Yesterday I was in a Strictly bubble - which is why I didn't post. I drove to Nottingham to watch the Strictly Come Dancing live tour and, wow! From the opening routine of Top Hat to the finishing dance routine from La La Land - the whole afternoon was simply a dazzling delight of dancing, live music and good humour. I met up with Trisha at the Saltbox restaurant -which she had booked - just as well - it was right outside the arena and so a popular destination. I tried to be SW friendly and had scoured the menu online - but then they changed it and it threw me. In the end I opted for grilled sea bass, new potatoes and green beans - asking for no butter and no sauce. Didn't I do well?
When we made our way to our seats (look how central they were - it was a fabulous view) I remembered that there was a cautionary note when I booked them - the seats were not for people who suffered from vertigo or had issues climbing stars. Imagine my delight when I climbed the equivalent of two flights of stairs with ease and could then hold a conversation without being out of breath - what a result!
I arrived home around 8:30pm - having taken a SW friendly box of food for tea - and went to bed with both happy memories and pride on how I had managed the eating aspects of the day!
Today was therefore a catch up day - popping into Tesco's before picking up the dogs from Mum and Dad's. Dad seems to have become the dog whisperer in the last few days - apparently Daisy sits on his knee when he watches the tv and then slides in between him and the arm of the chair - before finally falling asleep. Bless
So - what's the brave new world? Well, Jean and I have decided to start a Pilates class after half term and so I needed some trainers. I went in a sports shop and, after some advice, came out with these pair of Reeboks. Not only was there a strange world of sporting equipment and accessories but there were items in the shop that I had never seen before - such as a protein mars bar - reduced in price to an astonishing £2.50. Yes you read that right - I even questioned the assistant - it was REDUCED to £2.50!!
I also got a card from my SW consultant - congratulating me on being awarded the highest wight loss award on Monday from all of her groups. This has been a good couple of days!
