May is shaping up well. I've been sticking to my calorie range, which always feels great. I've started out a tad slow with fit mins, but not too bad. I should have 250 in a day or so, so that is better than nothing! Really gonna have to work it to get my 1,000 in again this month, but nothing is stopping me, so I'm going to have to make it happen.
This was another great weekend. My babe was home, we were a bit lazy, which was actually really nice because I'd been having a pretty bad sleep week, so I caught up on those lost sleep hours this weekend. On cinco de Mayo me and four of my neighbor girls and one of the girl's friends hung out all afternoon, sipping wine, playing game, shooting the breeze and having a royally good time. It was nice and all I had to do was walk downstairs and right into the door across the walkway! Pretty fun! ( All this local socializing is still so new to me I am just soaking it up every chance I get.)
I drove to Medford Oregon and back yesterday!!! WHEW, that was a marathon of a day, pretty crazy, not fun, but it had to be done. I didn't get to check out the town as much as I hoped I would. But we did drive around a bit, and I got a pretty decent vibe from the place. I do like it there, from what I see, and if we do move there, I think I could make it work just fine. It is almost exactly a four hour drive from here, with no stopping, which is really not bad at all. I will be able to come down anytime I want, and that makes me feel really comfortable about the move.............if/when it happens. I found a couple of places for rent there for $400.00/month (!!!!!!) I can't believe that! We pay $755.00 for a one bedroom apartment and that is the cheapest in town! There are lot's of affordable houses, duplexes, condos and such there. It is kind of overwhelming to think that we could actually afford to rent a house there...........most of the houses here go for around $1,400/month.........which is way out of our price range. But for around $600/month you can find lot's of houses to rent there. It's a totally different ballgame there, rent wise, and that is very encouraging.
Well, I'm cooking for one of my neighbors tonight. It's her birthday, and I'm going to BBQ some steak and chicken and make a nice salad to go with it. She said she was going to be home alone today, and I just can't have someone alone their birthday! So we're going to have a nice meal and just chill out, maybe watch "Thor"............that's bound to make any girl feel better! (So bad...........so good!)
Looking forward to water aerobics tomorrow. Didn't go Monday because I was on the road, and am not going tonight because of the birthday bash, so I'll be good and ready by tomorrow. I really miss it, I would do it 7 days a week if I could, feels so great.
Have a great week, and a Happy Mother's Day weekend to all of you wonderful Mother's out there.
