That was sort of the theme of my weekend. I had no real set in stone plans except for a 1st bday party on Sunday afternoon. Of course this is the type of situation that usually makes me nuts cause I feel like I’m just wasting time off having nothing to do & I get bored/lonely & want to be doing something! But I actually was good with an open schedule. Perhaps I’m learning to embrace it? Lol. Yeah right.
Friday after work I went to the gym which isn’t my normal routine. But it was a no kickball no plans Friday night. And since the gym trainers are being so great about modifying the workouts for me I figured it would be smaller classes rather than Saturday morning so easier for them. Which I was right only 5 people in class so it was fun. I was then going to get some take out sushi to go hang at the beach for sunset but I got a text some friends were going to a bar to hang & eat so I joined them instead. It was a good low key evening with friends but the bar was super jam packed & overwhelming if I have to be honest which wasn’t really what I wanted to unwind after the week.
Saturday I started out with nothing. I slept in. Well not really but I didn’t have an alarm set! Went grocery shopping. Made myself a decent healthy breakfast. Yup I’m trying to follow the gym challenge when I can! Of course I also ate a bunch of ice cream too. lol I watched tv, kept my foot propped up & rested. I went to church later where some of the girls invited me to dinner afterwards which was fun. It was so nice to sit around & giggle about dating & guys & so forth! They are a group I don’t really know very well but I liked them & was glad I went with when they asked.
This morning I started with trying the weekly 5k. I haven’t been in a few weeks but I figured if I took it slow I’d be ok. The others couldn’t join so I went at my own pace. It was so enjoyable to walk along the beach & be out early before the crazy hustle of the day starts. While walking one of the girls from last night invited me to a polo match in the afternoon. Her date couldn’t come last minute so I was like sure why not?! We channeled our inner Pretty Woman (minus the hooker part) & had a blast! I then went to the bday party which was originally the only thing I had planned all weekend.
Isn’t it funny how things work out?? You have nothing planned & if you stay open life throws opportunities at you. I am very blessed. I guess last weekend worked like that too. I’m realizing especially with this sprained ankle that I need to give myself downtime to recharge & rest. Even more so than I had thought a few months ago. And I’m learning to be ok with having nothing planned cause it doesn’t mean I will be stuck doing nothing. 😁
