The day started early for me. I was up at 4 am which isn't all that unusual after a night of 11 hours of sleep!! I was hurting a little in my back...also not so surprising, because I only took 1 tylenol arthritis pill last night before bed. Trying to cut back on those and I think I can do it. I am not starving this morning...6 hours of sleep is way better than 0!!
I have a very busy day...and it will be stressful!! I do laundry at 7am until 11:30 am then I go exercise. I am so looking forward to exercising!! I want to try to go longer on the bike today. I know I can, I am usually just so pressed for time. (But I am worth it... so I am going to take the time!!) Next I volunteer for 6 hours. We have Kid's Group tonight and we are having a manners dinner. We are trying to teach the kids in the group that proper manners will get you far in life!! The parents are involved in this activity...they are actually bring the food. We had a sign up and some people are bring the main dish, some a salad, one fruit tray...and unfortunately 3 people are bringing desserts. I think because they are easy...people shoot for dessert. I would have like to say...why not a veggie tray instead...but I bit my tongue and said that was fine!! I don't want to deprive the kids of sugar totally...but I also don't want them to end up like me...weighing over 200 pounds!!
Anyway, it should be an interesting dinner!! I don't have kids, so this is some of my kid time...unfortunately they are not the best behaved kids. I will be glad when Jimmy is back in town and I can see my great nephew, Ethan!! I love that little guy!! (I love Jimmy, too.)
Well, today is going to be so busy! I don't think I have been busy for 12 hours in one day for quite awhile. At least not 12 hours straight!! When I worked at the hospital I worked 12 hours shifts...let's just say I was younger then and could handle 12 hour days!!
I think it is suppose to be in the 60's again today. I love Spring!! I should be getting my air conditioner soon. Then when it is hot out...I can be comfortable. I don't like it freezing cold...but I do like some cool in my apt. Right now I can open the door and windows and get a breeze going through. In August...especially during the day...that isn't possible!!
Well, it is already 5 am and I need to get off this computer and eat something healthy!! I hope you have a great day and make healthy choices...in everything you do! I am going to try to make healthy choices tonight at our manners dinner...not sure what that will be, but I know I can eat fruit...I will be skipping the fry bread...and I hope to be able to eat some of the main dish or a salad. I will eat a healthy lunch and snack in the afternoon, so I won't be too hungry tonight.
Wish me...strength to make good choices all day long!! I am really going to try hard!!
Have a great day!!! Remember...it is what you make it!!
