Hi There!

So I've been really busy... school has wrapped up for the kids and for me as well.  I finished my two classes for summer time... with A's!  And now I am off until fall semester starts in September.  Woo hoo!  So happy to have downtime.  Of course, I still have to work but I'm okay with that --- plus I will be able to focus more on work.  I applied for a new position, I've been with my company for 6 years and in my position for almost 5 years.  I'm ready for new learning opportunities.  ** crosses fingers **

As for weight wise in the past month... I hit another stall, which is fine.  A lot of people started asking if I lost even more weight, I guess even though the scale wasn't moving... my body was transforming.  And then bam! The scale started to move again - even if a little.  Add in that I've been sick with the stomach bug the last two days.  I'm all for some weight loss with the illnesses because it usually stays off.

Thats another thing... I feel like I've caught bugs and flu's and illnesses more in the past year than I have ever caught.  What is going on?  Its like my immune system is not up to par.  I hate that.

I also want to note about my measurements... I've been good overall about taking them at least monthly but stopped in February.  Just got busy.  So I took new measurements tonight and seeing them compared to when I first started... I'm like wow, even seeing them compared to February --- now makes sense why people thought I was losing weight, even though my scale wasn't reflecting it.  I like seeing numbers... this makes me feel better overall when the scale is not acting right.  Lol.

So summer time is here... it seems weird to say that.  I never expected this school year to go by so fast.  My youngest graduated kindergarten and is now officially a 1st grader.  And then my daughter graduated from 5th grade and will be entering middle school next year.  :(  Makes me feel sad and old at the same time.  Lol.

In other good news is my oldest... this has been the roughest school year I've had with him.  He's really good about grades but this year being his freshman year in high school was so stressful for me.  Somehow, he managed to pass all of his classes, even with just a 70.  He got his credits and that is all that matters.  No summer school or credit recovery classes for next year.  I just hope he learns from this past year and does better in his sophomore year.  I could use less stress since I plan on taking more classes in the fall to keep on track for my graduation in May 2017.

So yeah, thats about it in my life... now that I have more down time, it means more time to go walking and actually get some exercise in.  I feel the motivation now.  Oh, and we got a new dog... Gumbeaux, he's 10 weeks old and he's making sure I get my daily exercise of walking in.  I think I tire him out more.  Lol.

Yea to down time! Boo to stalls. Glad the scale is finally moving again. Great job on the inches lost. You reminded me I should probably check mine. said...

good job, busy girl, I don't know if I'm in a stall or in a Summer eating and drinking frenzy! I think the latter is the truth.
