Good Evening! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend :) I won't be going back to work until Wednesday so mine isn't over just yet :) I took the day off from running today and replaced it with some rigorous housework. I swept, mopped, vacuumed, and did tons of laundry :( I love a clean house but I rather not be the cleaner haha.
After cleaning the house all morning, I went out to a couple stores to pick up a few things. My first stop was CVS. I am starting to embrace their rewards program and I had ten dollars of Rewards Bucks that I needed to use. I ended up getting $40 of merchandise for $20 AND walking out with eleven dollars in Rewards Bucks for a future purchase. Not too bad!
Next up was Target, which is generally dangerous for me. I feel like I got some decent deals but I still ended up parting with a lot of cash. I did try to stick with the sales that offered gift cards with their purchase and ended up with $20 in gift cards.
I received some coupons for Dairy Queen so tonight we went out for a treat :) Julia and I shared a double fudge, cookie dough blizzard, which was everything I needed. It did get me thinking about my journey to a more healthy life. I was pleased that Julia and I shared out blizzard rather than each having our own. I was a little concerned about what I ate today and the amount of my activity throughout the day.... If you remember, my goal for August was to lose another ten pounds, which I did not do. I have only lost eight pounds so I am going to try and step it up and meet that goal before I head down to Nogales, AZ in a week. Hello again 4AM workouts!
I am going to Nogales for one week to see how the SW border operates. It should be a pretty fun trip and I fully intend to continue working out and eating right while down there. I am confident I can meet my goals, I just need to keep my priorities straight! So I want to lose two pounds this week and lose another six by October :)
Did you labor today?
