I am slacking off on my stitching.
I started working out again. I've been losing weight very slowly since the car got killed and my teeth got redone. Not a lot, but the stress reduced my appetite, and there are so many foods that I can't eat now because of my teeth. All of my favorite super-fattening foods are out--candybars with nuts, candy apples, caramel apples, kettle potato chips, hard-fried chicken, almost anything superhard, sticky or crunchy will break my teeth--so it's easier. But I have lost a little, but I want more. When I went on BC pills and started working out, I lost almost 40 pounds in a year, and then I went off and gained it all back in 4 months. I could kick myself for that. But that wouldn't really help anything, would it?
So I'm back exercising. I have been doing it in the mornings before work. It's easier for me, and it gives me a chance to think, which I need. I bought some dance workout videos. It's funny, I don't view that as exercise; I used to dance when I was acting and singing, and it wasn't a workout, it was just something I did while I was singing, LOL. And this is fun; I was dancing in the car last night, and I didn't feel stupid.
But I've been tuckered out when I get back to the house at night. We went out to dinner, because SO wanted a steak and salad, and the only salad we have is chicken salad. I think I went right to bed when we got home--I was worn out. But it's a good thing, I'm down 12 pounds from my summer high weight. You can't see a huge change yet, but it's a start!
