After a fantabulous night of sleep...well not really the puppy wouldn't leave the big dog alone...he wanted to snuggle...she not so much. But the baby is on night 4 of finally sleeping:) He's going to bed a little later than I would like, but I'll take it since he's sleeping through the night.
Puppy woke me at 6:15...not really what I had in mind for the weekend. But it proved to be very rewarding for me. I had been reading all the rewards of waking early on Zenhabits.net, but I haven't been actually keeping up with it. So, I decided why not it's only sleep I'm missing. And the peace and quiet of the morning was calling my name when everyone else was asleep. I took puppy outside and made some coffee. I sat on the couch and starting reading motivational stories on WW. I read about plateus and keeping motivation. I will admit this week was harder for me to stay on track. I guess the excitement was wearing off a bit...although I'm trying hard to see myself as the 125 lb. person I want to be. I imagine myself in shorts this summer...this hasn't happened in years. But I went over my points almost everyday. I have used all my weekly allowance as of last night and I still have 3days left in this week. But I have lots of activity points which I'd like to pretend are not there. It's almost the yucky time of the month and I am afraid that scale isn't going to budge this week or might even go up. So I needed to buckle down and stick to my points the next three days before weigh in.
After reading for a bit, I made myself an egg white omelet w/ spinach and shredded low fat string cheese, a piece of whole wheat toast w/ tsp. of all natural pnut butter and all-fruit, and one clementine.
Then I got all the kids ready and we headed to the gym. I did 20 minutes of a legs sesh and then off to Zumba. I guess I had a little more pep in my step b/c the instructor even commented that "someone had their coffee this morning". This made me smile and push harder.
After, we headed to Subway for lunch. Still the joy of eating out but so much healthier than a Big Mac. I skipped all condiments and chips...and I was so proud! I've never done that before...I love the feeling of being proud of myself:)
Then we headed off to baseball sign-ups for the boys. When we got home we ran the dogs around the backyard until the rain started. Now, baby is down for nap, the other boys are on the computer and playing with the pup, and I'm catching the end of a Lifetime movie.
Next up - Organizing the kitchen! I know you're jealous...that sounds so exciting right.?. But I know I will be thankful I did it. I can almost invision what it will look like. I think after I am done I'm going to reward myself my heading to the library or book store for a couple of books I've been wanting.
Have a good weekend bloggy friends.
