Stalled, Stalling, to Stall
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
My weight loss has stalled. I am stalling making the changes that are needed to get it moving again. To stall is human.
I had a moment of clarity while blowdrying my greatly shortened tresses. My bathroom is small. As in friggin' tiny and actually the whole house feels like it's bursting at the seams. There I've said it. I've publicly conceded to the SO's point that perhaps we have one to many living beings for the size of our house... GULP - pride swallowed - he's right.
So now we gots to get the house ready to sell. The past couple of weeks have been all about list making and starting to check things off that list. Walking through your house completely objectively, really looking for what we'll politely call "Areas of Improvement" is depressing. Yikes! We really let stuff go that I never noticed. I was shocked at just how dirty my windows were when I actually looked at them. How could I not have seen that chipped trim?
In the past 10 days, we've met with an agent, had a window repaired, met with 2 drywall contractors, had a section of flooring repaired, the sewer access pipe cut down and started packing some of the non essentials away. We've changed out a light fixture, the front door knob, the ceiling fan and the screen door. Sadly the surface is barely scratched...
So I haven't done more than drive past my gym on the way to the hardware store and I've only looked longingly at my Pilates mat as I scoot it out of the way to get another box. The tempation to order take-away grows stronger every day but so far I've held it at bay. I'm not gaining weight, but it sure ain't going in the right direction either. And *ominous music plays* I've stopped drinking water. I've had about 3 cups in the last 2 days. It's getting colder and I'm tired and I want my coffee. Grasping the warm ceramic mug is soothing as I survey the chaos. The constant headaches are not so soothing however, so gradually I'll get back on the wagon.
