My May was pretty good (see last post). I read a lot, I ate clean for 6 days, I exercised for a little over 20 hours. I did quite a bit of walking, but the vast majority of the walking is with weights or it's scaling the hills we live on. So I think it really does count as exercise. I was weak on exercising my abs. I have to do better in June on that in particular. I wrote 6,000 words toward my current writing project. All in all, it wasn't too shabby--a lot done and most toward good goals. Except for my weight. I went up a pound. So, since January 1, my total weight loss is 1.4 pounds. Umm, yeah, that sucks. And in May I really kept it together when it comes to eating. My one indulgence were nut clusters. I did have a slight obsession with them. I ate two whole packs of them. 24 servings each x 2 packs x 170 calories per serving = probably a week's worth of calories.

Thus far, June is abysmal. Exercise = zilch. Food = oh geez, I have probably eaten a week's worth of calories on just June 1st and 2nd. It was J's birthday weekend, and we had family in town (hosted several meals), and then J had her friend party today. When I host, I get nervous. When I get nervous, I eat.

I have really got to pull it together starting Monday. Eat well, exercise, although it seems like I gain weight when I exercise a lot.

So it starts a new week, and I'm in a major sleep deficit. This will be *fun*.

Don't be too hard on yourself. Life happens. :)

How did the party go? Can you believe our girls turn 5 in the next day or two?!?!

I know, I know, eeek! Time seems to be going so fast after we got over that first 18 months or so. Happy Birthday, M!

Parties went good. We had a family party on Sat and friend party on Sun (did NOT want Groundhog Day with the puking at an off-site bday party; I still have PTSD from last year). Both were at the house. So we were in the constant clean-cook-clean-entertain-cook-clean cycle ALL weekend. What are you all doing as far as celebrations?

Happy Birthday to Miss J!

We're doing party at the park. So far, I thin we have at least 30 kids coming...

Hope M enjoys her party! At least it will be outside so that will diffuse the noise level of 30 kids. :)
