This weekend was another good, relaxing weekend. On Friday I worked out for a little over an hour and that was the extent of my excitement for the night. Because it was a little later, I didn't even make dinner. My boyfriend at a chicken sandwich (you know, those breaded patty style unhealthy sandwiches) and I had a lightened up grilled cheese. Easy night. We just hung out at home and watched some TV (Wrestling, of course). We went to bed pretty early (I guess we must have been tired!) on Friday night which meant that we were up early on Saturday.
I think we woke up at 6:00 and lazed in bed for a bit. We were up at 6:30. I thought maybe we would go back to bed, but we didn't. We were both wide away (probably because we had gone to bed at 10 on Friday night). We watched this cheesy show my boyfriend has found and just kind of hung out. I drank some water and after I had time to hydrate a little, I did my first workout of the day. I did some weight training and cardio DVDs (CLX and TF) for over an hour of work total. My boyfriend was napping when I got done, so I showered and had a protein shake. I went to the store and got a few groceries, but otherwise we didn't do much other than spend the day together at home. I did my second workout (45 minutes on the treadmill and the TIU full body workout) and then showered just in time for my cousins to get there. I invited them over for dinner and to hang out for a bit because I hadn't seen them in a while. Naturally my cousin had Little Miss with her, and her younger (almost 13 year-old) sister was with her too. Dinner wasn't extravagant; BLTs and chips at the boyfriend's request. Later in the night when he was hungry again I also made him a grilled cheese...I guess he was in sandwich mode because I had a grilled cheese on Friday night. We all watched some football before the girls headed home. We watched more TV and I think we went to bed by 11:30.
On Sunday we actually slept-in a little (if 8:00 is sleeping in!). Again, we spent part of the morning being lazy, before I got started on some household tasks. I did some cleaning, including steam cleaning some carpets, and laundry. Then I ran out and got pizza (his request because it was "football Sunday" - gosh he is spoiled!). I decided that it would be my splurge day, although I stayed within my calories because, other than a protein shake, all we ate was pizza and bread sticks. Oh and I had a small salad with my pizza to get some veggies in the mix. I wasn't even that hungry - probably because I was drinking water like it was going out of style! I guess I had to flush some of that sodium out, and better sooner than later! I watched one football game and then I did a workout. I did another CLX workout followed by half an hour on the tready. It was a more typical workout day for me. I generally try to workout for around an hour (usually a little more). Saturday's two-a-day thing is not something that happens frequently...But maybe once a week wouldn't be so bad. 3
According to my half marathon training plan and my CLX plan, today is SUPPOSED to be a rest day. I'm probably not actually going to do much resting. In fact, I think I will do the TIU workout for the day and maybe some time on the tready. We'll see what I have time for... I have to make dinner for my parents, eat, and shower before it's my Monday date night with my boyfriend. Luckily I was out of work on time, didn't have many errands to run, and as soon as I publish this, I should be ready to go! If the TIU workout doesn't take very long, I'll do at least 30 minutes on the tready. I don't think the TIU workout will take long because I do not have my weights with me so I have to use my Mom's wimpy (for me) five pounders! Although I prefer to lift heavy, I suppose light is better than nothing....?
I hope you had a great weekend and that your week is fantastic!
