I spent a day with a girlfriend who wavers in and out the dark regions of depression. I got her out of her housecoat and into 'outdoor' clothes. We took a trip to Michael's to look at paint brushes and canvases. She didn't want to buy anything, but it was a positive foray into the neighbourhood.
Did I wear my pedometer? Nope. I just tried to balance my sit-down hobbies and some get-up-and-go activities.
The grass got cut. Laundry washed and dried... even got put away!!
I made a healthy salmon dinner, acorn squash and green beans on the side. We invited our neighbour over to share the meal. I just knew the excursion would exhaust her too much to make a healthy choice. She loved the company and we got a charge out of watching her take on more calories than she usually does. :)
Oh, did I mention that yesterday had been grocery shopping day? That's why I had inspiration in the kitchen last night.
I treated myself to a video evening to do knitting until bedtime. I love watching the campy fairy tale, The Princess Bride. Who couldn't love a farmer boy who keeps saying, "As you wish"!!!???
