So I was lamenting with my SP friend Useandlose about weight gain this week. Perhaps I just wasn't ready for 20 pounds? Perhaps I needed to assess my commitment? I just know it sucks and I will have to work hared/smarter to make this work.
At any rate, I had a bit of a revelation while blogging on her page. In a non-hypothetical way, I hate bumps in the road. They damage my car. But my kid loves them. She says WEE every time we hit one and sometimes tells me to "do it again." Of course I don't want to keep hitting bumps on my weight loss journey, but maybe I can have fun with them any way. I challenged my dear friend to have FUN today. To do things kids do for exercise today. You know things like: play tag (you're it!), touched you last (can you see starting that at the office?), running backwards, skipping, hop scotch, jump rope, my favorite=Hula Hooping, crazy dancing, rolling on the floor! Can you think of any more? Let's have an all out, kid-like, fun kinda day! Bumps can be fun. Are you with me?

I had a BLAST this weekend. Lots of fun, friends, and food. Unfortunately, very little activity to go with that folly. It really was fun to be a little careless. I don't think I was waaaaay off the mark, but I won't be too surprised to see a couple pounds that I thought were gone, again. I have told myself repeatedly not to beat myself up over it. But, I am a bit disappointed in myself. I am going to have to work really hard this season to make my dreams come true. I am going to have to be very focused. I am going to have to be strong and conscientious. I am going to have to find joy and fulfillment somewhere other than the table/fridge/pantry. It just seems too easy to go back to my old ways. It's easy to do nothing and be apathetic. It takes so much more effort to care about myself and be responsible for my actions. It's just so easy to blame everything around me. It's so hard, some days, to just do the right thing.

So, I went out last night with some girlfriends and we drank wine and enjoyed Spanish Tapas together. And, as we all know, food shared=no calories. Right? Then I was giddy with excitement today over some unexpected blessings coming my way, and went to lunch with a friend and ate (shared appetizer) and enjoyed a fine adult beverage. I also got my hair done this morning and it didn't cost me a cent! (love gift certificates and a generous hair dresser). So anyway--the calories STOP here! Back in the plan now! Gonna go exercise. Have a GREAT weekend!
I almost forgot--I found some jeans that fit that said size 12 on the tag! (did not buy because they were not the dark wash I was looking for. But still, Yippee! And I tried on some size L dresses that were fabulous!)
I am BELIEVING!!!

Okay, I'm finally over the utter humiliation of what happened this fine day a couple of weeks ago.
I'm a charitable person. I give when I can. Am-Vets called me and asked if I had anything to donate. I thought and said "why yes I do". They arrange for a pick up day and all I have to do is bag up the items and place them on my porch. Wa Bam, easy peesy. They even call to remind you the day before. When I got my reminder call I thought, "Oh geeze, I better get those clothes bagged up." Well, I go about my day. I wake up the next day, donation pick up day, and go about my normal day. We play, have a snack, play, have some lunch, have story time, then naps. As I'm coming up from putting the kids down for nap, I hear the truck pulling away. I immediately realize my pho-pa and frantically run to the door. My heart races as I look down to see that they did not mistakenly take the bag of poopie diapers I have waiting to go to the outside garbage can on my front porch.
Yep, that's right. I arranged for AmVets to pick up a bag of clothes and instead had a bag of poo-filled diapers awaiting them instead. Yea--that's how I roll. Do you think they'll ever call me again? You can not imagine my relief over the fact that they did not take the bag with them. I was so mortified. But now I can't help but giggle. I hope you got a laugh too!
