Guys, I totally suck. I'm sorry I disappeared this weekend
I find I've been sleeping way later than normal on the weekends, and I think it's a symptom of my stress. I'm feeling really calm this morning, though, so I'm hoping it's a good sign that I've finally accepted that I just need to wait and focus on my life right now, and the future will be what it will be. I hope, anyway. I still get nervous checking my e-mail, but it passes.
Another reason for my disappearing is that BF gets a little clingy on the weekends. I think he misses me during the week when he's stuck bumming around the house or going on short errands rather than working, so when I'm home, he sort of sticks to me like glue. I don't like him looking over my shoulder if I post here, and that's another issue I need to speak with him about. It should be an easy conversation, I'm always just bad at initiating talking about things I need. Bah.
Also, I beg and plead with you all -- KICK MY BUTT
this week if I don't exercise. I am being so lazy and full of excuses that I'm a little ashamed of myself. The worst thing is, I'm losing! (158.9 for me this morning, a new low) so I'm not even getting the nudge from a scale from being stuck, haha! I'm bolding that goal, as it's my number one must-do goal this week.
Also. I'm less than ten lbs. from a healthy BMI. Holy crap.
-- Congrats on the 4.2 lbs., woooohoooo!!!!
-- You're so right, the scale isn't the only measurement to go by. Clothes fitting better is EVEN MORE rewarding than the number for me, so go on and rock that skirt!
