saved

today I had the MUNCHIES~  I made the girls Fried French Fries and chicken nuggets and I could not keep my hands off of the french fries.  I was going to go over on calories tonight, but the BFF talked me into my senses.  I so need that girl in my life.  I really was in a I DON'T give a shit kinda mood, but she reminded me that come Monday when the scales not saying good things that I only would have myself to blame.  I love that girl!
It really sucks that some days this comes so easy and other days I just want to give in to every temptation.  I guess I will just have these struggles for the rest of my life so I will have to get used to it.

Boring

Nothing exciting really has been going on. I did enjoy 2 pieces of PAPA JOHNS pizza today. One for lunch and one for dinner. It was soooooo good.

Weigh day

In the morning. I hope to be 138. I also did 3 miles today. It was cold, but I made it through and felt good when I was done.

Back in track

Cheated yesterday and back on track today. Usually if I would have a cheat day it would lead to more cheating, but today I'm right back where I should be. It feels good to know I can do that on occasion and not have to worry. I will feel confident with it as long as the scale stays nice on Monday.

cheater cheater

I cheated on calories today.  I shouldn't really let it bother me, but I FEEL SO GUILTY~  I went over by about 700 calories.  The food was really good, but I wish I would have had more will power to  not do it.  Oh well, tomorrow is a new day and back on track I must be!~

paint

I made the girls shaving cream paint for their baths.  IT WAS A HUGE HIT.  Mya spent 45 minutes in the tub and then I had to tell her to get out.  Then after bath time I made them 5 minute mug cakes and ice cream.  Laken said it was the best snack ever.  LOL

that was scary

We had really bad storms that came through the area and I guess tornado's close to my area.  We got small hail here, but others close by had baseball sized hail.  Hopefully hubby's car didn't get damaged while at work.

another good feeling

I actually fit into single digit jeans today.  I put 3 pair on and they all fit, well actually are kind of lose.  Now granted I also have 12's that still fit and I guess it all depends on the brand, but I was so happy.  I am also still finding that as much as I hate to have my picture taken (especially the ones for comparison) that I am really happy to have them to look back on.  No wonder I wasn't happy.  Looking back I just cannot believe that I did that to myself.  WHAT WAS I THINKING?

I am even about 10 pounds lighter then this picture now.  I need to get a better comparison soon.

will it happen?

Tomorrow is weigh day...Will I be in the 130's?  Today I was 139.8  I hope it remains over night.  I better go to bed soon though because I made no bakes, and my brother in law came over and bought some of my favorite pizza and I just started picking.  I NEED TO STOP~ Oh and the treadmill bracket on the other side is now starting to break which is going to really screw up my workouts.  I AM SO PISSED!

longest day ever

I swear this day just will not end.  I am very cranky today and really didn't do much besides the treadmill, and make dinner.  I had to push hard on the treadmill again.  I still managed to run a mile non-stop though.  I also think that I need to cover the calories burned on my treadmill with tape or something because they are so far off from what my heart rate monitor tells me and it becomes very discouraging.  I hopped on the scale after lunch and it said I was 139.6 so I think as long as I am careful...Monday's weigh in should be a great one.  I love this feeling of being thinner.  I just need to keep reminding myself of that so I do not get out of control again. I can't believe that I am almost 30 pounds lighter then I was 70+ days ago~I have had wonderful and supportive friends to get me where I am.  I am very thankful!

well Hot DAMN

I did it again.  Ran a mile that is.  Now I need to work really hard to make it to a mile and a half.  I really had to push hard to workout today.  I had a headache and just felt so lazy .   Surprisingly though, after I did the treadmill my headache didn't seem to be as bad as it was before.  Sometimes I guess it really does pay to push yourself hard. The weather was GORGEOUS and I am so ready for it to be that way all the time. Also the scale was 140 this morning.  I hope I at least hang onto that number until Monday and Tuesday or even better to be lower then that. 
Time for a really horrible comparison picture again.  Holy fucking fat!~I better NEVER let myself go like that again.

naughty leprechauns

Mya woke up around 12:00 and said she had to go to the bathroom.  She rarely ever does that.  I think it was the excitement to see if the leprechauns had paid us a visit.  ( I had to direct her straight to the bathroom even though she tried peeking downstairs).  When we woke up for school, the girls were really excited, but I am not sure I can pull this off another year with Mya.  They thought it was so funny that the toothpaste was in the fridge, the milk was green(which Mya swears made it taste so much better...LOL), the shoes were hanging from door handles, coats in the middle of the floor, toilet paper strung throughout the downstairs, all the snack food was in the living room, toothbrushes on the tv stand, and the toilet water was green because a leprechaun had used the toilet, but didn't flush because they were afraid of waking someone in the house up.  When Mya seen the toilet water she swore it was cleaner.  I told her if it was cleaner it would have a strong smell, but it didn't.  Then she said that the leprechauns have clean smelling pee.  Then they even had to go and wake up daddy to let him know what all had happened in the middle of the night.
Then it was time to get ready for school.  I put some Green hairspray in the girls hair.

 I think they really enjoyed today.  It was something new for us.  They still were bringing it up as I tucked them into bed tonight.

As for me.  I didn't workout today, but I did stay at 1200 calories.  For the last 2 days, I have been up a pound and I am hoping that it will be gone by Monday.  I really cannot wait for that scale to say 139.

spit it out

So today I made pretty little sugar cookies that are for tomorrow.  I also stuck one in my mouth, chewed it, and then spit it back out.  LMAO.  I was desperate, I wanted to taste it.  I liked it, but then felt super guilty that I had done that.  It was really good though.
I also think they are pretty freaking cute.  Now I am trying to get creative because they leprechauns have to come trash my house tonight.  We are not IRISH, but I thought this would be super fun for the girls to be able to do.  We made a trap to try to catch those sneaky little guys.  I colored the milk green, I toilet papered the inside of the house a little.  (cant be wasting to much TP.  that stuff is way to expensive)  I moved their toothbrushes and toothpaste, I moved all the snack food into the livingroom, before they wake up in the morning I plan to make the toilet water Green,  and I am not sure what else I am going to do, but I hope it is enough to get the girls laughing their butts off in the morning.

Eat

Good gravy! I don't know what the deal is with me today. I am not hungry, yet I find that I keep shoving shit in my mouth. I was going to have a no workout day, but since I went over 1200 calories I had to workout. I only burned 300 calories, but I did end up running 1.25 miles non stop. I don't think I've ever done that. I just hope that even though I ate around 200 calories
Over, that I confuse my metabolism because if I gain by my weigh in, I'm goin to be super pissed at myself.

Great day

My mom took the girls and I to the mall today and then out to eat. We went to Perkins. I had chicken noodle soup. Out of everything that I could have chosen I picked the 150 calorie menu item.
I'm down 26 pounds now and totally stoked!


Oh and did u see the bachelor tonight ? Wow all I can say is wtf. Lol

big accomplishment

Today I reached a HUGE accomplishment: I RAN A MILE NON STOP~ that was right after I had walked 3.75 miles. I went a total of 5 miles today. I know that to some, this may not be a huge thing.  For me it is.  Even back when I was in high school and middle school I could only do good at the short distance runs, but never the long distance.  I burned over 500 calories and I whined like a little baby on my last .25.  That is okay though because I freaking did it. I pushed through the pain because I wanted to be able to feel accomplished.  70 days ago it was hard for me to walk a mile and now I ran one.  I hope in another 70 days I can run 2 miles.

Running and running

Well the treadmill has made it 7 miles without breaking.  I think it is really fixed this time.  Back in January it was really hard for me to go 4 MPH and today, I was doing HIIT for 20 minutes.  My highest MPH was a 7.  I am so impressed with myself.  I am hoping that when my Brother in Law comes in for a visit in the Spring that I will be able to go for a run with him.  He is an avid runner.  He runs 3-4 miles 5 days a week and has for years.  I HAVE NEVER been a runner. Today I went 4 miles on the treadmill that is both running and walking. The most I have ever run straight was a mile and that was years ago.  Today I ran 6 minutes straight and I will be happy with that.  My feet hurt though.  I think I have blisters.  Wonder how well I will do tomorrow.  I am excited about this journey I am on.  Some days more then others. COME ON 130's I can smell you!

its fixed

I am so stinking excited.  Hubby took my treadmill to his friend's house again.  The friend made a brand new bracket and put it on.  It seems like it is going to work out fine.  I went 3 miles and went a max of 6 mph.  It is going to be so nice to have it back and not have to do boring workouts of running in place and having to not worry about the weather.  I have been slacking on calorie burns lately and I think that I should do much better now.  So today I did Zumba and 3 miles on the treadmill and burned over 500 calories. I know I have said it before, but I am so happy to also have my heart rate monitor because now that I have it and the treadmill, I was able to see that the treadmill really isn't accurate on calories for me.  It is at least 50 calories off which makes a big difference.  It is really accurate though at the miles.  Hopefully now things will start looking better on the exercise and weight loss will start coming off even faster.  So guy who I don't know that spent time fixing my treadmill for me. I Think I love you.  THANK  YOU SO MUCH!

Take 2

Tomorrow my husband will be taking my treadmill to his friends house again. The guy created a new bracket for it. I really hope it works, bur I have kept my expectations low. I don't want to feel disappointed again.
I realized today that I am only 3 pounds away from being in the 130's. Thank goodness for that. I can't wait to be for my bmi to be down to normal.

Cauliflower Pizza

I know this has been done on a lot of blogs, but I checked a ton of them out before making it myself and I feel there just can't be to many. I think the way I made mine ended up having way to many calories. You live and you learn though. THE KIDS HATED THIS. I loved it and my neighbor loved it, her daughter who has celiacs thinks she liked it, but I really didn't have much to share with her. I was really impressed that it was sort of the consistency of bread. It wasn't dry at all really. Some people say that you don't need to like cauliflower to like this pizza...I kind of feel that you do.









so there it is:  MY REVIEW~

Warning if you are new to my blog, you may be offended reading any other posts because I swear A LOT.

Yay

I'm just a few ounces away from a 25 pound loss. I am beyond thrilled. Bill took the broken bracket to a guy at work today. He said he will try to rig something up to fit in it's Place. I just wish I had money to purchase a new one. Hopefully since I do not have money, this guy will figure something out. If not then this damn weather needs to clear up so I can walk outside or do something.

Slacker

Not sure WTF is wrong here, but somehow I keep forgetting to blog. So again, this is for yesterday. The battery died in my scale. Which for me the one who steps on it everytime I go to the bathroom is probably a good thing, but I'm going sucking futs. hopefully I will be making a trip to the store to replace it today. I've done well with stayin in the 1200 calorie range this past week. Exercise was not at it's best, but hopefully I will be down on the scale. Maybe today's post, as long as I remember will be about a great loss.

skating

I meant to blog last night, but totally forgot. Bill, the kids and I went roller skating last night with a bunch of friends. I stayed off of the skates because I didn't think I could control my daughter's feet and mine at the same time. Laken(4) caught on pretty quickly. She couldn't get the full on skate, but she got around great. Mya (7)on the other hand has 2 left feet. She did get better towards the end though. Bill just cracks me the fuck up. By the end of the night, I think Bill was back in his groove from 30 years ago. He was getting the crossovers in his feet, leaning into his turns, and skating backwards. The only thing missing was a mullet(as said by one friend) and bell bottom pants. I laughed so hard. I have one video that I have watched probably 25 times and each time I watch it I laugh so hard. Now I have to worry because all of my friends are saying they are getting me in skates the next time. Since I made fun of Bill so bad, I could be in for some trouble. LOL~

Sad

There was a tragic accident today that killed a 17 year old girl. It has totally broken my heart. I pray for this girls family. I cannot imagine having to deal with the loss is a child. I didnt know this girl, but it has made Me so sad and so sick to my stomach today.

Fixed

Finally my hubby found someone to weld the snapped bracket on my treadmill and after 3.5 miles of working out, it snapped again. I'm so sad. I was so ready to be able to workout on it again. Hopefully the guy that fixed it will be able to rig it another way. At least the weather should be clearing up for more frequent walks outside. It is just so hard with the schedule my family is on.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

I feel like I starved today. I ate my 1200 calories, but I just wanted to binge. I smelled girl scout cookies on several occasions today, but I didn't give in. I Still have something going on with my stomach and so I'm lacking workouts. Hopefully my treadmill will be fixed tomorrow and workouts will be more frequent.

compliment

Today my friends Mom who I haven't seen for a while, stopped over my house. When she came in she said, "You lost some weight" ( both her daughter's know that I have been working out and watching my calories), but I don't think she did. It felt great that she noticed. It is days like this that help me to remember why I am working so damn hard. Also today when I had to go to my daughters' pre-k registration...I actually didn't feel embarrassed to be in front of everyone and feel like I was being stared at. Some weeks it is so easy to be positive, but other weeks so hard. I hope this feeling lasts a while this time.
