WW's Update

After a disappointing result last week, I had a fantastic loss of 1.15kgs this week! (or 2.5lbs for my U.S friends) :)

I had a big lunch out on Sunday with friends and had far too much food and even some wedding cake (which was mud cake of course) so was worried it may have jeopardised the good work I had done all week, but it obviously hadn't caught up with me yet. So I guess I had better be extra good this week so that it doesn't.

The exercise is going well. I am doing an hour of walking just about every other day and today I went rollerskating with the girls (and I think my legs will be reminding me of it tomorrow!) I am also trying to get in some toning exercises on the fitball, in the hopes that when I reach goal I won't be just a mass of flabby skin. lol

I am enjoying the holidays with the girls but so far have not had much time for 'my' stuff. I am taking them bowling in the morning and maybe to lunch so then I plan to spend the afternoon in my craft room. I have a lot of things I want to get done and some sketches to get up at 123-Scrap! before tomorrow night.

This is going to be a tough week emotionally (Dad's 60th birthday is on Thursday and his and mum's 39th wedding anniversary on Saturday) so I am just trying to take it one day at a time and not use it as an excuse to eat my way out of the depression. I think an hour on the treadmill or paving the poundment is a far more sensible way to deal with it. Let's just hope it works.

A friend has invited me to a Christmas card workshop on Thursday night, and I can't decide if I should go to in order keep my mind on other things, or just stay home with my thoughts and remember and celebrate my dad's life rather than trying to hide from it. I don't know, I think I will just wait until Thursday and see how I am feeling then.
