The long and winding road to fitness, day 69

Waiting for the harvest. Stacks of boxes near ...

Oh my, am I ever tired tonight!!  We had a huge truck come in today and that’s what I spent my entire workday doing…well, okay, I did set up some interviews with some job applicants for tomorrow and we did sing happy birthday to Allen in front of all the customers…do you think he enjoyed that? Does anyone ever really enjoy that?  So why do we continue to do it to people?  I guess our thought is that we had to endure it so they should too.

I walked for over an hour today, did upper body strength training and then there was all that walking and lifting I did at work…good day with the exercise, for sure.

Believe it or not, my eating wasn’t too bad even with all that food everyone brought in to work today.  I still finished the day at just under 1900 calories so managed to achieve my goal of consuming less than 2000 calories for the day.  Now to just get right back with my healthy eating tomorrow.  At least everyone took their leftovers home, so all of that good home cooking won’t be staring me in the face tomorrow.

It was really a nice day to be outside today.  I almost didn’t mind working outside for close to five hours…”almost” being the operative word.  But at least we had cooler temps and lower humidity.

I have one more day to work and then it’s that wonderful, glorious thing that only comes around every once in a while…a weekend off.  I have no real plans for my weekend.  I’m thinking farmers market Saturday morning, then who knows?

What have you got planned for the weekend?

  1. Sounds like an overall swell day. I had work outside in the rain partly, so that was fun. Went home, checked hrs at my other job for tomorrow, did some works outs, fixed Internet wireless garbage, and now am bored haha.

    My weekend looks like thus: breakfast with friends tomorrow, work, maybe lunch with a friend, chillin with one of the friends from the breakfast, party with same friend but also other friends (this is just Fri btw), Sat. helping my sister move, getting a better phone, Sun no clue yet. Enough for ya haha?

  2. Great day for you! No exercise to amount to much here, but kept the calories under control. Friday will be spent bringing in anything that can become a projectile in high winds. Then we’ll close the door and wait for it to end and see where we go from there. I have a chrysalis in the kitchen, due to emerge any time. Hope it waits until after the storm passes.

  3. Hey, Patti, I’m coming down tomorrow for Rich to put freon in my ac. Maybe we can get together. I’ll talk to you later. Have a great day.

    • Definitely, Margaret…I’m sure I’ll be back home by noon, but if you want to get together before that, just let me know. It’s been a while since we’ve done anything.
