Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today, I woke up and completely forgot it was a holiday! It made me think of back in elementary school, when little holidays like today were a big deal. I always bounded out of bed, super excited for the festivities ahead. I remember days filled with cupcakes, candy and tons of cute presents from my mama. Any day filled with sweets is a good day in my book
We didn’t celebrate too much at work today, and Chris and I already celebrated ourValentine’s day last night.
Our Saturday started with a long, sweaty workout at the gym. I recently renewed my membership at my work’s gym so I can incorporate more cardio in my workouts.
Since Chris is an alum, he showed me the ropes at the gym and I LOVE it!
We ran a little over at mile at the indoor track:
Then, I did 2 sets of 25 reps of:
- Bicep curls
- tricep extensions
- leg press
- chest flies
- inclined chest press
- calf raises
- hamstring curls
- hamstring extension
- deltoid lifts
- crunches (medicine ball, jack knife, bicycles)
Phew! That was a lot! There was probably more, we were there for awhile. Needless to say, I was in the mood for some food:
The gym was giving these mini Luna bars! The flavor was like a girl scout cookie, yum!
We walked in the freezing cold to City Sports and Eastern Mountain Sports to browse through the sale stuff…I wound up founding a bike that’s just my size:
Next up, dinner! We went to Fiorella’s in Newton. It’s seriously one of the BEST restaurants in the Boston area.
We started out with the arancini, which was a huge rice ball filled with Mozzarella cheese, fried and covered with tomato sauce
Then, I got pasta with chicken, mushrooms, garlic, tomato and basil sauce. Yum! Chris got homemade fusilli with bolognese and it was amazing. I was jealous.
Then, we had some of the BEST peanut butter pie. Allie, I know you’re jealous, but I also know you’re probably eating it tonight.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your night is filled with lots o’ love!
