So, you may be wondering how I'm doing with the whole "diet" and "growth" thing. Well, it is a work in progress, but I feel that it is very manageable. I just stopped typing so I could take a moment to step on my non-digital scale; something seems weird. (I'm just going to put this out there, but I know I won't be able to take it back) It says that I weigh 200 pounds (with my clothes on), but I weighed 220 when I was 40 weeks pregnant; you may recall that I want to lose at least those 20 pounds slowly. I weighed myself like two days ago and it said 218, but now it reads 200. There is no way I lost 18 pounds in two days! The next to last time I stepped on the scale (weeks ago) it was weighing 80 pounds more than it should, I found out that the scale could be reset to 0 so that's what I did, and I weighed 220. Anyways, I am trying not so snack but we have some Cheez-It's that I've snacked on a little. I got a little off track over the weekend because we were busy, and I really didn't even eat much.
As far as growth goes, I have finally finished Genesis. I'm trying to make some time on the weekend, preferably on Sunday, to spend some time reading the Bible. I will admit that when I come across a list of somebody's ancestors, I just skip it, because I have found that it only confuses me, not to mention the fact that I can't even pronounce most of the names. I have somebody who is going to help me keep myself on track with reading, which is good.
On the morning show New Years Day, that "expert" I previously mentioned that you should make a list of things you are thankful for each day because if you do it every day there will eventually be less stress in your life. I may not do this every day, but here is my list of what I am grateful for today:
- Sharing the day with my monkey and dad
- Dad (he is a pretty good guy)
- That I am lucky to be able to take a vacation day to go with Dad to sell cattle
- I love my boys (M & YY)
- Smelling like cattle because it feels like home (I know, I'm weird but I don't care)
