Loss: Yet one more lb. I'm only .5 lb loss away from having less than 100 lbs to go!!!
Despite my late night jog just before bed I slept like crap again last night. Snackers got up at 5 am this morning and his presence in the living room set Vladdy to barking and Kody to meowing so, to make matters worse, I was woken up at 5 am also and, despite 45 minutes of best effort, was unable to go back to sleep.
I'm really tired and would prefer to just go back to bed this morning as apposed to working and doing school work but I gotta do what I gotta do. I have next Monday off for the holiday and all I can say is thank the stars for that because I need it! It seems like I've worked every Saturday since the new boss took over and Sunday's consist of either spending the entire day running errands and cleaning the house or granting myself a day of rest and feeling guilty because errands need to be run and the house needs to be cleaned. I really freakin' miss having a maid BAD! As soon as I get into a house and have a month or two to acclimate to the new bills I am definitely going to find a way to put her back into the budget if I can because she was worth her weight in gold.
Snackers is working split-shifts again this week (night jobs) too so that is only going to make things worse and mean that I will have to step-up even more and carry the extra burden in the house. I understand and appreciate his night work but if I don't find a way to start getting more sleep and a better quality sleep I am seriously going to crack up. On the up-side I have been having a lot of positive mental moments when it comes to my weight and how much I've lost. I find myself looking in the mirror and just being stunned by the difference that I can see or putting on clothes fresh out of the wash and relishing in the fact that they fit loosely. Last night I was sitting in my recliner and realized that my hips no longer touch the insides of either arm on the chair and this morning I climbed up onto my smoking chair/bar stool and felt like it was a lot easier and less awkward than climbing on a bar stool usually is for me. My mind is in a positive place ... I just wish my sleep habits could be too.

Today was not a good day. I did nothing and I don't even want to talk about why.
