Good afternoon…..Day 3…..

You know, the best laid plans just don’t always work out. Today I had planned on stopping at my parents after my 1st bus run, visiting and helping for an hour or so and than getting home to do my exercises, eat a healthy lunch, get the cranberries cooked up and than head back to work for my 2nd run. Well I just walked in the door and instead of fish flopping exercises my dad and I split up 2 cords of wood and shoveling some dirt he had delivered for the garage in the rain, so both of us are soaking wet but glad it’s done.. Lunch is still healthy, I had a chicken thigh, snap peas, carrots and milk. For breakfast was yogurt and raspberries. So really all is good just not exactly the planned. I have to leave in 15 minutes so will do a couple planks and forgo the yoga until later. The bending, lifting, carrying and stacking of wood will have to count for something.

This morning I stepped on the scale, well I had too just to see if because I was good all weekend there was a reward and yep, minus1.5 lbs. I’ll take it. Tomorrow I’m hoping for another pound and would like it to go that way all week. I know just getting back into the groove of this that the scale will go down faster the first week or two and really lots of times that’s what I need to see to keep focused and going.

I texted Deb today and she’s doing awesome with the veggie challenge. She’s even going to try kale and I just haven’t gotten that brave yet, I’m going to let her try it and tell me all about it. I have heard it’s bitter but it could just be a rumor. :o)

So it’s off to work I go. Bus driving has been a godsend for me. It’s almost a living and I have the time I need to take care of business in-between runs.

Oh before I forget, Deb wants me to set up a linky on Friday so everyone can share something about their week. It can be weight loss, a meal, a thought, an idea, anything. Are you interested? Figured I’d check with you all to make sure Debs great idea is good with you too.

Take care now and have an awesome afternoon.
