I’m all poufy today so I am wearing extra heavy duty compression. It makes you look quite skinny when you wear abdominal and pelvic compression but it makes you feel really fat because everything is so tight. I usually only make it a half day before I take it off. I worked out a couple of times without wearing my compression socks and this is the consequence. Silly me.
I’ve been on a buying spree lately and it’s starting to freak me out! We bought plane tickets for our vacation in April, I bought an expensive heart – rate monitor and then yesterday I ordered a new computer. For the computer I used all of our Discover cash-back bonus money so I only had to put out $13.00. My home laptop is a 5 year old netbook. It’s been a trooper (trouper? Is it a vaudevillian dancer or a soldier?) but it’s almost unusable these days.
I have one more expense, a quick little three day trip with my daughter. She and I will head back up to Frankenmuth and do some shopping and eating and swimming and we will go to the movies to see the 2nd Hobbit movie. Just a good time to relax and hang out. I love my daughter so we will enjoy it. I hope the weather is nice. Last time we did this there was a cold snap and it was so cold! After I typed that I went and checked the forecast. Sigh…weather is supposed to drop down in the lower 20’s. How sad. Guess we’ll just stay inside and watch tv and eat cookies.
My heart rate monitor has been a revelation about the way I workout. My morning workouts have definitely slacked off. Now that I think about it I realize I’ve been doing the exact same thing for about a year with no increase in intensity so I guess it makes sense that my heart rate looked like I was napping. Time to step it up.
I’ve felt very sad and blah the last couple of weeks. Probably just the weather. Mostly I just want to sit.
I think this is the hotel we will stay at for the first part of our vacation:
or maybe this one:
I’m trying to find highly rated lower priced hotels for Paris that are close to the Metro line and in a neighborhood with plenty of cafe’s or stores. We won’t spend much time there unless it’s bad weather. Corey’s leaning towards Printemps as it’s cheaper.
