Ugh, It's Monday :(

Had a good weekend. It went by so quickly! Friday night I went and picked up my new bike!! Stephen worked from home so he made dinner (which is the first time he's ever made me dinner that wasn't cereal)!! Being a guy he made turkey sausages, baked beans, and corn on the grill. It was delicious and it was nice to not have to worry about dinner for a change. Friday night we just hung out and watched CSI (we've started getting them on Netflix...we're only on the first season). Saturday morning we got up and ran our errands (grocery store, Target, Trader Joe's, etc.) then picked up Stephen's new bike!! We ran home and ate some quick lunch and then went on our first bike ride!! It was so much fun! We were gone for about 3 hours but when I mapped out our path it was about 10 miles. It was so awesome to just explore the area around where we live and find all these parks and trails we didn't even know existed!! After our bike ride, we went out to eat dinner and had a really good conversation about jobs and grad school (for me). I had a glass of wine before dinner (while waiting for our table) and then we split a bottle of wine...too much wine!! I definitely felt a little sluggish yesterday. Then Sunday we did laundry and cleaned the apartment. We wanted to go for another bike ride but yesterday was cold and gray outside. :( So instead we went to the movie and saw "The Bank Job." It was a pretty good movie. It's based on a true story so that made it even more interesting. Then we watched basketball and got ready for our week. I definitely went over my calories Saturday and Sunday but I'm back on track today and I'm looking forward to my run at lunch. I'm seriously considering doing a half-marathon in the fall plus I put some new music on my MP3 player so I'm excited to rock and run!!

I was at work early this morning (before 7). Since we're leaving on Thursday to go skiing, I feel like I need to make some major progress on some of these projects before I'm gone. Plus I have a dentist appointment this afternoon (yuck!) so I'll need to leave early.

Alrighty, have a great Monday everyone!

Enjoy your bike. I'm wanting to ride my bike to the Y (only 2.5 miles away) but the weather has been a bit effy - looks like rain kind of thing.
