Reached my goals for the day

Had a rather rushed evening tonight - when I was planning on going for a walk this evening, I had forgotten that I had to collect Kaitlin from school as she has sports on a Tuesday. Anyway, we got home at about 5.30 and I quickly changed and went out walking - I knew that if I didn’t it would be another day down with no formal type of exercise and I really just had to listen to Amelia and ‘do it anyway’ !!!!! I knew that I only had ½ hour as we had to pick up some friends. I left home with a bit of a route in my head but when I got to where I thought I would turn I had only been walking 10 minutes so I carried on. At the next corner I was going to turn but realised that I still had another 15 minutes to go so went around the big block and managed to make it back just on 30 minutes which is what I had wanted to walk in the first place. K and I will have to cycle the route (we go through some pedestrian parts so can’t drive it to see how far it is) - I am sure that it isn’t very far but I really felt good for having gone. I am sure that if I continue I will be able to either do it quicker or walk further - now that it is staying lighter for longer I will be able to cycle as well (which is what I prefer to walking if I have a choice). K jumped in the shower as soon as I got home and then I showered and we left and we were about 3 minutes late for our friends but got to Sharks in time so that was the main thing.
We had a lovely evening - I had some salad to start, then went and had a little pasta with napoli sauce, a little bit of pork, some cauliflower and some pumpkin. For dessert I had the tiniest taste of K’s chocolate mousse - all in all a very successful evening. I was going to have some sticky date pudding (one of my favourites) but then decided that I didn’t really need it and that I would rather achieve my goal of no sugar points until Saturday.
I managed to stick to all my goals for today - drank my water, went for a walk and didn’t have any sugar points (I’m not counting the taste I had of K’s dessert as I don’t think that it was worth anything) - I won’t be getting in a walk tomorrow night as my folks are coming over for dinner but I should be able to drink all my water and stay away from the sugar points without too much trouble.
I spoke to Al just now - he had a frustrating day today - unfortunately there isn’t anything I can do except listen. They were off to dinner after he had finished talking to me and he was going to talk to the big boss to see the final dates that he is needed there leading up to Christmas so that he can make sure he gets his flights booked in time to get home. I would hate for him to be stuck there over Christmas because he couldn’t get a flight home !!!!!
Well I am off to bed now - take care everyone and have a great day !

Had a quick skip of the heart when I read the title - for a minute I thought you had reached goal. Will still celebrate with you for achieving daily goals though :)

Well done to you. Have a great day Linda..
