Has a busy weekend.  Not quite as active as I had hoped, but I accomplished quite a bit in the house and did some bookkeeping (oh goodie, SO much fun ... insert bucketloads of sarcasm here). 

Saturday night we went to a friend's BBQ.  It was a quiet, but enjoyable evening.  Of course I started to turn into a pumpkin around 9:00, but managed to stay social a little longer.  We were still in bed before 10:30 - such party animals - hahaha!

On Sunday hubby & I were going to ride our bikes to a running trail, but the weather was good and he needed to work.  We still managed to get a 7 mile run in though.  Being a long weekend, the trail was MUCH quieter than it usually is on a Sunday morning.  Afterwards I did an Abs & Core workout.  My butt was still so sore from the Shred the day before.  I couldn't have managed a squat if you paid me.

Yesterday (long weekend - YAY!) we met up with some friends for a little run.  My legs were feeling it, but we didn't run too fast.  It was probably just what they needed.  It started off overcast with some mist in the air, but unfortunately turned to steady rain shortly after we left.  I was a drowned rat at the end.  Came home and was cold to the core.  The rest of the day was very scattered.  Some housekeeping, some bookkeeping, food prep for this week, a short nap. Our poor little puppy got a running injury (it's been a busy week for her).  One of her paws was raw after our last run.  I will make sure it's completely healed before she comes out again.  She's such a trooper - never stops, won't complain, always wants to go, HATES to be left behind - until after you see her holding her sore paw up.

This morning I was going to get up early and tackle that Shred workout again, but coupled with being up VERY late (11:00 - ahaha) doing food prep, and I accidentally lowered the volume on my alarm - I didn't get up on time.  I'll have to fit it in tonight.  This bugs me as I REALLY wanted it over and done with this morning!

Tomorrow my kidlets are back to school.  My daughter has asked me to curl her hair (it takes 40 minutes for the style she wants).  I only do this for her every few months, it's kind of a special thing.  I'm going to have to be super organized to get out the door on time.  FUN!

Hope everyone had a great (long) weekend!

Keep Active!

Not as active as she hoped, she says. Girl you've been very active!

Sounds like a perfect weeekend!

I can party till after midnight but you don't want to see me the next 2 days when I recover from that :lol:
And to be honest I don't like it anymore to go to bed that late.

Heehee! You are a party animal. Me, too. Not!

I love that you do her hair! My daugher fights me when I ask to do something special with her has-to-be-long hair. Why she wants it long when she rarely even likes to brush it, I will never understand!

Your weekend sounded great! And I definitely know about turning into a pumpkin - I swear once 9pm hits I am more than ready for nothing but watching a movie or bed. Keep up the good work on your shredding! :)
