Simple Pleasures Monday - Spring break!

It's been a few weeks since I did my "Simple Pleasures Monday." This weeks is easy. It's Spring Break and I get a whole week off of school. A whole week to spend with my Camdenator. And Mark has the end of the week off too, so I'll get to spend lots of time with him as well. I love family time and plan to enjoy every minute doing things I normally don't get to do (take naps, be home with Camden all day every day). I'll try to check on you, my little blogging buddies, but a cute almost-1-year-old may distract me. So if I am not around as much, don't think I have forgotten you. I'm just enjoying the men in my life!

Also, I lost a pound last week! Considering af came for a visit, I feel pretty good about that. I didn't quite meet all my goals last week, but I did count every single point that went in my mouth. I also stopped snacking just because and focused on eating healthy items when I did snack. This week I plan to count points every day and stick to my points five days out of seven (I am giving myself semi free range for Camden's birthday party). I plan on walking at least four days. And I plan on continuing to analyze if I am hungry when I eat or if something else makes me want to eat.

Have a great day all!

Yay! WTG on the loss!! You motivated me, I am going to go get my walking shoes on and meet up with the ladies in my ward who are walking today.

PS Thanks for the mail!

Way to go on the weight loss! I need to keep track of my snacking, too. I often eat to "make myself feel better." What a joke that is.

Anyhow, I hope you have a wonderful spring break!

I love spring break! Our spring break is not until next week, but I really love having my daughter home and a break in the routine, a break from homework, etc.

You are so fantastic! It sounds like you are doing great and you have very realistic and practical goals. Seeing that others are trying to stay on track and setting goals is really helping me out. Way to go!:)
