Back on track after a really rough couple of weeks. Spent some time up north with my sister, brother in law and assorted other family members and fell off the wagon, tripped getting back up again and rolled into the ditch, where I became soaked with water. I was pleasantly surprised when I got on the scale this morning and had lost about a pound in spite of my transgressions at the dinner table and away from the treadmill and weights. It's not really my sister's fault, I just like to bash her a bit.
I'm finding that I'm sticking to my regimen much better this time. I think it's because I've been telling myself that I'm not going to just lose 10 pounds and then go back to the way I've always eaten. I have done that so often in the past. Now, I'm seriously cutting back on what I eat and faithfully putting my food into my tracker and making myself get on that treadmill (thank you from the bottom of my heart JK!!) and it's making all the difference for me.

Our furry little forecaster has announced that it is autumn and that winter is not far behind. She does this in a very strange way.
Three years ago this past spring, a little grey bunny hopped across our lawn. My Sweet Baboo, bless his little heart, chased the little bunny all over the yard until he caught her/him. We're still not sure what flavor she is.
Anyway, we figured that since it was something like May when she hopped to our house, that the little bunny was an Easter present for some kid and when she/he wasn't so cute anymore, they just dropped it off and forgot about it. That seriously ticked me off.
She's been a great bunny, and has been named Hoppy by our oldest GrandDolly. She lives in our greenhouse, which was once a pool pump house. The greenhouse is inside our fenced-in in ground pool. She's safe from danger in there and has more than one way in and out of the greenhouse. She loves to race around the pool with our cats.
I really do have a point in all this. Hang tight.
The first autumn that we had her, (we usually refer to Hoppy as a her) she dug a tunnel underneath the greenhouse. Then filled it in. Then dug one under the fence, where she got out a couple of times. Then filled it in. This went on for most of the fall.
The second autumn that we had her, she started burrowing again, digging little warrens here and there, dragging in hay and leaves, and then filling them in. Again most of the fall.
This is our third autumn with her. Once again, she is burrowing and nesting. We're used to her antics by now. She spends her days covered in dirt and eating like a little horse. Not being an expert on bunnies, I'm guessing that she is instinctively doing this to have a safe and warm place to escape the bad weather that she instinctively knows will be here soon.
We're just glad that we can give her a safe and warm place to live, even while she's excavating her little heart out!!

I think that by not taking advantage of the support and camaraderie that is available on the Team Forums, I essentially shot myself in the foot!! Thanks for the warm welcome you guys, it feels good to know that there are others like me that are fighting the good fight against Evil Creeping Poundage!!
