93 Monday v Friday
Monday, July 22, 2013
I always loved Friday - it's the beginning of the weekend. It's the end of the work week. I can do whatever I want for the weekend. I can sleep in. I can stay up late. No rules, no restrictions, YIPPEE!!!!!
I always hated Monday - it's the end of the weekend. It means I have to go back to work. It means I have to get up early. I have to follow a schedule, go to bed early so I can get up early. I can't sleep in. I can't stay up late. Not to mention I get to see/feel the damage of all my recklessness over the weekend.
Maybe it's a sign of getting older? But now, I don't hate Monday. I still love Friday, but Monday isn't far behind.
Monday is the beginning of a new week. Monday is a new day. Monday I get a clean slate. Monday I get a new box of crayons. I get to choose what I want to put on my slate. I can make it bright and cheery if I choose. I can fill it with colors of energy if I choose. Or colors of those great veggies and fruit I am eating. I can put aside last week's slate and make this one anything I choose.
Monday's are no longer doomsday - they are days of hope. Yippee! But as long as I am working, I will still cherish my Friday's!
Just an update - I had a great weekend. My son's Special Olympic softball team took 1st place in their division in the State Tournament on Saturday. He even scored a run! What fun.
During the break I snuck away and went shopping (we were in a different town- so different stores) I found some skirts on clearance which I bought - in the regular size department!!! Yippee!!! What a good feeling.
Top that off with a date - which may actually go somewhere! Someone who I have known for a couple years, who is now looking at me in a different light. Who woulda thought? Someone could see beyond the flaws that I see! Imagine that!
Then Sunday was my little Lily's 5th birthday party. I even had cake AND a scoop of ice cream - AND stayed in my calorie count for the day.
The downside of the weekend - no walks - forgot to put Mr Fitbit on Sunday morning - but caught it around 3pm. My steps are soooooooo low for the weekend. No where near 10,000. I was a slacker in the exercise department. But damn - I feel great regardless!
Wow, who is this girl under this weight? She looks pretty good! She has confidence! She enjoys her life and it shows! Why did I hide her? I am going to do my best to make sure she doesn't get hidden away again!
