It feels good to be proud of yourself

Yesterdays points:
Say no to a donut- 1
Drink my shake- 1
Run a Mile (yah that's 2 days in a row)-3
Take hubby to the gym- 2
Strength training- 3
Message partners x2= 2
Track food all day- 2
Stay within calorie ranges- 5
Burned 500 cal (Run, bike, walk)- 10
= 33
That's 13 pts extra credit which puts me at a total of 17 pts extra credit!
Excuse me while I cabbage patch.

Yesterday Josh was looking at my points book and saw that I got 10 pts if I got him to go to the gym with me. So he put down the book and goes "Ask me to go to the gym with you today." and before I could figure out what he was doing he put on his shoes and grabbed the gym key. So I didn't give myself the full amount of points for it and I'm thinking of changing it to "work out with a partner- 2 pts". But I give him a billion and a half awesome husband points for it.

At the gym I wasn't feeling my run so I walked .10 of it but I ran an extra .10 at the end to make up for it. I still hate running.

Yesterday was the boys first day at school so I was like "Yah! Woooo free day!" but then I got a call from Aqua saying that the post office was trying to deny our job transfers. So I spent the day on the phone trying to get in contact with people. Then I was told even though Aqua and Eric are all packed and ready to leave for their new states at a moments notice, they have to give us 3 weeks "prep moving time". So today I'm looking for a temporary job :( I walked the frustration off going to pick up the boys from school. It's 1.3 miles from the house ALL UPHILL. Seriously there's only a few flat spots the whole way which is pretty much just the street crossings. There's NO downhill. But what goes up must come down so the hike home was awesome :)

At the boys Karate practice they got their orange belts :)
They were supposed to get them 2 Saturdays ago but we had to take the emergency trip out to my sister. They were very sweet about missing their belt graduation so their Sensei said they could test when they got back. I'm thinking about taking karate with them.

But by the end of the day I was pooped and thought I wouldn't have enough points BUT I DID and I more extra credit yesterday than I had the day before.

Now I'm finishing up my coffee and I'm going to go apply at a few gyms here. Maybe I can work for them until the post office comes through and work myself up to instruct and be a fill in instructor later. Who knows. Praying about today.
