I lost .8 pound today.  I am so pleased! My weekly weight loss was 3.6 pounds.

I am getting really close to the turn of a new digit.  My mother is already like “ha, ha, yeah that’s great!” while she’s refining her diet.  Exactly as I knew she would.  She’s so funny.  She’s lucky I love her and she’s awesome, because that competitive thing would be unbearable otherwise.

We received some good mid-term news and a new deal on which to work.  I awoke having dreamed of kicking BP’s ass all night long, so I spent this morning pondering what career I might enter.  Honestly, I love what I do now, I just need to better shape the balance of hourly to contingency or close a couple of the larger contingencies deals so I can no longer have to worry about earning an income.  Or marry a prince.  Whatever.

I also spent the day worrying about the cat.  She’s less active off the pain medication and she’s not eating as she should.  Her gait improves hour by hour and she’s barely limping at all.  She just refuses to walk unless absolutely necessary.  Every few hours, I carry her from one room to the next and then make her walk back to the bed.  She walked around outside for a bit, and I will definitely repeat that tomorrow.  Of course, she did not walk around later on when I brought her outside, but I will just keep trying.  Kitty physical therapy sucks.

I ended up working all afternoon and evening with my mother on her project, so I am exhausted and accomplished very little of my own tasks.  It’s fine though  — I scheduled very little since I am supposed to be traveling over the next three weeks.

Weight Loss — 0.8 pounds

That’s a huge loss.  I daresay I have lost all the bloat.  I am very pleased and hoping that I will keep seeing those numbers drop for the next couple of weeks until pms temporarily derails my progress again.  I’d love to drop 4 pounds over the next two weeks and be at 136 when I start pms again.  That would be a blast.  Since I am getting close to the end, I know my weight loss should be slowing considerably.

Food Intake — 754.02 cal — 8.41 carb

I did not keep close track, since I was on the phone for hours and hours all day with my mom, with F, with a new client, and with an old client.  That means I did not pay enough attention to eating enough.

Exercise — None! — Argh!

I have to put the blame on my mother here.  She kept me working far later than I intended.  It’s aggravating, but we finally finished her project and she’s submitting it tomorrow.  That’s worth a break from exercise.  Also, I cannot do pilates until the period subsides, so there it is.
