The weekend is over already and for the most part it was a good one.
Friday I had some ME time thanks to DH. He took his Mom out to get her hair done and to do a little shopping. I managed to get a workout done, a shower and some time on the computer. Just when I sat down to do some reading they were back, but that was okay.
Sat. we helped our daughter move her dryer from her condo over to her new house, so I counted it as some cardio because we also moved a lot of other things.
Sat. night it was time for my MIL to do some complaining to DH. She has been here 6 weeks now and she was complaining that it was too dark in her room at night. Here we found out she was leaving the little flash light that her son gave her to find her way to the bathroom on all night. DH had put new batteries in it three times in six weeks. She stopped her complaining when I walked into the room. We managed to find a dim light to keep on in the room for her. We keep a night light in the bathroom and her bedroom is only three steps from her door to the bathroom door. Anyhow, today we picked up a different night light and we had to use an extension cord so she could see the light because we put it so the light will light her path to her door. DH wants me to tell her I did it so she won't start complaining because he says she goes along with whatever I say or she stops as soon as I walk into the room.
All in all today was a really nice day because we went over to our daughter's and soon to be fiancee's new home and had brunch with them and his parent's. It was really nice getting out and having nice conversation and no hollering.
I got on the scale this morning.......bad move. I gained a pound and I know why. I've been eating a lot of the wrong stuff....stress and I found myself going back to my comfort foods. I can feel the uncomfortable feeling now but it was so nice while I was doing it. I have to focus and get back to working on my goals. I wanted to be down to 145 by the first of the year and if I keep doing this I won't see it and I will be very upset with myself.
Well, it's time to go sit and watch some TV with my MIL so I will say good night....
