I'm closing out the week with a TGIF post! This was a bit of a hectic week as I traveled Sunday through Tuesday for a work conference but all in all it was a great week! And I have today off!
The high of my week was last night as I got dinner before swim class with my friend Courtney, then felt really strong during swim class and capped off the night by getting to see Phil after class.
The low of my week was *crickets* Can't really think of any lows that happened this week, which is of course a good thing!
A book I am reading is Citizens of London for my local book club. It's a non-fiction book about the British-American alliance during WWII. It's pretty fact heavy so I'm learning a lot but progressing through it VERY slowly.
A new recipe I made was this gluten free banana pancake. If you like bananas, I highly recommend this recipe! I didn't have ground flaxseed so skipped that ingredient and it was still great. Also, it's a great way to use up bananas that are too brown to eat. If you make it, make sure you use a small omelette pan - I used a bigger pan so my pancake turned out thin and almost crepe-like; I think it would have been a little better if it was smaller and thicker. Nonetheless, it was a delicious, healthy and easy week night dinner.
For my workouts, I completed runs on Monday and Tuesday, an arm/chest strength training workout on Wednesday, and swim class last night. Tomorrow I am planning to run 10 miles tomorrow and then I'll do a longer bike ride on Sunday.
The best money I spent was on lunch with a friend/former coworker yesterday. The last time I saw this friend she was in the midst of chemo treatments as she had breast cancer - but now she is cancer free! It was great to catch up with her and hear how well she is doing now!
My plans this weekend include grilling tonight and then going to Phil's friend's monthly cocktail hour, running with my club Saturday morning, staying in and making dinner together on Saturday night, and having an aunt date with my nephews on Sunday. I'm hoping it's warm on Sunday so we can go to a pool or water park, but I've got a kid-friendly museum in mind if the weather doesn't cooperate. I also have 3 video chats and 2 phone calls planned over the course of the weekend with far away friends that I haven't talked to in months!
the high of your week? Have you made any new recipes lately?
