Weekend Wrap-Up

Another Sunday evening... Where do these weekends go?! It seems like they (sometimes) take a while to get here and they fly by. Although, for me, even the week days have been going by fairly quickly recently.  Sometimes I wish time would slow down a bit (how 'bout during those weekends?!).  I was listening to the radio on Saturday and Tim McGraw's "My Next 30 Years"  came on. I realized that the song applies to my life now. Yikes! Where did the time go? I'm already 31.25. It's insane how fast the first 30 went by. Sometimes I feel like it was just yesterday that I was in high school. Wow...!

Anyway, the weekend...Right. It was another great weekend; beautiful outside too! 

I worked out early Saturday morning. It was nice to get it done and out of the way early, to have the rest of the day to goof off. I was planning to get at least a walk in today but there just wasn't enough time, and other things took priority. I suppose that's okay. It was the first since last week Monday, so I guess I can accept it....Even if I did want to workout.

I really do not enjoy missing workouts. I almost feel lost not having done one.  Maybe the fact that I worked out early yesterday has something to do with it. It feels a bit like I took two days off. I really miss working out on days that I don't...Did I say that yet?  Even if it's just something light like a walk (okay, know that includes at least a little running), I love it. I love being outside. I love the sunshine and the fresh air. I also love my BR workouts. I haven't done one of those since Thursday. I feel like I've been away for ages. I don't feel sore anymore. I miss that. When I feel sore I know I've worked my muscles. When I don't feel sore I feel like a gelatinous blob. In my mind I even look different when I've missed a good BR day. I know that's not true; I haven't changed that much that fast. I know muscle doesn't deteriorate over a couple days, but I like knowing I worked mine.  I need some ab, thigh, arm, and shoulder burn in order to feel like I'm working my body.

Yes, Monday's routine will most definitely include a BR workout. So excited!! Bring on the buuuurn!

Eating wasn't too bad this weekend. I indluged on Saturday night and a bit today, but I didn't eat out of my ranges so that was good. I ate different quality (unhealthy) foods which resulted in less quantity, which I don't like. I'd prefer to eat healthier things more often. I hold the belief that this keeps my body running better.

The things that I ate weren't great, but I didn't over-eat, so I'll deal with it. I enjoyed sharing some appetizers while watching basketball on Friday night. I even had a couple light beers, which doesn't happen often. I didn't drink to the "drunk point" (or even "buzzed")  because, well, I just don't do that anymore. I also had to drive, which I don't like doing even after a couple beers over a period of time. Even if they don't seem to effect me, I just don't like doing it. Plus I see drinking more than a casual drink or two now and then, as a big waste of calories. Plus, it's not a healthy practice and I prefer to be healthy.

Indulgence...This happens every now and then. It's allowed. I eat healthy most of the time, so I can handle a splurge now and then. I can definitely feel the effects of sodium though, which I don't like. I can't wait to get that out of my body.

I'm ready to start a new, healthy week! I'm excited to get this sodium flushed out of my system, to eat healthy, and to workout!
