Everytime I get close to my goal weight, I sabotage myself. Why is that? Do I panic because this journey is about done? Maybe it is time to set new goals for once I reach my goal weight in the maintenance department.
Exercise at least 3 times a week for at least a half hour.
Make healthy choices in the food department and stay within my calorie range.
BTW, I met my goal of no soda. I haven't had any since vacation. I had a Canada Dry as my stomach wasn't feeling well. Other than that I haven't had any in a month. I haven't had caffeine since vacation either. Don't miss it! I guess I do get a little from chocolate when I crave it. But mainly I crave tart stuff in the sugar department. Sweet Tarts, smarties, Jelly Bellies (my archnemisis).
I'm going hiking tomorrow at Maxwell Falls with Lisielove. We met up for a hike last week at Lair of the Bear and had a good time. We are trading off who picks the park each week. Molly gets to come along too. She'll be so excited. She doesn't get out much. I know...bad mom. I have been walking her nightly starting Wed night. Of course she loves it. We don't go far as it gets dusk pretty quickly.
I keep waking up at 5:30am every night and can't go back to sleep. Why is that? I'm not stressed out. Strange. DH gripes that I've been tossing and turning alot at night. Last night I dreamt that I might be pregnant. I know I've been slightly off late about that as I missed my last period. But, when it was due, I was really stressed out and according to webmd stress can cause you to skip. I took an HPT to be sure and it came out negative. I took it at night so maybe that had something to do with it. Diluted from the 64 ounces of water I drink during the day. I'll have to try again to be sure in the morning. I meant to this morning but forgot. Funny thing is, this happened last time I got pregnant. I know I took the tests and they came out negative so I assumed I just skipped. I didn't realize I was indeed pregnant until the the 3rd month when I started feeling sick to my stomach. That lasted 1 day and the rest of the time I had heartburn. I wouldn't mine feeling the same way for #2! When I tested by the 3rd month, it was a resounding positive! Maybe it took that long for my hormones to kick into gear. Who knows?
Long post. I'm just spouting whatever comes to mind. Jake is in a new daycare today. I was worried he wouldn't do well, but dh dropped him off and seemed to feel good about the people and the place. So that was a relief. I'm sure Jake wasn't too happy when dad walked out the door without him! Our current daycare is run like a school so they have teachers' planning days off and every quarter a full week off along with all school holidays. So, I have to have a backup daycare for drop in on those teacher planning days. My workplace didn't have any backup options until July of this year. So, I'm taking advantage. The current daycare is a high quality facility so the days off are a minor inconvenience to me.
BTW, Jake's word for fire hydrant is "fire fly". LOL
