That's me all bundled up for my walk in the 45 degree weather. Please do not hate me. You can throw it all back in my face this summer when it's 120 degrees.

Another day another post. I have posted everyday this week. Good for me. Actually I am BORED. I have lost both my old people and now after work all I have is time. I did go on a nice bike ride yesterday after work. So what does Dana do when she's bored. Well she eats of course! GRRR. Hey, at least I am upping my exercise. I am in awe of people that go to the gym and work out for hours. I just don't have it in me. Maybe one day, but for now I am happy with my little routine.

I got on the scales this morning for shits and giggles and found an eight after the one. It's not official, but it does make me feel good. The last time I weighed in the 180's I was in rehab at the Salvation Army. That was in the late 90's. I wasn't even a really skinny tweeker....just my luck. It still took me another 3-4 years to change my life. Yes, I am STUBBORN and prideful.

I told myself if I lost the weight I would not complain about loose skin. Well I am not complaining, but I am sagging. It's like my skin is "puckering". It's just weird. Even the skin on my forearms. Oh well, if that's all I can think of to bitch about today, well then my life is pretty good.

I think I will call my friend and meet at the bird park and go for a walk after work. I am going to take the Gsons to the drive in again tomorrow night then another sleep over. I might as well do it while I am in the mood and the weather is nice. Anyway, that's the plan. It's all up for

My son is getting his other 2 wisdom teeth out today. I will be so glad. They have really been bothering him. It sucks to see your kid in pain. He kind of looks like a convict as of late. His sister accidentally (that's her side of the cut his hair too short, then off comes all the hair. I told his boss ( I work at the same school he does ) to make him shave his beard. Told him to tell my kid that it was in the dress code or some stupid thing. He just looked too creepy. Way to control and manipulate your kid, Dana. Oh well. He does look much better.

I am not sleeping well. It's because with boredom and the eating, I am now falling asleep at 6 pm and then I am up at 3 am. Again, I need to stay busy. I am not going to beat myself up too much. I am getting back to a normal here at work this week. Before the break I was at a dead run all day. cause I was taking care of Mr. 92. I need another old person. It will happen. When I don't sleep well I am more apt to believe what TCB tells me. So I am NOT going to be my own worse enemy today. Intention set!

Keep the mood and the food real..........don't believe half of what your head tells ya.


  1. I just got back from driving my BF to the train and its 42 out there! BURRRRRRR Yes us west coast peeps are lucky to be in the 40's lol :) Great job on getting out for your walk! I get the bored munchies too- but I need to get back to making jewelry- that keeps my hands busy! :) Have a great day!!!

  2. If i listened to what my head told me i'd eat till i burst!

  3. I dream of the 180's. Haven't been there since 1992. I am determined to see it in 2010 though! And me, I am totally going to frequently bitch and whine about the loose skin.

  4. Congrats on the 180s!! WOO HOO!!
    The loose skin makes me wish I could have plastic surgery. But I'm poor and I'm a wimp!

  5. Way to go on the 180's. That's always the toughest time when the scale wants to bounce around the 10 lb marks. Have a good time with the kids tonight. Hope a new person comes along soon I know there are plenty out there that could use your help.

  6. Yay for the 180's!

    Laughing at you going to bed at 6pm - no wonder you are up so early! Hope you can find something to keep you busy - what about doing some knitting or crafts in the evening? Of course I am one to talk as I do not know how to knit, but it looks like fun!

  7. The 180's...!!! ....Wow, girl you're rockin' it!!

  8. Geez - for someone who's bored you sure have a lot going on! And the 180's? I'm in awe!

  9. I believe that the little routines are better. We are more likely to stick to it if we don't go overboard. By the way Virgil is the first name of detective flowers, and I can't wait for the book to come out.

  10. I laughed at the thing about your son's hair.

  11. lol - a skinny tweeker!
    And thumbs up on the loss!


Tell me what you think!
