I started my day by weighing in – I now have my official starting point for this year. I’m not happy about the number, but it is what it is and it’s where I’m starting for this new year. Then we had bacon and eggs and went to Mass (it’s the Solemnity of Mary, a Holy Day of obligation). I had no problem getting up early because we were all bed between 9 and 10! I’m not much with the staying up til midnight.
For once, we didn’t have any errands to run after church – so we came home and had smoothies for lunch. The boys didn’t like them at ALL, even though theirs just had blueberries and coconut milk. Weird. That’s fine, more blueberries for me. Those things are spendy!
My days feel all messed up – I have to go to work tomorrow so it feels like Sunday, but then there’s a weekend right after that, so yay!
Dinner will be Sirloin Dijon from Everyday Paleo, but I’m going to cook a little spinach in bacon instead of the brussel sprouts. All of this plus a little Cabernet puts me right at my calorie goal and more or less at my macros so I feel like I’m off to a good start.
My project this evening is getting my thoughts together about how the kids can help more. Currently A helps with taking trash out, but Ian doesn’t do much at all and he’s plenty big enough to. I mean, they both pick up when asked but it’s always a big drama – I’d like to get to maintenance mode especially with busy season coming at work.
One other thought – my elderly (18 this month) cat is acting a little different. Not sick, but different. He’s never been a bed or lap kitty but lately he is sleeping in my bed and today he’s been on my lap twice. I’m loving it but also a little taken aback by it. Maybe his old bones are just seeking out more warmth in the winter.
