Rollercoaster BLAHS

I really don't know what the deal is but I'm still feeling kind of blah. This week at weigh in I was down .2lbs. Which is amazing considering all the damage I did on Valentine's. It started with free breakfast tacos and juice. I ate one for breakfast and the other for lunch. Then came the chocolates. I love ferrero rocher (spelling?) and one of my students always brings it to me without fail. It was Valentine's day, I was alone, I had to eat some of it. Luckily I didn't eat all of it. Then Valentine's night I went out to dinner and ate a bunch of french fries, so I was pleasantly surprised when the scale was down. However, I know that it still could come back to haunt me.
This week I've been tracking and staying on plan but I still just have that blah feeling. Things at work are really bugging me and I'm just feeling a general sense of ugh. In fact last night I heard a commercial for menopause and before they stated what the condition was they told all the symptoms posed as a question, of course. My answer was "yes" to all of them. Maybe that's the problem, at 29 I'm going through menopause. That's not really true. However, I have seriously been contemplating the purchase of a cat, you can never start your collection to soon. :)

A case of the Blahs

This week has been quite "blah". Last week at weigh in I was down 9 lbs. I was stoked excited ready to go, I was all aboard the weight loss express. Then the girl scout cookies came and I ate almost and entire box of them on Monday. Then on Tuesday which is my weigh in day I ate a bunch more right before weigh in. So I was up .8lbs. It was okay though cause I was still pumped and still on that weight loss wagon. Then I got sick and have had a cold all week. We've also had a ton of work piled on us and yesterday I got to spend part of the day with my student pulling everyone else out of their chairs. Now its 6:40 am on Saturday morning I'm contemplating going to the grocery store before I have to go to work to finish my mounds of work. I stepped on the scale and its still up. BLAH! Hopefully I'll get out of this funk cause it's not cool!

No Snow :(

I'm sure that people in the Mid-west and even Dallas are tired of all the snow, but down here in Houston we were very excited to hear it was our turn. It wasn't going to be a ton but even a little is a lot to us down here. They canceled school today and most of the city was shut down in anticipation. I was definitely excited. I had plans to build a snow man on my patio and just admire the beauty and wonder of the magical winter wonderland. My kiddos were super excited. We discussed their plans yesterday to build snowmen, throw snow balls and make snow angels, which they described by flailing there arms and saying "you know the things were u lay in the snow". One kid was even going to build a school bus out of snow, he has a slightly concerning obsession with school buses. However, there was no snow to behold this morning. I don't know if I was more disappointed for myself or for my kids. Snow is magical for us Texans and even more so when you're small. Maybe Wednesday it will happen, you know for the kids sake. :)
