Checking In

Tuesday, March 26, 2013

I just got back from Florida and while it was overall a good trip, I am so glad to be home. I went to visit my older brother and his family, and they are really struggling financially. And the stress is really showing on him, his wife and their two little kids. My heart is just breaking for them. I do what I can to help but itís tough. I am saying a prayer that things get better.

I managed to get my workouts in and only went over calories one day Ė Mexican and margaritas, it was so worth it! My sister-in-law is really a sweetheart, and even with all they are going through, she works really hard on staying in shape. She was showing me her belly-dancing DVD and telling me that for awhile she had been totally obsessed with it and was in even better shape than she is now - which is saying a lot!

So, back now and very focused on working even harder to lose at least 10 pounds before summer. I can do it if I can continue losing a pound a week like Iíve been doing. Iíve been doing much better staying on track with my goals this month. Although I did have a few more nights drinking than I had planned to, but thatís because I forgot about this little vacation. Not planning to drink this week, and hopefully will get in an extra workout too.

The other thing Iím proud of is that Iíve been successful in giving up sweets for almost 40 days now. Maybe Iíll do it again.

At work, I had an interview for the job Iím applying for which I thought went really well. I was totally excited about it and then my boss went on travel and then on vacation and the whole thing ground to a halt. I am practicing being Zen.

So, off to bed soon. Looking forward to yoga tomorrow evening. Wishing everyone strength in your journeys!
