Of course, today started off EARLY since the kids were so excited they were in bed at 9:00 last night so Santa would come! At about 3:50 a.m. my middle child (older son) woke up to use the bathroom and then I heard the stair creak like he was going downstairs. The puppy started barking and busted him so he ran back to his room and hid under the blankets. Hee hee!
Fast forward to 5:30 a.m. when my alarm went off and I decided I was still too sore from Friday's workout to do Yoga so I turned it off. Then my youngest (son) came into our room asking to sleep on the floor (we don't let them in the bed anymore) and my husband said yes. Of course then he couldn't stop talking! Then the cat started walking across my chest so I would feed her and I heard my son asking my husband when we could get up. Ken said, "when Mom gets up," and then I had to pee so I said we should get up anyway since I was then awake.
We opened presents and I got a Bodybugg! So excited to start using it! It's charging next to me right now as I'm trying to keep my eyes open while I wait for it to be charged so I can use it. Got a pair of sweats, pair of pajama pants and a CD from the kids. Then went to the in-laws for brunch and more presents. I had a smoothie before we went so i wouldn't be starving and ate some but not a whole ton. Of course went over my calories for the day but that's okay. It actually wasn't that bad since we didn't eat lunch and ate dinner at 6:00 p.m. with very minimal snacking in between.
My husband's sister-in-law (his brother's 2nd wife) was actually NICE to me. We had a nice conversation and she wasn't stuck up or anything like she usually is. She actually COMPLIMENTED me on my weight loss and told me I look great. She asked how much I had lost and when I told her 40 pounds, she said, "only 40?" She thought it had been more! WOO HOO! It felt AWESOME! I was surprised and happy we could be civil and actually very nice to each other today. It made the day so much more bearable.
After presents, Ken and I went to go get my Mom. In case you don't know, she has MS and is in a wheelchair so it's hard to get her places since we don't own a lift van. We were able to rent one for the weekend, however, so it was nice to go get her and have her spend the afternoon and evening with us since she's usually by herself on Christmas and we celebrate with her on a different day.
The kids went to bed without argument tonight and now we're watching the Packer game (late) and I'm going to bed soon. Tomorrow I have another appointment with my trainer so we'll see what I can do since I'm STILL sore from Friday's workout. My ABS are killing me! It feels good though.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day today!
