This week has been completely off. Yesterday felt like Saturday and today, Sunday. However, as I did not get any homework done today it’s good that it’s not. I was diligent in doing my chores but that was about it. What I did do was watch the 4th episode of the 4th season of Downton Abbey. I must admit it, I just can’t wait for it to air here in the States and so each week I find it online. It is such a great series. Upon this last episode’s end I was not satiated and looked for something else from the period to watch. I Googled it and found another miniseries, Parade’s End. I assure you, it was no Downton but it did have Benedict Cumberbatcb and Rebecca Hall (who I’ve seen in Lay on the Favorite). I must admit it, I’m a Cumberbitch! I am often enamored by all things British. The hubby and I spent five hours watching all 5 episodes. To be honest, I was shocked he was interested in watching it. However, I do believe he likely did it because it was what I wanted to do. Thoughtful.
I’ve also been really good lately. What I mean is that for over a week I have been watching/counting my calories. In conjunction with Lose It and my Up Band I have been trying to do what I can to be serious about my health. I’m often so tired and my cravings, well, I’ve been giving in to those and the last thing I needed to do was to have a delicious large vanilla milkshake from Chick-fil-A everyday. Since 10/10/13 I have avoided desserts. I wouldn’t say that I’m depriving myself. It’s been good that I have not been craving it, really. I also only get on the scale once a week. Mondays. I refuse to be the type to get on the scale daily. I think I’d go mad if I did. I don’t want to be discouraged and I think that if I weighed daily I’d be even more paranoid about what I ate. I’m hopeful that Monday’s weigh in will be a good one. I’ve been very good with not using up all of my allotted calories in the day. I’ve even tried out two products by Advocare, V16 Energy and Spark. They’ve both really great as a means to getting more vitamins and nutrients. I’m considering doing their 24-day challenge. However, at almost $200 I think I’ll have to wait a little while.
