I love weekends… because they mean coming home on a Friday and vegging while simultaneously browsing Twitter and watching whatever movie is on the W Network.
I love weekends… because I have the option of sleeping in. Although lately my body has decided it likes being sleep deprived, so it wakes me up at 5:30 am, even on weekends. But on the plus side this meant I was able to hit up the gym before we got slammed with a snow storm. I did Fitnessista’s winter shape up week 1 workout, which was tough! I’m not gonna lie, I cheated a lot on this workout… and yet somehow I’m still crazy sore today!
I love weekends… because I have time to do things that I don’t have time to do during the week, like check out new podcasts. While doing the shape up workout, I listened to the first Holistic Health Diary podcast, which is by two ladies from London, Ontario where I used to go to school. Their first podcast is just a Q&A session, but I’m excited to listen to some of the others and learn more about fermenting, refined v. unrefined coconut oil, and other fun stuff like that.
I love weekends… because I get to spend some time in the kitchen cooking for me and the boy. Saturday night I made us my favourite chicken piccata recipe, smashed garlicky potatoes and honey thyme roasted carrots. I was really excited for the potatoes, but they weren’t actually that good… so I remedied that by finishing them off in a pan of butter. They were much better after that.
I love weekends… because I they usually involve some kind of dessert. These Oreo cheesecake bites got a thumbs up from both of us!
I love weekends… because they mean lazy Sunday morning breakfasts like this almond butter and banana French toast sandwich with maple syrup. Yes, it was as good as it looks!
I hate weekends… because they’re never long enough!
Why do you love weekends?
