Some good news!

I almost started this post with an apology for less than uplifting posts as of late...but I changed my mind. No need to apologize for having a life that gets complicated and messy sometimes, or for feeling tired and vulnerable. I need to embrace my humanness.

So yesterday I rested and rested.  I ate on a veggie/chicken dish (you know the one I cooked and upheld to myself as some self-care) I had made, enjoyed a few clementines, and  drank lots of water. I went to bed early and slept for over 12 hrs! This morning I was 3lbs lighter...can you believe it? So I finally lost the 1.5 I gained over Christmas and another 1.5lbs.  Yeah and a happy dance!

I'm cleaning, packing, and gathering foods to take on my trip. I'm meeting up with my out-of-town working husband tonight, and will be on my way to CA in the morning. I hope to keep checking in with you all while I'm gone. I'm unsure how next week will go.

I'm always grateful for each of you and your support. Let's keep going ladies...even if it means you need to rest for awhile :)


  1. Well its so good to hear that you are feeling better and your weight is great. Let me know if you anywhere near me so we can meet this time.
    Have a great day :-)

  2. So funny how things work! Just when you least expect it. Hope you are feeling refreshed and renewed!

  3. Good luck packing and such, and I am so proud of you for losing weight during a stressful time! Those times are the hardest for me.

  4. I'm so glad to hear that taking care of yourself is already showing such positive results. I'm sure you feel much better despite the stress that remains. Have a safe trip.

  5. You lost three pounds?! That is awesome!! I hope your trip goes well and you are able to stay in touch. Be safe!

  6. No need to apologize for a less than uplifting post. I have felt the same way, but these blogs are about honesty and what's real in our lives. I'm glad you got some much needed rest, and that the scale reading was favorable. Have a good trip and keep us posted on everything...the good, the bad and the ugly! Sending you love and hugs!
