Anniversary and Wishful Thinking
Monday, July 08, 2013
I'm having a nice quiet day. Started the day with a 60 minute workout before the kids got up. Eli did get up in time to come watch me do my last 8 minutes on the bike. He and I talked and I stretched while we continued to make plans for the day.
The kids and I went out. I treated them to new Legos and books. We went out for fast food. I felt kinda bad about that as a choice. But while we were eating, Eli, 9, talked about having a workout room like us when he gets his own home. I liked hearing him talk like that!
I'm happy to say that it's 3:30 and we haven't turned on the tv at all today. Yesterday, my hubby and I weren't feeling too creative about entertaining them, so they mostly played on their Kindle Fires and watched some Netflix.
Today is our 36th anniversary and our 21 year old son is going to come watch the grandkids while we go out for dinner. I already planned what I will eat. I am allowing a bit of extra calories. I am celebrating. Normally we would celebrate by taking the 5 hour trip to the beach and walking along the water's edge for an hour or two, but with the grandkids staying with us, we are limited on how long we can spend away from the house. I wish we lived closer to the beach. And it's way to hot and humid for us to enjoy a hike together. Maybe I can plan something like that for when they leave. Two weekends from yesterday we will have freedom. I'd like to go canoeing or do something involving water. Though swimming is out. Hubby sinks!
I am not going to make it...losing the weight I'd hoped to lose by my daughter's wedding. It's on the 10th of August. I have one month. I lose at the rate of 0 pounds a week! I'm staying stable but I really can't say I'm totally content at this weight. I'd like to lose 6 pounds. Or find a dress that looks good on me at my present weight! Wish me luck!
