No Swimming today but.....
Saturday, January 08, 2011
I did get my new swimsuit. I can't wait to use it at the pool. My old suit is/was very stretched out. So everytime I stepped out of the pool, I had a huge butt because of extra air. Not a pretty sight. When I tried on suits at the end of summer at Sports Chalet, nothing fit. I was very depressed. At that point, I had lost 20 pounds and still was too fat to fit in a lapswim suit. The other day, I somehow stumbled across on online swim outlet. I did a live chat with them and told them my measurements. They told me what size suit to order. How depressing, I am a size 42. They had a very cute suit but only to size 40. The live chat said it would be too snug and it wouldn't fit. Dang.
But in the end I found a cute suit that I hoped would be somewhat flattering. I also looked for a waterproof MP3 player. I found one. So dh went to pay. But felt we really couldn't afford the MP3 player. But if I swam more regularly, we would get it later. Oh, well. Well, the order arrived today. The suit looked way too long. I am very, VERY short waisted. But when I tried it on, IT FIT!
And in the box, there was my MP3 player. Dh got it for me after all. I am using my Sparkpoints as a reward system and so I figure my new suit and MP3 player mostly wipes out all my points, if I give myself a penny a point.
As for today, I am very low in calories today. I woke up late and only ate an apple for breakfast. But so far, I have only had 671 calories for the day. I will have ice cream but that will only add 120 calories. I will work better tomorrow to get more calories in.
I didn't want to exercise today either. But I did it. I didn't want to let any of my various teams down. So as much as I didn't want to do it and almost talked myself out of it, I went downstairs and did 45 minutes on Wii Walk It Out.
I did work on the assignment. I didn't do a lot but I figured if I do 2 answers a day, I will get the assignment done by the end of the month. Today, I think I did 3 and will try to get one more done tonight. Good night all.
