June 21, 2010 - Happy 1st day of Summer
Monday, June 21, 2010
Had another great weekend, and last week I did great - especially with my exercise. I got in a lot of walking, one day at the gym and some bicycling riding plus tried a new yoga dvd. I am really proud of myself. This weekend was fairly busy, so I did not get a bike ride in, but did some walking and lots of house cleaning yesterday. We visited a horse ranch on Saturday for their annual fundraiser. I used to volunteer there, but it is about 30 miles out of town, so its difficult to get too. But, I did get to love on some horses, I really miss it. A lot of these horses can never be ridden again and some are learning to trust people again, but they are now in a wonderful and loving environment. So, if I can hug-a-horse and get some affection in return - its all good! That evening we went to his sisters house for dinner with his family. Had a really nice time and did not get home until late. Sunday was father's day, so we met my dad and my brother and his kids for breakfast. Then later in the day, my sweetie and I ended up having dinner with my parents and then he took my dad to go look at an old tractor. It was a nice day. We capped it off by going to a friends house that I am looking after, feeding her kitties and watering the garden. We hung out for over an hour. Did not get home until dark thirty - then its time to get ready for bed and another week at work.
My stress level has been really good and I know its the exercise that is helping me so much. Plus, I'm working on letting go, not trying to worry so much about all the little details. It seems to be working.
