I finally got some time to myself! I didn't get it last month, so I was really needing it. I got to spend the day doing whatever I wanted, alone. So I went to the range to do a little target practice with hubby's 9mm Sig Sauer. Out of 100 rounds, I only hit the bullseye once; I need a lot more practice. And I went to the bookstore. I had a list of books I wanted, but only found one of them: Toe Up Socks For Every Body by Wendy Johnson. I also picked up Governor Perry's new book "Fed Up!", which I'd been wanting, but forgot to put on my list. I was going to get some educational books from the "What your ---- grader needs to know" but I changed my mind when I was flipping through the first grade one and found a blatant (and very offensive) lie. I got the girls some fiction books instead; I prefer when fiction is labeled as fiction. lol. I went to the LYS and wandered around petting yarn. I only bought one skein, because I really need to use up some of the yarn I already have. The skein I bought is Ultra Alpaca Sock yarn in a soft, dark heathered green; it'll become some lovely lace socks. I was pleasantly surprised that the price on that yarn had gone down!
I finished up my time with a workout. I worked my arms and shoulders and did 20 minutes on the bike and 15 on the stair-stepper. When I got home, I measured and weighed myself. In the past week, I've lost 4 pounds, and 2 inches off my waist and 1 inch off my hips! So it's really working! I intend to keep Saturday as my weigh/measure day, so I won't be obsessing over the numbers during the rest of the week.
