Feels Like Fall

Happy Saturday! I hope you having something fun planned for the day. Thank you for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

Friday started off with another scrambled egg and smoothie for breakfast! I’m really loving waking up early to enjoy a more filling breakfast and to watch the news. If you or any loved ones are down in Texas, I hope you are all safe for Hurricane Harvey!
Luckily, the afternoon at work went by fast. For me, Friday afternoons seems to take forever! When I got home, I put on some tv and did squats, lunges, push up and in out crunches. I did each exercise 10 times and just rotated between them while the tv played for about 20 minutes. Watching tv made the workout go faster and I felt like it really worked my muscles. Afterwards I ate a peach and read on the couch for a bit.

Alex and I started to get hungry so I made a fan favorite dinner – sausage and broccoli pasta. The past few days (and going through next week too!) have temperatures in the 70s and I’m loving it! Granted, I’m not ready for summer to end but it has been not to not leave work/the apartment and immediately start to sweat.

One of our friends came over for a beer (seltzer for me and an O’Doul’s for Alex). We are still going strong on not having alcohol during our 30 day challenge. We’re almost done with it and it’s not as hard as it may seem.


To finish off the night I finished reading “All the Light We Cannot See”. I loved it! I thoughts the end was going to be different but I enjoyed the ending. While watching tv I wanted something sweet so I grabbed a Hershey kiss. It hit the spot!

Question of the day: Are the temperatures fall like near you?

  1. Sounds like a solid Friday! It’s feeling like fall in Boston this morning and I’m loving it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you noticed any changes in your diet/mood/etc. through your 30-day no alcohol challenge? I’m interested in doing one but haven’t gotten myself to start… I love wine a little too much haha.

    Have a great Saturday, girl!


    1. In terms of my mood, I’ve noticed I’ve been less irritable. I will say I don’t know if that has to do with no alcohol or my period not being that bad (sorry if that’s tmi!). In terms of eating, I’ve noticed I get hungry at night but not more than usual. I didn’t drink that much to begin with, maybe 3 times a week so it’s not a huge change for me. I’ve been thinking of having Alex write how he felt since he would have a beer or two every day before we did this. Let me know if you would be interested!

      But yes, wine is a must. I always have a bottle or two on hand ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks Marina! Enjoy your Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It sounds like you had a great Friday! I like the idea of working out in front of the tv! I wish I could do that but our pets would walk on top of me the whole time, haha. I keep hearing really great reviews for “All The Light We Cannot See” and have yet to read it. I think I need to check it out! Is it sad?!


    1. It was a pretty good Friday! Watching tv while working out definitely helped take my mind off of what I was doing. I could see how it would be a little hard with three dogs lol. Yes read it! No it’s not sad but if they made it a movie I could see myself tearing up a bit.
