This dog was made for walkin’

I was able to peel myself off the couch after 4 episodes of Mad Men. Sheesh. I’m such a bum.

Layla and I ran some errands, then we headed over to Nose Hill Park for a long hike.

That place is super hilly! We got in some running here and there as well, but I had to be quite careful not to twist my ankle on some of the rocks and holes along the path. Layla was in heaven.

Some great scenery, per usual for Calgary!

I’m a smart lady too, and brought lotsa aqua for the little one. She was huffin and puffin.

And my favorite pic from the walk:

Once we trekked our way back, I needed some protein and veggies to hold me over until dinner. I came up with this bowl:

Spinach topped with scrambled eggs, onion/poppyseed dressing, and a dallop of ketchup. It hit the spot!

Big to-do’s for dinner tonight! I’ve already got some schtuff in the ol’ hot box.

Here’s something to think about: how would you fill your day if you weren’t working?

I had intentions of getting my workouts done early in the day, but they seem to still revolve around the evening hours. I do, however, get to be out with Layla a lot more, so I am moving a heck of a lot more than when I was sitting at a darn desk all day. And I get to actually make meals rather than whip a quick smoothie or have hard boiled eggs when I get home from work and have to dash off to the gym. Even though I enjoy these luxuries, I do miss the regimen that requires me to be places at certain times. Thoughts?

  1. I think I would do basically what you’re doing! Lots of doggie playtime mixed with lots of cooking and workouts. Oh, and reading and tv watching. Although, I do find it very difficult to get to the gym when I don’t have to be going out for something else…that’s why I always have to go on my way to work or on my way home. It has always been hard for me to make a special trip just to the gym, which is why I never get there on weekends.
    Also, I wanted you to know that I saw your pin from Jillian Michaels “Unless you puke, faint, or die, keep going” and it really helped push me through some serious cardio sets in Kix last night. Yay!

  2. I feel exactly the same way! however, when I have ‘days off’ I do like to get my workout done early, although it is nice to sometimes have the morning to do whatever you want and then lots of energy to workout in the evening! Lots of cooking/baking would most certainly happen:)
