I have gone back to keeping a food journal, discovering that, as always, I actually CAN lose weight if I keep track of my daily calories. Looking back over successful weight loss bursts, I have always kept a food journal during those times, and the weight loss stopped whenever I did. This is a "duh" moment. So I actually lost two pounds this week, yay, me. Unfortunately that puts me back to where I was before the surgery, so I'm basically at the starting gate again. Let's see if I can keep it up.
Rain! It rained again today, and basically all day. It's been almost like a real winter this year. Totally awesome. With more snow in the high country. This is absolutely of the good. One year of good snowfall won't solve the drought, but it certainly helps.
We had hoped to do something this weekend, since Barb already had President's Day off and I took it off, too, so we could, but we're SO BROKE it probably won't happen. My mom gave me a little money so I could get a plane ticket to join her in Vegas again in a few weeks, and there was some left over, but I splurged on some Valentine gifties rather than saving it. I'm so horrible. But my bonus comes in my third paycheck this month - and I hope I can stretch it out to pay for a) the next surgery, b) taxes, and c) giving some money to pay for the ol' dog surgery. Durned expensive pup. BUT bills are paid, and that's the important thing.
I made Thai fried rice this evening. Came out pretty well, all things considered, and lower in calories than I expected, really. Just a couple tablespoons of oil and eggs, brown rice, lean pork, onions, and I threw in some peas, as well.
I was too tired this morning to get up and go to the gym. Oops. Of course, I asked a great deal of my foot yesterday, walking around in four-inch heels. It was a little sore this morning.
Still waiting on the surgery center to return my money (they were double-paid by me and my insurance) so I can pay the doctor's office. Stupid medical stuff. They better not screw up my credit, I've worked so hard to fix it. Grr.
