Good morning, everyone. Another lovely day yesterday, wasn't it?
Yesterday I tried to make amends for Saturday's slip-up with the food and I think I did, more or less.
I really pushed the swimming and managed to get a bit breathless - not too much but enough to raise the pulse a bit which, I believe, makes it more fat burning. After an hour of that my muscles were buzzing. Then I went to the allotment and did some lifting, mowing, strimming and forking/weeding for a couple of hours. That has to be good for burning a few calories, surely.
After all that, I was feeling tired so I had my lunch in the garden and then sat out and read the paper. The sun was shining but it wasn't all that warm in the shade which is where I like to sit out.
I'm not a great fan of barbecues. I think the taste of barbied food is OK but not worth doing just for one. What I do love is the smell though, it's much better than the taste. They were having a barbie next door so I reclined in my comfy garden chair, read the paper, sipped my sparkling water and enjoyed the aroma while the sun shone and the birds sang. It was bliss.
I also had a very peaceful evening and another early night. It was a really lovely day.
Today I have a meeting at school, am helping out in the afternoon and then some tuition. I'm hoping that between the meeting and the helping I can get to the allotment for a bit more work. No swimming today though, there just isn't the time.
The cleaner couldn't come on Friday so is coming today instead. It'll be great to have a clean home by the evening.
That's about it really so have an enjoyable day. I'm awake very early so I shall get the planning all done and off my mind!
