So last week I was excited about losing 2 pounds.  Guess what?  I gained them back this week. While having my mom here did help me make good food choices, exercise got dropped in lieu of spending time with her and visiting.    And I probably consumed a wee bit too much alcohol.  So I don't regret the 2 pound gain at all.  Sometimes you just have to let go and live a little.

Starting yesterday I am getting back on track. (I wonder how many times I have said that on this blog......) I had a mostly good day yesterday, even if there was still no exercising.  The hardest part for me this week is going to be the lack of TaeKwon Do.  The class is cancelled tonight because they are doing testing (Liam is testing for his second stripe, I'm no where near ready to think about testing yet).  And then the Saturday and Monday classes are cancelled because of the Canada Day long weekend.  So that is a whole 9 days with no TKD.  I MUST do something else instead.

Hilary and Liam are leaving Sunday morning for a 10 day trip to BC to visit Hilary's parents.   So I will be on my own. My plan is to redo Liam's room while they are gone, so I'll have lots of physical activity - painting, moving furniture - to keep me going, but I'm going to also make time for working out.  I'm not worried about eating, as I tend to eat less when I'm on my own.  I can't be bothered to cook for just me, so I'll probably load the fridge up with fresh veggies and have lots of salads for the week.

Be sure to check out my partner Traci over at Blissful Bedlam.   She's feeling frustrated right now and could use some support and encouragement!


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the visit with your mom.

    You'll be amazed at how much activity you'll get just from painting. I did the kids' rooms 2 years ago and I was so sore from painting.

  2. You have the right attitude and that will take you far! Enjoy the peace and quiet while they are gone!
