This Week In Delicious Food, Fitness, A Musical, And Valentine’s Day

Happy Friday, all!! Gosh, I’m ready for a long weekend. Do you have any fun plans? I’m not sure what we are doing, but we will probably see Black Panther at some point.

This week has been AMAZING for food. I seriously ate something delicious each day! It was full of carbs and I’m not sorry about it. Haha!

Here’s the recap:

MONDAY:

I’ve been taking a class called cycle sculpt on Monday mornings. It is intense and I love it! 35 minutes of spinning and 25 of weights.

Dinner was SO GOOD! I found a recipe on Pinterest for antipasto squares, so I decided to make my own version.

Mine is made with Annie’s organic cresent rolls (as the bottom and top layer), filled with ham, pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and mild jalapenos. The top is brushed with olive oil, parmesan, and Italian seasoning. Baked until golden brown. YUM!!!

After dinner, we watched the Bachelor before bed.

TUESDAY:

I woke up early and hit the gym to do an upper body lifting workout.

After work, I went to my hometown to meet my mom to see The Sound Of Music at a local theater.

Before the show, we met my best friend and her mom for dinner at Uno’s Pizza! I had a salad, and my mom and I shared the very veggie pizza! Okay, not healthy, but they got rid of their delicious wheat bread. We got the thin crust, and it was still super tasty!!!

Dinner was a blast and the musical was AMAZING!!! We had a fun night!

WEDNESDAY: VALENTINE’S DAY

I woke up exhaused because the play the night before ran so late! It was worth it though.

After work, I went to the gym for a 3 mile run. It felt good, despite being tired.

When my husband got home, he told me to go to a separate room while he got my Valentine’s surprise ready.

He got me beautiful flowers, my favorite almond butter, and is treating me to my hair appointment! He also went to Whole Foods and got all of the ingredients to make cheese stuffed ravioli with meat sauce. It was delicious!!!

I was so surprised! He is the best!!! We had such a nice evening together.

THURSDAY:

I decided to go to the gym after work and do a workout on the stair climber. I listened to a podcast which helped pass the time.

Dinner was a Bertolli frozen pasta and shrimp meal. I cooked up some chicken to add to it!

FRIDAY:

I woke up early and went to my favorite workout class: Gluteus maxout! I love leg day!!! I know I’m going to be crazy sore from it tomorrow.

Well, my lunch break is almost over, so time to go.

Have a wonderful weekend!

With love,

Carly

Our Hocking Hills Getaway Weekend

Hello, everyone! How has your weekend been?! Ours has been amazing! We stayed at a cabin in the beautiful Hocking Hills (in Ohio). If you ever get the chance to visit, I highly recommend it. It is full of gorgeous cabins and amazing hiking. Not to mention an adorable winery. Here is my recap of our trip!

FRIDAY:

After work, my husband and I packed up, then hit Kroger for food and firewood. We had about an hour drive to get to our place. The cabin was absolutely perfect! It was so cozy and had a fire place, hot tub, grill, and beautiful views!

The first thing we did was unpack and look around. Soon after, I made a drink and sat in the hot tub while my husband cooked dinner.

Grilled chicken, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and a salad kit! Yum!!

After dinner, we sat in the hot tub until we were tired and went to bed.

SATURDAY:

I woke up and made a pot of coffee and waffles for breakfast.

After breakfast, we enjoyed the stunning views from the back deck.

We played board games in front of the fire for a while and had so much fun.

I was on a losing streak all weekend haha.

I went for a 20 minute run before having a quick lunch in the cabin.

After lunch, we set off to go hiking! We went on two different trails. Our weather was nice and sunny. The trails were full of beautiful ice formations.

Once we finished our hikes, we came back to the cabin and made a snowman. Cute, right?!

When we were finished outside, we had some snacks and watched a movie by the fire.

Meat and cheese plate, plus smores! Yum!!!! Hiking made us super hungry.

I like my marshmallows burnt haha!! The other one had a banana on it. So good!

Once our movie finished, we had some drinks and made dinner! Salmon, shrimp, and rice!

After dinner, we sat in the hot tub until we were too hot. Then we played more board games until bed. What a fun day!!

SUNDAY:

I woke up early and made a pot of coffee and read until my husband woke up. We sat in the hot tub one last time!

We cleaned the cabin before heading home.

Now we are relaxing with our kitties! I missed them. I need to go to the store, but that can wait a little longer!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your day!

With love,

Carly
