That's the number that greeted me when I braved the scale this morning. I should probably be happy. It could have been worse. But I was just sad. Sad and there was a feeling of - what? Resignation?
And then I got my annual survey from the National Weight Control Registry. I went to the site and the first 2 question were "What was your weight 1 year ago?" "What is your weight today?"
When I entered those numbers the next questioned emerged: "WHY HAVE YOU GAINED WEIGHT?" It felt so judgmental!! I was embarrassed. Embarrassed by words on a computer screen!
I did my best to push this to the back of my mind. I cleaned out Archer's ear - including "milking" the tube to drain the blood. Newsflash - GROSS!! But the ear is already looking a ton better - I am hoping my baby is on the mend!!
I then took the boys for a brisk walk, raked up the chicken coop and added fresh bedding and picked what was left in the garden that was any good - a few tomatoes, a couple of remaining zucchini and - yay! - a whole bunch of spaghetti squash.
Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful fall day - sunny and high 50's. So Marc and I packed the bikes up tonight and are planning on heading down to ride a long trail followed by some apple picking at an orchard down there.
I am hoping for an ideal and fun day - where 10 pounds is as irrelevant as can be...
