The long and winding road to fitness, day 35

This was an unusual day for me.  I have to work every other weekend, but I don’t usually have to close.  However, the department manager who closes on my weekend is on vacation, so that puts me closing.  No big deal.  I used to do it all the time back when I was a department manager.  It certainly makes the work day go by quickly.  And it was nice to have a morning to leisurely do a few things around the house before work.  And sleeping in was another plus for the day.

I had another good day of eating and exercising.  I ate a little over 1500 calories for the day, eating only what I planned and brought to work with me.  I got a decent walk in before work, did some strength training for upper body and rode the bike for a bit.  Of course, lots of walking around at work, as usual. 

I took a bowl of plain yogurt with me.  Then I mixed it with some fresh blackberries and just a little granola…I’m really getting into this fresh fruit and yogurt thing…and the small amount of granola adds just a little crunch…yum!  For my dinner at work, I ate a veggie burger on rye bread and cantaloupe…I do love cantaloupe at this time of the year.

I did a little work outside before I went in to work today.  As early as it was, I was still drenched with sweat by the time I finished…and I was only out there for about an hour.  I did finally pull up my poor, bedraggled pansies…once the heat sets in, they’re finished.   I put out this hot pink geranium  on my front patio.  Also changed the wreath on my front door.  I had kind of a light pink hydrangea wreath out there…and that was perfect for spring…but spring has fled and I wanted something with a little more color.  So out came the fuschia spider daisy wreath…it looks brighter out there already.  It makes coming home a delight..well, it’s always a delight to come home, but you know what I mean.

So, how was your Saturday?  Anything fun and exciting happen?

  1. We attended Fantasci 9 at a local library to visit with some friends who were in town, and had an exhibit. The Klingons threw her in the stockade shortly after our arrival! It was too hot to do much else. Today we have an employee appreciation dinner…the calories are hopeless. The heat has been hard on our garden, but I found some fat caterpillars on the host plants! Congrats on having another great day! The entrance to your home sounds so welcoming.
