Today was my scheduled rest day. I stayed within my points, I did not go over, and I got in all of my requirements. I'm really proud of that. I needed to get right back to it today, since my cheese & crackers episode last night resulted in a 2 pound weight gain overweight. Ugh. Now, I know that most of that might possibly be water retention, but I'm still up, and I don't like that at all.
I have taken another step closer to applying to PhD programs. At work today I printed out recommendation forms from GWU, CUNY Grad Center, and American University. I went to campus and dropped them off in my professors' mailboxes. Hopefully, those recommendations will go out soon. Now, I just need to apply online to these schools, have my transcripts sent, and everything will be set. I'll probably do that at work. It's just easier to do it at work.
After I dropped off the recommendation forms, I headed to Macy's to pick up birthday gifts for Sonia. Her first birthday is tomorrow, and her party will be this coming Sunday. I got her three adorable little outfits, and a puzzle with farm animals. So cute. I'll wrap everything on Saturday and get her a cute little birthday card too. I'm excited about it. My best friend Wendy will be going to the party too. Because my brother lives an hour away, she has never met Sonia, which is such a shame. I can't wait for her to meet Sonia, my little baby.
OK, so I am positively convinced that my late snacking is over. I am going to have another loss this week, I just know I am. It feels good to be positive. Let's all make good choices.
