Oh my word, y’all, I just don’t want to deal with this week.

I don’t know what to say because I’m just so exhausted right now. I’ve had a terrible time getting on a healthy sleep schedule and I’m sure that’s impacting oh, everything, in my life right now.

But everyone gets tired so I know you’re not here to hear about that. Let’s talk weight loss. Or lack thereof, in my case.

it wasn't even hard

Yeah, I’ve had some good moments this week. I thought, honestly, that I was doing better this week than I did last week. Looking at my FitBit and MyFitnessPal records though, that’s just not the case. I wasn’t as active the whole week which means those days when I had a few (hundred) extra calories weren’t okay. And yes, I missed calorie tracking some days so while I “felt” like I was staying within my goal there’s just no way to know.


Ultimately that leaves me with another week of not losing any weight. That’s not the 5 pounds I thought I could expect for this month, nor is it even close to the 8 pound “stretch” goal I had in mind. We’re looking at an overall loss of 2.5 pounds this month. Ouch.

I guess the only thing I can do at this point is just keep going. I’m frustrated, but I’m ready to move on.

Latte Appreciation Post

August 5, 2014

It’s been a while since we last saw our hero – thought you all might want to know he’s being awesome as always. In this picture he’s gotten a hunk of Milkbone that’s way too big for him and refusing to give it up so we can break it into smaller pieces for him. Sigh. And […]

Weekly Check In: July Overall

July 31, 2014

This week. I just. Sigh. I started one of my long posts this morning and then decided today let’s just stick to the facts and skip the navel gazing. I lost one pound over the last two weeks. Yes, that’s progress in the right direction. Painfully slow progress. But that brings my total for July […]

Pinterest in Real Life: The Subway Sign Redux

July 29, 2014

I made my first Subway sign back in December and it was, decidedly, one of the most tedious projects I’ve ever taken on.  Cutting out all the letters? Ugh. That explains why it took me almost an entire year to finish my second one. But my friend Jess saw my first sign and had a […]
