By the time we returned we were both drenched in sweat. But it was the good kind of sweat. 🙂
So my motivated brain got to thinking…. I have Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday off from work …. I have paintings to draw for my September 1st, Artist in Residence thingy at the South Dakota State Fair still to do … and why not motor back to Tyndall…grab my art stuff and other gear and come back and lounge about and what not and get in two more miles each day, rounding out a total of 10 miles of walking in 5 days…. PERFECTO!
Also, I’m still planning on rearranging my apartment and moving my bedroom to the other room that does not have earwigs roaming about it in. I plan on doing that tomorrow morning after I wake up. Plus that will burn even more calories too since I also have to lug my ginormous treadmill from room to room too.
If I can walk more loops around… like hit up the morning and then later in the evening, better yet.
But the original goal is to get in 10 miles before my birthday party begins on Wednesday. As of today, July 13th, I have 30 of my lap band supporters coming to help celebrate me turning 46 and my one-year bandiversary!!! YIPPEEE-YAWHOOZEEEE!!!!
If you’re in the vicinity and want to walk with my mom, the Chihuahuas: Yogi and his daughter Baily and I, email me or text me … and we’ll all go together.
