HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I say that when in all actuality, I don't really consider is a holiday. And no I'm not just saying that because I'm single. Growing up I don't ever remember my parents making a big deal out of Valentine's Day, I just remember my dad loving my mom all the time. He would come home randomly with flowers for no reason at all. As us kids grew older and they gave us their credit card to use for gas or groceries or whatever, he would call us and say things like "I'm working over, stop by the store and get some flowers and figure out dinner." Or different things like that. I know that was us doing the actual work, but he actually took the time to think, I want her to have something nice to come home from work to, even though I can't get home right away myself. So yeah, that's why I don't really consider today a holiday...but I do take advantage of it's after holiday sales! lol Ok, so enough about that. I woke up late again this morning and I didn't even take Benadryl last night! Oh well, I don't have to work tomorrow so I should be able to sleep in a little. So because I didn't do my jumping jacks yesterday, my goal was to do them today and even though the babies were very uncooperative, I was able to successfully do, at least, 2000 jumping jacks. I say at least because I think I feel like I may have said the wrong number a few times while counting and so I added an extra ten to twenty depending on how far ahead I think I skipped. I did them in sets of 50 to make it easier to not get so tired as quickly and I did each set a little more vigorously too. But even though I thought it would be easier to count, after counting to 50 so many times, you do begin to make mistakes. lol Throughout the day I did really well with my eating and I even planned in a few chocolates...ok so I take advantage of the chocolate today too...but after I got home, that's when I got into trouble. My mom made dinner for us and it was delicious! She made steak and steamed broccoli which aren't terrible for you, but then she also made Mac n cheese, cheesy biscuits and a homemade potato cheesy bacon soup. I don't think I did too horribly with all that as I ate more broccoli than anything else and didn't finish off all my other foods. But right before dinner my aunt called telling us to come over when we were done so we could eat some birthday cake. Today my cousin Gracie turned 7! :) So, we went over after dinner and ate some cake. It was soooooooo good, but it was also ridiculously sweet and I know I should not have eaten the whole piece. But, I also decided early on in this process that I need to be able to live life and today, that sometimes is a part of life. But, tomorrow I get to go out with my best friend and have our own Valentine's celebration as singles and enjoy every bit of it. Even though I don't consider it a holiday, I also don't think singles should feel like they're less important for any reason so we are going to dinner and a movie before our crazy weekend begins. Saturday is the rehearsal for my friend's wedding and then the wedding is Sunday. Hopefully I will dance off quite a few calories on Sunday and hopefully I won't stress eat during this weekend either. I can do this. I can keep it together and make it through the weekend. Coming out of it with a LOSS! :)
