This weekend, I knew exactly what I needed to do. I needed to take a break, slow down, and do what felt best for me. As much as I love going out on the weekends, I also love waking up Saturday morning not hungover. So that’s what I did.
Therefore, the theme of this weekend was treating and retreating (and eating! haha).
By the way – guess who’s off vegan! More on that later.
I took a break from going out, and made lunch dates with friends instead. Rather than sleeping in, I woke up early and tackled some workouts. It felt good! It’s all about balance, right?
Friday started out with some FABULOUSLY repurposed Chipotle leftovers.
I stopped by a nearby co op grocery store and grabbed their Chipotle Potato Salad (to diiiee for), and a cup of Kosmic Kombucha on tap (!!). I put my Chipotle sofritas burrito bowl leftovers over a bed of spinach, and added the potato salad & sliced avocado. Ridiculously good.
And even though I had time to spare on Saturday, it was an overnight oats kind of morning.
I feel so lucky to have access to inexpensive produce. I was able to pick up strawberries, mangoes, blackberries, mini bell peppers, cauliflower, celery and lettuce for under $10!
Since the sun was shining all weekend, I was inspired to do some “gardening.” I planted basil, mint, sweet basil, parsley, and some annuals. I have the furthest thing from a green thumb, so we’ll see how this goes.
I hope my flowers and herbs can fend well in the upcoming Texas heat … though I tend to even kill indoor plants as well. My bad.
Though it was a fairly low-key weekend, it was just the retreat I was looking for. I’m hoping to keep these good vibes flowing into the week ahead!
