Day 4 - Stress and FUN!

Sorry I didn't check in yesterday, but I am happy to report I am still chuggin' along! I still had my little nephew yesterday (all day!). We played outside, then went on a picnic at the park. All four kids had a blast at the park. I didn't get to walk around the trail, but we did do a lot of walking and playing. It felt so good to be out in the sunshine...it was 75 degrees!

I kept my eating on track all day yesterday. I finally filled my propane tank for the grill last night and fired it up! I grilled lean hamburgers and hot dogs for the kiddos. SO GOOD! It's been a long time since I've had red meat, but it was worth it. Jessica came over for dinner with her 4 boys, so there was a while there with 8 kids and it got CrAzY! It's funny how mind wandered to the bag of chips, but I didn't touch them. I was happy in all the chaos, and I really felt in control.

Yesterday I also got a compliment from an old guy friend of mine. He mentioned that every time he's seen me over the past few months that I'm smaller. It was nice to hear that from a man, I have to admit.

Last night was margarita night, so I woke up a little hungover. For breakfast I had a leftover hamburger, which I'm sure wasn't the best choice. But I know that's okay - I'll just have breakfast for dinner. And now I'm down to just my own children I will definitely have time to get on the elliptical today. The sunshine went away, and it's dreary outside today. I see laundry in my future...

Doesn't it feel great to be outside in the sun?
