My first plan was to be taken through a propeller plan factory which I forgot about. Having forgotten, I decided to stay home and have a quiet day while catching up on some sewing projects. Then this morning, I received a plaintiff call from my sons girlfriend to say that her car would not start. The galvanized me into action....jump up, dress, brush teeth, grab my shake and rush out the door to take the poor little thing to work.
Fortunately my son is off the rig today so he will fix whatever it is she has done to flatten the battery. On rout, she reminds me of the tour, except that once at work, all hell broke loose and the tour has been postponed.
While returning to my home, I received a phone call to say that a friend of mine is sitting at Beyond Flavor and having a black out attack (long story) and my name starting with C...is the first name in her cell so they called me. Well, I have been around her with these black outs. Strange as it may seem, they are not dangerous to her, just frightening to bystanders.
That led me detouring to sit with my friend and help her through the "coming back from the black out" stuff. This takes a while...today it was 2 hrs. When she came too, we ordered coffee and she insisted on cake with it. She chose a marble cheese cake which looked ABSOLUTELY amazing. I had a teaspoonful and it WAS amazing.
I chose a slice of red velvet cake also to die for.
But I'm proud to say that I only ate the very tip and had the rest put in a take away box IMMEDIATELY. On top of that, the complimentary biscuits that came with our coffee joined them and hubby can indulge later when he comes home.
Sitting there chatting, I learned so much more about her than I ever knew. It was 2 hrs well spent. She heard all about my weight loss journey and shared hers. I never even knew she was ever overweight. In the 1.5yrs I have known her, she has always had a fabulous little figure. She still has her books from the "diet" she followed and is going to loan them to me for reading and gleaning purposes AND has invited me to come any day of the week and hop on her...no idea what you call it....machine you stand on and it vibrates and shakes the fat??
She says its fabulous, she has a very expensive one, not the cheap one. She also says its so good for stress. Seems it just shakes you to a start of relaxation. Well, I will know soon. I may go up tomorrow morning if I get the chance.
What a bonus. Maybe I can "shake" some extra kilograms.
Another great find for me, is a stability ball. My sons girl friend, toned up SO MUCH from sitting on a stability ball at work in front of the computer, instead of a chair. Each movement to type, answer the phone, twist to take something out the printer etc created core strength exercises. I now have a stability ball on loan.....so guess what Im sitting on as I type.
Another ..... lets see how that works out for me.
Im on a SERIOUS MISSION to get shot of the gut. This tubby midriff MUST GO.
Today feels like a Friday to me, but its only Thursday??
Tomorrow its back to boot camp and maybe some of Elvis's......
"I'm All Shook Up. Uh uh huh. Mmm Yeah, Yeah."
