Tell me something good, Tuesday
That's going to be easy for me today. Yesterday, I went to the gym in the morning and rode the bike for 45 minutes (16 miles), and picked up a game of racquetball.
This morning I woke up at 4:30, headed to the gym, and clocked in 30 minutes, just at 10 miles, and several chapters in my book. I have fewer than 15 pages to finish.
I ate perfectly yesterday, drank my quota of water, and now today I see another good day forming.
This week is a busy one, not like any weeks are not, but I am thinking about joining Weight Watchers next week.
I have been thinking about it for awhile now, and I think I can actually schedule it into my life starting next Wednesday.
Oh yeah, I weighed in yesterday morning at 248. Now, that is two pounds down from my official weigh-in for the competition.
If you remember that morning I weighed in at 251.5 pounds, and then in the afternoon the scale said 250.
Any way you look at it, I have lost at least two pounds, and I dropped down below the "50" marker.
And on the doctor-like scale, that means that I don't have to move the marker over to the 250 point anymore.
I was worried I wouldn't be able to squeeze my exercise in this morning because Jordie has call at 6:45 a.m. for the play.
He is a pirate (Mad Willie) in Okanogan High School's "Pirates of Penzance," and they are actually touring to other schools today and tomorrow.
(Shameless plug: Come to the show at Okanogan High School this Friday, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. or Sunday at 2 p.m.)
So, this means we have to leave my house at 6:30 a.m. for today and tomorrow. Normally, my mornings are not quite so busy.
I have several meetings this week, I am going to try to schedule a chiropractor's appointment, and maybe a massage (at least for next week), and I am headed out of town.
I leave on Friday to take a group of kids over to the regional competition for National History Day, but we will be back late Saturday.
I am bummed that I will miss one of Jordie's performances, but I don't schedule the universe, I just have to work around it.
And, somewhere in there I need to work out. But, I can do it! I will make it all work!
And, that's the last word, until tomorrow.
