Just Touching Base

It was a busy weekend. Whew! Not enough hours in the day. Definitely no time to eat out of boredom. I've had two weeks I've eaten a little than lower calories than my allowance, so to make sure I didn't lose ground with keeping a good metabolism, I had a day of more calories. I ate good for me foods, so it wasn't a time to fill up on goodies. No weight fluctuation involved. I got right back to business the next day, and today is off to a great start. I also got past a 24 hour period that we were taking care of the grandchildren. I am so proud of myself that I am finding I no longer stress out over having company in the house. It has allowed me to stop the stress-eating that almost all of the time accompanied having guests. I really can hardly believe it. ]
I ended up hardly exercising last week. I was feeling a little bad about that, but decided to just not worry about it. I was actually motivated to go out and walk this morning. When I got out there and checked the Weather Channel on my iPhone, I saw it was 55 degrees at 8:00! I took a 5K walk, and the temp only went up to 60. I am so glad I did that walk. It's made me feel good all day. After I got home and hydrated, I waited to absorb the water and proceeded to do 10 min of intense ST. I'd only done ST once last week and I'd like to be doing twice a week. Whenever I ST, I love it, but I have a hard time remembering that so I put it off. It's only 10 minutes for pete's sake! Anyone can do that!
I'm going to buy a bicycle. I haven't had one in 2 1/2 decades, so I think it's time to get one. I always loved to ride when I was young. It has been so nice out lately that it makes me want to ride and feel the wind in my hair. Though nowadays you have to wear a helmet, so it's probably not going to feel the same. Well, I can feel the wind in my face anyway!
Not much going on in my brain. I just felt like writing, so out came a rambling blog!
Have a great week!
Oh, I also am happy I made it past the 25th day binge free. No urges to binge in all that time! I can hardly believe it!
