Weekend Warrior – Colleen At The Ridge
I work hard during the week. I have my job, of course...the kids, the house, the yard, etc. Plus, I work out with super trainer, Annie twice a week. I eat healthy, and am being pretty darn good about not having weekday cocktails. By the weekend, I am ready to have some fun and relax.
This past weekend, I had a fundraiser to go to for Big Sky Youth Empowerment. I had some cocktails. Saturday, we bbq'd, played badminton and soccer with the kids, and had a few beers. Sunday, we went to the carnival, family fun day, and bbqd in the late day sunshine. Oh, and I had a few beers.
Now, to Monday, and my workout with Annie. It hurt...bad! I was sweating. Not a little, nice girl sweat, but full on sweating, breathing hard, hurting. I did it to myself.
My new goal is not to go crazy on the weekends. It's difficult during the summer. I love to get together with my friends and cook. I love making pies, and yes, I love to have a little wine or beer at the lake! This weekend, we are getting together with a bunch of people at the lake. I am going to go waterskiing, paddleboating, play basketball and volleyball. Lots of exercise, but I find my workouts with Annie still hurt if I abuse food and wine.
So, let's see if I can do this! Like Annie says, I still have to live my life, have some fun, and treat myself. I am quite good at treating myself, now I just have to see if I can keep from going overboard.
Wish me luck, and join me at The Ridge! I just love that place!
