I am so glad I went to the gym last night. I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Then I rode the bike for 6 minutes. My legs were so tired that I couldn't make it the full 10 minutes. Next time I will! I am very proud of myself for going to the gym twice in one week. That doesn't seem like much compared to what I did before having Kaleb. I have to start somewhere.
Friday, since there is no child care provided at the gym, Kaleb and I will be swimming after work. I know he will enjoy it so much. On Saturday morning, I am going to Zumba Water aerobics again. That class was really fun!
As for tonight, no gym, going to James' house and we are decorating the Christmas Tree . He had a blessing yesterday. He went to his Grandmother's house and she told him he can have any decorations that are up in the attic. He found a ton of hidden treasures for the tree. Plus, she had two trees up there. He has himself a tree to decorate. I cannot wait to see what memories he has had with the ornaments .
For dinner, he decided to appease me and order a veggie pizza and salad. I am glad he is trying to offer veggies for the family with every meal. One baby step to a healthier lifestyle! I am very happy to have the opportunity to show him that the little things do help!!!
Tonight will be the second night this week I am going to the gym. I haven't exercised at the gym in a little while. Even through last week I walked once it felt so good after I was done. Last night, I walked the same about of time but at a higher speed. Tonight, I am planning on walking and trying out the bike for 10 minutes.
Tomorrow, I going to James' house to decorate his tree with the kids. I am very excited to be able to spend time with him. This relationship feels so different from every other relationship I have had. I just hope its stays as wonderful it feels.
I went on a date with James last night. We went to Mexican food. I wasn't prepare to go to that kind of food. It was really grease. It was actually too greasy. I got sick as a dog. I don't eat that food that much anymore.
Here is my ah ha moment! My body is so use to eating healthy that when my body gets the grease, full fat foods my body rejects it. So even through it was disgusting I proud of myself for taking a wonderful job of feeding my body right!
When I got home from my date, Kaleb had colored me his first picture. He didn't even need help holding the paper. It was beautiful! I received his evaluation from one of his speech therapist. It is all GREAT! She was impressed at all the words he has been picking up! I am a very proud mommy!
My plan tonight: Going to the gym. I am going to kick the stress!
I visited my Grandmother yesterday. She had at least two strokes over the weekend. My family decided to take to transfer her to a hospice house. It was very difficult to watch her like that. My sister, Tammy, didn't come up and see her yet. Honestly, I don't know if she will because she is already emotional being pregnant and all.
Today is the one year anniversary of the death of my love, Roger. I was with him for almost 10 years. He was my everything. He was very sick. At the end his life he would not let me be near him. He made me leave. I miss him terribly.
I am so happy that James wanted to see me tonight. We are going for a drive and to a bar which includes shooting pool. That will be a nice distraction from my life. He knows about Roger because I have spoke of him. I just wandering if I should mention what today means to me?
On a happier note: I did get to talk to my best friend today. We talked for about 30 minutes. Even through it wasn't long enough for me I really enjoyed hearing her voice. I am counting down to the time I get to see her. I am so happy she and her family will be moving down here. 1 month 1 week and 4 days...I cannot wait!
I made 25 Christmas Cards over the weekend . I have another 15 to make and send out. I am almost done with my list! I am finishing up my Christmas shopping these weekend. I am super excited to have that out of the way as well. Last night while attending to my Christmas Cards , I watched Miracle on 34th Street. I cannot believe that movie has been around for 65 years.
I got a freezer last night. It is sooo pretty! What a bargain! I got a 4 foot tall freezer for $100!!! I am so excited. I am getting things ready for my best friend and her family to move in.
Next on the list is two futons.
This weekend's "to do" list; since my boyfriend has the flu; is cleaning out the other two bedrooms. I have one month, one week, two days before I head to New York to help them move. I want to be as prepare as possible.
I wish she was here now. I miss her. She always makes me feel like everything is going to be ok. She knows how to calm my mother down too. I cannot wait to see her.
