Yesterday I got up early and rode my bike for one hour. I felt great after. Hung out at home, grilled some chicken and veggies (my son is interested in grilling so we did it together). I really wasn't hungry during the day, so I didn't eat much.
Today, when I woke up, I had no desire to jump up and get on my bike. I had no desire to get up at all. I just felt tired. So I slept in till about 10am. I spent the day at home just piddling around.
I finished knitting a baby blanket yesterday, too. One that was on the needles for-freakin-ever! Anyway, I decided since that project was finished, I could start my next project which is a scarf. I spent all damn day looking for pattern. Why I didn't keep it with the yarn is a mystery. I couldn't stop looking until I found it, either. I'm a little obsessive compulsive when I'm looking for something. I HAVE to find it or my mind won't shut up. So, after about 4 hours of searching, I found it. Well that was mentally exhausting, so I didn't feel like riding my bike this evening, either.
I started the scarf and I'm glad I did. It is really turning out to be soothing to my soul. There is something about the feel of the yarn and the repetitive movement that is very relaxing to me. I've missed knitting and I think I'm going to make it a regular part of my day again.
Here is what the scarf looks like right now.
This is the blanket I finished. It's not a gift or anything, I just like knitting baby things. And they are great to have on hand just in case I need a shower gift.
I plan to get up in the morning and ride. Maybe I just needed a me day, with out focusing on diet or fitness. I don't really feel guilty about not working out, but I do have a slight fear that the fat will creep back on during the night, lol ;)
