Also thought of as 'what haven't I been doing the past week.'
Around these parts it's either feast or famine. Husband and I are known for operating at one pace for constant lenghts of time: busy. I tend to try to dial it back on Tuesdays and just about Tuesday only if I'm lucky. He on the other hand can operate like a snake eating it's tail. But in a good, non cannibalistic way, for those who were worried.
I had my first ingrown toenail removed, or rather a sliver of the full nail. Kind of gross and unpleasant but it went about as expected. I was suffering a stomach flu the same day so it was one of those 'smash-my-hand-to-distract-me-from-my-missing-toe' kind of situations except imagine to ghost hands wrapped around my intestines and crocheting them into a doily against my will. So. Much. Fun.
Speaking of doilies the MIL is still twisted up. We hope to discover the severity of her current intestinal stricture after a procedure on Wednesday. Lucky for us she's used to functioning through pain but she's shedding weight like a snake's summer skin with her current liquid diet. Soup, broth, liquid supplement and repeat.
Between her and I, from mid-April through mid-June, we have 13 consecutive weeks of doctor appointments and procedures scheduled around work. That leaves very little free time, far too much time spent at the hospital I work and play at, and a few minutes left for the cat.
I have snuck back onto the WoWtrain a bit. I went between 6 and 8 months with very little gaming and this past week have squeezed in my evenings farming, killing and grinding. If you play you get it. Essentially the same thing all you Farmville, FBing, Twitterstalking, Piinterestedaddicted, solitaire playing fools do. Distracting myself with a little digital distraction.
The diet is also going well, if I can randomly change topics. I could wax on about a bridge between the last paragrah and this, but I won't. After 3 weeks of morning workouts, cutting out the processed crap, fresh and green foods and even the occasional restaurant I'm down 10 lbs and quite a few inches. My goal is another 30 in the same slow steady consistent pace. I wouldn't mind fast, but it won't stay off. I've recently been busting my own chops about my history with weight loss/gain since I hit Germany and it's not doing me any good. (185 upon arrival, dropped to 168 for the first time in years on a strict no sodium/lowest fat diet, gained 22 lbs back in the 23 days we went stateside, gained another 15 lbs between than and husbands returned from deployment and capped at 207 - thank you doctor's scale.) I'm highly aware than 10 pounds in 3 weeks is good weight loss, I just have a goal of 155-165 in mind and want to be healthy and not obsess about it.
Damn the flying monkeys for hiding the vodka. Mommy just wants a sip! I'm sure it's calorie free ...
P.S. I've more food tips that I've discovered in the building of flavor profiles and decreasing the calories, carbs, fat and sodium to post! Sadly, not today. I just like to tease.
