Right now I am feeling all mellow and relaxed. Probably because I just had pizza and Oliver Winery Sangria wine. It was all yummy! It was the perfect ending to this week or a great beginning for the weekend, it is all about perspective you know.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago(March 2nd to be exact), I woke up feeling horrible. I was nauseous, my bones ached, and I just felt blah. I took a sick day but I think really that it was a mental health day. My work has been really stressful lately(I don't know about any other states but right now in Indiana education and teachers have no funding or support). I literally feel like that all the negativity and stress in my life was making me ill. During my "sick"day besides napping I had time to just think. Think about work, my home, my husband, my kids, my spiritual life, and just me in general. That day, along with spending 45 minutes trying to find something to wear for church that fit or didn't make me feel fat the following Saturday has made me have a shift in thinking. I have been tracking my food points, drinking water, measuring my food and exercising since Monday(3/8). I feel great! It will be interesting to see if I have lost any weight on Monday. Even with eating pizza(Papa Murphy's vegetable d-lightful pizza) and wine! Yes, I measured my wine, 4oz for 2 points. That is what I love about Weight Watchers, I can still have all the "normal" stuff but I just have to have portion control or have it a little differently prepared. I keep telling myself "Twenty-one days, do this for that long. That is how long it takes to make something a habit!" Hopefully, after 21 days it will be a life long habit! So yay me! Marc and the boys say that they will clap for me and give me stickers if I lose weight each week just like the meetings at Weight Watchers. Hopefully, they will be breakin' out the stickers on Monday!

Happy Weekend!
