Already a Bad Start
So I have decided that I need to lose one more clothing size before returning to France for August. That way I can eat all of the croissant, pain au chocolat, tarte de citron and profiteroles that I want. If I am in Le Beausset, I will visit my old friend Isabelle, who works at the Boulangerie. Boy do I miss Isa. So losing weight... Part of the master plan of losing weight is (1) eating less, (2) cutting the grass, when it needs it, which I have done the last 2 weekends and (3) swimming 2 nights a week and sometimes on the weekend. I did swim Sunday and Monday for about 1km. But Sunday and Monday were still part of last weekend, so they obviously don't count. I had potential nights to go. Well Tuesday A had to work late. So not my fault. Wednesday, I had to work late followed by being stuck in traffic. Thursday = thunder storm. However on a small happy note, I did jog in my sandals to the parking garage because of the rain. Good thing that I was clairvoyant and wore my 'nipples don't show through bra' or else it would have been one interesting wet t-shirt contest in the parking garage. Well maybe I didn't get that wet, but I was pretty wet. Well, anyway, the pool certainly closed down the minute the lightening hit the Maryland skies... So that only leave tomorrow night. So I could make up by swimming 2 km or 2 miles tomorrow night. Or I have failed in my first week on my new exercise regiment. I am not even sure if the grass will need to be cut this weekend in addition A is working too this weekend and so availability for grass cutting the swimming goes way down. I am so sad that I might only get to see Isa every other day while in Le Beausset... On a super happy note, I did find new motivation in oing lap swimming and it's music. For Xmas, I asked for a device that would allow my to use my iPod to listen to music while swimming. A few months ago, A got it for me (having a deadline for a present, like Xmas, is really had on A, eventually he gets around to it...) this device and I was able to try it out and it works great. If I didn't feel guilty about leaving A in the baby pool I could have swam another 1km....
