Weigh in (12/19) + Christmas Travel

Wow, this Monday totally flew right by! Actually, the whole weekend seemed like it was over before it even started! Sorry to be posting so late, but I'm just glad I remembered ;)

Saturday's weigh in...



Not bad! I basically lost what I gained last week, but it's a loss, nonetheless. I know I can still lose 2.8 lbs by January to make my 50 pounds lost goal... though considering this is Christmas week, I'm not going to beat myself up if I don't quite make it.

Saturday's WW meeting was good; lots of people are feeling the same about the new program as I am... we know it's good for us in the long run, but it's a lot of changes to have to make which leaves us feeling a little unsure about it all.

I'm feeling really good about kicking this frappuccino habit; there's a good coffee place next to my WW meeting center, and usually after the meetings I go there and get a mochassippi (their frappe-type drink). On Saturday, I still went, but I got hot tea instead! I'm enjoying trying all different flavors; currently, I'm drinking a tea that's supposed to taste like a sugar cookie... and believe it or not, it actually does!

Just making little changes each week will go a long way to helping me adjust to the new program. I'm definitely thinking twice now before I grab another cookie or piece of chocolate, and I feel better in general--probably because I'm not ingesting nearly as much sugar as I was!

On Sunday, we had an early Christmas--meaning we opened the gifts that already arrived at our house since we're going to Texas (Marc's parents) Tues-Sunday. Later, went caroling at the kids' school. It was fun! We all sang for about 30 minutes, then they served us dinner and dessert--all the free food is definitely one of my favorite things about Catholic school (just kidding...or am I?)

Early Christmas... bikes, stockings (I couldn't find the stockings
with their names on them!)
, and a few gifts from my oldest brother's family.

They called all the kids up to the front to help sing "Rudolph..."
and Karinne wouldn't go up by herself ;) She sang it with her class on Friday, so
she knows it really well! 
Tomorrow, Marc and I both are just working half days at work, then picking up the kids and getting on the road to Texas as soon as humanly possible. Marc and I will come back on Sunday, and the kids will stay with their grandparents until New Years Day, when they'll meet us halfway to give them back. Hopefully the trip won't take more than 7 hours tomorrow, but you never know with kids!

How was your weekend? Any plans this week?
