Wi day - and grumpy me

I am grumpy today, and the only reason I can think of is that I am VERY tired. 

Yesterday my daughter competed in the Ontario Cheerleading championships, so we had to get up at 6 a.m. I went to bed the night before at midnight because I was fiddling with her hairpiece that she wanted to wear - trying to find a way that it would actually stay in. So, with the time change that meant 5 hours of sleep - then we were at competition from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. 6 hours at a VERY loud cheer competition when you are tired - NOT GOOD!!

We went for lunch with the in-laws afterwards, and then by the time we drove back to our town I was able to settle in for about an hour before I had a meeting to go to at my church. The night didn't end until about 11:30 when I was finally able to get to bed - so that is probably why I am so BEAT today.

I went to weight watchers this morning and I am down 1.2 lbs. Its a good loss, but still not as much as I gained last week, so I was hoping for more. I checked back in my ww log, and I seem to have been battling the same few pounds since January 26th. 
Jan. 26 - 155.2
Feb. 2 - 153.8
Feb. 9 - 154.6
Feb. 17 - 153.4
Mar. 2 - 155.2
Mar.9 - 154.0

SO I am sick of the yo-yoing, and time to get serious again. I KNOW KNOW KNOW that it is majorly due to the fact that I have not been exercising (man, I must sound like a broken record with this) so I have to get serious. I have decided that at the VERY least, I will be walking the kids to and from school this week. That means back and forth 3 times as I have drop off, get my son at lunch time and then get my daughter after school. That should be good for SOMETHING since it takes about 15-20 mins to walk to their school.

FYI, tired or not - cheer competition was totally worth it. My daughters team placed 4th in the province!!! GO KITTIES!! 

This is her on the top of one of the stunts early in the routine:
This is her going up in the pyramid towards the end of the routine - she is looking down - NOT GOOD - lol

This is her helping to hold the trophy and showing that us all that they placed 4th!!

Aww what a cutie your girly is!

The time change sucks - I hope you have a relaxing day and get to bed early tonite - then tomorrow you can be all energetic! Sometimes we just need a down day!

I hear you with the exercise - I need to do more as well. I wish I could be walking - today it is -33 with the wind chill in Calgary! I can't wait for spring!

Yay for the loss!

Yeah, apparently exercise makes all the difference. ;-D
Plus, it's hard to eat well at those big events!
