The Weekender: Fall is better in Vermont

Hello! Hope you had a nice weekend!  I just wanted to pop in and do a quick weekend recap.  I had a lovely weekend in Vermont, and now I’m back and ready to blog. :)

It was so nice to get away with my friends where no one had cell service, cable, or internet to distract them.   I even stepped away from the camera (for the most part) and just enjoyed being up there without documenting everything.  It’s so easy for me to fall into the blogger mindset of  omg-must-photograph-everything-I-eat!  The weekend was a much needed change of pace!


I brought my yoga mat and running gear up in hopes of sneaking in a workout or two.  I ended up going for a 25 min run the first morning we were there.  When I woke up, the sun was shining, the air was crisp, and the country dirt roads were calling to me!  I struggled during this run for a few reasons:

1. The air was colder than I was used to

2.  There were hills in every direction

3.  I may have been slightly hung over

After getting in this quick sweat session I felt 100000x better and I enjoyed my huge breakfast even more!  I didn’t work out again for the rest of the weekend, but I did go on a few walks.  I spent the rest of my time relaxing, eating, and drinking.


All the leaves were at their peak, so it was very beautiful up there.  The house has a two person swing on the porch which is overlooking a huge field with mountains in the background.  It is so relaxing to sit out there with your morning coffee, or your evening glass of wine.  The theme of this weekend seemed to be total relaxation for me, and it was exactly what I needed!

Now that I’m home and back to the grind, here are my workouts for the week:

Monday: 1 hour yoga class
Tuesday: OFF
Wednesday: 1 hour  yoga class
Thursday: Run?
Friday: Yoga? Jillian Michaels DVD?
Saturday: Body pump
Sunday: 1 hour Vinyasa yoga

I am absolutely loving this yoga challenge! Can you tell?



How was your weekend? Have you ever been to Vermont?

      That’s awesome you used to go 4 times a week! that’s what I’m trying to do now, and it’s kinda hard to commit to an hour long class. I really need more hours in the day!
