Starting week three of our low carb eating and we both are on the losing side of the scale. My husband has lost 5 lbs and I am down 7 pounds.
Last week there was not a significant loss as I pretty much weighed the same. But, that is 7 less pounds I have to worry about so I will take it. Needless to say, I realize it took some time putting the weight on, so I will have to just be patient as it comes off.
My first goal is to lose 10% of my beginning weight. That would be approximately 25 lbs, so I only have 18 more pounds to go to reach that goal. I need to drink more water and stay better hydrated. I also added a probiotic to keep my gut healthy.
On today's list of things to do is to go get a new bathing suit. Our family is going to the beach for Mother's Day weekend ( which I am really looking forward to) and my other suits are just too small. I will start at Wal-Mart and see what I can find. Bathing suit shopping is one of my least favorite things to do, but I just have to suck it up.
I have been job hunting again. My resume is updated and I have been applying to part time ultrasound jobs and to jobs in the local schools. I like the hours of a school job and would be happy with the job as a teacher assistant. I volunteer in my grandson's school and walking into the building makes me so happy. I do hope that something comes along in that regard.
Having been put of the work force for over a year, I feel I am ready to get back into the daily grind. Emotionally, I feel so much better after my parents deaths. Looking back, I really was very angry at them but now, I have much more peace. Grief is definitely a process.
I need to get back into the eBay mode at least until something else comes along. There are a couple of mini trips I want to take this summer after we get back from the Alaska Cruise. I want to go back to Wisconsin to see Aunts and Uncles that are not getting any younger. And I want to go and visit my parents grave (which is in Wisconsin). I need to go just for final closure.
I have a cousin ( she is brilliantly eccentric ) that lives on the Vermont- New Hampshire border. She has invited me to come and stay with her for a visit. I have never been to that area do the country and if I don't go now, I may never get the opportunity to go again, especially if I am working. This particular cousin was CEO/CFO of Overstock.com in the early 2000's. She has done so much in her life, a truly fascinating individual.
Time to get the day started! Happy Monday and May the Fourth be with you!
