Going to the gym or cleaning my house/ Chocolate #9 Winner

This weekend has been a lazy weekend for me. I got up Saturday hoping to get a good workout in.  When I got to the gym, I got on the elliptical and got 30 minutes in .  I had gotten a new DVD earlier in the week and I  was wanting  to give  it a try.   As I'm getting started my left eye kept watering so it was making for  a blurry view and my nose literally wouldn't quit running.  So between wiping my eye and blowing my nose constantly, I called it quits. At least I got there and gave it  a try. 

Sunday I decided to sleep in. When  I got up I listened to the weather, I wasn't quite sure what it was doing outside.  The weather man  said the road were a little  slick do to misting  in the night.  Being honest with myself, I really wasn't wanting to go to the gym anyway.

I've been letting  my house go, due to filling in at the bank. They have been short, due to some people leaving. 

When I get up at 4.00 in the morning to hit the gym, by the time I get home from work I am spent.  I can go 2-3 days like that, but by that 3rd day all I want to do is crash after work. So this morning I just felt like I really needed to stay home and get some cleaning done.  Even my hubby was commenting on some fuzz bunnies on the floor.  That is not a good sign.

I'm feeling good now. Got my house cleaned and am ready to face another week.

  3. Other than running I had a pretty lazy weekend, feels so good! Maybe tomorrow I will do laundry :)

  4. I did my laundry on Saturday!

    Love your new header, a lot!

    Congrats to Kim.

  5. Last weekend was a completely lazy weekend for me - I think you need one every once in a while, to recharge.

  6. We runners do accumulate lots of laundry, no? And it feels good to work through the piles. Love your new header!

  7. argh, I hate house cleaning...we just moved in and I know with this house being larger, I'm gonna hate cleaning even MORE :(

    Yea, I love lazy weekends! Sometimes it's what we ALL need!

  8. Having a clean house is such a great feeling! Congrats to Kim!

  9. I had kind of a lazy weekend, but I'm on a 30 minutes of exercise everyday kick, so I still managed to run both days.

    Today was the clean the house day. Took me most of the day to do just the living room and the dining room because I just couldn't stay on task LOL.

  10. agree that a clean house is a great feeling! glad you are doing well and starting the week off right! i got those socks from gizmo socks online i believe...well my dad ordered them for me for Christmas and i think that is the brand!

  11. Lazy weekends are the norm at our house if we aren't traveling. I enjoy trying to knock out my to do list during the week so I don't feel guilty living on the couch for two days watching tv and playing on our phones and computers.

  12. Good thing you're able to clean your house. Actually, you can do both at the same time! Have you tried that before?

  13. My weekends are always busy! From running to church it's non stop!!
