Goal Update: February 21, 2012

I didn't want to step on the scale this morning.  I literally forced myself to place one foot, then another, on top of it and I was pleasantly surprised to see I had not gained any weight this week.  During our mini-vacation to my sister's house, I ate a copious amount of junk food.  Since, we ended up leaving Friday night (due to a monster storm coming to Alabama) instead of Saturday morning, we stopped and ate dinner at McDonald's.  GROSS...and I made bad eating choices there, instead of my usual salad I had chicken nuggets.  They were delicious and guilt-inspiring.

So I did not make my weight goal this week, but I was proud of myself for not gaining weight.  We stayed busy at my sister's house, walking in the woods and going to the playground with the kids.  My sister and I did one session of Just Dance, and she creamed me.  I feel my activity level was good, which helped me not to pack on the pounds, even though I wasn't sticking to my normal eating regime. 

Let's face it: I am not a cleaner.  I never have been.  I'm a procrastinator.  This weekend my aunt said she was a procrastinator for a long time too, until she realized it was getting in her way.  I need to realize this.  Procrastination makes me lazy and inept.  It's time to give that vice up, or at least work on procrastinating less.  I bet you can guess from this paragraph that the vacuuming did not get done.

I was better about being with the kids during the week, because we had gymnastics every day after school.  This forced me to spend time with them, and I enjoyed it.  I enjoy time with them, but after work both Hubby and I have our routine, and I am sometimes absorbed with the computer and telephone.  I am trying HARD to put them down and give my kids more attention.  I loved spending quality time with them this weekend.  I need to cherish them more, because before I know it they will be grown up. 

This week I'm going to work on taking off one pound.  I believeI can accomplish this goal.  I just need to *seriously* jump back onto the eating well wagon.  I want to find my theme in writing: my focus, and I need to write more than just my blog.  I'll explore this later, as I'm finding some direction in which to focus my writing.  For this week, I'll be content to say I'm going to write every day again: blog and one of the stories I'm working on. 

Not a lot of goals for this week.  I'll probably add some as the week drags on (or flies by).
