I Hate The Scale Right Now

Okay, so last week I was sick for like four days.  Then Mother nature thought it would be fun to add to my misery, and then, to top it all of, I got a little irregular.  Now, my tooth is killing me.

Not a fun week at all. 

I did get on the scale after being sick for a few days, and I was down 52 pounds.  I finally got over that hump! 

I got on the scale this morning, and wanted to put my fist through the wall.  I seriously don't get it.  I haven't been eating much at all due to the puking and toothache, yet I gained weight.  Sure, it might be because it's that time of the month, but it's still so frustrating.

Hey! Hello! How Ya Doin'?

Me?  I'm doing just fine.  I've been swimming, and blogging, and watching scary movies with Kasi.  I have so many reviews coming up on "my kids" blog...I am loving the products I am getting to test out!  I finally feel like I made a name for myself in this blog world.  My blog is gaining sponsors, which is awesome, and I have some giveaways coming up, too.  Seriously, I am having a flippin' ball!

My weight?  Still the same.  Exactly the same.  No change whatsoever!  Now, this should be frustrating, but since I am not dieting, or exercising regularly, I have come to accept this.  I know when I start putting a little effort into it, I will start losing again.  I know this.  I just have to get to that point, and right now, I have too much going on, so I am going to be happy with simply maintaining right now.

Junior went to the clinic yesterday, and was put on the waiting list.  It could take up to six months for him to get in to see the doctor, which sucks, but what else can we do?

The kids go back to school a month from Friday...August 16.  I can not believe that Summer vacation is almost over.  As much as I am enjoying staying up late and sleeping in, I am looking forward to the routine we will be in once they go back. 

I have cracked on the whole water thing.  I know, I know.  I did so good for a while, and then I had a diet sprite, and that was it.  But, I have been doing the wii, and loving it! 

I guess that's about it.  I have some work to do over on the other blog, so I need to get my big ole butt in gear...

We Went To Therapy

I was pretty excited to see what our therapists would say this week about our last session, since it was with the kids.  Turns out, we didn't really get to talk much about it.  One of them did say that if she had to sum up our family with one word, it would be funny.  (are you really surprised?)  She also said that Brandi is most definitely a mommy's girl, and Kasi is more of a daddy's girl.  She didn't know which Ryan preferred, because he picked on both of us evenly. 

We spent most of the session talking about things I am not comfortable sharing here, mostly because it concerns Junior.  I mean, these are his therapy sessions, and there are some things that he doesn't want me to share.  I'm just going to say that talking about it helped, and we are taking steps in the right direction.  Sounds kind of mysterious, doesn't it?

We also discussed going every week again for a little while, so we might go back next Tuesday.  It really all depends on if Junior can get a doctor's appointment before then, otherwise he needs to go to the clinic Tuesday, which means no therapy.  He is finally going to go have another sleep study done so they can recalibrate his bi-pap machine, because he hasn't been sleeping well.  We are hoping the clinic will send him, and Tuesdays are the only time you can go in and talk to the receptionist about getting an appointment, and it usually means waiting around for an hour or two.  So, if we don't hear from them before Tuesday, that's where Junior will be.  Our therapist is sending them a referral, so we are hoping they will call before then.

Am I rambling a little?  Sorry.

You know I do that from time to time.

Motivation Monday ~ Week 2'd I do last week....
  • on a positive note, I gave up soda, for the most part.  When I am at home, instead of drinking soda, I have been drinking water.  Lots and lots and lots of water.  I didn't buy a 2 liter of soda all week.  Now, I did have a soda if we stopped for a drink while out and about, which is okay, because it calms the cravings.
  • yesterday was the 4th, which means lots of food and swimming.  I was hoping the swimming would work of all the food, but not so much.  There was no change in my weight at all last week...which sucks...but it's better than showing a gain.  
  • I didn't do the wii at all.
 What are my goals for the coming week:
  • I have got to find a way to get this weight off.  Seriously.  I don't want to "diet", because for me, that is always the beginning of the end. 
  • I rearranged the furniture in my living room this morning, making it more wii friendly.  That means I am going to be doing that this week...starting tonight.
  • I am going to continue drinking water, which gets easier every day.
Thanks to Jeannette for hosting Motivation Monday...head over to her blog Hippo With A Headband if you want to join in, too.

    Am I Still Motivated Today?

    The only thing I am doing right this week is drinking water.

    Lots and lots of water.

    The good thing is that I have only had two sodas since Monday, and both were on the way to my mom's house, and I didn't finish either one.  I am actually wanting the water.

    Weird, I know.

    The only downside is that it goes right through me.  I got up about six times last night was crazy!

    As far as the other two goals for this week...yeah, I'm not holding my breath.
