Meltdowns, Snail Mail, and New Things – Oh MY

I don’t feel like writing the three posts I should write for today, so instead I’m going to try and be brief.

  • I had a minor meltdown this weekend about pants not fitting. By minor I mean sobbing on Frank’s shoulder and angry at myself for eating like a jerk and derailing myself so much.Β  Yesterday was a pretty good start to getting back on the wagon and while there’s no way I’ll hit my goal of 13ish lbs by the start of winter without a case of E. Coli or Dysentery, I will give it my best shot. It’s more like 18ish now. Part of it is that I stopped running and swimming, part of it is that I’ve been eating like a jerk. The pool is open again today and I’m working on both meal plans and move more plans.
  • October being for OM and OMG Snail Mail was a partial fail and partial success. I have come to the conclusion that I just don’t like Yoga and as such have difficulty motivating myself to do it or even looking forward to it. I like the stretching aspect, but the mental part does nothing for me. On the OMG Snail Mail, I did an awesome job if I do say so myself. I don’t know how many pieces of mail I sent, but it was many. I have more to send too.
  • My Reader Assigned Challenge for November is one that I’m challenging myself to at the joking remark of a friend. Her remark? “How are you going to get all of that done AND add more?” Yes, she was serious. So! Without adding more to my To-Do list, in November I’m going to focus on finishing all the projects I started and only starting new projects that absolutely have to be done before the end of November. Frank and I may also go hiking later this month once the frost comes. Before then will likely be an allergy nightmare for me.

That’s it for now. I’ll be back later with a Thankful post.

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    Oh, love. Sorry you had the meltdown. But you look beautiful. And besides that, if you re-focus on your goals, you can definitely accomplish everything you want to. I’ll be facing similar challenges after I give birth to this critter, and would be happy to get together to motivate one another in our sweatpants. πŸ™‚ And you won’t catch me doing yoga, either. I will forever remain a yoga wannabe with a body and mind that prefer to remain a little bit more cluttered. πŸ™‚ Love you.

    I’d say you totally succeeded at Snail Mail! I got my package today…and in October I received that little note. YAY FOR SNAIL MAIL! πŸ˜€

    I can’t get behind the Yoga thing, either. Maybe Pilates? Or is that just Yoga in the witness protection program?

    Emmy’s Mama is right – you look beautiful, and if your pants weren’t fitting right, I say it’s their issue. Stupid pants. They were probably made by a boy.
