Cutting 200 calories can do a lot!

Friday, March 15, 2013

I woke up weighing 157.4 today!!!! I feel like I look thinner in the mirror. I am scared to change my scale on here and jinx it so I wont just yet lol Just been cruising cutting 200 calories from what I usually eat. Today at work I tasted what good quality olive oil tastes like, it's supposed to kind of have a peppery burn to the back of your throat. My boss was handing me oil to taste, UGHH, please no!!! lol

My husband has been super stressed lately and it's amazing how contagious stress and unhappiness is. I am really trying to stay away from it cuz I know if I fall into it then it's gonna throw me off my rhythm. He is kind of driving me nuts and I wanna claw at the walls. He had an interview yesterday and he thought it went bad so he was all mopey and super crabby. So I took him out to try to make him feel better. Even tho I had plans of hitting water aerobics. I wanna tell him, Will u please go run and burn off this negative energy!!!So he decided he was gonna get a gross pizza and chocolate and head to the basement to mope some more. So ya I missed water aerobics for that. So what did I do? I put on my running capris and ran out the door for a 3 mile run at dusk. I am not gonna let him drag me down. UGHHHHH I wanna be supportive. But when I am stressed I find an outlit. I don't talk his ear off about the same thing for days straight. I have girlfriends to talk to about my problems. He has no friends, I am his only friend. AHHHHHHH!!!!!

So anyway he got the job offer today, thank god! Especially since I am ovulating and I thought another cycle was gonna be ruined to his stresses. Trying my best to stay sane and stay away from him except when I need him lol Right now he's talking his mother ear off, thank god. Work was super sad this week. This girl that lives above lost a baby at birth on Monday. I can't imagine what her and her boyfriend are going through. That has to be one of the hardest things to do deal with. I shouldn't be complaining about my husband crabbing when theres such terrible things going on. I guess if I could get a word in edgewise with him, I could tell him that lol Ahhhhh men! Oooh I bought myself new vibrams this week. Hopefully that will give me more momentum to run.

  Keep on hanging in there! Where will he be working?

I wanted to go to water aerobics too but I had 7th-grader drama going on yesterday and I couldn't do anything else but deal with her. :(

    Wow! He got another job offer?! Is he going to leave his "new" job that he just got for it? I hope this turns his mood around-- for both of your sakes! :-)

    Congrats on the weight loss. I always keep some good quality olive oil. You can get by with the cheaper stuff for some things but others require the good stuff.

I take it that he wants the new job. LOL. Hopefully his mood will change now.
