Today for the first time in I don’t know how long, I got to have a real sleep in. It was awesome! I woke up very early, as usual, but today, I just rolled over and went back to sleep. At home I never seem to be able to do this. There is always something going on or things to do. But at the cottage, life is at a much slower pace, schedules are slack, and life is good. So, when I woke up at 6:30, I just smiled, pulled the covers up, and rolled over. I didn’t get out of bed until 10am. It was heaven. I didn’t sleep the whole time, but it was so nice to just lay in bed and rest. Found this image online. I don’t think I’m as bad as this…but I sure could be!
When I finally did get up, I put on my run gear, had a bagel and peanut butter and then hit the road for a 3 mile run. I did a there and back along the lake road. Man, I really should have gotten up earlier because it was HOT! But I survived and would not trade my fantastic sleep in for a cooler run!
After the run, it was time for lunch. My brother-in-law BBQ’d up some spicy Italian sausages. Not exactly on my clean eating plan, but not all that bad either, according to MyFitnessPal. I skipped the bun, just had the sausage, and added some carrots and celery. That sausage was delicious. Nice and spicy and I dipped it in some spicy mustard and had some caramelized onions too. Delish!
We are in charge of dinner tomorrow night, so we headed into town to pick up a few things. On the menu is chicken souvlaki and cucumber salad. All clean, all delicious. I also grabbed some whole wheat pita and a variety of hummus dips to have as a little appetizer. I’ve got to remember to get everything marinating tomorrow afternoon!
Once we were back from town it was time for some of this:
Nothing beats sitting on the dock, watching the kids play in the water, and enjoying the sunshine. It was a perfect afternoon.
Tonight, we had a fire and the kids roasted marshmallows and made S’mores. I treated my self to a couple of s’mores too. So gooey, so chocolaty, and so good!
Now I’m off to bed, since I’ve got 6 miles (10km) to run tomorrow morning. I’m going at 8:30 before it gets too hot and I’m running with my friend Lianne. She is my hubby’s cousin who has a cottage 3 places down from ours. It will be nice to have someone to run with keep me company. She’s a pretty good runner, so hopefully she can keep me moving for all 6 miles!
Hope you all had an awesome Saturday. I sure did!
