I had a whole list of things I wanted to get done today, but unfortunately the energy level just wasn’t there for all of it.

Exercise:

Of course I couldn’t sleep in this morning, but after lazing in bed and having a lovely 1/2 of a fried egg sandwich, I got out for a run. Later in the day, I wished I had waited as it was pretty grey when I was out there. I ran slowly as I needed to get 45 minutes in for the Squad Runner mission. I didn’t run that long (used some walking to make up the time), but got a nice 5.24km though it went downhill quickly at the end when my stomach started talking.

After recovering for the rest of the day I got a short hallmark movie workout done this evening. I did a minute of jogging between each of these: crunches, reverse lunges, squats, reverse crunches, burpees, plié squats, dips, froggers, mountain climbers, and high knees. Not many of each, but something.

I’ve been keeping track of my workouts this year and am thinking my goal might be to keep my number of runs and number of workouts equal.

Stitching:

I will have an update at the end of the month, but I actually did some stitching today. It was so nice and bright and sunny that it seemed like the perfect time and I did a lovely calm hour of stitching.

Knitting:

I went to the knitting store today and got a Pom Pom for my friend’s toque that she wants me to make her. I got that and the Gramps pattern from Tin Can Knits with the gift card I got from a student this Christmas.

I also got busy and got my baby blanket done. I used all five balls of yarn I had, but it still didn’t turn out to be as big as I wanted. I still really like the pattern, but also would have liked it if I had done the full 18 rows of border on both ends instead of shortening it to 9.

I tried to have ice cream after the yarn store, but Vashti Rose wasn’t open yet. I guess I was saved.

Movie:

Tonight I watched Homecoming For Christmas which was very cute.

Well that was it for my quiet day!

  1. the baby blanket is very pretty. when my kids were little I had a few blankets that were different sizes depending on my needs. the smaller ones are good in the car or the stroller, so I wouldn’t worry if you feel it is too small.

    hope you get to have another restful yet productive day

    1. I like to think of it as being like a deck of cards workout. I try to hit all the basic moves and once I’m better hopefully I can get back to real workouts
