Fit Mommy Friday Challenge Check-In

Yeah, another weekend totally got away from me and I didn't check in.  It is now week 8 of the Fit Mommy Friday 10-week challenge...

My excuse?  My generous, wonderful boys gave me whatever stupid bug they had picked up.  So Thursday and Friday, I mostly slept.  Yesterday, I mostly sat with my own box of Puffs.  And today, I had to run to town to get a tire fixed, and get some groceries.  Like $.99 gallons of milk.

Anyway, in spite of feeling like death warmed over, I did fairly okay on my goals over the past couple of weeks.  I've been drinking lots of water.  I did have two Mountain Dews though.  The first one was totally legit.  I had a splitting headache and nothing was touching it, which generally means a migraine.  I had to take kids into town, so we stopped at the post office partway in (which is in a grocery store) and I mailed packages... and bought a Dew.  It did the trick and the headache went away.

The other one was today.  I probably did too much, being out and about without really eating much, and it was getting late and I was just feeling blah, and I definitely needed caffeine.  I chose a CAN of Mountain Dew.  A CAN.  I would normally have purchased at least a 16 oz bottle, so a can is progress.  Anyway, I found it to be sickeningly sweet.  Didn't notice that on Tuesday, which is probably good.  So today, well, I wonder if I am even going to want it now.  It did make me feel better about driving though.  Enough of a caffeine/sugar rush to get me home.

I did work out twice.  Well, sort of.  The first time, I only got about halfway through and started feeling really lightheaded.  The second time, I really took it easy.

I've been walking a lot more.  Especially when we head in town.  I've been parking in the furthest reaches of the parking lot (when that is safe!) and briskly walking in and out of the store.  I've been walking outside at home.

And I've been really working at decluttering.  Not that the house looks like it right now (3 days sick, one day gone... yeah, it's a mess!)

And.... my jeans are falling off me.  I even wore a smaller size one day this week.  They were way too tight... but with a sweater, I think they were okay.  They fit well in the legs and rear, it was the waist that didn't work.

I'm close.  Really close...

Debra ~ Awesome to have clothes getting too big! I need to clean out my closet, but am so worried that I'll need my 'fat' clothes. Call it the hoarder in me....

Feel better and take time to enjoy the week.
