Why Do Weekends Go By So Fast?

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Good grief! This weekend has just flown by! It's been a really productive and nice weekend, though. As you know from yesterday's blog, I got a lot of gardening done.

Today, I gave myself a break and relaxed a while. I made breakfast (oatmeal!) and lounged around until about 11:30 a.m., and then did about 1/2 hour of hilling up in the garden. I also, drum roll please, did a full 30 minutes on my Treadclimber today! Woohoo! After that, I went to visit my friend, Trisha, for coffee, and the obligatory Walgreen's stop for dog treats.

The day was perfect - sunny and mild, low humidity, high of 81 degrees.....Tomorrow, well, high of 68 degrees, and a low of 31 degrees early Tuesday morning - Guess I'll be getting out the sheets to cover the plants! The garden will pretty much have to fend for itself - too big to cover - but most of the veggies are frost resistant. If I lose anything, well, that the risk you take in Florida (or anywhere else for that matter)! emoticon

I made a lovely rare roast beef for dinner with mashed potatoes and green beans - My son loves Sunday dinner! Yes, I have managed to stay within my calorie range again today, too. I also discovered a really yummy treat at Walgreen's - Cocoa Dusted Almonds! 150 calories for 1/4 cup - crunchy almonds with just a taste of dark chocolate! I have some snack portion containers and will be portioning out these for snacks this week! emoticon

I best get at it - I've got a bunch to do before bedtime tonight. First thing is another glass of water! emoticon

    GOOD job on the exercise and tracking! I have been chained to my desk doing payouts for the December sales. Extremely annoying to have to do paperwork on my one day off...but I'm happy we are busy now. Keep at it..we'll support each other this year and accomplish our goals!

    Have a great week my friend! You can do anything you set your pretty little head to!
