had a great weekend! worked outside on saturday and then got to go to the outlet mall for some shopping.... almost back to my old self, hit 4 stores in 90 minutes and got 3 pr of shoes, 2 pr jeans, 1 dress, 7 sweaters.... :) a good and successful trip.
although i am nowhere near the size i want to be, i have lost enough that shopping is manageable again. now i have to decide what to wear today :)
sunday was another good day, got in a 3 mile walk w/ layna in the morning, watched the pack win while i put away laundry and then after another walk ended up at a volunteer event for our dog group.
after all that , i am still feeling well rested and ready to tackle the week ahead.

so I just completed week 3 of my new job. boy, do I have lots to learn... however, I just got the okay to "cut the cord" next week and take on some more tasks on my own... Yay me!!
This new area likes to eat lunch together... not sure how I feel about that. I am more of a "run errands over lunch" person, now I have to sit at a table and eat. But it's probably better than munching away at my desk.
The winds are finally quieter so we got in both our walks today.... puts us both in a much better mood when we can get outside like we're used to.
Have done really good on my water this week, have also worn a path between my new desk and the bathroom :) Still haven't started on the stairs vs elevator yet.... maybe next week.
oh.... almost forgot.... guess who is going shoe shopping tomorrow :)

So the hurricane winds are gone... now comes the windchills :( I have come to the conclusion that I don't like anything that contains the word "wind".
Had a brisk walk today. We were both bundled up.... but my ears still froze. Oh, did I mention that we had snow flurries yesterday!?!?!?!
Have to get a plan in place for winter. Usually I lose in the summer and maintain thru the winter. This time I need to loose in the winter! Gotta get more exercise throughout the day. I am hoping to get back on the treadmill.... but it's kind of annoying because Layna barks at me while I'm on it. Not that she wants to join me, she just doesn't like the noise. But have been thinking that she usuaully tucks herself into my bed around 8pm or so.... maybe that's the time to put up the gate and go to the treadmill. Will try it a few times and see how it works.

So, Pitty Palooza is over and done with, it was a great day! Very happy with how it all turned out. But it was a very long day.... so bummed that I didn't wear my pedometer to the event. I was there from 8 am til 6 pm. The room was 330 feet long and I can't imagine how many times I was up and down it... and all around :) The area for potty breaks was 4 flight down and thru a bunch of back hallways... made that trip more times that I want to remember as well. But, still it was a great day! and I met a ton of amazing people and dogs :)
Slept for over 12 hrs that night... wow! even more amazed that Layna did too :)
Looking forward to next year, but now have even more incentive to get this weight off. There were so many cool things going on that I would have loved to have taken pictures with to remember the day, but I didn't want to remember my size, so I stayed out of the frames all day. So tired of living in the background.....
