Not too bad

Well, overall, I guess I could say I am having a good week.  I feel much more productive at work.  Getting lots done.  That is always a huge stress buster for me.  Updated my files.  Going out on the road again tomorrow for 2 claims but I don't think either are huge ones.  Good rapport/conversations with my boss today.  Got a beautful thank you letter from a customer that reminded me why I like to do this job.  I did really well with my points on Monday with 21 points.  Also, a 45 minute walk with dog on Monday.  Did not hit my 10000 steps due to rest of day sat at my desk and worked.  My WW points range is 21-27 points.  Yesterday, I went out to dinner with Hubby.  My food was really good, even at the restaurant.  I had Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp and broccolli.  I only ate 1/2 of it and it had a lot of brocolli and shrimp.  I was doing well with my points and eating and even better with water over last two days.  But last night I slipped and ate peanuts and a gosh darn cookie.  So yesterday, my points were 34.  But I am not sweating it, since the over the one day and the under the other day cancel each other out.  Went for a walk last night with dog and then 60 minutes on balance ball while watching tv.  Not very aerobic, but got in over my 10,000 steps.   Good day so far today:  coffee, orange, deli thin whole wheat roll, Boca meatless Chick'n burger.  Planning on having some nonfat yogurt in a minute.  Also sitting her drinking my water.  I am probably not going to sweat the Y this week.  May try to go once or twice.  But focus this week is to get some better rest, destress, do better than last week, which I am so far.   David is away for week, so it has been quiet and probably good for all of us.  Hubby still a mess.  Wish I could get rid of him for a week and REALLY destress!  I actually put makeup on this AM!  I need to start taking better care of myself- exercise, eating right, but also when I lose some more weight, better clothes and makeup.  I want to feel good about myself.  Since I don't work in an office anymore, I have a tendency to let myself slip.   That Penn State game is really important to me and I am so excited about going.  I will probably get in like 20,000 steps that day with all of the walking and jumping around!  And I will definitely have to have an ice cream from the creamery!  So I have something fun and important to me to focus on and look forward to.   Will probably take the dog for a walk later and I have my last night of bowling tonight for my summer league.  Phew!  Will be nice to have a break for a few weeks until my Winter league starts up on September.   So I am not jumping up and down and Whoo Hooing, or breaking any records here at this point.  But getting back on track and feeling a little better and that is a good thing.
