The weekend started pretty good, Friday was crazy busy and somehow I managed to muster up enough energy to pick up the toys. It's just a fantastic feeling to sit down on the couch and know the house is picked up - Aiden's at the 'pull out everything and drop it' phase. The balls in the house multiply over night too.
Saturday I went for a run before Crossfit, came home and made a 1 carb waffle - Oliver begged for me to make him one with his favorite protein powder and I have to say it was DELISH! The Protizyme powder is super fine and mixes up really well, the flavor was great!
We spent the morning swimming before Madison's soccer game, the temps are already going to hit triple digits this week. After soccer we stopped for snow cones, went home to nap for an hour before heading to dinner.
It was Aiden's first time at Babes Chicken and he made the most of it, the corn, the potato, the salad, and the smoked chicken. He's got his money's worth!
I was meeting up with some ladies who drove in for the Cycle Bar class on Sunday - my Babes girls as I now call them in my head. I love that it was just a laid back chill dinner, nothing fancy - I didn't even brush my hair. Oliver tagged along and talked about his love the whole time - CF and macros. We came back to the house for a little shopping and gossip.
Sunday was cycle day - Cycle Bar invited me to fill a class up for a free ride.
So that's what we did! I've done lots of spin classes at different gyms I've been too, this is my first time at a cycle only kinda place and I loved it! Having great bikes, clip in shoes, and loud music makes all the difference. It was an hour long class and I worked up a great sweat! I liked that they had a TV that shows the class stats, you can compete with each other, and they even email you the link to the Spotify playlist they used!! I'm ALWAYS on the look out for new music.
It's a little weird for me to do meet ups with large amount of people, I always feel bad that I don't get a chance to talk to everyone. I love getting to meet so many people who follow my journey and even more when they are local! I've met so many great women and it's just a great community we have going - online and then in real life.
I really really wanted Hash House afterwards, but the wait was insane so we walked over to Katy Trail Ice House and got sat immediately.
The drinks were cold and the food was good - the company was a bit stinky ;) Just kidding Poppy, you smelled like roses.
Overall it was a fun day, I got to meet new friends and try something new. I have a to do list 3 miles long this week, we leave for Flordia on Friday. I think it's more stressful to fly even though driving 16 hours sounds terrible too - trying to pack enough but not too much is hard for 4 people. Do I take a stroller? Can I rent one at Disney? What about my protein powder, bars, other need food items? I'd like to pack my essentials, but I don't want to pay for all those baggage fees on the airplane either. Then I have Oliver's fear of flying to contend with - so 3 children on the plane.
Oliver insisted on a night flight so we leave at 8:30pm and arrive at midnight - with a 2 year old who is not going to be happy to be missing his 9pm bedtime. Orlando does have a hotel in the airport so I rented a room there hoping that will be easier then renting the car and trying to drive somewhere at 1 am with tired kids and a drugged husband.
I think we decided to only do one park at Disney while we are there, Magic Kingdom was the most recommended. I'm mostly excited to just see all my family, there will be about 20 of us so lots of great memories to be made! If anyone has recommendations of fun things for all ages - minus Disney - to do in Orlando please let me know :)
