The ups and downs of the week ahead...
Sunday, February 13, 2011
Thankfully most of my week is the Ups. Today my sons are cooking us dinner in celebration of our Anniversary tomorrow. I love Valentines Day – the day of Love! Thus the reason we married on that day. It also has my name in it – Val. To me that has always made it special.
My husband gave up his vacation day tomorrow for his co-worker who decided to get married – oh, yeah to a girl named Valerie. How ironic. So instead of spending it with him I’m pampering myself with a Thermal Mineral Kur at the spa. It starts with a foot soak in mineral waters then a mud wrap and a full body massage. I am so looking forward to my visit to the spa.
I’m dropping my cat off at the vet in the morning for surgery – he has had a problem with his throat and can’t meow anymore. He also makes some really weird sounds sometimes so I made the appointment last week for surgery. I really don’t want to lose another animal so soon – we put our toy poodle to sleep last year and our oldest cat the year before.
On Tuesday night I’m celebrating a friend’s birthday with dinner out at an Italian restaurant. That will be a hard dinner to refrain from a calorie overload. They make the best manicotti in the world – they use homemade crepes. Oh and their sauce is the best in town.
Wednesday I will take my first resistant band fitness class. I missed the first class last week because of illness. I know I was better off not going, but I hate paying for a class and not going. This is one of my motivators for working out – taken classes at the local college. If I pay for it I go!
Thursday is the anniversary of my mother’s death. I’m not new to death in my life having lost my dad when I was 6. I just have that stressful (sadness) emotional eating thing that I fight with too often. And this brings me to why Friday is…
My one year anniversary with Spark People! I have too much to say about this day so I will blog again soon!
