Wow! I’m starting off the day in a good weigh! ;-) Lost another pound this morning so I’m down to 188. Workin on that goal of 185 by May 15th.
Sistah Pam should have gotten out of the hospital yesterday evening. Saw her around 2:30 or so and she was hoping to get released by 5:30. We’re supposed to get together today and workout but I don’t think she’s going to be up to it.
Let’s take a look at the last two weeks…weight loss of 6 1/2 pounds. Two weeks ago, I would probably stay in the house all day (maybe not even take off my PJs). Since then, I’ve been out to eat 3 times, gone to the gym 3 times, and exercised almost everyday. Right now, I want to get my shower, get dressed and go shopping!
Still haven’t gone shopping. Cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the bathroom, talked to Mom on the phone, helped Donnie clean out two of the garden ponds (gross!) and separated water lilies.
Helped Donnie open the pool for the year…cleaned the kitchen again…cleaned the bathroom again…and finally managed to get away for a while to go shopping. Bought a new thing that’s supposed to rip the hair off my legs painlessly with a little buffing pad to remove dry skin. Got a new patio table but it didn’t fit in the trunk (surprise, surprise) so I had to call Darryl to come and pick it up. Spent the remainder of the afternoon standing in the checkout line at Walmart where I bought a new intertube for Andrew’s bike so he’ll stay off mine and a new chain for my bike because it broke when he was riding it yesterday evening. It’s a 21 speed bike and replacing the chain looks very complicated so I dumped it on Donnie. I bought some wonderful strawberries at Walmart for $1.50 a quart that are fantastically sweet. That made it worth standing in line (besides, I read the entire current copy of People Magazine while I waited and didn’t have to buy it.)
Just filled out my dinner menu. It always sounds so much better to say Pork Medallions with Fennel, steamed green beans with cranberries, and baked apples with Splenda and cinnamon than to say I had some pork, green beans, and baked apples.
Didn’t hear from Pam today and I didn’t get any exercise so I’m going to call her and then go out for a walk as soon as I clean the kitchen again.
Pam is much better but still not up to exercising. I walked on the treadmill 30 minutes with a steep incline setting. Not happy about only working 30 minutes but I did work up a good sweat.
