Last weekend, my youngest carpool princess had her school play. Her first play and it was a take on General Hospital. Fun and fast. The entire play lasted about 30 minutes. We had the early show (6:00) and a later show (7:15). Daddy and big sister (who was in plays at the same school last year) missed the first showing due to obscene traffic.
It is a family tradition started by my folks, that after plays, concerts, etc we go to get ice cream after. So Friday night after a weigh in, I had ice cream. Yea...but so good.
Then that night, she and I take a 2 hour drive to go to my mom's house. She's been a widow for just over a year, and had put the childhood home on the market. At the beginning of April, she got an offer, and they closed this week. So we went out there to help her pack, As it turns out, packing and loading boxes into storage rooms and eating "on the go" do NOT lead to eating healthy. I gained about 4 pounds over the 2-3 days we were doing all that. Then I came home and ended up with a mild tummy flu-thing. So it all worked out to get me back to right where I was last Friday.
This weeks weigh in results are 0. No loss/no gain.
But this is a new week, and I intend to make a dent in this weight.
I keep telling myself that I am strong, and healthy and capable! I am able able to do this. I try to come back to the scripture. "I can do all things, through Christ who gives me strength."
