I haven’t been very good at updating lately have I?
It’s been a tough year for us. We lost two of our cats. Our Siamese, Molly, started suffering from kidney failure in January and we lost her on March 10th. That was very hard for me. She was 17 (she would have been 18 in August) but still looked very young.
I guess I was in serious denial about her age. It was so hard for me. It still is. I miss her sleeping with me at night and coming home to her from work. She was my little angel.
Our oldest cat, Cynnamon, was diagnosed with cancer just last Saturday and we lost her on May 25th, two days later. She was a Daddy’s girl for sure. She loved my husband so very much. The feeling was mutual of course. Not that she didn’t love me, but she was his cat.
Sorry to be a downer after not updating for so long.
The reason for my updating is, of course, my weight loss. I’ve kind of been at a plateau for awhile. I need to get out of that. I need to update more. As of yesterday I’m 186, so that isn’t bad. I can’t seem to get under 184. So frustrating. I’m making the commitment to update every day in June. My weight loss, too. I know it could be worse. I could have gained the weight back I’ve lost over the past year and a half. I have 30 pounds I want to lose. I know I can do it !!!!
What? I know we’re already 4 days into 2014. But I really have a good excuse for not blogging sooner. I’ve been sick.
Something hit me like a brick. It started on Monday night (the 30th) and by New Years Eve I was a complete mess. We ordered pizza and watched a movie (I know, such party animals) but I just wasn’t feeling it. The highlight of the evening was when a friend of the hubby’s stopped over to pick up his laptop and I got to play with his son. Such a cutie (the cats were not amused). I spent the first day of 2014 on the couch sleeping off and on with the cats. Not the way I had planned on starting out the new year, but there wasn’t much I could do about it.
I dragged myself into work on Thursday because I had so much to get done. With being off the week before and it being the end of the month/year billing, I needed to make sure I got everything in on time. I was just so miserable. I know I’m sick when I don’t want coffee. I drank a lot of tea over the past few days.
I stayed home yesterday to try and get better. I’m happy to say that by around 4pm I started to feel like myself again and today I was finally about to get in my first workout of 2014. Again, not the way I had planned on starting off January, but I couldn’t do much about that.
I managed some cardio at home on the treadmill (I wasn’t going outside. It’s like 5 degrees right now) but tomorrow I plan on making it to the gym. I promised myself 2014 would be better and I want to include gym time in there.
So, like I said, Happy New Year!
What did you do for New Years Eve?
Saturday was moving day. By 10pm Saturday night the husband and I were passed out on the bed exhausted. But, we’re here!! It’s so quiet in the house. No one stomping above us or slamming of doors below us. It’s pretty awesome.
I brought the cats over the morning of the move. Both Molly and Bradley have adjusted pretty quickly. Cynnamon not so much. She is sulking in the master bedroom and freaks if you try to bring her out. I brought food in there for her because I haven’t seen her eat.
Here is Bradley (from my Instagram) this evening when I got home from work tonight:
I think he was watching the dogs across the street.
We still have to unpack and get things straightened out, but we’re here!
I’m finished reading Brain Over Binge. What an amazing book! And such an eyeopener. And I haven’t binged in 22 days. I’m so happy and proud of myself.
What did you do this weekend?
Have you ever moved? Do your pets handle it okay?
