Hey guys! Happy Monday! Just popping in to say hello and give a recap of my awesome weekend!
I have mentioned a few times that I was preparing for a presentation at my hospital’s medical lecture series. My presentation was on Wednesday and I talked about nutrition and chronic disease. I do have another post coming about my thoughts on a few things but in the meantime I will just tell you that it went really well! I love talking about nutrition and feel very lucky to have a career that I enjoy and am so passionate about.
I was so focused on that presentation that it had my full attention for the week leading up to it. I was definitely up for a fun weekend once it was over!
I kicked off the weekend by heading to my hometown Friday evening to stay with my friend, Allie. A group of my friends from high school decided to get together and we had such a fun night! Times like these always remind me what an awful blogger I am because I hardly took any pictures… but I will share details of the evening anyway!
We started the evening off at a new restaurant downtown called Ventura. I got a pasta dish but actually just wanted to mention that I had a taste of their pizza and it was AMAZING. I would definitely order that next time… and probably eat the entire thing myself. We all ordered different mixed drinks and those were awesome as well.
We stopped by a few bars throughout the night, which was interesting to say the least considering I was using crutches. I decided to forgo the scooter but immediately regretted it. Forget crutches… the scooter is the way to go!
I headed to northern VA on Saturday to spend the day with my grandmother and my brother. We hung out, got dinner together and watched the VT game. My grandmother is actually a UVA fan so she was a little tickled that VT lost to Duke (in 4th overtime, but we won’t get into that). I’ve been trying to convert her to a VT fan for over 10 years but haven’t had much luck so far…
I got up bright and early on Sunday and headed to Richmond to visit with my great aunts! We had lunch together and hung out for a bit. I’m glad I was able to see everyone in one trip
Now that my presentation is over, I’m looking forward to getting back into a normal routine with blogging, fitness and life in general. I am hoping to make it to the pool this week, which will be my first time swimming since I’ve been made non weight-bearing. Wish me luck with that I also have a review and giveaway coming this week for an awesome fitness planner that I got a chance to try out.
And on an exciting note, I purchased a new phone last week but have been waiting until my trip was over to activate it. I’m making the switch back from a droid to an iphone. Hopefully I don’t regret it!
What did you do this weekend?
Anything fun/exciting coming up this week?
