So, Seattle when the sun comes out is the best place on earth. Er, I mean, it rains all the time...don't move here. I finally got a healthy 2 day dose of vitamin D, and plenty of exercise to make me feel back on track.
Saturday, I started my day off with a walk around the neighborhood. I was meeting some friends at the big lake park (Greenlake) that attracts every person in Seattle when it is sunny out, for some frisbee at 3pm. I had my boyfriend Dave drop me off early so I could run the perimeter of the lake before our intense Ulitmate Frisbee game. The route I usually take is 3.1 miles. I was feeling good, so I added an extra chunk of the lake, and probably ran about 3.5. I could have kept going, but knew I had to save some energy for the big game. I met my friends and we played for about 45 minutes. My team won!
On Sunday, I was a little stiff, but it was so GORGEOUS out, I decided to tackle some yard work. I asked my boyfriend what needed to be done. He mentioned two large stumps that needed to be dug up. How hard could that be? Heh. Well, there is something crazy about yardwork. I never feel like I'm working when I'm doing it, maybe because the progress and results are so evident immediately? Or maybe I love hacking away at dirt and roots? Today I feel like I ran a marathon yesterday. I'm sore all over, and really, the only explanation is the yard work.
I had a slight gain on the scale today, but I know that is directly related to last week where I ate at a restaurant at least once for five days in a row (AT LEAST once) and only exercised one day during the work week. No matter how good my weekend was (and it was) I could not erase all that damage. Here's to a new week!
