Week 1 was good

I noticed my ticker gave me the dreaded warning that it hasn't been updated in 80 days.  *SIGH*  I'm updating it today to get rid of that awful message and that's all I'll say about that.

I did weigh myself this morning.  The trouble is I forgot to weigh myself last week so I'm not really sure where I started.  According to MFP, the last weight I had on there was 158 so that's what I'll take.  This morning I was 156.5.  So that -1.5 from last week and still 1.5 from my lowest.  At least I'm back on a downward trend.

I didn't eat terrible this weekend but wasn't on my best game either.  I had macaroni and cheese for dinner last night if that gives you an idea.  But I also made some really good choices out as well.  I'm probably not going to make it to the gym this week.  Friends are watching my girls today and tomorrow so I need to pick them up right when I get off.  I may try to hit a Zumba class but we'll see.  I leave for SC on Wednesday.  My sister and I are going to hit up the Y at least once while we're there and there'll be beach going and what not.  But there will also be some more indulgence so I'm just hoping to maintain this loss when I get back.

I went to Goodwill this weekend to pick up some books for the girls for the airplane and snagged 2 Size 12 skirts off the rack.  I'm wearing one this morning...a cute little solid blue skirt (a la Pan Am Air).  Gotta tell ya...feeling a little sassy in it and the best part is it was only $2.50.  I haven't tried on the other skirt yet but it's a wrap around thingie that I gotta figure out.  :)

Work will be busy the next couple days as I get ready to leave on vacay.  I've got meetings from 8-1 today...just solid.  Oh well...After Wednesday, I've got a whole week and a half free of this place.  How about vacation Monday DEMotivator?

I have gone in Goodwill several times and I don't seem to have any luck finding things I like. Maybe I should try the other across town. Have fun on your vacation!!

Work just before vacation is insane for sure. Fun stuff awaits once the work is done.

Downward trends are great way to arrive at the start of a vacation, almost as good as ending vacation on the same trend line... Not easy for me, but I bet you can show us how it is done.
