Today I slept in late, had nice leisurely breakfast, messed w/my kitties and just basically kicked back. Called friend of mine who's in the hospital recovering from female surgery on Thursday to try to make her laugh :-).
Poured myself a cup of coffee w/bailey's Irish cream, and sitting down to Spark for a while, before heading out for services & fellow-shipping.
No scale today -cuz just seemed like too stressful of a thing to do.

After the weigh in yesterday at 268# I was pretty bummed. I tried to meditate about it a bit, but hubby was home and asking for help on the computer; then remembered I had an 11am & 2pm appointment -so I had to stop sparking and get on w/the day.
So yesterday: I got a yoga session in, my bible study & prayer in, had vegie soup for lunch; home made chili-con-carne for dinner; and then 2 sweet oranges for desert and an evening snack. Was able to have some 'quality time' w/mom; then on the phone catching up w/dear sweet friend, then before I knew it it was midnight. However, when I began to unwind from the day I had parked myself in front of the TV and ended up watching a movie, eating 4 fig newtons, and not actually getting my patootie in bed until after 3am. Not my best (but not my worst either).
So today: I get up to face the music, got on the scale and it says 265#???? Hmmmm, how can a body loose 3# in a 24 hour period, especially when it stayed up late watching and eating fig newtons. I guess I was very bloated yesterday, LOL :-)
Despite the yukky weather, today ended up being a pretty good day. I got my prayer & bible study in; got 20 minutes of yoga & 20 minutes of strength training done. My big appointment today was to go to a friends retirement luncheon, and then get back to household priorities. Happy that I logged on to Spark for another day in a row, and tracked exercise & food from yesterday and today. Now here I sit finishing up the day w/this blog and trying to decide if I'll get on the scale again in the morning.
