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.

MollyI 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 !!!!

Welcome, August!!

Hello, August! I’m so glad I’m not spending your wonderful first day dry heaving into a garbage can.  I truly thank you for being amazing already.

Speaking of that, did you read or hear about Cyclospora? Pretty sure that is what did me in last month. I had salad that Friday before my vacation. True story.

Right now I am currently enjoying the high of a 4 day weekend. The big wedding is Sunday. The weight I had so hoped to lose? Didn’t happen. I’m not stressing out about it. I found myself a beautiful dress that I can’t wait to wear and Tuesday I spent a wonderful day with my Mom getting a pedicure (my toes are so adorable), having lunch and doing a little retail therapy. I just need the perfect pair of shoes.

I cannot wait to see how handsome my husband looks in his tuxedo. Pictures will be taken.

August is a new month. I have big plans. Beating myself up is not going to get me anywhere.

And a BIG Happy Birthday to this old girl who turns 17 today.2010-12-07 20.38.3317 years ago I found a tiny little kitten who was covered in fleas. She hissed and spit at me and tried to scratch and bite me. I took her into the house, cleaned her up and bottle fed her. She took to the husband like a true Daddy’s girl. Now, Cynnamon still tries to scratch and bite (still the wild one), but she is beautiful old lady. We love this cat and she made the husband love kitties.


I was incredibly happy to see this tonight.

Cynnamon is finally attempting to come out of hiding.  The poor thing has been hiding for almost a week. I guess it’s hard at almost 17 years old to get used to a new house after living in the same apartment for your whole life. But, tonight she seems to finally realized she’s in a safe place and it’s okay to come out and look around.

Tomorrow we go back to the apartment and clean up anything we left behind. I really don’t want to go back there, but I know we left a few things and the place could use a good vacuuming and mopping.  Plus, the husband needs to get his motorcycle out of the garage. I don’t want to go back there.


What a I really hope to do this weekend is get my home gym set up. If we can get the apartment all set (we are paid up until the end of April) I want to get the home gym set up on Sunday. My treadmill is set up, but the Bowflex isn’t and all my free weights are packed away.  I don’t have time to do all the things I want to do. The husband leaves in a week and I want to spend as much time with him as possible.


I’ve now gone 26 days binge free thanks to Brain Over Binge. I’ve never been so proud of myself. Not even when I lost 130 pounds or when I ran my half marathon.  Now, I’m reading another book called Diet Recovery 2. I’m it’s also opening my eyes and I’m hoping it will end my diet struggles. I need to just be ME again. Since I stopped binging and worrying about food, I’ve been the happiest I’ve been in a very long time.


What are you most proud of?

Weekend plans?
