It's Monday and I don't get the day off like a lot of folks, but that is okay! I was actually looking forward to coming back to work today! With a very busy weekend with basketball games and house guests, it was hard to stay on track...but I did! My step-daughter came to visit with my granddaughter and she brought me a belated Valentine's Day gift of flowers, a teddy bear, and a big box of chocolates! I cracked open the box of chocolates and shared them with everyone and didn't eat a single piece. She didn't know I was back on spark and trying to get healthy again.
Then last night, she wanted to take us all out for dinner, to the Spaghetti Factory, which is one of my favorite restaurants. Pasta, bread, butter, and blue cheese dressing...oh my! I declined because I had to pick my youngest daughter and her friend up from the movies, and honestly, I'm not sure if I'm ready for a test like that. All the girls, except for my youngest, had some sister bonding time when they went.
I'm going to miss my granddaughter something fierce. I wish she was closer so I could see her more often, but I have to say, I will be glad to get back into my usual routine, sleep pattern, eating pattern, etc. I'm such a creature of habit. I think that's one of the reasons it took me so long to adjust to being on Spark again, measuring, tracking, etc. But once I got into the swing of it, not doing it really bugs me now. I do not like missing a beat. It helps that I have this Fitbit. It keeps me focused on those numbers. I love it! I'm seriously thinking about buying the bracelet version when it comes out. I don't like taking mine off.
Now, if I can just get my steps in today before the rain hits, I will be good to go. If I do have to go out in the rain, I will, and thank you CBAILEYC for the trash bag suggestion....I will do that!
Happy Monday everyone!!
