I am having a good day. I was up earlier than I wanted to be this morning. I set the alarm and woke up before it went off. I am sleeping in a different bed and that is always hard for me. Only 3 nights this time house sitting, so no big disruption in my life.
I am so thankful I am able to use Bill's car, because I would have had to cancel 2 appointments and not go home at all to see Snickers while I was here. He is so spoiled!!
He is a good companion for me, so I do spoil him. I don't have any children and he is my little guy...not too little though!! He is over 11 pounds. I need to play with him with his laser today and get him some exercise. He is strictly an indoor cat...so he does a lot of sleeping. Especially when I am not there.
I did well yesterday on my food intake. I only went over a little on my calories, but was way over on my fat intake. It happens every time I am away from home. Too many different foods that I don't buy and love to it. I eat in moderation at other people's homes...but still it is usually higher in fat. I figure it is not a big deal if I don't do it a lot. I still watch pretty close, but I like to have a snack in the evening. I didn't pick a lowfat snack last night. Nacho corn chips and french onion dip!! Oh, but it was worth it!! And I was only over 7 grams on my fat. I know...trying to justify!! Anyway, I weigh in on Monday...or at least I have my DPP class. But it is a cooking class, so it won't be at the YMCA as usual. Not sure if we will be weighing in that day. I am going to be good this weekend anyway, because I am keeping track on my scale now.
I ate a good breakfast today and some trail mix, so am not hungry for lunch yet. I might wait until I go home to get the mail. I have some lower fat options there!!
I should have a netflix movie in the mail, so I am going to go home and watch it. I can eat lunch and play with Snickers, too. I need to get busy on some of my challenges for my co-leadership of my team. They are not getting done in a week. Does it still count?? I have done some of them, just need to spark mail one of the other co-leaders and ask her a few things.
My weight is going down and I am on track for the 25 pound challenge I am in that ends on September 30. I hope by then I will be able to score that challenge and see who is the winner!!
I am not sure if I will exercise today. I am not swimming, but will probably go tomorrow morning at either 8 am or 11:15 am. Then I have an appointment to see my psychiatrist. I haven't seen him since April. He will be surprised to see how much weight I have lost!!
I think he will also be pleased to know the medication he took me off that helped me gain over 100 pounds, is finally out of my system. The new combination is working and I am doing well. Next month their office will be in a new location closer to downtown. It will be nice, because I can make my appointments when I am at PLUK and save the extra trip. It is not that far away from my apartment, but I usually have to schedule the appointment when I have nothing else going on that day. That leaves out Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, because those are the days I volunteer during the year.
Well, I am going to earn some spark points and check my email.
Have a great day and remember...it is what you make it, so make it great!!
