i am so excited that we are heading to cuba in one month. especially on this cool drizzly day. today is thanksgiving in canada so we are going to watch movies, go skating for fun (not hockey) and that is about it.
the only thing that worries me about cuba in a month is my giggly belly. oh my. after 2 nights of thanksgiving dinner i am looking about 4 months pregnant. i am not planning on trying to lose weight. just cleaning up my diet (again) and tightening up the mid section. this is mostly diet for me. watch the sodium, drink my water and eat good foods and i should lose the bloat.
had a pretty good workout week.
4 runs for 16 miles (highest weekly mileage in a while)
2 full body strength workouts
1 spin class
on wednesday i had to take the new car into the dealer so they could finish up a few things. when i booked the appointment they told me it would take 5 hours. when i got there due to the rain they said it would take 8 hours. i had no car, too far to get home so i had 8 hours to kill. so i walked to the gym. this gym is not the one i normally go to but is part of the chain i go to. well there is 2 of them. is that a chain? first time there. it is older but way bigger. however this was in front of the treadmills.
seriously? a vending machine full of chocolate bars and chips. how dumb is that??? this is pretty much next to the health food/supplement/cafe thing. idiots.
after working out for a couple of hours leisurely i then headed to the mall. 5 hours in a mall can be dangerous! i got new runners which i needed (back to brooks again), got a manicure (which i regret because i hate the colour and think she did a pretty crappy job) and bought a book and started to read it. i also spent some time in toys r us browsing for gift ideas for christmas. by doing all that i successfully killed 8 hours. phew!
we had 2 thanksgiving dinners this weekend. one at simon's uncles and one at my sisters. both were fun. nothing exciting to report happening at either.
our savings are dwindling so i have to start picking up more shifts at work. i have only been working 3 days a week lately and i need to work 4 at least every other week. so i will be picking up shifts. unless i win the lotto this week???
