Four day weekend

I know it isn’t in the true spirit of the holidays, but am I ever excited for a long weekend. It isn’t even like we have big plans. In fact, it’s more like we have none of them. Well, limited plans anyway. And I, for one, would like to keep it that way.

My weekend to do list:

  • A Giants Western Conference Championship game
  • Weekly library visit
  • Stuffing Easter baskets for my family
  • A very traditional Easter family barbecue
  • Many books

This 30 grams of protein per meal task is more taxing than I’d expected. It’s two challenges is one, really. The first: eat three times a day with at least 90 minutes of fasting in between. The second is the protein piece. I’ve just completed my second consecutive day, but I’ll be honest, my dinner protein consisted of an identical copy of the protein smoothie I had for breakfast on both days.

And why does it always feel like the weeks preceding and/or following a long weekend are always the longest. We worked hard for this, friends, let’s make the most of it.

How are you celebrating Easter this weekend? Does your family have traditions built around this holiday?

    Are you familiar with the American faux-Aussie chain restaurant called Outback Steakhouse? I do not recall it’s specific genesis but my family has been celebrating with an Easter lunch there for YEARS. At least fifteen. We took the year off after my dad passed away but we’ve been back at it for quite a while.
    My mom doesn’t like ham or brunches, both quintessential Easter activities so we hit up the steak joint. It might actually just be that simple, but I don’t remember why it’s this place over any number of others. It’s corny and fun and doesn’t have to make sense. They do make a mean carrot cake. 🥕
