Day 67 Check In...
- 188 - 2 pounds up from yesterday, but I know it is just fluid, so no worries! I woke up with a puffy face and hands (could barely get my rings on). There is kind of a hidden NSV in this, though. Before I lost so much weight, I couldn't even tell when I was retaining water because I always looked puffy! I am getting much more in tune with my body now, so that is definitely an NSV! My only regret is that I won't have a loss to help my starfish team out this week.
Exercise - 10 minutes playing with my new "toys"! See below.
Calories - 1238
Fiber - 30
Freggies - 5 today!
Another good day today (other than the weight gain)! Busy day at work, then home to straighten up a little.
DH called from work to say that he wouldn't be able to take me out tonight because he had a late meeting.
Ok, let's see, how can we turn this around to a positive? Hmm...I know! We get to celebrate my birthday longer, because now he's going to take me out at a later date! Also, I got to spend some quality time with the kids, since we all went to Walmart together (I know, exciting night, right?) Actually it was! We had a lot of fun just being silly together...we're actually all pretty easily entertained!
We also picked up a hula hoop, jump rope and stretching band while we were there, so I can add a little variety to my workouts!
Ok, I have to tell you one thing that my 8 year old DD did before I wrap it up. Her birthday is tomorrow, and because of a conflict of schedule, we cannot have her party until next weekend. To help make up for it, I told her I would take her and one friend to Build A Bear tomorrow. I am so proud of her! That sweet little girl picked one of the "special" friends from her class to go with her! He is autistic and they have put him in her class for the last 3 years because he is comfortable with her and she works well with him. I called his mom to see if it would be ok with her and she was so excited! Kids like him aren't usually invited to do fun stuff like this! She is going to go with us to make sure he handles everything ok, which was great with me. I don't know her very well, but she seems like a sweet lady. So, you never know, maybe a new friend for me too!
So, although it wasn't the day I had planned, we made it a good one anyway!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends! Thank you for reading my ramblings, and offering your words of encouragement and support! I appreciate you more than you will ever know!
