No particular reason, just thought it was time... *sigh*
My streak of bad luck is continuing. Last night, when I parked my car, I somehow managed to break the control arm for the windshield wipers. I don't know what's worse, the fact that the arm was dangling by a few wires or that the bloody wipers are stuck "ON" all the time... driving home with NO rain, and the wipers going full force. ARGH.
My motorcycle died yesterday too. *Sigh* It was turning over, but it wasn't starting. I kept trying to start it, and as a result, I killed the battery... but before it conked out from lack of juice, I got a HUGE gunshot-like backfire... and then the battery died. I just shook my head, went back into the house, took off all my bike gear, and took the car to the park and ride... half way there, I realized that I left my wallet, cash, etc in the bike jacket pocket.... BLEH.
I'm waiting to see what's next. Whatever it is, I think I'm done with it all now... ENOUGH ALREADY.
Have a fantastic day everyone!

This week's number: 249.2 ... that's a 0.2 lb loss (yes, I'm counting it!)
I broke my scale. ARGH. I stepped on it to weigh myself, and after the number appeared, I realized that I hadn't selected my profile to save the weigh-in, so I got off the scale, selected my profile, and when I stepped on the scale I heard a loud "CRACK" and then got an error message. (Fill in explicit swear word here.)
So now I have to go buy a new scale -- again. **SIGH**
Something's going on with my 'universe'. All of a sudden things seem to be breaking down around me. As I was standing up after inspecting the scale, I knocked a picture off the bathroom wall -- I caught it on time before it hit the floor, so no damage there, but man. My whole week has been a series of blunders and breakdowns. It's insane.
The really sad thing is that somehow, in my brain, I have convinced myself that all of this seemingly bad luck is rubbing off on me from a friend. This friend has has been having a rough time of things, and I have been doing my best to keep spirits up and have been providing support and help whenever needed (without being overbearing). Now, all of a sudden, things are getting crappy for me.
I know that it's irrational for me to think that the little dark cloud over this friend's life is beginning to cast a shadow on me. Still, I can't help thinking that this is what is happening, and to be honest, I don't like it at all. LOL.
Ok, enough mumbo jumbo from me.
No official weigh in photo this week, since I didn't get to register the weigh in. I'm off to buy a new scale... hopefully my good luck will be back from its little vacation soon.
Have a fantastic day!

I tried some "no trans-fat, no sugar added" cookies yesterday.
I have come to the conclusion that whatever ingredients they use for these types of foods have a serious side-affect for me. It seems that every time I have tried these types of products, I suffer the next day... and so does everyone else around me!
I become bloated and gassy. BAD gassy. Not only is it booming, make the walls rumble gassy, but it's burn your eyes and make you gasp for air gassy. The fact that this gas expells itself at such a high volume, and goes on for what seems like an impossible length of time, plus the toxic fumes that are partnered with it, makes me afraid to leave the house today -- for fear of inflicting innocent bystanders to this kind of torture.
I'm not going to try any more "diet" products. I've been through this enough times now to determine that they are just not for me. In the meantime, I'm going to have to find some Gas-X to make it through the day.

I only need to lose 14.4 pounds to reach my goal. WOW! It's so close!!
I have been feeling dreary and down these last two weeks because of the weather-- it's been wet, dark and icky and I need my sunshine. It's been quite the task to stay on track, when this weather makes me feel like packing in the food to comfort myself.
Just now, though, I realized that to sabatoge myself now would be silly -- with my goal easily within reach, I have a new found reason to keep working at this. If I keep going, even with just a one pound loss every week, I will be at my goal by the first week of July! WOOHOO!!!

Not only was I lazy, but I craved salt again all day... so I ate chips. BLEH. Now my stomach is complaining to me about it, and I have heartburn. That'll teach me not to do that again.
I did get out of the house, making a trip to the Home Depot to pick up some trim to put around my window. It was nice out, the sun was shining, but it was chilly and damp. I got home with every intention to do some work in the living room again (I have to give it a second coat of paint, there are patches that need touching up), but I just couldn't be bothered... so I lay on the couch and watched movies the rest of the day... oh.. and ate chips. LOL.
I sorted through one of the boxes I packed from my old job, to dig out some nic nacs to bring to work for my desk. I also did laundry. What an exciting day... NOT!
The plan tomorrow is to come home from work and to get that second coat of paint up on at least ONE wall -- the window wall -- so I can put the trim up around the window and then put the drapes up, so people can't see into my house. I'll have about 2 hours of good daylight to get this done, which should be just about the right amount of time to actually paint the whole living room. Fun, fun, FUN. ARGH! Once the drapes are up, I'll be able to take a new photo of myself (don't want the neighbours to see me taking pictures of myself! LOL!!)
Bracing myself for a semi-busy week at work....
Life is good!
