Well, well, well...I sure have fallen off of the SparkPeople wagon. Ugh. Well, it seems my last update was 11/19/10. So much has happened since then! I'll give you a quick rundown of the new stuff that has happened: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, LOTS of stressful times. My husband rolled his car 9 times just 4 days before Christmas (and by the grace of God did not get a scratch on him), the furnace in our house (which is SUPER expensive, by the way) went out on Christmas day, leaving us with no heat for four days, I got a puppy! A black lab who I named Bella and have spoiled rotten, OH! And I quit SMOKING! Yes, you read right: I quit. I'm a quitter. It has been the hardest thing I have EVER done and today makes day 6 with absolutely NO tobacco! Now, on to more pressing matters. I have gained back a few pounds. The last time I weighed in on here, I weighed 177. I now weigh 182 again. I haven't been doing well with my eating, and have either been too busy or snowed in with the recent string of snow storms to get to the gym. I know, no excuse, right? Well, I'm not giving up. The quitting smoking thing has been BRUTAL for my diet. I think the weight I have gained has all been within the last few days....all I want to do is eat, eat eat! Can somebody help me with this??? Considering the holidays, stress, and quitting smoking I kind of am impressed with myself. I maintained my weight loss rather well. I still work out, though not as much as I did before, and I still watch what I eat, though I am much more lenient than before. UGH. I guess I just need to go full-force on here and be super strict again, because damn it, I have a goal! I want to be 160 by the time summer hits! LET'S DO THIS!
