I'm baaaaack!

Wow, I can't even tell you what the last two weeks have been like...CAAAARAAAAAZY!!!!
Imagine this, taking two days to decided to pack up your all your belongings  to put into a storage unit for a year and moving to Canada with just a suitcase in the trunk. Sounds scary, huh. Well, that's my story. I had things packed, was in the process of getting out of phone contracts, rental contracts, and researching moving companies (cause you know I couldn't lift everything by myself) and then as fast as we decided to move, we changed our minds again. Back to unpacking boxes, telling all my friends that I'm really staying for a few more months and trying to regain some normalcy under some strange conditions. I had extreme lows, not so many highs and exhibited Emotional Eating 101.
So what am I up to now? Our daily routine is somewhat normal although my husband is living in Canada and I'm living in the US until my immigration paperwork clears (which could take 4-12 months.) So I'm a single mommy for the next few months (or a year...eek.). Now this isn't entirely new, my husband used to be a long haul trucker prior to the last few weeks so I was used to being on my own, but now I don't get periodic breaks when he was home etc.  Needless to say, I'm tired, it's hard and some days it's really lonely.
Amazingly, I have not gained anything, I actually lost at least I'm doing something right. I haven't tracked my food for the last two weeks although I have been wearing my bodybugg and uploading my burns so I knew I was burning a good chunk of calories...I was just hoping I was eating fewer. Apparently, I was :)

So the here are the juicy details-
last week I lost .6 lbs  and this week I lost 1.6
A little smaller than my averages but I'll take it! I feel like I'm back on track, I'm counting my calories and today I even took a 2.5 mile walk, in the rain, with my kiddo in tow (two thumbs up for the inventor of stroller covers!)

Whew, that was long, anyways, I hope that you all have a Happy Father's Day weekend!

  1. Wow, sounds like a lot to go through. Hopefully the paperwork will get done asap! That has to be hard being away from him for so long.
