Nothing too exciting took place between my last post and this AM. I am painting for two upcoming events. On Saturday the 15th is a benefit for a 21-year-old named Matthew Peed who was in a horrific motorcycle accident on July 21st and suffered from traumatic brain injury.
His mom and I were in the same Class of 1985 in high school …. and his journey has been a hard struggle thus far. There is a benefit dinner, silent auction, regular auction and dance at the Tyndall (SD) Auditorium this Saturday. I have donated 5 paintings for the silent auction.
The second event is St. Leo’s Catholic Church Bazaar on Sunday, the 16th. I also donated paintings for their raffle drawings. You can see what I donated at my art site www.wetinkwisdom.com for both events. And on top of doing all of those this weekend, I am busy painting new stuff for the upcoming vendor blender season (between late Sept thru December).
The only exercising that I had was walking back and forth to my car; going in and outside of The Dollar Store; and walking back and forth to the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. I didn’t even get in any cozy naps!
I did hook up with a good friend of mine last evening for Mexican. My usual fare used to be chicken fajitas. I wasn’t sure what to order last night so I opted for nachos with ground beef and shredded chicken. The thing is with that was … I had eaten my “brunch” yesterday around 10:30AM and I was still “full” when I met my friend. The old Amy wouldn’t have cared less but Bandster Amy did care and I ate anyways. I felt awful for the rest of the night.
Today, I am strictly sticking to liquids only. I have already drank a protein shake that consisted 1% milk; vanilla yogurt and two scoops of vanilla whey protein powder (blended in the blender) … I will consume plenty of water today too. Later I’ll be touring the village on foot and head to the Wellness Center. It is a hottie out today too but I will get in my exercise no matter what.
I am also going to call my surgeon’s office to schedule a third fill before Sept 27th rolls around. That particular day ends my 90 days from surgery date to get in on not being charged for the fills. Remember when I wrote about after the 90 days were up? …. Fills after the 27th will be $100 each time. <gulp> I would love to be in the green zone after my 3rd fill too.
