Don't Forget To Get Y'all's Deddy's Something For Father's Day!
That’s right y’all, Sunday is Father’s Day so don’t forget. That is a picture of me and my Dad after my MFA graduation. He’s always proud of me (I should say most of the time) but I don’t think I’ve ever seen him more proud than the day I graduated from the University of Alabama. He’s the most sentimental Dad ever but I love that! So-Happy Father’s Day Dad!!! I look forward to having good food with you on Sunday and yes of course, I have a present for you. There is a chance that I will take a couple of pictures this weekend and as always, if I do, I will be sure to post them on my next blog.
I think that I have mentioned the elliptical that Cassandra purchased awhile back for our apartment. It is not as loose as the ellipticals at the gym. Basically, it feels like a Stair Master that Satan got a hold of...yeah...that one. Well, I RARELY get on it because I swear it nearly kills me every time. Yesterday, I didn’t get out of the bed in time to walk so I had to exercise after work. It was ridiculously hot outside so I decided to do the elliptical. I did it for 50 minutes and WOW...that thing should be banned. The good news is that I got my heart rate up way higher than it normally goes so I guess I got a good cardio workout but jeez...it was tough.
I am going to weigh in the morning at my apartment and I REALLY hope that I show at least a little loss. I’ve been working very hard and I haven’t cheated at all Monday-Saturday for 3 weeks so I’m thinking that I have made up for my birthday AND that I may be down. Even if it’s just a little bit then I will be happy but I want it to be something so I don’t get discouraged. There is only so much soup, green beans, fat free cheese and sugar free popsicles that I can take without the reward of losing weight so everyone keep their fingers crossed. I’m sure it will be a good result...I’ve got this. Either way, I will still be grumpily trudging along with the diet.
I get to see Jordan again this weekend! Woot. He is coming in for Father’s Day this weekend so we get to hang out. I think we have major party plans and/or plans to eat and catch up on some TV we both mutually watch. Hey-we are getting old. I can only really handle going “out” about once a month.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Father’s Day!!!
“And they said, Let me tell you a secret, about a fathers love,
A secret that my daddy said was just between us
You see daddies don’t just love their children every now and then,
It’s a love without end, Amen, it’s a love without end, Amen.” A Father’s Love-George Strait
