I have to admit I ducked out of my commitments today and did what I wanted:)

Exercise:

I had my usual Sunday morning run, complete with tech issues:(. We ran at Burnaby Lake today and it was nice because I only had to do 45 minutes and Dennis was back. He runs way faster than me but he does loop back to check on me regularly. Sarah was supposed to come, but didn’t, so it was nice to have a little bit of company on the run. Of course at 35 minutes it said I had run 3.5km and then at 45 minutes it said I had run 3.55km. I don’t think so:( Thankfully it was by time and not distance today. It seems as though I’m going to have to look into a watch because even I’ve had enough of my complaining about tech problems, so you all must be beyond bored with it!

I was super excited to hear that a girl from last night wanted to be included on the Sunday run email. I really hope this means that she will come out as I think we may be a good fit together and I hear she’s reliable so at least one day a week I’d have someone to run with:). Fingers crossed!!!!

I got out for another 5km run this evening since it had quit raining and it will allow me to sleep in an extra half hour tomorrow morning and still get the mission done. That’s the last run for the month! It showed again that I have better runs at night!

Food:

On my way home from my run this morning (after tea of course) I stopped and did my grocery shopping for the week. I have a plan in mind and intend to keep to it as I’m feeling a little pudgy right now. I did my meal prep for the week. I made a big fruit salad which is one of my favorite warm weather breakfasts. I hard boiled some eggs for recess snacks. I made bread thinking that I’d have soup and a slice of bread for lunch, but the bread didn’t turn out great so I did up a veggie pizza and will have a quarter for each lunch. I have veggies cut up for afternoon snacks and then broccoli, turkey burgers (homemade) and potatoes for dinner:) I love when I have everything ready as my day always goes smoother that way. I actually end up eating less because my food is ready so I don’t snack as I get food ready:)

Knitting:

I have spent the day working on a bag for my sister in law out of some of the ribbon yarn I bought yesterday. I had gotten three repeats done and decided the needle size was too small, so I frogged it and started over with 6.5mm needles. I’ve done three repeats and I’m happy enough with it. I was hoping to have it finished today, but I guess it will be tomorrow. Here’s where I’m at:

I also just found out this evening that I’m a Gryffindor on Harry Potter Knit and Crochet House Cup On Ravelry again this term. I was Gryffindor last term and we won:) I like being part of this because it helps me choose my projects:)

Reading:

Unfortunately I can’t listen to Age of Innocence and do this bag pattern so I am still at chapter ten of my book.

Well I’m off to knit some more!

Have fun!

    1. I love fruit salad. It’s even better with yogurt but the store stopped carrying the stuff I can eat 😣
      Librivox is great for classics. I have to admit I have to be doing something mindless in order to listen or else I lose track of the story too easily:(

  1. Kudos to you for getting your meal prep done! It does make the week go so much easier, doesn’t it? You have a good week!

    1. I will for sure write a review of it. My mom actually picked it.
      Thank you- it’s a favorite of mine because it’s always different

  2. Definitely look into getting a GPS watch! I absolutely adore mine and it was worth the money for sure.

    Did you put frozen fruit in the fruit salad? If so I’ve never seen that before.

    1. What watch do you have?
      Yes I froze blueberries, strawberries and raspberries last summer so those were three of the things I put in

      1. I have the Garmin Forerunner 15. It’s pretty basic which was what I wanted since I wasn’t sure how I would like a watch like that. It tracks my distance, pace, autolaps for every mile and I can manually lap it before the mile if I’m doing intervals of some kind. You can change it to kilometers when you set it up I think!
        I’ll have to try that with frozen berries I have.

      2. Ok thanks for the info – that sounds like what I want as I don’t really want a watch so smart I can’t work it:)
        The berries thaw so it tastes the same when you eat, just a cheaper option

      3. It’s definitely a great option for a simple watch that does what you want without being impossible to work with!
        It makes total sense to use frozen berries. I just had never thought of it for some reason lol

  3. that bag looks really cool, I am sure your SIL will appreciate that gift. listening to the classics read out loud makes sense. I am not sure I could sit and read the classics in a book, I think I’d give up too quickly.

    when I was growing up we always had a big bowl of fruit salad in the fridge, hmmm I should make some for myself that would be a great snack

    1. I hope she likes it and that I get it done on time!!
      Yup listening is much easier than reading them!
      You should make some- so yummy!

  4. The bag looks like it will be a great size, and I love the texture you are getting with the pattern and yarn combo. The fruit salad looks amazing, it is that time of year! This winter has made it easy to get that pudgy feeling…I’m on my own mission to deal with that in the next few weeks. It certainly helps when the weather encourages you to be outside!

    1. I changed the stitch count and needle size a bit, but I think I’ll be happy with it. Now just have to try and get it done!
      Yup I think I just need a few days of clean eating and I’ll feel better:)

  5. Mmmm… Your food choices sounds delicious. I really need to go back to pre-planning and eating healthier. I got into some bad habits over the last couple of months blaming it on work and blogging.. I may have to take a little more “me time” and get some stuff sorted out!

    1. It’s tough to find the time, but definitely makes my week smoother and helps me to not eat really horribly, though I did sneak home for some ice cream at lunch today😛

      1. Exactly!! I just eat the ice cream. Period. …. Ok. I’m lactose in tolerant. So, really it’s more like I eat the chips or something. But, the statement stand. No run to make ME feel better! Lol! So, you’re doing better than me! 😂💖
