Life got in the way

Boston aquarium and an excuse to show of my man’s sexy arm ūüėČ

It happens. ¬†September arrived, and with it a flurry of activity and emotions. ¬†We started our new fall work schedules (a new schedule that ¬†I LOVE, but was a big change nonetheless), Jessi headed back to UMaine, Sean started 8th grade, Mom came for a surprise visit, we went on our long-awaited long weekend to Boston…….. etc etc etc…..

All were WONDERFUL excuses to not count points and stick to Weight Watchers.  I CAN proudly say that I have continued to exercise!  Yay me!

But now I am at a crossroads of sorts. ¬†I am not feeling WW at all. ¬†I have considered going back to low-carb for awhile. ¬†But honestly…. as of this moment. ¬†I am just feeling sticking to exercise and trying to be more mindful about what I stuff in my face and why I am doing said stuffing.

Speaking of WHY…. ¬†Nicole (bff) and I were talking about all my yearly autumn drama
Nicole: Why ARE you such a mess every year at this time?
Me: ¬†I don’t fucking know… ¬†because everything changes and it’s really busy and irritating.
Nicole: Hmmmm…. I think there is more to it then that. ¬†When did your father leave?
Me: Holy shit.
Nicole:  :::::mic drop:::::

Now I have no idea if she is really onto something, but who knows? ¬†Talking with my mom about it, she thinks that if there is a connection there, it would also include moving to Maine a few months beforehand and leaving behind my entire life in Connecticut. ¬†And even if they ARE related, I need to learn to manage my behavior no matter WHAT the reason is for engaging in said behavior. …
Or maybe just work on being less crazy in general.  LOL NAH!!!!  What fun would THAT be!!??

And now some pics from the past couple weeks adventures…..
Sangria and a visit from Mom, which also included an unexpected lovely weekend at a cottage in Northport, Maine.

ONE DIRECTION!!!!  (Yes I am a 13 year old in a forty-something body.)
Jessi’s “new” car and back to school

Sassy new hair… that husband hated. ¬†(“It’s so STRAIGHT? ¬†Where’s my wild-haired girl??”)¬†

Nothin’ to it but to KEEP DOIN’ IT!!!
