First off I have missed blogging on the past 2 True Confessions. Go figure my days getting away from me and the next thing I know it is Wednesday, or Thursday. Who the hell knows what I am doing, but it is obviously something and not blogging like I should be.
Second, I was a bad, bad girl this week. I haven’t been drinking alcohol very much and this week I had a craving for Guinness BAD. This past Wednesday I had 1. Friday I had 4. Saturday I went to a birthday dinner and party and didn’t drink beer, but did have plenty of other things. Sunday I drank 2 Snake Bites. Half Guinness and half Cider. Last night I had one too. Today I will have nothing, but water and the same for the rest of the week. Well, at least I will try as of this moment. Can you imagine what those calories did to me? I counted most of them, logged them, then by the time Saturday came around I didn’t log for the birthday party. Ug. Yep. I was up 1.4 at my weigh-in on Sunday. Such an idiot! My scale and the WW scale are never the same. This morning my scale said 176. BAD!!! I am working hard to get back down by this next Sunday. I want the 1.4 gone, plus a little more. It is such a pity how fast it comes back on and how slowly it is to get it off. Just sucks really! I wasn’t even really that bad with my eating except for Sunday. Oh well. I own it. Time to move on!

On a good note I have two of my Boys that started Tutoring this past week and it is going fantastic. They come home with happy faces. Their self-esteem and reading/writing are moving forward. The Wilkins Learning Center in Gilbert has the most amazing people ever!
I finally hired a new housekeeper and she starts tomorrow. With a crew of 5 others! How fantastic is that! I haven’t had anyone helping me with the house for over a year. I know this may sound petty, but for me it is a life saver. I have gone though a pretty hard year and a half personally and just the little things like this make me feel so much better. I am a bit ashamed about the way my house looks now, others would disagree, but this is a step in the right direction for myself. A clean house makes for a happy Kathleen.
I started yesterday off by going on the treadmill not once, but twice, throughout my day. I was in a weird bored mood and it really helped. I can’t wait to get back on it today!
Today I am starting the 100 Push-ups program. I have tried it before, but never finished. I have a good friend that started a few days ago, so I am going to try to catch up to her. I find that having someone to do something with really, really helps. Wish me luck! Push-up can be damn hard. LOL!
Today I am cooking Miso Soup for my Boys. They love it when I make it for them. Pretty healthy and low points too. I am also going to make a vegetable soup today for the crock pot to have for whenever we want a snack. My oldest especially loves soup. Soup and salad, how can you go wrong!
I closed down my Mom’s Making Time for Mom’s MeetUp group this past Sunday. It was time. I have had it going since, well, I can’t remember… either February 2008, or 2009. I just feel like it was the right time and the right thing to do. I am going to look into maybe joining some other groups on my own and take it from there. Life is an adventure right?!
I am going to be doing the Color Run here in Tempe this weekend with my family and a friend. I can’t wait! It just looks so fun and exciting for us all and such a great cause!
I also signed my Husband and I up for the Skirt Chaser 5k. Looks like a blast as well. I joined with a few friends and also found out at the birthday dinner I was at the other night that a bunch of those girls will be there too. Woo hoo! Something fun and healthy to look forward too. 🙂
