So my sister is up visiting me this week and will stay through the weekend. We've been doing great on our eating and I am showing her some of the tricks to sticking to the calorie regimen I've set up. Of course she's a lot lighter than me, so she doesn't get to eat as many calories if she wants to lose weight. Surprise!!! Who knew there would be a down side to being thin? Ha!
Anyway, my sister really missed her calling in life. She was meant to be the warden at a prison for hardened criminals or something. She doesn't take "no" for an answer, and that held true tonight when I wanted to skip my treadmill. Let me first explain that I fully intended to get on the treadmill. I wasn't being lazy. Strangely, everything went wrong on my way to do that, and I quickly became very, very crabby. CRABBY!!! And I didn't have the right headphones for my ipod, and I couldn't find a fan in the 90 degree room, and the ipod player kept cutting out on me, and another little person with us was irritating me to no end, and on and on and on . . . I finally got on, but I couldn't shake the rotten mood. So I worked hard on the treadmill for 20 minutes and got off. To no avail, however. I was short 10 minutes of cardio, so my sis made me get in the pool and swim to make up the missing 10 minutes. So I reluctantly climbed in. But that wasn't really enough. She made me WORK those last 10 minutes. My legs are killing me! It works different muscles and ouch!!! After my 10 minutes of hard swimming she had me doing water aerobics, working the sides of my legs.
In the end, I was thrilled. And my sister worked pretty hard herself. So yay us! And that makes it possible for us to have a glass of wine together and spend a little extra time in the pool this weekend. SO yay us again!!!! Hahaha.
I'll let you know how the rest of the weekend goes. We're gonna keep at it. Take care all, and God Bless you real good!!!
