I'll admit it. Last night I was getting scared to get on the scale in the morning. Who could blame me? Two previous weeks of eating & working out perfectly and a gain each time.
I was watching TV with my borderline autistic brother, Sam, last night. I got up to turn on the fan and he turned to me and said "Acacia (my real name), you are looking slimmer." Now, anyone that works with autistic kids knows they don't make comments like this ever. I have never ever heard him say this to anyone. It made me feel AMAZING. Thank you, Sam. I love him.
Got on the scale this morning and I'm down 2.9 pounds! HELL YEAH! Thank you everyone for the support the last two weeks - it's been tough. I'm hoping all this muscle I'm getting from crossfit is now doing it's job on my metabolism.
Quick update on other things since I've been MIA in the blog sections...
Sam finished his classes at the college. We're looking for a job for him in Powell or Cody. Until we get him a job (and an apartment after that), he's staying with me. He had an interview at Walmart and at the Buffalo Bill HIstorical Center yesterday. I'm hoping he gets the museum job because that's a pretty cool place.
Brandon finished Grad school with a 4.0! What a smart guy! He was here for a few days and we went to Billings and got him a suit - jacket, vest, shirt & tie (except the pants since he'll be wearing jeans) for the wedding. It was his idea and let me tell you guys...he looks SO hot! Wow.
Brandon applied for a job in Gillette (an hour from my parent's WY ranch & where I grew up) and we should hear back from that in the next two weeks. He also applied for a job in Miles City, MT. Not too far away from home, and I like Montana. I'm starting to get stressed about where we're going to go, but I'm not going to project that onto him because I'm sure he's just as worried if not more than me.
Everyone have a wonderful weekend - supposed to be cool and rainy here.
