Weekend Recap and Weekly Workout Recap

Weekend Recap

Good morning! I hope you had a good weekend. It’s been a fun one for me. On Friday Derek and I saw The Amazing Spider-Man 2 with his friends from med school. After the movie, we all got blue cups and listened to live music at the Chapel Hill bar He’s Not Here to celebrate. They are officially done with their second year! Now it’s all about studying for the Step 1, which is their board exam that covers everything they learned over the past two years. It’s a huge deal, and it will be Derek’s focus for the next 6 weeks until June 17th.


On Saturday I finally started working on organizing and decorating our new place. We moved back in March, but life has been to crazy to work on the house until now. I’m trying to get as much done as I can before my parents come to visit next weekend for my graduation. I’m thinking about posting before and after pictures and information about some of my DIY projects. Derek and I ended the day with a nice date. We went to dinner at an Italian restaurant and rented American Hustle. It was a wonderful date.

Sunday I worked around the house cooking, cleaning, and decorating. We made lightened-up cobb salads for lunch and beef kabobs for dinner. I’ll share the recipe for both of these dishes soon. We finished out the weekend watching Game of Thrones with our friends. Derek and I sold our souls to Time Warner Cable just to get HBO for 3 months of GoT. Sad, but true. Overall, it has been a great, relaxing weekend. Now I’m getting excited for next weekend! My family and Derek’s family will be here for my graduation, and we’re leaving for Kiawah next Sunday. So pumped.

Weekly Workout Recap

When I first looked at my recap, the all-or-nothing thinker in me said, Only 20 or 30 minutes? This is barely working out. Workouts should be at least 45 minutes. Now I am trying to reframe those thoughts. Now I look at my recap and think, Wow! I worked out 5 days this week. I even ran 3 days after hardly working out at all for the past few months. This is a great start back to exercising. This week reminded me how great running feels and how much I missed it. I also enjoyed lifting weights with Derek at the gym yesterday. I am quite sore today though.

Monday: 20 minute run


I often run on the American Tobacco Trail. It’s so green right now!

Tuesday: 30 minute walk

Wednesday: Off

Thursday: 30 minute run

Friday: Off

Saturday: 25 minute run

Sunday: Strength training


Sweaty, post-gym selfie or it didn’t happen. 🙂

My workout goal for this coming week is to incorporate more strength training. Do you have specific exercise goals you’re working towards? What’s on your workout agenda this week? I love getting ideas from other people!
