Well, it's finally Friday and I could use some sleep. Last weekend we went to my parent's house for the weekend. On Saturday morning, my son thought that 4 am was a fine time to start the day. Now, at home, that would have been of little consequence, as I would have told him to go play in his room with his door shut, but at my parent's he was sharing a room with the rest of us because my brother was home. Needless to say, I was exhausted by the end of the day. That was the story of my week. All week, I thought, tonight I will get to bed early so I can get some extra sleep, but best laid plans and all, I somehow found it to suddenly be 10pm. So, all week I was tired. It was a real struggle to get up and exercise every morning, but I knew that if I was to succeed in my goals, I must get up. A few mornings, I had to abbreviate my workout to make sure I made it to work on time, but I worked out. And...it paid off...I lost weight, 2 pounds, this week and I am happy about that. Woohoo!
The best part was that by balancing portions at mealtime and working out, I was able to allow myself to have a small treat a couple of nights and still have success. It was sweet success to enjoy a small hot fudge sundae complete with whipped cream. Yum!
I work full-time outside of the home, while being a full-time mom to
an 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter. I'm also a wife to my
husband of 16 years.
I started this blog shortly after I started CVS-ing. I was
reading about everyone's plans and successes, so I decided I wanted
someplace to share my money saving adventures. Now, I use it to share about many things.
