So, I've checked in here from time to time to see what everyone is doing... but haven't posted because... well, I've been slacking - completely. No exercise, eating whatever... feeling HORRIBLE! I've had a lot of excuses this year - including a lot of stress for several months. But I have started a new job (and am loving it), DH has finished his final paper (yea!), kids are healthy, family is good... no excuses left... except that I am still there. You know that place. Where you are disgusted with yourself for having gained weight but still not motivated enough to get off the couch... or out of bed. Yeah, I'm there. Not happy with myself, but not motivated to DO anything about it. So here I am.
BUT, I did get in over 5000 steps daily this weekend (I was down to hitting maybe 3K)... and got the house cleaned and am feeling pretty good. So I got up this morning and make a beautiful salad for lunch... and went for a walk in the sunshine on break. Maybe, just maybe I'm moving in the right direction.

Okay, first, this has NOTHING to do with eating or exercise. It does, however, entail my personal stress level (which definitely affects eating and exercise!).
You may (or may not) recall that my program is being downsized... and I've been really up in the air on what that fully meant for me... and where I would land (hopefully, like a cat, on my feet). Fortunately, yesterday, I was offered a position I applied for and really wanted. So, my future is assured now - and it's even within my Department, though vastly different than my current position. While there is, naturally, unknowns still... at least the major unknown and the one that was really causing me stress is now resolved.
On to bigger and better (or at least different) things!

Well, I got back on the wagon last week - started eating all my fruits and veggies and cutting down on sugar. Was feeling pretty good. Then I got on the scale Monday morning... and I was UP 3 pounds - REALLY?!?!?!?
So, yesterday was frustration... serious frustration. I was able to stay on track part of the day... then went home to help DH pick up a chicken coop we bought from a friend (and it came with one chicken), so we moved and dug the coop in and moved Martha chicken into her new location and then I was starving... and ate at least a cup of ice cream (probably more like 1.5)... and leftover Thai food... and then we went out to dinner and dessert
Anyway, I am trying very much to not weigh every day like I used to - and that was no problem this morning! However, TOM made an appearance last night which really explains a lot (yes, I am in my 30's and still don't think about when this will happen... I keep saying some day I will expect it ).
Anyway, aside from the eating etc, yesterday was a VERY exciting day at our house. The kids have been begging for chickens and they just adore Martha! My 5 year old woke up and the first words out of her mouth this morning were "can I go see Martha?" Now we just need to get her a couple of friends...
