Unfortunately, that means getting looks from people when I choose to have a piece of cake and they think I should pass. That means getting back on the hamster wheel every Monday morning after a weekend of good eats and drinks. That may mean spending the rest of my life within a five pound range of where I am now...if I'm fortunate.
Whatever. I'm okay with that.
My life is so fun and awesome right now. I have a lot of responsibilities and I also have a lot of blessings. If it means every Monday is going to be Groundhog Day in order to have 4 great "diet days" in order to enjoy the weekends, so be it. I think maybe this might be coming off as defensive, but I want you to realize that is not how I mean it. It is freeing. I'm not "giving up" or "letting go", quite the opposite. I'm doing what I need to do to live!
I had a super fun week and weekend last week even though I didn't check in here. I had an issue with the allergic reaction and I'm still fighting that a bit. I may have to go get more tests. Stay tuned.
Anyway, last week...Tuesday we went to go see the Stars play and sat 2 rows from the ice. It was awesome.
One thing I have been trying to do since moving into my new place is to have fresh flowers around. I love them and they always make me happy. Here is this week's version:
Also this weekend, I spent some time going through old pictures. Here is precisely why I'm okay fighting the same 5 pounds for the rest of my life and why I won't stop.
Lastly, I will leave you with this funny that everyone fighting this battle can relate to...
