Being My Own Valentine

Did you enter my Multigrain Cheerios Giveaway yet?

Patrick and I had a lovely weekend away celebrating my birthday.  This is how Patrick spoiled me this year (can you tell I have a slight obsession with the sparkles?):

It was great to relax and do nothing.  I suppose we could have done nothing at home, but at home I can't help but look around and think of all the things that could be done or cleaned.  Being away, it's out of sight and out of mind!  While we enjoyed ourselves, we also did a fair amount of eating, so it's back on the bandwagon today!

I'm extra proud of myself because I motivated myself to do this workout before I left for the day:

I consider it my Valentine's Day gift to myself.  Because I'm worth it!  This is the first time I tried this DVD out and I really liked it.  I don't own a kettlebell yet, but I like that you can do this workout with a hand weight.  The heaviest hand weight I have is only 5 pounds, so I'm thinking I need a heavier one.  I would eventually like to invest in a kettlebell though.  I only did Level 1 today, but the workout just flew by.  It was about 30 minute workout and I thought it was just the right length for this type of routine.

Did you treat yourself right this Valentine's Day?  Patrick and I also enjoyed a yummy meal (ok, so that wasn't so healthy, but you can't win 'em all right!).
