It was an unplanned day that turned out to have fun in it.

Exercise:

My run this morning was a struggle. I had decided to try walking over to Murray Street before starting to see if that helped my pace, but I don’t know if it helped, hurt or just messed with me mentally. I definitely didn’t like that I only clocked 4.2km, rather than the 5.1km I should have gotten! I think I’ll go back to just starting slow as I go across the street.

I also got a workout in this afternoon. It was a countdown workout.

50 jacks, 50 crunches

45 jacks, 45 squats

40 jacks, 40 lunges

35 jacks, 35 pushups

30 jacks, 30 high knees

25 jacks, 25 crunches

20 jacks, 20 squats

15 jacks, 15 lunges

10 jacks, 10 pushups

5 jacks, 5 burpees

I was definitely a hot, sweaty mess by the end. I’m really thinking I want to find a good weights workout though.

Shopping:

This past week when it was pouring, I found out that my Helly Hanson rain jacket had torn along the seam on the inside. I know I’m not tough on my clothing, so this morning I drove it back to the HH store where I bought it. They have sent it in to be repaired and it will be delivered to my home so I don’t have to make the 45 minute drive again. Yay!

Knitting:

I have gotten another three pattern repeats done on the blanket today. I really wish I hadn’t casted on so many stitches so it would go faster!!!

Family:

My nephew texted today to see if we could go for ice cream. I’m always happy to spend any time I can with that kid, so off I went. He actually bought me the ice cream this time. He’s growing up so much!! He also kept me company at Costco and helped me carry stuff. Of course it cost me a slice of Costco pizza, but it was a price I was happy to pay for spending time with him!

Reading:

I finished Intercepted by Alexa Martin today. It was so good! I was captured from the first page! The characters were interesting, the plot had a good pace, and the drama was appropriate for the professional sports world. I would recommend this as another good beach read! I also immediately started on the next book in the series, Fumbled.

Eating:

Rice cake with peanut butter and jam

Greek salad

Ice cream

salmon bowl over greens and some nachos (I’m way too full!)

Trivia:

Tonight trivia was a theme night about The Office. It was just my co-teacher Liane, her husband Eli and myself. I know absolutely nothing about this show, but managed to get two questions right.

In which state does The Office take place?

Pennsylvania

Who did they initially want to play the character that Rainn Wilson plays?

Seth Rogen

I have no idea how I knew those two things, but I did. Thankfully Liane had amazing knowledge and we sat at 4th for a while:)

I contributed my neat printing and Eli contributed knowledge of the show and the idea that I should go on a date between each Hallmark movie I watch🤣🤣🤣

Well, I’m back to reading.

Have fun!

  1. is he providing the guys for you to date between Hallmark movies? That would help! (but his comment made me laugh)

    glad you got to spend time with your nephew and the paying one slice of pizza for help lugging in costco items is so worth it!

  2. Thanks for mentioning the countdown workout, AJ! I tried a less intense version today, and it turned out to be a great change of pace to keep the workout motivation on. 🙂

    1. Yes I was happy that they were willing to have it fixed. I hope it solves the problem!
      I didn’t know anything about The Office either!

      1. We might be in the minority with The Office.
        I never watched The Big Bang Theory and it was on for years … nor did I watch Game of Thrones, but I don’t have TV, nor cable – I am really out of it!

      2. I want to get back to reading once I’m retired – I miss it very much. Growing up my parents were big readers – after dinner, they each read the newspaper from cover to cover and we had evenings when we weren’t watching TV, but reading, the whole family. I miss it, I really do – I can’t even get the AARP magazines read once a month … I have years of them piled up.
