Dad got home Wednesday! I did not tell the kids he was coming so they were very surprised when he walked in the door around 5 pm! He left West Texas around 9 am so they would have been on pins and needles all day if they had known. He was off for one week after Thanksgiving, and has been gone since then except for a couple of quick trips home - twice for a few hours and 3 times he was home overnight.
I share that because it definitely affects my exercise and eating habits. When he isn't home, I do not sleep well or enough and often don't eat well or enough either. In addition to that, I had to handle the Christmas shopping as these were not planned trips and our planned shopping 'dates' suffered.
So, even though I did not do much planned exercise, I did take each of the four kids on a individual shopping date which involved quite a bit of walking as well as one shopping day to myself (still more walking). I am within a pound and a half of my challenge goal so hopefully I will see that goal met!
And finally, you will have to excuse my 3 weeks of lack of sleep for the rambling nature of this post!
One more week (and it's half over!) to the end of this Fit Mommy Friday Challenge.
