Yes, I’m still alive. We are coming up on the big deadline for the magazine, and between that work and my son’s Legion baseball schedule, I am totally overwhelmed, with no time to blog. My exercise has been a little lacking of late, too. But sometimes you just have to pick sleep over movement. So this week was nothing stellar in terms of cardio, but I still ate well, and I made huge progress on deadlines, which means I should have smooth sailing later. Well, let’s all pray for that, at least. I’ve never worked on any publication that didn’t have a nasty last-minute problem rear its ugly head just when you thought you could safely exhale.
Anyway, I’m still kickin’, from my desk chair. I’ve not lost any more weight, but I’ve not gained either. I may fluctuate 1 to 1 1/2 pounds on certain days – which I don’t include on my little weight loss ticker over on the left side bar, by the way – but I can usually chalk that up to salty food or zero exercise. The fact that I’m not packing it back on is a huge victory if you ask me. I know my body, and in the past, I would’ve been up 5 pounds by now, maybe more.
This week has been extremely hectic, but I’m hoping that next week will be better. I tend to hold onto my weight during stressful times, and this certainly qualifies. I’m so close to hitting that 20 pound mark for the year, and really want to get there. I know it’s close. What I need right now is a little push. And some time. And a nap.
