though all these things will change, the memories will remain
The weekend before New Years’, I went through my closet and put all the clothes that I no longer fit in into a gigantic suitcase. It’s literally the biggest suitcase I own. Then we took it to my parents’ house. The reason? So I wouldn’t have to continually look at (and consequently get down on myself) about not fitting into those clothes anymore. The reason I’m not getting rid of them? I know that I will fit into them again at some point in the future.
Yesterday I went for a 3 mile walk, and then went for day 2 of phase 1 of the Shredding business. I had a really hard time doing the “butt kicks” and I even did the modified ones. The push-ups were also challenging because my shoulders were already sore from the day before. But afterward I felt good, and glad that I did it.
Last night I made BBQ beef meat pockets. When I went to add the pie crust into My Fitness Pal, I was shocked that my portion of the crust alone was 400 calories (!!). That’s going to be a make once in awhile kind of recipe. So tasty though (and easy to make). And when you’re trying to please a 3.5 year old and he eats more of it than you anticipated? So worth it. And it was an adult-pleaser too. Definitely going to keep it around for an occasional treat.
D and I went for a walk around the neighborhood together this morning. After breakfast, he was watching football and I was getting antsy. I asked if he wanted to go for a walk with me, and he went! It’s much more fun to comment on things I see when someone else is there to listen 🙂 Then we ate leftover bison meatballs.
And this afternoon it’s been about getting down to the business of studying for my comprehensive exam that’s coming up in a few weeks. I am trying to get as much of my study guides done as possible before my next study group… which is tomorrow. Eeeek! I’m getting there though. Slowly but surely. I am glad that I started all of this before Christmas, because otherwise I would feel really behind. As soon as I get the guides done, I can just spend time reviewing them and asking D to quiz me on stuff.
Pandora, getting me through to the comps. Thank you.
