Today is a good day. So far anyway. I woke up this am and hit the recumbent bike, did 6.25 miles, stretches and then hit the shower. Woke up the grumpy children still in their holiday hangovers. Got 3 kiddos to 3 different schools. Ran to Target to get the book I had been waiting on. The latest in the House of Night series. (yes I know. It's a teeny bopper book series, but I like it.) I was the first one to get one and the nice overnight stoker guy pulled one out just for little ole me.
Arrived at work with an empty in box. Oh hell yeah. That happens very rarely and I stayed up late last night getting it that way, but I was watching that most awesome football game. Man, I'm kinda glad OU didn't play Stanford this year because they looked WAY awesome. Tish must be proud. And tonight we have the Sugar Bowl. I love football!
OH and the really exciting news is that exactly 9 days from now, I'll be on the beach. Yippee. First couples only trip in 10 years and my husband and I finally get one. We are going to Miami, and a resort in Key West. Never been, and I've always wanted to drive through the Keys. So frequent flier miles and Marriott Points and we have a cheapo trip which should be great. We'll be gone for 5 days, 4 nights while the Nanas have the kiddies. Yeah me!
And the funny thing was I don't even give a poo about getting into a bathing suit. Of course I've been fat so long I've let go of a lot of that insecurity. If you don't, you don't live. But this time I am worried I won't have enough clothes to take because all of mine are too BIG not small. I have swim suits and while they'll be big, I don't even care because I'll have FIVE whole days sans children and I don't care where I am, even sitting in a hotel room in Toledo, it would be fun.
I'm not worried about vacation and travel food. I've been there done that. And there will be all kinds of fresh sea food which is totally easy to eat on the 1200cal thingy. Just ask Allan. AND I found out that the Saturday we'll be in the Keys is their annual Sea Food Festival. I think they are having a 5K that Saturday. Hell, maybe I'll do it, or do the fun walk. We'll see. There will be a lot of very skinny half naked people I'm sure. Anyway...who cares. I envision walk/jogs on the beach and long walks through town and hikes in the National park and swimming in the heated pools and Ahhh....I can hardly wait.
I had egg whites and toast with coffee for breakfast. I had tuna, carrots and light ranch for lunch. A grapefruit for snack w/ string cheese. That was AFTER my Tae Kwon Do class which, btw, kicked my ass. We did 20 kicks of front, side, round house and back kick EACH leg. AND she made us do a kick and hold position in each one for 10 sec, 3 times each. OUCHY. PLUS all our holds, forms and kicking drills. AND that was after the warm up, push ups and all that crap. It kicked everyone's booty today. As of right now I've had 96 oz water, 20 oz coffee and I am due for my diet Mountain Dew.
Dinner will be...well, I'll figure it out. I have to finish work and then head to TKD to pick up the kids. Man my hips are achy all ready. Just keep drinking! Then it's home, dinner, homework, baths and then hopefully kids in bed and me watching more football. (No. I don't ever get tired of it.)
And so, I'll ask: What have you done to move you closer to your goals today?
This is what I'm waiting for!
