Aug 1st.... down 5 pounds in July

Thursday, August 01, 2013

Today has been a really good day overall. I taught 3 hours of classes this morning. Then I went with my granddaughter to pick out kittens from the SPCA. She picked out to precious little babies and have already been calling me to report on how they are doing. She's very happy. Then I had lunch with my DH & a couple of pool friends. That was nice. It was/is payday so of course there is stress of the whole money thing... but I am totally grateful because at the end of the money, all my bills are paid and the beat goes on. That is MUCH better than some folks have going for them. I'm trying to let go of my stress over the van and trust that something will happen and SOMEHOW it will all work out. It's all about trust & patience. I got a lot of important Sparking done today. My weigh in was a good one, lost 2 pounds this week for a total of 5 pounds lost in July. Not what I would have really liked, but it's a loss & I am GRATEFUL. My friend Sandra came by & picked me up to go to the Collinsville Y pool for our Aqua Zumba class, extra exercise & my Deep Water class. We had a great time & I am SORE, but in a good way. Once home my son had fixed an awesome dinner and I have been steady Sparking along since.

My food is high today. I went over my high end by 300+ calories. However, my exercise was very high today so I am not really going to stress the small stuff. I did change my "day" for my streak below however. I am happy with my plan of action today.

Time for bed. Sweet dreams to all.
