The week was a whirlwind. After being in NY for the NYC Marathon I spent some time in Maine with my parents. I left Sunday but not before laughing with my parents while taking selfies.
I arrived back in France early Monday morning and had 3 insane days at work with 12 hour days sitting in meetings, eating meeting food & restaurant food. So come Thursday I was ready to get back to my regular programming.
- Get fresh air
- Get my fitness on
- Eat whole foods
- Get caught up on my sleep
- Connect with my family & relax
Get fresh air : I ran twice, and had nice weather even if it has cooled off quite a bit. There are fewer runners out this time of year.
Get my fitness on : In addition to running Thursday and Friday, I made it to the gym for a killer upper body workout Saturday, and did a leg workout at home Sunday. I felt really proud sporting my NYC marathon tshirt.
Eat whole foods : This meal was amazing. I had marinated salmon in an Asian type sauce, had it with rice, fresh spinach and topped with sesame seeds.
Get caught up on my sleep : I am not affected much by the time difference and jet lag. As I have spent years going back and forth to the US I know how to manage my sleep but as I get older, it is becoming a bit harder. Come the weekend, I felt the need to 1) nap and 2)sleep late on Sunday. 8 a.m. ! This is so late for me I felt I missed out on half my day.
Connect with family & relax : We didn’t have much planned this weekend, so I read a bit, cleaned & decluttered (which is how I relax), and watched a bunch of movies & series. It was cold and rainy over the weekend, so I didn’t much want to be outside.
Wishing you all safe travels for Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your friends and family. We don’t have Thanksgiving off (it is a US holiday) but will be celebrating, as we are invited by an American friend every year.
A big shout out to Kim @ Runs on the fly today on her marathon !
That is a wrap !
Are you traveling for Thanksgiving ?
Do you like cleaning & decluttering ?
Has it cooled off in your neck of the woods ?
