No matter how you spin it, Monday will never be my favorite day of the week. I did the usual grind at work and then hauled it home and down to The Cave for 30 minutes of Pump & Burn goodness - complete with heavier weights for each segment. The heavier weights were challenging, but in a good way! I followed the workout with a black bean burger from the stash in my freezer (thrown in a skillet for about 5-6 min/side) and crashed hard.
Oh Tuesday...you were like another Monday this week. Seriously, this was the day where nothing went right. I was running late for work, and in my rush to feed the rabbits, wear matching socks, and get out the door, I managed to forget both my breakfast and a key component of my lunch at home! There was exactly zero chance of going home over lunch to fetch those things, so I made do with a banana for breakfast (I had one lurking in my office) and made a mad dash to the sushi place up the street for a take out lunch.

Wednesday was much better than Tuesday. I made it to work on time and all of my food for the day made it too! I got out at a reasonable hour, scurried home, threw some shrimp in a colander under cold, running water to thaw, and hit the trainer for a solid hour! I usually only ride for 45 minutes, but I need to start increasing my time in the saddle. I was pretty engrossed in what I was watching (Kona footage from 2009 - if you want to know) and felt good, so I went the full hour...and loved it!

Another day of work was followed by the most awesome run I've had in a very long time.

I had plans to go out to dinner with Little Brother tonight, but the actual time of said dinner was kind of up in the air due to his job. He could get done with work at 2pm or he could end up working until 8pm. I figured that if he got out early, I'd skip working out and if he got out late, I'd hit the pool for a while. Guess who got out of work early? We met up around 5:30pm, stuffed ourselves with Italian food, and caught up...it was really nice. Of course after all that food, I was couch bait since I didn't think it would endear me to the folks at the pool if I tried swimming and ended up tossing my cookies!
Believe me when I say that I wish all my Saturdays started out like this:

Today was all about getting ready for next week. Laundry was done. Groceries were bought. Walter got his weekly bath (Normally it's not advisable to bathe bunnies, but we're doing this with the full blessing of his vet. His mobility issues cause him to end up with urine burns if we don't bathe his lower half regularly.) I think my favorite part of the day was the hour Walter spent snuggling with me and napping on my chest afterward. He even got super-playful at one point and was tossing around his blanket until he made himself a tent...and then promptly took a nap!
On to another (busy) week!
