There will be no weekly weigh in today. I’m sorry. I had good intentions to go on Wednesday, knowing I couldn’t go today but stuff happens. In fact, this has pretty much been the week from you-know-where!
I have worked EVERYDAY except Monday. That’s not the bad part, in fact, that’s pretty normal (not for a teacher during the summer but for most Americans!).
The bad part came on Tuesday. I got home from working all day and OUR AIR WAS OUT! As in, broken. Hot air. NO WORKEY!
It’s funny how the minute things start going bad, really bad, I want to eat something bad, really bad. No matter how much weight I lose, I don’t know if those feelings will ever go away. What is it about food that we find comforting when things are not going well in our life?
Anyway, instead of devouring nachos bell grande from Taco Bell, I chose three soft tacos. Small success. We luckily found a close friend’s husband who could come out and look at our air on Wednesday morning (hence skipping the Weight Watchers weigh in).
So, $2000 later, we have a new air conditioning unit. Ok…we will deal with is.
Today, another bombshell. An unexpected, almost $400 bill at the doctor’s office. WHAT?!?!?
WHERE ARE THE PEANUT BUTTER M & M’S AT QT, AGAIN?!?!?
No…I didn’t do it. But I wanted to. Like eating peanut butter M & M’s is going to make money magically appear in my checking account to cover all of these bills. NOPE! Eating peanut M & M’s will just make me regret it afterwards and probably gain a pound or two next week.
So…it’s been a week. A long, stressful, money-sucking week. But, I am trying to think like a skinny person and keep my mind focused. I think I will take the opportunity this weekend to get in some long walks/jogs. That should make me feel better!
What are your weekend plans?
