I am exhausted. Just hit my calorie quota for the day. Off to bed....

Well, no surprise here. After eating large portions of high fat, high sodium food all weekend, the scale was up a few pounds. I did exercise every day, so I think a lot of it is just water weight. We were in the altitude and I tend to retain fluid when I am in high country...I will weigh in on Weds to see where I really am, since I weighed in fully clothed, and after a big breakfast...
Had a wonderful visit with the kids. Some expected conflicts, but they seem to have all resolved, and we are really looking forward to seeing them again in just a few weeks. DIL is celebrating her 40th birthday (most of the guys in our family have married "older women") in CA so we will have at least a brief visit while they are here. And then again, on Christmas.
It was wonderful to see the little ones spend so much time with their grandpa. He was so thrilled with all the attention they gave him. And to think he almost chose not to go with me...
My wound is completely closed. I have decided I am sick of walking and my entire body is screaming for full attention. So...next Sunday afternoon, I will resume my yoga for the first time since I dislocated my kneecap last December. I can hardly wait...The doc said take it slowly, and I will, but it will feel Soooooooo good! Even if everything is modified some. I noticed the other night, after losing 75 pounds, and having my huge hernia repaired, my balance is so much better, and I feel so centered again....

We're still in Oregon. Trip initially had its up and downs, but the two grandkids have softened the heart of my hubby, and us staying in a motel has helped alleviate the stress for my DIL...
We had a fabulous meal on Thanksgiving, but ate too much, and also have the past couple of days. Have taken nice hikes each day, but suspect have not burned off as many calories as I need to.
Physically strong. Hubby back to normal, and so much to be thankful for...

It has been a rough day for me...last night, hubby announced he wasn't going to Bend with me for Thanksgiving. He has such a difficult time during the holidays. I try to be empathetic, but it is really hard. Over the years,I have learned he settles down in a day or so...it isn't easy, but I try to stay calm and centered til the storm blows over...Tonight, he said he'll go after all....But I was so hurt by his behavior last night it doesn't mean much right now. Ah, men....sometimes I wonder if the effort of maintaining a relationship is worth it...
The good news? I didn't react by eating. I reacted by taking a long walk along the river....
In the meantime, my surgical wound is closed. I'm still uncomfortable and have a HORRIBLE scar to serve as a life long reminder. ..but most of all, I am fatigued. I know my body is not healed completely yet, and despite all my efforts, I am not quite back to normal (though I often pretend I am...) Had a rough time at work today...kept yawning, and just wished I could take a nap.
I will be glad to be on the train tomorrow night. I can sleep as much as I want, and not feel guilty. And then, it will be good to get little girl hugs from the precious grandkids! I am hoping hubby's heart will soften by the time we get there....

Hubby is locked into a book. I have been getting packed, and trying to organize the house. Also did some work related stuff that I put off on Friday...House is still cluttered, but I am making progress...
I think I lost a couple more pounds. But I don't ever count it til I maintain it for a few days at least. I know how I fluctuate, so I want to make sure before I change my ticker.
I rarely eat steak, but I had one in the freezer and hubby and I ate it two nights in a row, with Delicata squash, and a huge salad...kept meat portion small so it was a great meal...TWICE! Going to some friends for dinner tonight...I had to laugh when I heard what we are having...Steak, delicata squash and a salad! I didn't have the heart to mention it was the same meal we've had twice already this week! Hubby and I are chuckling about it. Good thing we like it!
