More Blogging!

Wednesday, February 06, 2019

I am trying to be more diligent with my blogging. With all the craziness in my life the last few weeks I have had a hard time finding time to sit down and write a blog. Today is the day.

Herb had his first surgery and everything is going good.

I have been doing well with my exercise and maybe not so good with my eating as I have gained 4 lbs. I am currently up to 222 lbs. and I was down to 218 at the beginning of the year. I am guessing the weight gain is due to poor food choices along with stress.

Last week within a 24 hour period I had a broken furnace, broken car and a broken water pipe. Throw in Herb coming home from the hospital, you can see why I was a little stressed out. I have figured out what is wrong with the furnace (the thermostat), I got the battery and headlight fixed on the car, and the broken water pipe is cleaned up and can wait to be fixed until the spring.

So far this week the car is broken again with some loud thumping from the front end. The car will be going into the shop on Friday – in the meantime I am driving Herb’s car – as he is not able to drive at this time anyway. So it is all good and I’m trying not to stress out as to what is wrong with my car and how much it is going to cost.

I am back on track with my eating and exercising and I am sure those 4 pounds are going to be sliding off shortly. I revised my exercise plan in September 2018 and if I don’t get these lbs. off in the next few weeks I will think about revising it again.

The temperature went from -14 last week to +52 this week. Which is just crazy for North Eastern PA in February! I am enjoying the warmer weather but I know it will not last, we will be back to normal next week with snow and cold temperatures!

I’m not sure what else I have to say so I guess that is it for this time! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!

    Hello. I enjoyed reading your blog. I find that one of the best things about SP is the space to blog and chart and share photos. Everything is in one place for each of us, on our pages. The idea of blogging or journaling is so important to me, as I get great insight into myself and what makes me tick.

    I am sorry that you have had a tough time, but be easy on yourself. 4 pounds is not 5 or 10 or 20. Stress is a real block to weigh-tloss, and the fact that it keeps one from sleeping well only adds to that block.

    You can be proud of all you have done for you, the team, Herb, the car, the furnace and the pipes. Know you are appreciated!

    ahh ...yep stress is not a good thing. At this moment with all that is going on you are doing good to not be living on your favorite treats . Ya hiding in the corner with a big bowl of ice cream with sprinkles and syrup!..
    Hoping the car is not a too expensive fix. Back when you could fix this car by taking parts from that car..anymore with sensors and all the stuff..they change the design every 6 months so even cars made in the same year are not the same at all. Fingers and toes crossed for not a big repair bill for you!!
    Yeah the weather has been that same type of crazy here. We had 3 days of 50 to 60 degrees,,today ,,the wind roared in the clouds flew over and the temp dropped to burn your skin cold. Crazy!!
    Take care and hang in there!! always here for ya!!
