This morning, I woke up incredibly sore from yesterday’s workout. I’m really feeling it in my butt, calves and back! I spent some time on the floor with a foam roller and a tennis ball. Feels a little better, but I feel a migraine coming on from my stiff shoulders. Nothing a little Dunkin’s can’t cure!
First thing, Irving and I set out on a walk to run some errands, coffee in hand!
It felt great to get the blood circulating. I’m still a little nervous about my shin splints since I’m running a half marathon next Sunday! So I am just taking it easy until then in the hopes it heals a little before the race.
Just as we were heading back home, it started to rain (I LOVE THE RAIN!) Today will be spent folding laundry, Costco and grocery shopping. Kathy Kaehler coined a phrase called ‘Sunday Setup’, and it means that every Sunday, you plan, shop and prep all your meals for the week. Irving got right to work on Sunday paper coupon cutting!
And I plotted out our meals for the week. This makes it a little less daunting. We are planning our meals around other events we have planned this week, so hopefully it will keep us organized.
I hope the rain keeps the crowds away from Costco today!
We do our weekly menu on Sunday too. It makes the weeknights so much easier. We know what we are cooking and don’t have to think. I love Google Calendar for keeping track of the meals. Easy to look back that way too.
Oh I never thought to use Google Calendar for that. Good idea!
I also love it for the comments section when you create events. We find lots of recipes online, so then we just put the link in there.
Your “Very Blogger Saturday” looked amazing! And I think it’s a great idea to use Sunday to prepare; in fact, I’ve already started! Thanks for the inspiration!
My butt is so sore today too. And my hamstrings ooooouch!
I had problems with shin splints for a long time. They really hurt. I foam-rolled, used heating pads, iced, stretched and compressed and they would not go away for the longest time. I feel your pain! Hope they get better before your half-mary!
Where did the rain come from?
It was great meeting you yesterday.
I think I’ll try to do a Sunday set up, too. Well, minus the shopping. Just the planning. Because leaving the house sounds too exhausting.
Fun meeting you too! I ❤ the rain!
