Yes, I have cheat meals!

I was so good last week and didn’t go over my calories on any day.

So what do I do? I eat Girl Scout cookies. I ate an entire sleeve of Thin Mints (17 cookies). And a cup of milk. And 3 chocolates. But I got right back on track. That’s the key. Yes, you will have a day or a time where you eat something unhealthy. Just get back to it. I did a 30 minute exercise video from YouTube for my exercise for the day. https://youtu.be/lBP3DOCX72Y

That didn’t make up for the hundreds of calories I ate and I wouldn’t expect it to. I did do something to counteract my extra calories though and that’s what counts. Healthy people eat bad things sometimes. It’s a part of life! You can’t get down on yourself or say you’re fat or bloated or ruined your diet over one thing, meal, or day. Okay? So you missed the gym all of last week? Who cares? Just go back! You ate half a chocolate cake in one sitting? That’s okay, just get right back to eating healthier foods. We got this! Until your perception changes and you don’t beat yourself up over excess calories, you can’t win and we are going to win!

I went to the dentist yesterday and was fine until I left (of course), stupid teeth. Now I have to go back later this week if I can find the time. I also went to Discount Tire to get the stupid low tire sensor fixed and since I go there too much and know the manager (not really but I am a good pretender), he gave it to me for $35 instead of $60. I’ll take it! I was happy to not have that little light on constantly so maybe I will actually know when my tires are low again. I went to Costco and bought food and paper stuff for the month. I think I shocked my Mom when I walked in with Costco bag of toilet paper and paper towels. There are definitely a lot in the house now. Like so many we don’t know where to put it. She’ll find a place I’m sure. I then came home and watched 2 series of Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords on Netflix instead of cooking or going to the gym. I love this show! It’s also telling me where not to stay when I eventually go there. πŸ˜‚ It was a good day for a Monday.

Today I take Miss Priss on her errands and also take the couple to dinner. I also have to exercise and eat much better today, stay in my calories. I have to stay perfect the rest of the week but I’m not stressing if I don’t. That would be the old way of thinking. I am thinking of changing my weigh day to Thursday as it seems that Thursday is my lowest weight day of the week and that’s always a good thing! πŸ˜€ I felt a bit lazy yesterday and I don’t want to stop my progress so I am at it!

I didn’t go to sleep until midnight last night. Not good when you’re supposed to get up at 5:30am! This morning, I turned off that alarm and the 6am alarm and overslept until 6:45! My son was still asleep too so I open his door, tell him the time, hear him say oh shit, and I run out to the car to warm it up. We are supposed to leave by 7 for whatever it is that he and his friends do until school starts at 7:40. For some reason, it’s 55 degrees out there this morning so I was a bit chilly in my boxers and sleeping shirt to drive him. I let the heater warm up and when he gets in the car at 6:59, he says, “geez Mom, it’s hot in here!” Well, too bad, I was cold! On the way to school, I have my regular oldies station on and Queen comes on. He asks what’s this song (this is when it is first starting). I tell him after a few beats that it’s Another One Bites the Dust. He turns it up and starts singing along! Yep, my work here on music is done. My 12 year old likes Queen. {drops mic}.

Speaking of, I have to say, I am loving this new generation. At least my son and his friends. They like 70’s and 80’s music, video games, and don’t feel the need to be out all night. Now, I know that could change, don’t get me wrong! I hope not! He wants to stay up all night playing games with his friends. He started his own religion called the meme religion and of course, it’s all about memes. I’m not allowed to join because their favorite meme is a RickRoll and every time they start it up, I start singing the song – Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley. Yeah, so I’m not allowed to join. Darn it! That was going to be my new way of life! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ https://youtu.be/oHg5SJYRHA0 This link is to the song, not the meme.

I hope you all have a good day. I can’t wait to be home after running errands with Miss Priss to go to the gym and after the couples dinner to get more sleep!

I forgot to mention the cats. Yesterday they decided they wanted on the kitchen window shelf and threw done all of my moms crap off of them. Yay for cats!

  2. I love your way of thinking, Julie!! I need some Girl Scout cookies in my life haha. That’s so cute that your son sang along to the music. Hopefully he stays the same until he graduates HS! β™‘ & LOL about the cats… mine do the same thing. It’s hard to even have decorations on the coffee table. πŸ˜‚
