Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for the weekend!!
Here’s what I loved this week.
A Clean Puppy
My dog has recently recovered from a major injury and illness, so during that time she was cooped up in a single room of the house and she became just a little stinky! So I scheduled her a spa day at her vet. A bath and nail trim are not considered a luxury for her (quite the opposite actually), but afterwards she was so soft and smelled so good. I love puppy spa days!
This week has been very busy, which meant little time to go to the gym. So I brought out my “no excuse” workout equipment I keep at home. My favorite exercise DVDs. I can squeeze them in whenever I have time and get a great workout without having the added stress of going to the gym. I can even have a load of laundry going while exercising!
My favorite workout DVDs right now are:
- PiYo Sweat and PiYo Drench (and the names are very appropriate!)
- Total Body Cardio Fix and the Pilates Fix
PiYo videos require no equipment, which is great! the Total Body Cardio Fix does suggest a medium weight (I’ve accumulated a good set of weights over the years) and the Pilates Fix you will definitely want a mat. But with little to no equipment, I can get a great workout morning, noon or night!
A Delicious Dinner Out
Last weekend we had a special dinner out at A Southern Season’s Weathervane Restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. We were all a little hungry, so we ordered a good bit of food. And it was all delicious!
For appetizers we shared a plate of pimento cheese fritters and fried green tomatoes, while I also ordered a cup of summer squash soup. The pimento cheese fritters were amazing! I have an allergy to tomatoes, so I stayed clear of those but they got good reviews from everyone else at the table. And the soup was tasty, with a bit of a kick I wasn’t expecting. It was too spicy for me to finish the whole cup and still have an intact palate to eat the rest of my meal, but I enjoyed it.
Then for the main course, I had a zucchini risotto cake with a roasted red pepper sauce and some grilled chicken strips. Oh my it was so good! I would order this again and again.
The rest of the table enjoyed their meals just as much: a sweet-tea glazed salmon and the catch of the day (wahoo).
We all probably ate a bit too much, but we enjoyed it very much! What a great treat!
