Yearning for… MYSELF.

Cause I’m not sure who this fat chick is!

Still not working… April 14, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 3:33 pm

Most of my blog stuff still isn’t working.  I can get on here to blog the same way by going to the main page, signing in, and then going to another blog and clicking on the ‘Site Admin’ link.  But I still can’t open some blogs or comment and I still can’t just jump on here like I would like.  UGH.  I sure hope they get this fixed soon!  Why is it that my blog is taking longer than most to fix?  It’s nothing special, but it’s my support and release.  Does that make sense?  OY.

My weight for the last 3 or 4 days has been 190.  It will flash 189.5 then roll to 190.0.  I’m not sure why it’s not moving down… my calories over the last few days have been spot on… if not a tiny bit lower.  So, I’m a bit annoyed that it isn’t letting more go.  I had really hoped to be firmly in the 180’s by now since I’m doing pretty well.  I had really thought I’d see 189 this AM.  Even 188.5 by Sunday.  But I’m guessing that isn’t going to happen.  bleh.  It makes me bummed but I am trying to just be pleased with the 190.  I don’t really ever expect or want huge losses, but now and again a 2lber would be nice! Especially when I am trying hard and making sure that I don’t go over cals.  As far as I can gather, I only went over one time on one snack.  I know it wasn’t enough to keep me from losing.  But I am a bit bummed still.  I guess I just feel a bit bummed after my last post.  I feel like I need to be making progress.  I mean, I’m only down 6lbs. from about this time last year so I had hoped to lose another couple of pounds before I got to the one year mark.  Now granted, I went on vacay and had some other issues go on so when all was said and done, I will be happy to just weigh less this time since I could’ve given up and GAINED.  But I didn’t.  But I would’ve loved for it to have been more than just 6lbs.  But every pound has to count or I WOULD get discouraged.  It’s just making me feel a bit down.  Not a lot.  Not enough to throw me off track.  Just enough to make me feel a bit unhappy and wish that I was going faster.

Overall I guess I’m pretty happy with where I’m at.  I only begin to worry when I see people and they don’t give a positive reaction.  Or they say, “You’re still in the 190’s?”  That sorta kicks me in the balls as they say.  UGH.  I know I shouldn’t let myself be bothered by it, but it just makes me worry that I should be working harder.  But in the end, I have my reasons for doing it this way and know that in the end this is the only way I’m going to be truly successful.

Speaking of being successful… shopping has been more successful lately!  I have gotten some GREAT tops lately!  And two dresses I LOVE from Ross.  One a L and one a M.  But don’t get excited — I think that second dress was just cut big.  I’m just happy about the L!  Even last year most of the dresses I got were XL if not 1X!  So, to be firmly in L makes me ecstatic.  :D  I can’t imagine the day I need a M.  I would think I won’t be in that for quite a while so that is why I was ok with getting the L’s.  I don’t think my tops will change much between the number I am and about 20 more pounds.  I honestly don’t think even the bottoms will change much and since I was a 14 before, I have plenty without having to buy.  I’m hoping I don’t have to buy for a until I’m a 10!  It’s probably wishful thinking to hope I can make the 14’s work until I’m a 10, though, huh?  Oh well, I will take it as it comes… if I have to buy more at some point, then so be it.  I’d rather lose the weight than worry about having to replace my clothes!  Especially since this is slow so I know it’s not going to happen overnight.  Although, I have enjoyed the shopping to some extent so maybe it wouldn’t be so bad!  ;)

Well, I need to wind this up.  I’ve been typing off and on today while doing other things like wiping down cabinets, doing laundry, and picking up.  I need to work on a project or two now, so I need to get going.  And the bad thing is that now I feel a headache coming on.  UGH!  Oh well, off I go!

 

Coma April 11, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 11:44 am

I feel like I am in a coma today.  My limbs all feel sluggish and my brain is up and working but then suddenly mid-sentence I realize I combined two different sentences.  So…. typing this may take a while.  Youngest was up FOREVER last night.  I HATE having to do this, but I really am at a loss as to what else to do.  I feel like the main reason he gets up is because he has gotten in the habit of having a bottle during the middle of the night so he is getting up and then expecting one.  So, to get him to sleep through I am denying him the bottle.  And he is PLENTY old enough at 21mos. not to need a bottle.  He fussed, fought, cried and screamed for over 2hrs. last night.  I kept going in, getting him settled and then going back to bed.  Then he’d be right back up.  Then I tried spanking and saying NO — it’s night night and there is no crying.  He kept on.  So, then I just closed the door and just let him cry.  And cry he did!  So, then I finally just got up with him.  He walked around for a bit and then realized, hey!  I’m SLEEPY!  And crawled up on the couch to lay on me and go to sleep.  But I never gave him a bottle.  Has he gotten up before and not wanted a bottle?  Yes.  But usually he wants a bottle.  I am hoping that even though this is a battle, that his body will get use to not having that after a few nights and he will stop waking up.  In the meantime, I’m exhausted.  I couldn’t get up to get oldest on the bus this AM and my husband had to take him to school.  Not to mention, I had wanted to let him sleep a bit since I knew that he’d probably been kept awake by youngest, too.  UGH.  I hope we make it through this week.

On a good note, at least all my water weight is gone from Flo.  AND, at least I am trying really hard not to stress over every little thing.  Because I’m tired and when I’m tired, I tend to stress over the details like the housework.  Which is behind at this point and I don’t really care.  The house isn’t bad, just not as clean as I would like it.  Like, I need to vacuum and then mop, dishes are piling up, and dusting will need to be done soon.  AND, I’ve not worked on a single project this week.  But instead of being upset I’m just trying to tell myself that this is how it goes.  I’m going to have great days and bad days and the more I stress, the more bad days I have.  So, why stress?  I’m just going on and when a good stretch comes along I’ll get caught back up.  And besides, it’s mostly picked up and everyone is clean and fed and the bathroom is holding up well from the last good rubdown.  Which means that overall, the house is picked up just not nitty gritty clean.  And you know what?  That’s ok.  However, I still haven’t worked out.  Just too darn tired.  I tried to yesterday, but I just ached all over; same today.  I even picked up and everything so that the floor was clear but I just wanted to sit.  I still hope to get up and do something today, though.  Oldest is going to the dentist later for his first filling, so that should be… miserable.  But we will see.  I hope he doesn’t freak.  If I have the energy I may go do a bit more shopping after that.  Just being out may make me feel better.

I guess I should say my weight this AM was 190 flat… again!  But I’ve not seen that in a while so I am tickled.  I am just going to keep doing what I’m doing and hope to keep going down.  That’s what I’ve always done and so far, it’s been working.  Although lately I have worried that maybe I’m not working hard enough.  I mean, I still have so far to go… a little less than 40lbs.  Closer to 35 I guess!  But still.  Should I be working harder to get the weight off?  I wonder sometimes when I am talking to people if I should… sometimes seems like they think I’m not going fast enough.  And then my own doubts and worries creep in and I wonder if I am doing myself justice losing the way I am.  I mean, I spent part of my 20’s being heavy… Do I want to spend my 30’s that way?  But then there’s that do I want to lose it quickly only to gain it back?  Because that is what I am afraid I would do.  I am a routine person and the routine I’m in now may be slow, but so far it’s working and it’s building up good habits for me.  But do I know enough now that I could be a bit more on my game and lose a bit more?  I do think I need to buckle down a bit since last month was a 1lb. month.  But should I be working harder?  I just don’t know what the answer is.  And my body worries probably don’t help.  I know that there isn’t much I can do about that, either, but it still plagues me.  BAH.  I’m stressing myself out thinking about this when in reality I just need to keep going and ride this out.  It’s been the only thing that has worked so why not keep going?  Even if last month wasn’t great, it was still progress even during a stressful time.  Yup.  Progress not perfection.  Really wish I could remember who it was that said that…

Ok, enough ramblings from me.  I need to at least try to do a few things today and sitting here going on and on isn’t one of them.  Oh and Pepa, I’m not going to Tumblr.  It’s more artsy than bloggy.  LOL

 

Another Email… April 9, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 11:25 am

I just sent out another email, but I don’t know if they will even respond.  I don’t do the forums, but I do know that I’ve been on at least 4 blogs in the last day or so and all of us are having issues.  I hope this is fixed soon.  I have decided to keep toughing it out for now.  Mostly because the reason I blog here is for the support.  I just know I won’t get that through another blogger site.  But if the issues continue I guess I may move.  I don’t know what other choice I will have.  I mean, if I can’t comment or anything, it will be pointless, right?  I’ve decided to stay on Tumblr.  Not to really blog, but just to follow the DIY blogs I’ve already linked.  I really like them and well… couldn’t hurt to follow!  I guess it’s no worse than something like Twitter.  Except that I can learn new things.  LOL

Weight is 191.5 this AM.  So, going to continue lots of water and hope I get more sleep tonight.  Youngest was up a hundred times it felt like last night and I am dragging heavily today.  I don’t feel like doing much of anything and well…  I don’t think I will.  I think I will try to take it easy.  It’s back to school for us tomorrow so I will probably get all the school stuff ready and maybe do some laundry.  I also need to pay bills and balance the checkbook and work on taxes, but I am just going to do a little at a time.  Like, I want to work on bills now.  I am too tired to do too much more at one sitting.  Going to nuke my coffee, too.

So, I’m off for now.  I may be back for more later.  Have a good one everyone!

 

Lost April 8, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 8:11 pm

I’m feeling sort of lost with my blog not working correctly.  I fear that I am going to lose my support system and friends and be too mad to move forward with another blog.  Which is my current concern.  I just don’t get why they can’t get this fixed — what is the deal?  I’m not a computer person, but there has GOT to be some reason there are this many people with this issue!  And why is it only CERTAIN blogs are being fixed and replied to?  AARGH!  I am quickly getting to the point where I don’t know what to do.  It should be easy — I should just open another blog on Blogger since the Tumblr one just isn’t what I need.  But I don’t want to!  I want to stay on here and it’s frustrating and annoying that I can’t do my regular thing on here!  I feel like a repeating record.  I guess the time is coming to shut up about it.  *sigh*

As far as weight goes, Flo is almost over and my weight this AM was 192.0.  I can’t even update my stats page.  UGH.  Anyways, that’s up 1.5 from my low weight of 190.5.  Considering I have Flo here for a visit, I’m feeling pretty good about that!  Especially since the 1st day I saw 194.5.  I would’ve freaked if this hadn’t been my regular thing lately.  I HATE the bloat.  BLEH.  But I am hoping that by tomorrow my weight will be down even more.  I would LOVE to see the number go even past my lowest of 190.5.  That would be awesome.  I just need to stay on track with my food this week.  Today and the next few days won’t be too bad with the hubby on nights, but then he is off for 3 days.  And even then, I’m not so worried about the food as the fact that we will once again be working on the yard and well, I swell up like crazy!  It’s mostly going to be brush burning, but we all know how that goes… But it’s got to be done.  We need it cleaned out so we can have a dead tree removed, some new trees and bushes put in, and some fence repairs, too.  And until that is all cleaned out and repaired and all that jazz, we can’t really do much else to the yard.  We also need to get our dog run put in because I can’t deal with trying to pooper scoop a yard of our size with kids.  I am tired of them going out to play only to come in because someone stepped or fell in poop.  And our male dog is a kamikaze pooper — he just goes wherever it drops!  It drives me NUTS.  Plus we need to finish caulking, do some paint, do our covered area…  Man oh man is the list long!!!  :O  My point is, we have a lot of different things we need to work on so I’m worried I won’t get under just from being swollen.  Anytime I do that kind of work, I swell up so bad!  UGH.

Other than that, things have been somewhat quiet around here.  Our Easter weekend has been so good and I am so thankful for all we have.  But… I’m afraid I may be a weird parent.  We didn’t do a ton of candy and stuff…. even our golden egg… We did some candy, stickers, money, and little plastic toys like bugs and things.  And the golden egg had $20 in it!  :O  My oldest found it and he was tickled!  Then our baskets had books, goo, new crayons or markers, and things like that.  Only two small things of candy.  I don’t mind being weird since we don’t want to keep all that junk in the house, but I do worry when he goes to school his friends will be talking about all the candy they got and well, we just don’t do that.  But at least he can brag about his Angry Bird that we got instead of a rabbit and his goo egg that had a bug in goo in an egg!  It’s cool but my youngest freaked out when he touched it.  It was SO funny!!!  Anyways, like I said things have been quiet and I’m glad.  I need some peace and quiet for a change.  I don’t handle too much craziness well.  LOL

Ok, well, I am going to jump off of here.  I need to put the kiddos to bed here in a bit and then I think instead of watching TV, I may instead start a new book.  It will be hard to put a book down at bedtime, but oh well!  At least it will help me relax and go to sleep…. I hope!  Please let this blog get fixed soon!  PLEASE!  UGH.

 

Bull April 6, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 11:33 am

I am starting to get tired of the bull on here.  It’s been that week and STILL no repair.  I still have trouble signing in, I still can’t leave comments, and I still can’t update anything.  AARGH.  I don’t know what else to do.  I tried to send two emails through here and then one directly (thanks Unskinny!) but still no repair and not even a response.  What the hell???  I just don’t get why they aren’t fixing this issue!  Obviously, it’s not just me but they are ignoring it!  Surely there are more than one person doing this and surely they aren’t ALL out of town at the same time?  And what’s worse is my word processor program isn’t working so right now, I can’t even transfer my blogs to my USB!!!  ANNOYING.  Thinking of going to Blogger now.  I don’t think Tumblr is right for me.

UGH.  Not going to get to write much today — parents on the way!  Just wanted to say my weight is 194, but I expected that since Flo is here.  Big fun I tell you.  I guess I won’t weigh-in officially this Sunday but instead will wait and do it the following week.  Wish me luck… I hope to see 18something.  LOL  Have a good weekend and for those that celebrate, Happy Easter!

 

Sick and Tired!!!! April 1, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 10:42 am

Sick and tired of this crap!  My stupid page is working less and less!!!!  Now it won’t let me update my stats.  GRRRRR!!!!!!!!!  My weight this AM is 190.5.  Meaning that for the month of March, I only lost one pound.  I would be more upset, but considering all the family issues and whatnot, I’m not really that upset.  And at least it went down!  LOL  I am hoping that April will be a better month, but I guess we will just have to wait and see.  I really do worry that not having this blog is making me slack off even if it doesn’t feel like I am…. Maybe I am just overly worried.  I don’t know.  Either way, I’m going to take the one pound loss and run with it.  Last month was only 2 so I hope for 2 if not 4 next month.  I have yet to have a 4lb. month that I can remember.  Maybe last year sometime…

Oh, and even though my scale is only moving slowly, something is going on because dresses that I loved before and fit so well, sit awkwardly on me now… I think the Pilates may be doing some good!  And yes, I did them the other day after I blogged.  Aren’t I good??? I hope to do them later today, but younger has been up a lot the last couple of nights and I am pooped!  Plus all the crazy cleaning I did yesterday in prep of family coming.  I don’t know what got into me… I guess nervous energy.  LOL  So I cleaned and cleaned!  But I felt happy about it… not stressed!  So, I enjoyed it.  LOL  And I did a few things I don’t normally do like dusted the ceiling for cobwebs and cleaned off my air vents.  All stuff we know we should do but we never do and put off.  I just felt like doing it yesterday so I did.  And for some reason, it makes the house feel so much cleaner and refreshed!  Now, if I could just get myself perked up to do some projects I’d be home free!  HA!  But so far, my project mojo has been re-routed to outdoor work.  I’m going to try to work on more but right now, I’m tired (not just physically, but mentally!) and I’m not getting far with it because I find I’m always doing something else.  But I really need to move it back to the front and get it done.  UGH.  So much to do, so little time!

What is funny is I am sitting here knowing there is so much to be done, but I want to take it easy today.  I worry about overdoing it… my body does NOT react well to being overdone.  Sounds like I’m cooking myself!  HA!  But really, I don’t know why but when I over do stuff, my body takes forever to recover.  I work better if I just try to work steady doing a little bit every day along with my regular stuff.  That’s just how I work.  I know some people can just power through things, get done, and be happy but I’m not like that.  I can power through and then when done it can take me a week to get back up and running.  And in the meantime, everything else falls to the wayside.  It’s annoying!  So, I’d rather just try to do a bit every day.  :)

OK, going to get off of here now.  I don’t even know why I’m posting here now.  I guess because I’m hopeful it will post and hope that next week this will be fixed.  I’ve emailed and so far, no response.  If it isn’t fixed by the end of this week, I’m moving on.  I’m going to go ahead and transfer my older blogs over to my USB just in case.  Take care everyone!  And yes, I will post my new blog link if/when I need to.  I’m just sorry that right now I can’t really follow anyone on here.  :/

 

It’s 3/30 and I’m still here… March 30, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 6:16 pm

Unskinny, I swear I’m not dead!  I’m not!  Although after several days of yardwork, I sorta felt like it!  LOL  I am just NOW starting to recover.  But at least the back is started, the front two flowerbeds are DONE, and the plans for the extension of bed 3 and a new bed 4 are done!  WOOT!  AND, we actually started prepping bed 3.  It was HEAVILY eaten up with weeds with all this rain.  But we worked hard and got a lot cleaned up.  I can’t wait to expand it — it’s going to be FAB!!!  Lots of hard work, but FAB! Anyways, with all of this yardwork, I didn’t work out.  I will tonight come Hell or high water!  I’ve had enough time to recoup, so it’s back to it.  I believe Tuesday was the last day we worked out there.  Maybe Weds… either way, took yesterday almost completely off and then just light housework today.  Although, my wrist and shoulders are still sorta achy.  Been good on food and taking in water.  About to start a second bottle!  :D  And going to TRY to remember to take my vitamins with dinner.

My last weight check (which was this AM) was 192.0.  I’d say that’s right.  And it’s kinda sucky since I didn’t really check on 3/25 and my end of month weigh-in is THIS Sunday.  So, I doubt I see a loss.  :(  I mean, I just don’t think I’m going to see a change between now and then.  But oh well… I can’t backtrack now!  I had REALLY hoped by last weigh-in to be under 190… I was so close!  I mean, I’m still pretty close, but 2lbs. feels like 2miles… in the pouring rain… with no shoes… UP HILL!  Yeah…. I’m a bit mad at myself but at the same time, I knew when I got going in this again that I was going to live life and go on so it would in no way be fast and furious… I knew it would be slow.  And I knew doing it this way that there would be times that I would go up and sit.  Mostly because even if I have a high day, I don’t cut way back to compensate the next day.  I DID try it, but it just made me frustrated, so it’s just not the way for me.  I just got to stick to what I’m doing and go on.

I sure hope everyone out there is doing good… I must confess now that I am not writing every day like before (or at least every other day), I’ve found that I am on the computer less and less which means I’ve not been keeping up with blogs like I should.  I feel awful.  I do!  But at this point, I’m not even sure how I would catch up… I just hope they get things worked out soon.  And then if I have a rainy day… oh buddy!  I’ll burn my eye sockets out trying to do so much reading!

Well, I’m going to jump off of here and talk myself into Pilates.  Take care!

 

3/22 March 22, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 12:02 pm

Quick blog this AM.  Still having sign-in issues and still not able to do much other than sneak on here, type out a quick blog, and sign off.  Which I guess in some ways is just as well, but is also very annoying as I can’t really get to the blogs I want to or be supportive which I need and I’m sure others like as well.  So, overall, I’m just feeling bummed and really thinking that maybe I will indeed switch everything over.  If I do, I will post my new blog here so that anyone who wants to follow me, can.  I will probably do what Pepa has done and post my blog link for a bit to help transition over.  I’m giving this a bit more time, and then if it isn’t fixed, I’m outtie.  I hate to, but what other choice do I have at this point?

Anyways, for two days, I weighed in at 190 flat and then today, 191.5.  But that was completely expected.  I actually expected higher!  You see, we did a crazy amount of yardwork yesterday and I was sweating like crazy and before I even went to bed, I was SORE.  So, I knew my weight was going to be up today… a lot!  I actually was quite surprised at only the 1.5 up.  Only 1 up from my last ‘official’ weigh-in.  So today before I go out, I’m drinking LOTS of water.  I’ve only had one cup of coffee but that is ok since my stomach seems unhappy.  Probably from being tired and slightly dehydrated.  I know I’m slightly dehydrated just because my urine this AM was very little and DARK yellow.  I drank water yesterday, but apparently that wasn’t enough!  So, my goal is about 3L today… 4 if I can stand it.  I think I had about 3 without even trying yesterday but I’m not sure.  UGH.  Just had to chew some Tums.  My stomach is really unhappy right now.  :(  Probably just too much acid.  I may eat lunch early to try to help with that.  Something easy and simple that will absorb it and then some salad or fruit to keep on plan with getting good and hydrated.  :)

Other than that, not much going on.  Trying to stick with plan and go on with life.  Hubby is doing ok, too.  Well, I better get off of here and try to get something done, sick stomach and all!  I just won’t push myself to do too much.  And I may go double up on my daily vitamin to give me a little ‘boost’.  I wouldn’t normally do that, but when I start to feel run down, I head straight for the good stuff like water, fruit/veggies, and vitamins!  Hopefully I perk up and get to enjoying the rest of the day and I can be productive.  Have a good one everyone!

 

Why? March 19, 2012

Filed under: 2012 — jewlz280 @ 10:59 am

I don’t know why they can’t get this site fixed.  Please, for the love of Pizza, SOMEONE WHO’S PAGE IS WORKING REPORT THAT MANY OF US ARE HAVING ISSUES!!!!!  I am going nuts.  And I somewhat feel lost.  AARGH.  I guess I need to start working on transferring my old blogs to my USB today or I may be locked out for good.  I hate this.

On another front, my weight was 191.0 this AM.  I wasn’t too surprised by that.  I didn’t drink as much water as I should yesterday and I know that I went over a bit on calories.  Nothing big… just a few here and there.  But I plan on doing better today.  I want to be at or under.  I really, REALLY hope to see the 180’s this week.  I didn’t even take my cheat day yesterday!  Mostly because hubbs had to work and then nothing really sounded good.  The beauty of doing what I’m doing is that nothing is off limits, so as a result, I don’t have crazy cravings anymore.  Well, except when I have my period!  HA!  And if I do crave something, I just find a way to fit it in my day!  So far, so good.

I did hear something sorta disturbing the other day… an old friend from high school emailed me out of the blue wanting to know about weight loss surgery.  Said someone told her I had done it.  Not that I am opposed to it or anything, but it got me to thinking that I haven’t really seen any of my friends in a LONG time.  Then I got to thinking, wait, what if someone is spreading that rumor!?!  Maybe I am over-thinking this, but it sorta bothered me.  I mean, I’m losing but it is slow, so I’m not sure how anyone could think I had weight loss surgery.  It would be faster, right?  I mean, I started 2012 out at 196.5 and my last official weight in was 190.5, so I’ve only lost 6lbs.  I’m making lifestyle changes and losing slowly.  Wouldn’t surgery be much faster?  And everyone I’ve known who I’ve seen in the last year would see me and probably think I look basically the same… so, I am confused and don’t know if I should address the rumor or just leave it be.  Probably leave it be… but still.  It’s bugging me.  HAS been bugging me since yesterday.

I worked out again yesterday!  SHOCK!  No one pass out or have a cow!  LOL  I am actually a bit achy!  I realize doing the Pilates probably won’t cause me to lose faster, but it would be nice if it just pulled everything in a bit tighter.  That can make a HUGE difference.  My husband says that just after a few times, my stomach is already looking better.  Probably because for Pilates, you use your core for EVERYTHING.  What I mostly hope to accomplish is to get my thighs smoother and tighter, and my waist smaller.  I had wanted to wait on using the Mederma until I had lost more weight, but now I am thinking I should go ahead and start using it now.  But I am afraid that I won’t get the best results that I could if I use it before I have lost enough weight to really give my skin the room to pull in.  My friend used the Target brand of the Mederma and she had a HUGE change.  I don’t know if I will have the same, but I’d love to make them smaller!  I didn’t have that many, but the ones I have are wide and long.  Sorta looks like Freddie Crougher slashed down my sides!  So, if I could just make those smaller, that would make an unbelievable difference.  But I am afraid if I start using it now before I’ve dropped more weight, the scars will heal a certain amount and then when I lose more, they won’t get any better.  Does that even make sense?  UGH.  Not sure if I should start or not….  Maybe I should use just one tube and see how it goes and go from there.  I could always get more later as I lose…

Not sure what else to write about right now.  Things with the hubbs are better and no news on the BIL this AM.  So, I really should go on and get started with my day.  I had hoped to do a playdate, but I guess that isn’t going to happen.  No one has responded.  :(  It’s our Spring Break, so I think that most of the people I hang with are out of town.  *sigh*  Oh well, onwards!!!

 

Still Having Issues. March 18, 2012

3FC — You are pissing me off.  I am seriously about to take all my crap to Tumblr!!!!  AGGRAFRETTIN’ POS!!!  UGH.  Seriously.  I’m annoyed here.  I don’t know WHAT is going on with this site, but it’s enough to drive a body mad.  I don’t WANT to spend hours on end moving all of my stuff from here to my pute, but I’m starting to think the only way I CAN keep blogging is to to that.  I have tentatively started blogging a bit over on Tumblr, but mostly complaining about here!  But I guess I’m going to have to move over if they can’t fix this issue.  And it isn’t just me — it’s LOTS of the blogs!

On a good note, my official weigh-in number for this AM was 190.5!  Which finally puts me at a loss.  :D  I’m super happy since for the last couple of weeks, it was holding out or going up.  Thanks Mother Nature!  LOL  I think this is the most water retention I’ve had from a period in a while.  But it’s fine now that I am back down.  Well, back down and then down a pound!  That means that I have lost…  UGH.  Only 5lbs. since the beginning of the year.  Sounds kinda sucky… but I know that I’m doing it slow and the right way.  I know each month I lose about 7 days with my period.  And I also know that I’ve had at least one whole week with massive constipation issues.  Thankfully with the blogging I’m able to follow all of this stuff or I would get frustrated and give up!

On another good note, I worked out TWICE last week!  I know, it wasn’t much but it was 2 days of Pilates and a bit of stretching.  And since the weather has been nice, I’ve gone to a playdate with the boys and started on Spring Cleaning!  Oldest’s room already looks much better.  It’s just about time to change Youngest’s.  He’s getting to be a big boy now and needs play room in his bedroom.  We are trying to figure out the best way to deal with that.  He’s not really ready for new furniture or anything, but we for sure need better storage for his things in there.  Thinking it’s time to clean out and re-organize his closet and all that jazz.  Anyways, I’ve been trying to keep busy, do the Pilates, and stay off the net.  Not being able to blog/comment like normal has been a part of that.  I can’t even get to the blogs I normally read so I’m not even sure if anyone is seeing this.

Unskinny, if you are seeing this, I am thinking of you and I wish I had some other way to get in touch with you.  :/

Well, I won’t keep going on and on.  I need to get back to work and try to get a few things done.  Oh, and eat lunch!  Plus, I need to work out once my SIL heads back out.  Busy busy.  But it’s a good busy.  I like it!  It’s not crazy, out of control, or a ton… it’s just right for now.  Steady and good.  Hopefully I don’t wear myself out and can keep at a good pace.  Hope you all are doing well out there!  And if anyone knows how to reach the Admins of 3FC (since I apparently can’t email them either!) please let them know that lots of the bloggers are having issues!!!!  Please and thank you!
