Checking In

I'm alive.  I am trying to get motivated, but when life hands you lemons, you don't always want lemonade.  So, I am working, networking and discussing with the hubby on good relocation places.  We are open to relocating, but trying to find a city with jobs (somewhat difficult) and decent cost of living (I know we are asking for a lot here).  If we are going to do it, we need to do it while our daughter is young and since he is unemployed and we have possible bites on our house, we really don't have anything keeping us here.

I'm still doing the 1/2 marathon on the 25th.  My training was bumpy with two bouts of bronchitis, but even if I have to walk it, I'm going to finish it.  My weight has stalled big time and I keep gaining and losing the same 5-10lbs over and over.  It happens in a matter of days too...In 3 days I can lose it and then in 3 days, it comes back on.  I need to focus on my weight loss again, start blogging and logging my food.  It would give me one thing in my life that I can control.

The weather here sucks too.  It is gloomy here in the northwest but that is okay for now, but I do want sun soon.  The weather is another reason I'm seriously contemplating relocation.  Maybe a sunny location?

I hear you about losing the same 5 pounds over and over again. All you can do is keep at it.

Thanks everyone for the thoughts and well wishes. I need to get my head back in the weight loss game, so blogging will help me with that. Too bad I'm not one to take pictures of everything I eat.
