I had a very good end of summer long weekend. It started on Friday afternoon with a trip to Jackpot to do some gambling and get a few hours of me time. It was fun, but got back very late. Later than I had actually planned which messed up my plans for Saturday. But what a great time!!
Saturday was a very lazy day, made the husband and kiddo a French toast breakfast and cleaned up the house a bit. Took a long nap with the kiddo, and then played outside, with the neighbor baby. Blake loved getting to play with his friend. I missed the walk with some Spark friends that are local, and oh I wish I had gotten up a little bit earlier. I was really looking forward to it, and my wonderful husband did not realize that I had plans, and came in and shut off my alarm. He figured I needed the sleep.
Sunday was a clean house, do laundry, grocery shopping kind of day. I have a list, and a plan for this week to eat some healthier dinners. I made spaghetti and salad for dinner and boy was it good. I used some fresh oregano and fresh basil in my sauce, and it turned out really good.
Monday we took the baby and went to Robie Creek with some friends. Had a cookout, and did smores. Oh how I love smores. Blake got to roast his first marshmallow, and he did great. He listened the whole day, did what we told him most of the time and thoroughly enjoyed playing in the dirt. He was one dirty baby when I got him home last night. But he just had the time of his life. My husband and I got some time to go target practice, and just had a very nice time up in the Mountain Air.
Yesterday was my last day of cheats. I am tired of doing this to myself and not losing, not getting anywhere really and the Holiday's are just around the corner. I saw a post on facebook this morning that there is only 18 Saturday's left until Christmas. Time to get a move on, win this diet bet and get into my Christmas blouse this year.
Gratitude: Grateful for a very wonderful husband who stayed home with Blake and let me go to Jackpot, grateful for friends that invited us to the cabin, and grateful for a holiday weekend to get to spend quality time with my family.
WINS: 3.1 mile run with one mile being a 9.8. Staying within meal plan and calorie counts today.
