Day 16: Freedom!

Today I had no classroom classes.  It was lovely.  No time restraints, no rushing from place to place.  I only had to exercise.  I loved it.  It is rare to have this kind of free time!  I slept in, did water aerobics, played a little bit of water volleyball, and actually had time to sit in the hot tub for a bit.  I then did some walking on the treadmill and met with my nutritionist.  I started working on my meal plan for the first few weeks I am home. 

I am trying to prepare myself for my new life requirements - planning, planning, planning!  It is going to be quite an adjustment!  I know there are a lot of people who operate this way - always planning things out, always having their list for the grocery store and sticking to it, mostly being healthy.  I have some opportunities for improvements in these areas (to say the least).  Luckily, Leslie (my nutritionist) is working with me on some decent options - and I am now armed with some delicious & healthy options.  She is also bumping up my daily calorie allowance, so that will help make sure I have some wiggle room.  And the food is only half of it!  I still need to get my butt to the gym!!!  I'll get it all figured out - it just seems a bit overwhelming when looking at it from the safe cocoon of the DFC.

I apologize for the lame entry today.  I don't know that anything noteworthy happened today!  I have kind of been dragging all day, and now my brain is following suit!  I will attempt to brainstorm, and come up with something interesting to share by the end of my day tomorrow.  Have a great evening, all!  Behave.

Keep up the great job. And I can't help much with the exercise at the gym when you get back...but if you ever want to walk around the Lakes...drop me a note! Paula (pjk96max@hotmail.com)

  3. Natalie - as an update to my trip to the Nail Salon on Saturday - all of my fending off of my ticklishnes tendencies was all in vain - Tuesday night swim resulted in destruction of my "Revved up and Reddies" - Sad - but okay - swimming felt really good :)
