I usually get up when I wake up, make a pot of tea and take it back to bed and read my book for a while. Sunday is the only day of the week I don't have to get up and be somewhere, so I like to treat myself with a leisurely start.
Not today however! I had friends staying Friday and Saturday night, which meant I couldn't go to Taichi yesterday morning and I didn't get to wake up in my own time today. But it was nice catching up with them so that was a bonus. They have gone off to do their thing today, so I have made a fresh cup of tea, and have taken myself back to bed to relax! The cats think it's GREAT!
Last week was a really busy one - lots on at work (short staffed, budget time, planning presentations for management meeting) and I had lots of social things on as well, so was only at home, Monday and Friday nights, and I was knackered! So not a single walk after work was done, and I couldn't go to Taichi class on Thursday. I did however do my workouts before work every day, so that was a good thing.
This week is not looking much better! I have a 3 day management meeting, with early starts, so don't even know if I will have then energy for the morning work-outs or the time for the walks in the evening! But I think I will need to do at least one of them to keep my sanity! Tuesday night I have guests staying, Wednesday and Thursday I am out with the management team for dinner, so once again, it's looking like Monday and Friday nights will be the only ones I have at home!
Despite all the busy-ness, I'd really like my weight to be under 70kg when I weigh myself tomorrow morning. I'm not holding my breath, but am sick of hovering at just over 70kg. I did manage a couple (or was it just one?) of under 70kg weigh-ins before I went on holiday, but I'm starting to think they were an aberration or just wishful thinking! I feel like if I can just get under 70kg it will all fall into place and I will get where I want to be.
So today I will finish my cup of tea, paint the back fence (it's been on the to-do list for a while), it's a nice sunny day with a slight breeze, so perfect. Wash all the bed linen and remake the beds in readiness for the guests on Tuesday, go for a walk down to the beach and back or maybe try a new loop, deliver the sour dough bread I made yesterday (I made 6 loaves - 2x pain de campagne, 2x seeded pain au levain, and 2x plain pain au levain) to friends, and just chill out. Nice :o)
Happy Sunday everyone!
