Weekly Roundup: Mar 8th

This week seemed to be extra busy and extra chaotic for me. I started out the week exhausted and never regained my footing with quality sleep. My Fitbit has been telling me I'm averaging 6.5 hours or less of real sleep - ugh! Despite that, I actually managed to eat good meals in the evenings and had leftovers a few days for lunch. A true sign of a chaotic week was this at my desk on Thursday afternoon...

I rarely run down to the food court in the hospital for lunch for two reasons: 1) the options are crappy and 2) I don't like spending money on lunch unless it's a good lunch out!

It's been a fantastic weekend so far - just the right balance of productive and fun! I was able to knock out my car state inspection (never one of my favorite tasks) and enjoy a movie and dinner out. If you haven't seen it already, go see MacFarland, USA. It was fantastic and totally motivating!

What was the highlight of your weekend?


  1. I agree with you on eating out. I pretty much never eat fast food or fast casual chains for that reason. I budget for a few meals out a week and want to make the most out of them (I usually eat at Earth Fare which is like Whole Foods, healthy grocery store). But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, at least Subway is relatively healthy... I haven't eaten it in awhile and I used to eat it every day for lunch in college!

    Looks like both of you had a great week of workouts. McFarland USA is a wonderful movie, great to watch before a race!

  2. What hip exercises does Christine do?

  3. My weekend includes not leaving the house! After being in Florida a couple weeks ago, and then a busy weekend when we got back, I just wanted to be at home and accomplish some smaller tasks. Plus feeling a bit exhausted and on the verge of coming down with someting, further enforced the stay home idea! Honestly, that sandwich looks good, I hope it was! I'm trying to do better at not getting lunch out, last week I did good at that! Nice workouts this week! I bow down to you! ;)

  4. I have not seen Macfarland USA, but I did finally see the Hunger Games Mocking Jay part 1. I listened to the audio book on the way to Florida last year but of course fell asleep so I thought watching the movie was in order since I seen all the previous ones. I hope the Part 2 movie is better because I was not impressed with this one. -M

  5. Loved the movie. My highlight was leaving the cold northeast.
