Come Monday

It'll be alright (Jimmy Buffet).  I wish I was on a tropical island or on a boat out in the gulf or at least at a Jimmy Buffet concert.  I hate Mondays.  I especially hate Mondays now that mini-me is back in school.  Today happens to be picture day, on a Monday for fooks sake.  It's hard enough getting her out of bed and motivated but the added stress of picture day perfection pushed me over the edge and I ended up yelling at her.  *sigh*

This is going to be a long week for me.  We decided to take a long weekend and go home to Ohio Friday through Sunday.  That's 10long hours, in the car, each way.  The good news is that we are going to see Pat Benatar Friday night and then I get to see my family on Saturday and Sunday morning while the hubby takes care of some family business on his side.  The bad news is that I will be forced to do meals on my own, off of Jenny Craig, for the majority of the weekend.  The other bad news is that while we are at the concert Friday night it just happens to coincide with a taste of Blue Ash so healthy eating will not be in the cards.  I was turned on to SparkPeople this week and have quickly become addicted to tracking my food and exercise and earning Spark Points.  If you are dieting you should check it out (it's really cool and free).  Thanks KateRN.

I have been really good with my eating and incorporating exercise into my routine and am REALLY hoping for a big loss on Wednesday.  If I only lose .4 lbs or similar (or heaven forbid gain) my head just may explode all over the place at my Jenny Center.

I hope you all have a fantastic and productive week!

I will join you on the tropical island! Or the boat. Which ever.

I strongly dislike Mondays too. They can burn in flames next to the Devil.

I feel you! I hope you have a great loss this week. If you don't, I certainly hope they have some good advice.
