Day 37 of 365: Hydration
This is my water bottle (hence the reason MY name is written on it) -- carefully marked off for my six 8 oz. servings of water I am supposed to drink daily. At the moment, I have gulped down 4.5, which leaves me less than 10 minutes to drink the remaining 1.5 (before midnight, DUH!). Considering how much I SOOO hate water, this may be a challenge.
I gained half a pound at my WW meeting this morning. My leader, Jane, asked if that was expected since I still had a grin on my face. I told her I actually expected worse as I had gotten married just over the weekend and gave myself permission to relax a bit and not count points for the week. I think 1/2 lb. wasn't too shabby considering the juicy, mouthwatering steak I devoured...not to mention some absolutely GORGEOUS tiramisu I plowed through the night before last. I'm proud of me anyway.

After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
