Smooth Monday

Ahh good morning! I awoke to sunshine and wet windows and birds singing but we seem to have progressed into clouds, dry windows and bird singing. However, there are promises of 60-64 degrees in the Mitten on this day off of mine! I have some "bumming" to do and it's just right weather for it. Nothing too interesting...running out of moisturizer, need (want) new pajamas, birthday cards. After a long hard-working weekend, it'll be a nice diversion. By the way, the lazies have indeed passed and I managed to get this house back in order over the weekend so I have no chores standing in the way of my aimless bumming day.
I made a hearty thick smoothie for breakfast since today is Weight Watchers so I try to eat light most of the day. I am way past the days of fasting all day and I find that having a protein packed smoothie with a hit of glucose is a nice alternative. I'll have mostly fruit and veggies until we weigh in. Confession-the Mr. and I are doing terribly! Mac is down 25 and losing more this week but we are just in a rut. And it's not one of those plateaus where you need to hang on and you'll start losing. We are just eating too much! We got off track when Dean's dad was in the hospital and it's been slow to get it back together. This week I don't expect to lose but I think I'll break even, some days that's all you can ask for!
I think I'll finish my smoothie and take a long shower and then it's yoga pants and bumming for me. Hope your Monday is sweet!

Smoothie-1 banana, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup low fat yogurt, 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, 1 tablespoon honey. NOT low calorie! But it will fill you up and keep you going!

I have been trying too for some time now and have lost 15 lbs but my problem is portion control. It's hard for me to stay with small portions.
Hope you have a great week.

A day of bumming in yoga pants and beautiful weather sounds absolutely fab to me! I struggle with my weight every day of my life and have decided I am doing the best I can and that's all I can do. Whatever happens with that is up to the Lord, not me! Praying you enjoyed your day!

Many hugs...........
