A Night out & A Walk on the Freeway

The plans for Friday night went back and forth from Thursday right up until late Friday afternoon.  Original plan was karaoke, then it was watching movies at someone’s house, then karaoke was back on, then it was going out but no karaoke, then it was back to watching movies, then karaoke again….finally it was settled.  No karaoke, just bars then a movie, whew!

I was mostly just trying to figure out if I needed to dress up or if I could wear my sweats 🙂

We went to a couple different bars enjoying drinks and playing giant jenga.  Going out to the bars sometimes makes me feel old but we had fun and I used Uber for the first time (it’s amazing).  FullSizeRender (61).jpg

I definitely drank too much, which I hate but I did it to myself.  We had drinks after the bar and went to bed in the wee hours of the morning.  A late night meant a late start to the next day.  We were barely even alive before 10AM and our plans to go for a walk were definitely up in the air since both of us were suffering from major headaches.  We even made frozen pizza for breakfast because neither of us wanted to cook and we were hurting too bad to actually go out, lol.

Our walking plans were almost cancelled but finally in the afternoon we pulled ourselves together enough to get out of the house.  The plan was to walk part of the trail on I-90 so I could get a picture of Mt. Rainier, unfortunately it was too cloudy to see it.  I still enjoyed the walk and look forward to trying again on a less cloudy day.

We were definitely hurting but the fresh air was good and I felt a sense of accomplishment once were done.  It was much better than laying on the couch all day.  We walked through part of Mercer Island, admiring mansions along the way, then walked along the freeway.

Plus look at all those steps and active minutes!

I’m trying to up my weekly steps every week and the goal for next week is 60,000.  I’m in a workweek hustle competition (who can get the most steps in 5 days) so I think that will provide some motivation.

I don’t know how many steps I’ll get in today.  I’m sore from yesterday and still feeling tired from my night out, definitely how I know I’m getting old….it takes 2 days to recover from 1 night out, ha ha XD

I did go to the grocery store and cleaned my apartment early this morning so at least I can say I accomplished something today.  Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!
