Friday and I am excited!

Friday, May 30, 2014

Wow the week disappeared! And now the weekend is here. I got on the scale today and was a half pound lighter! YEAH!!!! I have been working so hard. My blood sugars are still good, up slightly but still good! I am sleeping better, and having less pain. So I am HAPPY!

Oh wow, one week until graduation here. Then two weeks until we go on vacation. I am excited for that! It was nice that since it is the end of the school year and my son missed a couple days of school, he didn't have any homework besides reading! I was so happy for him. He fell asleep early so my husband and I decided to have the same idea and stock up on some ZZZZ's early ourselves. We needed it. We usually get to bed late and get up early.

I made an incredible mushroom soup last night when I was futzing around in the kitchen. Everyone was surprised how good it was. I took it as a compliment from my husband when he said it wasn't what he expected and it was better. I made sure to not over eat.

Today's plan...and this weekend.....Drink more water! I already drink a lot of water. But I want to drink more because I feel better. Exercise! Exercise! Exercise! I get motivated by exercise, it brings my mood up and I feel like I accomplish something for myself that day. So, while one son works all weekend, the other has a comedy bit at a talent show and friends to hang out with before graduation, and my husband is on call....I will give myself some extra time working out! My youngest loves to work out with me. He uses the stability ball when I am on the bike and vise versa. He loves being an iron man athlete. He doesn't go overboard, just has fun exercising under my supervision. And I get a work out partner! It is funny how he gets all sad faced that my belly is shrinking. I told him it is still there, just smaller! And that makes me healthier so I can spend more time with him!

So with a rough week behind me, and as my mom would say...kissing my sad spot and getting glad....I move on to this weekend. I will enjoy the sun, the exercise I am able to get, and the time with my youngest son. I think we will start making a to go list for our camping trip that is coming up.

Lots to do! Plan is: Have a great productive weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
