Coming to an end...

Well, my Spring break is rapidly coming to an end. I'm back at LB tonight, then back at my school job on Monday. We have really had a blast over the past two weeks. Even my children keep commenting on how much fun they're having. But I feel like I am having twice the fun because I get to go out at night, too! I'm going to a party tonight with some friends, and it should be a lot of fun. I guess it will be the last time I go out for a while - time to get back to reality (school, work, etc.).

Thursday I was very depressed over some things that a friend (male) had said to me. I felt like I'd been dumped, which is impossible because we were not together! But we have been good friends for over 11 years. Anyway, Jess decided to take me out Thursday night and I had way too much to drink. Yesterday was spent recovering, and I ate too much. By the end of the day, though, I reeled it in and decided that I needed to get my ass in gear. I got some homework done, then got to bed fairly early (for me).

This morning they canceled my daughter's soccer practice, so since we were already dressed I decided we would go to the park and walk. When we got to the park it was very cool and windy, and the sky had turned black like it was going to storm. I decided to run to the store first, then come back later. I did well at the store, and made really good choices. The processed, convenience food just doesn't appeal to me anymore. I found a great deal on strawberries, which I'm about to cut and wash for snacks today. If I have strawberries around I usually do well all day because they give me something good to snack on.

So far today I've had:

1.5 c. Newman's cereal (first time I tried it and love it) w/ 1% milk
1/2 leftover Subway turkey sub, added a piece of RF provolone cheese
5 pcs. popcorn chicken (out of my kids cup at Walmart b/c I was hungry)
20 oz. Sobe Lifewater (again, a checkout line choice at Walmart)

I work at 5 - 9:30 pm tonight and am dreading it. UGH. I really hate working two jobs. I bought lettuce and grape tomatoes to make a salad for dinner before I go, and plan on taking strawberries to snack on. I want to keep it light for the rest of the day because I will be drinking tonight. I've got 4 hours until I leave for work, so I'm going to gather my kids for a walk around the neighborhood, so in case it rains we'll be close to home. Then I'm gonna clean my bedroom - it's a mess!
