I started off yesterday by driving for the company. I got 2 cancellations and 3 redirects before I was able to actually pick someone up so I was VERY frustrated. I had already arrived at one of the cancellation locations so I was paid $5 for that. I thought that was nice although still frustrating.
Then I took Styled to get her hair done and I went grocery shopping for her while I was waiting. I had to overspend to get what she wanted but she paid me back so that was good. Obviously she paid me for the time as well.
After I dropped her off, I came home to eat and then went to meet the new client. She doesn’t think she needs a driver but said we can try this out and go grocery shopping next week. That’s good for me! Woo hoo! Another friend of my mother’s to drive around. Lol
After that, I drove for the company again. I had to take this one guy to the smaller Houston airport and instead of fighting the freeway, I took the shortcut I know and shaved 5 minutes off the drive so he was happy and gave me a $4 tip. Yay! On my way back, I stopped at a Starbucks to use the restroom and get coffee. They didn’t have what I normally get but made me a dark roast coffee on ice and I LOVED it! It is the best coffee I’ve had there! The weird part was this Starbucks only had a walk up (NOT an inside store) and a drive through. The guy helping me had the same name as my son, told me he would make me that coffee that I’ve never tried, and had to give me a key to use the restroom. It was a weird Starbucks! Great coffee though!!! So good that I didn’t even take a picture of it, I drank it too fast. 😂 I even used a free one I had earned from purchasing stuff at Starbucks for my mom and my client (since I don’t go there for myself very much).
I then picked up a high schooler at his school and took him home which was literally 3 blocks from my house so I stopped driving after dropping him off to make sure I would get to my sons school in time to volunteer last night. When I got home, my mom asked me if we should do anything on May 4th to remember my Dad. I’m like, I don’t know mom, what do you want to do? She said “Oh, I don’t want to celebrate. I’d rather not remember on purpose.” Umm, okay? Do whatever you want to do, I will probably be at the cemetery to see him again. She replied, “Well, he’s not there so I’m not going.” Wow mom. Okay.
So here is the best part of yesterday. It is a total non scale victory. 3 to be exact. They gave me a t-shirt since I was volunteering and I asked if it was an x-large and I was told “it is but you don’t need an x-large”. Also…I have never been able to put 2 shirts on without it looking like I painted the top one on it would be so tight. Check this out. I didn’t have any problems last night!!!
I am so happy and still on a high from that compliment and non scale victory!!! Then after I worked out, I sat on the swing in the park waiting for a friend of mine to come over and I was able to swing! It didn’t even stretch the seat out when I sat down! My friend took a short video of me on the swing. You can check it out on my Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/juliehcares/
I went to the gym and walked for 45 minutes on the treadmill. I was going to just do a dance video at home but today is weigh in day and measuring day so I wanted that workout in. I also had a good calorie day, even with being at the school where they had cookies, brownies, and muffins plus a full Italian dinner I could have eaten. I didn’t eat ANY of it! I came home and ate the food I had already cooked. Woo hoo!
Weight was 199.2 on March 26th. Weight today is 190.6!!!
Chest is down 3/4 of an inch. Waist is down 3/4 of an inch. Hips are down 3/4 of an inch. Thigh is down 1/2 inch. Upper arm is down 1/4 of an inch. Okay, that may not seem like a lot but people are starting to notice now so it must show a lot more. I’m excited!
If you are on myfitnesspal, feel free to add me as a friend. My name on there is juliehcares as well. I wasn’t very hungry again although I did drink 87 ounces of water!
Today is pretty easy. I’m driving for the company and taking my son to therapy. That’s it. My son doesn’t want to go to the gun range like I wanted to. He said he still has visions of being shot by paintball guns and isn’t ready to shoot again. Hahaha!!! If he only knew how hunting worked, right?
I hope you are having a great Saturday. Tell me what’s going on in your world!
