Ufda, this past week was another busy one. I feel like I've got so many plates spinning these days... Life is good so I can't complain but I would love a week with fewer plans... Last year I made one week in November a "plan free week" and I am thinking about trying to do that again so I can reset my battery! Here's how my week shaped up!
The high of my week was spending time with two of my college friends last night. They both have 2 kids and our schedules are all so busy so I'm always grateful when we can find a night when we are all free!
The low of my week was a poor night of sleep on Sunday night. I'm making changes suggested by the sleep doctor I saw in August and my sleep is improving but I had a rough night on Sunday as I was up from 12:30-3 so only got about 4.5 hours of sleep. Womp womp.
A book I am reading is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which is the book for my local book club. I'm looking forward to discussing it with the girls next week. It's being made into a movie so when it is released, our club is planning to go to the movie together!
For my workouts, I ran with my club on Monday and Wednesday and strength trained on Tuesday and Thursday. Today I will rest, tomorrow I will run 16 miles and on Sunday I will bike 32 miles when I do the Minneapolis Bike Tour!
The best money I spent was on plane tickets for our Boston trip and our trip to NJ for my friend Alli's wedding! On Monday I noticed the price for the Boston trip had dropped from $390 to $307 so we decided to buy. Later that day, Phil saw that it had dropped to $217! I called Priceline and luckily they agreed to match the price! Plus our tickets to Philadelphia for Alli's wedding were only $197 so we really got lucky with airfare this week.
My plans this weekend include going to dinner with Phil and another couple and their baby tonight. Tomorrow I will run with my club and then that evening I am doing a trial run of a recipe for Julia Child night which Phil will help me eat. On Sunday I'm doing the Minneapolis Bike Tour in the morning, which is an annual event put on by our Parks and Rec Board, and later that day I fly to Chicago for a quick business trip. I don't have any plans for Saturday afternoon which I am very happy about!
What was the high of your week? What was the best money you spent this week?
