the long road to healthy

weekly weigh in

Filed under: family, keeping it real, weigh in — karena @ 7:58 am

It has not been an easy week in the Long Road household. DH is still gone, the kids are missing Daddy and whiny and grumpy as a result. Actually, today is the worst day yet, come to think of it. The only thing that earns me a few minutes respite is Thomas the Tank Engine. I’m not a fan of television-as-babysitter, but there are days when it is necessary for my sanity. Today is one of those days.

But I digress.

Last week: 165.5
This week: 164.5

One pound loss. My goal for this challenge at the sisterhood is ten pounds in seven weeks. Only nine more to go!

The moral of this story: stress burns more calories than you think!



  1. Way to go, Karena! One pound is great! I hope the hubby gets home soon. Mine is gone all week, every week, and sometimes it’s soooooo hard.

  2. Way to go!! 1 pound is great when stress is on the scene. That tends to be my worst time!
    Hope things get easier at your house….Go BLUE!!

  3. Awww, thanks guys! I love having people cheer me on! DH is home late late late on Friday. Which means he’ll probably sleep Saturday away. But by Sunday I expect I’ll get some “me” time.

    Christy — all week, every week? How you manage I’ll never know!

    Ann — I know that as a homeschooling mom, this is something I’m going to have to muddle through. But I am young (in hs years, that is!) and so very green!
