So I thought I'd check in. It's been a bit since a "real" post. I have been very busy with my youngest daughter (who is mostly better but still sinus-y), a HUGE shipment going out for our internet store, as well as being sinus-y myself.
I have been making good on my goal not to touch any of my weekly "emergency" WW points. Normally by this time in the week I'd have them half gone. The reason I haven't touched them, I believe, is because I'm paying attention to NOT using them, i.e. I'm planning much more. Traditionally, when I use those extra points, it's because it's well after my girls' bedtime and my husband and I are searching for something to shut our collective sweet tooth up. That usually ends with homemade milkshakes. But, as I had planned to not use those extra points, I didn't buy any ice cream. There are still treats in the house but instead of indulging in them, I have been planning my "treats." The past several nights for my treat I've had a Fiber One bar (either Oats & Chocolate or Mocha - YUM!) and a cup of coffee. SO GOOD, and certainly better for me than a milkshake. And guess what? I feel totally fulfilled. So there, milkshakes. Take that!
It seems I learn something new about myself each week. Planning ahead, for now, has to be my key to success. I had planned at least 3 gym workouts this week. So far I've only made it to one due to the sick kid and my own head full of snot. I do plan on going in the morning and perhaps sneaking away to the gym this weekend. I'm OK with all of that.
I'm still learning. And I'm still INTERSETED in learning. So that's got to be something, right?
I hope you're all well. I'll get to my next "30 days of photos" post in the next few days.
