Better-Body-Steward, Days 12 - 15
This weekend went in a flash, and I do believe this week will, as well. We were treated all weekend long! Friday, a friend wanted to take us to dinner. So, after cleaning & communing with M, Dear, M, our friend I will dubb "K," and I went to a fabulous Thai restaurant! It was my first time trying duck, and it was delicious (M let us try her dish). I had the spices Japanese eggplant dish, which never disappoints. :) I did not exercise Friday, but stayed active with house chores, as I surmised. Saturday I was able to exercise, and saw an increase in my reps and endurance! It also saw me being delivered dinner by a couple friends who wanted to spend time with us at home! Yesterday saw Dear and I busily involved with our church. Last night saw the beginning of a special meeting that is lasting through Wednesday. Dear's father and stepmother took us to lunch, and I came home long enough in the afternoon to grab the food stuff that I was making for the dinner following the evening service. After the service and dinner, we took our friend K to his work an hour away. On our way there, we experienced sleet, snow, snow/rain mix. On our way back home, we experienced slightly icy roads, snow, snow/rain mix, and saw some accidents. No sign of it at home today. No exercising was accomplished yesterday, but lots of activities! Today I stayed curled up in my warm, cozy room for way too long. Once I got going, I started the usual morning chores, had a late breakfast/early lunch. Doing more chores, I enjoyed more peace seeing order established. After ordering Dear's birthday gift, receiving a call from Mom that my sister, S #2, received her birthday card and gift, having my devotional, I did exercising! I saw an increase in reps, endurance, and additions to my routine. I added push ups, and another form of sit-ups. I ended up exercising over 30 minutes, including my warm-ups and stretching! I have only God to thank!
