Today's wins..

1) I reallly reallly wanted a pop today but I was trying to hold out for 4 more pounds before I 'celebrated' with an afternoon pop (a bad habit I've taken up) but it was SOOOO pretty out that I didn't want to head back to my office after a visit yet so I swung by a 7-11 and got a SMALL fountain coke, a cheese stick and smart pop popcorn.  The win is the small coke (not a large) and the fact that I didn't get the snickers that I REALLY WANTED and would have usually gotten.

2) We had planned on eating leftover chicken and dumplings but my kiddo's new shirt came from zulily and it was pretty much our subliminal message all day and my husband called me on my way home for a 'last call' for Taco Tuesday.  We HAD to do it.  I mean it was meant to be. ;)

Awhile ago she was eating dinner at our friends house and they asked her what she thought her parents were eating.. she thought a moment and said, "Tacos! Cuz today's Taco Tuesday!" then she thought again and said, "Oh, bummer!" cuz she was missing out.. or so she thought hahaa. So now Tuesday basically = Taco Tuesday.  The cutest thing was when I showed her this shirt she read it to me immediately!!

So we went and had a fun family time.  The win is that I still got on the treadmill for 1.33 miles! While I don't recommend running after Taco Tuesday, I am glad I did it.  I did a 5 minute warm up walk, then did run a minute, walk 90 seconds for a 20 minute total on the treadmill.  I also did 15 squats and 30 jumping jacks.

3) I really connected today with a client who I hadn't quite made a connection with and that was a major win.

4) I got to start another chapter book with my little bookworm today.  We started, Dinosaurs Before Dark,t he first in the Magic Tree House Series.  I've always success with preschoolers with this series so I can't wait to get her hooked! We just finished, The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl and before that we read The Runaway Mouse by Beverly Cleary.  I can't wait until she's a bit older so we can read the Little House series!

What did you have for dinner on this Tuesday? What were your wins today? What chapter books did you read with your parents as a kid?
