Yes I'm going to whine! I'm stuck, I've been doing the same thing but I'm stuck at 5 lbs.. What the heck? I'm switching things up and hopefully that will help.. The past 2 days have been pretty pooey for eating right.. Aubrey wanted those jam thumbprint cookies so I made those and had a couple, then forgot to write and calculate my calories cause of how hectic it's been.. Roy has been working late and by the time he gets home the kids are off schedule and not going to bed very early, so then I don't get on the bike.. If I do during the day I'm holding Hunter in my arms until he gets bored and realizes that 'we're not going anywhere.'

Hopefully tonight will be better, he's almost home I can get dinner done and get my chunky butt on that bike!

    Oh sweetie, I can totally relate!! I am constantly looking for more hours in my day! But then I would just have more to do!! I was stuck at a plateau for a long time and realized I wasn't getting ENOUGH calories! I never thought that could happen!! Remember that it takes for every pound of weight loss you need to eat 3500 calories LESS. So in a week if you can cut 500 calories a day, then you lose a pound in a week. So if you do that AND burn extra calories exercising you can lose a bit more.
I know you can do this. You are worth it! You are not chunky...just on the road to healthy living!
Hugs, Cathy

    You're entitled to whine a little! I allow myself one rant per day. I don't always take myself up on that, but it's nice to know that I'm allowed ONE! I hope that you see some progress. I've been a little stuck too! Hey, you're not allowed to call yourself chunky -- unless it's a good thing, like chunky peanut butter or chunky salsa or chunks of brownie fudge in your ice cream. That's the only way you're allowed to call yourself chunky. I looked it up in the rule book. ;) Have a great day!

Phenomenal Women... That's You

Saturday, January 05, 2008

by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a model's fashion size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
I say
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And to a man
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
A hive of honey bees.
I say
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say
It's in the arch of my back
The sun of my smile
The ride of my breasts
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say
It's in the click of my heels
The bend of my hair
The palm of my hand
The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

    Grats on your first blog! It's funny that I clicked on your blog, which was a poem. I just made a blog that was a poem - although it was sort of a silly/joke poem. What a coincidence! Best of luck on all your goals!
