Work + Greeted my boyfriend who arrived from a business trip... Yippie!

Today I was feeling blue because I cheated on my diet last night and gained 3 pounds in one day! I know, I know, I shouldn't cheat... I couldn't help it though! Anyway, that made me feel pretty down today. So my mom, being the thoughtful person she is, decided to surprise me with flowers to make me feel happy.

She knows how much I love having colorful flowers in my room. It really cheers me up! So she put a bouquet of flowers on each of my two nightstands... Isn't she the sweetest ever?! Thanks mom!

Another thing that makes me feel happy is this monkey decoration. My brother Michael (who lives in Spain) gave it to me, so I always remember him when I see it. This little trinket also reminds me of my boyfriend because we call each other monkeys. Plus, it's just so darn cute! It's funny how one little thing can bring so many positive feelings.

    Don't beat yourself up about "cheating". It's not cheating. It's allowing yourself a splurge and that's OKAY. You can't deny yourself everything forever. Besides, those three pounds could be a gain in muscle, which is a good thing, or just water weight which doesn't even matter. Don't worry about it. :)
