My Valentine

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?

Netflix is a wicked temptress, but ClassPass is definitely where it's at :)

No, I didn't spell "bottle" wrong. Glass. - LOLOL!!!!

Looks like you had an amazing and healthy weekend. For shame Nadine.....for shame.....

Everyone is talking about class pass. I wonder if my area does that? I doubt it would work out for me living too far away from everything but I love the idea!

Katie Elizabeth said...

Haha, I second Tami's comment - majorly putting me to shame! I did nothing but sit on my butt and eat chocolate chip cookies this weekend! Glad yours was a good one :)

I loved this entire post seriously!! Date those muscles girl haha I wish I had a Barre class near me. I think I'd love it but would probably suck at it haha. Love the salad also!
