So my scale has been sloooooooooowly slowly slowly moving oh oh plateau okok slooooow sloooooow sloooooooooooow plateau... I mean it's going in the 'right' direction, but heavens to murgatroid it's been at a snails pace.
I *KNOW* that I should be taking it with a grain of salt, but it's still somewhat frustrating.... until.
I measure 1x a month (usually the 1st, but I was in a rush yesterday morning).
I would like to announce *clears throat*
I have lost 10.25 inches off my slowly-shrinking body since October 1st!!!
Okokokok a good 2 of those inches were from where I do *NOT* want it to disappear from *sigh* but I will take the good with the bad!!!
I'm also completely befuddled how my calves apparently have GAINED a quarter of an inch each!!!
But even so, the grand total of waist, hips, neck, arms etc etc...
TEN AND A QUARTER INCHES... GONE!!!
Even if my scale does not show me love, my measuring tape does!!

So October ended off on a bittersweet note. I successfully got back into the "gym" routine only to end off in a plateau partially due to our 'kitten crisis' and the selling (closing date) of my NY home. Two very emotional things, and as we all know, emotional things + diet = not a good combo.
But it's November now right? A whole shiny brand spanking new month, and I'm overdue for a month that straight out rocks.
SO LISSEN UP HERE NOVEMBER - YOU WILL ROCK!
Time to kick myself in the pants to get off this plateau.
Starting with... today!

After 2 days of no gym, horrible eating habits (not eating all day then going to a bad (but really good) burger joint across the street from the hospital, I fulfilled my personal trainer appointment today and got my ass on the treadmill after.
I felt my body considerably "weaker" as I'm completely sleep deprived - but I'm glad I got some working out in, though I kept my phone with me the whole time to hear Bronx updates (my sick kitten whos at the hospital!)
Right after the gym went over to the hospital to visit him!
It's still touch-and-go, he still has a nasty virus - a really bad one - he's on the best supportive care, his fever seems to be going slightly down - which is good - but his blood protein and red blood cell count tanked really low - which is bad.
He's still very bright and alert though, I mean he's not his 100% frisky self, he's obviously sick - but he's not flat out like a pancake.
There's nothing we can really do at this point more than we are already doing - he's got the best supportive care, and it's clear he's fighting hard - it's up to his wee little kitten body if he is strong enough to fight it off.
Prayers, good vibes, healing white light - we appreciate ALL of those!! He's such a sweet good little boy with a big big personality and we couldn't help but fall in love with him!
Here is Bronx getting some TLC from his Daddy, who also happens to be his doctor!

I have been a bit spark-absent the past couple days because after a couple of days of living the high-energy new kitten life my little new bundle of fur decided to get a super-high fever (107!!! normal for cats is ~102, 107 is DANGEROUSLY high)
Anyways just please send good healing vibes, the little guy has been through a lot in his short life, and hit jackpot coming into our home where he would be loved and spoiled and cuddled to bits. He just needs to get better, but he's on his 3rd day now of a severely high fever and not responding to meds or iv fluids :(
The only saving grace is his veterinarian is his daddy, so he's getting the extra-best of vip care... my fiance is running himself ragged doing EVERYTHING he can, and we're both completely losing sleep besides ourselves with worry.
That said, another day I won't be going to the gym... I feel 'guilty', but then again I feel 'guilty' if i DO go, what if Dad calls from the hospital while I'm busy on a treadmill and don't get the call?? And I'm exhausted, I've been downstairs on the couch letting the little one sleep on my chest overnight (with the IV set up next to us - thank god getting married to a Vet has those perks that we can take his whole set up home like that)
I feel really bad our 'established' cat Mojo is missing me HORRIBLY too and being needy (we've been keeping the two cats separate as you're supposed to when getting a new cat)
Anyways, I'll be back sparking hard I'm sure soon, I miss working out and living a 'healthy' life - my food intake has been erratic, not eating all day, then a big dinner, but I'm just worried about the little guy. :(
Healing vibes please for little Bronx!!!
