I am leaving this morning for a fun-filled weekend with my two sisters in the Twin Cities. A weekend filled with shopping, eating and taking in Mamma Mia! at the Orpheum. I cannot wait!
Last year, when we did our sisters weekend, I was nervous about the eating part of the weekend and worried about the "damage" I would probably do. This year, I am not. I know tonight we will go out to eat, not sure where, but I am sure it will be somewhere good. Here’s the thing, though, I know I have the willpower and the confidence to make better choices this year than I did last year.
I know tomorrow we will spend the day at the Mall of America and I know I am going to eat some ice cream at my favorite place. Can’t wait. (I have to, I promised my one sister we would go there!) Tomorrow night, we will once again be going out to eat. And once again, I will have to make some choices, but I know I can do it. I am not apprehensive at all. I am not nervous. I am excited.
And if I do make a not-so-great choice, I know it will be okay because this morning, I did a 50-minute workout on the elliptical and tomorrow morning I plan on checking out the fitness center at the hotel. Plus, like I said, I am going to be walking around the mall all day long…that will be a lot of walking and I am counting it as exercise!
On Sunday, I am meeting up with a friend I haven’t seen in quite some time. She is taking me to Run ‘N’ Fun in St. Paul to look for a new pair of running shoes. She thinks she can score me a discount! Excited about that. Afterward, we are going to have tea and catch up with each other. I can’t wait.
So, I have a big weekend ahead of me, but I feel really good about it. I definitely feel a lot better about it than I did last year. I can’t wait to spend some time with my sisters – Donna and Karen. We always have a great time and I love them so much!
I will let everyone know how it went when I get back Sunday night. Take care and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
P.S. I may post little snippets on the Confessions of a Fat Girl Facebook site over the weekend, so check it out, become a fan. I would love to have you!
