I managed to get through the day yesterday. I ate well. I walked around the block a couple of times but I wouldn’t really call my efforts warrior-like. I got home, went for a walk, fixed dinner and collapsed in front of the TV where I remained from around 8:00 to 11:00 and then I limped off to bed. Still, although it wasn’t what I would call a perfect day, it was a good day. I’ll try to do the same today. A couple of things to celebrate: I took more than half of a huge carrot cake to work yesterday and foisted it off on anyone who would take the bait. I knew I’d eat some if I left it here. Also passed on the macaroni and cheese and garlic bread that DH added to my nice healthy dinner menu.
Taking to heart some of the comments left yesterday (Thank you, Chicklets!), I’m going to start tackling some of these problems. I’m taking on two of them today. One: get a jump on dinner so I’m not left to the mercy of the men. Two: plan something/anything that will keep me from being hypnotized by the TV this evening.
I have to be at work almost an hour early this morning because Andrew has a National Honor Society meeting. Their advisor can only meet before school and I agreed to be a sponsor so I have to be there as well. I figured I might as well since I do so much for Steven with ROTC and I have to go in early anyway to take Andrew. So…I have to hit the shower running this morning.
8:00 – Quick update — I laid out some sirloin beef before I left for work so we can have Thai Grilled Beef with string beans for dinner. I dug around in the freezer and found a Lean Cuisine for lunch and then ran out the door and left it sitting on the table. Just finished digging around in my closet and found an old box of instant oatmeal. Not what I planned for lunch but, at least, I have a plan now and won’t be tempted to eat something I shouldn’t. I’m thinking of things to keep me busy this afternoon and I’ve decided to run by Sistah Pam’s for a few minutes and go to the fabric shop that’s down the road from her. I keep trying to find an inexpensive piece of fabric that’s black with a small gold accent so I can make the comforter for the cabin. Hey! It beats sitting around the house watching TV.
