According to my scale and most likely water weight I'm up to 232 from 228 yesterday morning. But, I munched on about 1 ounce of pumpkin seeds that are slathered with salt and topped it off with Sonic for dinner so, my sodium was outrageous yesterday. I've increased my water consumption for the day in hopes to flush it out. I liked seeing that 228 too much to give up that easily on it.

I went for a jog today despite the wind and clouds that moved in...I really needed the fresh air. Ok, I'll call it a slog (slow jog) but, I really wasn't up to par and it was more of a one of those cheesy tush wiggling power walks. Luckily the only neighbor that might seen me doing my dork walk wasn't home.

I got a summons today...I'm being sued for city maintenance for a property I inherited a few years ago and then promptly gave away because it was a nightmare. I have no clue what they do for stuff like this but, I have no income and my husband and I co-own our property (note our house doesn't count because it's a trailer and has been assessed at zero value) and our truck. Financially, I'm pretty worthless. My uber-optimistic friend said the worst they could do is ask for time served for monetary value. Honestly, I know squat about stuff like that so I choose to feel like I have nothing to worry about because I couldn't afford a lawyer if I wanted one.

My husband is thinking I need to send many more positive thoughts out into the universe because it and I seem to be at odds lately. Saying that my sour funk has brought sour repercussions. Someone has been watching The Secret a lot lately. Seriously though I really love that movie. But, if I get really honest with myself for a bit here...I have been a grouchy b*tch much more than necessary lately and I have been extremely hard on him for a while. Maybe it was the butt load of Clomid and DHEA last month but, I've felt a little more chipper for a few days.

Sleep is becoming a long desired dream around here. I've been on the lady at the doctor's office because we're more than ready for her to get hubby's Bi-Pap machine ordered so he can sleep safely again. The last few days he's stayed up almost all night and been very chatty. While we need more conversation anything in my brain turns to mush around 2 am. He's only sleeping in the early morning after I wake up because sometimes I have to shake him to make him breathe again.

I've been doing the 20-Minute Dumbbell workout for four days. I've got to switch it up tonight. I'm finally dragging myself into somewhat or a groove doing cardio in the mornings and strength training videos after dinner. I feel a lot more accomplished that way. Tonight I'm thinking squats and push-ups will be my equivalent of a rest day from strength training.

Well, it's about time to start dinner. Turkey meatloaf muffins, mashed sweet potatoes, and spinach. Cooking from scratch is a great way for me to relieve stress. Which surprisingly isn't too bad despite having a tosser of a day.

    Sorry to hear of your issues and I hope they all turn out okay. They usually do, even if it's not what we want.
