Ok, so for about a month and a half i've been having issues with my nose and as a side effect, my sense of taste. Nothing has tasted quite the way it should. Silver-Lining-Girl says "this has significantly aided me in my weight loss journey."
Yesterday i finally saw the ENT who seemed very confident in his diagnosis of my snout ("concha bullosa, if you're interested) and i think, ultimately, in his ability to cure my condition. Silver-Lining-Girl says "great, I'll be able to enjoy food again!" Weight-Loss-Gril just shudders and cowers in a corner...

It looks like the cold weather has broken (at least for a while) and spring is on! Today we're looking at temps in the 60's and even if it's raining, I love it! This change in the weather is a real boost for my mood, and I can't wait to get out into the yard and get working.
We have a LOT of stuff to do this year, moving a bunch of dirt is top on the list and I can't wait to get my arms going again (right now my biggest upper body exercise is picking up my daughter for hugs and whatnot).
In other news, i'm trying to decide if I should count April Fool's Day as a holiday on my tracking or if i should just wait a week for Easter (which is my inclination). If only ALL of the decisions I had to make were this trivial! te he.
Have a better one y'all!

The other day I awakened to the craziest music ever... it was Kenny Rogers singning "the Coward of the County". Weird because my husband and I usually listen to NPR - - especially on our alarm clock radios.
The weirdest part (to me) is that I actually knew the words and found the voice inside my head singing along...
ALL DAY LONG.
the best part though was sharing the story, at the end of the day, with my husband who went to sleep with it reverberating through his own skull.
Food wise I'm doing ok. I made it through the St. Pat's weekend without going out of my ranges, which was a lot of work and daily diet juggling, but ultimately very rewarding.
I think I might be losing the weight in my face (which my husband says he can see) and my feet, and (shudder) my chest. My waist, neck, and hips are ALL measuring what they have all along... almost 15 pounds ago. Ah well, if the weight is coming off I can worry about where later.

I really despise the spring switch to daylight saving time.
Every year, just as I start getting used to FINALLY waking up and facing some sunshine, they dick me over and it's back to FORCING myself awake in the dark.
This year, even worse, of course, because of the early changeover.
Pleh - that's what I say.
Weight-wise, I'm doing pretty well, lost several pounds and now I'm down to 220. Only 70 more to go! Ha ha ha.
I'm not seeing anything coming off of my inches, but then again, I'm not measuring everywhere, and even though it SAYS my waist and hips are the same, I feel my jeans fitting better every day!

So yeah - this weekend - Thursday Night / Friday morning, to be exact - the basement flooded. 6 inches of ice water, and 6 hours of trying to rescue ANYTHING from the boxes on the bottom. The rest of the weekend spent digging through, cleaning up, reboxing, and moving everything. Countless garbage bags. Chocolate chip cookies, cornbread, and too much other comfort food later - - and i haven't lost an ounce this past week.
I know i was doing well, too... until disaster struck.
I even resorted to A&W cheese curds... a WHOLE box of them.
I need more self control.
I need more willpower.
I need more strength.
I need help...
I didn't have any spark this weekend because of all the crap we had to do with the basement. I missed it...
