Low Key Weekend

What did YOU do this weekend?  I did a whole lotta nothin’ and I absolutely loved it!  Last week was a busy one, so when I noticed we had no plans on the docket for the weekend, I was excited.  Sometimes low key weekends are just what you need to recharge.  Of course, I still kept up with my active healthy living lifestyle because that’s just what I do, but besides that, it was low key which was marvelous!

Friday night consisted of take-out dinner from The Cheesecake Factory (Luau Salad for me, Bang Bang Chicken & Shrimp for him, Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple cheesecake to share), and then I made my students’ Valentine’s Day cards.  I’m a hippie at heart, so I bought the peace sign box of valentines that come with temporary tattoos.  (How cool, right??)  And being the teacher I am, I also attached a valentine pencil. Heh heh.  My Friday night was SO exciting! 😉


Saturday morning I awoke bright and chipper and headed to my favorite bikram yoga class.  When it was over, the class cleared out pretty quickly, so I ran to the locker room, grabbed my phone, and snuck a couple of photos in the steamy room.


The rest of Saturday was super low key.  I ran a couple of errands, came home (yes, I showered), and relaxed with the hubby.  We ordered take out again which is very rare for us, but we had gift cards to be used.  This time we went with Charlie Gitto’s where I ordered the Chicken Nunzio (chicken topped with crab!) and Jonny ordered the Rigatoni With Sausage (awesome sauce for dipping!).  After paying for dinner, Jonny noticed there was just a few dollars left on our gift card, so he spent the remainder on Cookies and Cream gelato.


I was very happy.  There was a lot of “Mmm” and “This is so good!” going on.  Real gelato, baby, can’t beat it!  Saturday night was met with another early bedtime which was just fine with us.  After a good night’s sleep, I woke early and headed to another awesome bikram yoga class.

My body’s not perfect, but I love it anyway.

Starting my day with yoga was absolutely perfect.  The team I coach was supposed to have our first soccer game yesterday, but it ended up getting rained out.  Instead, I grocery shopped, caught up on laundry, worked on report cards, did lots of meal prep, and ate a delicious dinner with the in-laws.  Oh, and finished the weekend with a tasty bowl of fro yo!  3 desserts in 3 days?  Yes!  A marvelous low key weekend, indeed!

Do you workout during low key weekends?  What was marvelous about your weekend?

    • It scared me at first, too. You just have to get through your next class so you know what to expect next time! (All classes are the same and follow the same sequence which I have found very helpful!)

  2. Your cheesecake, gelato, and fro yo are making me starving. Your yoga pictures are awesome 🙂 I have really gotten off track with my practice and I need to get back into it. Have an awesome day!

  3. We had an extremely laid back weekend which was awesome! I did manage to workout on Saturday but it wasn’t anything compared to your yoga. I think it’s so great that you love it. It’s such a detoxifying thing!

    You go!

  4. I do workout on lowkey weekends, which I love because I don’t feel rushed! I had a great lowkey weekend too, which consisted of a good mix of doing things and relaxing. I love weekends like that!

  5. I love relaxing weekends! That Gelato looks heavenly! I have had a four day weekend due to the northeast blizzard. It has been marvelous to catch up on sleep. I have been adding more yoga into my life this year. I am thinking of purchasing a Bikram groupon. This weekend I tried out my new Tara Stiles yoga DVD. I love your Valentine’s Day goodies for your students. 🙂 What grade do you teach? Hope you have a great rest of the week.

  8. Aww I miss being little when it comes to Valentine’s day. Everyone HAD to get you candy! I usually work out at least one of my weekend days but it usually isn’t as intense as my work week sessions for some reason.
