I promise I have not abandoned my blog. I have just been unusually busy the past several days. It's been the kids of days where I get up and start going and don't stop until I'm too exhausted to do anything else. I've had flute lessons, Temple trips, play dates, Home Parties, and various other activities to attend. On Friday nigh we went to Boo at the Zoo. The kids had a great time. I was worried because it was drizzling when we got there but it turned out great. My feet got pretty wet but it wasn't too cold (we had lots of layers on) and the kids had so much fun. We went inside and they had lots of booths set up where the kids could get candy and the adults would get flyers from each company. They had everything from Sams club, to Skyzone, to swimming lessons, and even dentists.
Today was my sister's 17th birthday party. I didn't do too well staying out of desserts, but I didn't go nuts and make myself sick either. I had one piece of cake and one scoop of ice cream. My mom made a special salted caramel cheesecake for Chase for her birthday and it was Amazing.
My weight has been hovering around 153, and my goal now is to be able to 'effortlessly' keep it there. Once I stop the up/down/up/down cycle and feel more confident with controlling what I'm eating and I feel like I have found a place where I am stable and eating generally well most of the time, then I will be ready to start tackling weight loss again, and this time I am going to do it by making a few small adjustments at a time.
