Yeah...this right over here -------------------------------------------->>. The ticker that says how much I have left to go. After my yucky Sunday and all of my diligence this week, I lost 2.6 pounds to bring me within 1.1 pound of my goal. HaPpY dAnCe!! I'm hoping that next week I'll be celebrating in a big way because I've hit goal. Have your confetti ready to throw at your computer screen or up in the air, just in case.
Today was a great day! I took the girls on a walk/ride. The big girls were on their bikes and Cora in the stroller. Our middle kiddo had worked on riding a 2-wheeler this past fall, but would often get frustrated and quit. Our oldest gave her *middle kiddo* a little encouragement and has been doing really well at getting herself started and stopped. Once in a while she'll wobble, but on the whole, she's great! We were heading up part of a steep-ish hill and she got nervous. I kept telling her she could do it, to peddle faster, and I actually jogged with her for a little ways. Umm...wow! Me, the one who said she'd never do that. It wasn't bad and I didn't die...I lived to tell the tale! Middle kiddo made it practically the whole mile without stopping. She's a trooper.
After walking, lunching, and putting the shortest one down for her nap, I got my 5th day of Slim in 6 done. I also got my Fab Abs done. If you're doing it...are you getting it done every day? Tomorrow is my last day of the first week with Slim in 6. I am kind of looking forward to a rest day. I didn't get that choice when I did P90X. If you're friends with me on FB or you are following my pins on pinterest, you've already seen what I decided to make myself for dinner. And, can I say, they were Y-U-M-M-Y??!! I found a recipe for Hot Apple Pie Pancakes on one of my favorite sites for sweets *ChocolateCoveredKatie* I used Kamut flour, a nice Gala apple, Splenda, and I did leave out the fat. They were heavenly. Those will be on my radar again. And no, my children did not get to partake in the deliciousness of these pancakes; they just got regular ones.
Tomorrow is...BASKET DAY! I can't wait to see what kind of goodies are in our basket tomorrow. My mouth is practically drooling just thinking about it. I'll be sure to take a picture of our haul.
Are you prepared for the weekend? Plan! Know ahead if you have any potential pit-falls and head them off!
