So it's Monday, my typical weigh in. I'm saying goodbye to the 270's today and beginning the journey through the 260's. I haven't been under 270 since 2006. I've had jaunts up into the 280's followed by a short skip into the 270's then back to the 280's again since then, but never below 270.
This weekend, somehow I found a pair of capri's that I haven't worn since 2006. They are brand new, I bought them the week before my dad passed away when I was about 248 or so. They were kind of big on me then (I like my pants to be a little baggy, tight sucks thanks much!) because they were non-stretch pants I tend to give myself a little extra room just in case, and for when Aunt Flo comes to visit. So they're a size 26 pant, non-stretch and I have no idea how they ended up in plain sight on my floor. Out of curiosity to see if they were my pants or D's (they were folded), I picked them up and was like HEY! I know these pants! So I tried them on, and they fit, comfortably though a tad bit snug. I can wear them all day and zip them up without having to do the "gotta...get...those...pants on" dance, but they're a little bit snugger than I'd normally wear my pants. Score one for me!
Otherwise it was an uneventful weekend. I have a huge homework assignment due this evening and unfortunately I haven't even really started on it. I'm was so tired from the crazy week at work I didn't even want to look at my homework, and now I'm regretting it. Hopefully I can do most if not all of it at work today because I'm really not feeling well either. Before I went to bed last night I was getting a stomach ache and chauked it up to something I'd ate not agreeing with me or something, but then this morning when I woke up it hit me like a ton of bricks again and even now at work I'm still feeling ill. Usually if it's not really me being sick but something not agreeing with me or just me lagging at getting up in the morning (I sometimes wake up feeling icky), it'll go away after I get up and get moving. Today is not one of those days. I really hope I'm not getting sick, or that I get sick enough to go home and snooze and feel more refreshed later or something.
Another good thing to report, my foot problem is gone. I'd been using some over the counter cream at first, and switched to another, different over the counter cream (per dr. advice) and that cleared it up completely over the weekend. Very happy I am. Talk like Yoda I will. Anyhooo...so my feet no longer itch or hurt like mad. Which means I can start going for walks again woo.
Anyway I'm going to stop babbling now. I need to take a look at that assignment and get to work on it. Take it easy ya'll.
