My weekend was fantastic!

I had a great weekend! Friday I was home from work (it was my AWS day) and I had a ton of stuff I wanted to get done. I got most of it done...didn't get to cleaning the apartment or working out but got Stephen's V-day present and 8 loads of laundry done as well as watched "Waitress"--such a sweet movie. Saturday we went looking for new running shoes for me and more workout shorts for Stephen plus a lot of other running around. I found some new shoes which I'm excited to try today! Sunday we did our usual grocery store, movie, getting ready for the week. We saw "There Will Be Blood" yesterday. It's a good movie, Stephen liked it more than me (only b/c the movie is 3 hours long and I had to pee so badly by the end of the movie, I was very uncomfortable). Stephen got an MP3 player yesterday so he spent most of the evening figuring it out. It's the same brand as my MP3 player but the way you load the songs is completely different. I also got a heart rate monitor to wear when I'm running. I've been wanting one so that I can keep track of my heart rate when I'm running outside. I think it will be an excellent motivator for me!

Huge success this weekend as far as eating goes!! I did so great! Friday I didn't do so well (gave into a huge craving for Oatmeal raisin cookies I had all last week) but Saturday and Sunday, I rocked! Honestly, I can't take too much credit for it b/c Stephen has started running/working out again and he's really making an effort to lose the weight he's gained over the last year. Having him make healthy choices really helps me make healthy choices. The weekend was so much easier when there was another person making good choices too! He also wants to start going to the gym on the weekends like we used to do. Yea!! I've got to tell him tonight how much I enjoy us both making healthy choices and working out together.

Alright, got to go work on this project some more. I've set a goal of getting so much done before I can go run and try out my new shoes and my new heart rate monitor. I'm so glad I have something motivating me to get out there today b/c it is coooooold.

Waitress was really cute!

I want a HRM too, just to make sure I'm not stressing my body too much. What brand did you end up getting?

Isn't it wonderful when your spouse is on board w/ healthy living & fitness, make things soooo much easier!

Have a great week :)
