I quit my job in my home city and am working back at the University in the neighbouring city. I am so glad to be back here. It is just like coming home. My first day back, my friend, KM, came and got me for coffee. I went for a walk around the lake with her and CM at lunch. I love the atmosphere here and just feel….relief. I’m where I’m supposed to be.
I haven’t weighed in at Weight Watchers for over a week. I went camping with my kids last week from Thursday to Sunday. The Saturday before (weigh-in is at 9:30 am), I had lost 2.6 pounds, for a total of 7.8! Last Wednesday (weigh-in is at 6:15), I had gained 1.8 pounds. I was, at first, very disappointed in myself. However, Jules reminded me that I was weighing in at the end of the day instead of my usual early morning, so that makes a difference. I am still worried about this Saturday’s weigh-in. Those four days of camping were hell on my stomach! I tried to eat healthy and stay away from the junk, but I don’t know what it is about camping that makes me want to just eat and eat. And eat. It must be all that fresh air. Plus, we walked everywhere.
I have been keeping track all this week and going for power walks at noon (4 kms in 40 minutes!), so I am hoping Saturday at least shows I stayed the same.
J is up here with me. He is doing a football conditioning camp to get him ready for this fall. It is really great to have some time alone with him. We can get along so well! We went to “Bad Teacher” last night. It was…………all right. Not quite as funny as I thought it was going to be, but not bad. The story line was a bit week and honestly, Cameron Diaz annoyed the shit out of me. Justin Timberlake’s performance wasn’t that great either.
So, not a big recommendation from me. I’m looking forward to “Horrible Bosses”. That also looks hilarious. Here’s hoping it lives up to its trailer.
