Weekend Round Up-World Cup Finals

Happy Monday, all! How was your weekend?! I hope great. Mine was full of fast cars, little sleep, and attempting to stay healthy. 

FRIDAY

After work, I came home and packed for our 8 hour trek to Maryland for the racing World Cup Finals. For dinner, we stopped at Arby’s and I had their market fresh sandwich and a side salad. 

Pretty tasty for fast food! You can pretty much find healthy choices at fast food joints these days. 

We made it to the hotel around 230 am and both slept like rocks. 

SATURDAY 

We woke up around 9 and grabbed a quick breakfast at the hotel before heading to the track. Of course we stopped for Starbucks on the way!! 

Once we got to the track, we met up with my husband’s shop crew. His boss qualified for Sunday finals which was super exciting. We also saw a world record get broken. It was insane. 

Bundled up watching the race!


The car below is an Acura NSX.

It started raining around 6, so we decided to get going and grab dinner to take back to the hotel. 

Chick-fil-a is a great option for healthier fast food. I had a grilled chicken wrap and a super food side salad. YUM! 


SUNDAY

Sunday was the main event! I woke up early and got a quick 30 min hiit workout in on the treadmill at the hotel. 

Not a bad little workout room.

After grabbing Starbucks, we made it to the track around 9 and it was already packed! 

My husband and his crew got their boss’ car all ready for the day. We did a lot of waiting for the track to get prepped and dried from all of the rain the night before. 

Finally, the race began. My husband’s boss made it to the semi finals, which is amazing since he was competing with some crazy fast racers! 

We were able to stand at the start to watch his boss race. What a rush! So proud of this crew!!

The race lasted until 1 am. We packed snacks and warm clothes. We had a lot of fun hanging out and watching all of the racing! 

A shop friend brought their puppy and I couldn’t get enough!! 

Once we finally got back to the hotel, we both crashed hard. 

MONDAY

This morning, I woke up around 8 and did a quick lifting session in the hotel gym. 

We packed up, grabbed Starbucks and food, and hit the road. We have about 6 hours left as I write this. 

Now I’m off to keep the hubs company! Have a great week!!

With love,

Carly

Weekend Wrap-up  (Food, Fast Cars, And A Little Sickness)

Happy Monday, all! I have enjoyed having an extra long weekend due to Labor Day. It has been a fun, productive, and relaxing weekend  (minus getting my first cold of the season). 

SATURDAY:

I slept in longer than usual Saturday morning due to a cold and just plain feeling exhausted. It was gross and rainy outside so I drank coffee under my heated blanket in front of my fire place for a while.

After some relaxing, I felt good enough for a treadmill workout at my gym. I decided to get one of my favorite smoothies from the gym cafe after my run. 

Cocoa matcha smoothie with almond milk.

After the gym, my husband and I went to his shop so he could change my oil and work on his car. 

The evening was spent having an at home date night. We tried a new spot for dinner called Poke Bros. They have build your own bowls and are known for their fish. 

My bowl had brown rice, chicken  (I should have gotten fish), carrots, avacado, ginger, edamame, toasted coconut, and 2 different sauces. Very tasty!

After dinner, we watched the new Baywatch. We thought it was hilarious!!

SUNDAY:

 We spent the day at the race track for an event called Import Faceoff. The track was having issues which made for a long day, but the weather was beautiful and I always enjoy watching my husband race!

Hanging out in between races.


My husband! 

After the race we went out to dinner at one of our go to places. I got grilled Cajun chicken fingers and a salad.

MONDAY:

I woke up with my sinuses feeling pretty swollen. I slept nearly 10 hours which I never do. I took a bath with essential oils and epsom salts, took some meds, and did a short yoga video. That helped a lot and I got the energy to go outside for a short run. 

Once I got back, my husband and I tagged teamed house work, yard work, and grocery shopping. 

Dinner was turkey burgers and plantain cooked in coconut oil. 

I could literally eat it every day. 

Now we are just relaxing until our show comes on. 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! 

With love, 

Carly
