Wrapping it up

This week has been such a blur.
My blogging plan for the week was to talk about Jovi (check), summer camp, scouts and food, and a few other goodies that came to mind during the week.
And here we are.
With nothing done.

I have to tell you, I am looking forward to two things:

1. Bathroom completion.
2. September. Back to normal schedules sounds good to me right now!

Alright, let's talk a little business and then we'll move on to Summah Camp.

Weigh in was exactly the same.  I guess this maintenance thing is working out really well. I wasn't planning on being on this path, but it's working for me.  Considering the amount of stress I've been under this summer, I will take the maintenance as a complete and total success!

That all being said though, I need to add that I've had a little too many "fun" calories over the last few days.  I just made my son's birthday cake (a Minecraft TNT cake- came out pretty good). While I was decorating it, I found myself mindlessly eating some of the frosting. I caught on though and pushed the more tastier frosting out of reach so I wouldn't do that.

TMI warning....

On top of the cake, I'm also "sick".
I have an infection.
The girly kind.
It's a nasty, bad one too.
I'm also being tested for a UTI on top of it.
I started two meds late last week and every time I take this one medication, I find myself eating a bit more during the first day to two days afterwards (it's a one time pill).
It's been since Friday that I've been on meds. I was feeling a bit better yesterday but today isn't any better than yesterday.  Hopefully tomorrow will be better than both days!

I've probably had this infection for quite some time.  Why wouldn't I have known?  Well, I can often go fairly symptomless. I also have a high pain tolerance. Well, that's what I've been told anyway. Between you and I though, I'm a wimp.  My OB, dentist and a few other DR's have told me that they can't believe I haven't complained about certain things in the past.  When I had gal-stones, they were HUGE. I mean REALLY, REALLY BIG! The surgeon told me he's never seen them that large and it was a wonder I hadn't collapsed on the floor from all the pain. The funny thing with that is they were found "by accident".  Crazy, but it never really bothered me.  Sure, in retrospect I can say that the feelings I was feeling at the time were probably related to the stones but I was mobile so I guess the didn't bother me too much.

Anyway, I always find that when I have some sort of an infection, I won't lose any weight.  Truth be told, I was expecting a loss this past week.  Not a big one, but something. I was busy at summer camp and worked out a few times last week.  I didn't hate on the scale though. I take it as a success.

No worries, I am not going to stay here forever.  And I will NOT go back up!  I monitor everything and if I see I'm starting to gain, I pull everything right back in.  I'll talk more about my plans for a small end-of-summer weight loss later in the week.

Alright, I am getting tired and need to unwind before getting some shut-eye.  The Summer Camp stuff will just have to wait til tomorrow...

Thanks for stopping by and for putting up with my lack of writing and lack of losing.  I really appreciate your support!


  1. That is so NOT fun! Hope you're feeling better & clean soon!

  2. Although I'm loving being on vacation, I also can't wait until September when I'll be back to a more normal routine.

    Hope you feel better soon!!!
