Enjoyed my all too brief stay at Mom's. Seemed like I just got there and had to go home!! Would you believe, not ONE coyote traced a path across the back yard while I was there. meanwhile Mom was seeing the whole (two adults, one young one) family several times a day :P.
Last night watched a really good movie called Fierce People (2005). The young 15 year old actress was none other than Kristian Stewart (If I hadn't had just seen Twilight Breaking Dawn, I might not have twigged onto who she was)! But she wasn't the star, the young boy was. I stayed up late to watch it. Also watched Troy again. Love those sweeping epics.
So a really slothful weekend except for the Saturday morning 60 min elliptical and 80 min kickboxing DVD's, I got no exercise other than walking in the frigid temperatures of -4 F (-20C) I was not dressed warmly enough for a long trail hike, got to get some of those lined pants :P. We walked to a store and then to a mall today for some shopping and looking around. Then a quick Costco trip where I stocked up on my favorites, Greek Yogurt Liberte and grapefruit segments by Kirkland. Was thinking about getting big brother the James Bond Blue ray DVD set (all 22 movies), but at $169, didn't think I had enough cash on me for it, but by the time I came back around, the only two sets they had were gone. He also likes 24 and they had the complete set of seasons of that show there too.
Sleep still eludes me, woke up in pain as usual even on Mom's comfy couch, but I do think I might have managed three hours straight sleep before waking up. The tummy woes continue though. I planned for a higher carb, less fiber weekend and it did work out that I finally met the fiber range rather then going way over it :P. I had some of Mom's pasta and veggie crammed home made soup, oh so good -and she made her own broth base so was not salt laden. Her date muffins to die for and multigrain buns. Way more grains then I am used to. Way less fruits and veggies then I am used to, only had five servings today, very low for me!
I am off into the deep freeze to the club on my scooter (hope the battery holds up for that five blocks) -but I have to take the last 30 lb box of playing cards that I had ordered for the club to it. Only four boxes had come in when I asked someone to pick them up. This one was late.
Not looking forward to getting up early tomorrow, exercising, showering and then getting back out in that cold to work the game. But we must do what we must. Right now the only time I feel good is when I am moving.
Have a Marvelous Monday all!
