Food, Sun, Best Friend & A Celebrity = Great Weekend

Is the title of my post not extremely obnoxious? I never claimed to be creative, ya’ll. I’m so sorry with how MIA I have been lately but I am hoping for a very positive shift in a big area of my life where I will be a whole lot less stressed, and therefore have the energy to do anything other than just drop into bed fully clothed and fall asleep at 8:30 PM. That has been happening almost every night for the last few weeks. Long story short: I miss writing! So I apologize for the abundance of pictures coming your way, but last weekend was nothing short of amazing so I want to share 🙂

First off- the amazing weather that we’ve had for not even a full week yet. I celebrated one day last week by wearing my new J Crew shorts that I scored for $22 through their factory website, and these great gladiator sandals from Forever 21. Be proud of my artistic angle. This was the same week that it also snowed. WTF.

I also need to spread this PSA and say that if you hate low-rise jeans and don’t wear anything other than workout clothes because of it, try Express jeans. They have the perfect amount of stretch that let you breathe but don’t make you look like you are wearing denim leggings or “jeggings”- that word alone terrifies me. The anchor printed shirt is also from Express and I have been living in it.

Okay, not to food. John and I had a little Friday night date at 5 Napkin Burger and it ended in a huge dessert that we actually could both eat. Waffles, ice cream, raspberry sorbet and whipped cream. I ate half of the waffles and all of the sorbet while trying to not eat the whipped cream but of course I did.

Saturday morning I taught Spin then enjoyed the absolutely gorgeous day with Brenda. We walked around all day (probably close to 6 miles) and carbloaded. We got froyo, then lunch (omelettes and french fries, that’s how we rollll) and while we were sitting at the diner Brenda saw Elijah from Girls walk by to the deli next door and pick out flowers. We hadn’t paid yet so we rushed to the counter to pay while I stalked the front so as to not let him get away. When he exited the deli, I bolted at him like a complete freak and literally scared him. He was physically trying to get away from me when I approached him yelling “OMG YOU’RE THAT GUY FROM GIRLS!!” because I could not remember his characters name for the life of me. He laughed, still trying to walk away, while I asked him for a picture and admitted that Brenda and I had been stalking him. I literally screamed into the entrance of the diner “BRENDAAAAAA!!!” and she came running out. It resulted in a very awkward/terrible selfie that Brenda made me crop her out of, but I left her cheek in it.

It’s been awhile since I saw a celeb so I was pretty stoked. Looooove my NYC!

We decided to actually be fun for once and went out with my co-workers for a drink, and then of course landed at Lombardi’s since we were in SoHo and hadn’t eaten dinner yet. Awesome friends, awesome pizza, awesome way to end a carbload.

After a late night out, waking up early to run and teach wasn’t easy but it ended up feeling so great. I dressed like an easter egg for our easter run of 7 miles through the park.

Such a dork. Followed by teaching THE BEST spin class I have taught so far. The energy was incredible, everyone was working hard, having so much fun and singing along. We all sweat some serious buckets and I’m still riding that high days later. Have I mentioned how much I love teaching?! 🙂

How was your Easter weekend?

    1. The weather has been so great! If it would warm up just a little more in the mornings/evenings it would be perfect. Not looking forward to scorching summer heat that will hit us in the next few weeks, im sure!!

    1. It’s so old, I got it at Kohl’s almost 4 years ago! I would suggest looking at Tj Maxx/Marshall’s- they tend to have a good selection of (faux) leather jackets!

  1. I LOVE that you saw Elijah! I love that show!! And love your Easter running outfit, so cute!! Can’t wait to join you girls for long run + spin!

    1. He looks exactly the same in person!! I can’t wait to have you with us tooooo! 🙂 🙂

  2. You’re rockin’ that pink necklace! LOVE IT! Over the past three months, your blog has inspired me to get fit again! Thank you so much for the inspiration! You’re doing the world a great service by writing your blog. You never know how many people you could be inspiring each day with your message, so keep doing what you’re doing! 😀

    1. That was the sweetest comment ever! Thank you so much, you made my day 🙂 I am so happy that I inspired you!! And the necklace was only $6 at Forever 21! 🙂

  3. How massive is that pizza?? As an aussie who has never seen one that big…I am so jealous!!!! I also agree, yu inspire me to believe that having a healthy lifestyle means you can have cake, and eat it too!!!!

    1. You are so sweet! Thats totally how you have to approach a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain it! I think the angle of the pizza makes it look like the slices are way bigger than they really are, but a large pie here is about 18″ big! Pretty big, but super thin and made with really good ingredients- olive oil, bufala mozzerella, fresh tomato sauce and basil!

  4. Love your blog! You’re very inspirational! Would love to take one of your spin classes! But I’m in NJ.
