Day Four Hundred-Eighteen…

I went out to a Halloween party last night and had lots of fun. My husband was Groucho Marx and I was a pirate…

It’s funny how the little things really take me by surprise. I could go to a party store and buy a costume without worrying that they wouldn’t have something to fit me.  It has been a long journey but the truth is everything still feels brand new.

I said no to this today… I said yes to this today…

On a sad note, after the party, I realized that someone stole my jacket. It’s true, I went to a bar in Northport Village to see a friend’s band, and had a great time. But at the end of the evening, it turned out that someone had left with my jacket and my phone was in the pocket. Thankfully, the next day the person returned the phone but kept the jacket. The thing is this is the jacket my husband bought me as a surprise gift a year ago. I was so happy about because I could finally fit into a regular size…

Nice surprise
I love this jacket.

I will really miss it.

On the brighter side now that Halloween is this week, I am going to do something with baking pumpkins… but I don’t know what it will be yet. I’ll keep you posted.

Day Four Hundred-Sixteen…

Happy 16th Birthday David! We had a party tonight to celebrate our son’s special day. We had the family over and had so much fun. I am very happy to say, David felt loved and that’s what a birthday is all about.

In terms of being on plan… it was a challenging day. It began with professional development, (I was attending not facilitating) and then, of course, there was the party.  Professional development comes with an assortment of snacks. With the party? Well, lasagna and birthday cake of course.

I’m happy to say I did not have any candy, and I was very strategic about what I ate. I used very few points and “saved up” for dinner. I did really enjoy what I ate and now I just feel good.  Will I get to goal? I don’t know, I really have no idea but I hope so. I did not reach my fitness goal, I only went to spin one time this week. I did recover my points from my overindulgence from last Saturday. I am rolling over 8 SmartPoints. I have been planning and tracking.

I will let you know how I did!
