No pain, no gain
I have to admit that yesterday what I wanted to do was go home, make a cup of coffee and park it on the end of the couch. But what I did was wrestle Pearl into her halter, found a hat, scarf and gloves and off to the river we went for a 2 hour walk. When the weather first starts getting cold is the hardest time for me to get motivated - when it's really winter I still walk alot and spend a great deal of time outdoors, but this weather - arrgh! - just makes me want to sit and watch tv. But given how hard it's been for me to lose this weight I don't want to start backsliding now so I make myself. Pearl of course is always up for it. We aren't doing a whole lot this weekend, I have some paperwork to catch up and phone calls, I have one visit for tomorrow and I'm on call so I can't stray too far from the house. Adam called me yesterday morning, it was so nice to hear his voice. He's still on land at the moment - the Gary went out a few weeks ago and won't be back for a few more, so he's enjoying himself. He might be coming home in December which I would love - we haven't seen him for two years. But he's doing fine for now. And no - he still hasn't gotten any birthday gifts, he thinks thier probably on the ship.
