I am still a little sore, muscles hurt that haven’t hurt in awhile. But when I stepped on that scale this morning and it told me another pound was lost, all that soreness just seemed worth it.
When I started this journey earlier this year, I was 335 pounds. I am now 303 pounds. Lowest I have been in awhile. PCOS makes it really hard for me to lose weight, but Paleo and running, well they are helping me kick each pound to the curb, where it belongs. I can’t wait to go out running again, which I am hoping will be on Wednesday, after I pick up our poor puppy who is getting fixed that day. No puppies in this house thank you very much!
I got home yesterday to a very excited husband and dogs who had obviously missed the heck out of me while I was house sitting. The yard looked beautiful, the husband had spent the whole day raking, sweeping and hosing it down. Why, well because I had mentioned how nice it was to sit on my Mom’s patio drinking espresso. So he cleaned up the yard so I could do that this weekend with my brand new espresso machine we are picking out tonight. What a great guy right?
Also, before I had left, I had asked the husband a few questions, about a few issues that we had been having between us. By Sunday, he was ready to chat and to my surprise had spent the whole weekend thinking about things. Nothing major, just we are so busy trying to make a life, we forgot about our marriage and it has been getting a little neglected. So we spent the night, re connecting. We spend so much time balancing work, school and chores, sometimes it can feel like we: A- never see each other and B- are more like roommates than a couple. We had just forgotten how important it was to spend time as a married couple, talk, feel that connection with each other again. I was mostly surprised though that he was so willing to talk to me about it all, maybe I should run away for the weekend more often. 😉
So after a long chat, we made dinner together (something we use to do a lot but don’t do anymore)…
