Today is my last day of work until August 27th. I am so excited to have a nice long vacation coming up. It's also the last day that I will be in my 40's. I'm not excited about having a big birthday tomorrow. Everyone wants to celebrate with me, but I'm not the birthday celebrating kind, at least not for myself. I love to celebrate other people's birthdays, but don't like to have the attention on myself.
154 hours (6 days 10 hours) until our cruise ship sails. 5 days until we get on the plane and head west.
Today will be a busy day at work as I get ready for my vacation. I don't think I've ever taken off 17 days in a row! Today is also my WI day at Weight Watchers. I am excited to weigh in this week, as I have done well with food, journalling and everything else I am supposed to do on this life journey. All in all it's been a good week for me, I've been good to myself. I've treated myself well, (although it's been busy and stressful), but I have held strong and focused. I am proud of the choices that I made this week, (even the one that had me eating 19 points of ice cream one day, that's 6 mini nutty buddies -- after having a biopsy -- done a little bit of stress????), and even though I won't be weighing in for 2 weeks after today, I will continue to stay focused and honest with myself about what I am eating, drinking and the exercise I am doing. - Note to self - take paper journal on cruise along with ww booklet so I can journal on the cruise as ww online and sparkpeople journalling will not be available....
Ah back to reality and now....food for today has been journalled, and although I usually go overboard on Thursdays since it's WI day, I am staying strong today. Tomorrow will be a splurge day complete with cake so I need to stay true to myself today.
Time to do some exercise before work.
