Day 47 and other updates

Sunday, February 16, 2014

My streak is still alive at 47 days now. Today I did weights for ten minutes and also got on my elliptical for 15 to try to get my steps up for the day.

Yesterday was a really nice day. I've been itching to get out and do something, anything! Winter is starting to really get to me. Hubby, Bridget and I went to Sean's basketball game bright and early to start the day. His team lost, but they played really well. Sean scored 6 of their 8 points. We came home, ate lunch, and then Hubby and I went out alone. The sun finally came out. We went out to Village Point, an outdoor shopping center. Hubby and I walked for 15 minutes and then did some shopping. I had a good time, but didn't end up getting anything for myself. It did feel good to get everything I was looking for, for the kids. Hubby even got a new pair of Keen shoes.

After shopping, we decided to splurge and go out to eat. Yes, I went off my plan for one meal and I thoroughly enjoyed it! We had that Dave Matthews white wine, chicken wings (which were incredible!), filet medallions in a wine sauce, and green beans with sugared pecans. Overall, good decisions for my eating plan, but still a little splurging. We didn't like what movies were showing, so we headed home to our small town theater. We took all the kids to "The Lego Movie," which we all really enjoyed. We splurged here too. I ate some buttered movie popcorn. YUM!!!

I usually step on the scale daily, but have decided to wait at least three days before getting on again. My weight yesterday before our fun day was 139!!! Very happy to see that number!!!

So, yesterday was a really good day.

    Winter's getting to me too. Woke up to fairly heavy snowfall. Blech.

    Congrats to Sean!
