Today was the first Monday in probably a YEAR that I have stepped onto the scale and lost weight. Yep...I not only maintained this weekend; I conquered. That's even after eating out at O'Charley's on Saturday and surving the weekly Sunday dinner at the MIL's. The key to my success?? I got up early on Saturday morning and ran and Sunday, even though I was so tired and wanted to take an afternoon nap, I put on my running shoes and ran outside. It was a beautiful day! I took my 7 year old son with me and we cranked out 2 miles. Not bad and got some quality time in with the little one who would have otherwise been going stir crazy. He had a hard time keeping up...but with me constantly encouraging him, it helped me to stay motivated and gave him some goals to work on.
We closed our pool (and no tears from me). I had to finally come to the realization that summer was over. I hate that! I love love love summer. I should have been a teacher so that I could have my summers off...I would certainly relish every minute of it.
Anyway, yay for me! Yay for this weekend (even though Purdue got embarassed by Notre Dame).
