Day 93 & 94 Check In...
Sooo....I am doing the happy dance tonight!!! Just finished my last 10 hour work day and am now off for the summer!!!
Many of you have asked about how my fast went. On day 2 (yesterday), I started feeling weak and not quite right, so I went ahead and broke the fast for supper. It had been 48 hours so it was time anyway. I feel like I accomplished what I wanted. It was nice not having to worry about food for a couple of days. I was able to focus on other more important things.
Today was a really, really long day! Due to some kind of weird scheduling thing, I ended up working by myself for most of the day. The other secretaries finished up yesterday. Do you know how creepy it feels to be in a big old school all by yourself? Not mention that I finished all of my work this morning and still had 5 hours to kill! Fortunately I brought my tablet and loaded some books so I spent the afternoon reading. It was actually king of nice once I got over the creepiness of it!
Sunday is mine and DH's 23rd Anniversary, but since he is working on Sunday, we celebrated tonight. We had a wonderful dinner out and enjoyed spending time together! If you've read my blogs for a while, you know that I don't drink (just a personal choice...not against anyone else who does). It also might have something to do with growing up in a good ole Southern Baptist church! Anyway, I always order water now, but saw a drink on the menu that was a zero calorie non alcoholic pomegranate citrus drink that looked yummy. I decided to order it since it was a special occasion. Anyway, the waiter brought my husband's water and said my drink would take a little longer because they had to mix it at the bar! I said, "it is non-alcoholic, right?" He said, "oh yes, they just have to mix it there." DH was making fun of me because I was so afraid someone from church would see me and think I was drinking! It was kind of cool drinking something from the fancy glass, though! Fortunately, I didn't run into anyone I knew!
I will go back to my regular check in format tomorrow. I think my weight should have leveled out from the fast by then. I am feeling much better and ready to hit that goal of reaching the 170's before I go on vacation at the end of this month. I am so excited to be heading to the mountains and much cooler weather. my mom said it was 38 when they woke up this morning and has been getting into the upper 70s/lower 80s for the high! I love working out up there and usually do at least 2 to 3 hours a day! They have all kinds of fun family activities, like square dancing, line dancing, hikes, all kinds of exercise classes, and beautiful tennis courts set at the foot of the mountains (DS and I love to play!). Hopefully I will have much more interesting things to report to you while we're there!
I am going to pick kids up from camp tomorrow. I am happy to report that itty bitty made it through the whole week! Yay! I think it was really good for her to spend some time away from home. She is such a little homebody, and really a mama's girl, which I enjoy, but also know that it is good for her to learn to be a little more independent! Don't get me wrong, I'm going to be thrilled to see her and smother her with hugs and kisses when I see her!!!
Have a great day tomorrow my friends! I'm going to enjoy having all my chickadees back home again!
