As I write this, I am sitting in a hotel room in NJ, in the states for work this week. I took advantage of this business trip to take a couple days off and fly up to Maine to spend some time with my parents. We had a wonderful four days, and I saw lots of friends & family.
So here is a glimpse in photos, into some highlights of my week :
I did some Christmas shopping with my mom. Neither of us like to shop, but a trip to Maine wouldn’t be complete without a stop at LL Bean.
We picked up a Christmas tree and decorated it. I would LOVE to have a real tree, but our apartment in Paris is too dry for it to last long. And you would never find something as full and beautiful as this :
We negotiated the price at 25 dollars. The price of trees was a topic of discussion all weekend….
I went to two parties, and also spent an evening out with my BFF from high school. Gluten free pizza and some drinks and gelato were part of the evening, before crashing by 11 p.m. We are such party animals.
I exercised five days this week, which is good considering international travel and change of routine. I ran in Paris on Monday & Tuesday where the weather continued to be gorgeous.
Wednesday was a long day of travel. There was NO RUNNING in Maine. The weather was so cold, and I am clearly not equipped.
So I did weights, high intensity and full body workouts in my parent’s warm basement. Thursday was legday, Saturday was chest / back / arms & Sunday was legs & Jillian Michael’s ab video. I needed all of that after the Holiday treat indulging I did.
I also had a full body, deep tissue massage. Hurts like x@*!# but feels so good.
Yeah, it was a good week.
And that’s a wrap !
Do you like deep tissue massage ?
How much is a real tree where you live ?
