30 lbs. Down

The good news first, I'm officially down 30 lbs from my beginning weight! I can tell too, because my pants are spending a lot of time getting yanked up these days. I am determined to use up my wardrobe before I shop though, it's silly, but dammit, I hate shopping. I especially hate shopping for pants! I have plenty to tide me over anyway. I was this size once before, many moons ago and apparently I don't get rid of clothes that don't fit. Although, I think I'm going to donate my stack of jeans that is ridiculously big before I find some excuse to grow back into them. I saw a friend last night I haven't seen in a while and she was just overflowing with praise and said she was so proud of me. It made me feel really good to hear that, I wasn't even sure that anyone (except my lovely blog readers and a few coworkers) had noticed I've lost weight.

I've been in a funk the past few days. Just feeling really down. I don't even have a good reason, I just feel anxious and mopey. I took my daughter on a trip to visit her college and that was super fun, but the minute I got back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Also, the a/c in our office is out, that isn't helping. We have some wall units and fans going, but it's not the same as central a/c. I don't know if you've noticed or not, but the midwest in experiencing a bit of a heat wave right now. The expected high today is 102. Yes, one hundred and two degrees! You can fry eggs on black top right now. That's actually a better projection that the one I heard this morning which was 108. UGH. The air is stagnant and feels like a heavy blanket. I'm going to enjoy the cool of a/c inside my bff's condo tonight and I'm only leaving if there's froyo on the agenda.

I really need to get some exercise in. I know that definitely affects my mood. It's not on the agenda tonight since I'll be out at A's, but tomorrow I'm hitting the gym for sure. Working out always improves my mood. I'd love to be outside, but if you'll note on the image above, it's going to be up to 104! HOLY CRAP! I'm pretty sure that kind of heat might actually cause me to melt into a puddle of sweat in mere seconds.

  1. Congrats on reaching a 30 pound loss. That's so awesome! I totally get you about clothes shopping. I also don't want to spend money if i am continuing to lose weight. Something that has happened with my weight loss is that even my feet have shrunk. I was going to order some shoes from zappos but I have no idea what size I am.

    Stay hydrated!
