at least it's Friday... :o)

Hey Ladies!

I know I've been horrible about not blogging lately. I just haven't felt like it this week. It's been a rough one. I've taken care of a flu ridden hub while having some other cold myself, dealt with a clogged sewer line and resetting our (one and only!!) toilet, had the most horrible TOM ever (a little bit of drama queen), burned my hand to the point of considering the ER, and had a deadline to deal with here at work. Tonight we're going to Atlanta again for the last part of our class, and I made brownies for a bake sale last night, just to burn them while I was freaking out over my hand. Needless to say, I'm not contributing to the bake sale. These things only happen to me. No. Really. I have the worst luck in the world. God must know that I can handle it, and it's really useful when searching for a way to give others a good laugh.

I'm over my horribly difficult week enough to laugh about it now, but when I was in the middle of it I definitely did not want to focus on it.

I hopped on the scale this morning and I knew I'd be up. And I was. I know it's TOM related, but that's not all of the weight. I'm sure some of it has to do with not caring about what was going into my body this week. And tons and tons of Orange Juice. So I'm trying my hardest to reel it back in today. And I need more water!!

I know I want to get back to where I was, but I'm not sure how I feel about trying to get out of my new clothes. I'm sure it's the cheapo in me, but if I'm going to have to buy a whole new wardrobe soon (ie: maternity clothes) I really can't see buying a size smaller just to wear them for a little while. We really can't afford that right now. And I'm really happy with myself where I am. But I don't want to bail out, either. I'm not sure. I just wish I'd hurry up and get pregnant so I don't have to make that decision. :o) Well, I know I need to lose about 7 pounds to get back to my lowest, so I guess I'll just focus on that right now. I just hate this yo-yo'ing.

I've decided not to beat myself up over it. I've dealt with this crazy week in the best way that I could, and I know that all the relapsed weight didn't just happen this week, and I'm just going to turn it around.

See why I haven't blogged? Nothing fun to talk about and a dilemma that ya'll will think is silly. :o)

Well, I'm going to get over myself and take these free minutes to check in on ya'll.

I hope you have wonderful weekends!!!

PS: Amanda, I promise that I'm not pregnant. Ugh. I thought I was, but I'm not. I would never be able to keep something like that from ya'll! :o)

I missed you!
I think you can expect bad TOM now that your off the BC. Sorry.
Take a multivitamin and drink water instead of OJ, it's not going to help your cold!
You can lose weight and keep the same clothes. They'll just be a bit bigger for awhile, then when you get pregnant you'll still be able to wear them for a long time before switching to maternity.

I know it seems like a waste to lose weight when you are trying to get pregnant, but remember that you are just practicing healthy eating habits, which are even more important when you are prego. Try not to focus on the weight aspect as much as the health benefits!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Glad you're back girly! Sorry to hear you had such a crummy week, but your attitude is awesome and those extra pounds will come screaming off I'm sure!

Candace said...

I totally dito ms malloy. Healthful eating is even more important when you're preggers. 35 lbs for each of mine and they were 9,3.5 and 9,15 (yikes). Imagine if I'd eaten like crap, I would've gained 70 lbs and had 14lb babies (yowsers!)

Melanie said...

Sorry to hear it was a tough week. But you are so right, God won't give you anything you can't handle! Hang in there and enjoy your weekend!

Amanda said...

I am so glad you are back!!! And you weren't lying to me :) I knew you weren't...I just missed you like crazy!

Sorry that you've had the week from Haiti, but it IS Friday so things are looking up. Here's hoping you don't catch hubby's flu. :)

Amanda said...

Check out my blog...I tagged you!

CaRoLyN said...

Glad your bad week is over and you take it for what is it...a bad week!
I agree with mmalloy. Seems like everyone does. Maybe part of your bad week can be attributed to being frustrated with your bad food choices??

BB said...

I tagged you too :O

WeightBGone said...

MMalloy said...

Missing your updates!! Hope things are going okay!

Amanda said...

Where are you?!? Miss your updates and hope all is well!! Hoping you didn't catch Jeremy's flu. :)

ThickChick said...

Ooh, Randi's got a good plan there! The more weight you lose, the longer you'll be able to wear your clothes once you're expecting.
Brilliant!

I'm with you on the TOM from hell. Hang in there!

WeightBGone said...
