As you have noticed, I don't really like to turn on my laptop on the weekends. It's my one fight for a relaxing weekend. I know if I turn it on, I will most likely start looking at something that deals with work and I get hooked. So most of the time you will not see me on the weekends, I hope you don't think I've gone on a run and never come back. I'm still here.
This weekend was amazing! The weather was unlike any other January I remember. We have unseasonably warm weather and I will never complain about that. Usually we have a few feet of snow but in 2012, nope that's not the case. Hooray! That only meant one thing, the furry baby got her dream come true and has been enjoying 2-3 mile walks in the afternoons. She loves it! She may be less than 10 pounds but the girl has some unknown strength and power when it comes to walking. So, that's what we did. The husband, furry baby and I went on a walk on Friday and Saturday for workouts. It wasn't what I had hoped for as in running, but it was a great workout and really uplifting to see the sunshine. On Sunday the husband wanted to get to the art museum so we spent three hours walking/standing looking at amazing art pieces. Boy were we tired after, our feet were killing us. I guess for me it was because I wore heals instead of my normal everyday wear of running shoes at the gym.
As far as food, I am ashamed I found a bag of Holiday Skittles. I ate them like candy, oh wait that's what they are... I'm saddened that I haven't worked completely through my urge to finish of something in our cabinets - I have an issue with overeating. I'm working on it though and it probably could have been much worse. I went through the kitchen this weekend looking for candy and other junk food to send off with the husband to work. That way, I won't have the temptations in the household for me to eat. That's my little trick, no junk food in the house so that I won't eat it. If we want a little something, we go out and grab an individual sized something and eat it right then. Unfortunately this bag was from our holiday trips to the family hometown.
Other than overeating the entire weekend (boy was I hungry all the time), I am happy that we got a little workout in and felt the wonderful sunshine.
Here are some motivational things I love today:
