Wow I can't believe it has actually been over 3 months since my last post after I lost my Precious PEACHES! I can't tell you how heartbroken STILL that she is gone now. I truly miss her so much.
OK Moving on. I will let you know what's been going on in my life.
My job is fine. Since our office moved to West Covina, I have been going in early - at 7:30am and leaving between 4-4:30. Now that the time has changed, it is very dark by the time I get home for myself and my furry RAT boys to take our daily walk. But you know me, I still go anyway - with my cell phone in my hand with the flash light app on so I can see. Hubby keeps telling me to take along a golf club, but I always forget it. I seem to always run into coyotes a lot over here in this neighborhood cause we live kind of close to the mountains.
I am turning 57 on Jan 3rd and finally stopped having my monthly this year. I think my last one was in the very beginning of February. Since then I have had bad insomnia along with all the other fabulous symptoms that come along with pre-menopause. I am trying to deal with that the best I can.
I take a handful of vitamins every morning and still eat as healthy as I can considering the circumstances. I am not as Rigidly Strict as I was while I was losing all my weight. I still won't have a cheat day or cheat meal, but I do indulge in more bites that before.
My weight since losing has always been between 145-150 which is perfect for my height of 5' 7" but since I started Menopause my weight has now been between 150-155 which is still fine, but I still like it better the other way.
After my Peaches died, we got Gizmo to keep Conan company. Let me tell you it is quite different having 2 little Yipping Rats in the house. They are not as easy to train and control as a big dog. They are just TOO DAMN FAST! LOL
So in August I came home to a flood and everything got all turned upside down in our home. We decided that since the walls were half way taken off because of the wet drywall that we would just tear the walls down and make it one big open room with an Island which I have always wanted.

So it has been a big mess and it is very difficult to try to eat healthy since we are eating from the master bathroom. I have my toaster oven and coffee maker on the counter and our microwave in another bedroom and the fridge in the garage.
I went WAY different with new porcelain tile wood-look floors and new almond color cabinets.
I see the home Stretch in our near future - hopefully will be done in the next few weeks.
In the meantime - I am eating as healthy as I possible can out of the microwave.
I DO miss all the interaction we all used to have here. Please everyone - CHECK-IN and tell us all how you are doing, Bad or Good.
As always - thanks for listening and have a good one.
Keep on BFC'n :-)
