NSV weekend

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Happy Sunday to all

Weekends fly by so fast huh?! I'm not ready for Monday!

Friday, zero energy after work. I drove home thinking about comfy clothes and the remote. I was listening to some Spark People radio podcasts on the way home and heard spark member ~indygirl, whose blogs I have been following for several months. If you don't know her story, I suggest you stop by her page and read some blogs. I dare you to then come up with an excuse for not getting healthy

Shortly after hearing her interview, I saw a license plate that read "psych up". So that was it, I got home and I immediately changed into running clothes and took off. I hadn't run all week. I was sore from last weekend's warrior dash for a couple days, then just got busy.

I was huffin and puffin. I told myself to forget about time and just keep running, no matter how slow. And boy did I slow down at times but I did not walk. I actually felt pretty good the last mile and only ended up two minutes over my best five-mile time! I took that as a win. Then I took the dog for her one-mile walk.

Saturday, in addition to walking my four legged friend, I went for a 40-minute interval training walk. This will knock off a square on my health challenge card for June at work. Victory! Then some yoga and very nearly fell asleep on the living room floor!

Today was the best day of the weekend. DH and I went for a bicycle ride around some trails near our house and into a neighboring suburb for lunch. We stopped at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I skipped the margarita, had an ice tea, sat on my hands after eating only five chips, then gave half of my lunch to DH. So unlike me! Score!!

At one point on the way home, I pulled over to drink some water. Here was my big moment..... DH said " I can tell you are in better shape, you never used to keep pace with me like that before."

HEAR THE ANGELS SING! He is not an active guy yet he's lean and muscular. He has not commented on my weight loss or running accomplishments. He would be fine if I was still chunky and sitting on the couch with him. He wants what makes me happy. Today he sounded proud of me and impressed which made me feel wonderful!

So that's the weekend that was. Looks like rain is coming. Time to relax before getting back to the grind of work tomorrow.

I hope everyone had great moments this weekend. Lets make it a good week!

    Thanks for sharing. I think that was the perfect weekend and the unsolicited compliment from hubby just the crown on it all. Moving our bodies is a privilege.
