Back on track

Well not too much to tell you about today - had a dreadful night last night. After one piece of birthday cake turned into two pieces turned into a third piece which then opened the box of chocolates which I got from Coles for my birthday and ate about 10 of them !!!! Really a bad night (well morning really because it was about 2am when this happened). The good thing is that I am back on track (haven't tracked since Wednesday !) today and have put the past behind me.
We went for our weekly Saturday muffin fix this morning - for some reason mine didn't taste as nice as it normally does - maybe because of the sugar fix I had last night ????? We also did some shopping and got some chicken and veggies for stir fry tonight. Then it was off to the library and then back home to do the weekly washing. Am just catching up on some blogs before going to my folks to help them with some of their sewing that they do.
We got some breadrolls for lunch and so I had a WW ham, cheese and salad roll for lunch - am sure I won't be hungry when it is time for dinner - we have to eat early as I have to be at work before 6pm - maybe I will cook and Kaitlin can eat when she is hungry and I will eat when I get home - will see how long I land up helping my folks.
Must try to get back to the exercising - I was doing so well last weekend but this weekend has been a little more difficult with everything else that we have had on. I must say, I don't enjoy being a single parent - it really takes quite a lot of juggling around to make sure everything that is supposed to get done, gets done. The good thing is that I have managed to change my shifts at Coles from 4 x 3 hour shifts (Mon, Wed, Thur, Fri) plus every second Saturday to 3 x 4 hours shifts (Mon, Wed Thurs) plus every second Saturday - that means I will be able to watch the footy on a Friday night !!!!! Most nights we would work 4 - 5 hours anyway so it just means that we have an extra night in the week if we want to do something.
Now I am just rambling so will be saying cheers for now - need to get out into the garden but it is raining on and off and I can't use the electric mower and whipper snipper - hopefully tomorrow it will be fine and I can get it done.

TIAGF : The rain which has been falling because it keeps my garden looking lovely without me having to stand and water it.

Well done for getting back on track! Chicken Stir Fry, yummo. Just in time for me to start thinking about what to have for dinner. Great to hear you could change your Coles shifts around too. That will be great LOL, especially with the footy. It seems to be the gardening week round blogland :-) I hope you guys have a really nice evening.

I am sure it is OK to have a splurge with your Birthday goodies. You will be fine!

See the difference with you is that you know and recognise when it is a splurge and you stop. It lasts a day then you are right back on track. That is fantastic. That is life. When at goal this is going to happen from time to time, but the thing that will keep you there is to only let it go a day. Then stop. Then back on track. Well done, and congrats for being able to swap your shifts around. Have a great Sunday :)
