Last night the husband decided he didn’t want to sit home. So, we went out and ran a few errands. I’m really looking forward to the whole having a house thing and doing things like gardening and stuff when we move. Of course, having a house means we won’t be able to just run off to Target and spend $150 on nothing, but I can handle that.
Not that we spent a $150 at Target, but you understand what I mean. Last weekend I decided I want to paint the kitchen yellow. I have always thought that would make a really good color for a kitchen. I just have to find the perfect color. And we ended up at Lowe’s looking at paint. Really. It’s kind of surreal. I don’t think it will seem real until I’m sleeping in the house. Or painting the kitchen? Or probably both.
I hit the gym this morning for my run. I wasn’t feeling too hot last night and thought it was a good idea to run inside instead of outside in the cold garage. Another thing I won’t have to do when we move. I’ll have my treadmill inside and no more cold, morning runs for me. Even though I’ve gained weight and I’m not at my goal of 150-160 (I haven’t really decided yet) pounds, I can still run 3 miles and feel really good. I’m working my way back to 4 miles. Slowly. Today it was 3.10 miles. And I walked a mile after. I’ll get back to the weight lifting once we move. I’m simply not in the right frame of mind right now to do that.
I also started doing a plank a day yesterday. Was only able to hold 30 seconds yesterday, but got to 45 today. Slow, but getting there.
I’m enjoying a little me time today and watching the NASCAR race while the husband is out. Looking forward to making dinner and spending time with him when he gets home later.
The highlight of the weekend so far has to be watching the cats play with the toys we bought them at Target. Just those little stuffed mice, but they love them. Already 2 are missing, leaving only 1, but they love them. Even the oldest cat, Cynnamon, who is almost 17, was going crazy with the thing last night. It made me laugh so hard. They are my babies. And I love them so.
I was going to make corned beef and cabbage today, but never got around to buying any. The husband doesn’t like cabbage anyway, so it’s always a waste. I can really make it any time I want, but being Irish, I just feel like I should make it today.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
