Once upon a time....

There was a girl ... let's call her, well, Karen ... you know, since she's me and that's my name and all.

Karen had a blog that she absolutely loved called Babyfat Go Bye-Bye.

She had her shit together. Mostly.

Things started going all "meh" with life and the blog was one of the first casualties. And the one after that. And the one after that. So on and so forth.

Nothing ever felt quite as right as that first blog did.

Life continued to become increasingly "meh" over the years and the only trusted standby was no longer there to fall back on.

I know, I know .... it's just a blog .... just a name .... but it was more than that.

And it's coming back.

The original url has been claimed by some foreign derp who has done nothing with it ... but no matter. I'm becoming increasingly flexible, after all.

So the plug is being pulled yet again ...

And the shit will once again come together at the resurrected Babyfat Go Bye-Bye.

I'm sorry. I'm so so sorry.

It's been far too long since I've checked in and I'm sorry. I'm so so sorry.

There's been so much going on and I've been meaning to ... really ... but then something comes up and then something else and some of it amazing and some of it potentially absolutely devastating ... and such is life.

HOWEVER, all in all I'm actually doing pretty great. The scale is still going down and the steps have been going (for the most part) way up.

Any day now I plan on adding a dvd or something to the walking, especially since later today I plan on signing up for my first HealthyWage bet. I've been hemming and hawing over how much for how long but I think I've got it figured out. It'll be a lot of hard work but it'll be worth it and the payout will definitely come in handy. I'll give you all the details once they're nailed down!

Well then ...

Weighed in when I woke up this morning ... and saw the lowest number I've seen since NOVEMBER. 5 pounds lower than a month ago ... 10 pounds lower than April ...

I kind of feel like leaving for work early enough tonight to be able to walk to the bus hub and skip the first bus I normally get on before transferring.

Momentum is a happy thing and Lord knows I need as many of those as I can get!

What the funk???

I had a handful of really good days. I walked. I spent quality time on thee ol' recumbent. I ate well. And then I got the funk and tonight is feeling funkier than most. I don't want to read in spite of (or maybe because of) the dozens of books that need reviewing for the other blog. I can't focus on watching anything -- not even my beloved Supernatural or any of the movies on Shudder. I've got Doctor Who on now because I've seen them all so many times that I really don't have to pay attention and at least it makes things a little less lonely albeit still funktastic. I was briefly giddy about some live music events going on here Thursday & Friday that I thought would be fun to take John to .... until I checked the weather and both days are supposed to be utter crap. So I'm whiney and cranky and more than a wee bit crampy on top of it all (which I'm sure isn't helping the funk .... stupid stupid hormones).


I should go read something. I've got just over 2 hours left to my shift and according to Kindle app, the next book on my to-do list should take about 4 hours to read so I may be able to knock about half of it out if I don't get many distractions. Of course, the distractions may be welcome ....
