Day 35....

Ah,Sunday. I welcomed my husband back home from the road and we went to our new home. It was nice to have my little family there. It feels more like home since Al is back. He makes our home complete.

Yesterday was a bit stressful though. Unfortunately, I went over my calorie goal by about 150. The didn't really bother me though, because it still wasn't horrible. I didn't binge or anything. I was mostly stressed from all my physical pain. I felt some better after my nap. There was more packing and unloading to do yesterday. I also watched the football game and had pizza with Nick and Kelsey. (You knew if I had an off day is was going to involve the pizza monster, didn't you?)

Food - I ate half a banana, slices of bacon and unsweetened tea for breakfast. For lunch, as I said, I had pizza. Two slices... meat lovers... it was a large pie... I completely underestimated the calories in that. Then I passed out from being full and happy during the game. Thank God Pittsburgh pulled off the win with me snoring instead of cheering! LOL Then, by the time I picked up my hubs, the hour was late. He and I were both tired. Ugh. We succumbed to the clown and ate at McDonald's. Bleah. There I had a McDouble and a small french fry.... oh, and a Diet Coke. I did better today, but I will tell you about that tomorrow.

I didn't formally exercise, but again and moving a lot more than I was, so I was happy with yesterday, over all.

The move is going well, but I am beginning to feel so nostalgic for the old house..... I guess I will adjust.

Something I'd like to focus on today is stress. Getting rid of excess weight really requires stress control. Besides the drama of over eating, there is the whole cortisol thing... Cortisol is a stress hormone. Unfortunately, it also contributes to excess belly fat. Not good. So, I try really hard to keep my stress at a minimum. Sadly, moving is a terribly stressful event, even if you choose to move and are happy about moving. This move has been stressful for me, but I will get it back under control. I won't give up.

Peace and Blessings to All,


Keep smilin' friends... weight loss is much easier if you can smile!
