Cold as a bass out of ice water

I'm freezing.  :/  A serious cold front came through our area today and is dropping the temp faster than a dog with a slobbery toy.  Seriously.  COLD.  And I have a butt ton of stuff I should be doing.  I need to finish up the top coat of paint in the bathroom (cut in), I need to seal the tile downstairs and help hubby get the other stuff in, we will need to get the cats from the vet later and drop off my car, the house needs a SERIOUS deep clean from all of the projects.  I am delaying.  I don't want to do any of it.  I want to stay snuggled up on the couch with my blanket and hot coffee and just... VEG.  I'm tired, sore, and it is FN freezin' cold!!!!  AND, from where I did more yesterday than I thought I could, my arm hurts!  I think I have tennis elbow from all of the painting.  I finished priming the bathroom trim, hallway trim, and that poor poor patio door trim that has looked like hell for so long.  I even got the ceiling in the bathroom done although I think I will touch it up once more to be safe.  New ceilings use SO MUCH PAINT.  Then I made it outside and managed to seal up a HUGE area that had been damanged that I had started to repair back in the Spring.  But with all of the rain, it never got sealed.  Some had to be scraped and came off, however, but at least now it is sealed.  I will probably go in and do cosmetic repairs in the Spring and then prime and paint it, but for now they are sealed up and look so much better.  It's just that we had so much rain and so much strange weather here over this last year on top of the hubby's schedule that we never got as far as we had hoped.  Slowly but surely, though.

OH!  As for weight, I got on that ol' scale today and even with being sore and super busy, weight was actually 179.5.  I'm so glad that 183.5 wasn't real!  I told myself not to worry, but at the same time old habits die hard and it is VERY hard to get the negative thoughts out of your head at times.  But I managed to this time and I've done well on sticking it out.  I'm hoping that with every positive step I reinforce, the easier and easier it will be and so far, that seems to be the case.  You'd think after so many years of doing this, it would be easier.  It's just a learning process no matter how long you do it.  Something new is always coming to the front for you to learn and deal with. 

I guess that is all I got for now.  I feel like I just get on here with quick re-caps anymore and I've lost traffic.  But I'm not sure what to do to get more support on here.  I'm on MFP and I thought about switching over to that.  But since I talk about more than just weight loss, I'm not sure it would be appropriate.  Maybe I need to start adding more photos.  I keep saying I'm going to but I am SO lazy about it.  I think it's because it's such a pain for me!  My 'smartphone' is a pain when it comes to photos.  It is suppose to automatically back things up and then be able to transfer via my KIES program, but it isn't working.  I have to delete it and upload it four or five times and then it never finishes the transfer.  I haven't had an SD card for this phone so I can't just save to it and then transfer to here old school.  It's quite frustrating.  I don't know that it would help anyways.  I'm boring as snot.


  1. I have this secret fear sometimes that I'll jump on the scale and see a HUGE permanent jump. It definitely still gets me sometimes.

    Stay warm!!! It is super annoying to remove the SD card and upload photos sometimes. It's a back and forth thing. I sometimes take the easy way out and e-mail it from my phone instead.

  2. I blogged on MFP a bit, but it wasn't for me. I don't want to constantly write about weight loss anymore, because there is a lot more going on in my life! Sorry that I have been such an irregular blogger. I keep trying to get back into the swing of things, but when I stopped focusing on weight loss most of my readers drifted away. It takes a lot of effort to get new readers and support. You have to keep up with reading and commenting, and find blogs that you can actually relate to. There are only a couple of blogs that I am still reading because I just didn't have the time and energy for the hardcore blogging that I used to do. Honestly though, I have felt like blogging more again. I guess I'm trying to find the balance with everything. I like blog support and support in real life, and I want time to have it all!


Feel free to comment -- I love reading them and I try to respond! :D
