Day 158: Good Morning Minnesota

I had such a nice visit with my mom and dad.  They were here for 7 days.  It went by too quickly and made me realize again that I wish I lived in Seattle.  I know it isn't possible right now, but I still miss that place.

We had a crazy time too, Hava had her first dance recital, Gabe turned 3 and had his birthday party.  Gabe got to go to his first Twins game and Hava had her first dinner at a Hibachi Grill.  Lots of fun was had by all!

I didn't eat well or exercise while my family was here.  It is amazing how I just revert when my family is around, I eat bad, I have terrible will power and I lack motivation!  Yuck.  So, today I woke up early and did a two mile run, and came back and got some stuff done before the kids woke up.  It was a nice way to start the day.  I am a morning person, but I love my sleep.   So I just need to get my sleep earlier so I can wake up and enjoy the morning.  I just need to remember that tomorrow when I am waking up early.

I lost two pounds last week and was so excited to report that.  However, I am back up.  Holding strong at 20 pounds lost but having a hard time getting past that.  I am not calling it a plateau because I am not really trying all that hard.  I want to, but don't.  However, today I ran.  I am not going to sabotage myself and say I will do this, this and this, because I have a bad track record of doing that.  So I will try to be better and do better.

Heres to a new start (again)
Weight 192

So true about changing our habits around others! But congrats on getting up and going for a run, that shows your dedication. For some reason I get stuck at certain numbers too, like 20 lbs. Maybe it is mental? Or maybe the body just readjusting? Either way, keep up the good work!

I am with ya on the whole sabotaging thing...its like the pendulum swings wildly and predictably...if we don't intentially stop the swing from being so wide, we find ourselves right back on the other extreme.

So glad you had a fabulous visit with your mom and dad...family, loved ones, and love is why we're doing this after all, right?

luv ya. :)
