It's The Little Things

It's the little things that are making me smile.  First, this evening I made a "date" with a wonderful friend of mine.  We're meeting Saturday morning at 9am for a walk!  That's right...a walk!  Not lunch, not coffee...a walk!  It makes me smile that we get to spend time together - it's been way too long - but I love the fact that we're going walking!

CME handed me the debit card a few minutes ago and said, "order that protein stuff you wanted."  So I order this: Unjury Protein Starter Kit.  Seems silly, but I'm super-excited about that!  Wasn't too happy that the shipping was almost 1/3 the price of the product, but still excited that the first order is placed!

Tomorrow, I get to see some of my very favorite people!  Yes, we're having lunch, but we all eat lunch anyway.  I know the restaurant and I already know what I'm having; a yummy spinach salad.  Yay for planning, right?

Also, I was a bit concerned that I'd not done so well lately.  I've not journaled like I need to the past couple of weeks, but I have made conscious decisions like smaller portions, no snacking, etc.  (I know!  I know!!!)  So this morning, I reluctantly pulled out the Wii (the most accurate "scale" I own).  Although I do get a little annoyed when she tells me, "Step On" quickly followed by "Ooh!", the scale went down 2.4# from last Thursday!  I'm so glad no one was awake to see me do a silly little victory dance!!

So yeah...this week is good (even if I've still not heard from the insurance company!)  The little things are BIG things to me!

  1. Have you had Turoni's Spinach Salad? It's DIVINE! I always make sure we go there if we go out, so that I know I can make a safe choice.

    Yeah for support from CME!!! :)

    1. I've not tried that one! Thanks for the heads up. We're all meeting at LIC's downtown for lunch and they've got a really good spinach salad there too. It's what I got the last time we met. Funny thing...the ice cream hasn't tempted me at all!

  2. I just stumbled across your blog and am so glad I did. Looking forward to supporting you on your journey. Glad to hear you've got some fun things planned AND that the scale was nice to you this week.

    1. Hi Paige. I checked out your blog as well. Congratulations on such a great journey! I'm sure I'll be visiting often.
