Yesterday went so well at the airports. I easily found healthy choice at DFW in terminal C. I had brought carrots and jerky just in case. I met another Sparker at Starbucks there. I got to my parent's house last night. My Mom picked me up. She noticed immediately. She has seen me at all kinds of weights over the years. My dad is having some serious health issues though. We are going walking this afternoon. I already did my FF&FU for today. I am gonna get off here and help get some stuff ready for the Father's Day BBQ tomorrow. It will be good for the whole crew to get together.
Wow. I got up at 4:30 so I could get my workout in before dressing and packing for my trip then going to work. The work out went fine. After that everything took forever. I was dropping thing and loosing things right and left. Instead of getting here at 7-7:15 I made it at my usual 7:50. It is a good thing I got up early or I would have been late to work. I have to leave for the airport at 1:00. I have healthy snacks in case I am rushed or can't find appropriate food at the airports I will be in. Should be a good trip and my toe feels good with out the boot thing on so I am good to go.
Actually somehow I got one purchased that will be delivered to my house but I also have one on hold at the ABQ Apple Store. I don't know how the reservation happened. I never was able to get it to make one. I must have had success on one of the multiple trys. It only took 15 hours to get it done. I guess I am stubborn. My husband says I am anyway. At some point it became a matter of principle. OR I am just stubborn as a mule and made up my mind that I was going to get it reserved. It is that stubbornness that I will need to tap to stay at my goal weight when I get there. If I can get that going I will stay a healthy weight for years! My husband and I went for a 30 minute walk before the basketball game started last night. I was cleared to start walking again by my doctor yesterday when he told me I could quit wearing the lovely boot. It was a little sore last night but feels good this morning. I made a list of things I need to get done before I leave for the airport tomorrow afternoon. I should have started last week. My husband will help me since I am going to be busy at work getting everything ready to be off a day and a half. We are having a cookout at my parents house on Saturday for Father's day. The will be easy breezy as far as healthy goes. Well I had best get crackin'. Times a wasting as they say!!
Your request couldn't be processed. Couldn't create your reservation. Due to extremely high call volume we cannot accept your call. These are the phrases I have been reading, hearing and finally been told in person about reserving my new iPhone. I have tried AT&T and Apple multiple time since 4:45 this morning. It isn't like they didn't know they were going to be available for reservation today. I am getting a lot done at work since the web sites take forever to tell you they can't handle your request right now. It is taking about 15-20 minutes each time. The people at the Apple Store here in ABQ told me they have not been able to reserve any phone either so there is no point in going over there at lunch. The servers are completely overwhelmed. Enough bitching about that. I will get one. I was just hoping it would go smoothly. Not much chance of that. I had my foot e-rayed this morning and I don't have to were the boot anymore. Woo Hoo!!!! I have to continue to be careful but I should be good to go from here. Pretty much if it hurts don't do it. No problem. I don't like things to hurt anyway. He said I could start walking again so that is good. I will go to see my Mom and Dad in TN in cute comfy shoes instead of the ugly boot and one cute shoe. Well lunch is over too soon. Back to work we go. I think I will get a pedicure tonight.....
Another week back at work...I had such a good weekend. I am leaving for my parent's house in TN on Thursday afternoon. I am coming back on Sunday so it is just a quick trip to see them. I have a bunch to do this week to get ready for my trip. I am going to get some new blue jeans like the black ones I got from Coldwater Creek. The 8s fit better than any other jeans I have tried. I am going to pre-order my new iPhone tomorrow so it will be waiting for me on the 24th. I have to stay caught up at work or pay the price later. I go tomorrow morning to get my toe x-rayed and hopefully get out of this boot thing. It is ugly and hot. I would rather do airports in my comfy, cute shoes! My temporary crown came off during the night last night somewhere, somehow. They are calling me back at 11A to let me know if the real one will be in soon enough or if I will need another temp. I need to go by Sephora to pick up a couple things for the trip. I will get my husband to run to the grocery to get a couple things to take with so I will not have an excuse to be bad while I am running around the airports on Thursday and Sunday. It is pretty easy to stay on track at my parent's house since my Dad is diabetic. They pretty much do healthy to help him keep his blood sugar under control. I will have to switch and do walking instead of my bike since they don't have one. That will work fine though. I will take my FF&FP dvd with me to do the workouts there. Friday's routine is the Strengthen and Lengthen which doesn't require weights. Saturday will be Lower Body Blast and it requires a chair (easy)and weights which I will substitute something from my Mom and Dad's house. I don't really want to add weights to my suitcase or computer bag. They weight enough on their own! Wow...looks like I will be a busy little camper between now and getting on the plane Thursday afternoon. Should bee able to burn some extra calories with all that going on!!
