Just ate a bowl of cantaloupe and doing my Sparking for today. Afterwards I'm going for an hour long walk and jumping in the shower to start getting ready to leave for Chico. I have a few last minute items to get together but other than that we're all set and ready to go. We got gas last night after the gym and I have the toll bridge money in my purse so we can head out when my boyfriend gets off of work at 2:30 so we can try to beat 5pm Bay Area traffic. For those who know the area traffic is pretty much horrible 95% of the time but when 4-7pm roll around it becomes a dead stop. We are trying to avoid that but there are times where the traffic back up starts early.
Yesterday we lucked out and got a parking space at the gym! I did 10 minutes on the stationary bike and burned 80 calories, 15 minutes on the arc trainer and burned 220 calories, and I did 10 minutes on the elliptical (which I hate but no treadmills were available) and burned 110 calories. So overall yesterday I burned over 500 calories :) Yay!
We decided we are going to make a visit to my god parents who are in their 80's while we are in the Chico area. They live in a town called Red Bluff which is about a 40 minute drive. My god mother's birthday is coming up and I wanted to bring her some flowers, a card, and a small bottle of her favorite perfume. I'll call her first thing tomorrow morning to make sure she is going to be around. I can't wait to see them!
