The DST Weekend Recap

It is very hard to wake up at 6:30 a.m. when you know deep inside your heart that it's really 5:30 a.m.. Daylight Savings Time: the struggle is real!

How's your weekend? I've only got about half a cup of coffee in me so far today, so let's skip the pleasantries and make this post as un-wordy as possible:

I ran 10 miles on Saturday morning. It was muddy:

Clayton and I both suffered full-blown panic attacks watching this movie:

Joey and I walked just shy of 5 miles on Sunday and I took him on several errands, which he LOVED:

Clayton surprised me with a new grill and we loaded up on chicken breasts for the week (I went to bed with the smell of grill smoke in my hair. It was amazing!):

We made lots of food:

I recreated my FAVORITE meal from O'Charley's: California chicken salad with greens, grilled chicken breasts, strawberries, goat cheese, pecans and homemade dressing!

I made my own vinaigrette for the salad from a recipe my sister-in-law gave me: Olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, honey, salt and pepper (I added extra ACV because I LOVE the tang of vinegar!)

Ever since my mom made some, Clayton's had a hankering for chocolate-dipped strawberries. Our grocery store was running a heck of a sale on berries, so we loaded up and made our own! I also a smell another mixed berry pie in our future ...

I began devouring another book:

Ms. Jodi is definitely one of my favorites.

How about you? What did you do this weekend?


  1. Sounds like a pretty nice little weekend! I did some window shopping at an outdoor shopping mall (the temps on Saturday were in the 50's!), made some grain-free/sugar-free coconut macaroons dipped in dark chocolate (TO.DIE.), and lifted. I ran today, but my body just hated every second of it, and I only got about 3.5 miles done before my body just said, "ENOUGH."

    I blame daylight savings and losing an hour yesterday. I still can't figure out what time it is.

    Hope you had a great Monday!

    1. Window shopping! I love window shopping ... except it usually turns into just, buying. ha ha!

      Those macaroons sounds AMAZING! I've never tried to make them. Are they hard?

      I'm surprisingly over DST already. I've woken up more chipper and excited to greet the day than I have in MONTHS. But that's maybe just because it's so close to spring!?

    2. Ha ha! I forced myself to legit just window shop, since I'd spent a mint the week before on new spring/summer work attire. My clothes were so sad last year...I don't know how people stayed friends with me, to be honest.

      They're WICKED easy!! The recipe I used is this one -- -- gluten/grain-free, refined sugar free! Well, the dark chocolate kinda negates that sugar-free aspect, but dark chocolate is good for you and Paleo friendly!

      I'm guessing it's because it's close to spring...even though we're due for some arctic air on Thursday...but we won't think about that right now...
