I hope you all sang that title to the tune of “Without Me” by Eminem. Because I did… And it made me think of middle school. Anyways… How was everyones weekend?! I’m linking up with Erin for Weekend Recap, Tara for Weekend Update, and Katie for Marvelous Monday to tell you all about my Marvelous Weekend.
I spent the majority of my weekend outside. I am beyond exhausted from all the fresh air, but I absolutely love it. I cannot believe we’re officially half way through June. Where is the time going? (I sound like my mother)…
Saturday was an amazing day in the city. Brunch was at Vic’s downtown in NoHo, and was absolutely delicious. I’m still not feeling great, so I kept my meal simple with plain scrambled egg whites. BF had a brisket sandwich with a hard boiled egg that he said was pretty good. Vic’s was delicious, but probably a bit expensive. The decor was adorable and they had an option for outdoor seating which I thought was great. Probably the highlight of the restaurant was that it was not swarmed with people, so we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves without feeling rushing in and out. It was fantastic celebrating with Caroline and I wish her the happiest of birthdays! xoxo
After brunch we headed uptown to the UES to partake in the housewarming festivities of one of BFs fraternity brothers. They have a great apartment, with an outdoor patio… in Manhattan. Pretty amazing. It was great catching up and there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting outside and drinking with friends. I also played beer pong for the first time in I don’t want to say how long. Again I wasn’t able to drink, thanks Crohn’s, but I was surprised with how much more HORRIBLE I am then I was in college. #Embarrassing
Sunday was absolutely glorious. I got to spend some time at the beach and took my pup for a run on the fields at my old high school. The weekend wrapped up with dinner with my family and Game of Thrones. I’m still coping with the fact that this season is over…
So where am I with running?
I started Saturday off with my first real run since my Crohn’s flare started last week. I was able to get in 8 miles at around a 7’56” pace. I was pretty surprised, as the run felt difficult with the heat, but was happy at how fresh my legs were feeling. I took Sunday off but am so ready to keep running this week.
Currently, I am not feeling any better. I still am having trouble keeping food down, and have remained pretty sensitive towards all the food I can actually digest. Fatigue is still present, but on the positive side of things, I haven’t gotten any worse. While I am experiencing some weight loss, it seems manageable at this point. I’m able to see the doctor next week, which is definitely something positive I am looking forward to. Because who doesn’t like getting poked and prodded with needles? Remember that time I almost went to medical school.. LOL.
So what to look forward to this week? Company summer BBQ, some more time with friends, and another relaxing weekend at the beach. I’m hoping that I can get some more miles in and hit between 30-40. I will definitely keep in mind how I’m feeling but seeing that running seems to not make things worse at the moment, why not? Amirite? I am looking to get in a solid 10 miler this week or weekend as I am still signed up to pace at Fairfield in two weekends. I’m pretty nervous, and am hoping that I am feeling better by then, but I think that only time will tell.
I hope you all have a fabulous Monday, and had an even better weekend!
What is one thing you’re looking forward to this week?
What is one thing you MUST do on Sunday to get ready for the week? I always have to go to the grocery store.. Otherwise I will only be eating take out for lunch and dinner every day. And ain’t nobody got time for that.
Do you prefer Saturday or Sunday? I love Sundays because I finally relax. On Saturdays I usually find myself being very active and busy, busy, busy. They’re great in their own way, but I really feel the best on Sundays.
