9 days until we move!

Hello Gang!

I feel good today; the sun is peeking out for the first time in a long time it feels like, and it's wonderful to see it's shining face! I stepped on the scale today and it read 167, which would be one pound up. But I'm not worried at all, since I had some salt last night and expect my period today. Also, the scale took a few tries to even turn on, so I'm thinking new batteries are in order.

I can't believe it's only 9 days until we move! So crazy. I'm excited, though, and ready to just be moved into the new place. I have lots of help with the kids next week, which is super because then I can pack with a vengeance. ;-)

I was thinking this morning that lately I've said several times that exercise/diet is not the most important thing in my life, that I don't have hours to devote to it, it's not my main priority. And this is true for me, but it occurred to me that perhaps that came across in a negative way for those of you who DO devote time out of your day for those things. I hope that's not the case, because in the future when things settle down I really hope to get into a routine that includes exercise. It's just that right now it's too much. So if that came across in a negative way to any of you exercisers, I'm sorry!

I tried putting strawberries in my protein shake, a la Sunshine Mama, but didn't really enjoy it. Which is weird, because there aren't many things better than chocolate and strawberries! :-P Anyway, I'll just stick to my normal stuff for now.

I have a babysitter today- she is a WONDERFUL girl and I'm so thankful for her help. So I'm going over to my mom's to help organize her basement. She has HUNDREDS of movies that we are going to sort through and sell. I'm excited, because I think I'll be bringing some home to take with us when we move. She mostly has kid type movies. Plus, I just like to hang with my mom and in 9 days that won't be possible. WAAAHHHHH!!

Well, I better get my booty in gear. I've got lots to do and want to get crackalackin while I have the energy.

Happy Hump Day! (ha ha ha, I crack up every time someone says that... you know, Wed is the middle of the week, so now we're over the "hump" and headed towards the weekend.) ;-D


  1. I knew just what you meant about diet/exercise not being the most important thing in life. Yeah losing this weight is important to me and I've felt a lot better since I stopped overeating and started working in some exercise, but I never want that stuff to become the focus of my life.

  2. It sounds like you are maintaining well over this transition time, which is really losing in my books. During a stressful time, most give themselves permission to stray and pounds come on. You haven't and you are not gaining. So, really, you are losing. At least that's my math!

  3. P.S. How's Jen? Please tell her that I say hello and think of her often! I hope her pregnancy is going well.
