Fantastic Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! It's Good Friday today but it is also a Fantastic Friday for me.  I weigh daily and when I got on the scale this morning, this is what I saw. I don't usually take pics of my weight/scale but I needed evidence that it was true! That means I am down 5 lbs. since I started the Personal Training and it is 12.5% of my goal to be down to 215 by September. The lowest I have been on this journey is 248 and everything after that is new territory. What an excellent way to start my day!

I came up with the idea to go to dinner with my mom tomorrow and then be on my own on Sunday. That way we can avoid some of the crowds but still get together to celebrate Easter. I think I want to leave her caregiver at home so it is just the two of us. We shall see. Dave is going back over the hill today. I cried when I left my apartment this morning. What a sap I am! I have never been good at goodbyes. It has been nice having his company though.

Going to the gym this weekend is on the agenda. I plan on doing cardio and some resistance. I also would like to swim but we'll see.  I also want to go to the mall which to me is an adventure. They call it a Shopping Town and there are 192 stores. I want to go to Tiffany to drop off my necklace for cleaning, The Body Shop to use a Groupon I have and to Bare Escentuals to get my makeup done.

Hope you all have a nice weekend and Easter if you celebrate. Until next time...

P.S. I have a giveaway planned for next week :-)
