|The view from my napping place|
I'm trying to get back to a little more of my normal routine, as I have been feeling pulled in too many different directions lately. I feel the need to put things in order a little more. When I don't have meetings, my days are kind of flipped -- I get up early and do my "me" things before going into the office in the afternoons and teaching in the evenings. I like the quiet and having time in the house with just the kitties. The house stays so much nicer when I have alone time to tidy up.
My Tuesday evening class has ended (though I still have to grade some of their assignments), so I will have another free evening. I went to a Weight Watchers meeting with my favorite leader and weighed in. This leader is the reason I have enjoyed Weight Watchers so much more this time around, and I haven't been able to get to her meetings. Most Weight Watchers leaders are too chirpy and cheerful. Tina keeps it real, and I feel like she's in it with me and knows how hard it is sometimes.
I knew I would be up -- everyone has been bringing over food, which is nice, but when I was already feeling emotional and tired, I didn't have as much willpower. That kind of food also is saltier than the food I make for myself. My goals for this week are simple: Track every day no matter what, and get in some kind of workout every day.
Today I hit the pool for a swim -- this was only the second time since the outdoor summer swimming season ended that I got into the pool. I only did half an hour, but it felt good anyway. On the way home I stopped at a different grocery store and stocked up on fruits, veggies, yogurt, and other foods that fit well into my Points. My husband is getting a cold so I picked up the ingredients for my Chicken Pho soup, which is the best thing in the world when you are sick.
I came home, put all the food away and reorganized the fridge. Then I had a snack and took a short nap. I'm way behind on sleep and I think it is going to take a while to catch up.
I'm hoping to be caught up at work by the end of this week. I have an exciting new product I was sent to review but I'm not touching it until all my grading is done. Ditto the new camera setup I bought so I could take Gwynnie Bee outfit photos by myself.
