Friday was my first day back to the gym, after I don't know how many months. I met a friend in the morning and we planned to attend a class, but after arriving, we found that the class had been canceled for that day. So off to the treadmills we went. After working out I headed back home and didn't really move from the couch for the rest of the day. I can't stand being this out of shape. Thursday night Jon and I lifted weights at home and my arms are still sore from that (and it's now Sunday).
COME ON! Seriously. I can't wait to get back into the swing of things.
Friday night my amazing husband surprised me with girl scout cookies!
First day back to the gym and I get girl scouts cookies brought home to me......... It wasn't his fault, he's so awesome and thoughtful for bringing me home something sweet.. but I can't help myself when it comes to those darn cookies!!!
Saturday we woke up super early and loaded our bikes into the SUV. We drove to the nearby park and did a little biking. The park leads to a wonderful trail through a wooded area, and there is a stream running along the trail. Here are some pictures of our biking adventure
You might be a redneck if you put a plastic bag over your bike seat so as not to get your booty wet.
The lovely duck pond
And a rhino????
After biking, we made our way to Listman's, an art supply store, and bought some acrylic paint. We wanted to get started on our painting of the antique map we've drawn out.
Here's what we have so far. Still have a lot of work.............
We are still working on the colors and have some shading, etc that needs to be done. Like I said we still have a lot to do. Right now I think it looks like a map you'd find in an elementary school classroom. (That an elementary school kid painted.) Well we can't all be painters now can we.
We had flounder for dinner with rice and asparagus. I made the rice and asparagus (olive oil and season all, bake for 10/15 min) and Jon cooked the fish, because he's the pro cook in the fam. The fish was unbelievable. He made a marinade of soy sauce, honey and wasabi and baked the fish for...... well however long until it was ready.
It was like melt in your mouth awesome. You should try it sometime. Very healthy. Then I ate about 7 thin mints. Way to go Steph!
Today we headed over to the base to buy a pedometer so I would know how many miles I was jogging when I was outside. Then we headed out for a three mile jog/walk. I haven't made it up to three miles jogging yet. I'm slowly working my way up. We're taking it easy for the rest of the day. Gonna work on our awesome painting ;)
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
