Scott left for a hunting trip on Friday night.  I consoled myself with pink moscato and chocolate chips.

Saturday morning, I woke up with a sore throat.  Perfect beginning to a vacation from school, right?  Sure.

I went to 90 minutes of TurboKick.  Well, 60-ish.  My throat was really bugging me, so I left early.  Strength-training is something I can do anytime, but I cannot do cardio when I don't feel well.  Can you?
I think this picture shows my non-enthusiasm pretty well.

I also did some pretty extensive menu planning and thought about a trip to the grocery store...and then took a nap instead.  I'm pretty sure I slept most of Saturday, actually.

Scott has asked one of his friends to stay with us for the next few days.  This guy was staying in temporary lodging on base, as he just got to Alaska, but they kick you out after so many days, and won't let you back in until x number of days is up.  (The military is wonderful like that.)

Scott told him about my blog and now he expects food, a lot of food, all the time.

Luckily, I'm on spring break, so I'll take on the challenge and try some new stuff, as well as the tried and true recipes we love.

I finished Saturday off with the BEST ICE CREAM EVER.  That is not a compliment I give out lightly.

I slept in on Sunday, did my grocery shopping, and then some baking...all while re-watching this season of The Walking Dead.

I have a pretty ambitious two-a-day workout schedule set for the week.  I'll have to recap how that goes.  They're all fitness classes, of course.  I rarely work out well enough to break a sweat if left to my own devices.

That's why I don't run on treadmills.

I really (truly) hope your weekend was more exciting than mine :)

Linking up to Mingle Monday, This Weekend I..., YOLO Monday, and Weekend Shenanigans


  1. that video is really funny - i watched it for awhile :) i'm always nervous about that happening to me on a treadmill! yeah for spring break!!!

  2. I hope you're feeling better! Looooving the pink moscato, especially out of a mason jar :) Mike tells people all the time about my recipes/blog so I am always expected to come up with these creations when we go places haha. Enjoy Spring Break!!

  3. Pink Moscato is SO DELICIOUS!!

    Sorry you started off your spring break not feeling well. Hope you feel better soon. Happy break!

  4. I've had dreadmill incidents. No more for me.

    I hope you feel better!

  5. Please... your weekend had me at moscato and chocolate chips!

  6. These are the times we need to live when your husband goes out of town, we can drink moscato and watch tv shows.

    I digress.

    I have watched that gif at least 20 times and I can't figure out how on earth she managed to throw herself off the back of the treadmill...

    And no. I can't do cardio when I'm sick, either. There is no such thing as sweating out the sickness for me. It makes me worse. Every time.

  7. I hope you're feeling better so you can enjoy your time off! I can't workout when I don't feel well, I'm impressed you managed an hour of cardio!

  8. Hello from mingle monday! Your newest follower!


  9. I agree with you about doing cardio when you're sick, it is the worst feeling ever!

  10. Wine and chocolate because the man's gone. My idea of a good time. ;-)

  11. Aw, I'm sorry you're sick!!!! BOO!

    Tillamook is the best for EVERYTHING. LOVE it.

  12. I seriously just watched that video more times than I probably should have! Haha! That poor girl!!

  13. Mmm, moscato. I just saw red moscato at Target today, have you ever had? I haven't but am curious and think I need to try ASAP.

  14. I love sleep. What a lovely Saturday. Scott & I slept most of Sunday. This spring forward crap really kicks my ass! lol

  15. My spring break doesn't start until next Friday. And I too, suck at working out solo. Group fitness classes is where its at! :)

  16. I'm still confused as to why everyone not in California is on spring break and we have a full month until break.
    Weirdly enough, I workout the best when I'm not feeling well! It clears my head and I don't feel as sluggish and gross.
    If you ever want to try something new, go to and do 4 of her videos with some cardio before. You will actually want to die. Except I'd turn down the volume, because this girl is so chipper that you'll start to hate her. I did lower body today and I couldn't bend over to pick up my backpack after.
    Hope you feel better!
