Skechers Shape Ups: Day 4

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Another day that started out with good plans, and ended up otherwise. My exercise today was purely incidental: a few steps here, and a few steps there. I started out at home in my new super-duper flip flops (Reebok Easytone: not so easy on the feet, not so easy on the budget).

I always intended the fancy flip flops for home use only, but they really don't cut it even for that. My feet simply need more support or they hurt. I put on socks and moved up to my Skechers. Ah, relief! I still have them on, and I'm not taking them off until I go to bed. I'm very happy in them.

It's Mothers' Day. The day started out with breakfast in bed: homemade waffles topped with raspberries and (a little bit of) whipped cream, and coffee with milk, cinnamon, and sugar added. I felt so spoiled. I woke up slowly, read my novel for a little bit (Georgette Heyer's "Cotillion," -- brain candy for stressful times). As I started feeling more awake, I started making some cards, thinking I'd make just a few and then go out for a walk.

The walk didn't happen because my stepmother came over and liked the cards so well that she wanted a dozen of the same to give as a gift to her pastor's wife who is graduating with a degree tomorrow (counseling, maybe). That required another trip to the store for supplies, and some more work, and here we are. Time flies.

Fortunately, making cards is sort of therapeutic, and the kids didn't have to be driven anywhere today. Now, on to figure out how to fit exercise in tomorrow.

    Sounds like the shoes are still a hit!

    I think making cards is wonderfully relaxing as well!

    I'm glad you were treated well for Mothers Day, and your kindness in making cards for your stepmother is remarkable. Your exercise plan can always be flexible, with room to take a day for you. Take care...

    Hey, girl, it's Mother's Day. We're allowed to take 1 day for ourselves. I too was going to go out for a short run, but then it rained and the boys made me a super breakfast of bacon and eggs. Then my mom came over, and the boys made me dinner. Who can argue with that. Then it rained again. Tomorrow is another day! The cards you're making must be awesome. Have an awesome week!

    Your cards must be really nice. I didn't get a lot of exercise today, either. Then I remembered that gardening counts as exercise, and I spent 1/2 hour planting hostas in the front yard.
