Enough is enough.....I need to do this without a rut!!!

I didn't even get a chance to blog last week. Just more craziness!!! Daughter, hubby and kids were here again. They did not get the first house they wanted but they did put in an offer on a second home that they really liked (it's just a bit bigger than they wanted) and they got it!!! Yippeeee!! Inspection is Wednesday (we anticipate a few issues so we'll see). They also sold their house in PA last week! Another Yippee!!!! So although they still have quite a road ahead, they are moving and, so far, in a positive direction.
My dad is back in nursing home and the pain is diminishing. They have started some "easy" PT for him. However, since the fall he has been hospitalized twice to have the catheter surgically re-implanted (while medicated he pulled it out---and, yes, he did that 2 times!) He is not as disoriented. Spirits continue to be fairly good and he maintains his sense of humor. Love, love, love that man!!!
Last Friday (14th) I woke up. My left hand fell on my right upper arm. Holy moly!!! FAT!!!! I mean, OK, enough is enough!!! That was committment day for me. Fewer calories and more exercise!! So far, so good. The weight isn't falling away but I am getting a little more energy. I have been doing some walking and a bit of strength training. I slacked a bit this weekend but that's OK. Will be walking tomorrow morning!
I guess this craziness is my new normal for awhile so I need to figure out a way to just work through it. I am a bit disappointed that I don't seem to have lost an ounce this week but that's OK. Baby steps!
Thank you for all your support over the summer and this fall. It means so much to me to have so many people supporting me and caring about me.
Have a great week!
