Weekend Recap- the weekend of naps


Monday, we meet again. I am lucky to say Monday is still my “weekend”, but it always feels like the weekend is over by Monday and I just get like a bonus day or something. Can you believe this past weekend was our LAST weekend in July?? Oh my gosh. It’s crazy to me to think about how FAST time is flying by. It will be August on Wednesday…summer will quickly come and go and then before we know it, it will be fall for a blink of an eye, and then BOOM-snow. (NOOOOO!!!) Okay, I am going to slow it down right there ya’ll because you know I love all things summer, warmth, sunshine, and just straight up HOT summer time.

How was your weekend? Did you make it a good one? My weekend was apparently the weekend of naps, and if you know anything about me, you know I don’t usually nap, but I just went with it this weekend and totally took more naps than I have all month.

Friday- I had work until late afternoon, but hit up Starbucks right as I got out. I still have the gift card my Mama gave me a couple weeks ago and still haven’t used it. I don’t know why but it is sitting on my bureau and not in my wristlet, I think I need to change that so I can use it. Haha. Once I was home, I hopped on the treadmill to do a little reading while I walked (currently, I am reading Come Matter Here by Hannah Brencher) for 40 minutes. When I was done, I went over to my parent’s to hang out with my Dad, picked up a salad for dinner (just like everyday, people), came home to eat, then was back in the car to head on over to my sister’s house until about 9ish. Yup, you read that right, this girl was NOT in bed at 8pm on a Friday night. Whaaaat! I was having somewhat of a lousy day (well, a lousy week to be honest) and it felt better to not be at home alone in my own thoughts. Ya know what I mean?

Saturday- The morning started early. I didn’t sleep well, after only falling asleep after midnight on Friday night, I woke up at 5am but stayed in bed for another hour. By 6:00 I got my butt up, threw some laundry in, cleaned up the kitchen (I swear, squirrels come in the kitchen at night no matter how much I clean it before going to sleep, I am always cleaning in the morning..anyone else feel this way too?), and got my workout on. First up was 10 minutes of plank variations and then a 45 minute run/ending with an incline walk for the the last 10 minutes. I was one sweaty mess, but I really needed it from the night before from how lousy I felt and how lousy I slept. Anyways, I worked until mid afternoon, then went over to my parent’s house for a little bit,  my sister and nephews were there. I was there until exhaustion hit me, so I got a tea from Starbucks and came back home. I was so tired, I told myself that I was going to lay in bed for a little bit but ended up napping for TWO hours!!! I was shocked. Obviously my body really needed the rest, but that two hour nap didn’t really help me because I woke up feeling really crappy and just plain gross. I took it as a sign that I napped too long, seeing as how I don’t usually nap and then passed out for two hours, my body was probably in shock or something. I picked up a salad in my crappy state (I’m telling you, I really did notttt feel like myself), but then after I ate dinner and drank a bunch of water I started to feel fine. As I ate I caught up on the last episode of Southern Charm. Can we discuss for a second? MANNNNN is Ashley on something? Is she brainwashed or just straight up crazy? She obviously has no class, no heart, and no conscious because if I were her I would be on my knees (crying), begging for these people’s forgiveness for being so hateful. She has some issues. I said a prayer for that girl as I was watching…Lord help her. Once it was finished, I went on over to my sister’s house to hang out with her and the boys for about an hour until exhaustion hit me in the face again and I came home to lay in bed. I don’t know if the nap threw me off or whatever, but I literally just felt like I needed to sleep for a very long time.

Sunday- In the morning (after sleeping very well), I woke up around 6:15, and got a little workout in before getting ready for church. Since feeling so off the day before, I didn’t really want to push my body too much, so I just did a 20 minute cardio workout and then got ready for the day. Better than nothin’, right?! Church was so good, and it reaalllllyyyy made me happy that Michael came with me. We haven’t really had lots of time together, but I really like that we can spend that hour and a half together at church. Key word: TOGETHER. 😉 After church, Michael was off to jujitsu and then to work, so I went to the grocery store with my Dad (missed that!!), and then went over to my sister’s house for a little while to play with the boys. I eventually made my way back home for some lunch and to watch (you guessed it) Hallmark Christmas movies. I whipped up some egg salad rolls for Michael and brought some to my parent’s (mainly to taste test, haha). I came back home to lay on the couch to eventually….NAP….yes people, this girl NAPPED again. I don’t really know what was/is going on. Maybe Michael shared his cold with me and my body is fighting it because I felt really crappy for the rest of the night and was just on the couch watching Hallmark Christmas movies, snuggling with Stella Lou until bedtime.

Today started with a 30 minute full body workout followed by a 25 minute run on the treadmill. I think I am feeling better today, but I still feel like I am fighting something. However, I would rather fight it than have it attack me…you feel me? I have a nail appointment later on this morning and hopefully will be spending some time with Michael tonight. He actually has the day off from work too! Happy dance! 

I’ll be back tomorrow with another Disney post, so stay tuned!! 🙂

Have a great Monday!! Xoxo ♥♥

How was your weekend?! Tell me about it!

  1. I feel like no matter how much I clean, I wake up the morning after and feel like there’s more to do. And a 30 minute workout is definitely better than no workout!! Have a great week 🙂

  2. I am in total agreement about the kitchen NEVER staying clean. I literally feel like I am constantly cleaning it BUT I would rather be cleaning the kitchen than say cleaning the family room or my bedroom. lol.
    I am so glad that you got your workouts in. I know that when I feel lousy a workout generally helps! 🙂

    1. Hahaha right? I am cleaning allllll the time!!! And yes, a workout always helps lifts my spirits up even if I’m crying during it Hahahaha!
