Where has the week gone?

I suddenly looked up and realized it had been a week since I blogged. How does that happen? I spent most of the weekend knitting and putting away glassware (almost done) so that was fun. This week has been a blur!

My partners are both busy this week and suddenly our geriatric care got busy. It has been wonderful getting to help people but totally not what I had planned for the week. Plus I had to get all of our accounting and billing caught up. I never can figure out why that takes so much time for such a small business. On the other hand, everything is entered, reconciled and paid.

I'm spending 18 hours this week evaluating solar energy proposals for the school district. No, I know nothing about solar energy. I was asked, as a school board representative, so that the committee would have people from all levels of the district. Solar is awesome - and I'm all for making our schools more "green" but we have to find a proposal that makes good financial sense as well. It keeps my brain spinning plus I get to eat lunch in the teacher's lunchroom every day :-)

Monday I started Weight Watchers online. I want to get healthier so I can keep up with Rowan. Someone asked me today if Weight Watchers works for me and I said "Yes, all three times". I'm always amazed at how little sense of portion control I have. Measuring food is such a shocker. "That really is 3 ounces of meat?" Um - I've been eating twice that much. We won't even go in to the chips and ice cream.

I've never done the online version but just couldn't see adding in another meeting during the week. I do everything else online (well not EVERYHING) so figured I'd give it a try. So far so good. I'll keep you posted.

Have to go work on Rowan's sweater. I might even get this done before the weather gets cold!

Good luck with the Weight Watchers! I've heard good things about them. The solar energy proposals sound pretty cool, and it's double neat that you get to help make the decision and learn something interesting in the process. Rowan is such a sweetie! Can't wait for a picture of him in the sweater you're knitting.

One of the healthier eating seminars I attended (as part of a total mental/physical health seminar put on by of all people Lily pharmaceuticals who bring us zyprexa which has been proven to cause diabetes....), anyway, they said to use one of those divided plates and put your starch into one of the small spots and meat into the other small spot and put vegetables/salad into the large part (where we always put our meat). It seemed to make sense and I try to keep that in mind when I'm eating. I still like my meat and starch.....

I should start back up with them, I'm starting to get out of control again with my eating. Good luck!!

Definitely good luck with the w/w--I need to get back on! Right now it's a financial thing. We just don't have the extra $40 a month! But I agree--they worked for me too! (And just look at that baby grow!)
