Highs and Lows

Gary the cat.

Yesterday I was a hot mess.  My emotions were getting the best of me, on the verge of crying most of
the day.  And when I wasn't almost crying I was trying to hold my tongue to keep the bitterness in.  I don't like feeling this way and I hope it does not last too long. Sigh:::

To keep my emotions in check, I kept busy during school and after work.  Dinner was spaghetti, salad and Cuban bread.  I made myself a salad with cut up ham and a boiled egg.  Still trying to keep it low carb.

After dinner, I put up a few more Halloween decorations in the front yard and packed up three items that sold on eBay.  Two of them are fragile and took more time to pack up.  I double boxed them and wrapped each item with extra bubble wrap.

Today, I am planning on visiting a friend after work.  She has been cleaning out her deceased mom's house and has a couple of boxes of stuff for me. I never say no to free stuff to list on eBay.  They are various collectibles of her mom's that she is not interested in keeping.   I am going to try to get them listed this weekend.

I have tracked my weight for the last two days and I have an increase of 0.9%!  That is not the way I want the scale to move!! Oh well, weight fluctuates daily so I won't let it knock me off track.  I tell ya, looking at myself in the video from the front doorbell is motivation to try my best to stay on track.  Good grief.

9/23 weight 0.9% increase  Steps 6,906 (2.4miles)
9/24 no change  Steps 6,456 (2.2 miles)


  1. Sorry you had a crappy day yesterday. Freebies to list on eBay is a good thing though! I am trying to get things up on eBay but it's going so slooooooooow....it's a hard horse to climb back on when you've been off it so long. lolz

    1. Thanks Sluggy! It's that first listing that is the hardest! You can do it.

  2. I'm sorry homey, I wish I was there to help you laugh. Don't worry about .9 weight gain I know that is hard when you are trying so hard and you are probably hungry. Here is a virtual hug.

    1. Thanks, Kim! I appreciate the hug. Things will get better, no doubt.
