So how did things go on the health & fitness front? Just...okay. I wish I'd gotten more running and strength training in there - I feel like I'm hanging on by my fingertips, and given that I can't even do one pull-up, that's kind of a scary thing. As you can see, actuals are not exactly what I had on my main plan, but at least I did stuff.
The plus side of the current swirl is that it was kind of nice to not be obsessed with food for a change. This is where I'd boast about Mr. Handsome-and-Handy and his mad chef skills, but I don't want anyone to hurl while reading this. Being able to go on healthy eating auto-pilot is helping my blood glucose levels to do well.
So it was nice to finally reach the weekend. Thing 2 and I got to delight her little shop-a-holic heart and go shopping. (Mostly errand shopping, but she needed shoes...and what's not to love about getting new shoes?) The boys got to go to baseball practice - Mr. H&H got to help with practice, and Thing 1 and he got a good workout! I wish I were more skilled at baseball, but even so, I'd really like to help with one of the practices one of these weekends - not many of the moms help out with the practices, but I think it would be a good thing.
Sunday was drizzly, so it was a flop-at-home day. We read books and baked cookies (Trader Joe's mix of sugar cookies - not overly tempting, yet satisfied our urge to bake something). Kind of nice to kick back a little, because with the Little League season starting next weekend, our weekends are going to be off-the-hook crazy until mid-June.
I think I'll close by sharing some photos from our garden. February was so strange - heat wave followed by cold wave - but no snow at sea-level. Southern California got our snow, sad to say. But our plants are doing nicely. Our camellia bushes usually flower in January, so they were a little late, but we have one that gets light pink and dark pink blossoms - isn't that weird? My bulbs came up, which was a relief. I thought the gophers had eaten them all. We have the ideal climate for calla lilies, and they can get pretty invasive here if you're not careful.

Isn't this a pretty one?
How could a lovely plant like this be plotting world domination?
Can't wait to see how this one blooms!
