Happy Hump Day

Good morning!  I stepped on the scale this morning to see where I was and it is exactly the same...exactly...as last Friday.  247.2.  Do I know how to maintain or what??!!  The problem is, I'm maintaining at the WRONG WEIGHT!!!  Oh...still so much work to do...but I'm going to stay in the game...one of these days I'll get it turned around.

Have you guys seen Pam's new food blog yet?  You all know Pam as my best friend from high school and her weight loss blog is called "The Rest Of the Journey"....but she's got a super cool food blog also listed on my sidebar called "From Apples To Zucchini"....she's got a ton of recipes and specializes in "healthifying" just about any recipe that she comes across....or ones that are her own creation.  This week she's doing a bunch of crockpot recipes complete with pics to give people ideas on how to have an easy dinner where you don't have to stand over the stove for an hour...perfect for super busy people!!   She made a Mexican Corn Chowder the other day that I can't wait to try.  Stop by and check it out....you're gonna' love it! :)

I wish I had more time to catch up on everyone....I'm still in garage sale mode...having one more this coming weekend because I still have so much stuff in my garage...just not ready to send it all to Goodwill yet.  I've also started packing to move as of this past weekend...did some more last night after work.  It's going to be a really busy 3 weeks in preparation for the move to my new tiny 1 bedroom apt!  I pro-rated the apt so I could start moving stuff over a few days early that I don't want to put on the moving truck, like my computer, clothes, some personal items, etc.  So I'll be starting to haul stuff over there after work on July 28-July 30th, and then we'll do the big move with the furniture on July 31st.  It can't get here fast enough....I'm really growing tired of the 1 1/2 hr commute every day in 5pm Atlanta traffic, and in Atlanta heat with no a/c in my car...not fun, lol.  But once I get moved my commute should only be about 20-25 mins, so I'm really looking forward to that! 

I'm still trying to jump around every chance I get and read some blogs....sometimes all I have time to do is read and not comment...just so busy right now, and thank God that's mainly because I have a JOB!!!  :)  Hang in there with me friends...I'll be back to regular blogging soon enough and it will be time to get this weight loss show back on the road!  :)

  4. I have faved the blog you mentioned and I want to check out her food blog, too. I need good ideas for healthy cooking. I am not much of a cook and need all the help I can get! lol

    Way to go, to maintain. Sometimes, when we are stressed and run off our feet, that is the best thing to do. Hang tough and soon things will settle a bit and you can devote more time and attention to your weight loss. And have a little more time to come hang out... :D

  6. Hi Tammy - I probably should send you an email. I'm stressed to the max right now with my job and no internet at home since last Wed before I went away. Driving me f-ing crazy! I don't have a date yet for being in Atlanta but will let you know as soon as I do. I keep asking my son when classes start for him and he hasn't found out yet. And I couldn't find it on Emory's website. ARGh.

    Hey, maintaining is better than gaining. You have so much going on that maintaining is actually pretty amazing! As you acclimate to the new job and get sorted out about the move, you'll be able to focus more on the other stuff. Survival, woman! Sometimes that's the best we can do! Take care, and hang in. I will definitely check out Pam's blog.

  9. Wow, do I feel like a dope! I had no idea you and Pam were best friends. Wow.

    I am so behind on blog reading, but I am so happy to read you have a job! Yay.

    Hope you're doing well.

  10. Whoa that is a long commute...and I have heard the commuter traffic in Atlanta is super bad. Once you get moved, things will settle down, and you can get back on track. What is my excuse? I haven't lost a pound in 2 months...haven't really put on any either (guess that's good). I don't know what the magic elixer is, except cutting my calories per day drastically. Any ideas, anybody? Hope your garage sale goes great!

    Hugs, Kathleen
