The good - I went and helped my parents clean their yard. It took 2 days and I sweated a ton, so it was a good calorie burn and I am a little sore so that's not all bad!
The bad - no tennis due to a tournament
The ugly - Eating was TURRIBLE (really just the weekend). Exercise was TURRIBLE.
Monday - bowling (not pictured)
Saturday - 1 hour of weeding flowerbeds (not pictured)
Sunday - Almost 4 hours of weedeating, removing flowerbeds, edging, shoveling, mowing, basically yard work hell. (not pictured)
Friday night started off with Chris working really late and he didn't make it home until around 7 pm. He also had to work for a few hours on Saturday too, so we just decided to order Chinese food delivery and veg out until time to go to sleep. (We also watched "Her". As a ongoing theme to my weekend, let's just say that it was turrible too.)
Saturday, since Chris had to work a few hours, I decided to go do some car things and bring it to the shop to replace a tire on the car that we are selling. Well they didn't have it in stock and had to order it, so I went back to mom and dad's for (what I thought was) a brief visit. I decided that I've been promising to help them do some stuff around the house (i.e. yard), so I may as well see what I could do. I decided to dive in and get the weeding done out of mom's flowerbeds. This is the same flowerbed from last year but it wasn't nearly as bad as that time around! It only took about and hour to do that one and then the small one in the backyard. I got a text from Chris saying he was on the way home, so I decided to head home too so I can shower and we can knock out our errands. After the shower and lunch, Chris and I both fell asleep on the couch. That NEVER happens. I guess being in the hot sun for a little more than an hour really took a lot out of me.
After our accidental nap, it was like 3:00 and neither one of us really felt like going to the grocery store, so we decided to go look at some new shoes for me and then just drive around and see where we ended up (this is where things start going downhill..)
The shoes! OMG I am in love! We went to Varsity Sports here in Baton Rouge and went right into explaining all my P.F. issues. The salesman watched me walk a good bit and came up with a few recommendations. Now I'm normally an Ascics girl through and through but I was having the hardest time deciding between the Brooks Adrenaline and the Saucony Hurricane but ultimately ended up getting the latter. I went for a 20 minute run this morning to check them out and they did great! I didn't put my insoles in either, and so far so good, *knock on wood*!
After stopping at Varsity, Chris mentioned that he has never been to Trader Joe's, so we went there to look around. The first time I went during the opening weekend and it was a mad house and I never got anything. This time around, however, I found the Holy Grail, Cookie Butter. Everyone and their mama talks about how awesome that stuff is so I just had a to try it out. I also picked up a bag of Whole Wheat pretzel sticks and Chris got some Roasted Almonds. Yea, what everyone says is the truth. That stuff is like crack. So So So good!
After Trader Joe's, we walked out into a monsoon. We were stuck there for about 30 minutes! It was crazy! Rain wasn't even predicted!
After we managed to swim to our car, Chris "noticed" that we were very close to Burgersmith and suggested we go there for dinner. Now, I *could* have eaten a bit better here, but geez, this thing was amazing. Chris was very happy with his full belly.

Sunday I woke up way too early to get a head start on mom and dad's yard. It took the better part of about 4 hours but we finally finished. After that, Chris and my Aunt came out and met us there while Dad grilled us some steaks. All in all we had a wonderful day, despite the heat and the massive yard that they have (1 acre). It was a wonderful day and I got to spend the majority of it with my Dad. Couldn't ask for a better Father's Day!
All in all, it turned out to be a pretty awesome weekend. Back to the grind today though and on with the better choices!
Did you guys have a good Father's Day weekend? Did you do anything special with your dad/step-dad/grandpa/uncle/father figure?
