Not what I had planned...

Friday, June 24, 2016

So, I had planned to workout yesterday. But life sort of went crazy. It was almost comical in the way everything seemed to go wrong or take longer than it should. Actually, it was funny. My boyfriend and I just laughed about it. He certainly appreciated my patience. My Dad dropped my kiddo off at my work yesterday while he was on his way to an event. As he was pulling away he told me he thought he forgot to turn the water off in his kitchen sink so I told him I would go do that for him. But I had to pick up my boyfriend and take my son to his Dad's house. Let me tell you. I got stopped at a train and decided to take Gibson home then come back and get Rick. When I got back Rick wasn't there (his phone is currently on the fritz) so I turned around and went to my house assuming he was there (meaning I drove past my ex's house that I had just been to lol). I horsed around at my house dragging butt to give Rick more time to show up. No dice. So I took off, but 2 blocks down the road I saw his car coming down the side, I turned around a went back, just to discover it wasn't him. So I left the house again.....10 blocks down the street and I passed him headed home. So....I turned around AGAIN. lol. To his credit he jumped right in the car and didn't question me at all. But we got some good laughs out of it. There was a whole lot more that happened, but I will spare you the details. Needless to say I was starving by the time we got home at 9:00! Wow. I got off work at 4!

At my Dad's house though....he has been busy cutting trails for my nieces to ride their dirt bike and had been suggesting we come walk them. Holy cow! I had so much sweat dripping from my everywhere it was insane. It was awesome though. I loved every single minute of it. Except the bugs....I didn't love that. I was so excited to see at the top of the hill a huge berry patch! YAY! So, since I wasn't prepared with water I had a handful of berries instead. Yum.

On the way back home we stopped to see about tires for our new truck. These are BIG tires. And they were in the back of a house used as a shed. The guys sent us over there with the keys and told us to dig them out. Oh my goodness. I don't remember the last time I worked so hard. It was great.

All in all it was a crazy but fun day and I definitely got a heck of a work out it. Go me.

I am so proud of myself for finally getting going again. It has been a long time coming. And I can already tell the difference in my mood and how I feel.

Today I am going to focus on getting in all my water because I've been slacking with that and 12 minutes of exercise tonight.

Rock on lovely Sparkers!

    Sounds like you had some great active events in your evening! What kind of berries did you find? I miss big blackberry patches like the ones that I grew up with!

    Living active really does help the brain and mood! emoticon

    A workout isn't always what you plan, but it sounds like you found one anyway! That is so fun! I love it when that happens!
