It was spin class this morning. I honestly don't know how Joseph can get my legs to a state of exhaustion so quickly! That means that I'm NOT in as good as shape as I would like. Well - my legs need to be stronger I guess. But cranked out another 31 KM in the class. All is good and there is no better feeling than walking out of the gym after one of those workouts! I could conquer the world!
But I seem to have a wee problem with my eye this morning. It's like I've a piece of sand under my eyelid. I tried flushing it out in the shower, but no go. Hopefully it will float away later today. Doesn't hurt, just annoying!
I did paperwork yesterday - not a lot, but enough. I spent the morning at a barbell class at the gym! We didn't lift a ton of weights - a lot of talking, but that's OK. Better to learn the techniques - I have the worst posture ever! I really need to work on that.
I also spent some time cleaning up the backyard. It was such a nice day and well - after a winter with two dogs, it needed to be done.
And that DAMN book. It's an Anne Perry and while it's hard to read - not the book itself, but it takes place in the last 1800's and so the style and language is completely different. And what can I say - sitting in the front room with the sun blazing in - it's hard not to have a wee nap! I really must find a more comfortable chair though! I want one of those oversized chairs that has a good head rest so when I fall asleep, I don't wake up choking on my drool!!! That was too much information - I know!
Let's not forget that it was beautiful outside yesterday and I had to take a walk. I just had to! I have several routes that I take depending on what errands I need to do. I made it to Loblaws where I bought this.
So if anyone was thinking that I was deficient in calcium, I'm now good.
On my way home, I took a detour so I could stop by Tim's. I don't know why - it's this stupid Roll up the Rim and in the several weeks that it's been happening, I haven't won a single thing. Very annoying and very unusal as I've usually won sevral things by now.
Guess what? I won yesterday. Guess what I won? A stupid DONUT!!! Now how am I supposed to eat the darn donut? I might trade it in for a scone. But that is also probably loaded with stuff I shouldn't be eating. Just my luck!!! My god - a scone is 360 calories!!!! I won't be having a scone. I could have an oatmeal raisin cookie for 210 calories. If I eat that on a day when I do spin class, it won't be so bad and if I walk to Tim's that's even better. Isn't it insane to be this silly about the food that I eat? But those pounds are coming off and I'm not ruining a good thing. It's all about awareness and choices!!!!
Even with all that other stuff, I did manage to get a table runner quilted. That was it - just one small table runner!!!

Does this happen at your house? I start the day off with a clean kitchen table. And by the end of the day, it looks like this? Seriously - I have to learn to put things away!!
|A mess from ONE day|
Actually it looks a whole lot worse at the moment as I took some stuff from the office and put it on and around the kitchen table. Things that I want to deal with today. I'm trying to get stuff cleaned up in the office, as well as paperwork and I can't forget that I have slightly more than three weeks before the long arm goes in for servicing. There is NO time for delay, but I seem to find lots to delay myself!
Oh - one good thing happened yesterday. I went to write a pattern only to discover the pattern was already written!!! Yeah!!!
On that note, I'm out of here.
Have a super day!!!
