So, About This Weekend

Hey there, all. I was definitely missing a bit from the blog world over this past weekend – but I had a pretty good reason, which we’ll get to in a minute. Maybe this will help you to understand how I’m feeling right now:

Um, yeah, gonna have a couple of glasses of this tonight. But let’s talk about a nice part of my weekend — my Saturday workout! I haven’t gone on a power walk in quite some time — probably due to it being more chilly out than anything, but this past weekend the weather was fantastic and I just wanted to be outside. So after some coffee, I headed out for a 45 minute walk that had some great hills for a fantastic bootay burn!

After the walk, I decided to throw together two circuits to complete while watching repeats of the Jersey Shoes (don’t hate). Here’s what they looked like:

I did the above circuit twice and the below circuit four times for a fantastic workout:

Alllllrriggghhhttt let’s fast forward to Saturday Night. I had dinner plans with one of my very best friends, Alexis, for 7:30. Around 7:15 I left my house to meet her (I went to my parents’ house for most of the weekend since my sister was home from college) and was looking forward to some good food and talking. Well, there’s a ton of construction on the way to the restaurant, which causes two lanes to turn into one teeny tiny lane.

Before I knew it, everyone slammed on their brakes, including me. But the car behind me didn’t and SLAMMED into my car. Literally, people, I got the shit kicked out of me. And my car did, too. I bit down on my lip (which is fine) and I was squeezed up against my wheel. I couldn’t even process what was happening. I heard tons of metal scratching and glass was breaking and flying everywhere. I decided that I couldn’t control the wheel and my car basically smashed into the car in front of me and ricocheted right back into the car behind me. It was SO scary. I was convinced I was going to get really hurt, so just kind of prayed that it would be over.

As soon as the crash was over, the guy who crashed into me (his name was Scott and was about my age) ran out of his car somehow (which was totaled — an absolute scary mess) and came to see if I was okay. I was totally shaken up and the first thing he did was apologize over and over and over. He admitted that his GPS fell on the floor in that moment and he reached down to get it and wasn’t looking in front of him.

My car — my parents’ car, rather — is definitely a mess. I’m SO grateful that both myself and everyone else is okay. Scott hit me so hard that two cars in front of me had pretty bad damage too. It was a mess. Aside from a dull head ache that I’ve had since the crash, I’m feeling okay. I assume that the head ache is totally normal — but if I start to feel any other side effects, I’m going to go see a doctor.

So there’s my weekend in a nutshell! And now you can see why I need a glass of wine… or three. Yeah.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Talk to you tomorrow!
