Good morning and happy Monday friends. Is it just me, or do you get excited about Mondays? I love a fresh start to the week- I always write out all my goals and I plan out all my meals and workouts. There’s something about the newness of the week that inspires me.
Monday’s also inspire me to drink chocolate shakes for breakfast.
Currently, I’m sitting here, soaking in the air conditioning, drinking my coffee, and reflecting on the weekend. After two back to back, packed weekends, this relaxing weekend was wonderful.
Shade + breeze = Amazing.
Once we got home, Landon and I refueled with protein smoothies, I ran errands, we worked on laundry, and I cleaned the house.
Saturday evening, Landon and I went out to my Aunt and Uncles’ and celebrated the Fourth of July a little early. My Aunt and Uncle host an annual Fourth of July party, complete with games, food (Notice the picture below!), and fireworks.
Sunday morning consisted of: protein smoothies, coffee, and church. After church, Landon and I relaxed, rested, napped, and relaxed some more. 😉 (Also known as, we layed around all day.)
Sometimes, when I spend a day relaxing, I feel bad that I’m not doing more than just resting, but yesterday, it was so needed.
After a couple hours of doing nothing but chatting, napping, and working on some house projects, I whipped up a quick dinner of beef brisket, corn on the cob, and a salad.
After dinner, we took a two mile walk, watched “War Room,” and enjoyed some healthy pie.
All in all, this weekend was perfect. It was a great balance of time spent with others and time spent together.
I’m off for now, check back in later for a new dinner recipe!
