The kitchen is done being painted, and Brad is finishing up the ceiling now. By god, I think the painting is almost done!
This morning was weigh-in day and the scale was very nice to me. It really gave me a boost to start the day! I did some interval hills and sprints on the TM. The gym was nice and empty. Came home and had a delicious roast beef sandwich for lunch. Brad and I started our own little tradition of having a lunch meat sandwich on Sunday afternoons. How funny that lunch meat is like a little treat for me now where it used to be an almost every-day thing for me!
Tum is rumbling a little bit for something... I'll clean up a little bit and then maybe have some fruit.
- worked out hard!
- drank all my water
- got lots done around the house
- wrote in my journal - I really needed to do this today!

Today was another pretty good day! I woke up early for a swim, had a decent day at school, and came home to fried chicken for dinner! Perfect!
And tomorrow's Friday! What more could I ask for?!?!?
I'm so looking forward to the weekend.

I don't usually try recipes that I find in magazines, only because with hubs being a chef, he can come up with pretty darn good stuff on his own. But the other day, a breakfast idea jumped out at me. Brad isn't awake when I eat breakfast, so I can kind of do my own thing. Today I tried a magazine idea - a slice of raisin toast with fat free cottage cheese mixed with chopped figs, walnuts, and little honey. SOOOO delicious. This is something totally different for me! I love cottage cheese, but don't get it often because I'm the only one who eats it. I have a feeling that I'm going to be eating this breakfast a lot! I'm totally full from all the stuff in the cottage cheese. Yahoo!
I have a haircut today after school. I can not wait! There's nothing like a little head massage and fresh cut to perk me up! Not getting anything chopped, just cleaned up a bit. It's time.
I don't observe Lent in the religious sense, but I *do* like to give something up. I think it's a great stepping stone to giving up bad habits, or to change something you don't like. I decided I'm going to give up using my credit card for Lent. This morning I paid a bill, and I got a little sad because I thought how much more fun I'd have spending the money on something else (or socking it away in savings!) rather than paying off prior purchases. Boo-hoo. So no credit card for me.
- lots of water
- track food (I've been doing a good job lately!)
- workout HARD tonight. I decided to give myself the morning to recover from my massage (yes, I need to recover from it - deep tissue and it HURT) so I'll do my run/circuit training this evening. A nice change of pace, anyway.

Earlier this morning I went back through some old Spark stats, because I like to do that sometimes. I saw something interesting - at the beginning of my weight-loss journey, when I was losing lots of weight, I was also earning the most Spark points. I was active on Spark, blogging, posting on boards, getting points... and in 2011, when I kind of had a stagnant/gaining year, I wasn't as active - my Spark points started curving down. This is really no surprise - I am the most excited about my own journey when I'm sharing other people's successes. Hm.
Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with an awful leg pain. I didn't figure out until this morning that it was probably due to almost falling on my rear end last night when I went out on the porch, not knowing that there was a thin sheet of ice on it. I was able to not fall, but I think I pulled something in the process. Ugh. So I'm not as rested as I would like to be today, but I'll make do.
I have lots to do today! I have to get a sensor removed from a gift (argh) before I go to my mom's house and have lunch, and then I'm going to a baby shower for a good friend. How fun! Then it's home to my honey.
- drink lots of water
- don't get carried away with eating at the baby shower! Keep a glass of water handy. Brad even said to me "just be careful eating. You've been working really hard and I want you to keep being happy with yourself." Isn't he amazing?!?!?
- Enjoy the day! Sometimes I get so caught up in what I need to do in the future that I can't really enjoy what's going on at the time. It's going to be super fun today!
Time to get ready to go... have a super day!
