Chico Bound!

Friday, March 07, 2014

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!

    Have a great trip. Traffic will be whatever it will be so look at the scenery instead of the bumpers!

    emoticon on the parking space and your workout!!! You did some MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE FAT, with that burn!!!

    I've never been in the bay area, and the way you're talking about the traffic and trying to beat it, my first reaction was, "Girl, it's Friday and everybody's getting off early, with intentions of going somewhere!" I pray for your sake that doesn't happen.

    That's so sweet to visit your god mom and take her something for her birthday. That's just who you are, thinking of others first! Have a FANTASTIC TIME!!

    Be blessed,
