Fitness & family

Good morning ! How has your weekend been ? Its Sunday morning here, and so far so good ! I didn’t get a chance to post much this week besides Friday Five link up because I was out three evenings. So here’s to looking back at the week :


Family : It was my birthday and my daughter’s birthday last weekend, so we celebrated with my mother in law. We tried a new restaurant Le Chalet des Iles. It is in the park where I run and we had never tried it. We found it a bit pricy, but the food was fantastic. I would recommend going in the summer where you can sit outside.

We ate dessert at home however. It was actually a good idea. It saved us money at the restaurant (I am far from cheap, but still !) and we got to take our time with presents, dessert & coffee. My mother in law made the dessert, it is called the Queen of Saba.

I was out Tuesday for PTA, Thursday for a work party and Friday for a dinner so the week flew.

I spent a wonderful Saturday morning with my daughter. We went into Paris to run some errands so stopped at Starbucks. Everyone is talking about the New Flat White but it has not come to France yet. The barista had NO IDEA ! what I was talking about. So I got my usual tall, skinny cappuccino, chocolate milk for my girl.

Despite the busy week, I got some exercise in. I am pretty satisfied with 3 days minimum and my body definitely likes the variety.

  • Wednesday : stationary bike + weights at the gym
  • Saturday : 6,6 km run
  • Sunday : 50 minutes swimming laps at the pool

      As I grow older, my body definitely prefers variety of workouts. I find it keeps injury away.

    I’ve actually heard of that dessert! It looks lovely! Yes, flat white is all the rage here in the states.

      I will just have to wait to come to the US to try the flat white.
