Weekend Update

What another crappy weekend! Weather wise, that is.   Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Not this year. This weather is getting depressing!  The kicker is that this past week was beautiful. Could it continue into the weekend? No. What's up with that? We have a million things we want to fit in this month but won't be able to get to them all if this rainy, dreary weather continues. Blech.

There. That's the end of my whine for the day. Sorry. Just getting sick of this.

So, I mentioned that I am just 6.8 pounds away from hitting 50 pounds lost!  Yikes! I want to hit that milestone more than anything right now. It's well within my reach. I just need to control what goes in seeing as I have little control on what I can burn. I am feeling like I'm falling apart with all these injuries and such. The bike is getting boring. I mean, a total yawn! I'm getting frustrated with my feet, yet am about to be released from physical therapy. In reality they are way better than they ever have been. Just wish there was more we could do so I didn't have to suffer on the bike.

Last night I did a bunch of leg stuff outside while watching the boys play. It was nice to have a change of scenery. And I must have done something right as my legs were hurting today. Again though, it's tough doing stuff outside on unstable ground with my stupid feet. They get mad at me. I get mad at them. We're always fighting. :D

I'm off to see an orthopedist next week for my arm. I was telling my physical therapist about how I've let it rest for the last three weeks and am getting worse rather than better. She said to get it checked out so that's what I am doing. I'll probably wind right back with her for my arm when my feet are done. Too funny.

The good news is that I am finding out real quick how little I really need to eat now. I've been getting full after I eat just a bit. It's the best feeling!  I've never really had that full-feeling until I've really stuffed my face! Like today, we went out for lunch because I was craving a skillet queso. I didn't have nearly as much as I would have in the past. I also ordered a bowl of soup. Should have ordered the cup - I only ate (maybe) half the bowl. What a wonderful feeling and accomplishment to feel the queues my body is sending me that I'm nearing fullness.

Today we just walked around the mall. Tomorrow we'll be off to do a corn maze (providing the rain holds). If not, I will hit-the-gym or I'll dig out an old exercise DVD and see what I can do.

What are your plans looking like?


  1. Hi Jenn! I'm going to cheer you towards your 50 lb. goal! You're so close! And, as I'm losing some weight myself, every few pounds really does make the body feel better! Your exercise will be better. You will feel better. You will look better.

    So keep your eyes on the prize! And I really do hope that you have a prize planned for meeting your goal, because it's coming up soon!

    :-) Marion
