I was actually planning to get my sleeping pattern in order this weekend but then I started the Gossip Girl season 5 marathon on Friday which continued on Saturday night and whole Sunday too. I have a love-hate relationship with this tv series, although I love seeing New York (one of my favorite cities!), the storyline is completely messed up and some characters are so horrible that it is sometimes really going on my nerves.
Now that I am finishing this season and will finally get it out of my system, I can finally move on with my life…or at least until the season 6 is available on Watchever but until then I still have Grey’s Anatomy to finish too. The fabulous life of a series junkie! *sigh*
I’ve been mostly relaxing (translation: being lazy) this weekend, except for my scheduled outdoor run on Sunday which went unfortunately pretty bad. The sun was shining and it looked so nice and warm outside but then as soon as I stepped outside, the cold hit me right in the face. I thought that sunny 4 degrees Celsius will be warm and I was so wrong but I never quit so I just sucked it up and went on my run anyway. It was beautiful, so many people and dogs were out on a walk at the lake, the birds were singing, the ducks and swans were swimming on the lake. I will never get tired of this lake!
The 5 minutes warmup walk started out great but then the 7 run-walk intervals were terrible. My pace was slow and I got side stitches all the way till the end. I was so happy when I got to the 5 minutes walk cooldown and then finally finished and got home. Running on the treadmill is so much easier, boring but easier.
I also did some house chores like vacuum cleaning (I actually got tricked into it, my boyfriend asked me to hold the vacuum cleaner while he plugged it in and then quickly took off to get drinks, haha so funny! *evil look* he did cook yummy food all weekend so I guess he compensated for tricking me) and doing loads of laundry because I slacked off during the holidays and it got way out of control. I even managed to forget my house keys in my running leggings before putting it to be washed but leggings, keys and washing machine survived just fine.
I have not only accidentally washed my keys this weekend but also my FitBit One which I forgot in the pocket of my jeans. I realized it only in the evening when the MyFitnessPal and FitBit apps displayed a lot of calories burnt even if I haven’t worn the FitBit the entire day. It is still working (phew!) and it recorded around 3800 steps!
We’ve also cleaned up the freezer this weekend and I found this on the bottom hidden all alone so I just had to put it out of its misery! I love ice cream and I love chocolate, what can be better than chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips covered with chocolate?
I can’t believe that the weekend is already over but this ice cream and the final episode of GG s05 was the perfect ending to a lazy weekend.
