I realize I am posting all out of order, and it is probably confusing. But this post is about the day after the quilt show when I was still at my friend’s house in Oregon. I guess we were pretty tired from our two days of traveling to Sisters and back, so we pretty much spent the day in our ‘pajama clothes’ watching movies and doing handwork. It was drizzly and cool outside–just a perfect day for lazing around. We watched several pretty good movies, including Music and Lyrics, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day–this was really an amusing movie.
When I finally looked outside, the scenery was just beautiful, so I grabbed my camera and took a few shots from their deck. Oregon is really a beautiful state.
Just a bit about today…Vicky set up a circuit for me to do. It was a lot like Jillian’s Shred, but harder, and I didn’t have Jillian yarping at me the whole time. Just Vicky saying quietly, 10 more seconds. We did the circuit 3x, about 30 minutes total, then did some stretching and a couple other exercises after that. I was really wiped! But I like that she teaches me different stuff. This is something I can actually set up and do at home in my little living room, and listen to music that I like instead of doing the same DVD over and over. I have to admit, I like the weight machines more. When we were done, I took a quick dip in the pool and swam 4 laps. I’ve eaten really well all three days since I came home–less than 1300 calories each day! Its not so hard when you make every food choice count–something that is nourishing as well as something that I actually like and WANT to eat.
Back to work tomorrow. This has been an excellent vacation. Have a nice weekend, everyone!
