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 !
