My husband gets back from LA today. He has an appointment tomorrow morning at the dentist. He will be going back immediately after, new job and all. I am really looking forward to seeing him even if it is just a few hours. I talk to him on the phone but I have missed him this week. I am very comfortable being alone but it is nice to have him around in person. Everything is going well with his new job. Now I just need to find one. That will be a priority this week. My last day is a week from Wednesday so I would be available for interviews. If I can get that taken care of we could buy something in LA and not have to do an apartment first. That would be really nice because we wouldn't have to move a second time. Well I am going to get off here and get ready for my hubby to arrive.
My party was a lot of fun. It is the tradition of my friends at work to write a poem for someone leaving. My friend Erika is quiet the poet when she does them. It was dead on and really appreciated. I will always remember and treasure it. I went way, way, way over on all my calories, fats, carbs, just about everything but protein. It was the only thing that was in correct range. I know I would though. I got up this morning and did my exercises. I am moving a little slow so I only did 40 minutes on the Life Cycle. I have some errands to run and I may go for a walk or ride some more later to make up the difference. All in all it was a great night and I enjoyed everyone who came. I may not miss ABQ all that much once I am gone but I have some amazing friends here and I will miss them. At least with email, Facebook, and all the other tech ways to keep up with people I will be able to keep my firends here more easily than ever before. I am going to really behave this week to make up for last night. I am back on track just like I planned.
Hello Friday. I thought you would never get here. Tonight is my going away party and I am going to be off the wagon so to speak. I am going to try to make some smart choices but my favorite bread pudding is coming so I know it will be over on fat, carbs and calories. Knowing that going in makes it an educated recoverable choice. That is the main difference between the old me and the now me. It isn't the end of anything just a fun event in my life that I will enjoy and carry on from. It is a pretty liberating thought actually!!
Well I slept a little better last night but it is still a ways from being back to normal. Hopefully by the weekend I will be back in the sleep of things. It is a comfy mattress just really different from what I am used to. They said at the store it usually takes about three weeks to fully adjust sometimes longer. I am still doing well with my exercise. I am allowing little treats here and there though (not too much) just to try to figure out the maintaining part. So far so good. My going away party is Friday night so I am trying to be a little strict now so I can have some party things without wrecking my momentum. This is the part that I am trying to learn so I can be a normal thin person eater at some point. We shall see. As always I am very much a work in progress!!
Okay...this mattress is really different from a regular mattress. It looks great and once I got the linens on it and the bed made looks even better. I didn't sleep all that well. I'm not sure if it is just an adjustment period or if I am just not sleeping all that well right now. I didn't sleep well night before last and that was on the old mattress. Who knows. I am sure it will be better for me that the old one with the hills and valleys. I can't wait until the weekend to try on a sleep late day. I will have had 4 nights on it and hopefully I will be able to sleep late on Saturday and/or Sunday. I should be tired enough by then to get a good night in. I am curious to see what my hubby thinks when he gets back on Saturday or Sunday.
