Early Morning - Longer Day

What a great day - and I feel good about it. 

It started with a early morning alarm and up and got the dogs out to potty.  Woke up the husband and ironed his clothes for work.  We then took a walk (1.25 miles - 2x around the block) with the doggies this morning around the neighborhood.  We plotted out the distance the night before so we can see how far we were going.  Once our walk was finished it was home and I made and egg for each of us, one slice of wheat toast, glass of OJ and a banana.  I can honestly say it was very weird eating breakfast.  That has not happened in I can't tell you how long.  Nice though to have time in the morning to sit down with the hubby and talk (it's not all rush - rush - rush).  After eating I did 10 push ups against the wall (harder than I thought) and then it was shower time for us both.  Husband off to work......I then started work.  I felt more awake than I have in a while - even with getting up early. 

Lunch was a bit tricky because we have not had a chance to go out shopping as of yet, but I did have a Smart One in the freezer (Weight Watchers Meal).  So I made the Smart One and had a salad (fat free dressing and basically just broccoli and lettuce - no shopping yet) with it and a glass of diet/caffeine free pepsi.  Then I went back to work and once finished a massive storm rolled through with hail the size of dimes and quarters (wish it was actual money falling from the sky).  The lightening and thunder that followed was pretty wicked.  I LOVE storms - of course when there is no chance no one will be affected or get hurt. 

Dinner I had planned I had a boneless skinless chicken breast that I pounded out and grilled and then I stemmed the rest of the broccoli I had and had it with some rice.   So I will be heading off to bed soon as I will be getting up early again tomorrow.  The daily actually feels a lot longer and I loved it.  I finished work earlier...it was like I did not know what to do with myself. 

I will post again tomorrow and will be posting some pics before the end of the week.  Thanks again everyone for the feed back so far and for the kind and uplifting words. 


  1. Sounds like a great day and a great start. For not having been to the store, you were able to make smart choices with what was on hand. Not always an easy task.

    I look foward to reading about your journey. I'm probably to big to share a boat with so I'll be in the next boat over.

    Best wishes for a super week.

  2. Sounds like a well done day with lots of good accomplishments and work completed.

  3. Sounds like you had a fabulous start, keep it up!
