Oh the time flies

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I am still on the roller coaster. Mid May I was laid off from my job with no chance of going back. That was 2 months ago. I weighed 210 at lay off point. With so much going on and feeling stressed I did what I needed to do on a daily basis. This included taking my husband to dr. and therapy appts from an accident injury. Taking care of a granddaughter I am raising. Cleaning out my house in hopes of doing the less is more and having a garage sale all summer long. As all this was going on I started to feel less stressed, but still wasn't paying much attention to ME. A couple days ago just out of the blue one morning, I decided to step on the scale. Holy cow, I was down to 198. 12 lbs. gone in 2 months without even trying. I attribute this to a whole new routine without the stress of a job I really didn't want anyway, but needed a paycheck. Well I have to say that this 12 lb weight loss got me excited. Last night I ordered MYSELF a Jawbone UP. Can't wait to get it and am excited to use it. I will be 50 in Dec. and really need to get my health under control.
My husband is back to work part time and limited duty. That is hard for him since he is co owner of a family business and it is all hard work! I have decided to continue and step up with more selling on ebay. I had been doing some selling while working as I had time. Now I have lots of time. I am also quite crafty. So want to start using all the craft supplies I have here to make some cool items and see if they will sell. Hoping to be a stay at home/work at home Grammommy so I can spend all my extra time with Lily.
Time to go start some supper and hang out laundry!
