I have someone coming to measure for flooring today. And so it begins. I took 7 days off starting next Tuesday which will give me 12 days to get stuff packed, tossed, given away, and painted. Then the realtor. Somewhere in there, I will also need to see about loan pre-approvals. And 40 other things that I am forgetting right now.

But first and foremost, I need to take care of me. I need to remain diligent about eating correctly. I did a hard stare down last night with the cinnamon bread that my daughter requested from Costco on Saturday. It is the first time that I have been tempted (repeatedly in a 30 minute period) and nearly cracked in the 10 weeks I have been doing this. I opted for some bing cherries - which were super tasty by the way - and made it through until dinner was ready.

Stay focused on the goal!

Ah! The joy of waking up on a Saturday, getting on the scale, and being able to record a drop in weight. Beautiful.

And after a tough week, too! My start to the week was relaxing (spa retreat with my sister), but relaxing approached boredom as she then sat for six hours watching TV. I reminded myself that it was her weekend. I wanted to go by myself and walk (even though it was raining/snowing), but I didn't want to be rude. It is so hard for me to go to the mountains and not hike or do other activities. I can watch TV any time - the mountains tend to rejuvanate me and put me back on track. I did stay focused on eating right, so no penalties there.

I came back to three days of crazy at work. Too much to do, too little information compiled, too many decisions to make. I worked 14 hours on Thursday and I get to work the weekend, too. I never made it to the gym. I am sad about that.

I will make up for it today, though. I am mowing, shopping for a graduation dress for Megs, food drive and spaghetti fixing shopping at Costco, and working on cleaning out the office/den. I can't believe I was volunteered to make spaghetti for 75 people on Wednesday. I need to remind myself that prep school is almost over (she graduates 7 days from now) and there won't be anymore cupcakes, room parties, or school-related potlucks.

Wow! I have so much to do before she graduates! I need to get busy! Have a great weekend FS!

Barely hanging on to my routine because I am so busy. I am still managing to record my food, but it has been a challenge. I spent two days in the mountains but didn't really do anything. It was raining/snowing the entire time and that made it difficult to get out and really do anything. I did enjoy some outdoor time yesterday in the sunshine, but I never made it to the gym.

Today, our wellness committee brought in a local organic grocer to talk to us about foods - primarily organic, chemical/anti-biotic free, and non-GMO. I was astonished to find out the percentage of our grains that have been modified. I never thought of the soybean as a GMO. While I don't always buy organic, I do buy primarily raw foods and typically make meals from scratch. It is the only real way to understand what is in the food I eat. So - I definitely have room for improvement, but I also wasn't too terrified to eat my lunch.

Tomorrow is filled with meetings, training, and silly things like that. I hope to really accomplish some completed chores this weekend. Gotta move this Goliath toward sale. Onward and downward.
