25 Days of Christmas Part 1

I've decided that one of the new traditions I want to start with the kids is to do something holiday related for the 24 days before Christmas.  Today was Day 1:

                                                                   Advent Calendars

Cupcake was so excited about these that she kept asking when we were doing them from the time she got home from school until she mysteriously disappeared to 185 lbs. house for dinner and when she came home I forgot all about it.  

Plus she ended up going to sleep early (she's been going to bed around 8pm and getting up at 6am ever since she got back from her cruise to Italy with 185 lbs. and his girlfriend).  While I can't complain about her new found sleep pattern (she was so NOT a morning person before, there were quite a few arguments about getting up for school in the past), it means that it sometimes throws me off.

So Cupcake and Snickerdoodle will be opening their box tomorrow morning, but Caramel did hers (she couldn't do it tomorrow anyway since she leaves for school at 6:40am and the other two--or at least Snickerdoodle right now--aren't awake at that point).

Where Have You Been?

Okay, that should be--where have I been?  

It's been a crazy month with a lot of ups and downs, but I'm optimistic that things are going to start stabilizing soon.  Only time will tell.

On the weight loss front, I'm at a stand still.  Mostly that's because I've fallen off the wagon.  I've been horrible about watching what I eat (thankfully I haven't gone full throttle like I've done in the past where I eat everything and anything in sight after failing at the diet) and haven't been doing great at the exercise either.  Thankfully I haven't gained any of the weight back, and I'm definitely keeping an eye on the weight to make sure that doesn't happen.  The past couple of days I've had a bit of depression, but I'm hoping that tomorrow will be better and I can get back on track with the eating AND exercising (I did walk 6 miles yesterday).

So to recap as of December 1 I weigh 160 lbs.  No pictures this month either because obviously nothing changed.
