Food and exercise: Today, I knew I was going to be real busy, so I got up first thing and did 10 minutes on the TM just to get some exercise in. My food has been sort of on the light side because I've been preoccupied with getting things done in advance of my drive down to Tennessee tomorrow for my son's wedding. Tracking has made me more aware of how I'm missing meals.
Life and all: It's been busy, but for the most part, it's been a good kind of busy. My son's wedding is at my house in Tennessee next Saturday. Mom is moving into assisted living 10 days after that. Now, it appears that she may have a buyer for her house. That's great news in this economy, but it also means my brother and I are going to have to get the WHOLE HOUSE emptied out....pronto! We were kind of thinking it would be on the market for a while and we could empty it out over a period of several months.
I feel like I just did something like that last spring when I helped my boys with The Great Decluttering Project. Actually, emptying out my parent's house will probably be easier than what I did last spring.
It's all good... when we get through these next few weeks, I'm hoping the whirlwind will die down a little. One good thing about the emptying out the house project is that it is such a physical job, that I won't have any problem keeping my calorie burn up.
Tomorrow, I'll be driving 11 hours by myself down to Tennessee. What fun! NOT!!
It will give me plenty of time to chill out!

Life and all: Started out the day by having a very frustrating conversation with my mom...not fun. Fortunately, I didn't eat over it. My husband helped to get things straightened out. Thank goodness for understanding husbands!
I got a new smartphone and had fun yesterday setting up new apps. It's a whole new world out there!

Weight Loss: I'm seeing the weight come off as I get back to tracking. I was looking at my weight tracker this morning. In April, when I went down to Tennessee to care for my dad, I was at my goal weight of 130. When he died in mid September, I was at 146....16 pounds heavier. This morning, I'm at 141.6...so I've lost 4.5 pounds already from my peak.
The rest of it will come off...been there, done that before. I know what I need to do.
Life and all: My mom called last night all in a tizzy because she got word from the assisted living place she likes so much that she can move in on Nov. 1. That's 10 days after my son's wedding that I'm hosting at my house in Tennessee. It's great news, but it also means we will probably be living in controlled chaos between now an Nov. 1.
I'm hoping that once she gets moved and settled in, she will enjoy her new circle of friends and be less dependent on my brother and myself.
That would be awesome for everyone concerned.
Have a great day, Sparkfriends!

I didn't blog yesterday morning, so here's my report for the last two days.
Total Burned 1,707
Total Burned 1,560
Food and Exercise: Daily reporting is helping me come back in line and show a negative calorie differential more consistently. It's also making me more aware of my need to get back to more consistent exercise, freggie eating and water consumption. I believe it will come back with time and consistent reporting.
Life and all: I ordered a new Android smart phone on Friday night and I'm excited about getting it. I hope it will help with tracking and all sorts of other good things. Friday night, my husband came home and said that his car was "shot". It's 20 years old and I totally agree, so we spent Saturday car shopping. Didn't buy anything because we both want to get a hybrid and there aren't many of them out there. We may have to wait a few months until more become available. I like the Prius, but my husband doesn't. I'd still like to test drive one.
The car stores are closed on Sunday in the Chicago area...so no shopping today no matter what. The weather is great so we will probably go for a nice walk .... much cheaper than car shopping!
Have a great day Sparkfriends!
