Summer break

You may have noticed I have been slacking on new posts this week…just wanted to say all is good up here in Maine. Yeah, the weather has been crap lately (in the month of June, we only had 9 non-rainy days) and yes we did have that fellow I wrote about who decided killing a couple of young cats would be a good idea. Then it turns out in our largest city that a prominent women who happens to be Black has some unresolved legal issues but really all is good…just life in a not so big state.

I have been blogging for a year now and lately find myself in a blogging funk, so I am thinking of reducing my blog posts for the summer (whenever it arrives).  Of course if you are dying to know what’s really going on with me, feel free to follow me on Twitter @blackgirlinmain…I do tend to update frequently on Twitter.

So, catch ya sometime soon…I have some stuff on my mind, just not in a writing mood lately. Happy Friday!

Battle of the bulge

I’m feeling a tad down today, just got back from my Weight Watchers weigh in only to discover that I had not done as well as I thought I had in the past week with reigning in my eating habits. I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, I have now successfully kept off the almost 50 pounds I lost last year for a little over a year. Problem is the past few months I have slowly been slipping back into the bad habits that made me need Weight Watchers in the first place.

I guess the bright side is that I still weigh in regularly so I am attempting to correct this problem before it grows bigger, I am also still under my goal weight but unless I do something quickly, soon I will be paying for those weigh in sessions again. (once you hit lifetime on WW, meetings are free provided you are no more than 2 pounds over your goal weight)

The thing is having kids around seems to make it hard it to stay on track. Now that elder boy is home for the summer, we have been eating out a tad more and eating out always seems to be the kiss of death for me. It doesn’t help that I work with kids and snacks are always around, its hard to avoid. Plus thanks to the fact that summer seems to have decided that by and large it does not want to visit Maine this year, we have been stuck in the house with a lot of rainy cool days. The type of days that cry out for home cooking and eating, though in the winter I get my exercise by shoveling snow, with rain there is not much to do.

So, its Wed hump day and I need to turn the soda bottle loose. In other news that memorial service for MJ was actually quite nice, I actually broke down when his daughter spoke…talk about a raw emotional moment.

Anyway sorry there is no deep post today, but hopefully you are having a better hump day then me. Catch ya later!
