FFF18 CHECK IN
Monday we went on a lovely picnic, then checked out the shops in a little town 75kms from here. It was a glorious day, sunny blue skies with top temp reaching into the 20c/68f. I managed to find my wedding outfit with a stamp of approval from my Bear. Also we did a lot of walking so my step count was good. Oh yes almost forgot we had afternoon tea in a café, so once again Lindy ate cake. LOL! I couldn't resist the caramel slice as its the first one I've had since being coeliac.
You wouldn't believe it had been such a nice day Monday, when we woke up Tuesday to dismal grey skies, thunderstorms and strong winds. I was very tempted to stay home from my aqua class but I braved the elements to go. Turned out to be a fun class, so I was happy I attended.
Wednesday was tai chi day. I was very good as didn't go out for cake and coffee afterwards, can you believe. That day I was in and out all day. Firstly for a hair cut, home for lunch, then tai chi, after that Bear took me to buy some aqua shoes. So my step count was pretty good.
Thursday my step count is always up as we do the grocery shopping.
Bear is trying to practice making a good sponge cake for when our daughter comes to visit during the school holidays. So he busied himself making one Thursday night for me to take to my aqua class Friday morning. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately for me, the tins were too small. The cake rose and spilled over the sides. So even though I couldn't take it along to my class it was most appreciated by me. He has filled it with lemon curd and mascarpone, YUM!
Total count this week 3 exercise classes.
Plenty of steps.
Decluttered and cleaned the cupboard under the kitchen sink.
Scales went down around 1kg/ 2.2 pounds.
Despite eating cake all the exercising is helping me to lose weight.
Today is the first day of winter down under and boy did we know it. My phone told me it was 2.9c feels like 0.4c at 7am this morning. I think we are in for a long, cold winter from the very start. Mother nature has been hormonal lately, think she has finally shown her true colours. Hope you are all enjoying your warmer weather in the northern hemisphere. Stay warm all my friends down under in Australia and New Zealand.
Have a good weekend.
Hugs Lindy xx
