From Long Beach to Long Beach!

Last weekend I was in Long beach, CA for my grandmas birthday and this weekend thr bf and I took a little road trip to Long Beach, WA. 

This week I did all my training for my new floating concierge position. I worked Friday morning then met the bf at my place and we headed to Washington. 

Complete with doggie and all!! He wasn’t too happy about the traffic hahahahaha

We got a little dog friendly motel room right on the beach. Went for a little run Saturday morning 

After our little run we headed into town for lunch and some exploring 

Super stoked to see this hahahahaha

And got the biggest ice cream cone ever!!

Even sharing it with the bf I couldn’t finish it!

It was a fun quick trip, I had to be back by mid-day Sunday so I could train that night. 

This morning I had an amazing breakfast 

12 grain toast with a 2 egg omelet that had onions and Parmesan cheese and an orange. Mmmm I’m hungry just thinking about it. 

Then I rode the trimet/max around town getting down the routes from my place to the places I would concierge at. Parking downtown is horribly priced.

It was an interesting day lol. 

And tonight I hit the gym to do 3 miles while watching The Bachelor 

And a little Veronica Mars before bed

Weekend Wrap-up 

Let’s see Thursday i had class the hit the gym to train with my friend. After strength training we hit the treadmills, i watched Grey’s Anatomy and ran

I did intervals 

Friday the boyfriend came over, we took Artemis to the dog park the ran some errands. 

We went out to dinner and got Thai food. I got pineapple fried rice and he got pad thai……..they put curry in my pineapple fried rice!!!!! That was so not listed in the ingredients and I am not a big fan of curry, thankfully the boyfriend is and he very gallantly traded dinner with me.  Afterwards we hit the bar for a pre-movie cocktail, this was probably my second drink of the year hahahahaha, I don’t drink much. Then we headed to the movie and saw Fifty Shades Darker. I enjoyed it. 

Saturday I made us chips and dip, a delicious but simple dip my mom always made. Cream cheese on the bottom then mild diced green chilis add chili on top of that and cheese on top of that and bake in the oven at 375-400 until the sides bubble. 

Then we went mini-golfing

He completely decimated me. 

Saturday night we made homemade pizzas

I am also babysitting my roommates dog this weekend, he says hi

Today was relaxing. We met my friend at the park and went for a run

 


I am quite happy, my goal for the week was 9 miles and my weekly total was 10.6!!

That brings my yearly total to 41.6. 

My goal for next week is 12 miles. 

And now it’s study time!!! My midterm is on Tuesday, wish me luck!!!!!

How was your weekend?

Weekend Wrap-up 

Hi!!

This time last year I was in Hawaii 

And now I am waiting to see if this rain turns to snow tonight hahahaha a little different.  

Great weekend though

I made chicken terriyaki bowls with the boyfriend Friday night

And watched Inferno. I love Dan Browns novels and am super excited that he is working on another story in the Robert Langdon series! 

Saturday the boyfriend and I took a little roadtrip to Corvallis to visit his Alma Mater

We walked around and drove around. Visited my grandmas old house

I spent at least a week here every summer.

We kept up pur streak of trying pizza places, we tried American dream pizza 

It looks amazing but sadly neither of us were very impressed with this pizza. It seemed like they just cooked a cheese pizza then put the toppings on it after. Don’t need to ever return there. 

After we got home the bf and I hit the cheap movie theater near me for a double feature. A Dog’s Purpose and The Space Between Us, both totally cute. 

In other news the boyfriend broke down and bought a Garmin!!! His is the next generation after mine so the heart rate monitor is built in. It’s pretty cool and now we are a Garmin couple lol

I made pasta with chicken, tomato and basil for meal prep this week and sent some with the bf for his lunch this week of course. 

I had some leftover pasta so dinner was a super simple cheese and basil pasta

It was actually pretty delicious 

Picked up something yummy to satisfy my sweet cravings 

Last weeks running total was 6.6 miles. 

This years running total thus far, 31 miles

Going to shoot for 9 miles this week. Slowly increasing 

How was your weekend?

How are you doing workout wise this year?

Favorite pizza topping?

Mine is pineapple and onion

Weekend Wrap-up 

Howdy! 

Friday the boyfriend and I thought we would go for a little hike. We picked a spot, got some snacks, and packed up the dog. I was excited for a fun hike, our first one together!! We get there and start walking up the trail and……….it’s almost all ice

This might not have a been problem if my shoes had better traction, if i wasn’t clumsy, and if the below dog didn’t like to run into me at full speed ans knock me over

I turned us around pretty quickly, so our hike eneded up being a grand total of .75 miles. 

We picked up a pizza Friday night. 

Another yummy pizza. Peperoni, sausage, onions and peppers. 

Saturday we mostly relaxed, I got a delicious root beer float from A&W!!! Yumm, i hadn’t had one since September 

Sunday was a study and read day for me

Got my HW done

Watched some old episodes of amazing race

Then decided I felt like reading

I had some company…….though my company kept passing some nasty gas

And i enjoyed a bottle of hard cider to go with it!

And now I’m tired and want sleep.

Adaptability 

Well my running Bones date didn’t go quite as planned. I got to the gym…..and none of the TV’s were set to Fox!!! Tragedy, ok a first world tragedy, but still arg. I still ran but not as well or as long as I would have if I had the distraction of Bones. 

Wednesday was an all study day.

Thursday was class and lab. They went well. In between class and lab I have about a 90 min break so I usually do some HW and snack, I’m finally getting my school routine down and brought a snack so I only bought a soda

Naan bread and hummus.

Just hanging out between classes.

When I got home I took Artemis for a walk

Something about this tree must have smelled amazing because we were there for like 3 minutes. My goal was to run after class but I didn’t feel 100% so I took Artemis for a walk then did a few errands then studied. After I laid down for a little nap. I was meeting my gym partner at 6:30pm for strength training and after my nap I got my butt up off the couch and went to the gym early to get my run in. 

She always makes me feel so bad when I leave!!!! She is so dang cute!!!

My run felt really good!!!

Out of 44 minutes I only walked about i of it. 

Slowly building back up. Then the boyfriend came over and picked up Taco for us. My splurge TGIT dinner! 

I was so hungry i only got a blurry picture before i wolfed it down 

Of course I didn’t actually watch my TGIT shows since the boyfriend came and they are not his kind of shows so I’ll be watching the later on demand.  Here’s to a great weekend!!!

First, ok sort of second, step to physical therapy school!!!

The first step was enrolling in my first prerequisite class. 

I’ve been making extra large batches of food on the weekends to live off during the week and supplementing with snacks and things I have put in the freezer in the past few months. 

Nice leftovers though huh?

Ugh and the boyfriend has gotten me stuck on these

I am trying really hard to only drink them on the weekends though, fake sugar is not good for you. 

I passed my personal training certification exam yesterday!!!!! Woot woot! Now comes the question, how do I want to use it? I haven’t quite figured that out yet. 

After the exhaustive exam I got an hour of HW done then headed to the gym to workout with a friend. After the gym it was HW time, I buckled down and got HW done at a reasonable hour and again had a cuddle buddy.

Of course I’m rocking some Veronica Mars in the background! 

Today I had biology class and lab, once again I felt like I really had my stuff together. I love that feeling.

After class I came home And took Artemis for a walk

Now for the PT school stuff
I can already tell trying to get these hours done is going to be difficult, at least until I get some contacts in the industry. 

I’ve called 6 places so far. 1 is going to hopefully call me back. The receptionist wasn’t sure if the physical therapist did observation hours or not (it was a complete rehab place with a bunch of different services) I left a message with her and hopefully the physical therapist will call me back. 
The 2nd place also took a message but has gotten back to me. They are a smaller place and are not accepting  any volunteers right now.
The 3rd said I needed to apply online in their job area. I looked in the education/training area but nothing so far so I am still working on that
The 4th is a hospital so my fingers are crossed on that hoping there are more opportunities, they also took a message so I’m waiting on that call.
The 5th one also took a message and will hopefully call me back. 

Success!!! Sort of. The last of the 6 places I called today is emailing me information on their volunteer program for physical therapy. Fingers crossed!!!!!!
I’ll let you know how it goes. 

Tonight I have another date with Bones at the gym!!! 

Have a great night!!

Weekend Wrap-up 

My boyfriend lives an hour away so he usually comes out and spends the weekend, before he got to my place I set up a little study nest for myself. 

I was sitting on this for hours while studying 

It was killing my back so I made this

In order to study this

Friday night we watched some Vikings tv show, I had never watched it. 

Saturday we took a roadtrip to the beach, just a day trip

We headed to Astoria and had lunch at the Wet Dog Cafe 

Delicious!!!!

After lunch we saw some protesters 

Then headed to an old fort that Lewis and Clark built to look around 

Then we headed to an old military fort built in the civil war and decommissioned after WWII

After the forts we headed to Seaside and played in an arcade for a little over an hour hahahaha. Then we found a top 50 in America pizza place

It was delicious!!!!

The boyfriend and I LOVE pizza!!! This was so good, it was an olive oil based sauce, very creamy cheese, red onions, artichoke hearts and fresh basil. 

Today was another relaxing day. Tomorrow it’s back to cracking the books.
