I love Fridays!

Yesterday was another good day of eating. I did use some WAP's, though, because I ate the last 1/2 of my son's Subway turkey sub. Greedy, yes, I know. But I journaled it and accounted for it. No late night eating, no binging. Water, fruits and veggies, healthy choices. I didn't get a walk in, but did a lot of walking around three different stores. Yes, it was a good day.

This morning I woke up to stress, with both Clyde and his father calling me while I'm trying to get myself and my children ready for work. I told them both where to go and moved on. I brought my little oatmeal packet to work for b'fast, and wasn't paying attention while it was microwaving. The bowl and my oatmeal melted and exploded, so no breakfast for me. I also didn't have time to make coffee this morning. But I had brought a huge bowl of strawberries to work to snack on, so I ate those instead of opting for the school cafeteria breakfast. I have a SmartOnes and a banana and a FiberPlus bar, so hopefully I will be okay today. I know I have a lot of running around to do after work today, so hopefully I can stay strong and stay away from all fast food except for Subway.

I work both Sat. and Sun. at Lane Bryant this weekend. I vow to plan ahead so I can stay on track this weekend. I know I can do it! I just have to focus and keep my eyes on the end result. I really want that Weight Watchers award for 25 lbs on Tuesday. See, although I have lost over 25 lbs, my Weight Watchers numbers are a little behind my own numbers. I have been hovering within 1 lb. of that 25 lbs. award since I started back, and I'm determined to get it on Tuesday. I'm only .6 lbs away.

Only one more week of school until Spring Break! Yay! Then I'll have two weeks off (paid) to have fun with my kids. I hope the weather is nice so that we can do a lot of outdoor activities and get a lot of exercise in. I am SO much more motivated to exercise when the weather is nice. We have a great park not too far from my house that I love to walk at. The track circles around the park, so my kids can play while I walk. Sometimes they'll even walk with me. It's great!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Hope you have a wonderful time over Spring break. My kids don't have theirs till mid-April over Easter. Glad you told Clyde and his dad where to go. Good for you for packing your food too. You are doing great.

  2. That first 2 pounds is such a terrific achievement. I am trying to get to my 50 pound mark...but it alludes me.

  3. First of all girl, the devil sure was busy with you this morning! Good for you for not letting him win!

    Secondly, I'm glad to hear you're doing better. I can hear it in your writing. Although you are very busy, you seem happy. :o)
