What a day!

I had a fantastic day at the spa today. I wasn't TOO busy, where I feel like I need to be on life support when the day is done, but the four people I did massage were EXCELLENT tippers, and that makes a huge difference. If every person I massaged tipped me the way my clients did today, I'd have no financial worries at all. But for every generous client, I get two or three skinflints. Such is life in Las Vegas!

After work, I picked Silver up and we went to WalMart to get various groceries. She's suddenly interested in learning how to cook (less than a month before she goes off to college, where she'll NEVER have to cook), so we picked up some stuff for her to make shrimp in butter/ginger/cilantro sauce. We'll see how that goes...

I also had to buy some exercise pants. Workout clothes and undies are the only items I refuse to buy at the thrift store. I mean, I have to draw the line somewhere, right?

I got teary-eyed in the fitting room, because I couldn't believe I had to buy the smallest size pants available, size 4-6. I feel like the incredible shrinking woman!

Now, there's no way in hell I could fit into size four jeans, for example (yet!), but these pants are slightly stretchy and fit just fine. Now I can work out in style (or at least without my pants bagging everywhere!) Let's see how long I can wear these...;)

UPDATE:
Forgot to mention something. There was a family with a very young toddler in the WalMart while Silver and I were there. It was quite disconcerting to keep hearing things like, "NO! NO, Christina, don't touch!"; "Go with Grandpa, Christina."; "Walk, Christina...I'm NOT going to carry you. Yes, you CAN walk."
My head kept whipping around every time I heard my name. *LOL*!

THAT'S pretty funny! I think I'd react in the same way...

And, once again: Good On Ya for the downsizing. (You could take that comment several different ways, all good. :D)

It WAS funny, Buck. And thank you. I think I need to stop talking about my weight loss so much, though...I'm starting to bore myself, I can only imagine how boring it is for everyone else! ;)

Buck took the words right out my mouth, err, keyboard...

No, no, no! don't stop talking about it! Seriously - I need the motivation1 And it's FAB that you're down to such a wee size.
Oh, I spent the day in an aromatherapy class where "Rosemary" was brought up quite a bit. Did you know I can be massaged on cellulite? I'm off to put some me on me. I need it!

Julie said...

i'm with Roismhaire ... don't stop letting us know how you're going with the weight loss ... i might be feeling jealous - not definitely not bored :)

Christina LMT said...

Thanks, B.R.!

Roismhaire, I LOVE rosemary...and roses, and lavender, and peppermint, and...:)

Thanks to both you and Julie for the kind words, I guess I'll keep you posted when something momentous occurs. Regarding weight-loss, I mean! Because when anything else momentous occurs, of COURSE I blog about it!

Love the little Walmart story. Having a nickname of "Sully", in a place as heavily Irish as Boston, I've had more than my share of head-whipping-around moments :-)

Christina LMT said...

Oy, Sully!
I can only imagine...:)
