Bring on the snow!

Will spring hurry up and get here?! In Massachusetts we are awaiting a blizzard on Tuesday, and I bet schools will be closed on Wednesday as well, which will stink, because then that will push our last day of school from a Friday to a Monday - that is never fun. We can pray for a delay.

The weekend has come and gone. Thursday and Friday I ate well and my weigh-in on Saturday was 223.2! I finally got my starting weight at WW straightened out (they still had my weight from the 1 time I went in September, which meant they were registering a gain, not a loss).

Saturday my husband was gone all day so I took my son to soccer, then took both kids to do lots of errands. We tried to go to Cheesecake Factory for lunch, but by 12:15 the wait was already 45 minutes, so we headed to a Tex-Mex place. Despite my less than healthy lunch, I did get on the bike for 30 minutes.

I had my normal spaghetti and zoodles for dinner Saturday night thinking that I was still going to try to get in 5 miles on Sunday despite the very cold temperatures. My window of over 20 degrees wasn't going to be until 4 pm and even with the wind chill it would have been miserable. And I just wasn't feeling like the treadmill. My knee felt a little off, so in the afternoon I decided to walk the 5 miles while watching The Bourne Identity. I finished Sunday with over 19,000 steps! Our step challenge ended on Sunday and we came in 38th out of 450 teams. I hope to keep it up as much as I can.

My eating on Sunday wasn't terrible, but wasn't stellar, so I was up a pound on Monday morning since Saturday. One day at work and then I'll probably be home-bound for 2 days. I may even take tomorrow off all together. I am going to try, try, try to eat well this week. My son's birthday is this weekend, so we have a friend party, a special breakfast (just the 4 of us), a family party, and me and my daughter are going to see Beauty and the Beast, so popcorn there.

Oh yeah, the most exciting news!!!!! Next year we are visiting Orlando just to go to Universal. We've been planning this for a long time. Friday morning, on a whim and after seeing people posting Disney pics and Caribbean pics for so long, I decided to check out Disney cruises. Turns out there is a 3 day cruise leaving when we are down there, we just need to start our vacation 1 day early and then we will come back 2 days later - the kids would only miss a day of school. So we booked it!! I can't wait!!!!
