My nice weather day work-a-round
Thursday, February 26, 2009
We had great weather here but I had things to do. So I worked around them. I had to take my daughter to a 3pm appointment so I left work at 2pm got ready to run took her to her appointment which was 50 minutes long so I ran for 45 minutes and also stretched and did pushups while waiting for her to start and finish. Then went over to pick my other daughter up at 4:15pm and decided since I pay for daycare until 5:30 that I would just drop my other daughter off instead and leave my car at my daughter's daycare house and finish my run and got another 30 minutes in. So now it is about 4:50pm so I still need to go to the store and do the rest of my noncardio stuff. I take the girls to the park in between the store and my house let them play and use the playground equipment to finish out my workout and stretching. Then go to the store ask for a lime cilantro season tilapia and the butcher says he will cook it and it will be done in 20 minutes, I just wanted it seasoned but hey 20 minutes sounded great to me and he weighed the fish after he cooked it! So the girls and I walked around getting free samples and some other items and just had fun. Went home nuked some potatoes while I took a shower and had the girls peal an orange each and eat it and a dry salad while they waited for me to shower and get their potatoes done. Plated the food and warmed it one last time just in time for them when they finished their fruits and vegetables, then warmed and weighed mine and we were all sitting down and eating. We had grabbed a small iced marble cake at the store and I gave them each a piece for doing so well. I had a piece of angel food cake with lite reddi whip and 335 grams of blueberries mixed together plus a .25 serving of smukers strawberry syrup topping. Then we read a book changed to pj's and watched a movie. My 1st grader then did her homework and they brushed their teeth and just in time for when my wife got home and put them to bed. Nice how it all worked out! Ok that is the long version of how I was able to still get outside even though I thought I would be to busy. Weather is supposed to be 38 degrees tomorrow and it is my day off from working out after 4 days on and running about 40 miles over those 4 days(2 of them outside!).
