We went to mexican and I had a chicken enchilada, a taco and a bite of a chili relleno. I saved the rest of the relleno for breakfast the next day.

Today, I'm up and dressed, walking shoes on and everything--now I just need to get out the door!

He had some great examples, Tina. He remembers his grandparents cleaning up the kitchen and doing the dishes together every night. He says that they'd shoo the kids out and would spend that time chatting and getting the kitchen in order. Sweet memories for him, so he likes to help me sometimes.

I was going to say that I'm proud of myself for staying within my calorie range today, but that was before he took me out to dinner for my birthday. I haven't tracked dinner yet and i might be over now.

I'm proud that I made myself go to class yesterday, although I really didn't feel good. I'm not sick; thus, not contagious but just didn't feel good. But, I went to Spanish, did some shopping, bought a couple of steaks for our Valentine dinner and came home and cooked. DH helped, and we made a very nice dinner for the two of us and saved about $50!

They have (had?) a square dance group the boys could have joined a few years back, but you know boys. lol My godparents square danced regularly with a group years ago.

Well-- I'm proud that I realized it's time to get off the stress wagon and do something about this non-stop eating binge I've been on! Cut back starting yesterday, and walking with or without my friend today.

Not to mention, ARROW, that square dancing is pretty good exercise! I used to love square dancing but haven't done it in years.

I worked in my flower bed yesterday and was proud of myself for making some good progress.

Good job 4ARROWS.

My dad used to square dance. I'm not sure if he still does. He says it's lots of fun. =)

I'm proud of myself for NOT over eating and mindlessly snacking yesterday when I was operating on so little sleep. That is HUGE for me! We went square dancing last night, and there are usually lots of (unhealthy) snacks there. I allowed myself to choose a few items that were not too high calorie, and I still came in within my calorie goal for the day!

I got my exercise done and am in the process of tracking it now! So far today, I've eaten within my calorie range but I might have to go to bed early to avoid the munchies later tonight :)

Wow Terri, Great job. I hope it works out well.

I'm in the process of writing a very sensitive note to my mother in law regarding sensitivity to my ds. I pray she receives it well and honors my request. Otherwise I will be forced to censor her notes to him. (but I won't be telling her that part)

I got up early (5:00) and got my day started. I haven't been as diligent with the timer today but keep setting it anyway. Laundry is caught up (3rd load in the dryer), dishwasher has been emptied, dinner is planned (need to cook the rice for the stir-fry), but I haven't worked on my Spanish homework at all...sigh...better get to it!

I hope you made headway with the paper!

Good job Terri~
isn't it amazing what can be accomplished in such a short period of time when one is focused? At least I've found it to be amazing. LOL
Today; I will tackle paper in my library.

I'm working on time management and trying to be better at staying on track with the things I want to accomplish on any given day. Setting a 15-minute timer seems to be helping, believe it or not, because every 15 minutes, I get a "wake-up call" to remind me to stay on task. If I've been on the computer too long, or need to change the laundry from the washer to the dryer, put wood on the fire--or whatever--the timer is my reminder to do the next thing on my list.

So far, so good.

But I got some flower and mint seeds out of the trip. =)

A place to note anything that you are proud of: holding your temper, exercising, eating right, etc. Whatever! Let's hear about the positive in your day!

I had the oatmeal at McD this morning. Love all that fruit!
