If you’ve been reading for some time, you know my Sensational Sundays are all about forgetting (forgiving) myself for any and all indiscretions over the weekend, moving forward and setting the tone for the week.Side note: I posted the first one in 2007… TWO THOUSAND AND SEVEN!
Anyway, I really have been feeling out of sorts lately. My schedule has been crazy, I’ve eaten out more in April than I’ve eaten in and my running has really suffered with this stupid hamstring injury.
I can’t lie… my jeans are getting quite snug.
I actually contemplated hopping on the scale for a second but decided against it. It’s only going to tell me what I already know, and who needs some arbitrary number to bring them down even further? Another side note: After a long and drawn out discussion with myself I gave up my scale last year.
Instead of looking down, I move forward.
Today started with a run before the boys woke up.
It’s been awhile since I’ve started my day at home with a run. It was slow and ugly but I was out there and that’s all that matters.
I’m estimated it about 2.5 miles. For some reason my phone’s GPS is not working with any running programs so I can’t track. :(
Anyway, when I got back, the 8-Year-Old had just woken up and plopped himself in front of the TV. This was his reaction when I told him no TV until we did our chores.
He got over it then really got into tending our new container garden.
We planted the tomato, pepper, yellow squash, broccoli, cilantro, basil and mint plants we bought yesterday.
Breakfast was “Openmeal” (what we call this oatmeal dish) for the boys and an egg sandwich for me.
I used an egg, egg white, spinach, ham and put it on a sandwich thin with a squirt of ketchup.
After breakfast the 3-Year-Old and I hit a local trail.
We also found a new friend!
It was so fun!
When I got back I practiced my belay knots while the 8-Year-Old finished his chores.
We had a date at the rock-wall climbing place!
Before we left… lunch!
I had leftovers from yesterday’s BBQ, part of which is that Napa Cabbage Salad. I can’t wait to share it on GreenLiteBites!
Off to Earth Treks we went. I volunteered to belay for a small group of boys.
We had a blast!
Now if I could only find a climbing partner and an extra few hours so I could climb as well!
When we got home we found the husband slaving away on the landscaping.
We joined in and got lots of the mulching done. Then it was Lego time.
Someone wanted to build a house but was soon distracted by creating a “Flower Tower.”
So I finished it. :)
For dinner I grilled again. This time a bison burger on a sandwich thin with a side of grilled cauliflower, more of my cabbage salad and a small green salad.
It was a feast!
Afterwards I made lunch for the 3-Year-Old…
… and cleaned up. The boys were helping until they got distracted with a balloon fight.
Now I’m watching Game of Thrones and snacking on some fresh fruit. I couldn’t have asked for a better start to what I’m planning to be a kick-ass week! Stay tuned for a new challenge tomorrow. I’ve got a doozy for you!
Hope you had a great weekend.
