March 4th, Curse You Sunday!

First, let me say that I don't like being told what to do, especially by a month!  March forth!  You march forth!

Second, yesterday was a crazy weird day so posting just wasn't going to happen.

Third, I got to witness a bridge implode yesterday!  It was the coolest thing ever!  I just stood about 30 feet from my house and watched it.  It took my breath away, knocked me back a few feet and felt like it went right through me.  I was still "feeling it" hours later.  The shaking knocked the smoke detector off the wall, the box of cereal fell over on the fridge, some pictures were sideways and the cats were freaked.  Click on the link to watch it.  You can hear people cheering and whooping in the video, I wasn't one of them, I was more in shock.

Down to business...
I saw my mom yesterday for the first time since starting to lose weight.  I'm stuck in a rut right now but I know it's muscle mass that I'm gaining.  Mom said you can tell around my waist, I agree. 

One way to tell if you are losing weight is to look at your hands.  My rings are very loose.  I shook my hand yesterday and my ring practically turned all the way around my finger.  Both rings are so loose that they stop at the first knuckle when I put my hands at my sides.  I think I have to take a link out of my watch as well.

It's still early in the day so tonight I am going to go walk and maybe work my way up to some jogging.

Thought of the day:
Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses and hope you don't get stung by a bee!

  1. Congrats on the progress! Being able to finally get my wedding ring off for the first time in years was such a huge milestone for me. I've managed to really hit it hard in the past, causing my finger to swell enough to concern me, so not being able to get it off was kind of frightening. I got to the point a little while ago that I had to resize a few of them as they had gotten way to big. It is one thing to see your clothes getting too big, but it really kind of a "wow" moment when the rings do that.
