Everyday I'm Shuffling...

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

My beau's sisters came in from Denver yesterday, so I expect a busy weekend. Their lack of a car and home right downtown allow them to be much more active naturally than I feel I can be in my corner of Michigan. Driving to work is a necessity due to the absence of public traffic and safe bike paths, and I don't think my beloved road bike (which is gathering dust so far, eep) is up to dealing with some of the potholed, traffic-demon infested roads around here.

The older of his two younger sisters lost 30 lbs since Christmas and she looks amazing. I am going to have to pin her down to figure out how she did it, though it appears to be entirely through altering her eating habits. To each their own strategy, though having some kind of success would be much welcome. I feel like I'm yo-yoing over losing 5 lbs, regaining, and not seeing much progress. I am disappointed and dissatisfied with how it's going, though that will not stop me from getting into the gym.

Misplacing my 'regular' bathing suit has affected me. The slightly larger one I used to wear regularly is now too large, at least up top (I'd sure prefer if it were a bit bigger down below, targeting the problem areas of tummy/butt/thighs) and I keep fearing if I get too vigorous, I'm going to have a bit of a malfunction. That's what hair elastics to adjust the halter straps are for.

But needless to say, I'm having a blast being back in the pool. Only regret is the time (6:50-7:40) is so late in the summer evening and I want to be home, chilling out or socializing with people I get to see but rarely! There's no excuse though.

And better yet, dinner is made for me in the crockpot, just waiting. I fear it's a bit overdone, as it stayed in longer than it was supposed to, but...

    Nope, she's not effortless. As far as I know this is the lightest she's been in 10 years, and she apparently may have done it by severely restricting certain foods and then constantly "shocking" her body by changing up what she eats. e.g., no gluten some days, no this some days, no that some days.

    I'm not so good with that, except not being a heavy meatasaur (I like me plenty of fish though).

    I hope she isn't one of those people who loses weight seemingly effortlessly -- I want to punch those people.

    Re: the bathing suit issue, when I "sport" swim, I almost always wear a sports bra underneath because I am prone to popping out, so see if that works for you, at least until you find your first-string suit.

    I still need to hunt around for where the other one went. But as long as the jeans start fitting looser and shirts a little blousier, I'll be a very happy girl! :)

    Enjoy your swim and your visit with the beau's sisters. It's hard to stay on track when company is in town.

    How awesome that your back-up suit is too large now. Okay, maybe not in the places you'd like it to be too large, but that shows you're making some progress even if the scale isn't showing it.
