I assume most of you will agree, this weekend could not come fast enough! It is a holiday weekend, here in the U.S., the Fourth of July.
Tonight will be low-key. I plan on convincing Carlos to catch up on watching some Hulu (Modern Family, anyone?) Tomorrow, we are going up to the lake. A couple years ago, my parents purchased some land about 50 minutes away, right on the border of Minnesota and Wisconsin. They were considering building and retiring there but never started building. They did however, clear the land and so every once in awhile, we all pack up and just get away. The good thing about it, is that it is close enough to make it a day trip.
Sunday and Monday will be relaxing days around here. Time to catch up, zone out and do whatever we fancy. As non-commital as that sounds, I’m pretty sure our days will get filled quickly–they always to! I’m a list gal-I like to check things off, cross them out and visually see I’ve accomplished something. But, here are my goals for this weekend:
- Workout Sunday & Monday.
- Watch at least one movie.
- Read at least one magazine.
- Clean upstairs & downstairs bathroom, vacuum.
- Meet at least one friend for breakfast, lunch or coffee.
- Send bracelets.
- Take Iggy to doggy park.
- Play a game with Carlos.
Okay, I’m already getting overwhelmed with that list, even though 75% of it is considered “rest & relaxation” activities.
Reflecting on the week
I am pretty happy with the way this week has played out. I got 4 workouts in so far and will hit the gym today at work, since it will be so utterly dead. Eating has also been very consciously done. I have stayed within a 1400-1800 calorie range and tracked it through today so far. Now comes the tricky part, to continue this through the weekend. I’m bringing my journal with me wherever I go (including up to the lake) and am making a public plea for my family to hold me accountable!
Short post, I know–but sometimes, it just is what it is. I’m ready to get this PARTY STARTED, get the work hours over with and move on with my weekend 🙂
