Dear Diary Wednesday...

I discovered something yesterday.....I am a STRESS eater. I had a horrible day at work and went out with some friends and got a chicken salad sandwich and FRIES.....not exactly the best Weight Watchers lunch I could have. And by the time I got home from work, I was in a frazzle, a horrible mood, and decided that I was not hungry at all. So, yesterday was not a good day for eating but it was a good learning day. I now know what to watch for.

I think my weekend is going to be turning out well. I am working on having a half of a day off tomorrow and Dylan and I are going to take my folks to the Auto Show and then to dinner. We will then have all of Saturday together and I am going to spend some time at Lowes getting a dog run and some furnace filters, and yes, I know you are jealous. We then need to do some "Dylan shopping" and then I am not sure what else we will do. I do want to go and rent some movies for Sunday. And so Sunday will be my laundry/movie day and I will relax and make some dinner for Dylan and I and so when he gets up, I can watch a movie with HIM and have dinner. I have declared Sundays to be "MY LAZY DAY" so I can have one day a week to recharge my batteries.

I am also working on making sure that my days are more positive. I came into work yesterday in a bad/negative mood so, of course, my day was going to end up full of stress and just horrible all the way around. Therefore, on the drive into work I am playing very upbeat and fun songs and working on positive mantras so I won't have another day like yesterday. So far, today is working for me!

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Our first official weight in and I am soooo proud of Dylan and myself! Dylan lost 5lbs and I lost 3.8 lbs and we could not be more happy! I am especially excited because of how well Dylan did and how proud of himself he is....WAY TO GO HONEY!

Okay, now I am done bragging.....

I have had the strangest dreams lately and I am not sure the cause of it. My dreams last night were so disturbing that I woke up and was STILL bothered by them....even after I have been two work for almost two hours. I hate that!!!

Dear Diary Monday....

I spent most of my weekend at work.....not exactly how I planned to spend my weekend! BBBLLLLEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!!

Yep, I was here until 8:30 on Friday, back Saturday morning at 9:30 and stayed until 4:00....THEN I got to go spend some time with my Man. Not very much time, but we had a lot of fun. We tried the new Grille from Impanema restaraunt and I was pleasantly surprised. Great food, wonderful atmosphere, and the waiting staff was great. I would definetly go back.

Dylan and I have started our new year with joining Weight Watchers together and I think we are doing wonderful so far! We have been eating our veggies, eating low fat dinners, and just being extra mindful of food. I think this is going to be an exciting year for him and I.

Other exciting news for me.....getting new hair on Thursday. I am having an A-line cut in the back and dyed dark brown and the front will be smoothed and cut in towards my face and be blond with a few streaks of the dark brown.....YEAH for new hair!
