September 20-21, 2014 // Meals + Hike + Le Moulin Rouge + Massage + Baby + Pizza //
Saturday started off with a hike up Kennesaw Mountain with my hiking group. I love this hike. It’s about 6.5 miles at a moderate pace - I clock in about 15K steps on my Fitbit by the time I’m done. It was a gorgeous day for a hike - in the 70s - and very clear…it’s usually kind of hazy looking out at Atlanta from a distance.
Afterward, one of the guys suggested going over to UpDog Smoothies, which is an all-natural smoothie bar located in Be Yoga, off of Marietta Square. I got the Barrettasana, which is raspberry, banana, strawberry, blueberry, kale, apple, ginger, grapes, and carrots. It was potent but great!
Saturday night, I had a girl’s night in event with a new friend of mine where we were supposed to watch Moulin Rouge!. We never did. Instead, we ate pizza, drank wine, and playing some singing game on the PS2 in our yoga pants. It was a silly but fun night.
Sunday, I had a deep tissue massage scheduled at Sweetgrass Spa. I have to say, if that was a deep tissue massage, I’d want my money back for a regular massage. Perhaps I’ve been ruined for everyone else after going to my sports massage therapist, but I demand pressure! That was not pressure. I also find it frustrating when therapists ask what area I want worked on and then ignore the request. Boo on this experience.
Sunday night, Heather and I went to visit Amanda and Kevin in the hospital to see their brand new baby! She is adorable - and very big! She weighed 9lb, 12oz and was 21” long. Wowzer. Afterward, we went to dinner and ate more….PIZZA. Whoopsy.
Great weekend, though! Lots going on but was lots of fun! Time to get back to my regularly scheduled diet!
