uncles)
After that, my parents came up for their weekly visit and allowed Hubs and I to go out and do something fun. And we did! I gave Hubs two options - one was to go out to Magic Kingdom and have dinner out there and putz around. The other option was to go out to The Boardwalk at Disney and go to our favorite restaurant out there …
Beaches and Cream. We obviously opted for that.
|Yay! That was my first choice!|
Beaches and Cream is an old fashioned soda fountain type place which specializes in fun food (think burgers and sandwiches) and ice cream. We love going out there because who doesn’t like burgers and ice cream? Yeah, it’s not on my post-baby diet plan, but whatever.
I saw this dessert on the menu that piqued my interest...
Banana bread? Peanut butter? My favorite flavor combination!!
It was fabulous! Hubs opted for the chocolate cake a la mode. It was huge.

All in all, we had a fabulous date night!

Sunday we spent hanging with my parents and just enjoying the day. And now it’s Monday again. Tell me, why must the weeks go by so fast? Pretty soon I am going to be back at work, which freaks me out. I do miss working, but right now I cannot even fathom having to balance work with Jillian. It’s just too much to even think about right now. Yikes!
Today starts week 2 of Couch to 5K. I haven’t done a C25K workout since last Thursday (since the program only calls for 3 workouts a week), so I’m a little apprehensive about graduating to the next level. Not sure why, I’m only bumping up my running intervals by 30 seconds, which is no big deal, but for some reason it seems like it. We’ll see how it goes. I plan on doing C25K this week on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. On days I don’t do C25K I’ll be doing other forms of exercise by way of DVDs, Hulu workouts and strength training. And of course walks with Jillian, which I just got back from.
And I am excited to report that I have set my sights on a 5K. In order to test if Couch to 5K really works, I figure I need to schedule myself for a 5K close to my finishing the 9 week program. So April 27th is the day. It’s a couple of week after the C25K program ends for me, but that allows me a little wiggle room just in case I’m not up to par by the end of the 9 weeks. Exciting right?
And with that, I should get going. I hope you’re having a wonderful Monday!
