I wish I could pinpoint what has made my weight start moving again, but I don't want to jinx it by looking a gift horse in the mouth!
I'm down to 146.5! I'm really amazed. Only 10.5 pounds away from a healthy BMI. If I was to guess, I would say it is a greater consistency in my eating and the addition of the women's running clinic. I did not remove any workouts but added 3 more per week.
My rest day yesterday was not as active as I planned; I cleaned about half the house thoroughly and then TC came in and we watched a video. If you get a chance to watch "The Exotic Marigold Hotel", do so. It actually kept my interest the whole way through and has wonderful messages about aging and life in general!
Nancy- asked when I was seeing our granddaughter again; we've been Skyping every Sunday but we'll see her the first and third weeks in June and then again the first week in July. That will probably be it for the year. She's a little doll as you can see below for yourself! She's nearly 12 weeks old and weighs 8 pound, 8 ounces.
The best pacifier in the world! It doesn't fall out because the stuffed animal keeps it "anchored".
Rebecca getting a little bored with the conversation:
In unhappy news, my daughter spontaneously woke up with Bell's Palsy, which the doctor said was not unusual after giving birth. Anyone else ever hear that? The whole left side of her face is drooping, she has trouble talking and she has to wear an eyepatch because she can't blink her eye. The doc said 70% of cases go away in 6 months. I'm worried about the other 30%! Poor thing!
In the most unhappy news, my dad saw his oncologist and has been given "a few months" to live. I feel pretty helpless 1,000 miles away, but we'll be up there in about 5 weeks. We are praying for "a good end".
Until next time Sparkfriends, be sure to live each day gratefully and to the fullest. You just never know....
