Lots of food and good company...

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Had brunch with my family. Well, it was supposed to be brunch, but we didn't eat until after 12, so it was probably more like lunch. I hadn't eaten as I expected it to be brunch, so I tracked that as breakfast. There was a LOT of food. We intended to keep it simple, but people kept requesting more things, so there ended up being more food than usual. Then I went to my friend Jen's parents' house for dinner with her family. They served prime rib. Yum! They also had veggies and homemade challa bread, and a lovely trifle for dessert. Cooper couldn't go with me for the second meal, so he went home with my parents and my dad watched him for me. I am having a light supper and a small snack or two to round out my day's food. I don't mind the small talk and silly conversations, but sitting here just me and the dog is a relief, after such a crowded day!

Even with all the food and requisite socializing I still managed to take Coop for two medium long walks and one short walk. I also did one SP video. I really like Coach Nicole. I had thought about going to the gym today (they were open until 1pm), but I went early for brunch and helped cook instead. I will go to the gym tomorrow. I am committing to going. The weather is supposed to be back to cold and yucky tomorrow, but I am not going to let that stop me. Nope, I am going to go and get my sweat on!

    Sounds like you had a busy day. I find that when there are a bunch of people, I start to wnat to just go home to my nice quiet apartment. I guess I am a bit of a recluse? Hope you get to the gym today and do a full workout. Havea great day,

    we can't function for very long outside of community- but I'm with you when you talk about appreciating the quiet moments and solitude within a busy day. So glad you enjoyed your time with firends and family

    Good to balance the walk and still enjoy the holiday with family and friends. We had a beautiful day here also, so I was able to get my walk in this afternoon before our dinner with family.

    Sounds like a lovely Easter Sunday!

I'm headed back to the gym tomorrow too; bike class and Pilates. I know they will kick my bootie, as usual!

Oh, have to edit the comment to say again how much I love your new picture! You are emoticon
