Oh well…

Well, I’m not quite as put out as I was yesterday – this morning I weighed in at 126.5kg, the same as I was the day before yesterday… but at least I didn’t go up again. If I had, I think my tears of annoyance and frustration would be shorting out the keyboard… 😉

We didn’t get to unpack any boxes today – I rang my gym place this morning to see when I was supposed to be there, and guess what!  It was at high noon… very neatly cutting the day in half… By the time we got home again after stopping off at the Vet to get some more pussy biscuits (kibble, really) for Flipper – it’s just around the corner from Bounce – dropped off some dry cleaning, and had lunch (an Optifast Cappuccino Bar for me – himself had a sandwich), it was really too late to start on the boxes… and besides, I had to work bloody hard today – I had to do my exercises at double time, and the stretch in my elastic thingy was made stiffer? harder?  I dunno, anyway, I had to work pretty hard… I reckon I’ll have a few sore muscles tomorrow… They’re still easy enough for lazy me to persevere with though 🙂

We’re still wondering what to do with the two Realms on Rift.  Should we move characters around? Consolidate the two Guild Banks? My… what important and life changing problems to overcome we have! :/ Anyone would think we didn’t have a life! 🙂 However, it’ll be back to the boxes in earnest tomorrow morning, so I guess these world shattering problems will have to wait a few more days.

Not really much more to add tonight – hopefully my weight will start going down again tomorrow (unless all the work I did today has turned the fat into muscle instead of just eliminating it!) Hmmmm… so, what’s the difference between a rock and the ocean?

Weight and sea… 😉

Enter rude words here…

[Please insert rude words here] I’m feeling a bit put out this evening – I went up a bit this morning to 126.6kg 😦 Perhaps I should take two of those 4000mg celery capsules… and drink less water, less tea, and less coffee (no sugar, low fat milk) :/ Oh well, let’s hope for a better result tomorrow morning…

Himself was right – we did start early on the boxes in the hall this morning… unfortunately there wasn’t all that much of interest in them this time – lots of ancient and yellowed pillow cases, which did go right in the “rubbish” box, lots and lots of himself’s work documents and papers from about ten or more years ago which will need to be shredded (ooo-er!  Lots of Top Secret stuff there!) 😉 A couple of books… and two surprises from my dim, dark past 🙂 An gen-U-ine silk Happy Coat, heavily embroidered, and a scarlet and bright yellow silk sash.  These, needless to say, did not go in the “rubbish” box – they will go off to the dry cleaners to be cleaned and prepared for vacuum storage – somewhere safe.  I remember my Nonno (my father’s father) bringing them back for me from a trip to the Orient – I would have been all of about five years old at the time, and quite thrilled with them – except for one thing.  I wasn’t allowed to play with them in case I damaged them! There was also a straw “coolie” hat, which I was allowed to play with, and maybe they were right in not letting me near the Happy Coat and sash… the straw hat lasted about a week and a half before it… umm… disintergrated, basically. And there was an old hand knitted jumper of Julian’s that will also go off to be cleaned and repaired.  One of the cats caught a claw in the neck and all the knitting there has unraveled… a bit…  I think it can be repaired, anyway.

There actually weren’t as many boxes as we’d thought there were and we were finished by lunchtime.  After lunch, himself taped up the rubbish boxes and loaded them into the car for a one way trip to the tip. After that, he went back to the storage bin for more boxes. We’re hoping to get onto those tomorrow, but it depends on what time my exercise “class” is – we forgot to write it down last time I was there so I’ll have to ring them first thing in the morning and find out. I’ve actually been very good with my exercises this week and have been (mostly) doing them every day… or so…  There’s only one I can’t do because I have nowhere to attach the elastic thingy to. Julian said we could use the door handles on the balcony doors, but I don’t feel comfortable using them.  I mean, I know I’ve lost a fair bit of weight already (nearly eight kilos), and the doors are steel, but I’d be pulling pretty hard on them and I just don’t feel comfortable doing that – what if I broke the doors, and Flipper got out on the balcony and wanted to chase a bird over the balcony railing?  We’re five floors up…. (so that conveniently gets me out of doing that particular exercise! *smug look*) 😉

Anyway, that’s about all from me this evening – more tomorrow night – hopefully with better news about my next weigh-in tomorrow morning! 🙂
