Good Morning! Its Sunday morning and sunny and just a beautiful day! I have no plans and am just going to go with the flow and see where the day takes me! I see lots of coffee and reading in my near future. Oh and it is National Ice Cream Day so I will be celebrating with ice cream too. Ice cream is one of my favorite foods!
I haven’t been on any dates recently. But there is a new member at my gym that is very cute! He is older than me, about 15 years older…but he doesn’t look it. I haven’t even talked to him so I am definitely just admiring from afar at this time! New members at my gym have to go into a special intro class for the first 4 weeks to learn all the movements. He just finished that last week so now he will be in the normal classes, hoping to run into him and see what happens. He is a Michigan boy – they seem to be my weakness.
I was supposed to go on my second date with Nick last night but I cancelled because my friend had her baby. Babies will always trump boys! She invited me to the hospital to visit and I just couldn’t resist. Holding a fresh brand new baby is such a happy thing. She is absolutely perfect and they should be heading home today. I texted Nick last night asking to reschedule and he hasn’t responded. Maybe hes pissed? I’ll keep you posted on that situation!
Over the last 6 months I have gained about 8-10lbs. I kept thinking it would fall off and my body weight would return to its previous norm, but that is not happening! I have been counting macros on and off but know that I need to stick to it if I want to see results. But I struggle. I will do great for breakfast, lunch and a snack and then someone will ask if I want to meet for dinner or go grab a drink and then I throw off the entire day. If I know I am meeting someone ahead of time I will save my fat and carbs for later and make sure my earlier meals are protein heavy so I hit that number. I don’t want to become a hermit and skip all outings but I also want to achieve my goals. This is my struggle! Anyone else have this issue? I think I need to not be so all or nothing, if I am slightly off on the numbers its still better than nothing. I get to wrapped up in trying to do it perfectly or not bothering at all. I am meeting a friend for dinner tonight so I will be eating mostly lean protein and veggies til tonight. Will save most of my fat and carbs for dinner.
Well I am off to finish a New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, its at least my third time reading it. I rarely reread books but I find that I learn more and more each time I read this book and come to understand it and myself better. Maybe I am finally becoming more conscious….
Have a great day!!!
