I set some new goals for myself this week, and I think I did well with them. I got lots of school work done, I limited my sweets, and I didn't miss a workout. Yippee! Looks like I'll be getting those new headphones this weekend.
This morning I felt super productive. I usually spend too much time sitting at the computer, looking at random stuff, but this morning I felt inspired to get some to-dos crossed off my list. I have the bath mat in the washer right now - it needed a good washing and today I decided to just take care of it this morning. Honey will have a nice clean mat when he wakes up.
Instead of throwing together a PB&J (although I love those), I made some tuna for my sandwich. I already had PB for breakfast, and I want to keep that fat in check. Tuna will be some great protein for me, anyway.
I filled up the dishwasher - cleaned up my breakfast stuff *now* instead of waiting until I got home. I love a clean counter.
Tonight I am going shopping and to dinner with my best bud, who I haven't seen in a while. I have a shirt to return, and I'm going to look for some new pants. Tonight is going to be an experiment with dinner; I plan on finding something not *too* horrible from the menu, but I'm not going to go crazy trying to find the lowest calorie thing out there. Most times I try to do that, I end up disappointed. Who says I have to eat the whole thing? I can even ask for no cheese or sauce on the side. Tonight I am going to *enjoy* my dinner.
It's rainy, bleh, but it's Friday. I think the Friday thing outweighs the rainy thing.
After school I'm going to the gym for a little run (12 minutes with no pain - here I come!). When I talked to my friend last night about our plans, the words "well I am going to the gym for a little bit after school so I can be at your house at 6:15ish" just rolled out of my mouth. I know it's been a while, but this whole commitment to the gym thing still amazes me. When I meet my good friend for coffee after school, he knows that I have to go to my Yoga class at the gym and I can't stay too long. I even scheduled my first workout with my trainer for an evening *after* a class! I am really excited to be working with her to reach my goals.
Sometimes I get really bummed because my honey works nights (as a chef), but actually, this allows me to take nights for myself; I don't feel guilty for spending all night at the gym. If I want to be there for three hours, then I can be.
Drink at least 4 Siggs of water
Have a good time at dinner and shopping and not let the menu decision become my whole evening
Give someone a compliment
