When I said this week was going to be busy I donít think I realized just how busy it was going to be. And how much more could pop up and that I could make room for. Thankfully I was prepared but dang.
Last night I went to my parents to do some laundry and eat dinner with them. They are both sick and hopefully from being there I donít pick anything up. YuckÖI donít want it. But my mom is on antibiotics and my dad is on day two or so of his cold or whatever it is so hopefully they arenít terribly contagious. While there my brother called, who is also sick and got the twins sick, and my niece Elin (one of the twins that is a month and a half old) is in the hospital. They think she has RSV, so send lots of good thoughts and prayers her way. Speaking of babies, my good friendsí had their baby this morning. Little girl and she is pretty adorable. Iím so excited for them. In the food department it was pretty good. I successfully stayed away from the Girl Scout cookies in the break room and declined cheese cake at my parents. Score! I didnít have much control over dinner since it was at their house but it was a baked potato and homemade chili so it wasnít so bad. I put minimal butter, sour cream and cheese on it so I think over all I did well. I was hungry when I got home so I ate some crackers but portioned them out and stopped when I was done. Iím pretty proud of myself.
Today was my sleep in day which was very nice. I didnít get home from my parents until 9:30pm and had stuff to do so didnít get to bed until later then usual. Plus I was worried about Elin and had some stuff on my mind so I was having a hard time getting to sleep. I was just thinking that maybe I would go to the hospital to see my brother and Elin but they havenít even been cleared to go see her so I probably shouldnít go. I told him if he needs anything Iím here so hopefully if there is anything I can do heíll let me know. So tonight will be a workout after class. Then off to my store run. I weighed in this morning to see where I was and Iím at the same as when I weighed in two weeks ago. Iíll take it since I havenít been behaving in the food department as I should. Plus I think it gives me the incentive to be good this weekend since I have done so well this week overall and Iím not up and hopefully can keep it that way.
Friday I have my date with my friend and her 5 year old which will be loads of fun. I will have to get up early to get my workout in that day since I have plans with them for dinner and wonít have time after work. It will have to be an early night because I have to get up early for my volunteer orientation on Saturday. Then after that I have to go spend some time with a friend of mine whose dog died and she doesnít want to be alone while her husband is gone for the afternoon. I feel so bad for her. Hopefully I will be able to fit in a workout before I go to the birthday party for my friend that evening. Sunday still planning on going to my parents to finish laundry but I wonder if that trip will turn into going to see my brother. Weíll see how it shapes up I suppose.
So now I just have to decide what workout to do tonight. I think a run is out of the question because it is cold and windy and Iíd rather not deal with that. Looks like Iíll be diving into the DVD collection. Hope everyone has a great Thursday
