busy days

So the Baby Mac was in the shop - no charge to fix her!
The power adapter wouldn't do its thing. As in - light up...
On the way home from the Mac Store
Trucky had a problem, too... had to go to the shop!
Prolly separation anxiety... as we have never been apart for long.
She goes back in tomorrow for a fix.

The Easter Dog came to see me...

Went to the gym a lot, and still walk at least once a day....
Most days, twice a day.

I'm not a stress eater "per se"...
I'm just an eater.
So I am right on track with my food.
Weight is the same - which is maddening!
I've come to accept that "Bodies are gonna do
What bodies are gonna do..." and it will change
when it's ready....In the mean while I just need to stay on plan
And "do the right things!"

A Nurse Friend (my age) died...
And I went to her Funeral. It's hard even when you know it's coming.
And of course, all my "dress up" clothes are miles too big.

Lots of rain...
Lots of quiet times with no computer and no transportation...
(I had both - just "marginalized" versions - this week!)
Thanks for everyone who kept checking on me.
Onward and downward!


  1. Yikes, that is a lot for one week. Hope you have clear skies ahead :)

  2. A hard week for sure! Now time to take care of you

  3. What a week... Not for the weak! Glad you are so strong.... Hey, what was on those eggs?

  4. Hmmmmm your weight is the same but I see that photo up there and I think that you look leaner. Something is changing!

  5. Hang in there Miss, hopefully this week will be better!

  6. I had that conversation with my husband just last night. I'm convinced I've got problems with my thyroid, but my physical isn't until mid-May, so until then, I'm just cruising. Gonna re-read The Paleo Dieter's Missing Link, reset my attitude, find my Paleo sweet-spot, and try not to pay attention to the scale.
    I'd also recommend some revisiting (not revisionist) of your history. Just babbling last night, it came out that I'm down 30 pounds in 2 years. But, one of those years was nightmare female cycles - almost needing transfusions - and another was disabled, crippled by pain, etc. Honestly - the fact that I didn't put 90 pounds+ BACK on is amazing. That I was still able to drop 30 is like super-human. Perspective.
    There's all kinds of things that could be going on internally that we aren't aware of & have no power over. You are right, though - keep doing the right things & you'll make progress. Just concentrate on rebuilding and building strength, flexibility, etc.
    You are kicking @ss and taking names. LOVE YOU!!

  7. When it rains it pours, right?

    So sorry to hear about your friend. It's never easy.

    Now go shopping for some clothes! LOL

  8. So much going on... First I'm sorry for your loss. It's always hard and there really are no words...

    Glad the Mac is back. I know what it's like to be computer-less and it's not fun!

    And now the truck. I yiyi. Enough already. Hope it's an easy fix.

    Love your pink flower-- You look so pretty in that pic.

    Hang in there my friend and keep moving forward! xoxo jj

  9. Sorry for your loss. Now that is not the normal thing to say on a weight loss blog! But you know what I mean. :)

    As for the weight--at a certain point, the body has a mind of its own. Nope, not talking about our brains. I mean, our bodies have a kind of wisdom and logic and rightness, even when they don't do what *scientific research* says they *should* do. I like to think of it as a reminder that I'm not in control of the outcome. I do what I can (what I have the power to do) and the results take care of themselves. Weight be damned. I've decided: Feeling good--strong and capable, or, simply, at peace with myself & the world--is more important than a socially constructed number. Otherwise, I become my own oppressor. No thanks! Hugs to you!

  10. Such a hard week... but the unexpected loss of your friend must've been the deepest cut.

    That photo of the adorable Easter Dog put a smile on my face, with the up/down ear pose. Soooo cute!

  11. Sorry to hear you lost a friend.
    I hope trucky is easily fixed.
    Might be time for a new warddrobe!

  12. Ann, I'm sorry to hear that you've lost a friend. I understand. I know you do, as well. But, the miles too big part about your clothes? I'm working on it...it's really slow and it's not miles, more like inches, but hey, I'm going in the right direction....just more like a tortuous than a hare!

  13. Tough week for sure. Hang in there, girlfriend!


I would love to hear from you!
