Monster Cookie Plea

I made monster cookies the other day, because the husband loves them. And to have them to take to a Super Bowl Party tomorrow. I haven't baked cookies in over 8 months probably, and I miss it. I do love baking. But I have no self control, so it doesn't go over well with trying to eat healthy.

So, Chad has been keeping the cookies in an undisclosed location. Because if I don't know they're there, I don't want them or try to sneak them.

Tonight I asked for a cookie, and I… Continue

A marriage to Convenience

The first week of the month is a pain in the tuchus for me, since it marks the onset of my period and all of the emotional ups-and-downs that go along with it. I end up feeling like the South Park character Tweak has taken residence in important sections of my brain, and wind up being twitchy in the extreme. It wasn't until Friday at school that I realized the possible unfortunate decision to start my weight loss right before that odd week.

But, I was determined so: a)I made sure I… Continue

Saturday update :)

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I get out of the habit and get distracted too easily :) The last week or so has gone well, I am down to 147 as of this morning- goal for the end of the week is 146 so I have some healthy eating and walking ahead of me! I lost last week even though I ate pretty poorly- I think I was something like -15 flex at the end. Who knows how that stuff works, it is weird sometimes. I was reading my mom's WW booklet and it talks about how flex is optional, so I thought I… Continue

Beware the Red Robin!

Well, today started out good. I kicked the boys out of the house and cleaned! It's so much easier when they aren't underfoot, and yelling everytime I leave the room. You can take your pick at which one. It's either the baby screaming because I left his sight. (I hope this passes soon!) or hubby yelling" Mommy, come see -insert some random baby action-!" as soon as I stick my hands in the sink! So, I sent them packing to Grandma's! Later on , we went to Beavercreek to find a gate. I'm not crazy… Continue

What 200 calories looks like

I'm slowly going through my old posts at the old site. I was searching for one in particular to show my students as they have a hard time visualizing calories and serving sizes etc.

I think until you get in the habit of measuring things, weighing things or reading labels, it is hard to visualize calories, fat etc.

This is a great page to get the picture. The only drawback is that it is in grams, not ounces, so non metric users may have a bit of calculating to… Continue

Sluggish Saturday

Today was a weird day for me. I decided last night that I needed rest. And the only way for me to do that without feeling guilty for sleeping in was to turn my cell phone off, turn my alarm clock away from me, and just sleep. Well let me tell you I slept alright! I slept until 11:30am. I didn’t freak though when I woke up, I just took it as me needing the rest. Yes that is a totally of 10 and a half hours of sleep but no big deal. So I got up had a small breakfast and decided I needed to go to… Continue

This always happens...

So I was doing pretty good for 3 days in a row. 3 days of one hour at the gym and pretty good eating. I thought I was finally getting on a roll then today came. I was planning on going to the gym but woke up after 10 hours of sleep and just hung around for awhile and then took a nap. For some reason I am super sleepy today even though I got tons of sleep! So I rented movies and ofcourse bought candy to go with them. I actually cried while walking out of the gas station bc I had just bought 3… Continue

I have to admit, I'm pretty resistant to change. I like to know what to expect. I like to know how things are going to turn out. When I find something I like, I stick to it. Not just in weight loss, but in all areas of my life. I love the idea of change, I'm just normally to chicken to actually do anything about it. I'm the girl that always wants "something new" when I get my haircut, but end up walking out basically the same. I'm the girl who can order without looking at the menu because I get… Continue

Cheat day and I ate pizza!

I don't use my flex points during the week so on the weekend I have a cheat meal. Tonight I chose pizza. I didn't work out today either guess that just means double timing it tomorrow and doing weights at home because my gym is closed. I can do that tho work extra hard tomorrow. I'm only down a pound this week and I had my fingers crossed it would be more so I'm a little bit upset just as hard a I've been working I thought it would show more :( But last night I did decide to take my measurments… Continue

I survived lunch/dinner out!

Hubby wanted to go to Carino's and I did great! We didn't go to Cheddar's after all as planned. I had the pasta and marinara sauce, 10 pts and the bread/olive oil I don't know what to count that as. I had 18 pts left, so I am sure I don't have any left for the day. I thought I did horrible but got home and looked and not so bad after all! I am going to weigh in tomorrow since I didn't today, I don't forsee a loss. If any a gain again because I have been really retaining water the past 4 days,… Continue

I'm Back

I was away last week in Hawaii then i was slow getting back to blogging. Last week i gained .6 pounds which i chalked up to stepping off a plane not 12 hours before, later i realised i had also left on my jacket. This week I'm down 3.4 pounds for a total of 4.6 pounds.

I have upped my workouts this week to an hour a day. I did the 30 minute slim in 6 and although i was sore the first day i was less sore the next day and not sore the third, score! I also did walk away the pounds 2… Continue

Good Saturday

Today has been a good day and I think it is because I woke up with the attitude that I was going to get something done for a change. I got up fed the kids and took off to the grocery store(s). Three of them. I have to get the best deals, so I had to stop at three different stores. It was fun, I was by myself and that is always fun. Then I came home and cleaned up the kitchen and folded laundry. I finally feel like I have some energy. It is a little warmer today and I think that made me have a… Continue

I have heard your call.

This has been one of those weeks where things were busy, and I didn't have a lot of time to blog- I was feeling kind of guilty about it actually. I've also been struggling a little this week- I am eating within points, but the scale seems stuck (my home scale, I didn't WI this week). I have been avoiding activity and today I kind of realized why.

Because I've been under a lot of stress with work lately, I am compensating. I used to binge with food when stress hit- so my first success… Continue

Another lazy Saturday

Let me start out by saying I am just exausted and I have no clue why. We went out with friends last night but we were home by 8 and in bed by 10 so I know its not lack of sleep. My son had a sleep over/birthday party last night at a friends house and it was really cool because when we went to pick him up the childs mom looked at me and said how good I look WOW was I happy. I didnt even have my "skinny" clothes on today lol. I just had on jeans and my hubby's sweatshirt. That really made my… Continue

Yesterday revisited

Just wanted to finish up my post from yesterday... when i last left off I still had 11 pts left over for the day. We went out to eat with our best friends. I think I did pretty well. I had the chicken quesadilla and only ate 1/2 and i had some chips and salsa i drank water so i know i could have done better with the veggies but i know that I also could have done worse and I ended the day with 0pts left and didnt go over so all in all im pretty proud.

185.2 this morning

After Thursday's stress-eating episode, I faced the home scale this morning. It said 185.2, so that's just .2 up from my Wednesday low.

I'll take it. Hopefully I'll still make some downward progress before my Monday WI.

Slept late today — until noon. Then I got up and had a WW English muffin topped with a slice of RF cheese and a sliced tomato. Hit the store (Safeway had a killer sale on soda — 4 12 packs for $7.99). I bought some veggies, fruit, lunch meat and lean ground… Continue

First day at weight watchers

Today was my first day to go back to weight watchers. It was hard to walk back in there with all the people knowing I stopped going, gained weight, then decided months later to suck it up and go again. Today I weighed in at 182.6. At least I knew where I was going to be today and wasn't surprised. Today I ate some chips and salsa. Boy was I surprised to find out that 7 chips is 3 points. I think I ate like 4 servings of chips. Man I had no idea! Now I totally regret that move. I learned that I… Continue

10.8 Pounds Gone the First Month!!!

I'm so excited that I hit the 10 lb mark already! Plus the fact that I somehow lost 3.2 pounds this week. I had a really bad point day on Thursday (I estimated that I ended up eating around 50-60 points..yikes!) so I figured that I might stay the same or end up gaining. It was a totally (awesome) surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning.

I think after my total freak out on Thursday I'm finally at piece about the house thing. The short sale that we put on offer on forever ago… Continue

Weekends Aren't Long Enough

Last night one of my friends talked me into staying out with her since it was her birthday. I didn't get to bed until 2:30. I am never ever doing that again. She may be a friend, but what about my health? What was I thinking? I woke up by 9:30 so that I could go with DH to get the new car. I am exhausted. We went out to lunch after picking up the new car, which is beautiful by the way, and then ran some errands. DH told me I could spend $100 on some clothes, so I took him up on it. I went to… Continue
