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
a 10 year old son and 6 year old daughter. I'm also a wife to my
husband of 14 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. I'm working on adding
some regular "features" to the blog as well as continuing to share my
money saving adventures and participating in some recipe exchanges.
