First, thank you all for weighing in (ha! I’m so punny!) on the last couple of posts. It was helpful to get some feedback on that, so I really appreciate it!
In other news, I went to see my mom this weekend, and we did NOT drink, EVEN THOUGH we went over to my late grandpa’s house, and I was kind of a wreck afterward. I actually poured a glass of scotch and then decided to have dinner before I drank it. And I had dinner, and then decided I didn’t “need” the alcohol. So . . .
(Although there was some butter-laden popcorn involved. But frankly, I considered that a “win” over the scotch, so I was ok with it.)
And we went to lunch on Saturday AND Sunday, and both days I ordered something reasonably healthy. (I had quiche and salad on Sunday to settle my stomach – I needed a little grease – but I did NOT have french fries, so again, a partial win there.)
This week is Exercise Week. I already planned out all my workouts for the week (even Thanksgiving Day). I have mostly exercise DVDs, and in an effort not to feel overwhelmed, I purposely only chose ones that were 30 minutes or shorter. For now, that seems more manageable, and 6 days of 30 minutes is still 3 hours of exercise this week, so I’m good with it. In a few weeks I’ll go back to 45-60 minutes, but for the moment, this is good. It’s not “all-or-nothing,” which is a HUGE improvement over my usual methodologies, so hooray! 🙂
How was your weekend?
