Another Monday...

The weekend flew by, as usual.

Saturday I finally got out and exchanged my sneakers at The Running Room; they had some new stock so there were a couple more pairs in my size to try. I did a couple of other errands, picked up groceries and headed home.

In the afternoon I did my first Couch-to-5K Week 4 session...I have to say I didn't enjoy it much, but I got through it. Then I did a 20 minute yoga DVD.

Yesterday I was extremely lazy. Crawled out of bed around 9 am, made myself breakfast and a pot of coffee, sat myself down on the couch with Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Piccoult. I stayed there for most of the day. I did get up and do my Crunch Cardio Sculpt DVD and a short walk on the treadmill. I also got a few things ready for the work week. But mostly I sat on the couch and read. That makes two weekends in a row. Enjoyable, but I end up not getting much of anything done around the house.

Just as dusk started to fall yesterday, I saw our herd of deer up on the hill. I watched them for quite a while (instead of washing dishes, which is what I should have been doing). The started to move around behind the house, so I went out on our deck, as quietly as I could, and ended up having a really good view of them for quite a while. Eventually I went back in because I was getting cold, but they were still there on the hill, watching me watching them. A few times now I've seen them go running up or down the hill - it's quite something to see those white tails flashing.

Going to try to get back to tracking my points this week, even though I didn't over the weekend. Really hoping to have another good week.

I am soooooo jealous of where you live being able to watch the wildlife like that! I HATE living in the city sometimes...

I am having quite the rough time on core... I am not quite sure if I am going to even make it a week now! lol But I'll keep ya posted.

Now get back tracking those pts! lol
