NOTE TO SELF: Reread this on weekends!
Sunday, February 20, 2011
I thought this weekend was very successful. I was buzzed that I got in my cardio and strength training right away this morning and yesterday morning. (thank you Fit and Firm SparkDVD)
This is especially a big deal for me, because I had everything weighing against me this weekend. Even regular weekends make it hard for me to do the "routine". This weekend had all sorts of added things that could have kept me from exercising!
But actually I feel really good today. And I think it is all because I did that 25 minutes of cardio and ST DVD the last few days! I think I am on the path to conquering weekends!
BTW: My family gathering went well.
Check out my party CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY TORTE dessert:
I got it from the local newspaper. It didn't turn out exactly how I thought it should, but those pictures are usually misleading. I had some issues with it trying to "melt" after I turned in unto the plate, because those vanilla wafers just couldn't support the weight, so I had to wrap the sides in wax paper, plastic, and tape just to keep it together.
That made it look quite strange for a few hours...
Oh boy was it delicious! My visiting brother wanted the recipe. We also ate salsa pork chops and chili bean corn and vege/turkey sausage gumbo.
And bonus, my hair looked really nice today:
Thank you weekend exercises. I think you made all the difference. OK, so maybe you didn't make my hair look nice, but you did make ME feel pretty good.
