Sorting things out

"I propose to fight it out on this line if it takes all summer." - General U.S. Grant, May 11 1864

Well, I didn't gain any weight this week, which was a nice change - I'd gained two pounds last week and didn't get off to a good start afterwards, but all the walking Melody and I did while looking over the Thunderbird this weekend seems to have helped some. More walking, less eating this week, and even with Memorial Day I should be able to get under 400 by the time the next three weigh-ins go by and it's time to pony up for another ten weeks of Weight Watchers.

The pedometer that McDonald's is giving away with their Go Active Happy Meals will help with that. Silly as it is, having that little plastic gizmo clicking away on my belt encourages me to get some more walking done instead of sitting around, just to get that little number higher every day. Getting up to 10,000 steps (5 miles) every day is going to mean setting aside some time for dedicated walking. We'll see how that goes.

My ex is finally beginning to get a clue and realize how upset our daughter is with her. On the other hand, it's not helping her to snipe at me, since that's part of the problem...but it's not something I feel too inclined to help her with. She made her bed and now she can damn well lie in it.
