, I actually envy you having a good day yesterday...
My Sundays seem to be a binge-fest lately.
It didn't help that DH went to bed early with a stomachache (not sure from what?) so all I did was think, feel sad, and eat. Thank God there was only so much in the house!
At least that part of the plan worked! I know I'm falling into the trap of eating too many carbs and then giving in to the cravings that happen as a result. This week needs to be all about carb vigilance and finding healthier outlets for my emotions! Exercise is a great one, but I'll actually be getting one less workout this week. It's for a great reason, though!
: I'm going to meet CottagebytheSea for lunch and shopping! I'm excited to meet her in person after so many years of 3FC friendship!
, it's a good reality check, isn't it? Plus, it's a good reminder that the older we get, the harder it is to get the weight back off. I've read so many stories about people who yo-yo or unhealthily dieted regularly in their younger years and really paid for it with their health in their older years. Let's commit to doing this right and doing it for the LAST time, eh?
Don't stress about how you look at the gym...people are probably so busy looking at your arms that they don't notice your torso, or think you're wearing bulky clothes and must be as skinny as your limbs all over!
Plus, it's an incentive to bulk up your arm and leg muscles, which will help boost your metabolism, too!
, I hear you about sticking with the plan...and watering! Spent a while watering in our yard yesterday...it's been pretty darn hot! Yet I still have mildew issues with my squash. Hmmph!
I'm so excited for your trip...I know you'll have a blast!!!
Good for you on changes, Scully
Remember, slow loss means you'll keep it off, and your skin will have time to tighten up! Trust me, that means a lot!!! I've compared my skin with friends who've had gastric bypass and lost super-speedy-quick and trust me, you don't want to lose fast!
I don't know if it helps, but you're not the only one who finds over-40 means weight issues...and slow loss.
, good luck with the house hunting!!!
Let us know how it goes!
, sending lots of 'get to the gym today' vibes your way, hon!
: You are so right, 4th graders are so grown up! Parents used to come to me when I was teaching 4th grade and say, "What did you do to my kid! They're (using hair gell/using deoderant/won't let me help them with______/etc.)!"
It's just part of that age...but it seems so dramatic that it freaks parents out! Your Brian sounds so wonderful and I know he's already doing you proud. You're a great mom, Barb!
, I heard about that organic delivery thing in my Cooking Light a month or so ago...but it's not available here in the boonies.
What fun for you, though! Glad you got sleep! Bet the gym will help perk you up further. It's counter-intuitive, but it's such an energy boost!
Have a great day, chickies! I'm off to grocery shopping and dinner planning...then tonight we're putting the final coat of paint on our bathroom!!! That means we'll basically be done with our work in fixing the bathroom. We'll have floors put in next week and then we can install the new toilet and the towel racks, shower rod, etc....but that's easy-peasy compared to putting in new walls, a new shower, etc, that we did previously. We started this project in March and have been using our downstairs shower since and haven't had a toilet upstairs in two weeks. It really s**cks to have to climb downstairs over baby gates to use the toilet in the middle of the night!
I can't wait to be done!!!
