  • Feeling good tonight!

    9/18/2014 8:58:46 PM, by CATTUTT

    This morning when I woke up I felt curious about the scale. Part of me was screaming "GOD NO! It's TOM! Don't get on!" but the curious part won, and I got on. Much to my {very happy!} surprise, I was down 1.4 lbs since Monday. I was so excited! I'm at 260.6, so very close to being under 260, h... Read more

  • Who exercised twice today? Me! Me!

    9/17/2014 9:00:24 PM, by CATTUTT

    So, once again did not make it through the night without eating. This song and dance is getting old, I know, but I want to keep myself honest here and admit that it happened. On to other things... So I woke up this morning not feeling great. TOM is here, and brought it's friends like C... Read more

  • So close!

    9/16/2014 8:40:48 PM, by CATTUTT

    Well, I almost made it through yesterday unscathed. I made it to bed still on plan, no extra snacking or anything. Fell asleep like a baby. And then woke up in the middle of the night, had to pee, and ended up eating. Grrrr! I didn't go wild and binge or anything, but still, very annoying. ... Read more

  • I wanna clear something up...

    9/15/2014 9:01:46 PM, by CATTUTT

    When I wrote last night's blog, I was definitely thinking "me me me" and being self-centered. I want to amend what I said to say my friend has done an AMAZING job of losing the weight. She has not taken any short cuts or done anything unhealthy. It has all been hard work, a healthy diet and exerc... Read more

  • Half motivated and half depressed...

    9/14/2014 8:16:09 PM, by CATTUTT

    A friend of mine here in Columbus has been losing weight for a while. She started at 234 and hit 169 yesterday. She posted a before and after picture, the before in a sports bra and workout shorts and the after in a bikini. My mind is BLOWN. She looks absolutely amazing. Just amazing. It's mot... Read more

  • Lovely time at Market Day!

    9/13/2014 8:50:07 PM, by CATTUTT

    Dh and I went to Olde Worthington Market Day today. It's basically an arts and crafts festival. The weather was amazing, low 60s and only partly sunny. The main street through town is shut down and there are artists lining both sides of the road. As I expected, much of it was very pricey. But n... Read more

  • Impending Fall...

    9/12/2014 8:54:27 PM, by CATTUTT

    It has been such a lovely day here! It was completely cloudy all day and never got above the mid 60s. My ideal kind of day. Fall is really coming and I got a taste of it. To celebrate, I got a small non-fat pumpkin spice latte. I love pumpkin flavored stuff, and I figured the small nonfat latte... Read more

  • Stumbling across new music is like finding buried treasure!

    9/11/2014 9:17:00 PM, by CATTUTT

    I'm actually really excited to workout tomorrow. By accident I came across a new band, and then started playing a radio station based on them, and discovered a bunch more awesome new bands. {The Birthday Massacre, if anyone is curious.} It's exactly what I've been looking for... up tempo rock tha...

  • Horray for tech support!

    9/10/2014 8:36:39 PM, by CATTUTT

    For several days now I've been complaining that Spotify wouldn't work on my phone. I finally gave up and got the Pandora app, only to have it do the exact same thing Spotify was doing. At that point I had dh get the Spotify app and see if it worked for him, and it did. So obviously the problem wa... Read more

  • One more warm day before the fall weather sets in...

    9/9/2014 8:56:21 PM, by CATTUTT

    Tomorrow it is supposed to be in the mid 80s, and then starting Thursday and for the next 10 days, only in the 60s or low 70s. I'm so excited about that. I love when the weather starts turning towards fall. This is probably just a little cool snap and it ill get warm again, since it's still only ... Read more

  • You win some, you lose some I guess...

    9/8/2014 9:02:26 PM, by CATTUTT

    This day did not start out well. I woke up at 6 am with a really bad headache behind my right eye. I tried to go back to sleep but it was hurting so badly it was making me feel nauseous. So I got up and took some Advil and held a cold cloth to my head for an hour, waiting for the pain to let up. ... Read more

  • Happy scale surprise...

    9/7/2014 8:46:14 PM, by CATTUTT

    I have been avoiding the scale like the plague. My eating has been pretty crappy for the last 5 or 6 weeks, and my exercise was minimal. I kept putting off getting on the scale because I was terrified of what I'd see, but I finally did it. I was only up to 262. My lowest was 258.6 and I only saw... Read more

  • Stupid, stupid appetite...

    9/6/2014 9:21:46 PM, by CATTUTT

    The day started out really well. I didn't wake up til it was time for the game {Penn St} to start, so I ate breakfast, played online, and watched football until halftime. Then I went out and walked. It was a perfect day for a walk, low 70s and cloudy, not a bit of sun. Just my kind of day. I wa... Read more

  • You guys have no idea how much I appreciate you!

    9/5/2014 8:59:02 PM, by CATTUTT

    So, when I woke up today I was feeling really lazy. I sat for a few minutes, then my rumbling belly got the best of me and I went and made food. I made a pb & banana sandwich and a few pita chips. I was starving and poured out more chips than I should have had, but no where NEAR the amount of chi... Read more

  • Let's get this ball rolling!

    9/4/2014 8:57:54 PM, by CATTUTT

    I'm finally feeling about 90% normal. The urge to sleep 24/7 seems to have disappeared, and I'm finding I have more energy. I think I need to take a valuable lesson from this -- do NOT let myself run out of thyroid medication again. I didn't think it would be a big deal, but obviously it was. I ... Read more

  • Feeling a bit better...

    9/3/2014 8:59:09 PM, by CATTUTT

    It was a task to drag myself out of bed again this morning. I didn't manage to do so until noon. Things got better after that though. For one, I didn't go back to bed an hour later and sleep another couple of hours. Although I was super tired when I woke up, I slowly got going. I turned on some... Read more

  • Hoping I have the solution...

    9/2/2014 9:08:10 PM, by CATTUTT

    Today has been another rough day. I slept late, woke up, and then went back to sleep and slept more. I've been without my thyroid medication for a few days {not smart, I know}, and I have a feeling this weary, crappy thing I've got going on is a combination of the lack of thyroid meds and my aller...

  • Not feeling so hot...

    9/1/2014 8:54:46 PM, by CATTUTT

    I'm really dragging today. I'm not sure exactly what's going on, but I'm tired and weak and just want to sleep 24 hours a day. My allergies are also bothering me, so that's probably part of it, but... ugh. Anyway, despite feeling fairly crappy, I have eaten pretty well today. I did not baby ... Read more

  • Yawning, sniffling and sneezing...

    8/31/2014 9:13:27 PM, by CATTUTT

    My allergies are apparently sucking the life out of me today. I'm exhausted, and I've been sniffly and sneezy all evening. Otherwise, though, it has been a good day. I kind of got a late start, not waking up til my alarm went off at 12:20. I almost didn't set an alarm cause I was sure I would wa... Read more

  • Getting back on the straighter and more narrow...

    8/30/2014 9:31:24 PM, by CATTUTT

    This day did not start well. I woke up, excited for the first Ohio State game of the season. When it was time, we turned the tv on... and discovered we don't get that channel. First Buckeye game of the year, and I was going to have to miss it. Grrrr. I pouted for a while, then we went out... Read more

  • Exhibiting a little self control today...

    8/29/2014 8:24:04 PM, by CATTUTT

    Last night dh and I were watching a movie, and halfway through, only a little after 11, I was so sleepy I felt sick. {I get nauseous when I get overly tired, I dunno what that's about...} So I went to bed, and was asleep within 5 minutes. I woke up a lot throughout the night, but that's normal. ... Read more

  • Dh was in a logical mood...

    8/28/2014 9:15:51 PM, by CATTUTT

    So I asked dh about going to see A Christmas Carol. He told me that it was up to me and we could go if I wanted, but he pointed out that it's in Dec and the weather might be crappy. I hadn't thought about that, and after he said it, I changed my mind about going. I knew that if the weather was ba... Read more

  • Hoping dh is in a generous mood...

    8/27/2014 9:12:40 PM, by CATTUTT

    For some reason I decided it was a good idea to look at events going on in Columbus. I found that, one day after what will be our 14th anniversary, there's a live show of A Christmas Carol going on downtown. To say I want to go is a massive understatement. Also, there are still front row seats av... Read more

  • Home sweet home...

    8/26/2014 9:16:44 PM, by CATTUTT

    Last night was wonderful. It was so nice to be back on my futon in my house. I fell asleep almost as soon as my head hit the pillow and slept peacefully. I woke up at 11 this morning and stayed up til 12:30, then went back to bed and slept til 2. So I've caught up on my rest, and it felt wonderf... Read more

  • So tired, and so glad to be home...

    8/25/2014 9:03:09 PM, by CATTUTT

    We're back from the land of no communication. From mid-day on Saturday til this morning, I mostly had no cell service. It was a long couple days. The trip was okay though. Here's some photos... Ginger, on our way to Virginia... Read more

  • 10 hours til we hit the road...

    8/22/2014 9:04:52 PM, by CATTUTT

    Today has been a busy day. It started off slow with sleeping in. After I got up I ate some breakfast and gave the kitchen a good cleaning. Not long after that it was time to wake dh up to head out. I woke him up at 2:30 and we left as soon as he got dressed, and it was after 7 when we got ba... Read more

  • Stress eating...

    8/21/2014 9:11:31 PM, by CATTUTT

    T Minus one more day until vacation and the stress is really setting in. I keep trying to tell myself the trip is worse in my mind than it will be in reality, but I don't seem to be convincing myself. I think I'll feel a lot better once 6:30 am on Saturday rolls around and we get on the road. I t... Read more

  • The picture that made my day...

    8/20/2014 9:21:22 PM, by CATTUTT

    As I've mentioned in passing in a couple blogs, a dear SP friend just had a baby. XANGELSTEARZX gave birth to her son Kody, and they just came home from the hospital on Monday. She just posted this pic... Of him wearing a one... Read more
