Another weekend in the books.  This one was pretty relaxing and I'm not complaining. Pretty soon (like two weeks) DQ will start school and the hectic back to school craziness will start.

Saturday started off with a not so quick 3 miles.  My pace has slowed way down, I am so not happy about that but tit's my own fault (it has been a struggle to get myself motivated as you all know) I think I may need to get back to my early morning runs and quick!. After my run I enjoyed a coffee protein shake (like my glass lol) by the pool.

Then it was off to the farmers market and Sam's Club (yes I realize that is an oxymoron of sorts but I'm a rebel…and just to prove it I'm ordering my chicken coop for my urban farm fresh egg layers from Amazon haha) to stock up on some healthy eats.

And though I will be ordering my coop from Amazon it won't be for a few weeks (the chicks need to stay inside until they are fully feathered about 5-6 weeks). So the hubs and I built this cool little chick brooder all by ourselves( he even let me use the circular saw that is after i pouted that I was a big girl and knew how to use power tools), and the new tenets will be here next week.  We, ok DQ and I are so excited the hubs still thinks I'm nuts  but how awesome will pet chickens be!

To end the weekend we went to The Cheesecake Factory.  It was so good and  easy to stay on track they have the best skinnylicious menu.  I know right Cheesecake Factory and "healthy-ish" food who knew...

How was your weekend? do anything nuts?

Linking up with Katie and Motivational  Monday.


  1. I really, really want chickens but I know the'd get taken by the wild life in my backyard. But oh the eggs!!

  2. I am not much of an egg eater but wanted to have chickens so bad!! But the new hood doesn't allow them, so I'm back to 'wishful' thinking. I have no idea why, but its all the rage around Austin so I hear about it all the time!

    1. Really I love eggs :) but I hear that they make really fun "pets" too. , and have great personalities.

    I really want chickens but we have such a tiny yard and the city has so many rules. Hopefully some day.

    1. Luckily I have a pretty good size yard for the city, and the rules are not to restrictive seeing as the other half of the city is mostly farm and dairy land. :)
