Time to add some exercise

So far the diet is going fine. I haven't cheated. When I went to Taco Villa today, I had a grilled chicken salad instead of my usual meat burrito grande. Josh and I went to dinner at Chili's last night and I had the grilled chicken & shimp dinner and only ate half. I know I need to start adding exercise though. So I made an impulse purchase today. I ordered a total gym from QVC. I've decided that I probably wouldn't make myself get out of the house and go to a gym or a class. I still plan to get a treadmill as well but haven't decided which one yet.
Today was rather productive so far. I went shopping in town and got a new dress for the Koobraey awards. I wouldn't let myself look at any other clothes because I'm not going to allow myself to buy anything until I lose weight and need a smaller size. I also got a pair of dress shoes that seem relatively comfortable since I'll wear them for several hours that night. I got my car washed and then I got more light fixtures for the house. My brother came last weekend and changed out lights in the living room, hallway, guest room, and Josh's bedroom. The light in the living room hasn't work for well over a year and I've just been using a lamp. Today I got a new light for my bedroom, a light for the kitchen, and a hanging light for above the kitchen table and finally one for the entry way.
I came home and set up a new cat litter box for my cat Tecko. I don't know if it's because he's getting old, but he keeps doing his business in the house. I didn't really want to deal with a litter box but I found one that is covered with a door flap and has a sifting tray. I hope he'll start using it instead of the floor.
Tomorrow I have to go to the school to start setting up for Koobraey. Hopefully we'll be able to get most of it done. I have a lot to do tomorrow. I also have to get a bunch of folders made for Congress on Monday. It would be a day off but I have to go to help with our district Congress competition. One of the joys of being on the committee this year. (Note the sarcasm)
Well, I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but I need to head to bed shortly. Tomorrow will be a very full day.

Yep, it's back to business. Hope you can things done, that's what I will try here too.

I am dying to try taco villa. You talk about it so much and it sounds so good. I know what would make you lose weight: brussel's sprouts, rutabagas, and lots of southern vegetables like turnip greans and field peas. lol I know your adversion to vegetables.

Have you ever posted pictures of your Prius? I would love to see it. I am especially interested in seeing the dash and the battery meter.

Love you dear friend and I will talk to you again soon.

I am like you, I would be much more inclined to use exercise equipment in my home than making the effort to go to a gym. I'll have to check out some of the QVC stuff.

Your kitty using the bathroom in the might have his kidneys checked. He may be fighting an infection. Pretty common in older cats.

Good luck with the Congress competition! Sleep well my friend.

LOL @ Andrew and the vegtables!

I've been thinking of you. I cleaned out the last bits of my mother's house and it's all landed in my garage and basement. I should take a picture before I start to clean it all up and out. My Christmas decorations are still up. UGH!

Wish me luck this weekend.
