Olympic Weekend - Erin's Inside Job

Olympic Weekend

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was nice and slow again, which is always a plus. I have some trips and visits happening in the next couple months, so I’ll take these nap-filled weekends for sure.

Because it was pretty low key, this is another quick recap with more words than pictures.

Neil and I started and finished Stranger Things on Netflix after seeing so many mentions of it in the internet world. I liked it, but not as much as American Horror Story. I had some disagreements about this, but I stand by my vote.

I slept in until 9 am on Saturday, which is unheard of for me. This meant that I couldn’t make it to take a class before teaching two at Sweat. Oh well.

On the way home, Neil met me at Whole Foods where we found salmon tacos on sale and I stocked up on a case of kombucha if you saw me on IG stories. Even though I couldn’t get a whole workout in, I did carry the case back about 5 or 6 blocks. Woof.

Salmon Tacos

We started Stranger Things on Friday night and finished it on Saturday after I got home. It’s only 8 episodes, so we split it into four a day.

Sunday morning I woke up at 7:30 am (more like it), had my tea, and made a delicious bowl of pinole, which I’ve been loving lately. It’s a warm, whole grain hot cereal that has been used for hundreds of years as a staple in some South American countries and which also serves as a great fuel for athletes.

Purely Pinole

While I lazed on the couch, Neil cleaned things like a maniac, then we headed to the new Block 37 theaters, which offer reclining seats and in-movie dining. Ordering food I can’t see always weirds me out, so we just watched STAR TREK and it was glorious.

Afterwards, we headed to Nando’s Peri-Peri, which made it my second time in the week that I had this sandwich. I didn’t have time to take a good picture because I was starving.


We headed home, watched some movies with The Rock, took a nap, then I wrote some training plans and watched gymnastics, which is always my favorite event of the Olympics! It’s a very exciting weekend around these parts.

Hope you all had a great one and let me know what you did in the comments!

  1. I loved Stranger Things and am so sad there were only 8 episodes! The best thing I ate was a lemony shrimp and zucchini/tomato pasta my hubs made. And ice cream (duh?). Gymnastics will always be my favorite Olympic sport. Oh, and since there’s a 40-year old Uzbekstani woman competing on vault this year, you realize we still have a shot for 2020! 😉

    1. I know! She’s been competing since forever! I told Neil my new life goal is to hire a coach and go to the next olympics and then they will make a movie about my life Hahahaha.

  2. Instagram stories are quickly starting to become my favorite, because I can see even more of my friends on there than Snapchat, but I still see things on Snapchat that I don’t see on Instagram.

    Those theaters are really interesting to me. I’m not sure what it would feel like to be in a recliner while watching a film at the theater. I imagine it might be nice.

  3. Had a ton of me-time this weekend, which was kind of refreshing. Also hung out with one of my good friends and her 11-month old baby, who is the happiest and most adorable little ham I’ve ever met. Yay!
    I’m a huge scaredy cat and won’t watch Stranger Things if there’s an ounce of horror/creepy-ness in it. Merp.

    1. Haha then no do not watch it. I love me time. I’m getting some new candles in this week that I’m OBSESSED with so I can hide and read.
