Okay, so I’ve been a bit lax on my posting. I know. I’m sorry. This weekend was crazy busy! My boyfriend’s parents stayed with us, I had a football game, we hosted dinner for both of our families, and went pumpkin picking and to a cider mill. *PHEW!*
If you would like to read more…
Friday morning, my boyfriend A and I went to get a pumpkin from a little u-pick place by our apartment complex. The weather was so nice! It ended up being we couldn’t pick just one, so we ended up with 5 pumpkins - two each, and one little one for our cat. The smallest was around 5 pounds, and the largest was probably closer to 30. We hauled those by hand all the way across the patch, into the car, and then up the stairs to our second floor apartment. His parents showed up a couple of hours later, while I was at marching band practice.
Saturday I woke up at 6:45, quickly got ready for the day, and left around 7:20 for the football field. I was a guide for one of the high schools that we were hosting, so I was running all over the place. More than once I broke a sweat, and not from wearing the wool uniform. I climbed more stairs that day than I have in a while haha. After the game, I came home and had dinner with both sets of parents. It was really, a nice day.
Sunday, A’s parent’s left, and we went to a cider mill that is relatively close by. We walked all over the mill, including back where the orchards are and where they make both the cider and the wine. We tasted quite a few of their samples, and ended up buying regular cider, hard cider, doughnuts (of which I’ve had 2), apples, and caramel apples. The weather was gorgeous, and we were outside for about an hour and a half.
While I wasn’t able to get out and run, or do any sort of specific in-home exercising or go to the fitness center, I still feel like I was able to get some sort of exercising in this weekend.
Today I have marching band practice, and then afterwards I’m practicing with a group of us who are taking this video and making it a flash mob dance for our Halloween practice. It’s going to be so funny, and I’m really excited!
Side note - I drove by the fitness center this morning at 8am, and there was nobody inside. I would feel okay going in there tomorrow morning and getting a feel for the machines and such if there wasn’t anyone around. Bad news - it was fully lit, and the windows are ceiling-to-floor facing the road.
