Last Friday was my last day at work. It was rough. I'd worked with the majority of these people for 7 years. They became my family. I am indifferent about the job, but it was rough leaving my work family behind. My last day consisted of taking pictures and good-byes. The majority of us in the picture below left on the 31st.
So we went to happy hour and had a few of these, Called Buttery Nipples, They were very smooth and very good.
The weekend was followed by some family drama which left me depressed and in need of something. It's taken me a while to get past all of it. And I still don't think I am totally there but I am working on it. Remembering back a whole week is difficult. I took my girls out to dinner, we went to Macaroni Grill. Not the best of choices but I love their food. I chose the Chicken Marsala. I got like 4 meals out of this. And I never did finish the pasta.
We've had some massive wind over the last couple of weeks. And it apparently blew a tumble weed into our back yard. My poor puppy got one stuck in his tail. It was so cute. He came up to the door with it stuck in his curly tail because he couldn't get it out.
Mad Monday brought my weigh in. I really haven't logged my food or done much exercise over that last two weeks so I haven't been expecting great results. But last Monday's weigh in was.....207.6! .6 lb loss. I'll take it!
So my totals are:
67.2 lbs down since 8/22/12!52.6 lbs down since surgery on 10/15/12!
I had to go for an unfill too Monday, I was constantly uncomfortable and getting stuck, so I opted to have some fluid removed. They took .3 cc's out of my band leaving me with a flat 7 cc's. I feel so much better! My doctor was a bit concerned that I had lost 5 lbs in a week and a half. She said I was a but tight.
I also decided to buy a painting set up for my house. So I did. Easel, paints, brushes, the whole 9 yards. I'll see about getting some pictures posted.
Tuesday brought a birthday celebration with my girlfriend. They played beer pong. I don't drink beer, never have, and since it's carbonated I'm not supposed to now. So I stuck to the hard stuff and we partied a bit! It was a good time!
I also went and got a new bathing suit. My other one is getting way big. So I go a size 14, fits pretty good! I am happy with it.
I have been exercising some. I went for a couple of runs this week and a bike ride. My knee is sore, so running hasn't been a good thing. I could barely get a 1/2 mile on Tuesday and was only able to do about 1 1/2 miles Thursday. So I went for a swim Friday and sat by the pool for a while It was nice. There wasn't really anyone there.
And we painted Cabo!
Today we had Fondue! It was so good. Not necessarily fat free but it was so good! Tomorrow I am going for another perm and a hair cut. Hopefully swim tomorrow afternoon as my schedule is pretty busy despite my unemployed status.
My daughter also had a band concert this past week and she lettered in that too! That makes 3 just this year and as a freshman too!
Anyway, thank you for your concern. And I have missed you all. I am going to work on getting back to reading your blogs.
I hope everyone has a great night! I will TTYS!! :)
