Rain, Lunch Bags, Football and Sore Muscles

Well, believe it or not, I actually intended to post something sooner than now, but it just didn't happen for one reason or another. That's life I guess. Monday we saw the sun for the first time in days which was a nice reprieve from all the rain we have been getting. I, however, didn't really get to enjoy any of said sunshine because I was in front of a computer all day, but at least it peeked out from behind the clouds and hopefully some of you were able to enjoy it. 

My weekend was rather uneventful and in fact the epitome of boring. In addition to having the fourth as a holiday, we also had the fifth off and so I was at home for four straight days. I had grand intentions of doing some yard work and even buying some much needed gravel for where I park and new mulch for the flower beds and none of that got done because of the rain. Now I'm thinking I will wait until some time in the fall before doing these things so it will be cooler out which makes for much better working conditions. Then again, I might get a wild hair one weekend soon and go ahead and bite the bullet and get it done. You just never know. 

I did manage to get out of the house and peruse the aisles of Wal-Mart and Target for a couple of hours last Friday. I bought a new lunch bag at Wal-Mart for all of $8.88! I figured if it ends up stinking really bad after multiple uses I won't mind too much throwing it since it was less than $10. My friend Melissa had suggested a Thirty-one lunch bag and I have actually used one of those before as well, but it became stinky too and also was worn out and starting to tear at the ends. Maybe I'm just really rough on lunch bags. At any rate, I have a new one that is very brightly colored which isn't really my style, but hey, it's not like I had a lot to chose from. 

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. I did some grocery shopping at my local Publix on Saturday and went to church on Sunday and other than that, there wasn't much else going on unless you count a visit to the funeral home which seems to happen more often than not these days. 

Monday night my dad and I went to the VBC to watch the Alabama Hammers play in the Professional Indoor Football League Championship game. I can't say it was the most exciting night of football, but it was something to do and it was nice to get out of the house for a change. My brother joined us as well, arriving just a few minutes before the game started. We all ended up leaving the game with multiple coupons for free Parmesan cheese bites from Domino's since the Hammers scored a ridiculous amount of points. My dad also sun the wheel at the Papa Murphy's booth and won a $15 gift card and I did the same, winning a $10 gift card. So, we all walked away winners, even the Hammers who crushed the other team, Richmond. 

Tuesday night I had another WOW session and the personal trainer who usually leads us was out of town so we had Josh, whom I suggested I might add. Well, Josh worked our tushes off and I was beyond exhausted by the time I left. I had no doubt that I would find walking and sitting for that matter difficult come Wednesday. I went to bed about 9:30 and I don't remember the last time I fell asleep so quickly. 

Today is Wednesday and just as I suspected, walking, sitting, and just moving in general comes with pain, and guess what? We get Josh as our trainer again tomorrow! Bring on the ibuprofen

Yay for Josh the Trainer. Exercise pain is a good pain.
