I decided to do another weekend recap. I have a feeling I may do these more & more on Mondays since my weekends are filled & there really just isn’t time to post.
Since I work 4 days my weekend starts on Fridays – don’t be jealous! 😛 It’s seriously the only perk I have at my job & I’m only blessed with this because they’re too cheap & enjoy not having to pay me full-time, but enough griping about work – I could go on & on – especially today this miserable Monday.
Back to my wonderful weekend… Friday was AMAZING! The weather was in the high 70’s, which is insane for mid March. I almost wasn’t going to go to the gym, but knowing I couldn’t go on Sunday due to a class (more on that later…) I decided to go. Well I have no clue what go into me…the nice weather, a new playlist or my tempeh bacon breakfast, who knows, but I decided to not bother with the c25k & just run. What a great run! I did a 5 minute warm up & then just ran…and ran…and ran…until I hit 3.1 miles. I did it! I actually ran a 5k! I was pumped & immediate text a friend while on the treadmill doing my cool down – I even took a picture of the treadmill summary! After that I came home, grabbed a quick bite to eat (teriyaki tofu & salad), then off to the local ecology site to take Natie to see the animals. Rich is home on Fridays so it was a perfect family day for us. Natie had a great time. He walked the entire park & was amazed by the llamas. He wasn’t a fan of the goats until I was trying to get a picture of him & Daddy looking at them & well, my back was to the goats & before I knew it I was being eaten alive…HA! Ok, it wasn’t that bad, but he came up from behind & had half my head of hair in its mouth. I had to pull it out – Rich laughed, I freaked, Natie now loves goats…go figure! I finished the night off with a trip to the chiropractor & then to pick up the long-awaited Magic Bullet (I was the last person alive to get one I think…)
Saturday was another great weather day. Natie was climbing the walls & I knew I needed to take him out to “explore”. I wanted to go somewhere comfortable & since he had such a great time at the Ecology site I decided to take him again. He walked the whole thing again. Natie got to see a hawk eat a rat (eww, but cool!), and also a buffalo do laps in his “area”. I was honestly fascinated by that! Soon it was time to go home, give Natie a bath & then off to bed. It allowed a nice night together with Rich while we enjoyed a glass of one of our favorite wines!
Sunday, my other gym day was a no gym day. I had a quick morning with the boys before heading out to an intro to photography class I signed up for. What a great class! Just to have a better understanding of my camera was worth it. I wanted to go out & shoot the world, but once I got home & saw my little man I knew I couldn’t deprive him of another day out. We headed to a playground where he had some fun, but preferred to run the fields with a pine cone in hand. He also met a little boy who was only 2 weeks older than him and they had a good time together.
All in all it was a great weekend with WW. Everything was tracked & I had a good look at the scale today. (still staying below the 200’s). BUT I’ve come to realize I’m a stress eater. I never was…it was actually the opposite for me. If I was stressed I used to starve myself. Now, I eat. I know I’m not hungry, but I pick & pick & eventually inhale food. I’m not sure what it was about today…the rainy (and yes, snowy) weather, the fact that I was at work where I’m over worked & under appreciated, the fact that Natie is getting sick – nebulizer treatments again, or the fact my wonderful weekend had to come to an end and how much I miss my boys. I’m not sure, but I’m going to find out & figure out a way to change it.
