The Weekend

It's the weekend, for me anyway. I have the next four days off and lots of plans!
Hockey games on Friday & Saturday nights, some kind of family thing on Sunday, probably ice skating, the kids love it, a couple hours at Bubba's school tomorrow and ... well, back on the workout wagon. I signed up for the ChelanMan triathlon in July. Gotta get my winter coat off and get my lungs back in shape.

I was ready to go to the pool to swim this morning only to find out lap swim isn't until 11:00. Hmmmm, so I went to the park for a walk instead. Once I got there I had some reservations. There was recently a homicide (young female) in my town, and the perp is still out there. Should I really be hanging out at the park where there are some remote areas all alone? I did the walk anyway, but I was hyper-attentive and super aware of everyone and everything and unplugged in lesser seen areas to be able to hear better. Paranoid? Maybe, I just like to think I am being cautious.

It was nice to get some fresh air. Very nice. I am looking forward to getting my bike out and taking some afternoon rides soon. The weather has been very mild, warmish even (50's). Maybe on Saturday?

My Honey and I sat down last night and actually worked out a tentative plan (which now needs some refining since there isn't a lap swim on Thursday mornings) for working out and changing our diet so we can be healthier. Since he is doing a lot more cooking lately, I can't wait to see what else he has in store. So far he's using a LOT less red meat and has even added vegies! He also thinks we should cut out beer and wine though. Baby steps :)

Red wine's good for you! It's just the moderation that's hard.
