Runs for Cookies: Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 133


It has been a really emotional few days. I’m attempting to simply let go of the incident with Eli’s surgical procedure, and I am ensuring to not harp on it out loud at residence, however I am simply so indignant on the dentist (and employees) for treating us so poorly. And now I’m tremendous nervous about Noah getting his knowledge tooth pulled, which must occur quickly.

Clearly, we cannot be going to that dentist, which suggests I’ve to discover a new one. And after what occurred with Eli, I’ll possible analysis it to demise and nonetheless really feel like I can not make the fitting determination! Noah’s an grownup, and might make his personal determination concerning this, however at 19 years outdated, I really feel like one would are inclined to depend on their dad and mom to assist out.

I’ve additionally been emotional about Noah transferring out. He is transferring on Friday! I want I had extra time to organize for this. Jerry and I’ve each been feeling the impression of getting grownup kids (properly, Eli shall be 18 in a couple of weeks). Good grief, simply typing that introduced tears to my eyes.

If you’re pregnant, everyone tells you that the years are going to fly by and you may want you’d targeted extra on the current every day whereas the youngsters are rising. And now I really feel like that’s the finest recommendation to offer new dad and mom; and so they’ll nod and smile at me, like Jerry and I did to those that gave us that very same recommendation, after which they will give the identical recommendation in 18 years to different new dad and mom. I hate that we do not actually understand how briskly it goes till the youngsters are grown and their childhood feels prefer it glided by within the blink of an eye fixed.

Okay, sufficient about that! I will maintain this brief as a result of I am serving to Noah pack his issues and holy cow–he’s obtained much more than you’ll assume.

There is not a lot to report so far as my weight goes:

Final week, I used to be at 141.2, and at this time I used to be at 140.6. I might like to see it go down quicker, however I do know that I am making good selections, in order that’s all I can do on my finish.

I keep in mind after I labored at Curves (a health middle) the ladies there would speak about how exhausting it’s to drop pounds after 40 years outdated. I by no means actually purchased into that (in fact, I used to be in my early 20’s on the time) and I do marvel if it is true. And whether or not it is from life-style or simply ageing and hormones and perimenopause and all that enjoyable stuff. In all probability a mixture.

Nonetheless, I do not really feel like I am at that time. Earlier this yr, I had no downside shedding pounds. I do know that I have not been practically as lively as I was, although. For a number of years, I used to be continuously engaged on huge initiatives in the home. It wasn’t intentional train, however I used to be lifting loads of heavy issues, going up and down the ladder one million occasions over, strolling forwards and backwards to the storage, and so on. I’ve nonetheless been engaged on issues, however on a a lot smaller scale and so they aren’t as lively.

Now that Noah is transferring out, I will have the spare bed room to work on. I do know I need to put my craft stuff in there, however I will most likely paint and probably substitute the carpet. It is a fairly small room (I feel 9’x9′) so it is not going to be completely overwhelming. Nevertheless it’s type of enjoyable to think about the chances. It jogs my memory of when the boys have been little and so they shared a room with bunk beds. (right here come tears once more)

So far as my weight goes this week, I am simply going to maintain doing what I have been doing, for probably the most half. I have not been consuming sweets and I am engaged on portion management. I nonetheless run each morning (although it is solely across the block). I may very well be doing extra, however for the second, with all I’ve occurring, I’m proud of what I am doing.

Nicely, I higher get again to packing earlier than I make dinner. I am unsure how a lot I will be posting within the upcoming week or so, as a result of with Noah transferring, I will be busy–and very emotional, haha.
