The Weather Today Is Enchanting.....

.... and I am sure it has something to do with being down 2.6 lbs this week.  :)  I am really happy with that, especially with all the stressful situations I have encountered the last couple of weeks but I am as settled in to my new place as I can be.  The situation is not ideal but I think it will work for now.  At least until I get my own place. 

So, I never purchased new workout clothes for my 25lbs lost.  Instead I purchased new everyday clothes for my trip to Denver.  It was so lovely walking up to that counter with clothes that were several sizes smaller.  I will be revisiting my rewards system and moving a few things around because there are some rewards I want sooner than others (read: brat).  But I feel I deserve to exercise the right to change my mind.  As we know that is a woman's prerogative...wink wink.

I have been extremely rude and not asked how you all have been doing.  So.... How ya doin?

I actually lost the 1.2lbs I gained the previous week.  So still holding strong at 25 lbs down.  Now, to push on from here......

Radio Silence

Hello Friends!  I don't even know where to begin. The past three weeks have been insane.  Here is a bullet point synopsis of what has been going on:
  • Wedding on 10/15/10
  • Left for Colorado on 10/18/10 (my trip will get it's own post)
  • Finally made it back home from Colorado at 3:30am on 10/26/10, then went to work later that day
  • Halloween festivities (and those darn sneak cocktails!) resulting in a 1.2lb gain at my next weigh in.  :(
  • Monday 11/1/10 my roommate tells me he is moving his girlfriend and her kids in on Friday 11/05/10 (when I asked him to give me this week and next week to move my things out grrrrrrrr....)
  • Worked all week, packed all week, got a storage unit and u-haul
  • Saturday morning/early afternoon went wedding dress and maid of honor dress shopping with one of my besties.
  • Saturday afternoon/evening moved from one house to the other
  • Sunday finished unloading the u-haul, took things to storage and then unpacked my whole life.
  • Monday I cleaned, worked and (praise!) got a massage
  • Working everyday this week including Sunday.
Needless to say I am pretty pooped and very emotional.  I have been feeling so many different things and all at the same time.  Arrrgggghhhh!  I have my weigh in tonight and am pretty sure I gained.  There was some emotional eating involved this weekend. 

On the plus side I have gone to the grocery store and stocked up on low point healthy foods.  I may even be able to squeeze in a couple of walks so I can lose the weight I have put on the past couple of weeks.  I have some thinking to do and new routines to get used to but I know I will make it through and be an even better person for it.
