I've managed to undo the damage from last week and weighed in today at 160.8. My goodness, I can't wait to break through into the 150s!
I have to admit I've been feeling kind of "blah" over the past week. Although I am finding ways to stay active, I haven't had a solid exercise routine since finishing Body Revolution a few weeks ago. Perhaps that is throwing me off. I continue to run 2-3 times a week, but I'm having a hard time with that as well. I make sure my blood sugar is on the higher side before I begin (I usually need to start in the 10.0 to 12.0 mmol/L range), and even drink a 1/2 glass of juice before starting as well, but I always seem to return home with a low blood sugar which means even more juice and calories (not to mention having that drunken-like feeling as I stumble up my road to get home).
I do know that my stress level has been gradually elevating with thinking about all the things we need to do to prepare for our big move. Mr. McMuffintop still hasn't received the official "green light" from his physical (although he is overweight and his cholesterol was elevated, the person who did the physical said it shouldn't prevent him from getting hired; the hold up is simply that the company's doctor hasn't had a chance to review and approve the physical yet).
So until he gets that green light, everything we need to do to prepare is on hold. We have been searching MLS for house listings, but we really need to get out there and look for ourselves. We can't decide whether to buy a house or a condo. We want to adopt a child/children so a house would be better, but if for some reason it doesn't happen then a smaller condo would suit us just fine. Gah, I wish I could see the future!
Ok, back to positive thoughts. :)
This weekend I am hosting a Mother's-Day-slash-birthday dinner for my family, so I plan to prepare as much of the food in advance as possible so that I can enjoy the day rather than be running around in a frenzy. I already made some cupcakes last weekend and immediately put them in the freezer so that they would be out-of-sight, out-of-mind. McMuffintop 1, delicious food 0!
