Monday Morning Cheers and Jeers

Cheers

First off, Boys and girls, Husband and I took the week as vacation. I cannot tell you how happy I am to not be going into the office for a whole week.

First thing that I did on my day off was step on the scale for my Monday morning weigh-in. To my surprise, it returned another smaller number. I'm now -2 of my goal of -8 by early February. Unbelievable. This next week is going to be a challenge with Thanksgiving happening, but it's all a matter of portion control. At least that's how I'm approaching it.

And a double cheer on this last one. The kids happily bagged up leaves from the backyard so they could earn the extra money they needed to buy Guitar Hero for the Wii (they had most of it already, but needed a little more). And then they bought the game which has turned out to be a lot of fun. While I have time off work, I just may spend time unleashing my inner Guitar Hero. LOL.

Jeers

My knees and hip continue to bother me. As a result, my recent runs have been shorter and slower and with more walking. I probably ought to see someone if still an issue next week. Sigh.

We're in the market for a new water softener (btw, this is probably the root cause for why we had to repair the dishwasher).

  1. Congrats on the weight loss! Maybe some stretching and exercises can help with that hip and knee. Somebody more knowledgable in those kinds of things should be able to help you out!

  12. Great job clicking down to -2.

    Don't buy a cheep water softener. You get what you pay for. They don't last forever but they are a good thing for the casa.

  13. good job, lisa!!

    have a great vacation and a happy thanksgiving!

    definitely get the knees/hips thing worked out - i'm dealing with similar but i just orthodics, so i think that's half the problem, i have to get used to them. maybe a massage?

  14. Lisa, cheers on watching the scale go down! Now you've got a little comfort zone if you overdo it a little this week. And cheers on taking the week off! I'm off tomorrow too, so it will be nice to not be as rushed and frazzled for a change. And hopefully you can get the knee/hip thing figured out. Maybe its your shoes? Or maybe you need orthotics? Its frustrating when you don't know how to fix something.
