Back on track

I've felt like I'm falling behind lately. Like no matter what I do, I can't get ahead. I'm in my 4th week of this quarter but felt like I have accomplished next to nothing for school. What with working, cleaning, laundry, grocery in general......who has time for anything?

I started off this quarter off kilter anyway, not getting my books until the 2nd week, and I've felt time flying by since then. I feel like I'm getting back on track though. I did finish two of my patho quizzes and finally got around to finishing a rather easy paper that I just put off and put off. I looked at the timelines for my classes and am surprisingly, not that far off.

On the weight loss front, I finally match that weight I have listed down there for July. ;op With a trip to Kentucky in August, then Savannah and Tennessee in September, the numbers on the scale were creeping back up. I have been fighting with the same 4 pounds since July and thankfully, have finally beat them. For now. Needless to say, I am still one pound away from my second goal of 165. I am under my pre Teagan weight though. Woohoo! It's like I only had 3 kids. Sort of.

I went shopping a couple weeks ago because I saw some really cute boots in Kohl's ad, and who couldn't use a new pair of cute boots? While I was there I eyeballed a pair of size 12's and thought what the heck, they can only be too tight. Would you believe they weren't tight? They weren't even a little snug! They fit perfect! Have I mentioned I love Lee's comfort waist band jeans? Love them!

It's funny, I never really paid attention to the fact that my pants were a little loose, probably because those last 4 pounds were teasing me. Now that I have a smaller size, it's really noticeable, the rest of my jeans are loose.

Not quite ready to get rid of them though. Not sure I've seen the last of those last 4 pounds.
