This morning I had planned to sleep in a bit, but when I rolled over and saw my daughter's big eyes staring me down, I knew it was time to get up. I took care of some business on the computer while she cleaned up her room and picked up some things from the living room...Santa's pending arrival is a good motivator to get picked & cleaned up!
After a bit I made breakfast, did some dishes, did a few things around the house, and then I was off to take a walk. I walked my normal 3-mile loop pretty fast. I then went to Wal-Mart for a few groceries, Food 4 Less for some flowers for the table for my mom, and Home Depot for some pansies for her from my dad. While I was out I bought a banana, water, and some carrots because I was hungry and had not brought anything with me. By the time I got home I was feeling rushed from the crowds, tired, and hungry. I ate a bit of this and that, and then finally realized I needed to stop before I did too much damage. I have not eaten anything since and am not super hungry for dinner. My mother-in-law and my husband's cousin should be here in a few hours and we will not eat until 6:30pm or 7pm. I probably won't have too much...we'll see. I have already earned 9pp and the night is still young. I know all of my extra activity has helped to work off some of my extra eats. I am hoping to maintain or lose a little for next week's weigh in...the last weigh in of this year...last year during this week I gained over 5 pounds, so anything less than that will be bueno!
Onto Day 123...Christmas!
