Damn 1 – I was just updating my blog roll and accidentally deleted a blog that either starts with the letter A or B. I have no idea who it is. I just know that when I went back the blog I had intended to delete was still there. Then I did it again! But I can’t remember what letter that one started with. So if I am no longer following you that is why. Please let me know.
Damn 2 – I have to go back to work tomorrow. It has been a wonderful two weeks off and I really don’t want to get up at 6:30 every morning but that is the way it is. My anxiety/depression is much more manageable when I am not working. A few years ago my doctor suggested I go on disability but I won’t do that. It wouldn’t be so bad if I could start my day a little later. My deepest sleep is between 4 and 9 so being woken up at 6:30 is dreadful. I could work evenings but my eyesight is getting worse. I have Fuch’s dystrophy and can’t drive after dark anymore. Anyway, it is back to the old grind tomorrow. I have requested a week in November so that will be nice.
Good news. I am continuing to lose weight. I have lost weight 14 weeks in a row now for a total of 16 pounds. I even lost weight during the last two weeks while on vacation. It was only .4 of a pound but I didn’t go up and that is amazing. I am still following the same eating plan and it is working. And I am never hungry. I still want to lose at least 23 more pounds. It has been especially cool because at my weigh-loss group I lost the most weight out of the entire group (about 35 people ) in a 3 month period. I won money for that! Each week your weight is recorded. If you go up you have to put .25 cents in the “Oops Pot”. The person that loses the most weight every 3 months wins the pot. And it was me! Yay!
I have been busy today doing housework and making kombucha tea. Some people know it as mushroom tea. I was buying it but realized that doing that was going to bankrupt me. It is about $5.00 for bottle that holds less than 2 cups. I can make my own for pennies. It is an inteserting process and super easy once you have the proper equipment. I had trouble fining jars that hold 16 cups but I eventually found them online at th Evil Walmart. Even I have a breaking point. Actually, that is a lie. I got my new iPad there. I saved over $100.00 there compared to Best Buy, Staples and London Drugs. I am evil and I deserve to be cast out forever. That’s okay. As long as I have my iPad to take along.
It seems my spell check has disappeared so you are getting Birdie as she really spells in everyday life. Please don’t point out my errors. I have enough to deal with going back to work tomorrow. Meh.
