Weight Loss Wednesday

...On Thursday. Oh well. A day late is better than never, right? It was a victorious week for me. I am down another 3.2 pounds. Yay me! Today's discussion was about "me time." It's hard for me to spend time on myself. Curly works a lot, and strange hours to boot. I'm with the kids a lot and when I'm not, I am wiped out. But I decided in the meeting to do at least 2 things that make me happy. I got in the car, called the YMCA and made a playroom reservation for Ginger so I could Zumba. Ginger hates being left, and it's hard for me to listen to her sob as I leave. But, she has a good time while she's there. So I left her without guilt and Zumba'd for a wonderful hour. And then tonight, I sewed. I found some really pretty and fun fabric for a picnic quilt, so tonight I started it. I think it's going to be lovely.

So those were my two things I did for myself today. It was restoring to my soul. I feel happy and optimistic. And also, I feel tired. But mostly I feel really good. For those who are losing weight along with me, keep up the good work! Any victory should be celebrated, so go to it!

Hooray for you!!!
Sometimes you just have to take that leap and do something for yourself. I find I am a better mommy when I do ;).
