Yesterday afternoon I bid on and won a Magic Bullet on eBay. I have heard nothing but rave reviews about it so I thought I would get one. I have been using the regular blender to make our protein shakes but I don't like having the blender on the counter 24/7 so I think this will be a nice solution. They retail for $99 + $34.99 shipping and handling through their website but I got mine for $51 + $15.99 shipping and handling so basically 1/2 off. It will be here in a week or so. If you have one, how do you like it? Pros? Cons?
I bailed out on Grace last night. I am a LOSER. It was my own fault but I did not plan well yesterday and did not have a proper lunch. I had snacky type stuff but nothing sustaining so by the time I got home my blood sugar was way low so I called and cancelled. I feel like a shmuck but onward and upward.
We did go on our walk this morning! We haven't been very consistent about our morning walks but we are still getting up at 6:00 a.m. every morning. I may need to get up just a little earlier because it takes me about 15 mins to wake up and get dressed to get going. If we could leave at 6:00 a.m. or a few minutes after and walked for a 1/2 hour that would be good. I could come back and jump in the shower and get ready for work. I am not particularly a morning person but I really want to make this a habit so I will make whatever adjustments are needed to make it happen.
Tonight we are going to Round Table and meeting up with all of Dave's immediate family. It is his mother's first birthday after her passing last summer. Dave is actually the patriarch of the family now. Whoa! It will be good to see everyone. Hopefully, I can get some pictures. Speaking of pictures, Dave is not a fan of getting his picture taken. His justification for a while was his smile. He has had it fixed so I am not sure now why he still has an issue. He is about 20 lbs. overweight so maybe that is it. I barely have any pictures of us together. Part of that was on me but now that I am not horrified by seeing myself in a picture I am hoping he will be willing to have some taken of us. His friend just got a brand new camera so I am sure he would be happy to take some of us. He is a good looking man IMHO and I talk about him all the time here so it would be nice for you guys to see him right?
Tomorrow my mom and I are going to her friends 90th Birthday party! It is at a restaurant in Sunnyvale called Tarragon. I have been there before for company parties and the like. Should be fun. Not sure what the food situation will be but I will make good choices. I am on a roll again and I want to keep the momentum going so I can reach my next goal. Well that is about it. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and have some fun. Until next time...
