Well some might call it social distancing, but it really has been just a normal weekend for me.


I have to admit that I sat down to knit a row at 6:16am on Saturday morning and finally got into workout gear at 8pm, only to put my jammies back on 25 minutes later🤣

I spent the entire day knitting my striped sweater.

I baked banana bread, but don’t like how it turned out so I may just throw it away.

My workout was a Kayla Itsines workout I saw on Facebook. It was quick and simple and consisted of 3 sets of 12 reps of the following:

Bent over rows

Military press

Mountain climbers

Hand release pushups

Goblet squats

Squat to reverse lunge

Step up with knee up


I didn’t get very sweaty but it had a lot of good moves.


I started the day with my usual run meet up. Two walked and three of us ran. It was very sunny but very cold, actually colder than it was in January!

I enjoyed having company but found it a little tough. I usually run with Dennis who definitely challenges me as he runs faster than me, but today Sarah came out and I felt like I should stick with her, but we were running a full minute slower per kilometer. It shouldn’t bother me as plenty of people have slowed down for me and I have lots of other times to run fast, but this morning, it did kind of get to me:(

After coffee and a quick stop for groceries, I have spent the day knitting again.

I have one button band to do and I am done this sweater so there should be a finished object photo tomorrow:)

This evening I have gotten a workout done- day six from the Ten Pound Shred book. It consisted of 40 seconds of each exercise for three sets. I did:

High knees


Stability ball bent over rows

Plié squats

High knees

Up downs

An crunches with a dumbbell

Stability ball Superman

I was definitely sweating by the end of this workout!

I have been quite calm about everything that is happening, but this evening I had a friend text me and it kind of got to me. I think it’s because I don’t know how anything would work. Maybe I should go buy a bit more food. I don’t keep much in my house as it calls to me. I’m supposed to be visiting my parents next week or later this week, but now I wonder if I’ll be able to? Of course, I can’t tell if they actually want me to come for the whole time or to limit my time as they are busy with their renovating? I sometimes wish someone else, anyone else, would organize my life!

Ugh I think I’ll just go back to knitting!

Have fun!

  1. I made banana bread two days ago with a mixture of different flours because the shops are sold out and I didn’t enough enough of one flour to make it 🙂 I also chucked in 5 (!!) cashew nuts and a tube of Smarties. And sandwiched it together with icing and peanut butter. Very interesting… LOL

    1. Lol I had enough flour but the recipe is very dry and not sweet. I had to use honey instead of agave.
      Nice to hear it’s not just BC that’s panic shopping

  2. I jokingly told someone on Instagram that I’ve been preparing for social distancing my entire life since I’m an introvert. It’s definitely a scary time since there are so many unknowns and you’re valid to have those feelings! Personally I’d get a little extra food, nothing crazy just some staples. In my mind it never hurts to have some extra stuff, hence why I always have meat and veggies in the freezer. Part of that could be because I’m one of four kids so my parents loved Costco to feed us since they could buy in bulk and freeze.

    1. Lol my running group was discussing that very thing yesterday. I social distance every weekend🤣
      Ya I think I’ll wander over for a few items. I’m calmer this morning, thankfully!

      1. Interesting! I always run alone so I don’t know how people act in group runs haha. It’s been years since I did a group run during cross country or track practice.

      2. I ran alone this morning but even when I run with people, we have a few feet between us and really if you had a fever you wouldn’t be out running!

  3. sweet Aj. Your love for your family is constant. You always make a good choice with these things. You are amazing! we worked in the yarn so that was our workout today. My arse and back are really improved now. I just need to keep sharp objects far from me!

    1. I definitely love them so am so torn as to whether I should end up quarantined with my parents on the island or at home. Just waiting to hear what’s going to happen for teachers here as I’ve heard rumors that even if school is closed, teachers have to go in to be paid.
      I’m glad you’re feeling better and that you can still work in the barn with all this uncertainty. Must be good for your nerves:)

  4. Sounds like a nice relaxing weekend in many ways! It is tough figuring out what to do as far as travel goes right now. It is hard to tell what is going to come next as far as travel restrictions and quarantines.

  5. I would get some food in if you can. Here there is much woe that the hoarding masses have been buying gluten-free stuff because it’s available, then when the people who need it come along, there’s nothing. I need oats and oat milk to control my cholesterol and I’m buying both when I see them. Take care!

    1. I got a bit, but thankfully I can still get fresh veggies and fruit which is what I eat the most. I did have to go to a second store for my milk and cheese though. I hope all is going okay with you!

    1. Thanks Jess! My parents and one brother’s family are in quarantine just because someone they were in contact with came down with symptoms- it’s a waiting game to see if they got it

  6. We’ve stocked up on food and supplies. Maybe to last six weeks, but not sure. No one knows how long this could go on. Our son is here so we need plenty of food! Do what you feel is best. ❤️
