The Weekend Re-Cap!

Happy Monday, All! I can't believe it's time, once again, to recap my weekend. Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

Friday I went home and the man was already there, cleaning dog poop up since the snow is melting and showing where the naughty dogs went when they couldn't (or wouldn't?) go to their designated area. He got most of it cleaned up before I got home and when I got there, nicely allowed me to do my workout without having to participate in this round of poop clean-up.

So I did a spinning HIIT workout that was pretty cool. I'm not sure it was as intense as I thought it might be but that's alright. It was some cardio and the higher intensity moments (bumped the resistance way up and went as fast as I could - NOT fast, actually) really worked my legs.  Then I did some weight training - arms and glutes. After my workout I showered and got dinner ready...Well, mine anyway, which was just a salad. I had originally planned on going out of town for work and was going to bring home some Buffalo Wild Wings wings for him but since that got cancelled I didn't. Apparently wings sounded good so I picked up take out from a local place for him - hot wings...Not the same but at least he got some wings! I ate a salad  (spinach, strawberries, blueberries, a little feta, and a few walnuts, with a light raspberry vinaigrette). We watched wrestling and spent the evening goofing around.

Saturday was... A loss of a day, basically. We went to a St. Patrick's Day parade around noon and proceeded to do nothing but consume adult beverages and eat until about 8:00. Apparently the beers went down really well for me (rare) because my parents had to pick us up that evening. YUP. I.  Got. Drunk.  That does not happen often. At all. They took us out to their house, where we both feel asleep (passed out, some may say) on the living room floor around 9:00.  I woke up around 12:30 and suggested we go sleep in an actual bed, so we did. That is a pretty rare instance for us, but it was a fun day full of celebration with some family and friends. Good times, for sure!!

Because we went to sleep so early on Saturday night we were up early on Sunday. I woke up for the first time around 4:30, then we were both up off and on from then until almost 8:00 when we decided to get up. We went back to my house where our big plans of doing more packing and moving some stuff to the new house did not happen. Instead we spent the morning watching two movies (well, I watched part of the second one then showered and went out to get groceries, gas, and finally pizza). Other than grocery shopping, doing about six loads of laundry, dishes, and cleaning, we didn't do much yesterday.  Actually I guess I got a decent amount of stuff done around the house so that's not too bad. Saturday and Sunday definitely did not go as planned but we had a good time doing something different so I'd call it a good weekend.

Now I'm just sitting at my parents' with my sick Mother trying to decide if I should cook or not. I don't want to make her feel any worse than she does but then I suppose my Dad would like to eat something. I guess I'll get an answer out of her eventually. Today is supposed to be my "rest day" from training (schedule starts again this week) but since I didn't work out on Saturday or Sunday I will most likely at least do a little something... Maybe just a walk and some weights for a bit. I was supposed to have a meeting this evening which got cancelled which would've been great with the rest day. Now that I have some time I might as well do something. BUT then again I could get over to the boyfriend's a little earlier if I don't rest.  Most importantly I would really like to stick to my schedule. If I don't rest today I'd have to pick another day which would throw my schedule off-track. And I do not want to do that. I guess I have to look at it as today being a fresh start with a new schedule. What I did or did not do over the weekend really has nothing to do with this training schedule.... And training is my focus right now.

But we'll see...I'll continue my internal debate about whether or not to cook first. Then I'll debate that.

Hope you had a funtastic weekend!!!
