This is exactly why I started this blog – so I can help myself find a healthy balance in my life (it has been hard in the past). This weekend, I think I found what I was looking for.
Friday night, hubby and I went out for a friend’s b-day at a new place in Denver called the PunchBowl. We had a blast talking with our friends and having a drink. We didn’t party hard, but still had a great time.
Saturday started with a great running workout:
A delightful morning date with hubby to see:
And then I made these (yes, I MADE them and they were delicious!):
Sunday was a great hike with Jack and a good friend and her dog. It was the first time they met and I was worried about Jack, but he surprised me and was amazing!
For the Super Bowl, I made some super-spicy chili and we went to a friend’s house to “watch” the game. Really we played Cards Against Humanity during the game and watched the commercials until the second quarter.
I say I have found healthy balance because this weekend was the first time in a long time with me-time, hubby-time, friend-time, party-time, down-time, and puppy-time that didn’t make me feel overwhelmed and wanting to retreat to the house to take a breath. It is a healthy balance because I ate well, but didn’t obsess about my food choices. I skipped a solo bike workout to go hiking with a friend and didn’t feel like I had to justify it to myself. I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate this about my life right now – because I haven’t felt this way in a long time and I want to remember it!
I want to create a healthy balance in my life. And I think I am on my way to that.
