After the party...

So the holiday is over. Now, a full week of work...torture!
The good news is that at WW last week, I lost 3.4 pounds for a total of 10.8. Very happy :)
Now the stress of shopping for Christmas begins.

Happy Thanksgiving

I have this afternoon and tomorrow off to prepare for Thanksgiving Day. Of course, I have a pinched nerve in my back and shoulder and keep aggravating it due to the house work and organizing before Turkey day.

So it will be a small crowd, just immediate family and boyfriends this year. Kind of nice though. I thought it would give us time to play cards or watch a movie and take a walk. I do have company coming over at 6pm after their day of activities. A couple from the past. Time for renewing friendships. I'm looking forward to it.

And I want to be aware of what I munch on because I am determined to lose weight the week of Thanksgiving.

A happy, happy to all. May everyone be safe and blessed during this holiday season.

It's all good

I lost 1.4 pounds this week for a total of 7.4 in 4 weeks. Hope Thanksgiving doesn't undermine me.

Feel like a prisoner at work. We have one d!ckhead who complains if we socialize and now we can't chat with one another. If we're not loud and our work is getting done, what does it matter?

Hump Day

Wednesday - Hump Day and also the eve of the weigh-in. I think I lost 2 pounds this week but I'll see tonight for sure after the meeting.

My honey comes home from Chicago today. He did everything fun I've ever wanted to do in Chicago. Maybe he'll take me one day. They went to 2nd City Comedy Club and hit the Jazz and Blues bars.

Finances are wreaking havoc on my nerves. Worried about Christmas shopping. Between fuel oil for heating and the absurd cell phone bill I just paid, I hope I have enough to pay the rest of my bills this month.

So weigh-in was last night ~ I only lost 1/2 lb., however, I've lost a total of 6 lbs. in 3 weeks. I'm not feeling defeated, a 1/2 lb. is a 1/2 lb. ~ I'll take it!

So $1100 car seems to be running fine now. The latest problem was that the serpentine belt flung off. Seems the tensioner needed to be replaced. Of course, the price of that includes towing and labor - ouch! And that's after flushing the transmission, new water pump, new serpentine belt, etc., etc., etc. I think we're good to go now.

I'm starting to think Turkey now so I'll start making lists and preparing in advance as much as I can.

My beloved is headed for Chicago this weekend until next Wednesday for a conference. What to do without my main squeeze for 5 days???

Just when things start going well...

Went to WW last night to get weighed in. I lost 3 lbs. Yeah!

This morning I'm driving to work and my car starts to fail. First the power steering, then I notice the battery light goes on, then I see the temperature light goes on, glance at the temp gauge and it's rising quite high.

Manage to pull off the highway into a grocery store parking lot, but with great difficulty, as I have no steering now. Flipping off on-coming traffic who has become inpatient with me because they're trying to run a stop sign to hurry into work as I give it all my strength trying to navigate a left turn. That was stressful.

Did I mention that I just spent appx. $700 in repairs last month on my car. I hope it's not serious.

What classic movie are you?

I feel skinny....

...oh so skinny

I can feel the weight falling off of me. Before work this morning, I looked into the mirror and had an outfit on that I probably wore more than a week ago. All of a sudden I can see a waist, my pants feel baggy, and my breasts look smaller.

I can't wait for weigh-in tomorrow night. Life is good. And it's beautiful outside today.
