Letter to Sunday...

Sunday, September 15, 2013


So many things were supposed to happen today and yet, as a weekend day, you drag me down again.

Why is it so hard to make you and Saturday fit in so well with the rest of my week? Why does it have to be so hard? Saturday played fairly nice. I got all my steps and then some in, though I have no way to really tell WHAT all I ate in calories since I know not a single brand from the food at the Corn Maze. I drank LOADS of water, at least it felt like it, but I know I got my goal of 10 in. I spent time with my kids going through mazes, petting/holding animals and jumping on ginormous mounds of... rubber? IDK what it was, but the kids loved it. So, Saturday played ok, aside from the extra cookies.

Sunday... You didn't start so well. I didn't get in my walk with my bestie because I had to do the baking for the potluck we were going to. Pulled out the recipe and low and behold! We need eggs! Which we didn't have!!! My hubby went to go get them, but took about an hour for him to return! AHHH!

I made these delicious pumpkin tarts and bites... and a few bites for me since I was the cook...
Should have just kept my fingers out because 1 is just never enough! Figures! emoticon

Running late to the potluck by an hour! I HATE being late! But we weren't the only ones! We get there, and there is not only our pumpkin dessert, but a HUGE pumpkin pie, a triffle, some store bought meatballs and apple crisp! I knew I should have at least had a good tuna sandwich at home! At least there was a salad!

Again, scored all my water and then some for the day. I planned on a walk with my bestie after 7, but her company was still there. Maybe tomorrow.

Of course, I couldn't just sit on my butt after sitting most of the day and being no where NEAR my 10,000 steps for the day. Off to the media room for some Zumba! I did not just 1 program, but TWO! That's right! TWO! I'm beat and more sweaty than I have been in a long time. I also did one extra song just to try a different part of the game. It wasn't better than the class ones.

So now, I'm blogging about my crappy relationship with you, Sunday! Typically, I'm fighting off the WHOLE weekend, but you.... you were just being plain rotten to me, considering I STILL have not hit 10,000!!!! I have to run my stairs a few times I think!

Sunday, we really need to learn to get a long a lot better. I want you to be a great part of my life, of every week I have coming! You and I, we need to go from Slacker to Super much more quickly than you are allowing. Please help me find a happy medium!?

Yours Truly,

Learning Fitness & Health
Shayla Swallow!

    Isn't it next to impossible to control yourself at a potluck? There's always something that you HAVE to try. Good job on getting your zumba in!
