Yesterday was a day from hell. The kids were awful. It's getting to that point that they complain even when I give them free time.
Anyway, D went out of town and will be gone until Saturday. He did mention yesterday that his co-workers wanted him to go to Philly for a bit. That wouldn't put him getting back home until next Wed :( I don't mind when D goes out of town, and I have the house to my self. The only problem is that it has gotten to the point that I needlessly indulge and slack on the gym when he's gone. I did pretty good yesterday. I hit up the gym and did strength training and 30 minutes on the elliptical. I have been scared to weigh myself recently. I think I weighed the middle of last week and went up. I mentioned that I was going to Tampa and probably going to indulge in food and such. Don't get me wrong, I didn't think my one session at the gym would take off 5 pounds. When I weighed this morning, I was up by another 6 oz. Disappointing, but I probably shouldn't be surprised. We did drink lighter beer since we were hanging by the beach the majority of the time. I've got to turn things around. I need to be more comfortable in swimsuits since I'm planning to make the beach a regular hangout this summer.
I keep talking about it, but now it's time. I have to start tracking my calorie intake and not drinking beer during the week. I'm going to go to Pilates today at the Y (hopefully I can make it on time after I go to the post office after work). Then I want to head to the grocery store and stock up on some healthy meals. A major problem of mine is cooking. I'm so lazy; it is actually pathetic. I'm cooking for one this week as well. I'm thinking omelets? I need quick and easy meals! Maybe some hummus wraps? After I get home from my commute, the gym, and errands...I'm usually pretty hungry and don't feel like cooking. I'll check in in a week to see if I've shed a pound. It's a little frustrating because I feel like I always eat sparingly during the day and have been drinking at least 32 ounces of water (it's hard to drink more since I have to pee constantly and only have the opportunity to go between some classes).
I've never gone to Pilates before, so I hope it's not too hard!
