I think I may be addicted to my fitbit after just two days….I am constantly checking to see where I am…I took the stairs at all of my appointments today. Since I wasn’t working with kiddos today and spent most of my at home with dialated eyes from the eye doc by 4 I knew I was going to have to work hard to meet my 10,000 step goal. I walked up the street to bunco tonight….did an up and back in the culdisac on my way home…took the dog to potty and turned out all the lights then I still had over 1500 steps left so i walked laps on our mini track….I mean the circle that consists of living room, music room, dining room and kitchen in this monstrosity we are renting…and then lugged donation bags from the top floor to the main floor to be put in the truck and dropped off tomorrow until I met my goal at 10:15 pm! It was so much harder at home once it warms up and my asthma won’t flair so much I can walk w cheerio (our dog) again!

My nephew is in surgery right now. I know what it is like to be the mom in this situation. …being the auntie is hard because I feel like I can’t cry

Makes me wonder about reincarnation
this is seriously so beautiful
All these lovely ladies weigh 154lbs. We all carry weight differently, don’t live your life by an outdated chart. Find a number that looks and feels good.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK. WEIGHT COMES IN DIFFERENT SHAPES AND SIZES.
This is actually a really lovely artistic reference as well. Also HOLY SHIT NEW REBLOG SYSTEM??? dang.
It has been a good week…interestingly enough all the “downs” have been good….my nephew’s creatine levels are way down and logically with a 2-4 percent kidney function it shouldn’t be so….it is amazingly awesome and he is doing well all around…thanks for keeping him in your thoughts.
I am down another 2.2 lbs for a total of 3.8 in two weeks. Not bad…I feel good. I dont feel hungry I am managing well and I think my kids are even eating better.
I bought myself a gift to help w this process from the money I have made knitting/crocheting which brought the $ in my checkbook down. If your interested check out my Etsy site: www.knotsknitsandloops.etsy.com
I bought the fitbit flex to help track activity and sleep. My husband says I totally need it for my sleep…this from the man who has barely slept since 2000…he lives off of very few hours of sleep most nights due to his PTSD. He’s working on it but it can be tough. I’m looking forward to what the flex has to say.. I was Interested in the force but they have recalled it due so some crazy rashes that people are getting…a lot of articles say it is due to a nickel allergy which I know I have so it is prob better considering most times my skin is too sensitive for most shampoo, laundry detergent. ..lotion even shea butter…..so the flex is prob the best call.
I have done a ton of research and really liked the jawbone UP24 but have an android phone…the flex is more like a watch but doesn’t have a display like the force which I thought was pretty cool but honestly basic is probably better too…lol. and I always have my phone for time checks because I need to be accessible for the boys.
Lets see…what other “downs” this week…we had a marathon of season 1 of house of cards on fri night/sat. We really liked it! Now looking into season 2.
We had two more snow days which I cant decide if it was a good or bad…our route is pretty much gone….im looking forward to getting that back.
Oh and my sil was “down” in the hospital having a baby…we got to welcome another nephew. He is very healthy and huge! 8 lbs 11oz!
So for a week of “downs” not too shabby!
The sad thing is you only learn from experience, so as much as someone can tell you things, you have to go out there and make your own mistakes in order to learn.
breakthecitysky thanks…we have spent msot of the afternoon discussing (my husband and I) and we talked with him tonight. It was a big deal that his other grades look so good…it shows us he is working…im thinking the ss class is an issue right now because he learned it last year….hoping. we had a huge talk about lying and trust.. he is 12 & 1/2 so he got it…we told him he is going to be wanting more freedom with his friends soon and if we cant trust him to tell us the truth abouth homework how can we trust him with friends or dating and then driving etc…he got that…he didnt think about it all being connected. We ended on a positive note letting him know all of his other grades looked really good compared to last quarter and we were impressed. Hopefully it sticks. ..Hopefully. kids are hard! There is always a new challenge you dont think about or didnt expect!
