Feeling better

I'm up and rambling this AM with lots and lots to do!  I have to sort some items I have sold, finish up more laundry (it never ends!), mow the yard, and then drop off some sales.  Busy busy!  LOL  Hubby is starting the day off with working on the cars.  Mine needs the oil and oil filter changed, air filter checked, and the other fluids checked.  He's going to check over his car, too.  Then look over and work on the car that we have up for sale.  He is hoping that he has found the source of the problems and we can repair it and get it sold.  :)  I really hope so... I'm sick of it taking up space in the driveway!  I'd LOVE to get the carport put in, but I want that out of the way first.  So, fingers crossed!

My weight this AM (with my cycle) is 187!  Woot!  I'm pretty happy with that.  I know it isn't that big of a deal, but it is MUCH better than the 192 I was seeing not too long ago.  However, I'm thinking that I won't have a 'whoosh' after my cycle.  I don't feel bloaty at all.  BUT, I AM hoping I can drop a few more pounds before vacay.  Especially since I know I'll probably gain a bit down there.  I always gain on vacay no matter how good I am!  Probably from all of the different activities, food I can't track as much as I could at home, etc.  I would really love to lose 3 to 4lbs. before I go.  I think I have right at 2 weeks.  So, we will see.  Going to do my best and that is all I can do.  If I don't, then that's something to really kick butt for when I get back.  I've been complacent for too long.  But at least I've maintained and not gained.  And for me, that is just as important!  Mostly because I don't want to ride the roller coaster.  If I go up and down the same few pounds, that's normal, but I don't want to be losing and gaining the same 10lbs. over and over or gaining and gaining only to fight to lose it again.  I would rather stay in my 'range' and go from there.  In my mind, that means that I am learning something if I am able to maintain even when I'm not trying.  I hope it means that something is sticking in this head of mine and that it really has become a lifestyle instead of a diet.

UGH.  I had so much to write about and now I can't remember anything I had wanted to talk about.  :/  I hate when I do that.  I think that now I am getting awake, I keep thinking of all I want to do and looking outside at how pretty it is and well... I'm not thinking of sitting on here and typing up my blog.  I'm thinking of stuff I wanna get done!  And I probably should take it easy since I am still recovering from this last weeks exhaustion!  OH!  And I DID end up working out, but not for long since my body was fighting me so much.  Crap.  Lappy is dying!  So, this is all!  G'day!

  1. I gained on my vacation, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been- so I shouldn't complain. It was maybe three or four pounds. It probably would have been five or six, but we were very active. My granny made brownies, pie, and a cake, and we had ice cream too, so all the gain came from the half of the vacation when we were at her house. She made us biscuits and gravy, fried chicken, and other food like that as well. Whatcha gonna do, right?
    I actually did fine while we were in St. Louis.
