My dear, sweet, kind, loving, amazing readers. (And I am not at ALL saying that because I haven’t posted in forever and I’m a terrible person and possibly the worst weight loss blogger ever.)

Weight gain that week: 1.0 pounds
October 27, 2012
Weight loss that week: 2.2 pounds!!
TOTAL weight loss: 39.0 pounds
I didn’t weigh-in. Yep. Terrible person.
Saturday was a long day, and that’s why I didn’t weigh-in. I judged region band all day long, thought I might be able to weigh-in afterwards, but couldn’t because I WAS THERE FOREVER. But let’s be TOTALLY honest here. I could have figured that out before and weighed-in earlier in the week. I chose to be lazy. I chose to wait until the last minute and only really have one possible weighing-in option and I blew it. And this week, I was determined to get this posted by the next time I weighed in – so naturally I waited until the last possible day.
Part of that is because I am sick. So sick that I’ve been home from school since Wednesday, and I haven’t been inspired to do anything except sit and sleep and watch TV. It’s SO annoying. But at least I haven’t been that hungry! It’s the little things, right?? Ugh. Whatever. I caught up on my soaps. (And by “soaps” I mean “fairy-tale related shows”. You know, Once Upon a Time and Grimm. Soaps is just more fun to say.)
These last few weeks have been hard, and not really for any good reason. Yes, we moved, and yes, I’m sick, and yes, teaching is hard – but there’s always going to be something, isn’t there? Some of you are probably wondering why in the world I’m complaining, being that I was down 2.2 pounds two weeks ago, but I’m just being honest. I know that I have not been making the best decisions. And I will tell you that. Even though I could lie and you’d never know (never know, never know, never know **fading out**…..you know, like an echo? Ugh, internet is hard.)
And I certainly haven’t been exercising. I have figured out, however, that if I come home and sit on the couch, I don’t intend to move again unless it involves food or sleeping. Unless there is a meal or a bed coming my way, I’m probably not going to vacate our amazing and wonderful couch. Solution? Work out before I get home. Hooray! Of course, the first time I tried that, I got sick. Literally. The FIRST day I packed a bag of work-out clothes to take to work, I started feeling yucky and now I’ve been out for 3 days straight. I do believe that means I’m allergic to working out. (That’s the only logical explanation, here.)
Since I’m not so motivational with the whole weight losing thing, let’s talk about other things. We moved! WRG and I are now in a 2 bed 2 bath in a beautiful neighborhood in an apartment that we love – but MOST IMPORTANTLY I DON’T HAVE TO DRIVE ALL DAY TO GET TO WORK. (I’M NOT EXAGGERATING THAT WAS MY LIFE. BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT IF I’M TALKING IN ALL CAPS I AM MOST LIKELY BLOWING THINGS OUT OF PROPORTION.) We’ve spent the last few weeks spending way too much money and trying to make it feel like home. Our epic bookcases are up – and the chalkboard has a new place in the dining room (with Bach and Beethoven prominently displayed):
I stuck placemats to the wall. I love them.
(I promise our walls aren’t as green as our lighting/my iPhone makes them look. But they are just a little greener than one might like…we’re working with it.)
And our porch is so pretty (AND WALTER IS OFFICIALLY A MAC CONVERT!!!!).
We love it here. And I don’t feel nearly as stressed when I get home, because I haven’t driven for ELEVENTY HOURS.
That’s the update. I absolutely WILL weigh-in tomorrow, and then I will tell you all about it. I really hope this sickness leaves soon, because I was just getting motivated to get back on track with exercising. Here’s to a healthy weekend!
