Mid week update

Wait, is it Thursday already? That's the kind of week it's been.

But relative to recent weeks, it's been stellar. Nobody's sick, everyone's in school & at work. No (more) major technology failures. And as far as I know, I haven't pissed anyone off recently.

Food & exercise are perfectly acceptable. I'm on Day 11 of the crack diet & I'm sticking to the plan. I weighed 151.4 this morning. My jeans that were cutting off my circulation a couple weeks ago now fit much more easily and I'm not straining against all the seams any more.

And I have run the past 2 days--3 miles Tuesday & 4 miles Wednesday. I have yet to do the Shred video again, which is silly really because it's only 20 minutes. But seriously, the only 20 minutes I'd have is at 5:30 a.m. (which isn't happening...yet) or at 9 p.m. I'm not quite ready to commit exercise to either of those times yet, so it's going to be running after work/before kid pickup for now.

This afternoon I'm meeting with Sophie's doctor about her dizzy spells & my suspicions of her ADD (attention deficit, not hyper activity). I'm hoping it's a productive meeting & we get some solid next steps.

Then tonight I'm going to a friend's house for a Southern Living at Home party. I've never been to one of these, and really I couldn't care less about what they have to sell. Unless it's a kitchen multi-tasker that I can't live without, I'm not buying anything. I'm so over *consuming* stuff. I don't want anything for my home, my yard, my car, my body. I'm satisfied with what I've got. I don't need no more.

But I'll get to visit with my girlfriends, and that's why I'm going. Time with the girls without kids is, unfortunately, very rare.

Not much else to report. Good stuff is good stuff & I'm thankful to not be whining and complaining any longer. I hope it lasts for a while. :)

Sounds like you are doing well. I am so with you on the being done consuming things. I have boxes and bins of stuff I am purging. It is going to feel so good when it is gone that I don't want to add to it.

At last report - found four other people that had SEVERE dizziness problems the week that Sophie did. Mine was manageable - but they were nearly non-functioning.

It sounds like you are doing GREAT. And I'm with you on the "done with consuming things" (although I'd like a new purse so I'm a bit of a hypocrite).
