Weekend Review

Hello Monday, is it Friday yet?

As I mentioned last week, I wasn't going to be juicing over the weekend, but I'll start up again this week because I discovered that money grows from banana plants!

I don't know if banana plants grow in Minnesota, but I'm going to find out!

I dog sat at my parents all weekend, and it was just the weekend I needed. There was free Showtime, so I cuddled on the couch with Miley and got caught up with Dexter by watching about 15 episodes in a day and a half!

I also watched The Help and 50/50. Have you seen either of those movies? I thought they were both really good.

Do you have a dog? Does your dog stomp it's little paws at you? Does your dog paw at your hand until you pet it? This little lady does. She has one big personality for how little she is. She loves to have her belly rubbed and will sit and stare at you until you look at her, she'll flop on to her back and start to kick her legs in a plea to have you rub her belly. She craves attention and just wants to be with someone. She always has to touch you, even if it's just having a paw on your leg while she's sleeping. I love her to bits and pieces!

I don't think I've ever made guacamole before, but I made some for a 'healthy' snack. I just used some avocados and a guacamole season packet. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. I'm prepping myself for Mexico, which is exactly two months from today! 

So as you can see I was a complete and total bum. I did however, get myself up early on Sunday for a gym sesh, and hit the elliptical for 25 min. before an hour spin class. That spin class totally kicked my butt because it was almost all hills, but I loved it! I'm going to try and do spin three times a week.

Last Thursday and Friday it was so nice and warm here, like high 30's. My office looks out to a building that flashes the time and the temp, and it's currently -2. I thought my face was going to freeze off on my walk to the buss stop. Mexico can't come soon enough, and if those high 30's want to make another come back, I promise I won't complain!

I hope you are staying warm wherever you are!


  1. Hah! Love the inconspicuous spin class photo ;-) I LOVE spin classes and go to them every Tuesday/Thursday morning. It's a nice way to mix up my workouts.

    Avocados are THE BEST!!

    Our black lab, Roxy (who lives down in Kansas with my parents) does a funny thing where she puts her paw up on the couch and won't hop up until you tell her to. Her paw is almost like a question whether she may come up or not ;-)

    1. Aren't dogs the best?! I love how each one has its own personality!

  2. Love New Glarus as a Wisconsin native, so good! :) My dog Matilda pats my with her paw until I give her attention. So cute.

    1. Our cabin is in WI so we always make sure to pick up some New Glarus. Have you tried the Raspberry Tart? It's so good!
