Life is so freaking weird these days.
I had several past English teachers attend, which was fabulous, but all but one made me personalize their books to their first names which was the strangest thing ever. When I asked one in particular how I should sign it, she said, "C'mon, you are a grown-up now." LOL
But, this Orlando trip (which will include HARRY POTTER WORLD OMG) is really the last big hurrah of the past six months. I wish I was kidding, but we have been planning this with BC's family since Christmas and with everything going on this really feels like the finish line of a marathon.
My new job has me trying to adapt to a new schedule so that means needing to find a new time to weigh in at Weight Watchers. The past couple weeks I'd been going after work on Thursdays but I think I used that as excuse to get lazy and slopping Thursday evenings as I'd just tell myself I could start tracking Friday morning so I wasn't seeing results I'd like, because I'd usually overeat after the meeting.
Luckily, the place I go is pretty close to work and they have open hours on Thursdays so yesterday I used my lunch hour to run on over there and weigh in and was delighted to find out I was down 2 lbs! Weighing in between breakfast and lunch really made me want to stay on track for the rest of the day and I'm particularly aware of it since I want to save as many of my Weekly Points for Florida. Even though I know we'll be doing a bunch of walking at the theme parks, I don't want to rely on those APs if I don't have to.
I am so looking forward to this trip and see it as a chance to relax and unwind before settling into the second half of 2015 which should, hopefully, be far more calm than the first half.
Love from the ashes,
