Woo hoo, it's Friday! While I enjoy my job, I'm always ready to greet Friday with open arms!! Here's how my week shaped up!
The high of my week was getting together with a friend for happy hour last night. We went to a cute spot in my old neighborhood. The weather was nice so we sat outside on the patio. I pretty much had no social plans for the 2 weeks when I was non-weight bearing on crutches so it feels REALLY good to be back to being more social!
The low of my week was nothing really. I feel like a different person now that I can walk without crutches so I don't have much to complain about!
A book I am reading is The Distant Hours by Kate Morton. This is the second book I have read by this author. It took awhile for me to get into it but now I'm really liking it. It's a long one, though, as it's almost 600 pages!
A recipe I made this week is Mini Muffuletta Meatloaves. I left out the cheese since I'm limiting my dairy intake these days and substituted turkey for ground beef to reduce the calories a bit but it was still great with these modifications. In hindsight I should have made some potatoes or rice to go along with it but I tend to focus on the protein and vegetable and forget about the carbs!
For my workouts I did my PT exercises every day and biked on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and I plan to get some time in on the bike on Saturday and Sunday. My list of PT exercises grows each week and I got to add some more challenging things this week like leg presses and side planks (from my elbows/knees as I'm still building strength). I also got to add resistance while biking this week so I feel like I am getting a bit more of a workout. I can't wait until I am cleared to bike outdoors in week 7! I really miss being active outside.
The best money I spent was on wire cages for my tomato plants and materials to build a fence around my garden to keep the pesky rabbits out!
My plans this weekend include going out for dinner with another couple tonight and followed by playing our favorite card game (hand and foot) with them afterwards. On Saturday we are going to a friend's "I do BBQ" to celebrate their recent engagement. On Sunday I'll go to church in the morning and then meet up with a friend and go to a farmer's market. On Sunday afternoon I want to do a deep clean of our house + grocery shop + do laundry! It feels so good to be able to help out with the "adulting" tasks again. This is an ideal kind of weekend for me as it will have a good balance of social plans and time spent being productive!
What was the high of your week?
