hollipop's Journal, 23 April 2013

Well, it's a gain, but I knew it would be. I missed the gym all last week, and have eaten all kinds of stuff. Haven't even bothered much with logging cause I knew I would hate it. Overall, my gain wasn't at bad as I thought it would be. I think this is because, even though I'm not at the gym and my calories are up. I move more than I used to, even on "slacker" days. I love having the extra energy--cleaning house, playing with the kids, parking at the end of the parking lot to walk farther to the storefront. These are things I had trouble doing a year and a half ago, especially after working all day. It's nice to not come home from work and doing nothing but collapse in a chair until bedtime!
I've really been bitten by the spring-cleaning bug. This weekend and again last night, Hubby and I have been reorganizing closets and chests. Pulling out clothes that were too little for the boys and too big for me (yay!) Want to go through the boys toys to sort what they no longer play with, then maybe have a yard sale the first weekend of May. Hubby is taking off next week to landscape, powerwash the house, shampoo carpets etc. Just ready to Spring to really be here! This couple days of warmth, followed by a week of cold is killing me!
I need to get my butt in gear with my weightloss so I can buy some Spring clothes. I punished myself for not staying on track like I should and said, no more new clothes until I get down to 160. At the rate I'm going, it will be time for fall clothes by the time I finally reach it!
Anyway, better get some work done. Have a great day everybody!

I need the spring cleaning bug to bite me. It's still been cold here, but it sounds like this weekend is supposed to warm up and maybe it will finally feel like spring. I can't wait to be able to come home from work and go out to the garden or just sit outside. Get back to the gym (or walk outside if it's nice) and I'm sure you'll see a loss soon!

I think once the snow is all melted I might just find that spring cleaning bug... :) Glad it found you already! You can hit that goal, let's kick it in gear!
