Mid February 2018 Report
Saturday, February 17, 2018
It's been three weeks since I vowed to get back on the wagon. My exercising and walking isn't where it should be. The two surgeries and the broken back last year definitely got me out of the habit. All the rain we've had in Alabama has not helped. I still feel I have SADD in the winter and the grey days want to make me stay on the couch. I don't - must of the time.
If I go by the Weight Watchers scale, I lost 6 pounds. If I go by the Scale Back Alabama scale, it's 9 pounds. Somehow, I don't have a lot of faith in a scale that was brought from someone's Mom's bathroom. (At least that is what it looks like!) So I will still with the 6 pounds. That's 2 a week, and that's pretty good.
I am coming along on getting the apartment the way I want it. The biggest road block is that the furniture from Michigan hasn't been delivered yet. I don't want to put pictures up or things out until I do. I've been back in Alabama for almost 3 years now. My mind's a little rusty as to what all I have. And the fact that Tim's used it for 2 of those years means that I don't really know what condition things are in. He's really a neatnit kind of guy. But 2 years are 2 years.
My bills are caught up pretty much right now. This surprises me considering I know we've spent $500 easy on the apartment. And it's little things: new dishes, silverware, pots and pans. All necessary though and it helps with the bad mood. I find myself in a store for a couple hours every time I go to get something for the house. Nothing else until the furniture gets here!
I probably will spend a little money on summer clothes. My bathing suit of 2 summer's ago finally bit the dust. I don't like many that I see out there yet. My bikini days are long gone. And I don't want something that looks like MY grandma should be wearing it. If anyone has suggestions on where to look, I'm all ears.
My next goal is to find something new and somewhat inexpensive to do this summer. I'm stuck in a rut and I want to get out.
