I have been feeling under the weather most of this week...but yesterday took it to a whole new level.  I am suffering 'vertigo' due to an inner ear infection.  It is miserable.  Everything is spinning and moving ALL the time, except when I'm asleep.  I'm really tired of it and need it to go away stat!

Regardless of my inability to stand and walk without tipping about like a drunk woman, I weighed in.  Here are my results:

Of course, I'm happy to see a loss!  I would be lying if I said anything different...but I'll be honest, I would prefer for this to even out.  Rather than losing 6 lbs. one week, and none or even a gain the next...I would prefer a steady 2 - 3 lbs. each week!  Slow and steady wins the race!!!  RIGHT!!  And I'm a playing to win this race!!!

Trying to get this picture this morning was a bit of a comedy of errors.  My balance is so off, and I am constantly dizzy, so when I picked up our camera to get my weigh in picture - I promptly dropped it...and broke it.  I am so bummed out!  We just bought it in January, and here it is May and it is broken beyond repair.  Chris is going to see if it is still covered and we can return it for a new one...but, I'm not holding my breath.


We had some big plans this weekend, as the weather is absolutely gorgeous around these parts.  Last year for Mother's Day I wanted nothing more than to conquer 'The Hike to the Y' - I did it, although it was can read about that adventure here.

This year I wanted to repeat my victory on Y Mount - so we had planned to do the hike this weekend.  Clearly in my dizzy, tipsy state I shouldn't be allowed to get near any steep incline on the side of a mountain!  I'm still holding out hope that this vertigo crap will clear up...but, if it doesn't, my hike will have to wait until next weekend.

Last weekend we had planned a hike to Silver Lake with a good friend and his kids, that got scuttled due to the weather.  We were hoping to do that today - but again...unable to walk a straight line is putting a hamper on these plans!!!

As it stands, this weekend is starting to look like a lot of time in bed or on the couch...and a lot of Redbox movies to keep me entertained!!  In fact, as I write this post I am watching Twilight and loving every minute of it.  It is playing my favorite scene of the whole movie right now - The baseball game - LOVE IT!  No, I won't be ashamed!  I adore Twilight!  And, yes, I'm Team Edward all the way!

Have a great weekend!!!

  1. I really think we could be sisters, our stories are so similar. I had vertigo a few years ago. It was terrible. I felt drunk all the time. Mine was caused by sinus pressure that was putting pressure on my inner ear. I had to get a shot and some antibiotics but I was much better in about 3 days. Hope yours gets sorted out soon. I too love Twilight and am Team Edward.

  2. Congrats on the loss, that's awesome! Darn scale doesn't always make sense, but as long as it goes down over the course of a month I'm happy. Hope you feel better soon, that hike sounds like fun.
