coulda, woulda, shoulda

Monday, December 23, 2019

The really good news is I lost 0.4 when I was worried that I could gain due to several days of over eating but thankfully not too far off and I did exercise all but one day during the week. But still I can't help but think how much I might have lost if only... I know that I'll be off on Christmas day but I'm going to do my best to make it just the one day and hopefully not too far over the top. I am still more than 8 pounds above what I was before Halloween. Kicking myself mentally so that I hopefully don't do that to myself again no matter what. It was all due to self pity party when felt unloved by son(s). You have to love yourself more than that. Lesson learned but also I'm proud that I continued to log on here and knew I'd pick-up the pieces.
So went to gym and rode bike for an hour. Ok so the gym has shorter hours on 24th and 26th and of course closed on the 25th. But I was checking today and it looks like and when I asked one of the girls up front they agreed that the water fit class was going to be held on both days. I never understood why when we had a Monday holiday that the class was canceled on Sat. I mean really why no water fit class 2 days before Labor Day? Except for schools, banks and government most places work on Labor day and even the ones that are closed Labor day are open on Sat. It just really seems strange to me. I plan to go tomorrow and I hope there is an instructor but if not I will still be there and walk in the pool if no class.
My son is kind of funny to me like today when he wanted chips with his sandwich and I asked what kind he wanted. He wanted to know what we had. He gets a bag for school lunch everyday and so should know about what is available. I said he just needed to say what he wanted and he wouldn't because I wouldn't list what we had. I hate to say this but he is a lot like me in ways. If my mom said it once she told me thousands of times that I'd cut off my nose to spite my face. hummm
Countdown is coming up fast and hope you are all ready for the holidays. I'm about as ready as I'm going to get for Christmas. Love to all of you.

    You're running a restaurant now? Were I on the wait staff, I'd surely get tired of listing all the side dishes and salad dressings.
    Keep up the exercising and that eight pounds will be history soon. emoticon emoticon

    WooHoo!! A loss is a loss. There's no sense in beating yourself's over and done...tomorrow is another never gave kept pushing. You know...all those trite things that we all say, but you what...they work.

    My grandma used to say that kids walk on your toes when they're toddlers and walk on your heart when they're grown. As a mother of 5, I can certainly attest to that. Some of mine are pushing middle age and can cause pain.

    Hope you can meet your pool goals if the gym hours will cooperate.

    If you don't post over the next couple of days, I want to wish you a nice Christmas Eve and a very Merry Christmas Day. emoticon emoticon
