Holy Weekend Recap
It was a beautiful day Saturday so when lunch took us close to the family cemetery, we decided to stop by. (So I could pee for the 570th time since I'd chugged 40 oz before 10am and was paying for it.) Thank God the chapel was open!
Since my family are basically plotted out from the front to the back of the cemetery, I asked the Mr if he wanted to walk and he agreed. (Though I don't think he knew he was agreeing to walk the lay of the land. Oops!) As we walked, we admired some of the more ornate headstones.
This Celtic knot cross was one of our favorites. The cemetery tour in Sleepy Hollow, NY gave us a lot of information about headstones symbolism which sadly isn't thought of much these days when we pass. The Celtic knot cross has no beginning and end which is the life interpretation and the smaller Celtic crosses represent everlasting salvation, glory and love. The circle at the center of the crosspiece symbolizes eternity. IHS is the Holy Name of Jesus and is at the center of it all. Pretty cool, huh? We ended up walking 1.6 miles and while it helped work off lunch a bit, both of our legs were not happy since they were looking forward to a rest day. Double oops! We rented two movies that night, Cell and The Meddler. Hmm. Well, the Mr wanted to see Cell because he read the book and he liked it up to a certain point and the ending was pure poo in our humble opinions. (I'll warn you, if you don't like gore and barf, just skip it. I wish I had.) The Meddler was okay. It was a little draggy in places but it had a sweet story at its core.
Sunday we brunched hard because the Mr had a debilitating headache that left him fetal.
An omelet with spinach, green peppers and Orne Meadows cheese (I put some avocados on top of his for some extra healthy fats), the last of the organic kielbasa, banana sweet potato croquettes with a bit of chipotle honey and the last of the brioche bread for toast. It was quite delish and got him about 80% better.
The day sucked down the tubes pretty quick so we went down and did our separate strength workouts. I deemed lower body was a no go for me so I did an upper body burnout while the Mr did a plyo/lower body fest I picked out without previewing it. I do mine from the main tv in the basement and he sets up the tablet for his and mutes it so we can still workout together even if we're not doing to same ones. It's good for him it forces him to sharpen his attention skills. ;-)
Then we settled in for the night and I got all of my meals planned for the week and pre-made some stuff as well so we can make dinner that much easier. Workouts are going to be scaled back a bit this week since I've got the double strain on the hamstrings. I can feel it getting slightly better but all PT will have to be light meaning no weights and the beginning versions of all exercises given to me and taking out calf raises altogether. ("Taking out calf raises altogether."...points if you got the reference.) I will continue making water my priority this week as well.
What did you guys do this weekend? Any goals for the coming week?
