Oh geez! That’s how I know I’m way too busy at work. I did not have time to post much at all! I haven’t talked about the weight loss either. I’m sorry for being such a slacker lately.
On the weight front, I lost some of the weight that I had gained when I took the week off. I’m still above that nice 206.6 though. Actually exactly one pound above that at 207.6! So I’m up early this Saturday so I can get out and get my exercise in. I’ve been pretty bad about that lately other than walking Little Man to school every morning. I hit 10,000 steps 5 times in the past week just doing that though. I’ve stayed within my calories for the most part (I did go over twice because I’m a Cookie Monster). I know my weakness, I choose to eat them sometimes anyway and there is nothing wrong with that IN MODERATION Jules – NOT 6 cookies from a bakery that you don’t really know how many calories are in them! I know I need to take own advise, yep, I’ve said that before! With that said, my goal this week is to get more exercise and eat 100 calories less than what it says my daily calorie goal is. Okay, that’s easy for me on weekends. It’s that I stress eat at work! Any thoughts or ideas to help stop myself from doing that, let me know!
Having EX here is still going well. He’s cleaning up after himself, helps with Little Man, and for some reason, he tells me what he’s doing if he’s not here. Okay, I admit, that’s a bit strange. When he text and told me he was hanging out at his friends house and would be late, I text him back and let him know that we’re not married and he doesn’t have to check in with me. I’m not going to ask where he’s been or who he was with, I don’t care enough to! But I secretly like it. Don’t tell! He’s been chatting with me and just hanging out which is another reason why I had to tell him that. He needs to be reminded because I’m not moving backward. If I wouldn’t go back to Engineer, I’m definitely not going back to EX!
My blood relatives have stop texting me all day every day. Thank God! Hopefully the newness is wearing down and we can all just chat sometimes, not every few hours. It still overwhelms me that I have this huge family! After I meet my brother tomorrow, I want to try and get in touch with the grandparents. We will see if that goes over well. Here’s a pic of my grandmother and great grandmother. That’s pretty cool to me that I get to see this!
I talked to my non blood sister late last night and got her caught up on everything. She and I are born 3 days apart and met in high school. We may not talk sometimes for a year, but can catch up and keep going like we just talked yesterday. I hope my blood relatives get to be like that to me, it doesn’t happen overnight though. Maybe eventually?
I am out of energy drinks so I’m having a hard time waking up this morning. Maybe I’ll walk the mile and a half to this convenience store that I know has them for my exercise this morning. It’s a lot farther than I’m used to but I’m sure I can do it! I also really want one. It’s yet another addiction! I tried a Mountain Dew already when I woke u but it doesn’t have the same caffeine so I’m having trouble getting moving (note I’m still blogging).
So I’m going to get up off my ass and put clothes on and go. I’ll have to post more later if I have time because I didn’t finish everything that’s happened but I’m typing all this on my phone so it’s a lot slower than if I was at my computer. I am going to my mechanic’s today for an oil change, gotta pay my Dad my monthly payment for the condo taxes, pay other bills, take care of Little Man, and I have to work today for 4 hours too. No fun! Have a great day! Hugs!
