Stress Level -
My week could have been turned into a country song. My Grandmother's mass turned out to be non cancerous which was great news! On Thursday I turned 38 and in the middle of a birthday celebration my Grandmother had called 911 so back to the hospital we went. After 2 days she got to go home. Meanwhile, my childhood friend's father was on life support in the same hospital. Seriously! You can't make this stuff up. Today he is off life support and doing much better.

I was so upset about my gain and on frustration over load. I thought about the week and realized that I ate out 5 times this week. That NEVER happens!!!! I don't normally have the time or the money to eat out that many times in a week. My Mom and I went twice, then my hubs took me out for my birthday and on and on. Now I know where those pounds came from.

The UP side -
As long as I know where the extra pounds came from then I can pick myself up and dust myself off. I'm ready to kick it into high gear with the cardio. I'm going to see if that will help my situation. I went shopping over the weekend with my Mom. I could get into a smaller size which is good but I looked like I was wrapped up like a sausage which is bad. lol - At least I can see what is going on. I'm looking forward to this week now that everyone is well and my birthday extravaganza is OVER! - lol

I'm looking forward to reading how the rest of my "sistas" did this week.
And this is a little GLEE inspiration for all of this week!
