I can't believe it's been well over a week since I've last checked in!

Here's the scoop:

  • Weight loss is at a stand still...well, that's not entirely true. The scale did move last the wrong direction!  I was up about 5 pounds. I checked this morning and most of those 5 pounds are gone! Yeah! 
  • Workouts at the gym are great!  I usually want to cry, so I know they are working! :)
  • I need to work on getting the workouts done on my "off days" - too many excuses! 
  • I met with my "paid friend" (as my real friend so eloquently puts it) this week. We discussed how I'm having a hard time getting the daily stuff done. Not in a depressed, I don't wanna do it sort of's hard to explain but through a bit of chatter, I figured out that I'm bored. My kids are getting older now, it may be time to look (seriously) for some work. 

So, that's it from here. I will get back to the regularly scheduled program very soon, I promise!  And to all who's blogs I frequent regularly, I'm sorry I haven't been around to support you (you know who you are). Know that you are in my thoughts and I will catch up soon! 

Now, time for some shut-eye. 


  1. Sometimes things get overwhelming - just take it easy and tackle one task at a time. Do you have a plan for days when you don't go to the gym? Like what type of exercises you could do? I find that writing it all out helps me get things done.

  2. I agree with PlumPetals. We all get stubborn/bored and just have to take one thing at a time, or "a chapter" as I call it. Sometimes cleaning the fridge has "4 chapters" to it, in which I do one chapter and can't stand it anymore and then have to take a break to fold clothes or pet the dog. Then I come back for "chapter 2." See how ridiculous my mind is when I clean? Other times, I go "Snow White" and try to blank out (princess bimbo) when I clean so that the thoughts don't tire me out. That always makes my kids laugh.
