It's been a month? Where has the time gone?

I've been busy.

Erasey erasey. I've not been following much of anything.

Uncle died, very very sad, saw family, very very good. I love my cousins, they're great people.

Check engine light was a sensor which is being fixed as I type this.

Did new sweater for BIL (brother in law), he likes it. Working on fish-shaped socks for Dad and afghan for friend.

What the heck was I talking about on the happiness journal?? Whatever?

Kits sales are way down. First class sales equals all other classes' sales. One more class until November, so I'm not earning until then. Oh well. We're getting a healthy tax refund (meaning we don't have to pay in for the first time in YEARS!!) and are refinancing the house, so maybe the depressing financial cloud because I quit work and "work=money=worth as a human being" will lift that follows me. (trying to keep my participles from dangling)

Need to watch Animal Cops and becoming those people... :0 House is messy and the pets need care. Will get child to help, since they're her pets.

Ok, I'd lost down to 161, then ate my way back up to 165, I think. Actually, it's 'that' time (like you REALLY wanted to know), and I'm one of those 'bloaters' that balloon up by 3-8 lbs for 1-2 weeks a month. I spend half the year as the Sta-Puff marshmallow guy. :P

On the PLUS side, 165 is my new personal high weight, lowering the previous 170 limit, plus, I can still wear size 10s, even at 165, so I know it's water weight. Now, my goal is to set 160 as the high weight, which means I need to get down to 155. :P

I can do this. I work out for no less that 30 minutes a day, whether at the gym on the stair climber (burns 260-330 cals, depending on if I go 30 or 45 mins), or with the aerobics tapes at home. Jane Fonda's 1980's tape is my favorite, it works for me. The Billy Blanks Kickology is almost too easy and is fun to do with my child. We'll sometimes do that. Then, too, I need to do more of the Yoga because I've been skipping it for the past week. Going to the funeral really messed up my workout schedule, but it was so worth it. Now when I think about working out, I do it for my uncle and do it because he should have. It would have kept him healthier and he died way too young at 61.

I do need to post my food journal. It varies from 1000-1800 calories a day, plus, now that I'm on Calorie King, I'll get an accurate pic of what my nutrients are.

Also, there's something else I need to try. Sleeping. Seriously. We bought a new computer over the weekend and it's fun. I've been too busy surfing and looking for Sims things to update this. :D Went to bed at 3:00am the night before, then 4:00am last night. Of course I still wake up at 8:00am to get the child to school and have been too busy running errands to take a nap. I have a few loose ends to wrap up today, but as soon as I'm done typing this, I'm taking a nap. I'm a total of seven hours behind in sleep from the last two days alone, never mind that I seem to stay sleep-deprived. (PMS causes insomnia. So does a new,4x better computer!!)

Tasks today:
Mail bills
Workout (Yoga, then Fonda)
Errands with child (must get cat food and litter!!!!!)
Pick up husband
Clean for 2 hours (added in the calories burned into my online cals burned journal for the day)

This is in my preferred order, things could change and always do.

Nap time!
