Well, I am up this week, but only 0.8 lb, which is less than what I expected. I am okay with it, not happy, but I had a very good time on Wednesday night with friends (and I drank a lot). I want to be able to do things like that occasionally.
Today I went to visit my sister and hang out without any kids. I think it's the longest I've been away from Maddox and not been at work. And it was only about 8 hours. I would have loved to have been gone longer, but I am still nursing a little and it gets a little painful if I go for too long. (8 hours is about my limit.)
I had a good day. We ate at Red Lobster for lunch, we both had a bowl of Lobster Bisque and then shared a warm chocolate lava cookie (yum!!). Afterwards we went for a hike which was actually a lot of work. It was an extremely steep path. Then we went to Value Village where I got 6 shirts and a super cute dress for $45. You can't beat that price. :-) We finished our day at Menchie's, which is a really great frozen yogurt place. You mix your yogurt flavors and then they have a bunch of different toppings (my favorite is the cheesecake bites) and you pay by the weight, which isn't a bad price.
I did run this morning, only 2 miles because I took the jogging stroller and I knew I was going hiking this afternoon.
Before I went to my sister's I tried on different shorts. I have several pairs that I bought and then outgrew and didn't throw away. (I am a bit of a clothes hoarder.) Anyway, I was able to fit into the shorts and was all excited that I had dropped a size, thinking they were a size 10 (I am currently wearing a 12). I looked at the tag and it said 12. How is that possible? The size 12's that I've bought in the last year or 2 are falling off of me, how is it possible that 4 pairs of shorts that last summer I couldn't get over my thighs are a size 12 as well? So I compared the shorts, the one's I bought at the end of the summer last year, and the ones that are 4 (or more) years old.
Today is National Wine Day, unfortunately I am out of wine. :-( So I will just have to celebrate it tomorrow.
