Checking in on yesterday - not quite as good as the day before:
Alright...I'll tackle the eating out first - I ate out twice yesterday. Lunch wasn't my fault (oh yeah...I'm gonna make an excuse). I had brought leftover fish. I took one bite of it and realized it had turned so I picked up lunch yesterday. I think the risk of food poisoning warranted it. However, the choice could've been A LOT better and THAT'S where I'm going to be held accountable. I had 2 taquitos, refried beans and 2 forkfuls of rice. Eek! As for dinner, no excuse here except laziness. Hubby and I didn't want to cook so we ordered pizza...and breadsticks...and cinnamon sticks. Good lord! Hubby and I talked to eachother about it and while it's obvious we're both enablers for poor eating, we've got to stop it!
Working out. Ummm...right. What's exercise mean again? Legs were feeling fine...just didn't get it done. That's all I'm saying about this because it's like beating a dead horse.
Snacking - Overall, not bad. Had some chips at work. No snacks otherwise and chips are now gone so I won't be doing that today.
I have a parent/teacher conference at Maddie's school today. I can't remember if I mentioned this previously but her teacher has been out since October due to family health issues. She had one sub through Christmas break and now another sub through the end of the year. No, I have not been real happy about this but Maddie seems to like this new one quite a bit. Hopefully this'll be a productive meeting but I'm not holding my breath. For every other class, they had conferences at the end of October (we didn't because it wasn't clear when or if her teacher would be coming back and the sub obviously didn't know anything to do it) and now they're having a secondary conference where they've gotten to know your child better and would be able to tell you if they had improved or whatever since the last conference. Obviously, we've been cheated in this regard. I'm trying to go in with an open mind but I've been pretty annoyed about it all year.
My brother-in-law (wow...this is turning into a long, random post) is doing fine...thanks to all who have asked. He ended the clinical trial this past week but they're going to let him keep taking the meds for another 6 months. I'm not sure if they'll re-evaluate at that time and allow him to stay on it if he wants to but at least he can for the next 6 months...I think he'll be OK during this time as the meds have worked really well for him.
That's where we're at with everything lovelies. Tomorrow is March 1st and for those of you paying attention, that is weigh day. It's odd that I picked a Thursday to weigh in as my weigh in days have historically been Mondays but I liked the idea of doing it on the 1st. I'm scared to death to step on the scale and see what kind of damage I've done. There I said it. But we all have to face the music sometime and for me, that music is tomorrow. Expect another down and out post then.
I promise someday the positivity will return. Just not sure when. In an attempt to lighten the mood, I give you a Leap Year Giggle:
