Starting Fresh

I got on the scale this morning and it said 216. That is 11 lbs up from the lowest I've seen.
Figured that means it's time for a reset day or three before my fill on Wednesday.

I stocked up on pre-made protein shakes. I've found I drink them better if they are already made. Also I found some Myoplex Chocolate Fudge shakes that are only 300 cals, 2 grams of sugar, and 42 grams of protein. The don't taste awful, not good either, but also not gag worthy.

I'm slowly catching up on all the household chores that I got behind on. I must have it all done before Husband comes home from A-stan in a couple of weeks. I'd like to get it all done and get back into the swing of exercising again. He came home in October for his two weeks of leave and after he left, I fell into a hole of depression. I quit working out the day he left and haven't been back since. I miss it. I miss feeling good and like I accomplished something.

Today I spent the morning reading to 5&6 year olds. Then I spent a couple of hours making beds in the barracks for the single soldiers who are coming home. After lunch I worked at the school again helping with the last day of our bookfair. I logged on to tally my volunteer hours for January and discovered I've volunteered 350+ hours for 2010. Not too bad.
I think this year my goal will be 365 hours.

  1. I hate having to lose the same pounds more than once. It just pisses me off! I'm sorry you've been having such a tough time. I can't imagine what it's like to have your husband gone, possibly in harm's way.

    It sounds like you are pulling yourself out of it. I am confident you'll get back to the exercising! Crazy how much of a difference it makes!

    Very cool that you've done so much volunteer work!
