My weekend was easy and relaxing as usual. My life isn’t that exciting, sometimes pretty boring but I like it that way. After Saturday’s long run I relaxed in the afternoon with some reading, blog reading and watching TV. I also took a nap of an hour which was very nice. Saturday night we watched a movie “Date Night”.
Sunday more of the same, running and working out in the morning. Relaxing and taking a nap in the afternoon.
Today back to work and when I got there all the servers were down. Nobody could do anything for 2 hours, after that we had access to our documents on the server but still no email till lunch break. These days we depend so much on our computers that when everything is down, it’s hard to find something to do.
Weekly workout review
Yesterday morning I had an easy run of 4.8K (3 miles) to do. I have never run the day after a long run and had no idea how it would go. It turned out to be one of my best runs since the past weeks. It went easy. It rained the entire time but I don’t really mind running in the rain.
When I got home I changed to dry clothes and did workout 1 of Jillian Michaels 6 week six-pack. This was tough after the run and have to be honest that I skipped some exercises. Those of you who are familiar with Jillian’s workouts know she can kick your butt. Well she certainly kicked mine because I feel it today 🙂
I’m very, very happy with my weekly results of last week. It’s getting a little bit better every week.
Book I’m reading
Tess Gerritsen – Body double
Still reading this one.
Movies I’ve seen last week
We have a subscription to a movie channel since we don’t go to the cinema that often. Most movies are aired about a year after they were in the cinema. That’s why you probably will notice I’m watching mostly movies that are 1 year old or older.
Those of you who are of my age probably watched the A-team when you were little. I still see a part of it every day because they keep airing it here over and over again every weekday. As to be expected this movies was made as action movies are nowadays. It was a nice movie to watch, one you don’t have to think about that much. But we both find the original A-team more sympathetic than the new one.
I heard a lot about this movie last year but to be honest I didn’t think it was that funny. It made me smile a few times but never had to laugh out loud. It was an okay movie but not one I am going to watch again.
TV shows I’ve been watching last week
Rookie Blue (last episode season 1), Modern family (rerun), Covert Affairs.
Beef tenderloin with green beans and zucchini in a soy-honey sauce, served with rice.
S*x on the beach (use the * because I don’t want my spambox to explode by search engines for this word). It was a delicious cocktail. We had some Port Salut cheese on toast with it.
365 days photo challenge 2011

Mushrooms? Aren’t they supposed to grow in Autumn instead of August?
Day 226 – Sunday August 14
My little workout buddy. As soon as I lay down on the mat for ground exercises Bella stood next to me with her ball, thinking it was playing time.
Highlight of the week
Great workout week.
Quote of the week
Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.
