I have rollerblades.
My son said, 'What are you a throwback to the 80s?'
....and I said:
'Don't you remember when we used to go rollerskating? I LIKE rollerskating. I want to do it again.'
Now the truth is that the last time I went rollerskating I was 250 pounds. It was hard on my knees and I couldn't do it for long at all.
But....I didn't care how I looked then and I'm not going to worry about it now. I mean, I weigh less, it should be easier.
I am looking forward to going rollerskating. It is inexpensive to go at the roller rink and I really wouldn't do it anywhere else. I am weird. I think I want to go by myself. It seems like it might be very relaxing to go by myself and listen to the music, go around a few times, and people watch.
I have been doing pretty well. I haven't been doing great as far as exercise or eating right but I haven't been doing terribly either.
I haven't been PUSHING myself in terms of losing weight for a number of weeks now. I have things to work out and that is okay to me.
Every week my Dad asks me how much weight I've lost. I feel kind of bad when I have to tell him I haven't lost anything. But - pleasing my Father is a head trip I might consider skipping - or at least getting off at one of the first stops.
I'm going to enjoy my weekend, relax some, exercise some, and then go for the push so I can get my 100 lbs lost before the end of summer.
Tomorrow I have someone who is coming over to help me with a pattern so I can make my son a vest for a Steampunk costume. We are going to a convention. Then I have a friend coming over for our writing group.
I haven't done much website design. I really want to teach it to my son and I have found that it doesn't work unless we both have time off and we are both sitting right next to one another. So, that is slow going.
I have tonight off and all of tomorrow off. I'm really looking forward to it.
I hope everyone is having a great day!
