I woke up early this morning and I'm so glad I did. I have a lot to do today. Well, not a lot by my old standards but a few things nonetheless. I will do my regular workout and then shower and get ready for my meeting. Then I am going shopping for our anniversary and groceries. I'm not sure what I'm getting Tee yet but it will be fun looking for something. I still can't believe it's been 13 years since we met. Neither of us thought it would last that long. I'm grateful it has.
This picture is of Tee's Grandma. Isn't it lovely? It's another one of my favorites. She always looked so fashionable in her pictures. I just love the boots and the jacket. The winter scene is also pretty. She was from New Jersey. I wonder what she thought of California when she first moved there? Such a different climate.
I got a haircut yesterday! This is a big deal for me because I am always the last person on my list when it comes to doing things for people. I never do nice things for me. I have decided to do something for myself each week. To reward myself for all the hard work I'm doing working on my fitness and health. I have been eating better than I ever have in my whole life. I also lost another pound! I actually discovered I wasn't eating enough to compensate for the hard workouts I'm putting my body through. Who would have thought that eating more calories would help the weight loss start up again? Now I'm only 8 pounds from my goal weight!
I am doing Tae Bo which is really amazing. I saw results after my first two workouts. I love it. It really kicks my butt. I recommend it to anyone that wants to see fast results and get a really good hard cardio workout. It also incorporates some strength training for your abs and legs and butt too. I will be getting into that bathing suit with no shame this summer. I'm confident of that.
Of course I'm eating a lot less processed foods and more whole grains and fruits and vegetables. That has made a big difference. I'm proud of me. So I got my haircut. It's pretty cute I think, a little shorter than I really wanted but it will grow.
It's still pretty cold and we are supposed to get more rain. The city is working on a sewer system and of course they started on the main street in front of our house. It was a muddy mess but yesterday they started putting the pavement back. I hope they finish up soon so Xena and I can resume our long walks down that street. I know she's missing the exercise and I'm just missing getting out there.
It's Friday the 13th! I'm not superstitious about it but a lot of people are. Tomorrow is Valentines Day and Tee and I are baking Sugar Cookies. Heart shaped and frosted. I used to do this with my kids when they were little and we thought it would be fun to do together. I'll be making a much smaller batch but we're going to do it together. We have no big plans for V Day since our anniversary is Monday. But it's nice to just be together and do something fun.
OK, I have nothing much else to say. Hope everyone is having a beautiful morning and that today brings you nothing but good luck.
