It’s fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A
Okay do you have the melody stuck in your head yet? Good. :~)
We are celebrating my joining of the “Y”. That’s right I DID it! The husband thought I was crazy. He walked in the door from work and I said, “get you sweats on, WE’RE GOING TO THE GYM!” We packed the toddler up and hit the road. I was in a rush because the childcare center closed at 8pm and I knew signing up would take a bit of time.
I was right, we only ended up getting 20 minutes BUT we went. I promised myself I would and I DID. That’s what matters. I did a bit on the bike and played some basketball with the husband. We had a blast! You guys were all right, I can see this becoming a habit. I‘m not going to lie, I’ve tried this before and it never lasted. I always had good intentions but the routines didn’t stick. However, this time I’m involving the family and all of YOU! I feel a bit more responsibility to myself to keep it up this time. Let’s see if it does the trick! I have to admit I’m super excited.
Besides the gym, I wanted to talk about the scale. Today I happened to get on 3 different scales, 1 for my morning reading at home, 2 at my weight watchers meeting, and 3 at the doctors for my appointment. Three scales, three different times of day, three different numbers, 142.5, 141.6 and 144. Tell me again why we all allow the scale to affect us so much. I mean just look at how fickle it can be. The point I’m trying to make… One, even two scale readings should not affect our moods so much. Follow your plan, take it day-by-day, focus on the trend and, most of all, be honest with yourself. You know when you are making good choices and when you can do a bit better.
Sorry I got a bit preach there.
Here’s the menu, week 1 almost done and I still have flexies left! Good thing too, tomorrow the in-laws are coming to town and we are going to dinner. This reminds me, I may be MIA for the next few days. Between the company and traveling to our friends wedding on Saturday, I’m going to be swamped.
