After a great day, ended up taking the day off... crazy

Monday, February 04, 2013

Too crazy, yesterday started off so well with 5 good miles.

Then... I had suggested that we grab lunch out or something and that was it. My man wanted to take the day off. We went to an early lunch. I had a turkey ruben but also some pasta salad. I was a bit stressed, thinking I need to get back to take another course and do other chores.

My man was not ready to go home so we went to Wind Wings. A beer there. I start stressing then realize...

emoticon You need to relax and enjoy. You have not had a beer/wine in weeks and it is important for you to relax and spend some time with your man. Yes, relax and try to enjoy your time together.

He ordered boneless wings. I had 2 or 3 tops. I reminded myself... not earth shattering.

We had another drink later and then home. I relaxed and watch ...

It is a funny move we both enjoy. Crazy, I had to remind myself that it was ok to relax. I love watching movies and we so rarely do so together.

I think...

I needed some down time. I needed to go into the week ready to hit it hard again, not feeling deprived from sitting at a computer all weekend.

I will make it a good week.

    I just caught up on your blogs. I didn't get on spark hardly at all over the weekend. Was too busy feeling sorry for myself in between times of praying & turning over my son to God. I did get in some exercise but not much and I ate and ate and ate. Everything that gives me emotional comfort. Ugh! I wish I could stop going back to that way of dealing with stuff but sadly I do.

    What a pain being at the denist for 2 hours and really not getting anywhere. Geez. That would have frustrated me to no end. I sure hope you can last the 6 months until your insurance allows for more intervention.

    I am so glad you took a break and had a relaxing day. You deserve it! Plus your man needs that relaxing time with you!

    I know it's hard to allow a R&R day when your goals are in sight, but it sounds like you did a pretty great job :) Hope it gave you a little motivation to get this week off to a great start! Happy February.
