Lazy Saturday Morning

Posted by Susan on July 11, 2009

I live for mornings like this ! It was so beautiful outside I had to share it ! I was up before it was light out this morning, to take care of the dogs I am house sitting for this weekend. By the time I left there , everything was beginning to wake up. After almost 2 months of mostly rain and dreary grey skies, I appreciate the sun all the more !

I weighed myself this morning and was not surprised with what I found. 141.4 lbs. I am still within my maintenance range ( 138 low/142 high), and after last night’s stupidity, I think my weigh in was pretty good ! Sweets before bed are not exactly a brilliant idea !

Today I have no formal plans . I have weekly laundry to get done, and some light cleaning. I would like to get the cooking done for the week, and experiment with a new recipe I found on a blog. I’ve also deemed today an official “Rest Day” since I haven’t taken one since the week before Father’s Day. I think my body needs it. I’ve over trained in the past. A part of finding balance is also giving my body the rest it needs. I am honestly not sure I can do it. My workouts have become a really important part of my life. I miss it when I don’t do them ! I know, it sounds nuts. It has become a sort of security blanket to me. But one day off will do me good I think. And it is not like I will be laying on the couch eating bonbons all day ……. I have plenty of active rest things to do.

So right now I think I will have breakfast out on the deck, a nice cup of tea, and wait for the Hubs to wake up.

I have an idea for tomorrow morning that was inspired by Syl. I will blog all about it tomorrow ! Have a great Saturday !

Another Busy Saturday

Posted by Susan on May 16, 2009

What a day ! I am still doing laundry and it is already 6pm ! We did some errands today since the weather was pretty grey and threatening rain any minute. We ended up going to an Odd Lot’s store and I stocked up on some snacks . I always buy my snacks there because the prices cannot be beat ! Less than hald the super market prices ! I get 100 calorie snacks there for practically nothing ! We go once a month and stock up.

Then we went to Target to get my 8 year old niece Katelynn a new bike . She loves it , but as of yet , does not know how to ride a 2 wheeler , so my husband (saint that he is ) gave lessons for a few hours today !

She’s getting there …….but still needs a few more lessons . Our hope is that we can get her riding , get Matt’s bike fixed up , and get me a bike, so we can do some of the New England Rail Trails this summer . It would be a great way to spend a Saturday. Pack a lunch and spend the day riding ! It’s a good way for us to get a workout in and also to tire out the kid !!!!
When I am finally done with all of my household chores , I will shower , and relax for the night !
