I have purposely had a quiet day after spending the whole week being tired. I’m hoping it helps!
I slept in this morning and then met Sarah and Kula for a run around the river this morning. At one point I remarked on the fact that it seemed extremely busy today, but Sarah reminded me we were an hour later than usual. It was a slow run for me, but still felt good to get out with company. I always seem to run the same pace so it was probably good for me to slow down and maybe it will make me faster tomorrow.
I have been neglecting my weights while L is out of town, so last night and tonight I did 3 sets of 12 of: squats, deadlifts, reverse crunches, crunches, bicycles, side steps with the band, hip bridges and chest presses.
After a quick stop to get the veggies I need for tomorrow’s dishes, I have spent a lot of the day knitting.
It has taken me three tries, but I have finally been successful at the daddy-son hat that I am testing for Zanete Knits. I am doing this out of the same blue Ancient Arts yarn I made the Not a Boring Sweater from and it will be for me, if it fits. My gauge swatch stretched a lot, but it still looks small to me.
I am reading two books right now. I have been listening to a podcast called Not Your Mom’s Romance Bookclub and they were talking about a Penny Reid series featuring knitting. I’ve never been a huge Penny Reid fan, but I’m giving her Knitting in the City series a try.
I’m alternating that book with my latest NetGalley read, Seduction on a Snowy Night. This is composed of three short stories and I am just finishing the first one. I have to admit I didn’t love the first story at the start, but it has gotten better.
After two bad days, I have had a good day today. This makes four days and I’d really like to be able to get myself a treat so I’m hoping for another good day tomorrow, regardless of eating a meal out!
Today I’ve had:
Oatmeal, cheese and tuna on cucumber slices, banana, hamburger patty with a slice of vegan cheese.
Well, I’m going back to my knitting and reading, though maybe while curled up in my bed🤣
I really need to go do something exciting for you guys- you must all be falling asleep reading this lately!
