Eileen – December 20, 2011 – Tuesday
Exercise Today: … 3 hours shopping-walking
Starting Weight 12/13/11: 299.8     Last Weigh-In: 298.2   Today: 299.8
Change Yesterday: + 1.6   Total Progress: – 0.0

I know I haven’t been counting, but I also haven’t been binging, either.  Yes, I have had some chocolate and a couple Christmas cookies, but I’ve been keeping my meals small and reasonable, only eating until I’m satisfied and never venturing into “full.”  I was actually excited, getting on the scale this morning, because I was absolutely sure I was going to see a drop in weight… and instead I saw the 1.6 lbs I’d lost come right back!!  It’s okay, though, I’m still way swollen and sore from my geocaching adventure (I’m totally not used to climbing anything more strenuous than a staircase!!).

Hubby and I went shopping today, we had a couple errands to run as well, so we were pretty much on-the-go all day long.  I am officially on vacation from work now, even though I’m not on my way to Wisconsin as originally planned, so we are preparing for a slightly different trip now.  We finally decided where we are going (it’s still here in Florida but about 3 hours away) and we’re psyched about it.  We’re leaving Christmas Eve night right after the celebration at my brother’s house and then we’ll be back home on the 29th.  We’re taking only our daughter with us, and so that will be very different, we haven’t spent much time with just her and so I’m hoping it will be special and memorable.  A couple years ago I would not have said it would be “special,” I probably would have said it would be unpleasant at best, but she’s grown up a lot since then.  Now we’re all looking forward to it, and that’s a nice change.  Amazing, the difference between age 18 and age 21.

Tonight I have to stay awake pretty much all night.  My son’s flight leaves at 5:15 am and I am taking him to the airport, which is about forty-five minutes away, so we’ll be leaving at about 3:00 am.  That will have him there about a hour-and-a-half before his flight leaves, and that should be plenty of time at that time of day.  It’s so exciting, his first time flying!!  I’m going to get him and his luggage checked in, and then he’s on his own, since I can’t go past the security checkpoint without a ticket.  Remember the good old days when you could go right to the gate?

So I’ll probably get back home about the same time he takes off – and then I’ll sleep from 5am to 10am.  We have a full day of stuff planned tomorrow (stuff meaning work) so I can’t sleep the day away, though I’ll probably want to, after staying up all night!!

    Considering how little I have eaten over the holidays, I’m surprised to see a gain as well, oh well, the holidays are almost over! 🙂
