Heaven knows we need it!

well…

I ain’t got nothing.  A big, fat nothing burger.  Work is busy, I come home, do things, I go to bed.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

But I didn’t want you to think anything was wrong, so I’m posting.  Just not inspired to post at the moment.  No real reason why.  Just is.

weekend review

Saturday, we went to my middle grandson’s basketball game, they came from behind to win, so it was fun to watch.  But frankly, I can’t wait for Little League (baseball) season to start.  Much fun, especially the youngest who will still be in T-Ball.  SO much fun!

We went to Panera Bread beforehand for lunch; I had their great half chicken Caesar salad, with a half baguette.

Watched the Super Bowl yesterday; pleasantly surprised with the outcome.  All I had to eat was half of a Portillo’s chopped salad, and a couple of onion rings.  All I drank was decaf iced coffee and water.  Least I’ve eaten or drank for a Super Bowl EVER.  LOL

That’s all I’ve got!

Hope you had a great weekend!

weight loss update: Day 15

First, this will be the last time I give a ‘Day x’ nomer to all of this.  It’s just I’m a day over 2 weeks in, so I thought I’d note that.  I’ll be weighing Saturday mornings and updating at that time from now on  (here.)

I’m down 8.0 lbs.  Not too shabby!  I’m still 100% chocolate and dessert free.  Very low sugar.  I was able to eat 2 salads, one with romaine, one with baby spinach leaves as their base, and not suffer any UC (ulcerative colitis) effects, so that is a MAJOR great thing!  The goal is still 2 lbs. loss per week.  I’ve been plagued by equilibrium problems this week, (so bad that hubby had to drive me to/from work 2 days)…so exercising is off the table, but I’m still planning to start back up (slowly) within the next day or two, if the symptoms subside.  I get this a couple of times a year, no biggie.  Overall, already my jeans are feeling a little looser, tops fit better, and I’m feeling much better about myself.  No real temptations I couldn’t easily ignore, and so things are going as good on the weight loss front as I could hope for.  🙂

Glad you guys so resoundingly loved the puppy and bunny posts.  I think I’m going to pop them on my menu bar as a quick way to move away from any potential political angst or any other stress.  🙂  There will be more posts like that to come.  I’m already collecting pictures.  LOL

Weather-wise, it’s been amazing, although we know this portends another drought starting.  It’s been 75-80 for over a week now, and no end in sight.  Literally.  Here’s the forecast for my city for the next two weeks:

Have a great weekend!!

ETA:  since I’ve already been asked once, and I realize I shouldn’t expounded, here is what usually causes this equilibrium issues for me:  usually it’s from bending over too fast either to pat or pick up my chihuahua, although some times it’s from gardening. In the past, it’s also been from losing enough weight that I can slightly decrease my bp medication dosage. I don’t think 7-8 lbs. is quite enough, but if this doesn’t depart soon, I might start slivering one dose for a few days to see if that helps. 🙂

My therapy

I’m hearing all over the interwebz late yesterday-today that the political shit is about to REALLY hit the fan.  I’m guessing the flack from the fake memo likely being released, as well as probably the IC (‘intelligence community’) fighting back against 45’s attempts to stain them all.  REAL UGLY REAL FAST is what I’m hearing.

So my antidote?
