I slowly seem to be getting into a little groove. Although I was very busy Sunday and didn't get any exercise in, I did yesterday, and I ate pretty well over the weekend (despite a little cake on Sunday, an early celebration of my birthday).

As far as my goals, here's my report:

Exercise and PT, I got them done yesterday and actually began to work on getting up early enough today so that eventually I will try to get my work out in in the morning. It's been a long time since I've exercised at the beginning of the day, and I'm going to work on getting up a little earlier every morning until I have enough time to get it done. Right now, I am only doing a one mile walk video, so I don't need that much time, but I want to have enough time for a full 30 minutes soon enough.
I have had a couple of good days. Not saying that nothing "bad" crossed my lips, but it was controlled, moderate eating. That is very positive for me.

So I took my 15 year old shopping for his homecoming clothes on Saturday. Black dress shirt, grey pants, hot pink bow tie. We escaped suspenders, thankfully. Had to figure out how the bow tie works, and between my husband and him and me, we were able to. He is going to look pretty sharp! Now he tells me he wants dress shoes. So one more shopping trip is in store this week...
I did pass on an opportunity Saturday morning to go to breakfast with my boys. THat would have been a good way to get one of our together meals in, but I slept pretty late and had a bunch of things I needed to get done, so I passed. But we did have a together meal on Sunday, so I'm half way to that goal with a couple days left.
And the hubby and I did watch the Red Sox together yesterday, so that little goal is met, now we just have to keep it up.

So I think it's incredibly important to keep my head during a time that is going to get very busy at work. I have to have faith that the right thing is going to happen here, even though I'm getting antsy and restless. I am a believer that good things come to those who wait and think and deliberately plot their moves, but it's hard to be patient sometimes. Praying for a little patience here, that will be the toughest thing.
