Valentine's Surprise & More Spin

Spin Day
Today was a super dreary, rainy day. Made it really difficult to peel myself out of bed. Somehow Jason did better than me and got up in time for his 5:30 swim class. I will say that I am at least glad it's not really cold out though. No snow, sleet, or ice to contend with. Just wet.

I ended up hitting spin again today. I had sort of thought about weights. But honestly, I really didn't feel up for weights or even looking at the elliptical for a warm up much less a cardio session. Definitely thankful I had spin as an option at least.

I definitely worked my booty off and got out some frustration during the workout. I was one hot mess after.

Valentine's Surprise & More Housework 
Remember when I said we didn't do anything for Valentine's Day? My gift was Jason going to spin class? Well, he totally surprised me with a gift certificate for a spa session with facial. I am not a big massage fan, but I adore a facial. I never splurge on that. I barely pay for a much-needed sports massage. But, he said he knew that I'd been a little stressed and deserved it. :-) Really, he is the best!

That was about the extent of celebrating though. Of course I felt bad that I hadn't gotten him anything and wasn't even making a nice dinner. All I did was to reheat some homemade veggie burgers that I keep in the freezer along with sweet potato fries. We watched an episode of Mike and Molly, then he went to Home Depot to pick up more texture spray for the ceiling and paint. Guess what we're doing tonight!

I do have physical therapy after work and some errands to run. Jason will probably get started priming the walls of the gym room. The plan is that I start Chipotle Tempeh Chili then help him finish any priming while the chili is simmering.

We'll definitely be eating dinner a lot later than normal. But, we have to get the walls primed today so I can start painting after work tomorrow. Anyone want to come help out???
