Yesterday, while running errands, I had something fun happen.
I was getting into my car, after stopping someplace, when a truck full of guys drove past and yelled, "Hey, Baby! Woo Hoo!"
Now, my first thought was, "They must not realize how old I am." Then, I realized that it's been years since anyone has yelled like that at me. So, I had to text my husband to tell him the exciting news! lol
I wasn't wearing anything sexy, just a T-shirt, jeans, sweater and Chuck Taylors, so it must have been all of my hard work with diet and exercise.
All I can say is, "Thank Goodness for rednecks in pick up trucks!"

Okay, first of all, as a follow up to my last blog, I still haven't heard from my eldest son. I did, however, hear from my youngest. He told me they eldest has a new girlfriend. He also told me not to "go all mom about it." A little facebook spying tells me she's a nurse. Let's hope she's a good influence for him.
Now, for the dirt! Shame on me! I am in maintenance right now, but I'm not maintaining. There have been too many nights eating out and making poor choices. I'm slipping into old habits and I have to stop.
Yesterday, I biked a metric (61 miles) which included a mountain climb. Probably burned over 2,000 calories. When I got home I was famished! I lost track of how many calories I stuffed in.
I'll be out on my bike today. I've got the output under control. It's the intake that I have a problem with. That's what I'll be focusing on. I'm very close to having to adjust my calories and going back into a weight loss mode, which is something that I was hoping I wouldn't have to do!
This is definitely a challenge!

I haven't blogged in a while. I didn't have much to say lately. I reached my goal, have been watching my calorie range to maintain and life has been moving right along. But....
Well, yesterday was a bad one. The weather was cold and windy (20-25 mph). I was supposed to bike up one of the local mountains, but wimped out and stayed home. (Mistake #1) After doing a few household chores, I plopped down on my couch to watch a movie. (Mistake #2) The movie was good, but then I continued to sit there till 11pm, only getting up to stuff my pie hole! (Mistake of all mistakes!!)
This morning, I'm 3 pounds heavier!! Yikes!!
Today, I have to get off my butt and move!
Here are a couple other things that have been on my mind lately:
I have 2 sons who live in Wisconsin (900 miles away). The older one, who is almost 25, has always made life challenging. He is living his life on the edge, one step ahead of living under a bridge. We've tried to help him before, but each time we get burned. Now, we've taken a step back to let him live his life as he chooses. If he's happy that way, that's fine. My issue is that he doesn't answer my calls, texts, facebook messages, etc. I haven't talked to him since Christmas. I don't even get an acknowledgement that he received any messages. Last summer, he did tell me that he was angry about us abandoning him when we moved. (He was 22 years old when we moved!) Seriously, I think he'd be living the same life, no matter where we lived. My younger son talked to him and he said he's just been busy. Too busy for a 2 minute text message? I bet he has time to text his friends and play video games! My husband was up there in January and he tried a couple of times to get together with him and it didn't happen. I feel that this has turned into a power play. I wish he would grow up emotionally and quit acting like an immature teenager. Those days should be long gone!
Another rant about my own behaviour:
I have not been happy with my attitude lately. I have been very critical of others, passing judgement too quickly and not thinking of others as individuals. I can find fault in everything and I don't want to be that way. I have always been considered "nice," which is a good way to be. I'm not seeing that lately. I've been spending too much time picking things and people apart.
That's going to change TODAY!!! I don't know everything and I need to open myself up to other experiences, ideas and opinions.
Okay, enought ranting! It's off my chest and now I can move on. The sun is shining today and I'm ready to get my body moving.
Have a great day, Everyone!!

Somehow, I'm being plagued by a virus on Sparkpeople. I'll be on it and some kind of pop-up takes over. The only way out is control/alt/delete.
Is anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions? It's not having any problems with any other websites.
My husband tightened up my security. (I'm pretty computer illiterate.) I keep doing virus scans and cleaning up cookies, hoping maybe SP will clean it up on thier end.
If you don't hear much from me, that's why. I'm not ignoring anyone!!!

Okay, enough sitting around feeding the pain.
I got on the scale today and was up 3.8 pounds since Thursday, when I cut off the tip of my thumb. I've been turning to comfort food too much, as if that would ease the pain.
I normally don't like taking medicine, but I have been religiously taking the Lortab that I was prescribed. Slept really well last night and woke up thinking that I might stop taking it today. Well, I have a throbbing hitchhicker thumb right now and I'm debating on whether to take one or not. The side effects stink.
Heavy exercise is still out of the question. I'm passing up some awesome bike rides in this beautiful, warm weather this weekend. Maybe a walk will work later.
I hate this!!
