161. +1 from last week and +2 from my lowest. Eek! Good thing I had those NSV's last week because the scale sure wasn't kind. I know where it came from though. Too much indulgence in sweets and booze. Onward and downward from here.
Yesterday was my youngest daughter's 4th birthday party. She turns 4 tomorrow so we did it a couple days early to have it on a weekend. She finally settled on a princess theme and she truly looked the part. I'll post pics as soon as I can get them on my laptop. She's been fighting a cold and almost fell asleep halfway through but she stuck it out and had a great time. It was just the family so not a big deal if she fell asleep or not. We had South Carolina barbecue in her honor and I must say Hubby did a fantastic job with the food. Of course, this also contributed to the scale being mean this morning but I digress.
I have fairly little going on over the next couple weeks other than your typical work holiday stuff. I'm going to do my best to get back on track so that I can at least maintain over the holidays overall. I bought some good salad stuff to eat for lunches over this week just to give my body a break from all the carby crap I've been having lately. I'm actually looking forward to it.
The new job is going pretty well. I'm leading my first big meeting this morning (yep...I've been doing this 2 weeks...sure, I'm ready to lead a big meeting with auditors and vendors and what not..sure. No problem. Ahem...) and I'm just a touch nervous about it. The most annoying thing is they still don't have a permanent desk for me so I move from desk to desk depending on who's out. The one I'm at this week is absolutely disgusting and I got to spend the first half hour of my day getting all the dust out. Great start to the week.
I hope everyone had a magnificent holiday weekend and survived all the family togetherness it brings. And now your Monday DEMotivator:
