Sabotage? I think not!
Riley is doing amazing! Seriously. Incredible. The difference in her in just the last few months is unbelievable. Her speech. Her social skills. Pretty much everything. I was terrified at taking on multiplication again after the summer since it was so hard in 3rd grade but it feels as though she assimilated that information over the break. She’s doing great!
I’m doing wonderful, too! I’ve lost nearly 15 pounds in the last month or so. I’m really close to a milestone! I’m wearing pants I haven’t been able to squeeze into for months and they’re comfy!
Then there was the weekend…
Oh dear. Run, run, run. Busy, busy, busy. Tyler had his play performance on Friday night then two showing on Saturday. Riley and I went to a symphony concert Saturday evening. (It was a fundraiser for the ranch she where she rides and they host the Special Olympics horse show.) I ended up having dinner at 4pm at Steak N Shake. Single burger with fries and a diet coke. Then everyone… both kids AND my parents… ordered ice cream! Ugh! It’s soooooo yummy! And I sat there sipping my diet coke.
So of course I had to have a snack at the concert (concession profits also went to the ranch). Thankfully they provided some veggie chips (surprisingly good), fruit and bottled water.
Then Tyler’s play let out right after our concert (at adjoining venues, conveniently) so he just HAD to go to McD’s to hang out with the other actors some more. So here I am at McD’s with an excited 16 year old, exhausted (and grumpy) 9 year old, my very tired daddy, and me. Again, all these calories are just flying around me! Did you know McD’s is now putting calorie counts next to every item on the menu? I love it! Fruit ‘n’ Yogurt Parfait!
I’m so proud of myself! I just went over 1200 calories for the day!
Today wasn’t much better. I didn’t even get lunch today! Busy, busy, busy. Run, run, run. What’s a gal to do? I’m sure I’ll make up for it tomorrow!
But with everything against me and temptation abounding and stress through the roof, I stuck with my desire to be healthier and fit into more flattering clothing. Sabotage will just have to try harder next weekend! (I don’t mean that as a challenge… really!)
