3 weeks have gone by...

Wow, that's a lot of time. Let me see, I wasn't feeling well, weighed myself at 285, then the following week was AF (aunt flo to all those who don't speak web) and I was 290, and then last week was crazy with Kati here and I was back to about 288-289. It's nice to know that while I retain water with AF, once she's gone (yep, AF is a SHE all the way) the weight goes back to normal.

Haven't had sword practice in 3 weeks either. Cancelled for weather, then Kati was here and were super busy that day (family pics in the am then dinner with my mom that afternoon/evening) and then once again cancel for the rain. I'm hoping that in the next couple of days (probably Wed considering tomorrow is supposed to be mid 40's and rainy) get out and do some staff work. Planning on yoga tonight.

I've also been doing more housework, deep cleaned the office and dining room this weekend. The living room is getting done next. I have more work to do with the office, but it is MUCH better than it was! The kids go to SIL's again on the 15th. Jason and I had planned on taking a couple of days to really clean, I'm hoping that I'll have enough done before then so we don't have to spend both days doing the cleaning.

Trying to remember breakfast, even if it's just grabbing a Slim Fast shortly after I wake up. It seems that my days are more successful when I have something first thing like that. I got into a lazy pattern of doing frozen meals, and I am trying to get back out of that. Home made frozen is OK, store bought not so much. At least I know exactly what I put into the home made ones.

I have some sewing to do. I need to get working on my renn garb. I finally narrowed down my "lineage" so I can go from there.

Been doing all right with the ChaCha. I try to do it at night after the kids go to bed. I'm doing MyLot pretty frequently too. Posting there is like posting on message boards. I am close to "grounding" myself from facebook, it's just so distracting! Damn games! I set goals of work for 15 minutes and then I can facebook for 15 minutes. It works sometimes, which is better than never I guess. Last year with ChaCha I earned less than $50! That is ridiculous. I need to get on the ball with that one.

Will be going shopping on Sunday to stock up again, I'll be making sure to get stuff for more salads. They are really filling and pretty good for me, I'd like to be able to stay in that habit. We are also ordering from Angel Food Ministries to stock our freezer later this month. Affordable, variety, and the quality is pretty damn good. Jason and I said that once we got a new freezer for the basement we'd start doing that again, so I'm going back to doing it this month. Anything to help us stay stocked up AND eating at home as much as possible.

I suppose that is all for now. I'll update with a new weigh in on Thursday. Have a good week everyone.
