There's More Than One Way To Skin A Cat
Last Friday, I had do the band director thing - all day, late night attending an All Region event. Watch bands, help the kids, do that thing. Had a good time, especially since I had Caleb with me, but it meant no gym (we left early, didn't get home until after 11:00pm. Then, Saturday we were on a school bus at 6:45am to do the same thing.
Then, on Sunday we traveled to Jay, OK to attend the funeral of Melissa's great Aunt Helen. I never got to meet her, but she was a great woman by all accounts. It was good to make the trip, but then again - no gym, eating all your meals on the road... recipe for disaster.
On the drive home, a funny (ok, not funny at all) thing happened. We all decided to get violently sick. Flu bug, sniffles, runny noses - and the worst is that dang pounding-the-chest cough that doesn't even allow you to get out of bed. You know the one. There was only one sole survivor - Meghan. The rest of out, down for the count.
If there's ANYTHING good that come out of the flu, it's that I just didn't feel like eating. I felt absolutely horrible and haven't wanted to eat. That's DEFINITELY not my character.
So, I say all of this to say, I'm back down to about that 10 pounds that I lost.
If I end the month saying that I lost 10 pounds in January, you'd think I'd be happy about it. But I lost that 10 pounds in 10 days (and it's the EASY water-weight pounds) and haven't done anything else since to show for it. When I can shake this bug, I've been wanting to get back into the gym. It's something that I started to actually enjoy again.
Hope everyone else is doing well in their weight loss adventures. Stay tuned, I'll actually have a blog not filled with excuses sooner or later ;)
PS: I google for my images. The one up top is problem the nicest one I found for this blog. When I searched "skin a cat", I didn't think they'd actually show us the actual process. I just wanted a cute or funny picture of a cartoon cat. Gross.
