I’m back – hello, 2020! Anyone else think we’d for sure have flying cars by now? 😉
We got back late on Friday night from our adventure in Aspen and were happy we had the weekend to get organized before rushing right back to work! We had quite the adventure in Colorado – more on that on Wednesday so stay tuned.
On Sunday morning, I got in my first run of 2020 with my friend Kathleen. It looked beautiful out, but man, was it cold and windy – it felt like we were running while someone held a band around our waists!
I thought I’d be all strong-lunged and feeling awesome after spending a week at high altitudes, but I felt pretty tired on this run – I was glad I had good company or I would not have made it nearly so far!
I did a really hard boot camp class before we left for the airport on Friday morning in Aspen, so maybe my body was still worn out from that + skiing + all the traveling with a toddler madness.
Kathleen is also doing the DC Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon, so we are going to start upping our mileage and training together – exciting!
As for food this weekend, we kept it low key. Friday night we got back so late we all had some quick peanut butter toast and went to bed. We were all wiped – Riese won’t nap on airplanes/in airports and it was wayyy past her bedtime, too – you can imagine what mood she was in by the time we got home…
For lunch both days this weekend we had a hummus, guac, chicken, tabouli, and arugula wrap with string beans:
On Saturday night, our friends Heather and Mike invited us over – their toddler is the same age as Riese and everyone always has a lot of fun at their place, so we were excited to see them!
We snacked on some cheese, crackers, salami, and beers that we brought with us and then enjoyed some vegetarian chili soup + salad + brownies for dinner:
As for Sunday night, Matt, Riese, and I were out running some errands in the afternoon after her nap, so we decided to grab dinner out. I was craving pizza! We tried a new-to-us spot called Lena’s that has wood-fired pizza.
Salads + beers to start:
And we got two smaller pizzas – a roasted veggie with fresh mozzarella and a balsamic glaze, and a classic pepperoni.
I just cracked open my new 2020 planner and am looking forward to getting back into a routine and catching up on life this week!
I’m thinking about sitting down and doing some intention-setting for the new year as I’ve been feeling a little lost work-wise lately and think that coming up with some goals/plans will help… what are your intentions/goals for 2020? I’d love to hear them!
Have a nice day and I’ll see you guys back here on Wednesday with some Aspen fun!
