The long and winding road to fitness, day 34

Icees!

What a wild and crazy day this was.  The auditor is in a nearby store, we have to be prepared…our district manager is coming for a visit,  more preparation.  Run, run, run…oh, no auditor today.  Oh, the district manager will be visiting on Saturday instead of today…so, another day wasted without getting any real work done…ahh…gotta love that!!

But I also had another good day with the eating and exercising…finished the day with 1625 calories and walked for 40 minutes,did lower body strength training, 8 exercises, 2 sets of each…not bad, not bad at all.  There was one time that I thought about heading to the break room for a bag of chips from the vending machine, but I ate an Icee  (I don’t know if that’s what they’re really called…maybe not…it’s those frozen slushy kind of things in the long tubes.)  that someone was nice enough to bring for all of us…and on a hot day like today, that tasted really good.  Totally satisfied me.

I also had a nice visit with a good friend (hey, Margaret)…she moved out of town, so now we don’t see one another like we did in the past.  We’ve got to get together and do something fun before summer ends.  We used to go to auctions and festivals frequently, now we see one another only occasionally.  So today was good.  Isn’t it a blessing to have good friends?  And have you noticed, the best of friends can pick right up where they left off no matter how long it’s been since they were together?

What fun things do you do with your friends during the summer?

  1. You had another successful day! I had about 1300 cal., only walking around exercise, went to lunch & shopping with my niece. I’ve not had much opportunity to do things with friends in the past with work. If we get a chance, we meet for lunch, go to a quilt show when one is in town, rubber stamp convention annually, or thrift store shopping.

    • Another good day for you too, Patti…you’re consistently doing well! Hey, all those things you do with your friends from work sound like fun…I hope you have a fun-filled weekend~

  2. Don’t think I’ve tried one of those iced things in a tube since about 1974 but the kids have about a gazillion in the freezer. Are they as good as back then or is it like the spaghettio deal? Not the same. Hmm, maybe I’ll try one and find out.

    • I’m not sure what flavor I had with that icey thingy in a tube yesterday(and if you can’t figure out what flavor you’re eating, that probably tells you something)…but it hit the spot in the heat of the afternoon!

  3. You’re doing great! And you are right about old friends. They can pick up where they left off and it seems like no time has passed. 🙂

  4. You are the greatest! When you get a car, you can come up here and we can find something to do. Always wonderful talking to you.
