Monday Morning

I have been able to keep that emotional eating under control. It's not as if I ate all the bad stuff that's at the house (I actually don't keep much bad stuff at the house....easy for me since my husband is also trying to lose weight). BUT my portions. At dinner, I ate TWO HUGE portions...QUICKLY! One portion was ok...but two was overboard. It just happened because I was upset while we ate and I shovelled and kept shovelling without thinking. :-)

We did our ride on Saturday. It was wonderful weather. I was comfortable in sweatpants, a tee shirt and a sweatshirt. Todd only wore sweatpants and a teeshirt. I had asked him if he needed a sweatshirt and he was like, "no...I'll be fine. Yeah, famous last words...he was cold! Regardless, it felt really good to be out on my bike! Fun activity!

We ended up going out to dinner.....for our weekly eat out. (ok, this week we'll end up eating out again....he has a board meeting to attend on I'll probably go out to lunch with mom and dad while he eats at the board meeting.) We got home and I putzed around the house for a bit...and was simply relaxing. I just felt like I needed to move. SOOO I got up and cleaned the living room and office. A BIG in I moved all the furniture cleaning.

Sunday morning I woke up and with the time change I had lots of time before church. I made pancakes for breakfast and then I spent a good deal of time in the kitchen organizing and cleaning that from top to bottom. (Yeah, I don't know what struck me...but it struck so I ran with it). I followed up my morning cleaning spree with 45 minutes of heavy exercise. It was a great workout!!! After church, Todd finished hanging the screen door (we had started it on Saturday but had to stop to do that ride....because we had committed to do it at a certain time). I ran and got water, and dropped some stuff in storage. Then we ran to town, went to Sam's and the grocery store. Got home, had dinner and relaxed the rest of the night. Oh yeah, I rode the exercise bike for a short time....15 minutes or so.

Set the alarm early this morning...and I resisted temptation. I didn't reset it when it went off. I got up and exercised for that hour! So I'm all exercised up for the day. However, I get off work at 3 today. Todd doesn't work until 6 tonight. SOOO we have a gap of time. I will need an hour or so to make dinner...which we want to eat at that still gives us 1 1/2 hours to go for a hike or something....which Todd wants to do!

My weight was a bit up today. I'm wondering if it is water. I had a bag of 100 cal pack chips...and I had sauerkraut (ok, I love sauerkraut...does that make me weird?????). Both of those things are really high sodium. I'm just determined to be good my sodium and all that because I want the scales to be nice to me for my official weigh in tomorrow night!
