(Long) Weekend Update – Sleep, Eats, and Skipping CrossFit

Happy Tuesday, all! One week from yesterday I will be landing in the Bahamas, so I’m pretty much focused on that as I start this short week. Let’s look back at the long weekend, shall we?

Friday was the usual work–>CrossFit–>rehearsal deal. I booked it home and pretty much went straight to bed, because I wasn’t feeling 100% well. Boring.

I slept in LATE, almost until 11, which is quite unusual for me, but I was just trying to kick this cold. Ben took off to go snowboarding relatively early, and I just hung out for a while, waking up and deciding what to do with my day. I opted for equal parts relaxation and productivity, doing some cleaning and tidying around the house, reading, video gaming, and lots of other randomness.

In the evening, we met up with a group of friends at Stone Corral, a brewpub a couple of towns over. It was packed, and we had to wait a while to snipe a table, but it ended up being worth it. I had some delicious fish tacos and two tasty beers, and there was live music too, which was nice.

We finished up the evening with a nightcap and dessert at our friends’ place, and then headed home for some more sleep, as I was still feeling under the weather.

I was up and at ’em by 8:30 Sunday morning, even though I didn’t have rehearsal until 1pm. Knowing that I had all day Monday to do things like meal prep left me to enjoy a leisurely morning at home. My father in law made breakfast, and I just lounged about, reading and slowly getting myself ready to go into town.


Rehearsal was a relatively short deal, working on some of the larger dance numbers at a local dance studio. It’s always nice to have mirrors to help you see spacing and make sure you’re doing the moves correctly.

Ben’s Aunt Maureen was up for the night to visit Grammy, so we had a nice dinner of lasagna, garlic bread, and salad, and spent the evening chatting. We still went to bed relatively early, though, since Ben still had to work Monday.

I was up pretty early again, feeling much better rested than I have in a while, though my sinuses were still full of junk. I spent most of the morning reading, then spent a good chunk of the afternoon doing meal prep. I made my usual batch of rice and beans, but this time I also sauteed some boneless, skinless chicken thighs to add a bit more protein into the mix.


After that, I made the decision that I was NOT going to go to CrossFit. *GASP* I know. I really do love CF, but I just needed to relax at home a bit longer before going in for rehearsal. I was able to spend another hour and change at home, read my book, eat dinner, and THEN go to rehearsal, which was a long and somewhat arduous affair. Lots of hurry up and wait. Sometimes it’s unavoidable, but it was frustrating nonetheless. Once I got home, I immediately got ready for bed and went lights out.

I would say that today I’m feeling about 90% well. Honestly, the only thing that’s bothering me is my sinuses. They are just unpredictable and full of stuff. I’ve been religiously using my neti pot and my desktop humidifier, so I’m confident that I’ll be totally well before we fly out on Monday. Eeeeee!! I can’t wait.

Did you have a holiday on Monday? What did you do with it?

    No holiday for me! But it was fine, I didn’t have tons of work to do, so I was able to space things out a bit. And hey, just because I love nachos doesn’t mean I eat them everyday…

    We had Heritage day/family day on Monday and it was great. I slept in until 9, which is pretty awesome with little kids. We went bowling with my soccer team, so a fun day together. Still trying to kick this cold too!
