Today was crazy! It’s november 7th and this morning at 8am it was 75F outside and it got warmer and warmer. When I was lying at the pool in my freetime it was more than 80F and I was about to melt away in the sun. It was awesome! And it is November!! I don’t wanna go back to Sweden where there are no palm trees, no sun, no beaches, no dolphins…
It feels like I’ve been here one month per season. One in the winter, one in the spring, one in the summer and right now I’m in my fourth, the fall. It sure doesn’t feel like ten!!
When it comes to work it was a kinda weird day. The girl had minimum day, which means she got off school at noon instead 2pm. But I picked her up at a friend’s 45min later to drive her to the boy’s school where she was gonna do 2h of community service in his class. So then I had a second freetime for an hour today. And then at 3pm I picked up them both and we went to Swedish School. But we were only there for an hour because the boy had cub scout meeting so his mom picked him up and then of course the girl wanted to come too.
So I got off work at 5:30, did some errands, for example I bought my $15 gift to my next LCC meeting when we are gonna play a game called White Elephant, a Christmas gift game. I bought a hand lotion and lip balm from Ulta and I think I will try and get that gift on Dec 8th. They both smelled delicious!
After that I went to the gym for the second time this week. First I ran 35 minutes on the treadmill and then one hour of yoga. It is surprisingly hard and I have to start doing that regularly so it won’t hurt so much doing the different postures. I’ve also decided that I’m gonna practice for the 5K run I’m gonna do in a month. So I will try to run at least one 5K run every week at the gym. One 5K run is about 3miles and today I ran 2.3, so it shouldn’t take too much time. We’ll see.
I’m just glad I’ve started working out again and I’ve really tried eating healthy this week and since Monday I’ve lost 4lbs already. Now that I see results I will hopefully keep going like this. 2.5 weeks in bikini awaits me in January!
