Before I go on any further I need to add a personal update. Yesterday my husband got very sick with vertigo (first time he has ever had it). He was throwing up so violently that his whole body lurched all over. He took his first ambulance ride, which led to an ER visit, which then led him to being admitted in the hospital. We are hoping it is an inner ear problem that will clear its self up over a few days, not greater issues.
So the short is, things are a bit thrown off right now. I was not able to weigh myself, or measure. I posted the last weight I remember from a few days ago. I was really looking forward to weighing myself this morning, due to my next reward (a pedicure)coming when I hit 189.
Given the circumstances, I need to focus on getting the hubs better and home. I did however prepare most of this post yesterday before things went out of control.
I did good this week. I stayed with in my goals for my carb count with the fiber adjustment. I am going to try to continue to be good, but with hospital/fast food plus not being able to get in good workouts, we will see how things work out.
I am going to try to get in a walk while my hubs is resting. That may be the extent of my exercising this week.

I did most of my exercising at home this week. My kids have had a bug of some sort so we spent the whole week at home. I did however get all of my workouts in still, six total!! I love being 100% on one of my goals for this summer challenge. I hope I can keep it up somehow!
Did good on water. I was a little low on Saturday and I woke up feeling totally dehydrated. It is amazing how your body adjusts to the extra water intake and really seeks more liquid when you fall behind. I am still working on getting re-hydrated. Sitting in the ER for 5 hours didn’t help!
No measurements today. I hope to get them in sometime, it just isn’t a priority right now.
For all of you out there who wouldn’t mind. I would appreciate prayers in my husbands behalf, that he will soon recover so we will be able to return home to our babies!!
