Going into the weekend I thought that Netflix would be the one I would give my heart to for Valentine's Day.
This heart, the one that I made out of semi-sweet chocolate chips and an attempt with a calligraphy pen.
It started off that way - we flirted a little bit Friday night, exchanged glances, maybe a bit more but I promised that I'd never tell.
When I woke up Saturday morning with feelings of regret and shame, I realized I'd been lying in bed for 15 hours, and also lying to myself about what I really wanted in a relationship. Netflix was always there for me, giving me anything I needed, helping me through the hard times, always offering me something new - but never challenging me. Always comfortable to be with, but never moving me forward.
Then I remembered how deeply I wanted a swole-mate to have my whey with... so I took my opportunity to work out with ClassPass and made it a weekend full of loving me - body, mind and soul! I dated my sexy muscles. Gave them the love and attention they deserve. Took them out on the town and did them good.
Where'd we go?
Pure Barre - Holy what, you barre girls are crazy and have powerful pelvic muscles. I liked... a lot.
Aspire Total Fitness - Bodypump hit my arms and shoulders just right.
The Grinning Yogi - Chill Flow for some good vibes, easy transitions and that deep stretch love. I even made it a date and invited Caitlin to come along too!
Don't forget the part where I made this spinach, bacon, avocado, yummy something salad. I washed it down with only one glass of wine. No, I didn't spell "bottle" wrong. Glass.
My Sunday morning workout thanked me for it.
I can't picture a better weekend more full of love. Love of body, love of self, love of mind!
Also love of SNL40, that was pretty silly for the bit I was able to stay awake for.
How was your lovely weekend?
