Off Scale Edification

Weight Watchers Weigh-In has me up 2 lbs today.  This is not really surprising to me for two reasons.  Reason 1.  I’m on the front end of my cycle.  (Sorry boys.)  This means that I am retaining water like a dry sponge.  AND BONUS my appetite is up b/c of aforementioned cycle.  DOUBLE BONUS, I’m really stressed out about work stuff.  I will give you a guess about what I do when I’m stressed.  Reason 2.  I started weights this week.  There is no doubt in my mind that I am possibly the weakest I have ever been.  There is no where but up for my muscle density to go.  Additionally, when muscles are repairing themselves, they have an awful habit of retaining fluid.

Anyone else sensing a trend here to my week?

That being said, anyone who as been at the weight loss effort for a while knows that sometimes you have to go off scale for a little edification.  And so here is mine:

Weight: 207.8
Bust: 44/40 (-1.75 inches total)/(no change)
Waist: 38.75 (-1.25 in past month/-3.75 inches total)
Hips: 54 (this is a new measure across the hip bones)
Bottom: 45 (-2 inches total)
Thigh: 27.5
Upper Arm: 13.75

Cheers!

Trim the Snails! and other epic failures

Bean has been coughing.  Alot.  Alot Alot.  This is despite a steroid inhaler that she has been on for a different reason.  I am afeared that it’s possible that the illness causing the cough is possibly worse than it is presenting.  ugh.  I may have to take tomorrow off for a trip to Peds.  I seriously need to not take tomorrow off.  ugh.  

In other news, today’s experience at a Staff Appreciation Brunch can only be defined as an epic fail. Seriously.  Cake and fruit and chicken biscuits and pastry and did I mention the cake?  (Shaking head slowly at myself.  Thinking about sending myself to bed without any supper.)
