Yesterday was not so bad. I ate pretty well and didn't do a lot of mindless eating. In fact, I don't think any did any mindless eating.
I did not make it to the gym as planned. I was dressed first thing in the morning but somehow I let hubby talk me into going to the Cherry Hill Mall and start some Christmas shopping. It didn't take much coaxing.
I put on my Sketchers Shape-ups and each step I took at the mall was quick and purposeful. AND I made no stops at the food court.
I drank a diet Sprite and kept it moving for a good hour or so.
I came home and took a rest because rest is an important part of my physical health. When the little one came home I took her to physical therapy and used that hour as my quiet time to do some knitting and reading.
When I returned home, the kids had ordered Papa John's pizza. I had a choice of fighting the temptation and being miserable or giving in. I chose to check out how many WW points one slice would be for an XL slice. It was 9 points. I had 10 points left for the day, so it was all good. I enjoyed my slice without any guilt.
By this time in the evening I'm pretty tired. But since I took my rest in the afternoon both physically and mentally, I had just enough energy left to get in some exercise.
I stretched, jumped rope, hula-hooped and added in some bicep curls with 10lb weights for good measure.
It was a good day!
Today I'm dressed for the gym. AGAIN. Let's see if I can make it there this time.
