Today was a scheduled off day from the gym.  The last thing I needed was an off day after the week we’ve had.  We opted for short bursts of outside fun.  The kids and I headed to WW.  It was nice to go today since I missed the meeting last week.

Since it was 55 degrees, we opted for parking extra far away.  The meeting is in the back of a plaza.  It’s probably 1/4 mile or so from where we parked to the meeting.  I’ll have to wear my pedometer some day to double check.  We park and walk along the stores down to the meeting location.  My son usually runs ahead and my daughter rides in the stroller.  It was a beautiful day for it.

I’m not sure it’s worth going day by day for a recap this week.  But, I was down 4.2 pounds.  Although some of that was “jeans”, so was not and that felt good.  I’m not quite back to my lowest since my daughter was born, but I’m close.

The meeting was about your dream kitchen.  We talked all about what tools need to be employed in the kitchen to be successful on program.  I think a separate post is in order for my kitchen set up.  More to come.

At the end of the meeting, we made the trek back to the car.

After a haircut for my son, we walked over to the grocery store and picked up some YELLOW bananas (boy are they hard to find) and walked back.

After nap time, we played outside.  The kids enjoyed the dry black top near the garage.  I enjoyed taking the trash out, sweeping the driveway and picking up the trash near our curb.

It was a busy and active day.  I’m looking forward to a gym workout at the JCC tomorrow.
