The scale made me cry...

Happy happy HAPPY tears!  Even with everyone's favorite aunt here for a visit. Even with carbs galore.  Even with not hitting the bike for a good bit of time. I did it. I finally freaking did it!!!

In 20 minutes ...

my body will feel like it's time for me to be getting ready to go home and crash. Alas, it'll only be 3am and I'll have 4 more hours of being stuck here thanks to yet another 12 hour shift. (It's my own fault -- I agreed to do it out of desperation for the extra $.) It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that the new girl is also here and putting a major kink in my regular routine of marathon watching stuff. I may just go into one of our vacant rooms and do so there. Or sleep. I could actually do that tonight since I've been given the big okay by TPTB to do so if needed. Add the uterus being stupid to the mix and I'm just all sorts of meh. It happens. Pretty much every month. And then even when I do finally get home I won't get to go to bed because of the whole "get the kid on the bus" thing and then I have to walk up to the bank to make a deposit of some cash so I can pay my homeowner's insurance before it becomes later than it already is. Yeah .... definitely going to go collapse for a bit soon ....

Then and now

I meant to post this yesterday but my last lazy Sunday was spent, well, being lazy. Starting this coming Sunday I'll be working Sunday-Thursday. Hooray for a full 40 hour paycheck!!! But, at the same time, I'm going to miss my long weekends.

Anyway, last week's goals & how I faired:
Blog: 3 times for each -- Pulled it off here ... killed the other blog. Well, not completely ... but in essence I'm done with it.
Book: Finish Heart of Evil - 30%+ Decaffeinated Corpse -- Nailed it! Currently 15% into The Christie Caper by Carolyn G Hart
Diet: Ignore the macros but not the the calories; 500+ daily deficit -- I sorta slacked on tracking but I'm guessing I did okay. Ended the week at 200.4 as of Sunday morning's weigh-in! I WILL get under 200 again. Some day.
Fitness: 200+ minutes -- Eh. Not quite. Only pulled off 170. That last half an hour could have easily been accomplished but just wasn't.

This week's goals -- pretty much the same:
Blog: 3 times
Book: Finish The Christie Caper (it's a lengthy one -- might take the whole week)
Diet: TRACK (starting Tuesday since Sunday and Monday are already shot) -- but still not stress about the macros
Fitness: 200+ minutes (try try again, right?)

I would SO love to see a number starting with a "1" when I get on the scale Sunday morning. A lack of money is going to mean a lack of being able to get groceries for the next couple of weeks, though, so it'll be a lot of carbs already on-hand, probably. The crazy thing? Since I've stopped stressing about the stupid lunch blog and the stupid macros I haven't been bothered by my carb intake. I even ate PopTarts with my darling boy without feeling like I was going to die afterwards! (They were the seasonal Pumpkin Pie kind ... like I could possibly have passed those up!)

Crazy ...

I said that I would probably finish the book that I had wanted to get 30+% done by Sunday, right? That WAS just last night that I said it, wasn't it?

I finished it on the bus ride in to work.

I didn't think to bring my next book with me.

I'm caught up on all of the shows I normally watch without Tom.

Facebook games are making my brain bleed.

I have 3+ hours left to my shift.

Guess it's time to go hit up Netflix!

Mid-week update

Sunday I declared the following goals for the week:
   Blog: 3 times for each
   Book: Finish Heart of Evil - 30%+ Decaffeinated Corpse
   Diet: Ignore the macros but not the the calories; 500+ daily deficit
   Fitness: 200+ minutes

Mid-week update looks like this:
   Blog: nailing it here ... not going to happen for the lunch blog. Quite frankly, I just don't care.
   Book: Finished Heart of Evil that night and surpassed the 30% for Decaffeinated Corpse this evening! It may very well be done by Sunday!
   Diet: Going GREAT! I'm eating pretty much what I want and when I want it -- making sure that deficit stays where it should. Started the week at 203.8 ... this morning (well, Wednesday) was back to 200.8 :)
   Fitness: I'm currently at 115 minutes for the week -- largely thanks to being on dog-watching duty at work for a while the past two nights. Left on my own the number would be a lot lower thanks to the stupid knee/weather issue.

The new girl at work is, so far, working out pretty well I think. I only have her for an hour each night right now and tonight was the first time we did any actual training (last night we talked too much) ... but I think it'll work out.

Not much else going on. I'm debating what to do about the lunch blog indifference. I wish there was some way to instantly post to blogger from Instagram. That one extra step of actually having to blog is what I really don't care about. Of course, I do lots more than just lunches on IG and those would autopost, too. Meh. I think I'll just say screw it and if anyone wants to see the random lunches I bother taking pictures of in the future they can bloody hell follow me on IG or Twitter. I'll still be making the lunches because John loves them and I love making them ... but the whole blogging thing is becoming more of a chore than a pleasure... and it can suck it (and I just took a break from writing this to go tell it so).

Ahhhh. 

I feel better already!

Now, on to leveling up John's Sims FreePlay and watching whatever on my iPad :)
