This morning I got off to a great start! Dad, David & I headed to Williams Fresh Cafe at Hamilton Harbour for breakfast. My car was already loaded up and ready with pretty much a full tank of gas. We had an excellent meal right at one of their many windows and it was very relaxing. We said our goodbyes and I headed off with my trusty GPS towards Windsor. Very little traffic (a few OPP cars at the side of the road), I stopped before Windsor to have a bite to eat from my stash of diet food and was all checked in at the iSleep Inn Motel before 1 p.m. Showered and headed for the pool. Now I haven’t been swimming for a few years and it was a bit of a shock for someone who thought her fitness campaign was coming along so well. I managed to do 12 laps (not a lot) but had to stop after every 2nd one as I was out of puff! Got the 12 in though and hopefully I will do better next time. It impresses upon me that I really have to get serious about exercising regularly besides just walking and T’ai Chi! Anyway, I won’t have to swim on my dig in Colorado and swimming on Easter Island will be recreational and I have a few months before I get there. So this will be my next focus in my health & happiness plan.
Good news: the iSleep has an iDine and I get a complimentary breakfast.
Bad news: Their machine doesn’t take American Express so no airmiles.
Good news: I got to listen to Disc 1 of my Judy Garland albums and she does a fabulous rendition of “Chicago”, so I’ll be listening to that as I drive in tomorrow wearing my Alia T-shirt with all the landmarks of Chicago on it! 5 1/2 hour trip tomorrow to Oak Park and hope to be there early afternoon. Stay tuned as I continue on the road!
