Day of rest...


My scale is showing good progress this week. It's amazing how it'll do that when you track what you eat, exercise, drink water and have some support (meetings/friends). Add a healthy yoga and meditation practice into that, and I'm going for goal, baby! I'm with Oprah, you have to take care of your whole body to sustain the lifestyle changes.

This morning I met my girls for our weekly coffee (my first WW meeting got cancelled, but a few of us still meet every Saturday morning, same time as our meeting but a much more comfortable venue). We didn't go for our walk because C. & E. were both feeling under the weather. The other C. and I walked there, did a long loop and then headed home. My heart rate monitor says I was in the zone for just over 2 hours. I'll take it!

Stopped at the local meat market and picked up some homemade perogies, fabulous bacon and some venison Italian sausage. Tomorrow we're heading to the Farmer's Market after we run, so I'll get my fresh stuff there. I may have to go to Safeway or venture over to the Co-op and get some canned stuff, though.

I also popped into Shopper's Drug Mart and got a pumice stone. I think that if I'm heading back to the pool, I should give myself a pedicure. I have ugly, dry, runner's feet. I'm the first to admit it. Since the boy is sick, I may as well wash my hair and give myself cute toe nails!

Picked up a few magazines, too, so the rest of the day involves dishes, laundry, magazines, a lesson (or two) of review in French and a yoga practice. It's a good day to rest!
