“No leaving the house Sunday”

Ah, Sunday afternoon!

If you havent noticed, the last few weeks I have taken Saturday’s off from blogging – which in all honestly, it will probably stay that way because it’s a nice little break for the week!

But backing up, Friday night I headed to training as I had planned. For the 10 of us that showed up, he had a nice cardio circuit worked up for us. Jumping jacks, running holding a medicine ball out in front of us while kicking our butts (literally, kicking our feet high in the back), mountain climbers with the slider discs, stationary bike, and other various heart rate boosting moves.

Needless to say, it was an extra sweaty night. Not to give you TMI but I have been sweating more than usual lately. Im not sure if this has to do with the fact that I’m drinking more water, or if our training studio is kind of small and it gets hot fast. At least I’m not stinky.


Yesterday was a super busy day around these parts.

We spent 2 hours with an accountant having Torrance’s taxes done. Yes, that was a marvelous afternoon… being “self-employed” turns taxes into an extra exhausting process Winking smile

Though I was semi entertained by the accountant’s dog. He was hilarious and reminded me of Yoda.

Anyway, before hand we stopped by Starbucks and sat out and enjoyed the sun. It was absolutely gorgeous all day yesterday – especially for February.

And today is yuck and they are calling for a light snow tonight, interesting no?

After that, I spent the afternoon cleaning, grocery shopping, and we took Kona on a nice long walk.

I felt like I was rushing around most of the day so I managed to make us just a quick dinner.

I love this brand rice it is super simple and delish! I added some steamed sugar snap peas. And I always pick the chicken out of the rice though, it has a weird taste to me….

But add some shrimp sautéed in teriyaki sauce and voila! Super easy dinner!

And I enjoyed lots of wine. I actually poured myself a glass and then shortly after Lauren reminded me that it was National Wine Drinking Day! Phew, good thing I was already on it, I would have been upset if I didnt get to celebrate!


I was up annoyingly early this morning so I started out the day cooking us a mondo breakfast.

Last night I officially deemed today “No leaving the house Sunday” and if all goes as planned, my day will be filled with lots of relaxing. I havent had a day where I actually don’t leave the house for quite a while, so it should be nice.


And at some point I will have to meander down to the apartment gym and get a run in. (That doesn’t actually qualify as “leaving the house” does it?) I need to start getting some workouts in on the weekend again – I miss them!

Have a great Sunday, I’m off to relax because unlike a lot of you lucky ducks, I unfortunately have to work tomorrow. Boooo.


  • Do you sweat a lot when you workout or not so much?
  • Do you ever have days (or weekends) that you just dont leave the house at all?

  1. YES! I absolutely love when I have days during the weekend when I don’t leave the house.
    They are the best kind for some major relaxation! 🙂 Have a great day!

  2. Ahhh thank goodness the sweating thing isn’t just me! I have been noticing the same thing – I barely sweat before I started drinking more water and now I’m drenched. Today I’m doing the same thing – just sitting in my apartment being lazy…. I wonder if it really will snow?

    I think the best part about not leaving the house for a whole day is not using any gas! It’s so expensive right now!

    I didn’t know that you were self-employed!

    Believe it or not, I spend so much time IN my apartment (studying, school stuff, blog stuff) that when I have free time I LOVE getting out and about. Actually, it depends on where I’m going– definitely NOT to school haha

  5. We didn’t leave the house today, either! Neither one of us was feeling very well, so we listened to a sermon online rather than going to church like we usually do. And then we did lots of cleaning, organizing, etc for our move. Very exciting stuff around here. 😉

    And this should be a rule once a weekend 🙂

  7. Oh. I love not leaving the house. It makes me so happy. If I had a treadmill, I’d probably be a complete hermit I probably shouldn’t tell my husband that or he will never let me get one!!
