Julie's Journey

A small setback

I did my official weigh in. I am up 4 pounds (it was 6 yesterday!!!!) I need to get back on track. I am still a bit suprised by the gain. I know I didn't make the best food choices in MI, but I didn't go crazy eating. I was on liquids the last 6 days, for Petes sake!!! Oh well, it is over and done with. Though suprised, I accept the weight is there, and I just need to get back on track to get it (and the rest) off.

I really need to start walking. I have avoided it so far, since I have such problems with my left knee. It hurts pretty much all the time. It trys to go out of socket a lot (it's sad when you can honestly say your knees go out more than you do!) I am just afraid of tripping over something, my knee going out, and not being able to get up on my own. Especially if Kayleigh is with me. I have a smallish window of good weather here. I will try to get out and walk today. I also would like to get some Richard Simmons videos to work out to. I have one somewhere on VHS, but I really need them on DVD so I can hook Kayleigh's little player to the TV downstairs. I was doing OK with my loss going to the rec center and swimming/doing old folks aerobics 2/3 X a week, but feel I should get something going the other days.

I have a J-O-B interview tomorrow. They are open 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM (I was a bit shocked....I didn't even know there were 2 sixes in each day!!!!) Anyway, this is going to be somewhat problematic for us (assuming I get the job, that is) Kayleigh goes to Pre/K M-W-F from 12:30-3. This is when I go to the gym. Not to mention the logistical problem of getting her there every day. Oh well, I better not count my chickens....

On a different subject... we went to K-Marts the other day. I was quite suprised to see they have a junior plus department. About time. My only question is where were they when I was a fat kid/teen/20 something? I got myself a cute sweater there.

I will post when I hear something about the job.

Later all, and thanks for joining me on my journey ...

Hey Jules, I hope all went well with the job interview. Don't worry about the weight gain, it's a back and forth thing and you'll be ok. Hope Kayleigh is feeling well these days.
