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?
