weekend recovery

oh boy, monday again. i always stay up way too late on sunday which makes monday morning a really rude awakening. last night i was so caught up in reading "valley of the dolls" that i stayed up until 2 am. obviously i didn't work out this morning. BUT i did bring my running stuff to work with me and am seriously considering going for a lunch time run. there are pros and cons to the lunchtime run.

get it out of the way
not doing anything during that time anyway
it's a nice day
frees up the evening
will probably feel more tired tonight

sweating profusely
not being able to read my awesome book at lunch
possibly stinking (although i doubt it... i don't really smell)

more pros than cons. i don't really like going for outdoor runs after work. i like running to be something i take care of before the rest of the day begins.

my cottage weekend was fun, although i have ZERO bikini pictures. friday we didn't get there until night. saturday was cloudy and then a bit rainy. yesterday (sunday) it was beautiful and we did hang out on the beach but my camera was inside the house and i wasn't fussed about getting it. there will be lots of time this summer to get bikini pictures (especially since i am going to california in TWO WEEKS).

obviously my eating at the cottage wasn't great. hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, etc. but i don't think it was too bad. i just ate when i was hungry and when someone else was willing to cook me something on the grill. also, on saturday i went for a run along the beach. i took the road for a couple of kilometres and then ran on the beach on the way back. it was breezy and beautiful. i was running in my bikini top which was a little bouncy at first but i got used to it.

this week is really busy for me.

monday: weekend recovery and cleaning (this isn't really being busy... but i also have to finish my book and it's loooooong)
tuesday: book club
wednesday: date night
thursday: george michael concert (yes i love george!)
friday: weekend!

i was thinking about counting points this week. i haven't done it in so long and it sounds fun to me for some reason. here is today's menu:

coffee (0)
blueberries (1)
oatmeal (2)
2 source yogurts (1)

whole wheat bun (2)
lentil soup (3)
carrots (1)

apple (1)
2 source yogurts (1)

i haven't thought of this yet. maybe... chicken.

Sounds like a fun weekend. I didn't get any bikini shots either, but I'm not too sad about you all not seeing my pale ass. :)

Carrots don't count a point unless they are cooked!

Happy Monday.

Who knew that counting points can be fun? LOL! Thanks for a different perspective. Good for you for running along the beach. I hear it's hard.

Sounds like you had fun and were able to keep on track with the food and exercise.

I've been counting points for the past few days as well - I need it to keep me on track lately. So far so good. As if you went for a run on Saturday, you are a superstar! I suck at working out and eating whenever we go anywhere.

Anne said...

Sounds like you had a great weekend! Yeah for getting your runs in :)
I hear ya, eating at cottages, camping ect is not easy.

Crystal said...

Glad to hear you had a fun weekend. Sounds like a busy week ahead of you but you got some fun stuff planned in there. I love concerts!

Sounds like a good time, I totally would have gone for the lunchtime run, to get out of the way. Hope you made it out! Sounds like a good read that is keeping you up! Weight watchers does not sound bad, I wonder how many calories it ends up being.
