Good morning, all.
I've started waking up very early again after a spell of sleeping in until between 5:30 and 6:30. Could it be the teacher thing coming out as the new school year starts, I wonder?
I've just taken a peek outside and brrrr - the door was hurriedly closed again! There's a beautiful moon though.
Swimming was great. The pool feels warmer again - I wonder if they reduce the temperature during the summer months. At present I am doing 40 minutes at a time which enables the whole thing from door to door to take just over two hours, which is affordable. It seems to have settled into a three visit week - Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and any extra is a bonus.
I had a lovely time with my friend, Val, over lunch. She had a second helping of my home made soup which is always a way to my heart! We've arranged the next get together for next month!
At weigh in, I found that I've lost 2lbs this week which is great! It all seems to be going really well at present
All being well, I'm off into town this morning, on the bus, of course! After looking at what I already have for the winter, I realise I'm going to have to buy some more clothes at some point. The trouble is, when you're very big, you tend to stick to places like Evans or be thankful if your size is on the rail, so I really have no idea what is out there. We've got some nice clothes shops in Chelmsford, smaller ones as well as larger ones like M&S and Debenhams, so I'm going to take a look. Just window shopping and trying on, not buying anything yet. It's a re-education thing, I think. The only thing I need as a matter of more urgency is some sort of winter coat. I think I've already mentioned that the coat I have is now falling off me and the older (VERY much older) ones are still a bit too small.
I have a Costa coffee gift card so I might treat myself.
Thinking the above through, I've just realised that one of the nicest things about using the bus is that I don't have to leave too early in order to find a parking space. Excellent!
Then I MUST get stuck into some planning. Back to the grindstone now.
Have a great day, whatever you have planned.
