This was such an amazing weekend!! Not because I went anywhere exciting, but because I had absolutely no plans!! You know those times when you can get up whenever you can (or at 5 am since that is when Seamus wants to get up) or go back to bed for a few more hours. You can do whatever you want in any sequence you want. Since Friday was a monsoon it was a movie night with Seamus. I watched the movie People Like Us, which was ok.
Saturday: I got up fairly early thanks to Seamus but I got a chance to read a little bit of my book and drink my coffee.
I was reading the Nicholas Sparks book called The Best of Me. Let me tell you I am not going to read another one of his books! Seriously why must he end every book on a sad depressing note?! Over it! I got all my house cleaning done early and went grocery shopping, glamorous I know. I did a quick circuit workout that was tough!
Then I took poor Seamus for a walk. I drive by this waterfall every time I go grocery shopping and I love it! I love being near water no matter where. It doesn’t really seem that far when you are in the car. It ended up being about 5 miles. When we got to the waterfall we popped a squat on the grass and looked out at the water. Or at least I did and Seamus panted and rested. You know he is tired when he doesn’t stop every few feet. I also had to carry him when we got to the small bridge. He got a little freaked and laid down.
When we got home Seamus took a short nap and I mowed the lawn. The only downside to living near a lake is that every year I get frogs in my yard. Those things are ugly. I tend to leave them alone but I have put a few back into the lake.
Sunday: I woke up Sunday full of energy and started out with a great breakfast. It was a low carb wrap with natural peanut butter, sugar-free strawberry preserves, 1/4 of a banana, 2 sliced strawberries and 2 TBSP of gluten free granola. I was a perfect breakfast to keep my energy up to go hiking.
I love that the trails are so close to home and it is a really good workout. The trails were a little water-logged after at the rain we have had recently but not too bad. The trails are really well-marked, and they have maps at a few check points though I haven’t used a map in a while.
What did you do this weekend? Hopefully it was restful!
