Hmm... growing AND shrinking

Not a lot of time to post, so I'll just get right to it.

STATS for April 29, 2010:
Bevin weighs 173.7 lbs. (DOWN 1.6 lbs. from last week!)

My measurements:
Neck: 13.75" (DOWN 0.25" from last time)
Bust: 41.5" (DOWN 0.25" from last time)
Waist: 39.75" (UP 1.25" from last time)
Hips 41.25" (DOWN 0.5" from last time)

Weird, huh?  I lost weight, and lost fractions of inches everywhere but my waist, where I actually went up by quite a bit!  The only thing I can imagine is that maybe the measurement is off because I just finished supper?

Anyway, Bailey and I have been doing a paper route everyday, but it doesn't have as much walking as I thought it would.  Today I finally got off my butt and started doing Wii Fit again.  My body loves movement, but for some reason I resist it.  Maybe it's a throwback to elementary school gym class where I learned that my body sucks and I suck, too? 

Anyway, I hope this movement helps me feel better.  I live with a constant level of stiffness in my joints that I've come to accept as normal.  Doctors can't find anything wrong with me, and I felt like this when I was stick thin, too, so I think it's just how I am.  I have a relative who has the same symptoms, only worse.

Well, enough disjointed random blogging.  Time to get back to my baby.

Okay, okay.. I'm back.

Things are changing big-time, and I haven't been able to wrap my head around that, so exercising and keeping track of my progress has not been a priority.

I was really dreading weighing myself today because I was worried I'd weigh a LOT more than I did before, but it wasn't as bad as I feared.  It's not great either, but that's okay.

STATS for April 18, 2010:
Bevin weighs 175.3 lbs. (UP 4 lbs from March 7.  But still down from January 1st's high of 189 lbs.)

My measurements:
Neck: 14" (no change)
Bust: 41.75" (up 0.75" from March 7)
Waist: 38.5" (up 0.5" from March 7... that's it!  Yay!)
Hips: 41.75" (up 1.25" from March 7... ah, so that's where it's hiding.)

You may have noticed that Steve has not been mentioned yet.  Not to worry, things are fine in our relationship, but he IS gone.  He moved to Edmonton last week to start a new job that pays a lot more, and we will all be following as soon as possible.  I'm not too thrilled about moving to the land of wintertime, but it will be nice to live in a bigger city with more things to do.  In the meantime I am holding down the fort with the kids, packing our things, and missing Steve terribly.  :(

Well, that's it for this update.  Sorry it's short!

Sunday Update: Poor baby! Ocean can't win.

Poor Ocean has a cold.  We were worried that it was an ear infection but happily that was not the case.

He's extra needy today, so the pictures will be posted tomorrow or Tuesday.

Steve weighs 184.1 lbs (down 0.4 lbs since last week.)

Bust:  41" (down 0.5" since last week)
Waist: 38.25" (down 0.5" since last week)
Hips: 40.5" (down 0.5" since last week)

Sunday Update: Meh.

Okay, I've been dealing with a cling-on baby ever since he got sick and I can't seem to get any workouts in.  Hell, I can't even put him in the grocery cart for more than 10 minutes at a time these days.

Anyway, this is such a tiny blip in his life that I'm not going to complain about it anymore.  The day will come too soon that he doesn't want to be held anymore.

STATS for February 28, 2010:
Bevin weighs 172.6 lbs. (UP 2.4 from last week.)

Steve weighs 184.5 lbs. (down 0.5 from last week)

My measurements:
Neck: 14" (no change)
Bust: 41.5" (up 0.5" from last week -- but remember I'm breastfeeding so this measurement is not likely to ever be accurate.)
Waist: 38.75" (UP 0.75" since last week. Eek!)
Hips: 41" (UP 0.25" since last week. Eek! Eek!)

Like the new hair?  I'm super happy with it.  :D  Also, this appears to be my standard Sunday shirt, lol.

Sunday update: We got sick again. :(

That was the worst Valentine's Day EVER.  Okay, the whole day wasn't bad, but since the highlight was getting puked on by Ocean, I'm calling the whole day a loss.

Yep, poor Ocean got sick for the first time on V-Day.  It was gastroenteritis, and he was up barfing almost all night and into the next day.  And the next day Steve caught it!  And the day after that, Bailey and I caught it!

Anyway, we're better now.  I'm feeling the same aversion to food that I did in January, but that's fine with me.

STATS for February 21, 2010:
Bevin weighs 170.2 lbs (down 5.7 lbs!  Earlier in the week I was actually down to 168.9 for a couple days.)
Steve weighs 185.0 lbs (down 3.1 lbs!  Earlier in the week he was a bit lighter, too.)

My measurements:
Neck  14" (no change)
Bust    41" (down 1")
Waist  38" (down 1")
Hips 40.75" (down 1")

Holy cow, my shirt is way looser than it was a month ago.  Yay!

And look at Steve's tummy... wait, where is it?

Sunday update: Not melting so very much anymore...

Happy Valentine's day!
Okay, I fell off the wagon.  Special Lady Time will do that to you, (thanks Shelley for the awesome terminology.  I've totally stolen it.)  but did you know that Lindt makes chocolate with fleur de sel?  I love a touch of salt when I have sweets and this was soooo good.  How could I resist?

Steve is doing well, though, so yay for him!

STATS: for February 14, 2010:

Okay, we're not a LOT smaller, but we're not doing too badly considering we both fell of the exercise wagon for a few days this week.  We moved our living room furniture around last weekend and hurt our muscles.
