I’m back from Naples. It was a super quick work trip for me.
I left for the airport early in the afternoon on Thursday and made a stop at the store to grab a snack before my flight.
Justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups = Heaven.
I got to the airport with plenty of time and was able to get some work done while I waited for my flight to arrive. I decided I wasn’t too excited about the book I brought and found this one.
I eventually landed, but couldn’t get my Uber app to work. I decided to grab a taxi instead. The driver was waaaayyy too chatty and had no idea what he was doing. He got us lost (lost!) and then he took me to the wrong hotel. I wish I was kidding. Our trip took three times as long as it should have. Luckily, it was a flat rate, but by the end I was in no mood. I made it to the hotel around 11:30 pm, showered and then crashed.
The next morning I got up and headed downstairs to the lobby for coffee and then back to my room to work.
20 min AFAP (PaleOMG):
20 air squats
25 mountain climbers
After the 20 minutes, I then completed 3 rounds of the following:
band walks (30 total)
band pull aparts (30 total)
I quickly showered and got ready to go.
The plan was to meet my colleague downstairs and head to the club for our event. I missed the breakfast in the lobby so I ate a banana and some almonds before we left.
The event was held at a local country club and it was gorgeous. The weather was 75 and sunny. I was kicking myself for not bringing Matt and staying through the weekend.
Following the event we changed and headed to the airport. Things went much smoother on the way home. I was back around 11 pm, emptied my suitcase (anyone else have to do that as soon as they get home from a trip?) and then went to bed.
I slept in till 6:30 am (that’s late for me!) on Saturday and jumped out of bed to shower before my ladies woke up. They got up around 7 am and it was soooo good to see them. Even though I was only gone for 2 days it felt like much longer. I seriously missed those little cuties.
We all had smoothies for breakfast. This one was a cherry, banana, spinach number (using a frozen smoothie pack). Afterwards we played for a bit and made daddy a valentine.
Matt left for work and I took the girls to Whole Foods for a late breakfast. They ate bacon, plantains, cantaloupe, pineapple and black beans (their choices). Afterwards, we walked around outside for a bit and then headed back home.
A little while later Matt came home and asked if I wanted to take a run. I wasn’t planning on working out that day because I have been feeling off after my travel, but I can never refuse the chance to get out for a run. So out I went. It was around 30 degrees, but very sunny. The wind was crazy strong and I really had to push against some gusts at times. I did 4 miles with an average pace of 7:54.
Later that evening we watched The Martian which was just so-so. I have seen way too many movies that involve rescuing Matt Damon from space.
Sunday was Valentine’s Day so we gave the girls their treats.
Here’s what I ended up going with:
- magic marker stamps
- animal stamps
- magic wands
- YumEarth organic gummy bears (I only gave them a couple)
Then the girls had breakfast: eggs and bacon, raspberries and greek yogurt mixed with some strawberry jam. Afterwards, we played inside for most of the morning.
I later went to an Orangetheory class and then did some cooking while the girls napped. I made a chocolate peanut butter pie using just 5 ingredients and it turned out really well. I will share the recipe soon.
We’re looking at a possible snow day here – I can hear the sleet now. Happy Monday!
