Day 157: I'm Back!!!

Monday, June 18, 2012

What a Batty week I've had. Har, Har, Har! :P This week has been crazy. We went to the mountains for 9 days, getting back yesterday later in the afternoon. I tried to walk as much as I could but not enough I know. I did really well eating except one day where I REALLY bombed. I still feel sick from it. That was Saturday. It was the one day we just stayed at the house and didn't do anything. Apparently, I'm not good with not doing anything. Apparently I eat everything when I don't do anything. lol! Seriously, I was sick to my stomach all day yesterday from it. Overall though, I didn't do too bad. No sodas or cakes or candy. I even survived a dinner at the Golden Corral. I stuck to my fruit and salad while everyone else was piled up with yummy smelling, questionable looking, food. :)
Now to get to the batty part. :) On Tuesday morning we woke to bats in the house. My mom and dad had the chimneys rebuilt last year and apparently the guys did not put screen on them to keep bats from flying in the house. Which they did. Which means we had to go to the emergency room and start a SERIES of rabies shots. I got 5 the first day, went back for another on Thursday and will go today for my 3rd and then again for my 4th in a few days, then I'm done. The boys each got 3 to start and then one each trip back. I REALLY REALLY hate it for them. If I could get all of their shots so they wouldn't have to I would. These things hurt. AND THANK GOD I lost weight!!!! It goes by weight! My mom got 7 shots and my dad GOT 10!! Now that is motivation!! Lose weight now just in case you come in contact with bats! lol!
The state tested one of the bats and it was negative for rabies but said we still all had to get the shots since there were multiples (4 all together). But, it's almost done now so that's good. We made it! :)
You should really see it up there. It's so pretty and has the prettiest park ever. I loved going to walk there and the boys loved playing there and getting in the river. And they had music on Friday nights too. SO nice. It's so neat seeing all of the families picnicking while all of the kids runs round and play. And when you walk the path you can hear the music all through the park echoing off of the mountains. Really neat. If I could put this house in walking distance of that park with those temperatures, I would be one happy girl! :)

Time to weigh in!

    You've done great! I thought it was interesting that your starting weight and your current weight are pretty much exactly the same as where I started and what I lost down to last year.

    Don't feel guilty about vacation. We're going to eat more calories some days on vacations. The thing to do is just plan for that around them. Some thing like that will delay a "perfect schedule" of weight loss, but it doesn't matter as long as you stick with it in the long run. I always say: It's not a race, it's a life.

    It sounds like a lovely break, except for the bats. I'm a pharmacist, so I know all about those shots.. dispensed many in our hospital, and happy to say that I have never had to have one. But you are so right... that's such a motivation for losing weight... actually, come to think of it, there are many such reasons for losing weight! : ))
    Glad its almost over, I trust the screen is getting replaced!!!!
    Best Wishes,

    emoticon on doing so well with your weight loss. Keep it up because it is worth it. I'm still a work in progress.

    Terrible about the bats. Can't imagine going through what you are with the shots, especially for the little ones.

    Take care!

    That's so scary! I'm so sorry about the bats and rabies shots. I've heard they're extremely painful. I'm glad you and the family are ok! I missed reading your blogs while you were gone. You must be so excited .2 pounds away from your 50 pound goal!!

    Sorry about the bats and the shots. But how cool is it that you didn't have to get as many!!! Reminds me of a John Candy movie though.

    Glad you had a great time and got to take a break from all the madness and recharge your batteries.

    Why did you have to get shots? I thought that was only if they bit you? How scary...I've heard they are very painful. Sorry you and your family have to go through this.

    You are doing amazing on the steady weight loss! emoticon
