Saturday at the Park

6 Mar

Hey, hey, hey, it’s Saturday!

And a BIG BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister-in-law, Cheryl!

There’s a great park about a mile and a half from my mom’s house.  I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about it before.  It has a playground, soccer fields, walking paths, and a pond.  Since we’re house sitting for her this weekend, we thought it would be fun to run up there, do some upper body and abs, and run home.  And ya know what?   It was pretty great!

Once we got to the park, we did:

  • 50 crunches
  • 40 push-ups
  • 25 dips on a bench
  • 100 bicycle crunches
  • 25 inclince push-ups
  • 50 twisting crunches
  • 50 reverse crunches
  • 20 walking lunges

Yes, that’s right.  I do push-ups in pearls (and Coach sunglasses. Shut up.):

It was such a great workout! Okay, that’s a total lie. IT SUCKED.  We left the house too soon after eating, and the run there absolutely killed me.  I felt tired and I could barely run.  After we got to the park and got started with the calisthenics, I started to feel a little better.  We decided it might be best just to walk home.  Next time, I’ll digest a little longer before I hit the pavement.

After our workout, we headed down to St. Johns County to get some ideas for paint colors for the outside of the house. Right now, we’re thinking a pretty moss green with creamy white trim, a black roof and the grayish-brown colored stone.

Since we were on that side of town, a trip to Whole Foods was necessary.  It was the Hubby’s first trip to WF.  He had no idea how fantastic it was.  We scored:

  • Bananas for $0.69/lb
  • Braeburn apples for $0.99/lb
  • Almond butter
  • Snap peas
  • Yellow, Green and Red peppers:


Tomorrow morning, we’re heading downtown to run the bridges. With the River Run a week away, I need to get prepared. I know, its a little late, but its better than nothing….. right?
