We're off to the mountains to ski. I tried on my DH's ski boots and skis and tried to get up from a sitting position (as if I'd fallen) and set off really bad back spasms so I'm not going to try to ski. That's ok! I will enjoy it vicariously thru the girls! Life is still good!
Went to the gym with 13yo DGD and we spent 30 min on the track. She is a runner so I walked and ran off and on with her. I ended up doing an 18 min mile which is a PR for me!
Then we worked on the machines with each other. It was great! A healthy lifestyle thru the generations! (except it went up from her and her Mom to me!)
All 4 of us went with DH to his first Occupational Therapy appointment and the 13 year old who is interested in Health Sciences was fascinated!
After lunch "the 3 girls" went to Flatirons Mall in Boulder and had lots of fun buying perfume, lotion, lip gloss, shirts and running shorts...not to mention Haagen Daz! (Lemon Sorbet for 110 calories for me!)
After dinner of crockpot beef stew (which the 11 year old made with grampa while we were at the gym)
we made lunches and packed our ski clothes for ski school tomorrow.
It's a quiet Sunday morning after a hectic Saturday trip to Southern Colorado to pick up DGDs. We had a happy uneventful trip and DH was cleared for driving so I didn't have to drive the 4 hour trip! The girls are happy and excited. We took a 2 mile walk when we got home to "exercise our tushes". We made dinner together and then sat down and worked out a schedule for the week...running time, gym time, shopping, ice skating, skiing x 2, swimming, and biking. I can't wait. The girls are active and athletic like their Mom so I will be kept moving the whole week! As I said "I can't wait".
I've been at the same weight for a week now. I had wanted to lose 10 pounds by my Birthday on May 10th and thought "no problem". I probably shouldn't set arbitrary goals like that. I should just keep on eating healthfully and keeping active because as soon as I set that goal, I stopped losing. At first I was a little discouraged. But now I am more accepting. I have noticed that sometimes when I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or look at a recent picture I think "Wow! You look great!" Other times, I think "Oh my, you have so far to go!". I just don't have a realistic picture of my physical self. I think this plateau is giving me a chance to become comfortable with the evolving me!
