Yesterday we went out to the pup's graves and put spring flowers on them and grabbed my cousin to take him to this antique toy show that was in town. We took pics with the people all dressed up but I was disappointed with the freak to geek ratio. Things like that are more about people watching though the boys did love seeing toys from their childhood. It wasn't really a chick thing but it was better than sitting at home on our butts. There was a slave Princess Leia that was so pale I think we all temporarily went blind. Then we took him for a scoop of gourmet ice cream he never would've had, went to these condos that were half a mil (priced right in the right economy but this isn't it) and then went to the botanical gardens, another place he'd never been in his 20 some years. So he got a little broadening of horizons which is kind of our hope when we take him out and about. He's a country boy through and through but it's never bad to get a little culture every now and then! ;-)
We had about a 6 hour day and spent about 4 of them lollygagging around but man does that lollygagging add up on your joints and muscles! We had to stock up on fruits mid-grocery haul so we got watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, clementines, apples and lettuce for the Mr. By the time we got home, we were dragging ass BIG TIME. We could barely walk anymore but knew that Atletica was on the schedule. This night, of all nights, would've been the night we would've said "let's skip." Moving around was difficult enough but doing 4 rounds of this torture just didn't seem in the cards. But we did it...well, we did the first 2 rounds because at that point, we'd both reached failure and the form was getting really bad. 25 minutes and 640 calories later, we were done. I made whole wheat spaghetti and garlic bread and sucked down a ton of water. So my water was really good yesterday (though probably due to dehydration!) and the fiber was decent for a weekend at 28g. The Mr cut up my melons (that sounded bad) and then we collapsed on the couch for the rest of the night, fell asleep on the couch and were upstairs by 11:40pm (early for me) and slept like rocks all night.
This morning I feel like I was dropped out of a building and I think there might be some ibuprofen in my future to get through tonight's workout which is about the only way I'm getting through an hour of Tae Bo. Thankfully tomorrow is a rest day so we can fully recoup and be rarin' to go for the rest of the week. Time to get the orange roughy out of the freezer and start thawing for dinner. I hope everyone is ready for a great week!
