Lazy Saturday

TODAY (or should I say yesterday since it's officially Sunday) I had the craziest laziest terrible on my Weight Watchers day ever. I literally slept the whole day except for a few hours when I went to Target to buy some stuff for a baby shower, and then went to the baby shower for a few hours, from 3-7:30ish. I ate way too much there and then I fell asleep on the drive home and came in and kept sleeping until 10 along with the kids. (Instead of going walking because it was early enough to go.) Well Seth woke up first and Rey stayed up with him. Now here I am bright eyed and bushy tailed with them. The kids are watching a Pooh movie and I'm updating my blog.

I can't believe it's humanly possible to sleep as many hours as I do every couple of weeks on Saturday. It's like I just can't wake up and I sleep and sleep. Then I feel so guilty like I'm wasting away precious time. Then I remind myself that the body has a way of catching up on sleep whether you want to or not. I'm restoring my brain and all the time that I run around during the week.

I have been craving COFFEE all day! I'm out of flavored creamer and I can't stand coffee with milk unless it's especially cafe con leche. I even wanted to do a Starbucks run this morning for breakfast even though it's a good drive for a run. I wish we had a Starbucks somewhere close to us! I think I'm going to write to Starbucks to mention it to them and I'm going to point out that the light rail may eventually run this direction. I wonder what's the latest on that.

I'm so glad to hear when people are reading and especially when they can relate to what I'm writing. I saw a friend I hadn't seen in a long time today and she was telling me how much she enjoyed an earlier post about house cleaning. Then I got a really sweet post from a complete stranger in San Francisco that just happened upon my blog and liked it. THANKS to all of you for reading.

On a negative note. OK I won't say negative, let's just say challenging. I've had a really bad past 3 days on WW. I don't want to feel like I'm falling of the wagon but I've never had 3 consecutive bad days before. I am so on the brink of 10 pounds. It's like I get there and then I gain another pound back and I can't stick the 10 pounds. Going at this rate I never will. So I have 2 days to redeem myself before Tuesday morning weigh in. That means I have to be especially good for these next 2 days. Send me your encouraging words!

The cruise is in less than 3 months now. YES! We're going, thank goodness. I'm so glad I didn't go ahead and cancel it because things ended up working out after all. We need a family vacation and I haven't left this country in 5 years! What that means is that I'm going to have to wear a bathing suit on a beach soon and I need to keep working out!! I started adding some slow jogging to my walk and I feel really good when I do that. Hopefully it will help get rid of some of the rolls on my back but I know I have to add some good ol'fashioned aerobics for that.

Well good night readers everywhere. It's late and it's time to get us all in bed.

Hi sweet Loida! Hey girly don't be so tough on yourself. You have accomplished a whole lot on WW and their will be times when we get side tracked a little, but that is okay. Your goal is set and you will accomplished it. I believe you will and WILL. I'm so excited for your trip. I wish I was going. :-) And I'm glad you got the rest you deserved. I do that from time to time and that is okay too. Keep smiling!
