The countdown is on.....only three days until our mini vacation to The Cities. I am so excited and concerned.....I am also part of a singing group that is doing a benefit concert on Sunday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. I convinced my Hubby that we could/should get back in time for me to be part of the concert....now I find out that we are supposed to be practicing on Thursday after we leave for The Cities, rather than on Wednesday when I thought we were practicing. We also practice on Tuesday, our regular time, but I did not know I was a traveling tech on Tuesday, and I may be late to practice......I am going to be in so much trouble when I get there tomorrow.....I promised on Sunday when we sang in church that I would not be late.
I am going to try to leave work early so I an get there, but I don't know if I will be able to. Did I mention that our director likes everyone to do at least one solo, so I have two solo parts that I have to practice more on as well.
So for the excited part.....DD and I get to go shopping all day Saturday while Hubby has his mission training. I am very excited to try on clothes, as I have not really been shopping lately, and I want to see what sizes I now fit into. I have lost 37 pounds with SparkPeople, but I have actually lost 50 pounds since January 2012, so a lot of my pants are quite loose on me, while some of my old ones now fit quite nicely. I would like to replace a few of them, if I can. I just hope I don't get carried away and buy items I really don't need, just because I like them and they fit.
DD and I love to shop at second hand stores, that have good quality clothes. One of our favorite places is called Savers and there are many in the Twin Cities area where we are going to be staying. I must look up their locations before we leave on Thursday.
I did really good on calories and sodium today.....yes you read that correctly....I did good with sodium. I must keep up this for the rest of the week, as I am pretty sure I will not do great this weekend, unfortunately. We may go to a play and out to eat with some friends that we have not seen for a long time. Well, I have not seen them....Hubby and DD were down this Fall to their daughter's funeral...a very sad cancer story.
I could not get away from work on such short notice, so I sent them by themselves.
I will add one comment about the weather.....it had better be good while we are in The Cities and traveling in general and........it was almost Spring-like outside today....keep up the good work!
Guess that is about all I know for now, so Good Night. Lynel
