It's been an extremely busy week and I've been on an emotional roller coaster. I've been running around non-stop, cleaning whatever I can get my hands on, and Christmas shopping thrown in for some fun. Thanksgiving is stressing me out big time and I'm finding it hard to just let it go.
Goal 1: Lose 20 pounds - My weigh in this morning showed 313.6 pounds which is a total of 3 pounds this week and 21.8 pounds lost in 10 weeks. It's been 8 years since I've been under 315 pounds and I'm ecstatic. If I keep up my average weight loss for the next 6 weeks, then I will be 300 pounds for the coming year. How awesome would that be?
Goal 2: Read more to the kiddos - It seems as though Christmas books are the favorite right now. We have read everyday this week. They are really enjoying the time we spend doing this. I'm so glad that I made this a goal for myself.
Goal 3: Exercise for at least 20 minutes for 4 days - So, I didn't exercise the conventional way this week. For the past 5 days I have spent 2 hours per day cleaning our garage. When I started on Monday there wasn't even a path to walk into the garage. 10 hours and 12 trash bags later, we have a semi cleaned garage! Things are organized, tools are put in tool boxes, the dust is swept, and I can finally get into the deep freezer. I call that success! If the hubby trashes it up (as he normally does) then my mug shot will be plastered all over the nightly news for murder.
Today is my niece's 4th birthday! Happy Birthday Lorelai, I love you so much!
