I know I know

I've been MIA for a while. The pups were in a DockDog competition a couple weeks ago. The only difference with this competition is that the club we belong was in charge of putting on the event. Todd and I were exhausted by the time we got home. I think we both were lucky to get home in one piece. I know I caught myself falling asleep a couple times as we drove home from Worcester, MA.

Last week, I managed to stay the same. -18.6. I was really hoping to get closer to that -20 but I've come to realize staying the same is just as successful as a loss.

This week was so not normal. The family got together and celebrated my aunt's, cousin's and my birthday. Of course there was cannoli cake (which I did split with Todd so I didn't feel as guilty). I ended up losing -0.4. So I've lost -19 pounds. I guess I'm just expecting more out of myself.

I can't wait for the warmer weather. I can get the dogs back to the park where they get to run and I'll walk for at least an hour. I'm beginning to think "zumbaing" for 45 minutes a day isn't going to cut it.

I made an appointment for an OB/GYN at UCONN in April. I cannot wait because it seems like all that I hear and see is someone is having or had a baby. Don't get me wrong I'm happy for everyone I just wish I could share in the excitement.

I think I could float.....

I've been trying really hard to get all my water in these past few days. I've been averaging 36-48 ounces. Definitely not enough but I still feel like I could float away. It seems like I spend 1/2 my day running to the restroom with all the water I'm drinking. Thanks to Annie from Annie's Weighs and I have been keeping tabs on each other with our water.

I have to catch up on my exercise too. Friday was my day off from exercise. Saturday, I was hoping to squeeze it as Todd and I were preparing for my father in-laws retirement party. We did all the prepping and by the time we were done I was exhausted and just didn't have the energy. The party was a success on Sunday. It was great to see all the family and friends. The only bad thing on Sunday was I didn't exercise again.

Monday, Tuesday and today I "Zumba'd". I also spent 90 minutes today shoveling the driveway. CT has been getting slammed every couple of days. I don't know where we're going to continue to put the snow but my arms and shoulders are getting a great workout having to lift it practically above my head. (Yes, that is how tall some of the snow piles are.)

Weigh in is tomorrow evening. Cross you fingers for me because I just have this feeling I gained this week.
