The advantages of snow

Thursday, February 15, 2007

I'm enjoying another paid day off from school, and will use it to fine-tune my packing...Yesterday it gave me some extra cardio. Last week I was terribly behind - this week I may actuall manage to exceed, as I'll probably have to shovel again before going to work tonight. I'll need to fill my goal for cardio in these next 2 days, becuase the flight will have me kinda stationary! However, since we arrive in the morning, and I'm sure I'll go to the interent, I'll get some walking in once we've arrived and are settled. I am SO looking forward to being with my loved ones in Peru again! SO looking forward to introducing them to Al.

  


"At this time next week..."

Monday, February 12, 2007

I am so excited about the trip, I have to pray, "Lord, keep me in the present" - don't want to get ahead of Him. BUT, I don't think it hurts to imagine what I'll be doing a week from now...let's see, we may be en route to Santa Teresa near Machu Picchu, by train. I THINK we're staying the night there prior to going on a daytrip to MP the following day. Not clear on details.
Wonder if I can see the painting of the Last Supper in Cuzco which features Cuy (guinea pig) as part of the meal.

  


Amazing!

Despite not doing my strength and not getting in all my cardio, I managed to get back down to 195 by the end of the week! Maybe the cold has me burning more calories to maintain body heat, I dunno...and it helped that for a few days I was fairly in range on the intake. Okay, so, I probably won't be at 190 when I leave for Peru next Friday. Maybe tromping around Cuzco and Machu Picchu will help. I'm sure I won't have the easy access to food like there is on the homefront. Certainly not the chocolate! (You can GET it, but it just isn't as good as it is here! Same with the cheese) Anyway, at least they'll see me at 30 pounds less than when I was last with them.
I find myself thinking "Next week at this time I'll be doing thus-n-such". Let's see, it's about 9 pm, now - we'll be at the reception service at Voz de la Transformacion. Wonder who all will be there from other churches? Of course, there are some who have gone ahead to Cuzco who won't be there that night - we'll see them Sunday afternoon. Ooooo, I'm giddy with excitement. This is one time I'm so glad to be me!

  


One of THOSE days

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

This morning I just couldn't get my engine started. My body, not the car! So I didn't work out. I'm still getting used to change in work schedule - had to take on some more hours at the evening job in order to make 20 hour minimum (to get paid time off) Of course I still had to walk to school, so that's SOMETHING. If I skip my nap, I can do the workout when I get home, but I have to work till eleven tonight, and I don't think I'd be able to skip the nap! I'll see how I feel when I get home, I guess. I'll be glad when the ears clear up.

    Is your engine running better today?

Thx for the note on my page. I do agree that all we have is a blessing from above. This is my 1st time to your page and I enjoyed all the photos. Will you be able to check in with us while you are traveling? If not, know that you will be missed! Looking forward to hearing all about your visit in Peru!

Well, if at first you don't succeed...

Sunday, February 04, 2007

One of the problems of weekends...starting Friday, when my DH wanted to go for a fish fry...then Saturday I didn't do any of my workout (cardio was limited to walking around done for grocery shopping)..and today, Superbowl Sunday, TOTALLY off kilter. But tomorrow is another day. I'm hoping school will be closed (extreme cold) so I can relax but also do my workout.
I don't plan to go back to my old ways. This is only a temporary setback. I aim to stay in ONEderland. My arrival at goal may be delayed, but it is not unattainable.
