Well, I slid into maintenance mode apparently. I go up, I go down. I sorta track what I eat, but I'm not making an effort to lose anymore.
I don't understand how I fell into complacency so easily. I noticed my motivation disappearing months ago and tried again and again to get it back to no avail. I'm disappointed with myself for not hitting my goal.
Here's a picture of me brainfarting.
I'm still working out 3 days a week though, and with that I do know I'm getting stronger. I can now curl 50 lbs (I started at 10) and squat 250 (started at 190) which I really enjoy. Lifting weights is fun for me. I also still run as my cardio those 3 days. I don't do the same thing, like day 1 I might run 1 mile, day 2 I might walk fast on a high incline, and day 3 I might run and walk at an incline.
Sunday I managed to run 1.5 miles straight through. I've never done that. Ever. Not in my 29 years, even in track in middle school (when my event was the 1.5 mile) have I ever run 1.5 miles straight without walking in the middle.
I'm quite proud of that. However, was I able to do it because I'm getting healthier, or because I didn't eat breakfast and had a single cup of coffee an hour before gym time? Guess I'll find out today as it's gym day and I want to try to do that again.
Um, the baby is crawling now. He likes to get over to something and pull himself up standing and bounce up and down while screaming. it's great fun, he acts.
Here's a pic of him sleeping:
Summer is here (I live in Texas, it starts early) and I have to buy a bathing suit this week. We have a swimming party Saturday, and my old suit is quite baggy. It's sad. I'm looking forward to suit shopping, but am dreading it at the same time. While I have a bikini-able body, the lighting in the rooms makes every slight bulge accented. Oh well.
So there's my update. What can I do about complacency?
Thanks for reading!

Dr Pepper Ten, 8 medium strawberries, eggo low fat nutrigrain waffles, 2 bananas, laughing cow cheese, grapes, ham sandwich (pepperidge farm whole grain white sandwich thin, land o lakes honey ham 6 slices, mustard), RF oreos, and 2 apple cinnamon rice cakes. Total around 950 calories
And I'm going to be really hungry by 2 pm. Le sigh
I've been eating crappy dinners and over my calorie range for what seems like months now, but i'm always hungry and i'm a bored eater. What can I do?

This woman is my hero. I truly love her writing. It's funny, it's full of attitude and good fuzzy feelings. I've read all her articles.
I posted a blog about her fat acceptance articles before, but the one today really made me lol.
And she's totally right. You shouldn't give a damn about how you look. Be happy, and if wearing certain things makes you happy, wear them more.
Personally, I'd never wear the galaxy dress, but that cartoon dress I could completely rock. Maybe with my zombie stompers?
I seriously own that pair of shoes, and when I'm in them, I'm 6'5. Bam!

So Easter was great! Had a wonderful time, met with family, ate, played with the Baby.
Unfortunately, starting Friday night my husband didn't feel so hot. He ran a 102 degree fever most of Saturday, and had gotten it down to 98 Sunday morning (so he went with us to Easter celebration) but was still feeling funky up to Monday evening and even today.
On our way from one family's house to another, I said my hands felt funny. Like, almost asleep. Pins and needles feelings. Then on the way home, my feet felt that way. Not the entire foot, just the bottoms and palms of my hands. All tingly, ouchie. I noticed when we got home I had red dots in between my fingers, and on the bottoms of my feet.
Well crap. 2 years ago coming home on Easter from THE SAME FAMILY MEMBERS HOUSE, I got a terrible rash that required steroid pills to stop. So I took 2 benedryl and went to bed.
Monday it was worse. More dots, still stinging pins and needles feet and hands.
My nose has been running something awful since I'm still fighting this stupid sinus infection, and yesterday I noticed it was getting flaky at the top of my nostrils. (when it usually gets chapped from too much blowing it's the bottoms) My ear lobes also have flaky bits near the canal, which is very unusual and I know I didn't scrape myself.
After much googling and reading, I think I've narrowed it down to Hand Foot and Mouth disease. Baby is in daycare, so it's entirely possible he had it and we didn't realize it. He had a funny rash on his cheeks, hands, and legs last week but no mouth sores and no high fever, just a bit warm. But, getting 4 teeth in a week would do that to you, right? lol So Now I'm thinking he had it, and we got it from him one of the many times we've wiped his nose, or his eyes, or he sneezed in our faces (for some reason as soon as you pick him up sometimes he sneezes right at you then laughs)
So yeah. Awesome.
