A Great Weekend and Morning Exercise
The weekend just blew past, didn’t it? It did for me!
On Friday I finished up the 35 fabric pumpkins that had been ordered as favors for an Autumn-themed baby shower. And it was a good thing I did because my customer was coming to pick them up that evening!
The pumpkins turned out so cute! My customer was very happy. 🙂 Got to love when that happens! No rest for the wicked though! I have a line up of commissions, including a top with matching necklace, a mobius scarf, matching aprons for mommy and daughter, baby hats and a couple of scarves in team colors. Whew!
On Saturday I attended a bridal shower for my friend Allie. Remember when I posted about purchasing this bridesmaids dress? Well, dress is for Allie’s wedding, which is now 3 weeks away! Her shower was a lovely little affair with lots of delicious dips, fresh fruit and excellent cupcakes.
And on Sunday, the husband and I went to the York Fair.
We had fun just walking around, people watching and eating fair food.
Lately I have felt so tired and sluggish. It stems from being sick recently. There was being sick, which is enough in and of itself, but then there was the effect being sick had on my workout plan. Which is to say that it totally destroyed it.
Well, that ended today. I am determined to get back into the habit of exercising before work during the work week, so I got out of bed at 5:40 a.m. and was on the treadmill by 6. I have loved getting outside and running in the morning for the last couple of months but sunrise is getting later and later as we approach Autumn and it’s just not getting light early enough for me to feel comfortable running outside in the morning anymore. Sad face. 😦 So I am back to the trusty treadmill at least 2 days a week. (I’ll still be running outside on Wednesday evenings for running group and hopefully I can get out during daylight hours on the weekends.)
I think I might be in the minority but I find running on the treadmill to be harder than running outside. I can’t maintain the same speed on the treadmill as I can when I run outside. I eeked out 3.25 miles, including warm up and cool down, and I really had to push myself. My goal was 3.5 miles but I was running out of time. I ended up burning 445 calories! I am happy with the distance I got in. Looking forward to tomorrow morning’s workout!
