I haven't taken a nap since Sunday. This is very strange for me... I LOVE to nap. And I'm a great napper. I can nap on the couch, in a chair, in the bed... at noon, at 3:00pm, at 7:30 pm...
What I've noticed is that my sleeps have been better. Even last night, after having a lot of good food and wine... I woke up this morning at 5:00. Five o'clock!!!! Holy moly. I already put in a load of laundry, packed my lunch, and got some Sparking done.
So I may continue this no-napping thing for a while.
Water drinking has been really good. The hot weather always brings out the best drinker in me.
Friday was a big hot mess of carb-y stuff at work... we had a parent breakfast. Too many baked goods, not enough fruit salad. Last night was Restaurant Week Awards night - I went with a girlfriend and had a GREAT time. Even though I ate a lot, I made sure I was only eating food I really liked. I didn't eat much of the ribs - they weren't that good. Brad makes WAY better ribs at home. And one of the desserts was very meh, so I didn't eat it all. (And leaving a dessert on a plate is just CRAZY for me.)
But there is good, of course. I have been eating fruit like it's going out of style. We loaded up on fruit at the store, and I have been making fruit salad since Sunday. Fruit is so delicious in salad form. I have to keep this in mind - it makes eating fruit a lot more fun.
I am on the next stage of my workout (The New Rules of Lifting...). It's *finally* stage two. I did my first workout on Monday - HOLY MOLY. Those squat/push press things are hard! But I am going to have an awesome rear end after all this. There are so many lunges and squats and dead lifts I can hardly even stand it.
(This is my emoticon for ME time.) My flight to New Orleans is booked - mom and I are going at the end of June. I am SO excited! And when school is out, one of the girls at school and I are going into NYC to celebrate the end of school. And then I'm going again with another friend. I LOVE the city.
Last night was a massage - I feel so wonderful. It hurt like hell, but I feel great today.
Exciting stuff!!! I recently went in to the jeweler to have my engagement ring cleaned, and she noticed that the band was getting a little oval-shaped. This is because my ring was too big. TOO BIG!!!! So she measured it all out and I had it re-sized from a 7 1/4 to a 6 1/2. AAAHHHH this is totally exciting. It fits like a dream and it looks so little (the band, not the diamond) now. Yay!
Memorial Day Bikini-Wearing Pool Party Day is coming!
Have a great day!
