I'll be honest: I really didn't feel like posting today. I really didn't feel like doing much of anything today, actually. I would have been perfectly content to camp out on the sofa with a fuzzy blanket and a stack of movies. But wallowing won't do me, or anyone else, any good. So I got up this morning determined not to let my blue mood get the best of me.
Walker and I took Diva to breakfast at the VFW, then we headed out to do some overdue errands. On our way to Sam's Club, we passed a pet store with a large sign on the lawn, "Kitties Here Today!". Of course we stopped. I told Diva, "We aren't bringing anyone home with us. We'll just go in, cuddle some kitties, and go." Um, okay. Sure. Unfortunately, the rescue group that was supposed to bring the kitties hadn't shown up. Why the pet store didn't take the sign down, who knows. So after we did our errands I decided to stop at the animal shelter. Just to visit. They aren't convenient, by the way. We had to drive over to the next town, then outside of town to the country. But I really wanted to play with the kitties. And they were closed. So we went home, skunked.
Today marked one week on Spark People. I'm happy to report, I'm down 3.8 pounds. I don't know the number I'm shooting for, I just want to be able to wear my stinkin' cute daisy capris come spring. They're one size smaller than I'm wearing now, so the goal is attainable, unless spring happens to come next week. With the weather we're having, I would not be surprised.
Anyway, one of the goals I signed up for was to tell someone about my goals. I thought that meant one person, but it turns out I have to tell one person every day for a week. If you care to comment on this post, I'm going to count you as a person told.
I decided to post a weekly update on my Spark success, and I plan to do this on Sunday night / Monday morning. I'm guessing these posts will be pretty darn boring, so feel free to skip them, LOL. I just need the accountability. I figure if I have to tell the world I screwed up royally, maybe I will work harder not to screw up.
