This morning was everything the two young ones and my nieces thought it should be. Three of the four received tablets, everyone has a Quillow or blanket, the young ones have Monster High dolls, Looming supplies, music, gift cards, my young one loves her laptop and the SO and I got the young man his team jacket since we figured he deserved it and as long as he continues his responsible ways he is fine.
In terms of my Christmas I have 4 Amazon Gift Cards totaling $500, lol. I guess my rep was found out so everyone capitalized which is fine by me. The SO did get me my jewelry and it is a bit much I'm still trying to process that one. I'll write more about that in a day or two. I have a new Samsung Tablet, a FitBit Force in slate; a Denver Broncos Quillow, an Organiser for 2014 daily version from Moleskine A4 size which is much nicer. I received an Atari gaming system and a two dozen red roses from the SO and surprise we're married now lol.
Paolo surprised me this morning and just don't ask me how he persuaded the official to perform the ceremony on Christmas. The man is full of surprises and its fine. After we were up at 8am and did the family thing about 1pm we wore our wedding clothes and were married. It seems the SO was getting antsy thinking I was going to bow out. I'm not sure what I ever did to give him that impression. He needs to stop chatting with my family really. I know who knows you better than your family right? However, I am different than what my family knows for the most part and their assumptions can be wrong most of the time. I've always been straight with Paolo and he admitted he was just getting too nervous and wanted to just get married and be done with it. He can be funny that way sometimes but I always said I didn't need a big wedding. Small is just fine with me.
At 345pm I went for my walk but Paolo came with me this time and it was a pleasant walk. I still have 22 minutes to get to 90 minutes but I think I'll skip trying to be super girl tonight, this Christmas stuff is tiring. My Aunt is supposed to come round tomorrow about noon and my brother decided to stay home tonight because he is still pretty sick. He has to work tomorrow so he decided to rest which is good. I'm going to hit the bed round 11pm tonight and Paolo is already blowing ZZZZZZ's.
I am going to do 5 situations a day for 4 days starting tomorrow and be done with The Writing Diet. I have been doing pretty decent with my sleep this month, the best I can and better than in the past anyhow. I've done okay with yoga and meditation but not to what I stated for goal. I wouldn't call it a failure but not a success quite yet. I'm progressing toward a success with it.
I made over 11,000 steps today so I am pleased with that part, my food has been off for a few days. I just don't have the urge to eat heavy Italian, pie, meatballs, ham, antipasto etc...No appetite for that kind of food. I've been round 1300-1400 calories since I've eaten yoghurt, fruit, vegetables, eggs, lighter fare. I did have ice cream though and haven't eaten more bourbon balls, cookies or other sweets. Exercise curbs my appetite though majorly. I eat enough to sustain though.
