It’s Monday and so that means linking up with Tara for another edition of Weekend Update!
Another Monday link up: Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!
Welcome Marvelous Monday!
Compared to last week, this week was quite memorable and evenful!!!!
-I won 2 giveaways:
I can’t wait to get my goddies :)!!!
-Got invited by our favorite local musician Andres to a live taping and XM Sirus Radio studios in DC for The Rumpus Room AND the kids got to meet Absolutely Mindy from the Absolutely Mindy Show on XM Channel 78-Kids Place Live!
-Won 2 movie premiere tickets to Far from The Madding of the Crowd.
No spoiler alerts here….I have never read the book ( or actually heard of it) so I had no idea what the movie was about outside of the typical premiere blurb (Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.)
-Was offered a free race entry to Zooma Annapolis…..Thanks Cynthia!
-Made 2 successful crock pot meals: I see now how wonderful the crock pot is!!! I am going to keep experimenting.
Seasoned Whole Chicken Garlic and Carrot Chicken Legs
-Got to hear my favorite female DJ (who also is a friend) DJ Miss H.E.R. while celebrating another friend who just earned her Doctorate in Education!
-Took my Children to Work on Take your Child(ren) to work day. They both ‘interviewed’ a few of my co-workers.
My workout week was so-so:
I completed 2 of the 5 planned workouts. I did legs (was sore for 4 days) and ran 3 miles on Thursday.
Workout week plan for this week: Get focused and complete 3 runs, 2 weight training days and a full body tabata workout.
My weekend was also quite full and eventful!! I think I need a weekend to recover from the week and the weekend!!!
Race packet pick up for Ben’s Run on Saturday.
Ben’s Run with the family…Race Re-Cap here.
Quick stop to Road Runner Sports to take advantage of the gently used shoe sale….all shoes were $65. I found another style of Mizunos that I am in love with and can’t wait to try out this week! I could only find one pair in my size :(.
Kiddie’s cooking bday party:
A visit to a teammate’s fire house:
We won 20-0!

I am exhausted from writing this and re-reading all that has happened in the past 7 days!!!
How was your week? Did you met your fitness/health and personal goals? Does anyone else have to look at their pictures to remember what they did?
