Getting ready for bed

I was washing my face, or brushing my teeth, and thought of something I wanted to post here, not only do I not remember it now, I forgot it before I left the bathroom. I was standing there looking at myself in the mirror saying, what was it? What was I going to say? It is completely gone.

Tonight I did just the AMT. But I wore my new skort, I like it for exercising, very comfortable. Need to let my aching muscles heal. I have been getting all kinds of advise for my muscles. A lady at the gym said to eat a banana beforehand, the potassium helps. My boss said to get Whey Protein Powder and mix it in water, 20 grams of protein, because if I am cutting calories I am probably not getting enough protein. I have not done either, and I don’t think I will have time to get any WPP before I go to work out tomorrow. Tomorrow I am trying to do 15 to 20 minutes on the elliptical and the whole Nautilus circuit.

Well, I took a picture of the blanket I knitted, it is in the camera, I wrapped the blanket in pink tissue paper then white paper with a bunch of cute saying on it, and stuck it in a gift bag, the bag is kind of yellow. Too much pink gives me a rash. I can’t decide if I am going to get a card. I know I should, I am just getting a little short on cash right now.

After the gym I went to Kohls. I got three tops, one brown cotton skirt (short) and another skort for working out. It was cheaper there than at Target, it was 50% off. I think I will wear it tomorrow.


Well, I did it. I got back to the gym and the nautilus machines. I kept the weights the same and I am sore today. But it is a good sore. Besides, that’s what they make Aleve for. Not much else of note for the weekend. M.L.’s husband is still in the hospital, I am guessing since she has not been in contact with anyone all weekend.

I went to Target and got a pair of casual pants for kicking around, lightweight for summer. Have plenty of sweat pants, but I don’t want to wear them in July! I also got a French Terry Skirt, should be down to my knees. I got the pants in Medium and the skirt in small. I didn’t get any more work out clothes, there was nothing I liked on the clearance rack.

This morning I mailed my state taxes. I have no idea why I waited this long to do so, I don’t think I have ever waited this long to mail them. Well, there was the one year I didn’t mail them at all. That was the year I was only getting a dollar back and they won’t send it to you unless you ask for it. So I just blew it off. This year I am getting $13 back.

This morning I weighed 139.6 pounds. I am not posting that on WW. I have decided I have to lose 10 pounds before I go to Washington. Two months, its doable, I just have to DO IT.
