After yesterday's little disappointment with the pool, I'm all set to go today instead so fingers crossed that the water will have heated up properly.
I had a little think about it all and have decided that the time has come for me to start using some of the other facilities in the gym. In the New Year, I will request another health check and then go into what my options are and what I can start doing. I'm not fond of classes but there's a lot of equipment and individual stuff that should help with toning. You see, at my age there's a lot of loose and wrinkled skin now I've lost a significant amount of weight. I've accepted that and it's not a problem as such, but it is not a pretty sight and toning up would help, I think.
Anyway, there's no harm in asking, is there. It has got to be things I enjoy or I won't keep it up but unless I know, I can't make decisions.
That was yesterday's little thought for the day anyway!
Today the pool had better be warm enough! When I come out, I will go three shops down to Matalan and have a good nosey round there before going home.
I was rootling through my file of recipes to get some ideas for the week's meals and realised that it's all a bit of a mess, so today I want to sort them all out a bit better to make it easier to find things. They are all Slimming World friendly recipes so it's well worth the effort. I've found another file to overflow into which is a mercy as the current one is bursting at the seams
Later on, Beth and Alex are coming round to spend the evening and overnight here which will be nice although Beth is still not 100% well. We might watch some of our traditional Christmas DVDs that we didn't get a chance to watch before Christmas.
I'm doing everyone's request for dinner so I'm having salmon, Beth is having the higgidy pie (squash and feta, I think it is) that she didn't have over Christmas because of being ill while Alex has requested pizza. Luckily, I have some garlic bread in the freerer and will make some coleslaw for him. Beth craves roasties (she likes my roasties) and we will share the same vegetables.
I doubt very much that we will see the New Year in together though. I won't be able to last out for a start!
And that's it really for today. Have a great day and if you are celebrating tonight, have a fantastic time.
See you all next year!
Sounds like a busy day and like you I don't fancy staying awake tonight I have plenty of sleep to catch up on so Happy New Year until tomorrowReplyDelete
Thanks, Diane. Have a great day yourself too.ReplyDelete
I hope the pool is warm enough today! I'm sure there's something that will help with the toning. Good for you for losing weight. It definitely isn't easy. Hope you enjoy your New Year's Eve. I shall stay up as I usually don't go to bed until midnight but I think husband has decided to go to bed as usual. He's working today so was up at 4am. I doubt he'll last until midnight!ReplyDelete
Sadly, it wasn't so I came home again. Disappointing really but not to worry.Delete
I think the loose skin and a need for some serious toning activities are going to feature in my life, so I'll be interested to hear what you decide to do.ReplyDelete
I hope you have a lovely New Year's Eve with Beth and Alex.
I suppose there's always cosmetic surgery as well < tongue very firmly in cheek >Delete
I'll let everyone know. :-)
