I woke up at 5:15 am this morning. I don't know why. That's the second time I've done that in a week. I usually try to go back to sleep when I do that but I couldn't. It's no biggie, I will just be working out earlier and then going to me meeting as usual after breakfast.
My workouts are going fantastic. I lost another 1 1/2 pounds! I am only 9 pounds away from my goal now. I think I need to post a picture of me. The weight loss is very noticeable. I can fit into some jeans I couldn't wear for about 2 years. I'm proud of myself. I have been really watching my carbs too. It's hard for me to do because I love bread so much. But I've upped my protein. I'm also watching the sodium and I've noticed that little water weight gain has gone down tremendously.
Tee went for her job interview (she scheduled it online) and they told her they were doing no hiring. Just layoffs. So they will keep her application on file. It's all good, the right job will be put in her path. She is just doing the footwork. It's hard for her not to panic. For some reason I feel completely calm about things. I am usually the one to worry and freak out over money but I just feel like it will all work out.
Emotionally I was always the one who did all the leaning. Lately I feel much more balanced emotionally. I am continuing with my Alanon meetings and with watching my diet I really feel it's helping tremendously. I was always a sugar binge kind of gal. Now that I've pretty much removed white sugar from my diet I am on a much more even keel. Just steady.. No ups and downs. At least not every day anyway.. lol
I am in PMS right now so I ate a few gummy bears last night and a candy cane. I still have them left from Christmas. They tasted really good and I feel fine this morning. Usually I'm groggy after too much sugar. Maybe because I'm not doing it all the time now? Anyway I'm grateful.
Today is my official weigh in day and I was excited to see I went down again. I am working out 6 days a week now. This is only the second week of that, I hope I can continue. I want to get off this last 9 pounds in about 2 months. If it comes off faster I won't complain but I have to maintain this way of life now so it doesn't come back. That's a little scary.
I filed my taxes and I'm not getting as much money as I expected but it's all good. I am grateful to be getting a refund at all. I've owed the IRS for the past 5 years or so. It's wonderful to be getting money from them for a change.
This weekend is the superbowl! I can't wait. We have no big plans but I'm looking for some good recipes. GO CARDINALS!
That's it for now. Hope you all are having a great week so far. I'm off to work out and eat breakfast. I'll try to stop by and read you all later this afternoon...
