Some weekend randomness in eats, shopping and outdoor adventures!
Thinking Out Loud
I love weekends. Especially summer weekends. This 80 degree weather has me feeling all sorts of happy. There really is something to happiness coming from the sunshine!
Made this breakfast lasagna today from the blog immaeatthat! - love the recipes on her blog and following her journey! Made a few changes by subbing in chopped ham for the sausage and I also added some red pepper and some onion - sorry that this isn't the prettiest of pictures! You can check out her blog and the original recipe HERE
Also made it to the gym this am! I hadn't been there in a few days and it felt good. Ran for just under 30 minutes and also did some legs, shoulder and ab work. Done in 45 minutes and got the heart really pumping. My max HR was 160 - my resting HR is in the 40s-50s and its HARD to get my heart rate up that high! I'm finding more joy in fitting in less workouts during the week but making them EFFECTIVE! Love HIIT style ones and the time flies by - oh and speaking of workouts....
Shaun Week starts tomorrow! For the next seven days there will be a new workout each day from Shaun T on Beachbody on Demand - His other workout programs include Insanity, T25, Insanity Max 30 and CIZE. In the past I have completed the full Max 30 program and while it was intense, I could def get back to it for a week. Each day will definitely be a surprise and I am not sure what to expect... - you can join me for free if you would like - accountability partners perhaps?

Accountability + free recipes + workouts...why not?
Flashback to Friday night...how beautiful right? Me, B and another couple went out fishing! We headed to a spot that B has been to a few nights this past week and the walleyes have been biting! Unfortunately I didn't catch a thing! But the boys did so we came home with five nice fish! It was a bit breezy, but overall gorgeous evening with good company and a cold drink. No complaints here. Plus we got quite the lightning show on the way home - HUGE storm rolled through!
and fish for supper tonight it is! This isn't the fish we caught Friday - this was some perch from the freezer! All the same delish - and can't go wrong with sweet potato fries ... my fav!
This was a Saturday night supper - eat all the leftover! Pork Tenderloin, onions and daiya cheese on a Josephs brand pita - drizzled with bolthouse ranch and bbq! Alongside that was some leftover stirfry veggies also covered with melted daiya cheese. Do you have any dairy free favorites or suggestions for me?
Sunday afternoon HOT outdoor adventure! Went with B to hang no trespassing signs on the hunting land. Trekked through weeds up to my chest and the alfalfa and was convinced I would be COVERED with ticks. But nothing so far! It's seriously BEAUTIFUL out here...
River looks a bit muddy doesn't it? Love this view.
Swung through Fleet Farm on the way back home because we needed a part to fix his trailer that I broke last weekend. Oh that's another story..did I mention his truck is going to the shop too (yup I'm a horrible GF...)
I know they call it the "man's mall" - but seriously...You can find anything there! A trailer part turned into...chocolate, snacks, powerade, tanning spray, and yeah.... you like Fleet Farm too?
B proclaimed.."Tonight we are going to Dairy Queen." um.... ok. talked me into it! It's been a LOOONGGG time since I've been there! I ordered an oreo blizzard, but somehow ended up with cookie dough.. oh well. Not even mad! B tried out the brookie blizzard - Have you tried that one yet? Also...Why can't they bring back the Monster Cookie Dough Blizzard and the S'more's Blizzard. BEST. ONES. EVER. Just saying...
What are some of the highlights from your weekend?
What is your favorite Dairy Queen treat? What blizzard should they bring back?
Fleet Farm... yay or nay?
