Date Night

Happy Sunday! I’m excited to hang out at home and go to the grocery store. I feel so adult saying I’m excited to go grocery shopping haha. Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚


After getting a little bit of a slow start (which means I was dressed at 9 am not 7 am lol), I headed to Target with Alex to pick up a few things. We wanted to bring some granola bars and Dramamine with us on the boat. Alex had gotten seasick once when he was about 6 or 7 so his whole family was making me nervous he was going to be sick the entire time we were on the boat. I’m probably girlfriend of the year for planning a monthly date that involves a boat if he got sea sick right?!


When we got home it was time for my run! I really need to start figuring out ways to run earlier since it was hot out in the sun. I used to be able to run on an empty stomach but now it makes me feel awful. The run felt good and was my longest run to date with myย coach.ย It felt good and I’m excited to get back into longer runs again.

Once I was showered and ready for date night it was time for lunch. Since the fishing trip was in the middle of dinner time, I knew it would be smart to eat lunch later and slightly bigger than normal. So being the mature 23 and 22 year olds that Alex and I are, we made two boxes of Kraft mac and cheese. Yes I’m talking the blue box from childhood. I haven’t had it in a while (we like to keep a box on hand just in case) and it was good!

I read a little bit before we left. Since I finishedย Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule, I started a young adult book by Daniel Handler calledย Why We Broke Up. I didn’t realize it was a young adult novel until I was looking it up in the library’s catalogue to see if they had it. It’s definitely a different type of novel since there are pictures and short chapters (about 10 pages max) but it’s a quick read which I like for summer books.

Finally it was time to go on our date! We had to drive about an hour to get to the marina where the boat was but it was easy and there wasn’t traffic until we got close to the marina. It was such a fun outing and we both caught fish! I will be sure to share more about our experience tomorrow (we didn’t get home until late and were both tired) so check back again then!

We ended up getting takeout from a local spot close to home for dinner since everywhere near the shore was packed by the time we finished. I was falling asleep on the couch and I think I fell asleep within a minute of crawling into bed. I hope you all enjoyed your Saturday!


Question of the day: What do you eat in the mornings before a run (or any workout) and how long do you let it digest before working out?

  1. Looks like y’all had a successful fishing trip – that looks so fun! My husband and I really need to start planning more date nights – it feels like we haven’t had a night to ourselves in ages.

    I normally eat something super light (like a granola bar, pb on toast, half a banana with pb, some crackers) before a run in the morning. I eat maybe 20-30 min before a run and that works best for me. If I’m only doing a short run, I can get by without eating anything! It’s different for everyone – you really have to play around with what works best for you ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a great day!


    1. It was so fun! You totally should start doing date nights, they don’t have to be fancy outings either! Our first one was literally just takeout and a movie but we left our phones in a different room so there were no distractions ๐Ÿ™‚

      Pb on toast or a granola bar are definitely things I should try before morning runs! I’m so picky with food that I get nervous trying new things before working out haha but you’re right, I’ll just have to play around with it. Have a wonderful day Erinn!
