So, I have taken a break from blogging the last couple of days....... kinda a forced break because it took all I had to simply keep up with everyday life stuff! I just finished working 12 days straight due to the fact that I had to work a weekend which happens every 5th weekend or 10 times a year. It can be draining, but it is doable. This time was a bit different since I had the added stress of my dog passing on the Monday of the start of my 12 day stretch! That kinda put a damper and added a bit of stress right from the start. Overall, not a bad 12 days, but definitely tasking keeping up with "life." But, Bottom line, I made it! All that matters! :)
OK, I have gotten in short runs and keeping up with strength training. Today, I was back at spinning! I showed up bright and early at 9am to the local YMCA! I was ready!!! Or, so I thought! I just love the instructor that teaches the 9am class! She is mid 40s and feisty! She usually runs late, but right on time today! She was FIRED up too! Man, what a work out!!!!!!!
This is me leaving the YMCA! LOL!
HA! HAHAHAHAHA! HA! I look like I was wiped out or about to cry! LOL! Let's just say I have a love/hate relationship with spinning and the instructor!
NO, I am not one to have new dogs just show up, but this made me laugh out loud because I think this is what my face looks like when new running gear or running shoes show up at my house! I swear, I keep trying to tell my husband that I have NO IDEA how things just show up! Seriously, I am convinced there is a "running fairy." But, my husband says that the credit card bill says differently.... details! details! details!
OK! Garden watch! The corn has taken off!!! There are developing "tusks" or at least that is what I think they are called........ so exciting
The corn is WAY talking them me!!!!
Watermelon looking great too!!! So exciting! This picture makes the watermelon appear ready to pick, but it is actually still quite small! I think how I zoomed up in the picture makes it look bigger. Won't be long though!!!!!
Caught these two critters by the pond! Too cute....
Well, going to sign off! Hope everyone had a GREAT Saturday!
How was your Saturday? Run? Cross train?
Any new fabulous running gear arrive at your door from the running fairy?
