Weekends full of errands, hockey, date nights, and homework are so much fun. But what’s more fun? Slow relaxing weekends full of nothing. They are like gold these days. I was sick all last week. Thought I was coming out of it on Wednesday only to find myself worse on Thursday. Decided not to work out on Thursday and instead spent the extra time finishing my homework for the week. For Friday’s exercise I just did weight lifting without pushing too hard. Focused on a balanced full body work out since I didn’t do much the rest of the week.
Saturday was Valentine’s day. It was also 0 degrees out with a wind chill of -25ish so all of the kids’ outdoor hockey practices and games for Saturday were cancelled. I didn’t clean or catch up on projects around the house, I didn’t have to work on homework, I didn’t work out (nope, not at all). I just enjoyed not being sick and not having an agenda. I usually love being busy and having a list of things to accomplish but yesterday we all literally just did nothing. We went to IHOP in the morning, we played video games (Sims
4 for me!), we had Jimmy John’s for dinner, we napped. It was amazing. Today I got in a short run (first one in about a week), did some laundry, turned in my homework, focused on drinking extra water. We went out for lunch, had some fun at the arcade, picked up some cupcakes. Later in the evening we all went to our 8 year old’s hockey game followed by dinner at Pizza Ranch.
So happy for the time at home with family. Sometimes it’s just nice to do nothing at all. I’m now feeling fully refreshed and ready to kick butt in the gym this week! 🙂
