Another weekend gone by

Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Mine was busy and productive. I ate well, slept well, got to exercise, had a date with my husband and did a lot of things around the house. Here’s a quick recap :


Fitness : We had nice weather and I wanted to be outside.

  • Saturday : boy, was I motivated ! I ran 8K then went to the gym and lifted some weights. Running behind Parisian firemen is motivating.
  • Sunday : 30 minute Jillian Michaels DVD + one hour power walk

Food : my husband did most of the cooking

We had lamb with potatoes and broccoli, monkfish with broccoli and veggies, cheese.

Date night : my husband is part of a scuba diving club and Saturday was their annual get together. We first went bowling. We like to bowl, but do not do it often and are not that good.  A guy we were playing with broke 200 ! Impressive.

We then went out to dinner at a Guingette, an “Open air Dance Hall”, along the Marne River in the Paris suburb. It was a really fun experience and I will write a full post on it.

Van Gogh painted a picture back in 1886 titled  “Guingette”.

And also went to Ikea because I wanted to replace the cushion on our chair. I found exactly what I wanted. I don’t go often because I go for one thing and come out with 10 additional items ! To go with my new white plates, I also bought bowls and mugs. I love the color. I also got some baskets and miscellaneous kitchen things.

    I am terrible at bowling but it is a lot of fun! Sometimes I just don’t mind being bad! Looks like you had a great weekend!

    You were motivated! Holy workouts! Yes, being behind fireman would be quite motivating for me! 😉
    Yay for getting the quilt up! Must feel good.
