That is what I was faced with today and I gave in. I was at the mall and the cookie store called my name and I answered. I managed to ignore it when I was there earlier this week but I just didn't want to today. I know I can have cookies if I want them but I have been trying really hard to not over do it with the sweets. I have such a terrible sweet tooth! It's okay, I came home and made a really good lunch and I am past it. I am at the inlaws or dinner tonight which means that I will have a really yummy salad (my mother in law makes a really good one!) and then I am not sure but I can keep it in check.

I actually got 30 minutes of good activity in while I watched the hockey game last night. I improvised and used the Wii balance board as a step and did some step with weights that I made up as I went along. It got my heart rate up and it felt good to not just sit on my butt! I treated myself with some smartpop and a rootbeer after I finished my workout and enjoyed the game!

On another note I have been doing really good with the budget that we made up for the new year. I had found myself spending kind of mindlessly while on mat leave and really needed to get it under control. I have been doing some clearance rack shopping getting clothes for Grace for next winter. It makes it easier on me if I am prepared at a good price =)


  1. I love bargain shopping. I'm always looking through the clearance racks! Smart pop and Rootbeer sounds DELISH!

  2. You've been doing great!! A cookie isn't going to hurt you as long as you are still the one in control, and it sounds like you didn't let it derail the rest of your day! :)

    Hubby and I are aiming to spend smarter this year too!

  3. Good job on the activity!! I´m still wanting to get the wii board ;)
