Tonight G and I are volunteering to help a friend pull carpet and start painting a new home. We did all this stuff ourselves last year, and I know how exhausting and calorie-burning it can be. Of course, I gained weight while we were doing it because we always ended the day with pizza or fast food--definitely a "two sides of the coin" thing here.
Kristi of KristiSummer recently posted about unexpected exercise, and that's sort of my mindset with these summer weekends. I'm not training for a run any more so I don't get those looong runs to counterbalance any bad behavior. Instead, I'm trying to gravitate (and convince others around me) toward active events instead of barbecues, eating out, drinking, etc.
Wish I had more interesting stuff to say, funny stories to tell, but I don't. Oh la.
