So I've been anxiously awaiting the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special today. Unfortunately I had to work today so I could not see it live or in 3D at a theatre. But I set my dvr and tried to avoid any spoilers. And my kids also patiently waited for me to get home so we could watch the episode together. It was sooooo awesome. Definately worth the wait.
Before work, I decided to check out the new gym that opened up a couple blocks from my work. So the first thing that I notice even before I walk up the steps to the gym is how incredibly LOUD the music was. It felt like I was in a dance club where you have to yell to be heard by the person next to you. Also they did not seem to have any classes geared towards beginners. I don't think that this gym would be a good fit for me. I'm not the 20-something year old that seems to be their target. So I guess for the meantime I will stick to walking and exercise dvd's and free weights and home. It's worked for me so far.
Food was not a problem today. I snacked on healthy snacks. Fresh veggies and ranch, with a little bit of cheese and raisins with sunflower seeds later in the day. Much better than the chips, soda and cookies that I used to reach for. I just need to remember to drink more water. Why is that so hard for me? And I did not eat out. I cooked a nice dinner for the kids and I when I got home.
I didn't do a whole lot of exercise today but I did walk to the bank rather than drive the two blocks. So I guess that counts for something. Thanks to Doctor Who I watched way more tv than my usual allotment. But hey, it was the 50th anniversary !!!!
