Week 17

Last week was quite the week! It was April vacation for the kiddos and we had a great time!!

Trips into Boston, museums, play dates, sleep over’s.... As tiring as it was, I'm sad to see it end. Great memories made with my little men!

But with all of that fun brought many food challenges. Quite frankly, I had victory many times and other times I caved. Here's the cool part though - I feel totally good about it.

I've said it once, I'll say it again (and again, and again I'm sure) I will not truly change to a healthier lifestyle if I feel that it will mean I have to live too restrictively. If I want to indulge in a hot dog at Quincy Market, then so be it. Heck, how often do I even go there? Maybe once every 18 months or so... When we went to the movies, yes, I had popcorn! But again, other times, I made really great choices! The hubs and I went to lunch one day and I really wanted to get one of the pasta dishes in the creamycheesieyummy sauces, but didn't. I wanted to have an ice cream with the kids, but instead chose to have a Klondike 100 calorie bar at home. It was a week of give-and-take.

To be honest, I dreaded the walk to the closet this morning to pull out my cold white metal nemesis. But to my surprise, it was quite nice to me this morning. Thank you scale!! I'm down 3 lbs.

Are you ready for the grand total kids? 31 pounds lost!!!

This now brings me to my next reward of 2 glorious hours to myself!! Maybe I'll use those two hours to redeem my 25 pound weight loss reward of a hair cut which I still have not done. (Looking for a cheap reasonably priced, good hair stylist that has hours I can do.) So yeah me!!

The Week Ahead:
As much as I was sad to see vacation week end I was not anticipating that the big guy would be staying home today due to sickness. (poor guy) So had to cancel with the cc today. : ( Reschedule!

I have been doing so little exercise, save for all of the walking on our adventures over school break. Come to think about it, I'm sure that's what I have to thank for the 3 lb loss. I'm hoping to start walking at least a few days/nights a week. Looking for a local walking buddy. Actually, I do believe I'll have two little walking buddies. I'll let you know how that goes : )

Need to be more diligent tracking, I've been getting sloppy. Same goes with sleeping and drinking my water. I've been slacking on my 8 hours sleep/glasses of water.

Holy bloggity distraction!
It's time to get the little guy to preschool.

I'm off my friends - Have a great week!!
