Making adjustments

Things, on the outside, appear stable.

My life, my weight, the dog, the house, money..... it all SEEMS to be holding steady, going well.

It is kind of strange, since I seem all a mess inside. But I will take what I can get.

Chris took me out to lunch at work today (he is traveling and I have been daily commuting out to his site so I see him for a few hours a day during the week lately, which is nice. It is not as nice as having him home in the evenings, but I will take what I can get). I ate a little more than usual for lunch, but I am paring down my dinner to make up for it.

TV night is tonight. I am going because I want to see people I love and that make me laugh. I am going to try not to drink or overeat because of the social-ness, though.

Got in a ton of activity today, four miles of walks and three hours of carting a 30 pound bucked up and down a hill. It was fine. I am fine. Still holding out in pretty good shape despite the lack of workouts. Just moving, moving, moving every day.... if you don't use it, you lose it, kind of deal :)

I am seeing a lot of crazy weight fluctuations in the blogs I read. Lots of gains. Some huge losses after those gains. Some people just plain gaining. The holidays are CRAZY. So I am hoping to start the New Year at 125, just holding steady. I would have loved to be at 120.... but I realize that that is going to take a LOT of work to get and maintain. It is work, I am quite simply, not willing to put in right now. But I AM willing to put in the effort to stay at my current weight.... I didn't gain over the last holiday season, I refuse to do it this year.

  1. There's a lot of validity in the saying, "fake it 'til you make it," Jeanette. Keeping up the appearance of normalcy brings a certain confidence and ability to make normalcy, eventually. There's a lot of weirdness going on all over the blogosphere these days...lots of MIAs, lots of confusion and whatnot.
