This has been a very long day and I'm happy it's over! Actually, it's not been a bad one, just a long one.
I ended up having both girls to baby-sit today rather than just the oldest one. And the oldest didn't get to go to Girl Scouts tonight, which meant I lost my Mommy Time. :( I will get to make it up tomorrow (again) at least.
The day did start off great though. As many of you know, my weight has been sitting around 147 lbs for more than 3 months now. Everytime it would start going down a little, it would shoot right back up. This time last week, I was back up to 151 lbs because of TOM. I woke up to do my weigh-in this morning for BLC17. You can imagine my surprise when the number on the scale was 144.6!?! I actually stepped off the scale and back on 3 different times, getting the same number each time. Getting below 145 was a big milestone for me for several reasons: I have now lost 40 lbs in 8 months, I am just below the weight I started at when I got pregnant with Keiran, and I'm within 10 lbs of my goal weight. WOW!
I'm going to end my blog on that note as I get ready to drift off to dreamland. I can't believe it's barely 10:00 here and I'm falling asleep as I type. We're going to Pensacola tomorrow to unwind. Tony wants to visit the Spirit Halloween store since it's supposed to be larger than the one we have here. And I get to go pick up my Mary Kay order. :( For the first time in my life I'm looking forward to starting a skin care routine. lol Good night, Sparkers!!!
