Happy Friday & Meal Planning!

Friday means a rest day from running (or any other activity) and sleeping in! Normally I wake up most days by 5am so I look forward to Fridays when I can feel like a regular human being and "sleep in" until 6:30! It is so fantastic when I have time to pick out my clothes, actually dry my hair, and make a breakfast that is fresh (and not 'nuke it in the microwave). With the cold weather lately, Stella hasn't had many walks so she's feeling a little blue. At least she has a ducky to keep her entertained for maybee 3-5 minutes...

Fridays also mean grocery shopping day for me- yay! I'm sure many of you detest grocery shopping, but I seriously LOVE it. I am definitely a nerd and also get really excited when I can plan out my meals for the next week from all my recipe books....Normally I'll get my staples (apples, bananas, coffee creamer, spinach, carrots, eggs, bacon) and then go off my list that I made! Sundays are normally my meal "prep" day, but it's nice to have all the groceries already at home (especially during marathon training times when Saturdays are busy with long runs and recovery (aka lying on the coach like i'm dead and binge-watching Greys Anatomy)).

 This is 100% accurate for me.

No big weekend plans for us since we'll most likely be snowed-in! I am hoping to make it out to a hot yoga class tomorrow morning (but sleeping in may get the best of me instead...) and get in an easy 4 mile run & strength training! I bought some delicious ingredients to make dessert, so thinking that may take up a good portion of our Saturday. It's SO nice to already have my long run done- almost like a free weekend off! How will I fill my time?!?

 Hopefully Stella won't be stuck in the car too much and we can get her outdoors for a bit!

What are your weekend plans?!

Do you do any meal planning or prep?

Long runs on the weekend or week?
