And Yet Again

July 30th, 2012

I’m stuck and I just don’t know what to do about it.  I just can’t seem to get away from 230, I’ve been here for close to 5 years now, I’ll go up almost to 240 then I’ll feel bad and turn over a new leaf and go down, I’ll get down to the mid 220s and then I’ll start creeping back up until I’m back to 230….I don’t want to quit WW I know it works and I can loose weight if I stick to and follow plan, I just can’t seem to make myself do that.  So yet once again I’m starting over, I really, really, really want to break thru this place I’m stuck at.

Anyway so other than that a quick update on things that have happened the last couple of weeks since I last posted.

We went camping with my family, I wasn’t expecting much, things can get fairly dramatic with my family, but it went really well, there was minimal drama, and much relaxing.  Here’s a photo of me laying in the hammock knitting what you can’t see is that one end of the hammock is tied to my car which is always happy to fill in for a tree:

I’ve been working on a bunch of knitting, but most of it has been put on hold while I work on my Ravellenic Games projects.  One of those RG projects is kilt-hose for DH’s b-day, I’m sure these will be fine once I get past the “heavily cabled fold over cuff” but right now they are kicking my butt.  The other RG project is a set of felted coasters for our niece’s housewarming party in a couple of weeks, I’ve got one done, I’m trying to decide if I should felt it to check size before knitting the others or knit them all and hope for the best.  On Saturday (after WW and Water Exercise) my girlfriend and I went out to the local winery for their Wine and Wool Fest, I spent too much, but had a good time.

On a side note I may have figured out why my allergies have been acting up this summer.  Before we went camping I noticed water on the floor under the furnace, I figured it was something minor and we’d deal with it when we got home.  Well turns out the drain in the A/C’s condenser was plugged so the water wasn’t going to the drain but rather pumping out on the floor.  I forgot about it when we got home and last Friday (a week after first noticing the problem) I noticed it again, in the meantime the water had traveled under the wall to the finished part of the basement and soaked the carpet.  We now have fans and the de-humidifier running trying to dry out the basement, when it’s dry I’ll rent a steam cleaner and do the carpet down there, to hopefully get rid of all the mildew and probably mold in the carpet.  I’m just hoping we can salvage this and won’t need to tear out the carpet.

This post is getting kind of long but I still want to post my goals for the week:

Life:  The same as the last couple of times I posted – clean off my dresser and sort my clothes, wash my face every night. Add to that clean up the basement.

Yarn: Plug away on those kilt-hose.  Stay away from online stores I don’t need any more yarn….

Food: Stick to plan, drink more water and less Diet Coke, drink less wine…I think that’s enough.

Exercise: Move daily…..simple and sweet.

Well time to get moving I need to pay the bills and run some errands, and man I feel like a nap, but can’t right now.

Have a good one,
