Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
Yesterday was one of the best day's I've had in a long time.. the machines were good to me, I got my steps in, an heck .. we didn't get home until 10ish last night .. (ergo the delay in my blog being done .. lol) It was such a wonderful time ..
I was concerned because I had a bubble that just didn't want to dissipate yesterday .. and I was uncomfortable .. but once I got rid of that .. I had the best of days .. The sun was out bright and shiney, and the temperature was beautiful with just a fleece sweater .. and I ended my day with 9600 steps .. :)
We stopped at our normal gas station, and got our soda's for the ride .. after leaving about 8:30ish .. and we had plans for lunch at the pizza parlor up there .. hubby had a coupon for buy a large pizza for the price of a medium .. I told him right away .. "Pizza travels ... we don't have to eat it all there .. " ..Well .. the coupon is good until the end of June .. and we didn't have pizza for lunch .. lol lol ... We got there, and played our free money; and he started talking about lunch .. Well -- I wasn't hungry, because of my belly fussing, and we had had little sausage sticks for our "baker tilly" treat .. (there's a Baker Tilly building that's about 1/2 way there... and that's where we break out the snacks .. it's tradition ) .. I told him I'm not ready for lunch yet .. so we decided to play for a bit .. and meet up .. but he surprised me .. he brought a coupon for the little restaurant upstairs that I enjoy so much ..
I had myself a grilled chicken sandwich that was tender enough to cut with a fork; and fries... OMG the fries .. there were tons of them .. I think they didn't want the meal to look sparse so every space that was uncovered on the plate had fries to fill them in .. lol lol
I still have a problem "leaving food" especially when I'm with hubby.. (okay -- it's a problem that I have to work my way through) .. but I was full from the sandwich and a few fries .. I literally took a handful of my fries, and put them on his plate .. I told him that if they stay on mine; I will continue to munch while we chatted .. but if they are on his, I'm less likely to reach over and take off of his plate .. lol lol ... So HE finished my fries for me .. :) lol lol lol ..and there were ALOT !!! lol .. I was proud of myself for that move !!! :)
The day was good to me ... the machines were good to me ... I still got my exercise in ... I had a wonderful day ... and I slept like the proverbial LOG last night .. EVERYTHING was aligned !!!! :)
This morning I'm starting to put a dent in my laundry .. Hubby tried to get me to go down to Potawatomi for lunch .. I told him, I'm really not that hungry and for me to just go to "use the coupon" would only defeat my purpose .. So he's going this morning, because he wants to get his "birthday gift" .. today is their birthday party for those that have birthdays in April ... and I had a wonderful day yesterday .. I told him I don't want to have a burst in my bubble today ..
So -- hubby's going on his own .. Plus it's not fun for me, because then I have to watch the clock, because I go by mom's on Sunday .. and I'd have to sit and watch the clock .. so nope .. I'm staying home, and hubby is going for his "birthday" celebration .. (and his name may not even be picked .. but it's what he enjoys .. so so be it :) ) and I'm doing laundry and just stuff I want to do around the house .. :)
This is a fun week I have to look forward to .. I already told hubby that I wouldn't be home on Tuesday night .. because of dinner with my friends .. :) I MAY NOT (they are talking hard raining) be home on Wednesday night because the dugout is started up again .. and I won't be home on Friday because I'm starting the day with my pampering, (pedi and nails), and then working my way to the stamp/scrapbooking show .. and my calligraphy class at night .. so it's going to be a long day, but I'm thinking it's a fun one .. and I'm looking sooo forward to it .. I want to stop and shop at a store for a nice pair of pants "THAT FIT" .. not too big, not too small .. but JUSSST RIGHT !!! So thinking a mall walk at the same time .. have an idea where I'm headed .. :) but I'm headed .. lol lol lol ..
As for my exercise week .. Ummm ??? not quite sure .. because the temperatures are supposed to be GREAT .. however, the rain is set to come in on Wednesday so I'm going to have think creatively ..
Monday will be no problem .. Sunshine, and warm temps .. (so far) ..
Tuesday .. may be a problem .. but thinking I'll take my "lunch" at 4 .. go to the mall down the block from where we're having dinner, do my 33 minutes there, and then go to dinner ..
Wednesday .. my original plan was to leave work early, and go to the park where the dugout is, and do my walk around the park .. (which is what I may do on the days that I work .. that will help my body not go into rigormortis standing in the dugout for a few hours ..
Thursday .. the rain is supposed to slow down, but not sure .. so may be a gym treadmill walk..
Friday ... I plan on getting my walk in at the mall .. :) while I'm shopping .. :) lol lol .
So that's my plan for the week .. the only day I have up in the air is Wednesday .. and if worse comes to worse .. I can peddle .. (emergency backup) .. :) but it WILL be done !!! :) its something FOR ME !!! :)
I honestly believe that they are back in full force .. :)
It's going to be a great Sunday .. going over to mom's this afternoon, and get my week started on a positive foot .. I've got my first load of laundry in the washer .. and thinking either bundling up and taking a walk (36 right now), or jumping on the bike .. I want to let Rupert out of his crate to run around this morning .. and just do a bunch of stuff that I haven't been able to do for the last few weeks .. (ohhh so can't wait until I have weekdays to help fill in these blanks.. lol)
Oh .. and just for the record .. haven't had my countdown lately .. :)
44 workdays until June 29 (last work day the 30th falls on a Saturday .. :) Planned THAT one good . lol )
61 day days until July 1 ... (official retirement day)
1478 hours until July 1 .. (may change by the time you read this .. lol)
88719 minutes until July 1 .. (may change by the time you read this .. lol .. but I'm not getting down to brass tacks here .. lol Nope .. not me .. lol)
