Slim & Sassy Sunday - Late Update

Hello everyone! Whew, a late update but I did want to stop by and leave a quick update. Today was super busy for us as a family. Joe ran out to do the grocery shopping this morning while I hung out with our little man, put him down for a nap, and got ready. We were able to go visit my best friend and see her sweet new little baby. Oh my goodness! He is just the cutest and sweetest little guy. You totally forget just how little they are when you've got a toddler but luckily for us Russell was well behaved and I got to enjoy some sweet tiny baby goodness.

After we got back we went over to my Mom and Dad's house because it was a beautiful afternoon and we figured we'd let Russell run around in the backyard for a bit before we had dinner. Russell loved being outside and didn't want to go in even though it was getting cold once the sun started to set. He's totally energized by being outside and loves running around and picking up sticks and rocks.



This week the things I learned are that I need to better watch what I eat and how much water I drink on the weekends. My weekends are so far out of balance it's not even funny. It's too easy to overeat or to eat the wrong foods and I definitely don't get enough water on the weekends. I tend to have way too much coffee, which I'm sure isn't a good thing, and I tend to eat much more for breakfast and lunch. This week I managed to maintain and stay at my same weight which is ok. I am talking to Joe about ways I can work out more during the week so we'll see if I can squeeze in some additional workouts. I might also change my eating habits too as I'm sure eating really late at night before bed doesn't help either.

Anyway, since it's late that's it for today. I hope that everyone has had a great weekend. Stay strong and keep moving forward. No setback is too big to overcome!
