I have a blog post ready to go about trying to get a handle on better time management. But today, I’m going to post about my WW meeting since I’m still running on my endorphin high.
I made a plan last night/early this morning that I would get to my Curves workout and a WW meeting before I had to go to work at 8pm. The plan was a success. It feels so good to be successful.
Just a little before 4pm I was out the door and on my way to Curves. I had a good 25-minute workout and then rushed back home to shower and change before my 6pm WW meeting. I ended up just squeaking in on time to the meeting after it took forever at Starbucks. I ended up going to my “old” WW meeting at the Monday evening time slot in Nampa. It isn’t at the same location where I started 10 years ago and it isn’t the same leader or members. But, the energy was there. It really did feel like coming home. I recognized one member from my old WW days at Nampa and the new leader used to be a member with me as well during those old WW days.
I love the leader. She is fun and energetic and really encouraging. There are many new members but all seem really nice as well. I feel like I have found my new WW home for a while. Monday nights will be easy to get to while on graveyard and while I’m on day shift. I think I still want to venture across town to my favorite Tuesday morning meeting when I am able to. But, when I can’t be there, this Nampa evening meeting will be my resting place. I also have the benefit of a Thursday night meeting when the occasional Monday holiday comes around (4th of July next week) and those times I work overtime.
I feel really good and really energized today. I gained 1.8 pounds over the last three weeks but not even that can damper my mood. I have had such high swings when it comes to weight gains that it feels successful to have gained less than a pound over the last three weeks. That also included our trip to Pendleton. Of course I want to turn that number around but as of today I’m not beating myself up. So that too is a success.
I’m going to get a jump start on my activity by getting on the treadmill after midnight. That will “officially” be Tuesday. And then I’ll do the same on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning when I get off work at 2am from my OT shift. This will allow me to check off my activity for both Tuesday and Wednesday. Keep is rolling….
I am also taking a break from sugar. My sister’s birthday pizza party is on Wednesday. I’ll decide then if I think I want some cake. I just feel even more successful when I’m not bogged down by sugar and sweets. It always comes down to having a little pep talk with yourself BEFORE you eat the yummy sweet treat. I could use a lot more pep talks in my future that is for sure.
