02 December 2015

My son's Christmas concert went well last night. We actually had seats and it was very enjoyable. It's our last elementary program, so it was kind of sad, but at least we won't have to deal with that chaos anymore. :)

Tonight we have nothing going on so I'm actually going to try to take 30 mins to myself and do a workout. My eating has not been good, so if I can get the workouts back in maybe it will balance somewhat or I'll stop eating so much junk because of the workouts. One can hope.

Friday I will be off work to prep for my work Christmas party. I have some desserts and appetizers to get ready and a few things to pick up at the store, so not too much, but I'm glad I took the day. The person who's been helping this year has taken on a lot and it's definitely helped me to de-stress, but now I don't know what we still need and I've asked, but she doesn't tell me much, so hopefully I'm not running around picking things up before the party on Saturday. I also have to go to the thrift shop to see if I can find an 80's outfit (that's the theme of the party). If I don't find anything I'm not too worried about it, I honestly don't think too many people will participate with the theme.

That's it for me for now. I hope everyone has a great hump day!!

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! I love Thanksgiving, just the time with family to relax and enjoy the food and company is great. There always ends up being some tension somewhere along the line, but usually not too bad. It's a short week this week for me, so I'm definitely thankful for that. :)

I had a great weekend and it really geared me up for the week. I spent time with a great friend, watched one of our favorite movies, went to a craft fair with my daughter, shopped a bit with both my kids, got the few outdoor Christmas decorations put up, and finished a test in one of my classes. I didn't eat the best or get exercise in over the weekend, which is the only bad thing about it, but I did try to keep my snacking to a minimum and walked around quite a bit. I'm hoping that with the long weekend coming up I may find some motivation to exercise, but this cold weather always puts me in a funk where I just want to snuggle under a blanket and not move until spring. I know if I get up and going I'll enjoy it, I just have to find the want to do it again.

I also need to get back to a good eating routine. I need to stop eating junk and second helpings and mindfully eat my food. Thanksgiving is usually a bad time for that, but I don't typically eat too much then amazingly. But, if we take any leftover pie home that's where I'll do poorly. I am thinking I will try to drop off any leftover pie at work for the weekend shift before we even get home. We're doing a dinner on Thanksgiving, then one on Saturday, so I'll have my fill of yummy foods and desserts and I don't need leftovers.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!!

TGIF!! I hope everyone is feeling as happy as I am that it's Friday! I've been busy at work and it's felt like a week full of Monday's and I'm busy at home too, so I'm ready for the weekend to get here. Not that I won't be busy then too, but at least I'll get to have some fun. :)

Tomorrow my daughter and I were going to babysit our nieces with my SIL, but then we found out the in-laws were only bringing 1 of the 3 and they are taking her with them to the craft show they're doing. So, instead of traveling all the way to the craft show (an extra hour on top of the hour to babysit already), we're just going to wait and see them at Christmas. They're people who try to make it difficult to see them and then try to make you feel bad about it, but I'm over it. I can't rearrange my life at the last minute to see them. So instead of doing that my daughter and I are going to a local craft fair, which has become tradition for us, and then shopping for Christmas concert outfits for both kids. Then later that night I'm going to a movie with a friend that I only see a couple of times per year, so I'm really looking forward to that. Sunday will just be my grocery, laundry, homework, and general catch up day. Maybe I'll even manage to get some exercise in this weekend too. I need it, and haven't been doing it, so if I would at least get something done on the weekend it's better than nothing.

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving next week and I'm not stressing about the food too much. I have a stomach condition and if I overeat I'll be completely miserable, so luckily when I'm with family away from home I don't tend to overdo it. If I'm at home that's a completely different story unfortunately and I've been overeating a lot lately and my stomach has been hurting. You'd think my stomach feeling terrible would be enough for me to quit doing it, but I haven't changed my ways yet. My goal through the holidays though is to keep recording as much as I can and hopefully that will help keep me in check.

Well, I've rambled on enough. That's what happens when you don't journal for a week. :) I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
