I slept fairly well last night but at about 2a.m. I woke up with a headache. Bummer! The good news is that I got up, walked around,went back to bed, turned over to the other side and went back to sleep. I awoke again at about 4a.m. because my left thigh was throbbing. I don't know why either. I just turned over put a pillow between my knees and went back to sleep. That time, I didn't wake up until 7a.m. When I woke up I felt very stiff. This was most likely due to the fact that I increased the intensity and decreased the length of my workout yesterday. I also had some dry patches on my skin this morning so I decided to skip the water workouts until next week. Instead, today was a walking day.
So, what could I do for the day today? Wow! My schedule has been so tight for the last few weeks that having free time was a big treat! I decided to catch up on some things that I've been wanting to do all week. First, I went to my WW weigh in and I lost one pound. Insert a happy dance here!
Next, I went to the Hallmark store in the mall and used $10 worth of coupons and got some freebies and bargains. I'm making progress on my Christmas shopping! Insert another happy dance here!
After that I got gas at the gas station and only paid $3.29/gallon. Let's have another happy dance!
Next I took a pre Thanksgiving trip to Walmart for groceries and Christmas gifts. Yes you heard me correctly, I am already doing my shopping for Christmas while also doing shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Man was it crowded!!! I believe the snowbirds have landed in Florida for the winter! At Wally's World, as I like to call it, I was able to purchase all of the groceries on my list, 3 Christmas gifts, a great big turkey breast for $12 and I used around $12 worth of coupons. As an added plus, many of the things on my list were on sale because of Thanksgiving! I did a happy dance all the way out to my car!
After loading my treasures into the back of my car, I started the drive home. I was afraid that because of the time, I would get caught in school traffic. Not so! I travelled the whole 15 miles without any problems and never got snagged in traffic. God was smiling on me as I put a smile on my face
and a song in my heart
Finally, I stopped at CVS to pick up a prescription. I had a very short wait and, drum roll please...... my prescription was ready as promised! Happy dance here
As luck would have it, hubby was home to unload my car for me, so I could quickly whisk away the Christmas gifts I had purchased and hide them, since all 3 were for him. While I was putting the gifts away, hubby unloaded the car. He also had a great day and was in a good mood which made me even happier. Together, we put the groceries away in record time! It was a happy dance day!
