Sometimes when I sleep for too long, I wake up feeling lethargic and sleepy for the rest of the day. Today I woke up feeling rejuvenated!
How many hours of sleep do you need to feel your best?
I think I function best on 7 – 8 hours of sleep.
Almost immediately after waking up, Ryan and I went to the gym for a Saturday morning workout. I did 20 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical while flipping back and forth between watching puppies play on the Animal Planet and Sandra Lee make a fabulous looking peanut butter mousse pie. I then took a BodyPump class that killed my legs.
After BodyPump, I joined Ryan on the basketball courts for a game of around the world. I held my own, but he still beat me. Ryan was on his game today. The boy wasn’t missing a shot!
Ryan and I came home two hungry people! I made us a filling breakfast of dippy eggs, Canadian bacon, whole wheat toast and sautéed mushrooms.
I ended up topping half of my whole wheat toast with peanut butter to satisfy my peanut butter craving after watching Sandra Lee make that delicious looking pie at the gym. 🙂
After breakfast, we took Sadie to the dog park to enjoy the sunny weather.
I rescued this lil’ guy from the doggie madness right when we arrived.
To show is appreciation for me saving his life, the little toad decided to pee on me. How sweet.
While I was placing the toad outside the dog park fence, Sadie was scouring the area for the perfect stick.
Sadie loves playing with sticks. For some reason she is not a good sharer when it comes to sticks. Balls and other toys she’ll share, but sticks? Oh no.
Eventually Sadie found an abandoned ball to play with and coerced us into throwing it for her a million times.
Ryan and I ended up lying in the grass soakin’ up the sun for a while. Since we’re both basically iridescent from the lack of sun we’ve been getting, it felt great. Sadie opted to relax in the shade.
We’re about to dig into some lunch before running a few errands.
Tonight we have a date night planned! January is my month to plan a special date and I’m taking Ryan on a boat tour of Winter Park. Winter Park is a cute little city right outside of Orlando. After the boat tour we have plans to go to Luma, a restaurant on Park Avenue in Winter Park for a romantic dinner. Ryan and I have never been and people rave about this restaurant so we’re excited to give it a go.
Happy weekend! 😀
