This weekend was super mega nice. The weather was beautiful which meant soccer and walks and naps in the sunshine. I’m a little sad it’s over just because I want to spend some time outside again this week. Oh, well. At least my office has a window.
Saturday started off with a lazy morning and then two awesomesauce soccer games. I scored 3 goals and had a few assists (ok, I didn’t really keep count–maybe 2 or 3). We won both games (two different teams). The weather was perfect, but I know I sweated off my sunscreen about halfway through the first game because my face looks a little lobstery today. Sean and I had another soccer game Sunday–scored two more goals–but we tied the other team.
Man, soccer makes me happy. I got picked up in another league on Thursdays. Super excited to add more soccer to my life. Addicted?
I also spent a lot of time on Pinterest this weekend looking up vegetarian recipes and home decorating ideas. I’m still not allowed to paint anything or hang anything on the walls, but I can dream for my “one-day home.” Trends I’m liking–grey bedrooms, chevron rugs, LOTSA windows! And cats. Tonza cats.
Today I’m trying to focus on being healthy through and through. I want to be healthy in the way I treat other people and the way I treat myself. Today I’ll give love freely, work on being patient, smile, express gratitude, recognize someone’s hard work, and kiss the people (and pets) I love one extra time. I’ll eat healthily, exercise my body and my brain, focus on the positive, and tell myself I’m awesome at least once!
Why do weekends only last two days? They’re the best two days of the week. This weekend was jam-packed. My soccer game wasn’t until 12:30, so I had all morning to go see some of my friends at the YMCA. I did an interval class with my fave instructor and then she stayed to teach Turbo! It’s been forever since I’ve done a Turbo Kick class. It felt so good to get back in the groove. It came back like nothing, and I was still my good, old self again. I really want to get back into teaching, but my work schedule doesn’t allow for much of anything but work. But that’s another post.
Prepare for soreness!
After that, we headed to the soccer game, which was H. O. T. I mean, I was sweating just thinking about playing. Miserable. I even took a sub for 2 minutes, and I never take a sub. It was serious business.
Afterwards, we came home and took showers, made dinner and relaxed the rest of the night. Nothing like an active morning to wear you clean out!
Sunday, we took a break (even though my marathon training plan said to run 8 miles). Sean headed in to do some work, and I ran errands, cleaned the bathrooms, did laundry, and even tried to go for an afternoon run.
It was one of the most miserable runs of my life. I was still full from lunch. It was probably over 100 degrees. And all my running crops were dirty, so I had to wear the longer ones that almost reach my ankles. People looked at me like I was crazy. I only got about 4 miles in because it was so humid and hot. Whew. Lesson learned.
We made it to Tennessee for Thanksgiving 1 of 2 and TN trip1 of 3. Yes. The next two months will consist of Sean and I going to Tennessee almost every weekend.
Not. I am starting to hate that drive. Though, when you make it first thing in the morning, it feels like the hour or so when you’re driving in the dark doesn’t exist and that you’re drive time decreases by a lot.
In other news, we got some Christmas shopping done this weekend! It’s that time of year again! Hooray! Hopefully we’ll put up our lights soon!
I’m too exhausted to give you more of a rundown… Whew. So here’s some Monday Motivation for you. I have a real blog planned for tomorrow. I just have to get the umph to write it. Sorry, folks, early bedtime!
