I stayed at my goal for calories - around 1580!
I water jogged today - 45 minutes!
I drank all 8 cups of water!
A VICTORY TODAY - I had to go into the dollar store to get some things for church - looking for stickers of food, flowers, stars, animals (to teach creation), and found none... however, I found Sesame Street stickers for Benjamin and school workbooks for the other 2 grandchildren. They'll enjoy them, so no - it won't be like torture for them to do schoolwork. Anyway - I had to pick up some candy for church, which put me in the candy aisle... my downfall... However -I didn't get ANY candy that I liked - for me or for church lol... I am thankful for God's help in this small (yet big) victory today.
I had a good day - except that Benjamin (2 yr old) was really grumpy today. He does have a cold, but he's really sassy... it seems that we go through this every time he comes back from his mom and dad. fyi - because of my daughter's work schedule - and the fact that we live 30 minutes away from her and gas is costly, we try to minimize trips - so Benjamin says with us anywhere from 1-7 days at a time. If it's a long time, then his mom keeps him that long again. So - it seems like we go through a readjustment every time he comes back to us. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for him! :)
