I was SO good today. I’m pleased with the fact that I stayed pretty focused on getting the things done that needed to be done, and a few extra little things. The BEST part is that I stayed in a positive mind set all day. Not manic…just calm and happy. I stayed within my calories/fat/carbs goals from SparkPeople today — the nutrition plan I have started to lose weight. I have lost 2 lbs this week but that’s not really much, I fluctuate between 1 and 5 lbs all the time. We’ll see how that goes.
Again, 6 out of 8 days of exercise….
I drank more than 8 glasses of water, and less than 2 cans of soda…
I bought 3 pairs of exercise pants — really comfy capris and yoga pants on the clearance. I spent less than $25 for the 3 pairs. I probably could have done better than that but I’m glad I got some pants. I have left my 2 favorite pairs of yoga pants at my mom’s house! But now I have some decent clothes to walk in (and sleep in)…
I went and took Princess to marching band practice. I don’t know if I mentioned that she has been asked to march with the high school marching band for homecoming. She is one of 4 8th graders that were asked. She was singled out by the band teacher as doing a GREAT job. They were soo good and she looked good out there, she looked like she’s been doing it forever. And she looked gorgeous, so I’m hoping her crush from last year (Tom) who is in 9th grade (drum line — so cool), noticed her! That would be nice for her self esteem…but of course if that happens I will be monitoring those interactions.
She is grounded and life is pretty tough around here for her. She’s slaving for us also — lots of extra chores. She lied to us this weekend and although I’m too tired of discussing it to write it all out on here (I’m sorry), she is definitely going to get this lesson once and for all. Fact is that she and her best friend are definitely going to be spending some time apart…and we are insisting that Princess expand her friend base and do things with more people for now.
Ok, I off to bed now, nite nite…
