On the Up-swing (mood, not weight…because then it would be a downward spiral…but not in pounds… wait, what? Nevermind. I see a puppy!) May 3, 2012
After a really awful few days (emotionally and food-wise… ALWAY TIED. ALWAYS), things are getting back on track. I can’t say they ARE, because I’m still not back to my regular workout routine. And you know why?
Because I have no almond milk.
No joke. When I have almond milk, I can make my shake in the morning. Making my shake reminds me to take my iron. When I take my iron, I have more energy (IRON HELPS US PLAY!). When I have more energy, I’m all about working out and cleaning ALL THE THINGS.
Solution? Maybe I oughtta buy some gat’danged almond milk. Consarnit.
But work is better, and it looks like maybe (just maybe) we’ll have a new (used, but still) car tomorrow!! I’m waiting to get really giddy until I sign (my life away) on the dotted line.
We’re also in the midst of planning 2 trips. I mean, *I* am. Because really, who else is going to obsessively plan if I won’t?
Trip 1: Small weekend camping jaunt to Riding Mountain National Park with my onliest honey for our anniversary on July long weekend. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Trip 2: This is a scaled-back version of our GRAND SUMMER PLAN to go to California (too much $, sadly). Still awesome: take the kids to Yellowstone for 2 weeks of camping, hiking, swimming, and general awesomeness in August.
I’d like to be down to 220 by July, and maybe even under 200 for mid-August (though that’s pushing it, I know).
The weight is still coming off fairly steadily, though I’ve ceased to feel as svelte. 246.8 this morning, for an overall weightloss from the beginning of March of 52lbs, and about 76lbs from my highest weight. I should just get my butt in gear. Onederland is feeling-not-so-much-like-a-bull-elephant-when-I-wear-a-bathing-suit territory for me.
