Happy New Year

Hi everybody…thought I’d just pop on & say happy new year & share 1 of my Christmas presents because it’s awesome!  Anyone who has been following me for a while knows all about Duncan, the furbaby I had to put to sleep a couple of years ago.  Well I splurged this year & got me a CuddleClone of him & it couldn’t have turned out better!  So Thank you to them & thanks to all of you & I so hope everyone has a good New Year!

Workout motivator? *giggles*

I was looking on my SparkPeople page this morning & found this & *laughs* had to share.  Cause I know even if it’s camera tricks & people tricks, it made me giggle so of course I had to share!

Hugs to all & hope you’re having a great weekend…& a special thanks to those who commented on my rant a couple of weeks back…it meant the world to me!

Random post out of nowhere

I just had a few thoughts I wanted to put down on here so I could come back & look at them later.

Firstly, I just stood up from my desk chair to get something from the kitchen & had made it 3 steps before realizing I’d stretched & then walked straight on in there instead of stretching then having to sit back down for a few seconds like I normally did.  I like that idea because it is a very obvious sign of improvement so yays!

Secondly, Mother’s Day morning in fact, I realized I’m only 8 years younger than my mom was when she died.  I’d never stopped to think about it but…her being dead for 18 years last month…that was just kind of a big surprise.  And another reason for me to keep working on my weight & getting better so I don’t end up in the same miserable boat she did.

Thirdly, it’s been a rough few days missing Duncan.  I know it’s been almost 8 months since he was put to sleep but for some reason the last week or 2 has been worse than it’s been since before Christmas.  I miss him & wish he could’ve made it to his 20th birthday back in March but he’ll always be my furbaby wherever he may be & I hope he remembers me half as good as I remember him.

Random topic for the week

Yays best friends since she just gave me a number so I could do this *laughs*

If you could bottle one moment in time what would it be?

It would be of the 1 time I can remember when I had Duncan sleeping on my arm, Nicky right behind my head, Sammy laying by my tummy, & my kid’s butt against mine since he was sleeping in my room because of a big storm.  That was a perfect time because I had my closest family right there with me & I wouldn’t trade it for anything…even now when it makes me cry.

Pic of the week 7

It’s been a very odd week this week so I don’t have much to choose from for pics but here’s a picture of the stuffed cat my dad let me get after I had to put Duncan to sleep last Sept.  I took him to work with me the other day because I had to go to the doctor before work & get blood drawn & needed the comfort since it’s wicked hard to draw blood from me.  And while I was sitting there, talking to a friend, I was posing him & she thought this 1 was funny so I decided to take a picture of it, & am now sharing it!  Woohoo *laughs* the fun of being a little sometimes.  Hugs to all & have a great weekend!

This week’s update

This week has had alot of ups & downs that’s for sure.  As I said last week I got a new scale & was pleasantly surprised that my weight gain according to it…since I think it’s in better shape than the old 1 & more accurate…was less than I was expecting so that made me a very happy woman.  Been a struggle to eat right again but have only had to stand in the corner once this week so that’s an improvement.

Had a rough few days earlier this week because for some reason…out of nowhere…Duncan’s death hit me hard again.  So hard I ended up crying myself to sleep Friday night.  But maybe that’s what I needed because I’ve only had the urge to hold his urn & cry once since so maybe I just needed that for some reason.  I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months already as it is.  But thanks to good friends & caring people I’ve made it thru much better than I ever expected so huggies to everyone.

Secondlife has been almost nonexistent this week because I’ve been on WoW or watching TV.  I ran out of my stories to read so had to find something else to do.  And WoW has been good if frustrating this week…especially this weekend.  I have now accomplished my goals for this expansion.  I said before we even found out that Garrosh was going to be the final raid boss that I was gonna kill that fecker if I could & damn if I didn’t last night.  True, it would’ve been nice to get the heirloom weapon too but…I got the flipping cloak thanks to my kid & killed Garrosh just like I said I was going to & even just leveled another character to 90 about 5 minutes ago…a druid of all things…so for me I feel like things have kind of come around full circle.  my very first character was a Tauren druid & I failed so bad at her…& even tho this 1 was a night elf druid…I did it….I got her ass to 90 & it feels good.  *chuckles*

I even managed to write a little this week so that was good.  Now I just have to get this fight scene done with & I should be good to go. *chuckles*  Thanks everyone for listening & for the support & huggies to all of you once again!

Here we go

Ok…first update…let’s see how this goes.  First off…have actually done better with my eating I think.  The having to stop & take a picture if it’s over my already done menu is doing some good I think so that’s a plus.  And I have managed to lose 3 lbs this week so I’m doubly happy for that.  My Weight Watchers online tracker is griping at me for losing more than 2 lbs a week but I know me & it does happen occasionally…I’ve not made myself go without to make it happen so I’m good with it.

Also still have a few profiles up here & there & been on SL a bit…have met a few people but nothing to get excited about so far as I’ve barely talked to most of them.  I’m not holding my breath or even imagining it’s going somewhere but I do like & need to meet new people so still trying it all the same.

I also…with the help of my darling child *laughs* am on the next to the last batch on WoW for my legendary cloak.  have about 4 weeks to get it so I just hope I can cause if not I think I’ll just break down & cry after us working so hard to get it.

Other than that…not much has happened…had a few times where I thought I saw Duncan out of the corner of my eye but I figure that will happen for weeks or months still.  Right now I have his urn sitting on my desk so at least he’s there for good…even if not right in the middle like he was.  Been staying at work more to get out of the house some, & my best friend came over for chicken & noodle/TV watching day so that was good too.  Am tired of the rain but happy about it being cooler inside so just kind of seeing how things go all around right now.  Huggies to everyone & have a good week!

Decision time

I have decided what to do about my instagram account & my dieting.  I will start preplanning my days, & I’ll only post pictures of what I eat that’s over what I’ve preplanned…so pretty much just my snacks or extras…or if I change something at the last minute.  Will also be doing weekly updates & I think I’ll post some kitty pictures as well just for fun & since *laughs* I seem to have so many of them. I’m also going to try & do at least a once weekly update on here of everything…weight loss, my little adventures & search for someone to share them with me, just life in general.  Might be good for me so we’ll see how it goes.   Thank you again for all the support & comments. *smiles* And here’s the address for anyone who wants to check things out.  http://instagram.com/gwynniegirl72

Ended up undoing it because it just wasn’t working but didn’t want to delete the whole post either.
