(my dinner at Max Burger)
Hope you all had a fabulous long holiday weekend- and are still able to fit into your work attire this morning! If your families are anything like ours’, your weekend was filled with lots of wine, food, company, and more food. But hey, that’s what holidays are for right? They’re supposed to be a nice break from the day to day grind, a time we can relax, and enjoy ourselves. Now time to get back in “spring/summer” fitness mode today!
I needed this long weekend so badly… they always seem to come when I need them the most. Sam and I took last Thursday off as well, and spent the day doing just what we felt like; woke up a bit later, sipped our coffee a bit longer, I went to a midday Barre class at Equinox with a training session that night, Sam hit up the driving range (it was too chilly for me), and got a few things ready before driving up to MA the next day.
On Friday Sam and I got up early, and made it to EQ for a morning workout. We wanted to get a good sweat in before the rest of our weekend would be dedicated to family. I had a nice 25 min run followed by some strength training and toning ball work. After our workouts, we quickly went home (always in a rush!), got ready + threw some things in a couple duffels, and made the drive up to my parents’ in MA. I was so excited, because I was going to go back to visit my mom, teachers, and students at the Middle School! A couple years ago, I was a long-term substitute teacher there (feels like yesterday!) and loved it so much. This was the first time I’d been back to visit all year and was so great to see them all!
Later that night, we went out to get all the grocery essentials for Easter, and then went to dinner in Longmeadow at our new go-to spot, Max Burger. It’s my #1 choice when home in MA. They have a huge menu with awesome salads, burgers, entrees, and beverages. They have the best turkey burger and sweet potato fries I’ve ever had! However, I went with the grilled chicken sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and mustard on a whole wheat bun. For sides I had grilled asparagus and s.p. fries (obviously) and two UFO Raspberry Wheat ales- totally hit the spot. A salad just wouldn’t have cut it and I would have been disappointed if I didn’t get something out of the norm. This was our first time taking Sam to Max Burger and I think he loved it- cool vibe, great location, and awesome food. Not to mention, I was so happy to spend the evening with my parents.
We were so exhausted when we got home, but really wanted to hang with my brother a bit. We all stayed up to watch the first Bruins playoff game then went to bed.
Great couple days : )
