DairyFarmersWife's Journal, 14 June 2013

Smacks head. Well I haven't lost. I haven't gained. I suppose that in itself is a triump of sorts when you consider what I've been doing to myself. I wrote a 275 page troubleshooting book in 2 weeks. 2 freaking weeks. I took work home every freaking night. I milked cows, I fed calves, I cleaned stalls, I cooked dinner, I took care of kids, I think I even fed the dogs, I did other stuff.. I'm just to fried to know what I did! There is a pink and purple tug boat lookin thing with bows and an anchor at school right now to test how much weight it can hold! It's got a sail! How did it get those things? No clue... I remember cutting up a refrigeration shipping box and buying duct tape.

I feel groooooooss. I feel blah. My pants are snug. I need a nap. I need a stiff drink. I need to cut all the crap, eat right, lug an eliptical down a flight of stairs, and workout. Starting right now.. It's all about me and getting me back on track. Everyone else can go suck it. Speaking of which I need to find all those lovely teething toys and throw them in the fridge before the boy naws on me anymore. You realize you may have an issue when you're working on the computer and you look down to discover a kid chewing on the hem of your shirt. Luckily the canibal is in his own room as of last night and now there is room for an eliptical in the bedroom again. Bonus... the bedroom has a lock!!

I'm going to go collapse now. When I wake up I'm going to drive home, do chores, play with the beefers.. and lug an eliptcal down a flight of stairs hopefully not injuring the stairs, the machine, the house, or myself. Yup yup.


Yup Yup! I gotta lug something somewhere too...I think our motivations are hanging out together. They are so grounded! It is past, way past, their curfew!

Glad you're back! Missed your daily rants! So sorry to hear that you've been weighed down by the day job work. Keep dogging paddling girlie! It's all good. It's Friday...that should count for something. Congrats on getting Lil Man into his own room...that's a milestone and a reason to celebrate with some wine! Now, when you move the elliptical down wrap it up in towels and then that way there will be no damage to the house and try to keep your toes clear! Good luck and good for you on maintaining your weight the last 2 weeks. Try, try, try!!!

Sounds like you need about a 2 week nap now after all that. Now, though it's time to get back on track and keep moving forward. At least there hasn't been a gain, that's a positive. I hope you get some time to breathe now! :)

Sounds like body and mind need a rest! And I love how your thinking is do not injure: stairs, machine, house, self. Shouldn't that be the other way around? I thought it was all about you! :P

You get more exercise than most people by just doing your daily routine on the farm. It's like you're working 3 jobs, with two of them involving physical labor. I bet you'll start losing weight again soon. The work stress could have interfered with that. I find it hard not to eat the wrong things when I'm stressed - so I think your maintaining your weight is a triumph.

So you've had some practice at maintenance is all! I consider it a plus to have not gained anything. Hopefully things slow down a bit and you can get back at the whole losing part!!
