Terrific Thursday

Thursday, July 11, 2013

Son came up to tinker with my hubby for a couple of days. They've been working on the truck and puttering around. Been nice to have him around some.

Had lunch with a dear friend yesterday. Love spending time with her. We go way back to raising our kids together. What a dear, dear friend and what a blessing she is. We just rarely get to see each other.

Feel like I'm getting hit with lots of things all around me...feeling the stress of it and think I turn to eating...seeing the scale creep up 5 pounds. Wish I were more like the radio hosts and only eat when I'm hungry.

At my early morning meeting the President brought doughnuts. I can always pass them by no problem...then at the end she announced they also had doughnuts with a reece cup in the favorite...well I ended up taking one of those to work. Fortunately I didn't eat breakfast yesterday...and was good. Then my friend called and wanted to meet for my packed lunch sat by my desk all day. Will recycle it for today. I choose not to miss those precious moments with friends.

So back on track today. Like the lesson this AM I want to be old and look back and see that I overcame this weight loss issue and managed my intake instead of letting it manage me!

Off to seize the day!

As a side note...was talking with my friend yesterday how I was a stay at home mom and raised my kids and hubby didn't have time for them is his season...he really enjoys time with our son and daughter and at times I feel left out cause I'm working and out of their loop...yet what a blessing that he finally spends them with them and they build a relationship together. I come home and they seem to have both enjoyed their time together. That is neat to observe.

Off to make it happen!
