I had a great weekend..even if it was a little indulgent. 🙂 How was yours?
Friday, Dave and I went to a friend’s house for dessert. Yum! Warm brownies, ice cream, and fudge sauce.
Saturday was full of errands, cleaning, and food prep for this week. Dave painted our porch and put up a new pole and some other things – it looks nice!Friday night we did a little shopping for him, because I had a Kohl’s coupon and he needed shorts (Why he can’t wear ONE outfit to paint in, I don’t know. Instead he gets paint on EVERYTHING!). We came home and I made us peach “milk shakes” (I called them this so Dave would be excited, but really, they were smoothies with greek yogurt. LOL)
Sunday Dave went to a baseball game with his dad, and I spent 2 hours outside weeding flower beds and breaking up the dirt in my garden – again. The clay in the soil here is obnoxious…it all seals together instantly! Sunday evening I washed and waxed my car by hand, and then we went to another friend’s house for homemade ice cream.
Busy, yet successful, weekend. 🙂
No “specific” exercise other than walking the dog, but Sunday was definitely a ‘full body workout’ kind of day in the yard.
Onto Monday – which isn’t heinous yet (as I type this at 10am). LOL
I’m in a weird food mood here lately. Been eating mini-meals. It might be because it’s starting to get warm, and I hate feeling ‘full’ when it’s hot. Or maybe it’s just a phase. Who knows.
Breakfast 1 – 8:30 a.m.
Red Berry, milk, local strawberries and banana
Breakfast 2 – 10:30 a.m.
More Red Berry, milk, local strawberries and banana (I basically just ate half of what I packed for each)
Lunch 1 – 12:00 p.m.
½ a ham, mustard, lettuce and provolone sandwich, half my veggies (which are grape tomatoes, red/orange peppers, carrots, celery)
Lunch 2 – 2:00 p.m.
The other half of the above
Pre-Gym Snack – 3:45 p.m.
Walnut and Date Kind bar; tangelo
20 minutes of moderate/high intensity on the elliptical to get all warmed up
Gentle stretching for my piriformis/hamstrings (I’ve slacked on this and they’re getting tight again)

Came home, slugged back a small cup of chocolate milk, and headed out to walk the pup (who, incidentally, was relieved Dave and I went back to work today…she was beat last night from all the outside/activity time this weekend!)
It’s Monday, which means DH cooks and makes us steak…and serves me entirely too much food. And, sadly, I eat most of it, because I just came off a workout and HELLO! I AM STARVING! Teehee
Paintin’ my toes (Bright pink! Wee!), watching Chuck with Dave, and blogging this post 🙂
