You Can Knock But There's Nobody Home

Monday, September 17, 2012

This is yet another pic from my birthday party. Oh, and the song? There's, erm, a few swear words in it. Enjoy but maybe with earbuds while at work.

Anyway --

Incredibly, I am on my second week in a row of losing.

What magical, mysterious thing am I doing?

I have no freakin' clue.

It's true!

I am just doing my usual thing. If anything, I am doggin' it more when it comes to exercise. Hence it's possible that I was undereating before, and by working out less, I am actually fixing that issue instead.


I am still six (yes, you read that right) pounds down from two weeks ago.

Lower body measurements are up slightly, but otherwise, everything is hunky dory.


And so, dear readers, as I wonder wtf is going on (but am not complaining, mind you), I continue to attempt to focus. Last week I wrote about focus. Well, there is of course more to focus on.

I am starting to wrap my head around my mother turning 80. This will be in January, but of course one must plan for such things. With little disposable income that isn't promised to something else (like mortgage payments and the like), I am getting a little concerned about getting something grand enough, or making a grand enough gesture or the like. It is not that I don't care and it is not that I am reluctant. It's more that it's just a ton to do. And what I hope was made somewhat clear last week remains the case - life is busy. Hence getting from Point A (thinking about doing something) to Point Z (actually doing whatever that is) just looking daunting.

I will think of something, I am sure. But right now I am at the "it looks like a really big cliff" stage of things. I need to get that cliff to diminish, but only time will do that. Ah, well. Can we fast-forward to December, please?

In the meantime, I suppose I will keep doggin' it (hey, it's working!) and perhaps I can rope my brother into stressing about our mother's birthday! Enjoy the Hooters. With earbuds on.

    You are on a roll. Wonderful pict. And great to be losing. Hey I don't know how I missed this. Sorry. I love reading your blogs. Maybe I was too self involved with my own bird day and working to get over the ten pound marker. So glad we are pals. I always learn from you.

    Kudos to you!

    What a great pic of you! I'm so glad the scale is moving for you again. It gives me hope (and motivation) that if I can get my plan working consistently again that it will actually result in the scale moving for me too. :)

    Thank you so much for the link to the Hooters on YouTube. I was just talking to about them to Mr. Rider yesterday. What a weird coincidence! I am originally from the Philly area and spent many fun nights at local clubs at their shows.

    Good luck with everything you have on your schedule!
