Weekend morning are my favorite. Today is extra special because today is the 17th anniversary of the first date I had with my husband. Mike got up early with the girls (what a gift!) and I slept in until 9. This is huge for me, I usually get up at 6. When I got up, Mike had already made the coffee and I am enjoying a second cup as I type this. It is supposed to rain today so we will likely spend most of the day inside. I have to help the kids with their valentines for school and help the oldest with her spelling words. I will go to yoga at 3 and then Mike and I will have a lovely dinner at a local restaurant. It is a simple and lovely day.
I have been thinking a lot about non-scale victories lately. I have been posting them here and there on the boards, but here are a few of mine:
+ I fit into size 16 which means I can wear the clothes that have been packed away in a bin in my basement for the last few years. I liberated one of my favorite (old) outfits and wore it last week. I still haven't unpacked the bin as I don't know what to do with the clothes currently residing in my closet. Some of them are starting to feel big on me, but not falling off yet.
+ I can cross my legs comfortably and love to sit with legs crossed. I really missed sitting this way.
+ I took 2:15 off my 5k time!
+ I don't lead with my stomach anymore.
+ The last time I traveled on an airplane (a couple of weeks ago) I fit comfortably into the seat. I am not worried about my upcoming trips.
+ My rings are loose on my fingers. I have changed the fingers I wear them so they won't fall off. I am worried about my wedding ring falling off.
Enjoy your Sunday, SP!
