Is it Friday yet?? :)
Today was a good day...this week has been pretty good, actually. It's been somewhat busy, but not overly so. Monday, I ran a couple errands after work. Tuesday, I did the same thing, and mailed off Daughter's Spring photos to some family members. Then today after work, I went to the vet and got all 6 of the furkids flea medicine...even the rabbit! We had another rabbit (she died) but I know for a fact that rabbits get fleas just like any other animal. The vet said he'd never had anyone ask about flea medicine for a rabbit (I was surprised!) but he recommended we get the same thing we use for cats, but in a puppy/kitten formula. It works great. $130 later, all the animals have rabies shots and flea/tick medicine. When I realized the amount, I got a little startled...but then I realized that's really not too bad for 6 animals.
I wonder if chickens get fleas? Probably not. They don't have fur. I ask, not because I'm crazy, but because I have chickens :)
Tonight I'm going to the wake for my co-worker's husband. Some of us ladies from work are meeting there together to go in and just show our support. I can't imagine what a difficult time this is for her. Bless her heart.
I also did well today with my eating. I didn't disgrace myself, I didn't overeat, and I didn't really eat anything I shouldn't have, either. It wasn't a stellar day, but it was a LOT better than it's been. I haven't worked out at all this week, but I'm hoping to get back in the gym tomorrow afternoon. Mother's Day weekend is coming up and I want to do a lot of nice things for myself. I want to go to the gym, give myself a mani-pedi, and I want to buy lots of healthy stuff to eat, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, so I can start juicing again and really get this process going.
I tell ya...I was in the bathroom at work today and I stood on the scale. I weighed myself before I left the house, too (I just wanted to see what the difference was between the two scales). I'm right at 200 pounds -- some days I'm just over, some days I'm just under. I want to get down to 140 pounds. I think that would be a good weight for me. I would feel better, I would look better, I think it is a reasonable, realistic weight that I could maintain. However, this weight ain't gonna lose itself! I feel like such a dummy...I **KNOW** exactly what I need to do, but I just never do it. I need to develop willpower because I don't have any right now. I've got to workout and eat right and make it a priority. I deserve it. My family deserves it.
I read something the other day that I really liked. It said, "Being overweight is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Choose your hard."
g FAT is hard AND it sucks. And, if I have to choose my hard, I'd like to have a nice, healthy, attractive body, too.
