Lazy Sunday

I decided that after running 14 miles in two days that I would designate Sunday as my rest day for the week.  So I slept in and lazed about most of the morning.  I drank coffee, did a wee bit of housework and watched television.  Sometime in the early afternoon, I convinced Mark to go for a walk with me because I needed something from the store anyway and what better weather could we ask for a nice afternoon walk?  We had a lovely walk that lasted a little over 45 minutes.   When we got back home, I realized I was starving and that I had not eaten at all and it was already 2:00!  So I ate a little bit of chicken and rice with salad on top and half an apple.  We were invited to Mark's grandmother's house for dinner last night, and we were having BBQ so I didn't want to eat very much before heading over there, but I was still hungry after a bit so I ate a graham cracker with peanut butter and raisins on it.  I know from experience that if I'm too hungry before going to dinner that I will pig out.  At dinner I ate a rib, some brisket, a small scoop of potato salad (mustard based so it's better calorie-wise anyway), a small scoop of broccoli salad, a small scoop of beans and about 10 pieces of fried okra.  I was a little too full for comfort, but not sick so I did okay.

When we got back home I got started on the last load of laundry, folding the laundry and Monday's dinner.  I bitched out on lunches, decided to give the kiddo lunch money instead of making his lunch and to worry about mine in the morning.  Mark had leftover ribs for his lunch.  Sunday night is prime time TV night for me.  I hardly watch any television throughout the week, but Sunday is my night.  My line up starts at 7:00 with Once Upon a Time (LOVE this new show!), then Dexter at 8:00, Homeland at 9:00 (LOVE) and Walking Dead at 10:00.  I spent Once Upon a Time chopping vegetables in front of the TV and running to the kitchen on commercials, then I spent most of Dexter in the kitchen cooking.  I was getting a big crock pot full of chili ready for tonight's dinner. :D  For some reason I just haven't been as hooked by Dexter as I have the past several seasons.  I'm not sure if it's the show or if it's me, or if perhaps it's the aftermath of Breaking Bad and the new glow of Once Upon a Time and Homeland.  I still enjoy it, and I still want to know what's going on, but I just don't feel the same pull I used to.  I can't wait to see what happens on The Big C next season!!!  That and Shameless!  I have to say Showtime has if nothing else a great line up of series.  Anyway, I only managed to fold about half the laundry before I retired to the bedroom, but at least the chili was in the fridge ready to put on the crock pot this morning. Sunday was a pretty slow, lazy day, and I didn't accomplish much, but I feel absolutely rested this morning so oh well, maybe I needed it!
