A busy day...

Saturday, July 06, 2013

I did not fit a run into my day today. I did get three short dog walks, one longer walk by myself, rebounding and 2 SP videos. I also had lunch with my parents and brother, cleaned up after, dropped my mom at the used bookstore, went and trimmed my friend's cat's claws, and ran a bunch of errands for myself and my parents. I got all my running around done in two hours, and was only 15 minutes late picking my mom back up from the bookstore. (Yes, she happily spent 2 hours there!)

I ate too much fat today, but it was all so tasty I can't regret it. We had spareribs and rice, with a salad made from fresh picked lettuce, as well as fresh picked peas for lunch. I didn't have much of the ribs, but I enjoyed what I did eat. One of my stops today was the grocery store, so I have lots of yummy food on hand now. So dinner was a half pint of raspberries and a salad made with leftover lettuce from lunch with watercress added, and topped with feta, tomatoes and croutons, and lightly dressed. I also bought cherries, so I am having some of those with one of my snacks tonight.

So I might not have managed to run, but it was a busy day. I will try and get to that run tomorrow. Sun/Tues/Thurs/Sat works better for me this week for running anyways. If it is still raining tomorrow I will still run, as I enjoy running in Summer rain. Nature's air conditioning!

    a busy day, yes, but a day of so many accomplishments and time well spent. so many people are 'busy' and get nothing done. Have a great week

    Glad you are cooling off a bit.

Run or not, sounds like you had a great day. I'm certain you will get your run in soon.

    It's been hot. I've been getting out by 6:30 for short runs - 2 miles. I don't think I'd be able to drag myself out to run later in the day.

    Eh gad, your busy days are BUSY. And I have to tell you that one of the things I admire about you is your service to others - you always mention all the things you have done (like its no big deal!) for parents, neighbors, friends. You are a good person.

    Your food description sounds delicious! Kudos to you for only having a small amount of ribs!

I love fresh cherries as a snack :)

I'm sure all that running around can count as your exercise for the day. It was kind of tiring just reading about all the running around you did today!
