Oh, that feeling of dread....

building as I wait for my in-laws to come. I still have to do all the vacuuming. We decided to just enjoy our long weekend and now I have to pay the piper.

I'm not going to weigh in at WW today. Don't have the $$ or the time. I weighed in at home and I'm down 0.3. Slowest weight loss EVER!!! I figure I'm 5lbs away from where I want to be. 5lbs. Feels like it may as well be a million. I guess I will have maintenance down pat if I loose this slow.....not much of a silver lining, but......have to take what I can get.

I went to the Club yesterday. Husband & daughter swam. Daughter got in the pool and swam a kilometer like nothing. Brat. I went up to do weights. It went well. The place was a tomb. Just the way I like it. ;-)

Running buddy cancelled today so I have to go on my own. I'm just waiting for my breakfast to digest a bit. It is nice and cool outside - so it should be a comfortable run. I just have to decide whether to take the dog or not. I don't want to end up having to walk anymore than my one minute rests.

I am going to make my Thai Chicken thighs for supper tonight. Daughter is quite excited. She loves that recipe. I just hope it isn't too much spice for the in laws. My FIL only likes salt & pepper. Sheesh.

OK, I've procrastinated enough. Off to vacuum. Blech.

Have a healthy day bloggers!


  1. Mmmm, Thai Chicken sounds awesome! If someone doesn't like it, he can eat sides!

    About your slow weight loss...that's the best kind! You're burning fat from the inside of your muscles first, and slow weight loss is more likely to stay off! I'm so proud of you! I'm still at 166.5. It's been months since I reached this number. Now I'm stuck. Of course, I'm not kicking serious ass like you are. Keep up the GREAT work!

  2. Hope your time with the inlaws isn't that bad!!

  3. Wouldn't want to share the Thai Chicken recipe would you? I need new ways to cook chicken.

    Hope your visit with the in-laws is a pleasant one.

  5. Oh, man! Bring ON the spices! I love it! My FIL, also...NO onions, NO garlic...jeez, that's the cornerstone of all my cooking! Well, have fun...

    I hate vacuming. We have to clean our house this weekend because we have family coming next weekend. Good luck on the in law visit.

  7. Mmm Thai chicken! Yummm... What's the recipe? My hubby is a thai freak. He loves Thai food but I've never tried to make it from home, we always order out (Boo us!)

    don't get discouraged about the weight loss, if it's coming off slow, it just means that it will stay off right? Those last 5-10 lbs are the hardest too but think of all the other wonderful stuff your doing for your body!? Exercising, eating healthy. I have to keep telling myself that those things mean more than a number on the scale.
