Roscoe's still missing. We caught a total of 5 cats this weekend and since then the trap has remained empty.
We've added more fresh bait to it from time to time, also DH added some treats and even a couple doggie cookies, and some DAP (some kind of Dog Pheremone crap to help them feel calm and safe???)... yeah.
Something's eating the food we're putting out (maybe not just cats) and something tore down the hoodie that had his scent on it and ripped off one of the sleeve cuffs (definitely not a cat)... so we're hoping it was Roscoe. :P Stupid pup! COME HOME. And don't just play around outside when we're asleep so we don't know you're there.
Anyway -- I ate soooooooooooooo badly this weekend again. And again on Monday night. I was kind of like -- Scale Back Alabama starting weigh-in is Monday and I want to be heavier for that anyway so....... I succumbed to all emotional eating. Emotionally I was a total wreck yesterday as well.
And I ate like a million mini cinnamon rolls and some peppermint candy cane filling oreos and also dinner.... yeah. And other stuff I'm sure... the obvious downfall of not really caring AND not keeping track. Bingetastic.
My Scale Back Alabama weighin was ridiculously high again -- but I ate a big breakfast and drank tons of water and layered heavy clothing to try to sandbag a bit... BWHAHA.
Today I weighed at the gym again though and got 176. SO! After a horrible eating last night it could be slightly inflated but that's what I'm gonna go with.
I'm going to change my information in SP to reflect THAT number and set my goals to get to 165 by the week before the end of the Scale Back Alabama challenge I think... we'll see. Definitely before the end though.
And as long as I weigh less than 171 on weigh-in day with my clothes on, I will have accomplished the challenge task.
Also this morning I went to Spin class as well as doing some warm up walking and some crunches. Tomorrow I'll be at the gym w/ my gym buddy and I'll focus on doing upper and lower body ST, maybe some additional cardio as well. We'll see.
I am so upset about Roscoe still being gone it's driving me absolutely insane but I'm not going to let myself completely fall apart. I've DECIDED that the position I'm going to take is -- I've done all I can do. I can still do all the checking of traps, checking listings, etc., each day without neglecting all other responsibilities (taking care of myself, work productivity), and definitely without just sitting around moping. :( It's hard not to dwell on it and want to just put everything on hold until we get him back but it's just not realistic or healthy to do those things, so I'm going to try not to.
