Yesterday’s Sensational Sunday

3 Comments 1187 views

Yet again I had the best intentions to post last night but I ended up sputtering out around 8 p.m.  even though I ended up staying up too late anyway. Sometimes I just get into this mindless mode where I’m not doing much of anything even though I want to be.

I did finally pick up the guitar after a short hiatus. It’s funny how a vacation can throw your routine out the window. I swear it’s taken me over a week to find my groove again (and if I’m being honest, to put the suitcases away).

Anyway, yesterday started bright and early even though I didn’t want it to. I was up before everyone at 6 a.m. and I tried to fall back asleep but I just couldn’t. It took a bit to get my butt in gear but I finally got up, shut off the TV, turned on the music and started cleaning. I told the kids they needed to help. After a little while I realized I was all alone. I walked up the stars slightly annoyed that I was going to have to tell them AGAIN to clean up. That’s when I saw this …

Sometimes they just melt me! Other times…. grrrrrr.

When they were done they joined me downstairs and I let them make forts out of the moved couch since I was cleaning the floors.

This is another way I #wycwyc. The way I see it, the kids learn to have fun while cleaning and they are entertained while I do the big stuff.

While I focused on the inside of the house The Husband did his first big yard day of the season cutting the grass, edging and fertilizing.

It was gorgeous but chilly.

Once I got the house to a presentable stage, I fed the kids lunch and then hit the trails for a run.

I loved all 8 miles of it!

Honestly, I’ve been completely uninspired to train for the half I have coming up on May 1. I’ve been so short on time recently and I know I can cover the distance, so training runs are the lowest thing on my priority list. And if I had to choose between going to the gym and going for a run, the gym wins every time. I just have more fun with the variety of what we do there and the social aspect.

That said, running the trails was really fun! I may just have to shift my running routes to the woods, but that requires a little more effort and planning than just stepping out my front door.

I’m excited for the half as it’s in Vermont and I’ll be traveling specifically for it. I love running in new places! I just don’t plan on hitting a new personal best or anything. It’s going to be 13 miles at my pace, which right now is slow.

After the run I stopped at the grocery store before heading home. We needed just a few things to get us through the week.

Then it was dinner and CRASH … I was done.

I took a shower, practiced guitar, and mustered just enough energy to fold my laundry while watching Fear the Walking Dead.

Yesterday was a great day and I’m ready to tackle this week. Not as ready as I was last week. I didn’t prep as much but I think I’ll be OK. Food journal is still going strong!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I do the same exact thing. Calling it for the night and then just zoning out mindlessly and not even enjoying the time. But it looks like Sunday was a great day!
