Rainy Monday…

Posted on: April 30, 2013

It’s hard enough to go from a relaxed weekend,  to homeschooling mother without the added gray skies and rain peering through the windows.  It always makes me feel blah and lacking in energy.   I did have an errand to run, so  managed to get myself together despite really wanting to curl up on the couch under a blanket in my pj’s with a steaming cup of tea..


Wearing my newly thrifted sweater with a Will Smith  top that I bought at TJ Maxx ages ago.  Of course I managed to get dressed for my errands, but loved that I have new glasses and could be lazy about not putting in contacts…


Had to walk through the mud before taking these photos, hence my booties..

I was thinking after yesterday’s post on my lack of weight loss during strength training and decided that next week I am going to try to eat mostly protein for the next few weeks…  Went shopping and bought fresh fruits and vegetables that need to be used this week. 

Gratitude:  I am grateful that despite my blah mood today, that Connor cooperated and worked hard on the writing unit and reading we did today!  I am grateful that Connor also helped do chores of taking out trash and unloading dishwasher with a good spirit(he was stalling starting homeschooling but doesn’t know I was onto him! )   I am grateful that the rain stopped and I was able to take photos! I am grateful for phone conversation with my daughter as she is so stress free and she  also told Connor she had 2oo pages to read tonight, so he knows I am not making up how important reading is in his college future…

Monday’s Food Choices

Breakfast– cleaned up and ate at 11am.. by then just grabbed a protein bar, banana & 1% milk-  7pts

Lunch- 2 celery stalks and  2 laughing cow cheese wedges ( a new favorite!) and an apple- 3 pts

Dinner– Quino, brown rice with mushrooms and onions and salad greens with feta & Ital dressing- 10 pts

Heading out to my WW Meeting this morning, so come back tomorrow and see how I did??

Your new glasses really suit you! I love the frames. Your zebra cardigan is such a fun print.

Crazy about your sweater! You look beautiful in your glasses!

Thank you! I like having the choice again!
