Phew! The past few days have been a whirlwind. On Monday my husband and children got into a car accident. Everyone is fine now, but it was scary. My littlest vomited afterwards so we were concerned about a head injury, so we headed off to the doctor just in case. The eldest went on to school while we handled all the towing and paperwork. Then, the oldest came home with a fever and sore throat. He's still sick, so he's going to earn himself a trip to the pediatrician too. The car, on the other hand, is not looking so hot. The back bumper and fenders are crumpled, the headlights are off, the truck is stuck open and the back windshield shattered. It's a 2004 model, so its not-so-new, and I'm really afraid that they are going to total it. Buying a new car is just not in the cards at the moment. It's possible, but not optimal.
In other news, weigh day was yesterday and I hit 30lbs lost! WhoooooHOOOOOOO!!!!! This weight is creeping off, I mean creeping off, but I'll take it! According to sparkpeople (my bible for all things weight loss), I'm on track to be below a serious milestone number by December 31, which would be AMAZING.
Ok, I need to give a couple of shoutouts. First to Deb, who left me a comment on a past post and directed me to her blog and her "football post." I thought I'd been following Deb all along, but that she just hadn't been posting much. Turns out, I wasn't following her. So, when I went over to her blog, I had catching up to do! For anyone who is struggling with weight loss right now, the football post is a must read! Thanks, Deb for posting and and directing me there when I needed it! The other cool thing is that, when I went to Deb's blog recently, I saw that she gave me a blog award!! Thanks, Deb! That was very sweet. I promise that it'll be my next post!
Also, Weight Watcher Wannabe, your guacamole recipe is AWE.SOME. I made it two days ago, and it's really really tasty. It's slightly embarrassing to admit, but the guac and some whole wheat pita chips made up my dinner Monday night. I didn't eat ALL of it, but I could! It's awesome on a morningstar farm black bean burger! Anyone who likes guac, try this!
So, there are other shoutouts that I want to do, but, seeing as I have a blog award to give out, I'll do it then :)
