Happy Friday to YOU!

Happy Friday kids! We made it…we made it! How manyย of you are working today? I am…but not much. Just a few sessions this morning and then I do have PT at noon. But then hello weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ And note to self: do not schedule errands after PT…remember Wednesday?

Workout this morning was good…how about 8 miles and a SMILE! Or even better how about 8 miles at 8:32/pace and a BIGGER SMILE! I feel like I am slowly but surely getting back to where I was. I have learned the importance of ice and foam rolling. Both have become constant companions in my life! ๐Ÿ™‚

What are you doing to celebrate the 4th? Here is a rundown of my plans for the next few days. I am so excited:

  • Tonight = NO PLANS! Keith and I are going to be big chill out bums and enjoy the fact that Direct TV has given us Showtime free for one month! (Yes…we’re exciting. Please try to control your jealousy)
  • Saturday my dad is throwing a birthday party for my grandpa. He is 89 and one of the healthiest human beings alive. He regularlyย plays racquetball with people 30 years younger than he…I hope I am as healthy when I am pushing 90.
  • Sunday (JULYย 4TH) Keith and I are having Jeff (my PT) and his wife and son over for a BBQ. We really like Jeff a lot and have really gotten to know him on a social level. So this will be fun. Stayed tuned because I will have a semi-big announcement regarding Jeff on Monday! (such a tease I am!) And no I am not quitting PT anytime soon, so that isn’t it! ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Monday (technically not the weekend I know…but lots of people have off) Hilary and I are going to go see Eclipse! I CAN NOT WAIT!

I have a great couple of days lined up! Do you? Tell me what your weekend entails!

Random question. But yesterday while reading Fit At Heart, Jennifer asked how we like our eggs. I started thinking that honestly I only like my eggs 1 of 2 ways: either over-easy or hard-boiled. Both are the extreme form of the cooking method. One ย is one step up from raw while the other is totally cooked 100% completely through. And yet I don’t really like eggs cooked anywhere in between.

Do have any foods that you like prepared only to extremes?

  1. I am the same with eggs, I don’t like them in between either!

  2. I’m working today, too- boooo! But hoping and crossing my fingers that I’ll get to head out early… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great weekend- and enjoy the night of relaxation tonight!

  3. Sounds like a fab weekend!
    Tonight, Jay & I are headed on a mini roadtrip up to Lake George, NY to celebrate our 6 month wedding anniversary. ๐Ÿ˜€ Saturday will be some more Lake George, but not sure when we’re coming back?
    Sunday we have 2 picnics to go to, both of which are always a great time.
    Monday, the hubby and I are planning a full day, poolside, hopefully with fruity umbrella drinks ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Enjoy your weekend girl!!

  4. So cool that your grandpa is so healthy at his age – what an accomplishment! We’ll be spending the weekend attending cocktail & dinner parties in D.C. – looking forward to it!

  5. Sounds like a great weekend! Have a blast.

  6. Have a wonderful weekend! I am heading to the beach tomorrow and have a barbeque on Monday. Enjoy!

  7. Sounds like a busy, but fun weekend. I think I’d totally be chilling in my PJ’s on the couch tonight too! Good job with that run. I’m always blown away at your speed.

  8. What a great weekend you have ahead!! Enjoy! Also have a great celebration on Sun. Since it’s a normal weekend for me non US citizen I will work Sat morning and then Pilates training (for me to become instructor) the rest of Sat and Sun. Hope to have time to bike to the nearby lake for a swim on Sun night with my hubs ๐Ÿ™‚

    As for eggs I only eat them scrambeld or in an omelet ( like tortilla espaรฑola yum).

    And now I am out to chek puppies, again, still haven’t found a puppy that I want. Wish me luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    • That’s cool that you are going to be a Pilates instructor! Tell me more about that!

      Oh and goodluck,,,,I hope you find a puppy! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ I work instructing classes at the gym ( and study at the University sports & health) but after my injury I have had to cut down “harder” classes and work giving more mental, soft and dance-based classes. Pilates is really interesting, now that I actually understand it ๐Ÿ™‚ . It is a good way to strenghten core muscels and take care of your spine and posture. The training is 3 months long and I just finished my first one. I so love excersise and I love to learn many different styles and thecniques.

        As for the puppy, I think it could be this one : ) I ‘ll keep you posted!

      • How cool! I have never done Pilates…maybe I need to branch out and try one day!

        Keep me posted on the pup! That would be so exciting!

  9. Sounds like a fun weekend! I’m going to my sister-in-laws where I get to see my two adorable nephews. They wear me out, but they’re so cute.

    As for extremes, I generally like all my foods cooked well done, no exceptions. That’s one extreme, but there’s no food I like undercooked. So, yeah, I’m consistent.

  10. I am pretty much a scrambled eggs gal, nothing slimy for me..haha:)
    My husband and I are driving to Alabama for an annual family reunion to celebrate the 4th!! I think we’re going to the casino on Saturday night, which should be fun! I love me some blackjack, though I rarely actually win money!!!haha
    Happy 4th!!

  11. Somebody’s got their groove back! Your plans sound terrific. Hopefully you celebrate the whole time.

    You’re a Twihard?! Oy, please tell me you at least like the one that doesn’t squint, Edward I believe?

    (go Harry Potter!) lol

  12. Sounds like you have a great weekend lined up! Have a good one, Kelly!

  13. I leave for vacation tomorrow!!! Can’t wait! And I like my eggs scrambled, in omellett form, or over easy.

  14. Your weekend sounds super fun! I love summer BBQs. I’m hoping to find myself near pools and beaches this weekend – with some good grilling nearby!

    Enjoy!

  15. Eggs: Poached! That’s my favorite way (a bit runny on toast or an english muffin or something)

    I like them boiled and sunny side up, too, but am not a scramble, omelet, or egg in taco or miga fan. I eat egg whites scrambled for ease on occasion but always have to have something else with them becuase those alone don’t satisfy my taste buds.

  16. Sounds like a great weekend to me! Can’t wait to hear about Eclipse – apparently it’s the best one yet…I never seen all of the second one though…

    What’s this “Jeff” announcement!! Hah – you are a social girl for sure, making friends with everybody – luv it!

    AND I LOVE EGGS ANY WHICH WAY HAH! – hard boiled, scrambled, microwaved, …love the yolks!

  17. Such a fun lineup! I only like eggs scrambled or in omelets. I think it’s because the yolks freak me out

  18. Sounds like you have an awesome weekend lined up. I have to work today, which totally sucks after having yesterday off.
    Other than a bbq tonight I have no weekend plans at all. Just the way I like it!

  19. i only like tuna very raw..or seared to the bare minimum! i love eggs all ways!

  20. definitely chicken…which i think is pretty obvious, but still. if it’s even a bit undercooked i kind of gag a little…

  21. I’m the same with eggs, but I also like them scrambled. I’ve been eating egg white salad for breakfast all week. It’s fun to mix it up sometimes.

  22. I wish I was more discriminatory with food… i like almost everything. And eggs I will eat any which way!

  23. My beef has to be really rare for me to eat it. I would rather eat something else than overcooked meat.

    • I am so opposite! On the rare occaions that I actually want a steak it has to be well done and charred! Be safe coming to Dallas this weekend!

  24. Sounds like it’s going to be a great weekend!

    I’m hosting a BBQ at my house and then heading to a fireworks show. Can’t wait!

    I’ll eat eggs in any way, shape or form! I love raw fish, but hate meat that isn’t cooked all the way through!

  25. Sounds awesome!

    This weekend I’m going to Maine to run in the LL Bean 10k. I get to race against Joan Benoit Samuelson. I hope that I can beat her since she is twice my age! The Tour de France is also starting… We tend to have tour parties. YAY!

    Happy 4th!

  26. Working today… Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and then my WEEKEND on Wednesday!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ahh the life of a waitress. I’m OK with it though – I love my job!

    So in terms of PLANS other than working, some workin’ out, and possibly BBQ with the team! I have to put in a few hours doing a gardening gig, which for me = paid time to get a tan and play in the dirt. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    IIII TTHINK I might know your announcement. Haha or at least I can make a few good guesses. Glad the running is going well!

  27. Sounds like a fun weekend!!

    Im running a 10K on Sunday. I’m trying to ignore the fact that I haven’t run more than 3 miles in a few months.

  28. My weekend entails working and running around to a 4 day wedding…should be pretty exhausting!

    My eggs need to be 100% cooked or I get grossed out!

  29. I have to work on Monday – boo! But on Saturday I’m going to a party and then out with my friends…so that should be fun anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. I like my eggs scrambled, never raw or close to ick. It icks me out!

    Plans are up in the air right now, but either way, the two options (or third, staying home), isn’t too appealing to me, but…I can’t let my sister ruin my social life/fun/relationship with my boyfriend (she dates his best friend).

    So, I will live vicariously through you! ๐Ÿ˜€ Enjoy your weekend!

  31. hmm for food, if something is going to be or supposed to be hot, it better be HOT, steaming and not warm! i hate when a dish is cold when you order it from a restaurant! same thing goes for coffee I like it HOT HOT HOT

    happy 4th weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. i hope u have TONNES of fun!!! you truly seem to have an amazing lineup ahead! i dont really have many stellar plans but as long as the sun stays out i know it’ll be good ๐Ÿ™‚

    nothing like a great big smile after a run that’ll make anyone proud ๐Ÿ™‚

    xoxo

  33. Your weekend sounds perfect. Im spending some time with my parents in PA!

  34. Have a great 4th of July! We are heading to the beach tomorrow for 2 days!
    My eggs are extreme…..poached (very wet) or hard boiled.

  35. I have those pink sneakers:)

  36. I love eggs cooked all kinds of ways! They are so versatile! Poached is one of my favourites, but fried, scambled, in a frittata, an omelette, a (healthy) cheesecake…yes please!

  37. 8 miles at 8:32 +You’re a ROCKSTAR!!!

    Have fun at the b-day party!!! Family parties are always fun, most of the time..but especially when you’re celebrating 89 years of life!! Go Grandpa!!!

    I LOVE Pink sneakers ๐Ÿ™‚
