I know better than to get on the scale when I'm in the throws of PMS...yet I did it and now I'm feeling even worse than normal. It's ridiculous. I can look at the calendar and know it's coming...have all the symptoms and even as I climbed on the scale, I knew the number would be higher, but still it affected me negatively.

I've got a lot planned today...need to get off the computer and get busy.

    Just be sure to remember the best thing about PMS weight gain... in about a week, sometimes you'll suddenly lose about 1 1/2 pounds!

Back to the grind of every day life...

Sunday, August 26, 2007

Okay, birthday is over. (And might I say I'm a bit disappointed? I mean, I'm going to be honest here. I'm not going to tell this to my family and make them feel bad, but it's okay to say it here. I didn't get a birthday cake. In fact, I can't remember when the last time I did get one was. I guess that's what happens when the one designated to take care of that is the one having the birthday. I guess if I'd wanted one badly enough, I should have just gotten one myself. Oh well...no cake means no extra calories that I just don't need.)

My day was as nice as it could be, all things considered. (We had to attend a memorial service for a very young man who committed suicide.) My kids took me out for breakfast, which was nice. Some friends came over in the evening and we laughed a bit. It was a quiet, laid back way to usher in 40, I guess.

Today's plans: lots of laundry and cleaning house...back to the grind. Summer's almost over and I haven't managed to do nearly as many things as I'd hoped/planned to do this summer. I had wanted to paint the kitchen and laundry room. And possibly the family room. Hmmm...good fall projects?


I'm 40 years old today!

Saturday, August 25, 2007

Okay, so I'm 40...I'm not where I'd hoped I'd be by 40, but I'm sure a lot closer to it than I was two years ago. Two years ago I was 337 pounds and finding I needed to nap nearly every single day, after work. I walked to and from work but would bring a lunch to avoid walking home for lunch, even though I can see my house from my workplace.

I'm up a few pounds as of this morning, but I do understand that I'm on the verge of my period and I know it will go back down after my period.

My lifestyle has improved tremendously. Heck, I got a bicycle for my birthday and I rode it to the store! (Better for the environment and much better for me!) I haven't ridden a bike in years and years. But it's true what they say...you never forget. I was a bit wobbly at first, but it all came back to me. (I must admit, I am feeling it a bit today...sort of sucked to wake up 40 and sore!)

My goals for this next year are: Establish a regular, doable exercise program. Get below 200 pounds. Curb my eating to three times a day, making better choices when I eat. Keep my focus. (I tend to start strong and finish weak.)

I'm confident my 40's will be better than my 30's!

Happy Birthday to me!

Computer's still broken

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Okay...so my computer is still broken...I'm not exercising with any regularity...I'm sort of grazing with my eating, so I've not only NOT lost any weight, I'm up a couple of pounds! I haven't even been taking my supplements the past month. I'm in such a rut! I think part of it may be that my baby graduated from high school...a month ago, when everything went to shit. I'm in a bit of a depression over that, I think. I'm going to seriously try to pull myself out of my slump and get back on track.


broken computer. :(

Sunday, May 27, 2007

So no entries in a long time...my computer is broken. I do manage to get on my son's laptop long enough to check my email nearly every day, but not long enough to keep up with sparkpeople, which is a shame, really. But I hope to get it fixed soon and be able to get caught up on all I've missed.

No real weight changes. But I do feel like things fit differently. I'm sure things are rearranging, to say the least.

Have to run...must go pick up my son from work.
