I blew my calories. But I was ACTIVE everyday! For that, I am ecstatic!!!
Friday, I went to the Nature Center down the road from me and hiked for an hour. Then, that night, we kicked off the "summer" by swimming at my brother's pool. I dragged my teenage (very static) daughter with me and she actually said that I need to drag her to the pool more because that is what she loves to do for exercise. (Can we say VICTORY!?)
Saturday I hauled my hiney out of bed and went back the the Nature Center where I played "do not go toward the parking lot" at every intersection I came across. Which resulted in a very long hike (105min). It was awesome! Hot, humid, and awesome! There is something about trees, leaves, wood, mud, flowers, grass, sun, shade, that gets me movin'!
That afternoon I had to be up at church for a small stage "acting" bit I was participating in for every service this weekend. I got to pretend to be at a backyard BBQ during the opening song. It was a blast! I was up a church from 2pm til 6:30pm Sat and 8am to noon on Sunday. The truly best part was that I got to spend time with my friends' 4 kids (who were on stage with me). Good times!
After church Sunday I worked then went to a graduation party and a Memorial Day party. More swimming. Oh and may I add, swimming at my brothers is not a passive thing. We always end up in a round of crazy "volleyball" that lasts FOR EVER!
Monday I went to Taste of Cincinnati with my boyfriend. Yes, I ate food that I would not choose while trying to lose weight. But we were there early and walked the length of the event several times waiting for the booths to open. Best thing I ate was the Stuffed Chicken Amore. (cream cheese, mushrooms and spinach rolled in the chicken, with a creamy tomato sauce on top) Glad it was just taste, and; glad I can not remember the name of the restaurant it came from. That night I dragged the teenager back for swimming at my brother's!
Sorry to bore you with my laundry list of my weekend events. But I need to capture the fitness I did in order to not beat myself up for eating over my calories.
