Where to begin?
Friday was a LONG day, but a FUN-FILLED day!
I had the Christmas Cookie Exchange/Luncheon during the day (got rid of all those cookies I had made, but brought home with me just as many only of all different kinds. TOO MANY COOKIES!) and the Y Staff Christmas party Friday evening. Exercise and work fell between those festivities.
The Luncheon was very fun. We had soup & salad for lunch. The soup was a homemade tortellini soup – likely NOT healthy in any way. I could not turn it down & I am now thankful I ended up enjoying it. It was delicious! The salad was romaine with almonds, mandarin oranges, and an olive-oil based dressing. Mmm mmm good! (I didn’t snap any food pics of my meal because my phone was in the other room, but I so wanted to.) I also sampled bits of the different cookies others had brought to share. By the time I left, my tummy was full.
The Y Staff Christmas party turned out to be a blast! We had tasty food to munch on, a little wine (ok, I may have had a bit more than a little…) and a lot of laughs! We spent the evening playing a game I took along with me:
The Game of Things!!
If you need a great game to play at a holiday get-together with friends or family, this is it. It is one of my favorites. A lady at the party ended up borrowing mine to use at a party she is hosting next week! So obviously, the game was a hit.
I woke up about 5:30 Saturday morning (the alarm sounded WAY earlier than I would have liked) to hit the road to Louisville for TRX Suspension Training. It was a full day of workouts & learning how to instruct/design a TRX group class.
TRX Manual ~ this will be a LIFESAVER as I continue learning “the ropes.”
I LOVED the training course. The trainer who instructed us for the day was a definite inspiration. She kicked our a#%, but at the same time did an excellent job of teaching our group.
I was beat by the time I got back to the Y from training. I ran through SUBWAY to grab a sub (turkey, the usual) for dinner since I had ZERO energy left to make a meal. I then pit-stopped to see a couple friends before heading home.
I ended up staying longer than expected. By the end of the visit, my nails had been painted & I had been fully educated on how to utilize my newly downloaded SNAPCHAT app! (Yes, I am just entering into the awesome world of Snap-chat & I am extremely excited about it. Better late than never.)
Pretty! ~ I even got a ‘party’ nail on each ring-finger nail (GLITTERY!!)
Snap-Chat!! ~ don’t have it? get it!
I finally rolled home around 11 last night & I believe I was sleeping before I even laid down in my bed. Sleep…finally!
Well, that is my weekend in a nutshell. I will fill you in on my Sunday Funday in my next blog post.
Until then ~
