I don't get why that would come back in style. I mean...we do look back at our yearbooks and think WTF?! Not that I'm one bit of a fashionista, but I think I've got to sit this one out. Now, if I could fit into my old clothes from the late 80's, I'd probably rethink that. How great would it to be, yeah, these are my stirrups from h.s.?
Yesterday ended up being a super lazy day. It really was nice. Brian and I even took a nap together. Really, a real nap, with nothing else. Later that night, I
was lounging around in the room, and Cal came in with one excuse or another to lay down with me and Ryne soon followed suit. Ryne never hangs out with us like that. We all laid down on the bed and watched Blades of Glory. Thank God for stupid humor! Love that kinda stuff. It was a really nice night. Brian let Cal sleep in here with me, and we both slept really well. Cal's not a great sleeper, either, and I desperately needed a good sleep.
Sunday's here, and I hate that I keep thinking that we have to go to work tomorrow. Ugh. I need to put it out of mind and just enjoy the best of our day off. Brian made french toast for the boys this morning (he does every Sunday). It's their thing. God forbid Brian ever try to get out of it, the boys don't let him off the hook. I made myself a smoothie instead of having the french toast. I also did 8 miles on the recumbent bike this morning. Man, that felt good. I
pushed myself harder on the resistance and went longer than the time it set. It appears that the bike will only set itself for a 30 min. workout. I tried to monkey around with it, but to no avail. So, after my 30 mins was up I did my own type of workout. I feel good. For many, that would just be a warm-up, but to me it's a huge step in the right direction. My knee has been really feeling the
aftermath, though. I feel it for quite a while after I get done with the bike. That's not a good sign... The bike is supposed to be easy on my knee. I just pray that once I get some weight off my knee will start to feel better, but deep down I know I'm fucked. I'm going to be cautious about my approach to working out, but I'm also not going to use this knee as an excuse not to do anything. I'll push 'til I figure out my knee won't work.
I have the t.v. in the background with sound down, while I'm listening to iTunes. I looked up a few minutes and there was something scrolling along the bottom of the screen about some music festival that was about an hour and a half from here. I haven't been to a concert since I've been out here. Going to concerts is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I've got to start looking into that stuff. Now that I have a few friends out here, I've got no excuse to get out and start doing some of the things that I love.
Well, I guess I should get to juicing and making some soups. That's the only
bummer about having a totally lazy Saturday: it makes for a busy Sunday. A good busy, though. There's no place I'd rather be today, than here w/ my boys.
Wishing you all an "easy like Sunday Morning." -what I'm listening to now.
