Okay, I had a pretty awesome weekend, as far as weekends go.
After Jay and I finished the Fearless 5k (click for link), we went over to Kelly‘s house for a BBQ. Her and her husband Sean hosted us, along with Corryn, Amanda, Mel B and other co-workers and friends. It was great to see my blog friends and a nice afternoon of eating and catching up.
Sunday, I slept in, drank coffee and read blogs in bed, and spent some time with my little buddy, Biscuit.
After getting ready for the day, Jay and I took Biscuit to a local dog park, and he ran around and had fun for about an hour. We logged probably 2+ miles of hiking, and enjoyed one last weekend before it snows.
Sorry, fellow Minnesotans. I think the snow is coming – sooner rather than later.
Because he was filthy, Jay and I gave Biscuit a bath when we got home. He hates getting in the water, but once he gets clean, he enjoys himself. His favorite part is what I call “towel time” – when I dry him off and he gets all fluffy.
I swear this whole blog post isn’t about my dog.
After the dog park and the bath, we went to Target. We picked up our usual weekly groceries and happened to come across this beauty in the “fitness” aisle -
We have a foam roller and use it for sore muscles, but I had never seen anything like this. We took a quick inventory in Target – Jay ran it over my back, and I ran it over his – and we bought this massage stick for the low, low price of $14.99.
It was the best $14.99 I’ve ever spent.
This massage stick is amazing. It works deep into muscles and you can use it yourself, or use it on someone else. Jay and I spent a long time working it on eachother’s sore muscles – my hip and his IT band.
To be honest, I love, love, #LOVE this massage stick. Love. I think it has been one of my most favorite purchases and I am so excited about using it before and after running, spinning, Zumba, and yoga. It feels SO GOOD on my muscles and it’s a great reward after a hard workout.
I’m looking forward to a good week – making healthy food choices, staying active, tracking calories, and spending time with family and friends.
Did you have a great weekend?
