Okay, so that was the wrong strategy....

Friday, June 19, 2009

Marathon of meetings today. Because of that, I went into work early, hoping to actually get something done. That part worked. But, since I went to work early, I got up early and I was really tired. So, drank some DP. Okay, drank a lot of DP. Had cookies at lunch too, hoping for the sugar high. Now, my stomach hurts and I totally went over my calories and fat goals. Oops! And the worst part? The caffiene and sugar did not help me stay alert in the meetings. Just made me feel sick. emoticon

Already planning to be better tomorrow...starting right now!

One of the ladies I work with is an avid softball player. Yesterday, she forwarded me an e-mail about a ladies-only tournament this weekend in Boise (20 minutes from where I live). I waffled all day and last night trying to decide if I wanted to commit an entire Saturday to playing softball. I talked to her today and let her talk me into it! I get to play softball on Saturday!!!

The registration fee is only $15 and all of the money goes to encouraging women of all backgrounds to play the game. I figure they might try to recruit me to play on a team this fall (at least, they will until they watch me play! LOL!), but that's okay. I might WANT to play! Anyway, this weekend will be a nice warm up for the summer league I've joined. The only thing is that now I have to get all of my weekend jobs done Friday night and on Sunday. emoticon That might not be such a good thing...

Anywho....I'll let you know how it goes!

Happy Anniversary to me!

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

Today is my wedding anniversary!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

DH and I have been married for 19 years. It certainly doesn't feel like it's been 19 years. We are still going strong, are in love (yes, with each other!) and even still like each other!

Our big celebration? We told each other Happy Anniversary, went our separate ways for work, and had chili dogs for supper. Simmer down...I know that's pretty exciting stuff, but we're mature adults. We can handle it. LOL!!

I think for our 20th we'll have to be a little more dinner out without the kids!

Sorry I missed your big shindig, I was out of town, even out of state.
I hope you guys had a wonderful anniversary. We've got one coming up soon too! Maybe I'll take your idea and celebrate with chili-dogs.
Got a place for me to stay "OTHER" than the dog house that I'm gonna be in? LOL
Take Care of each other

    Happy Anniversary!!! But please, at least tell me you're gonna' model the bikini for him tonight or something! (Or nothing if that's what you prefer...but it better be something if you're gonna' keep this alive for another 19 years on something other than chili dogS!!! FCOL!!!! LOL!!!) Seriously, I do wish you guys a Happy Anniversary! Being together for 19 years and still being in love (with each other as you put it) is really saying something. My Aunt and Uncle are the only two people I know who have stayed married and they have been together for 52 years and are still very much in love with each other and they let each other know on a daily basis. It's really quite special. So congrats!!! You are both special people!

Why is it that you want to eat more...

Monday, June 15, 2009

when you've just decided to eat better? At least I do. My calorie range is down since my weight range is up. My meal plan gave me plenty of food, spaced nicely so I always had food when I got hungry. So, what did I want? Lots and lots of whatever food I didn't have. Chocolate chip cookies sounded particularly good. And what did DH bring home from work? Yep, chocolate chip cookies. emoticon Yeah, I ate five of them.

The good news is that I did go to the gym. I did day 1, week 3 of the HPC and day 1, week 3 of the squats challenge plus cardio. I am starting again (right now!). My calories look good for tomorrow and I will work out. I will lose this extra five pounds and be able to go back to maintaining. Or die trying! LOL!


Scales lie!

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Okay, it's not the scale lying, it's me lying to myself. I set my range to be between 130 and 135. I have consistently been over the 135 for the last two weeks. Not much over, just 1 - 2 pounds, but that's enough. I'm going back to my weight-loss mode for the next couple of weeks so I can get back into my range.

Of course, today wasn't the best start. Had breakfast at Carl Jr.'s (600+ calories). Made a plan that could still keep me in my range, but halfway through the afternoon my blood sugar started to drop. Needed to have some sugar to get it back up. So, I bought some old fashioned donuts. Yeah, I ate three. emoticon Didn't need that many, but they tasted good! Starting again right.....NOW!

On a positive note, my daughter actually asked to go to the gym today. Her Seventeen magazine came with a little pullout with 16 different exercises and she wanted to do them. So, we did! She had some problems with some of the moves and her shoulders hurt (we were working shoulders!), but she stuck with it. Hope to get her to keep doing them.
