Today IS a happy Monday. Yes, Amazing, I know.
But, had a great on plan weekend... even with having pizza and cake! I just need to keep this streak up... long enough to make this a habit, lose the weight, and keep it off this time! (We all know THAT drill!)
What worked: I shopped and ate lots of fruits and veggies. Pretty simple really. I'm cutting down on my sugar... drinking more tea and even more water.
And, I'm down 2.4 pounds from last Monday morning! Since last Monday morning was really depressing, this is really a nice change. Have WW at lunch and we'll see what my lunch weight did, but it should be similar.
I also did my measurements last Wednesday (started late) and then again this morning... already seeing some movement there too, so I'm encouraged. This WW thing is for 20 weeks and I have 30 pounds to lose... so I know I won't make it on that timeline, but I can work toward 20 in that timeframe... and that is my plan.
20 pounds lost by the end of April. I know I'll have good weeks and bad... ups and downs. Travel and parties. But I am going to track everything and, at least, be aware of what I'm doing.
We got our tree put up and decorations up this weekend. Out of town packages are wrapped, just need to be mailed (hopefully tomorrow). This also means that the projects for out of town are completed! Now, well, I'm working on some extras for co-workers There is always some project you can make and someone that will appreciate it! I am learning so much and challenging myself to try new things. And I'm really enjoying it this year.
Okay - off to work. I hope everyone can start this Monday out on a good note!

Well, I am at work, so no Frantic Black Friday for me. I actually avoid crowds if I can... one of the reasons I live in a small town But, even here, Black Friday can be crazy... so it's a good day to avoid the stores.
Eating yesterday was... well, Thanksgiving
Didn't get in my steps... not enough between the kitchen and the living room/dining room apparently. I thought about going for a walk in the morning, but then made the apple pies (mini's so you could have your own)... and then got to cleaning and then it was time to put the turkey in, get cleaned up and ready for company. ah well. It was a good day. Fairly low stress. Good food. Family. No drama.
Today I am starving... which is odd... but there it is. I'm eating the healthy snacks in my drawer... but they're almost gone I have a healthy lunch, but I have a feeling it is not going to be enough... though I am hopeful because it is high fiber and high protein. Drinking lots of water.
Tomorrow will be insane... have a pancake feed (set up starting at 7) until 11, then cleanup. 1pm is a scout outing for my son... 3:30 is karate for both kids... then doing a kid swap with a friend (my daughter will stay the night at her house with her girls and her son will come stay with my son). Those are usually a little bit crazy, but not too bad, since the number of kids is the same - just have to deal with a little bit of selective hearing loss (kids don't seem to hear mom when a friend is over).
Sunday should be quiet though... except for playing catch up... grocery shopping and laundry. At least the house is clean from yesterday, so cleaning will be minimal. May be able to get some more projects done. Oh! Created a couple of headband/ear warmers Wednesday night and yesterday - for two more gifts...
Hey! Have a fabulous start to the holiday season - whatever you may be doing this first weekend! Be safe, have fun - and remember what the holidays are REALLY about!
