Hope you all had a great weekend! It was another marvelous couple of days, with plenty of sunshine.

Weekly workouts + meal plan

This was an unusual week. I was fighting a cold in the middle of it and exhausted on Thursday and Friday so I took extra time to nap and rest. By yesterday, I was feeling much better. I even surprised myself in a local 5k! But I’ll save that story for tomorrow.

It's a...

I loved reading all your guesses! It was a pretty even number of girl vs boy votes. L and I were with those of you voting boy.
