The standard things

I had things in my head to put down on paper, well you know what I mean, but I once again have forgotten them all. They were brilliant.

I am worried about my friend Mary Beth(@skanickadee) this week for some reason.  I just keep thinking she needs a little smiling. If the timing on my husbands trip were a little different I think I would drive up to Mary Beths on Saturday morning so we could hang out for a bit. Well, if my husbands trip gets moved around maybe I will. probably not though.

This week was the restart of working out. Monday I rode my bike and then later went to Yoga. Today I went to the YMCA and did 30 minutes on the elliptical. Uhg….I have no muscle.  I was using the see no evil, hear no evil of weight loss maintenance during these few months of bone healing. So I finally stepped on a scale yesterday to see how bad it was. Gained eight pounds. I have gained and lost this particular eight pounds so many times in the last year and half. I stick at 134. *YES, GASP! I typed my weight. So that’s where I am back to.I would like to be under 120, so my only real goal is to lose 15 pounds.

I’ve been having a very good and happy digestive system the last four days. YAY! Being able to eat anything I want will cause an immediate weight gain, but then a big old loss once I can get back onto nice and healthy fruits and veggies. Mostly veggies, I’m not a big fruit eater. One bite at a time. Probably about 18 more months of healing.  We can do it.

*I was just talking to my husband about his trip and told him that if it gets switched around again and he leaves at 4am on Saturday I would probably drive up to Chicago. He is going to China so I really need to be here when he leaves, and he told me that he is actually flying TO Chicago from here, then to China. He’ll check and see if driving to Chicago on Friday would work then I would just drive him to the Airport. How nice is he? Like I said, probably won’t work out, but it’s always nice when people are helpful like that.


That is the excitement of Tracy world today, pretty boring and stable. Maybe everyone could send some happy thoughts Mary Beths way. Picture 70’s cartoon flowers and smiley faces flying through the air to her. 🙂
