Today has been an all about the yard kinda day. I had planned on taking it easy today since we slept in SO late. Normally, we are up and at'em later than many, but not THIS late. I think it was almost NOON. I'm not sure why my youngest slept that late... Normally we are all up around 9:30 to 10:30 so this was really unusual for us. I'm not a morning person by any means, but sleeping that late was just too darn late! So, I woke up thinking that even though I felt ok, I must be exhausted to have slept that late. I completely planned to just chill all day. But that isn't what happened...
After breakfast/lunch, I just COULD NOT sit still. So, I decided to mow since I had done it the other day and gotten the front done, but the back was still a mess. I decided to mow in the front anyways just to keep it under control. So, I mowed all of the front and all of the back! Even most of the area that gets push mowed! The grass was good and dry, so I had no issues with slipping and could do more. :) I did that and rested for a bit and then thought, I should clean that dog run. It's been stinking SO. BAD. So, I scooped. Then thought, I should smooth it out where the dog has been digging. So, I smoothed. And THEN, I decided to go ahead and spray it since I had everything to do the job. I got out my handy garden sprayer, Dawn, and hose. And I SATURATED the dog run even washing their house and a 2 or 3 ft. perimeter around it the fence. The smell is gone! The flies/bugs are gone! WOOT! I was so so so happy! I thought I was done so I came in for a break. Nope. Still felt like going! So, I threw in some laundry and mixed up some weed killer. I sprayed the entire side area, around the front beds, mailbox, AND the curb! I got it all done! ALL OF IT! If you can believe it, I then came in and purged an entire box of 'Important Papers'. My recycling is SO FULL! HA! I don't know where all of the energy came from. I really don't! But I got a lot done and I'm darn pleased. I bet I'll be a zombie tomorrow. LOL
On another note, I weighed today after eating again (because I forgot) and my weight after food was 177 so I'm thinking I am around the same. AND, I started my cycle. SO, I guess I lost a couple of weeks of losing, but I didn't gain so that is good. I was a bit stalled out anyways before hand and trying to figure it out, so I don't know if I really lost any time or not. No matter -- back to tracking today. Still going to stay at the 1600 or less mark. I don't think that long term I could go under that for long. I do have low days, but I don't think I could do it daily. I'm not sure how people live at like, 1200. I know it can be done, but I don't think I would want to do it long term. I realize I would hit my goal much faster if I did, but I don't think I could do it. I've thought of reducing some, down to 1400 or 1500, but I never seem to be able to do it long term. I guess if I get to a point where I'm just not moving, I'll do it.
I guess that is all I have for tonight. It's getting late and I am trying to decide what to do with the rest of my night. I have some TV recordings to watch and return to my Mom, I have a book to finish, and I have a new movie I have wanted to watch. But I can't do all of these so maybe I will just do one. The book is really good... I think that I may do that. I can watch the movie as I go to sleep. :)
Well, the dogs are barking like mad so I guess I will go. Until later!
