Definitely my favorite part of the holidays (mainly Thanksgiving and Christmas) is all of the family time. I got in plenty of it over the weekend, and couldn't have asked for a better long weekend.
Thursday. Stop 1: Clayton's Mom's house. I met his grandfather, uncle and a cousin. Of course I've been to his mom's house plenty of times, but I really felt welcomed, with all of the extended family there. I loved that :)
Stop 2: Back to my house for dinner. That was a lot of Thanksgiving in one day. I didn't overindulge too much. Just a little. But never really gorged myself.
Mom and I had planned on doing black friday shopping, starting at Wal-Mart at 10 pm Thursday night. Our neighbors daughter wanted to go, and then boyfriend decided he wanted to go. So the 4 of us got to walmart a few minutes after 9 awaiting the sale to begin. My job was to snatch 3 waffle makers for various people. I got them all, although it was hard. I got one on my own, had some teenager hand me a second, and just happened to come across a third (in a different place than they were supposed to be). So a lot of luck.
We also ended up at Target, Belk, Sears and Bath and Body Works. We got home at 5:30 am on Friday....Talk about exhausted! Especially since I didn't take a nap Thursday. And then I only slept for about 3 hours...
We (me, my sister and boyfriend) all went to my grandparents on Friday afternoon. They are my favorite people ever. We had a lot of fun. Then I took boyfriend home, went home and crashed. The weekend was pretty simple and unproductive.
I weighed in this morning as usual, and dun dun dun....+2.2
Not what I was hoping, but I can't say it wasn't completely unexpected, especially after pizza last night.
I've decided I'm not buying anymore clothes for myself until I'm down a size or two. I can't keep spending money on clothes at this size when I want to/am trying to lose weight.
I also need to start working out again. So my goal for this week is 3 days for at least 30 minutes. And hopefully that gain today was mainly from sodium retention.
