This past month I only lost 4 pounds...

whhooooppie  :/

I've totally lost whatever small desire I did have to run whilst I've been back home... I've been doing it, but it's been even more challenging.  I want to eat all day, drink sodas, and not cook healthy meals, mainly because the bad way is easier, but also because I'm craving greasy foods and sugary foods more so than I have in the past few months.  I have been going on long walks with the pooch as an alternative to expending larger amounts of energy while running; if I can burn 500 calories in an hour walking instead of 400 calories in 35 minutes by jogging, I'm going the easier route... that's sort of the mentality I've had lately.

I've also not been writing things down, at all.  This is the first time I've visibly created something with words other than a grocery list since I've been back in Italy.  I don't know what it is about this place, but it just doesn't breed a productive environment for me.  I'd much rather binge watch House of Cards and Six Feet Under while knitting away.  As is the title of this blog... bleh.

I'm planning trips for the next few months, Croatia in June, Malta in July, Paris in August... at least that's the hope.  I've got to dig around/move the funds to accommodate my desire to travel while we're still here, but I really wanna do it.  I don't want to leave here (Italy), not sure if we're staying overseas and think, "Damn I wasted my time here by not going anywhere!"  At this point, it's a matter of if the hubs can get off from work or not.  Playing the waiting game is only gonna make the trip more expensive, what with last minute reservations, but if I at least get two of the three trips done in the next six months, I'd say that's way more productive in the travel department than we've been lately.

I already don't want to type anymore so I'm out.  Hoping I'll do something on here by month's end.

Until next time...
