Cal and I arrived in Oklahoma this evening, and we spent the evening with Dad. We had some drinks and watched the debate while I knitted a scarf and Dad and Cal had their own little intellectual and theological debate. Check out the scarf I made. 🙂
I have so much to say about my plan to lose more weight in the coming weeks. Cal’s mom, Patti, shared her philosophy on weight-loss, and I’ve decided that her plan will work for me too. We shopped yesterday from around 3pm until midnight. It seems I have finally met my match…ha 😉 Actually, she shopped much more than I did, but I had a great time with her…and I would guess that I burned quite a few calories walking because we literally didn’t sit until we hit Saks just before they closed. I picked up a couple of things, but I still have shopping to do!
I’ve also taken some time to workout at Anytime Fitness this week – totally confirming that I made the right decision between gyms. I can go anytime, literally…and that’s precisely what I need. It makes it really hard to come up with excuses not to workout when I can do it anytime and almost anywhere.
And while I’m here at Dad’s, working out with be more awesome than usual because after cardio, I’ll hit the pool. I plan to swim at least a few miles over the next week, and I’m really looking forward to how that will make me feel. I’ve kept my eating under control over the last couple of days too so I’m moving in the right direction, and it feels good.
I’m tired so I’m going to sleep, but I have to say that I miss you guys. I hope you’re all enjoying this busy yet awesome season. Sending out some virtual hugs to you……Good night from Oklahoma! 🙂
