So it's my first Non Weigh In Monday. It did feel a little weird not stepping on that scale this morning. I almost did but resisted. It helped that I was really tired this morning and didn't feel like getting out of bed at all, much less weighing myself. Usually Hubby is fast asleep when my alarm goes off but for some reason, he was sort of awake this morning and cuddled up close. This made it much more difficult getting motivated to face the day but face it I did. Food choices over the weekend were certainly not ideal. Portions were OK though. I'm at least maintaining I think, albeit retaining a bit of water as the water intake over the weekend wasn't so great. My goal for Monday-Wednesday this week is to stick to planned meals and snacking (they still may not be great but at least it's a plan) and get all my water in. Thursday and Friday are being spent with my sister which includes dinner, drinks, and breakfast so I'm not gonna sweat it. Saturday and Sunday will be about better choices.
And so it's Monday and I'm back at work at this job that I STILL don't get and I'm pretty sure that it's not my fault that I don't get it. There is absolutely NO training and the position is kind of "made up" so whatever. It is a short week however and I'm grateful for that. I have Thursday and Friday off to spend time with my sister and niece who are in town this week. So flippin' excited about this! Thursday is a girls' day. My sister and I are hitting a day spa and then got a night at a hotel sans hubbies or kiddos. We're having a girls' night out and are going to sleep in as late as we want on Friday. Much needed break for her, I think. I think this trip will do my sister a world of good...let her get away from the stress of the last year. By the way, her hubby is holding up OK. He made it past his one year diagnosis in December and so far the MRI's have been stable. The doctors gave him 6-12 months and he's already blown past it and is doing well. Saturday and Sunday will probably be spent just hanging out at my mom's house and letting my girls get to know their cousin better. My niece is turning 5 in April so she's right in between my girls (6 and 4) so I think they'll have a lot of fun together.
Saturday is my first 5k of the year. Training has taken a hit here lately so not sure if I'll be running it or just walking it but it'll be fun either way. I'll try to take lots of pictures to post here. I think the next thing I do is at the end of February - Climb for Cancer...it's a hike at our local mountain that benefits ACS. It's a little different and I'm not sure of the distance but given the elevation, I'm thinking it should count as a 5k.
Breakfast and lunch have been brought so no eating out for me today. Not only is it healthier to eat frp, home but much easier on the pocketbook as well.
And your Monday DEMotivation:
