My party was a lot of fun. It is the tradition of my friends at work to write a poem for someone leaving. My friend Erika is quiet the poet when she does them. It was dead on and really appreciated. I will always remember and treasure it. I went way, way, way over on all my calories, fats, carbs, just about everything but protein. It was the only thing that was in correct range. I know I would though. I got up this morning and did my exercises. I am moving a little slow so I only did 40 minutes on the Life Cycle. I have some errands to run and I may go for a walk or ride some more later to make up the difference. All in all it was a great night and I enjoyed everyone who came. I may not miss ABQ all that much once I am gone but I have some amazing friends here and I will miss them. At least with email, Facebook, and all the other tech ways to keep up with people I will be able to keep my firends here more easily than ever before. I am going to really behave this week to make up for last night. I am back on track just like I planned.
Hello Friday. I thought you would never get here. Tonight is my going away party and I am going to be off the wagon so to speak. I am going to try to make some smart choices but my favorite bread pudding is coming so I know it will be over on fat, carbs and calories. Knowing that going in makes it an educated recoverable choice. That is the main difference between the old me and the now me. It isn't the end of anything just a fun event in my life that I will enjoy and carry on from. It is a pretty liberating thought actually!!
Well I slept a little better last night but it is still a ways from being back to normal. Hopefully by the weekend I will be back in the sleep of things. It is a comfy mattress just really different from what I am used to. They said at the store it usually takes about three weeks to fully adjust sometimes longer. I am still doing well with my exercise. I am allowing little treats here and there though (not too much) just to try to figure out the maintaining part. So far so good. My going away party is Friday night so I am trying to be a little strict now so I can have some party things without wrecking my momentum. This is the part that I am trying to learn so I can be a normal thin person eater at some point. We shall see. As always I am very much a work in progress!!
Okay...this mattress is really different from a regular mattress. It looks great and once I got the linens on it and the bed made looks even better. I didn't sleep all that well. I'm not sure if it is just an adjustment period or if I am just not sleeping all that well right now. I didn't sleep well night before last and that was on the old mattress. Who knows. I am sure it will be better for me that the old one with the hills and valleys. I can't wait until the weekend to try on a sleep late day. I will have had 4 nights on it and hopefully I will be able to sleep late on Saturday and/or Sunday. I should be tired enough by then to get a good night in. I am curious to see what my hubby thinks when he gets back on Saturday or Sunday.
This is pretty late from me. I had a really busy day at work and didn't get time to do it. I did go to lunch with friends so is when I usually do it. It was nice to get out of the office. I had my new mattress delivered at 6pm. I am washing the linens currently and will have a new mattress and box spring with clean linens. I love that. It is a Tempur-pedic. I hope I sleep well tonight. The old one was getting very uncomfortable. I wanted to get it here before the weekend. My husband is coming back on Saturday or Sunday from LA and his new job. We get a 90 day trial and with him gone most of the time I figured this weekend would be a good time for him to sleep on it at least a couple nights. I am kind of looking forward to going to bed to check it out!!
