Day 334 (day 5 / week 47)

Tuesday Dec. 1, 2009

Yesterday was another busy workday. I don't know why I say that. It's ALWAYS busy. It's a rare day when it's not busy. They send me home or call me off when that happens lol. I walked 16,734 steps! That's almost 8 miles (7.92 to be exact)! I left on time as well. Because I prayed. I couldn't leave on time without Him. I've proved that too many times to get called in to the Boss Lady's office to have it addressed.

My ankle still hurts. It is traveling to different parts of my foot but it bugs me. Gotta be careful and mindful of what I am doing. Posture is key I'm sure.

This night (Monday night to Tuesday morning) was the best that I have slept since Pebbles left. It was the best sleep I have had in a long time. I slept through a lot it turns out. I slept through a thrashing toddler in the bed. I was out as soon as my head hit the pillow. I don't even remember my hubby getting in bed. I slept through putting him in his room--my hubby is always very loud when he does this, because he HATES doing it (I don't blame him, I hate it and it's my job). I slept through the Monkey Boy waking up at 4 am and standing next to me lol. How I slept through that, I have no idea--the creepy feeling of someone up in my face watching me sleep ALWAYS wakes me up lol. It woke my hubby up and I slept through him trying to put the boy back to his bed and failing, and through him putting the boy in our bed again. It was a good sleep. I hope Pebbles found a happy home.

Anyway I am in shock that the end of the year is right around the corner. It's in less than 30 days. That scares me! I didn't meet my 175lb goal, but I have 28 days to do it. I am glad I am carrying my resolution onto 2010, but am excited that I took full advantage of this entire year. What a blessing. I decided to join Fit Lizzio (aka Nerd Girl) on a challenge to lose 10 lbs by Christmas. I am also trying to eat more protein. Like double what I have been eating (I got a chance to talk to a real live dietitian at work!). This entire year I haven't lost that much in a months stretch, or even a 2 month stretch, but I am going to try. Did I just set myself up for failure already saying it's pretty impossible? *shrugs* Maybe I can do it. Afterall, I am a star! (lol couldn't say that w/ a straight face). We can do all things in Him who gives us the strength to do it, so I can if I try!

I am planning to have measurements and pic up in the next 2 or so days. Scary. I'm sure there is no improvement at all. I have to get w/ hubby, and I hate how it gets so dark so early now, because it makes it hard to get it done after he is off from work--not enough light in our house to take a decent picture.

Hope everyone is well. How are you goals coming along?

I can do this. I am a star.

Day 3 3 4 of consecutive exercise for Melissa Henning (and yes, I always think of you as an ice skating STAR when I think of your last name....but wait, that was Peggy FLEMING wasn't it? HAH I JUST NOW REALIZED THAT!) Girl, I'll smack you if you get upset about "progress" or "numbers on a scale". Of course, GOALS are ever important and admirable....but they are just steps along the lifelong way! GO FOR IT on losing, I have no doubts you can do it! You are a star (I still chant/PANT that when it hurts running, like, the whole run!)
