I know it's been a while since i posted, but i've been so busy.
spent all my free time last week packing up all my worldly belongings for Saturday's moving day. best idea i think i've ever had was having my dad hire four of his warehouse guys to come and do the heavy lifting. they got the job done!
by sunday we're moved the rest of it to my parents' house where i am once again living until the new house is ready at the end of the year. i have all the stuff i need in my old bedroom in a tiny closet with a tiny dresser so now need to really sort through all my clothes again to see what no longer fits and clear it out.
on that note... discovered a pair of size 16 avenue black jeans in my closet today.... wore them to work, but really.... they're ready for the too big pile! though i just don't feel like i'm ready for 14's.... ah well.
my mom was away this weekend and i ended up eating out with dad quite a bit... he's thoroughly amused and fascinated by my new eating habits. saturday lunch time we went to the yacht club for lunch and both ended up having the stewed conch from the buffet. i had a small spoon of grits, a bit of hte conch and a piece of johnny cake. ended up eating maybe a third of what was in the bowl and two bites of the bread.... and was full. so i asked the waiter for a to-go container. he was so concerned that i really hadn't taken much from the buffet that he went and filled the container about halfway before brining it to me to put my leftovers in. let's just say i'm still eating stewed conch for breakfast.
i am eating tiny portions, not snacking and making really good choices. i'm getting in walking at least every other day. still the weight isn't falling off of me. i am surprised that it's so slow, but not bothered. i know i'm going to get there and stay there. i know i somehow need to up my water in take again. still not getting in enough and it doesn't help that it's cooled down a bit and is freezing in my office so i'm not as thirsty.
left work a half hour earlier today so i could make it home before dark and get a walk in. ended up taking my parents' 85lb boxer for a half hour walk. no. scratch that. he took me. it was great because i was forced to walk a lot faster than i would on my own. tomorrow night is maddy's turn. she's smaller, but not quite as good on a leash so should be interesting!
ok. i'm done rambling.
