Different strokes for different folks
My husband & I have very different views on unpacking. I try to choose boxes with items I think I need -- you never really quite know what is in a box, despite what it's marked, however. My husband just wants to plow through it all & get it over... Read more
Phase 2 complete
Just a quick entry; more later.
The dogs were real troopers on the plane. Everyone -- and everything -- is now in their new home. Of course, there is nowhere to cook or eat, just mountains of boxes everywhere you look.
My biggest prob... Read more
The cats are so NOT into flying
It has been a long, long few days -- with more to come! -- but we all arrived at our new home yesterday. Despite being drugged, Simba started meowing pretty much the moment we got in the car & didn't stop until we arrived home almost 12 hours la... Read more
Life was simpler before computers
I could've written a blog earlier, if our computers hadn't slowed to a crawl. We actually had long periods of downtime today in between bursts of activity (they started packing us up today).
I started my day off with intervals on my treadmi... Read more
Sometimes you do have to say no
I had a frittata for breakfast this morning; I had the same thing yesterday. If you don't know what a frittata is, basically it's an unfolded omelette that you finish off cooking in the oven. So I get my protein and some veggies first thing in t... Read more
Finally, a compliment!
Don't get me wrong, I'm in this for myself. But every once in a while, everyone enjoys a little validation from outside sources -- aside from my husband, there's really been almost nothing.
If anyone has even noticed my weight loss, they ha... Read more
If you don't like what you're doing, you've got to change it up
Sorry for the long title!
People often seem to comment that I have a lot of discipline and self-control. It isn't really quite that simple, tho. I got to thinking about this after lunch with my WW buddies, yesterday. They've both been strug... Read more
Me & my shadow
It is a cool, rainy day -- with thunderstorms on & off, some rather severe. It's unfortunate that it's also the night my husband is supposed to come home. I never sleep well when he comes home late, because he wakes me up and I end up tossing & ... Read more
The perfect storm?
I had a couple of other titles in mind:
Shock & awe -- okay, that one's been overused.
The Moving Diet -- might be appropriate; read on.
Last week's WI was good; very good for me -- over 2 pounds. I'm hoping it was right. There wa... Read more
12,000 is the new 10,000
I think one reason I've been doing well the last few weeks is that I'm effortlessly getting more exercise. Even without having to pack everything up, there's still a lot to do, and I'm just more active. In addition to my normal exercise, I'm get... Read more
The thrill of victory & the agony of defeat
The title's a bit of a stretch, neither one is really all that thrilling, but it's all I've got this morning.
One thing I've been doing all along -- and doing a lot of these last couple of weeks -- is to try to leave a few bites on my plate... Read more
You've got to feel
While my Dad is a rather demonstrative fellow, I've only seen him cry once -- at the grave of the brother I never knew. My mom is rather stoic & somewhat undemostrative; I think her mother was, as well, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tr... Read more
She works hard for the weigh-in
Ok, I've already done a blog post of a similar title. But I have been on a roll. Amazing what stress will do for you. I'll blog more about it on Monday, when I think more people might be around to actually read it. 6 weeks of weight loss. I thin... Read more
I have to remind myself of this a bit more recently. Long before this move, I made it a habit to start and end every day with 10 deep breaths. It's amazing how calming it can be to let everything go and just breathe. Wish I could convince DH of ... Read more
I really seem to be into those acronyms lately, eh?
As our move approaches, I'm sure I will be MIA more than occasionally. Sometimes things just don't go as you planned. Today, for instance, I had to run out to Fedex to fedex my signed port... Read more
