Today is going well!

Tuesday, January 31, 2017

I'm having a good day today! I've been making a habit to get 2 glasses of water (1 really tall glass!) of water before I head out for the day, around 12 for school days, 1 or 2 on non school days. Today I managed 3 glasses! I'm really proud of that; that's been really rough for me. I am finding that as I drink more water, my taste for sugary drinks is decreasing again. emoticon

My knee is all healed again. Horray! I was thinking how I saw this huge jump in weight and inches when I started walking my son the 3 miles to and from school, so today I added another mile. A half mile when I drop him off, a half on the way back. I'm feeling it already! It's possible that the half mile might be all the addition I should be doing; I'll see how I feel at pickup time. emoticon

My son, who's 3 now, (When did that happen??) wants to run run run everywhere. He got me to run a little bit, but I mostly did some interval walking on the way to school. The stroller doesn't handle bumps well, and I am so NOT up for running 3 miles! I can WALK a 5K without too much trouble, but running? I don't think so! Maybe someday. emoticon

I still hit my Starbucks while Nate has been in school, but I'm officially downgrading to a grande, and a drink with less sugar. Like I said, my taste for sugar is decreasing, but I still need my soy, so I've been experimenting. Chai tea bags brewed with hot soy is pretty good. emoticon

All in all, a very good day! Hope you all have an awesome day!

    Aww! So cute! Give him all the kisses for me! emoticon

    You can ask for less "pumps" of flavor, so you can still get the same amount of liquid with less sugar. You can google and see how many pumps are in each of your fav drinks. If you decrease it by a pump or 2 each time, it will be easier!

    Tall: 3 pumps for lattes, 2 pumps for caramel macchiatos, 1 for frappuccinos. Grande: 4 pumps for lattes, 3 pumps for caramel macchiatos, 1 for frappuccinos. Venti: 5 pumps for lattes, 4 pumps for caramel macchiatos, 2 for frappuccinos

    Try asking for a Soy London Fog. It's like the chai tea you were describing! (less pumps of sugar) emoticon

    Great job! It is little changes that make a big difference, when you follow them daily. What a handsome son! Have you tried Starbucks sugar free flavors? They have a big variety. I like lattes or teas with SF vanilla and soy.

    Keep making those important small changes! You will reach your goals 1 step at a time! I bet one day soon you will be running right after nate! Just keep moving forward!

    First off what a beautiful and handsome boy! Sounds like you're doing good so far. Small steps and changes at a time. I hope to get rid of my knee pain by March if I can lose enough weight. It will make things so much easier. Good luck to you!
