I know I have blogged about this before, but it never ceases to irratate me.
I pack my lunch and dinner and bring them both to work to eat.
My co-worker looks at me like and says... "are you going to eat all of THAT?" and you know he wants to say... "no wonder you are so fat" after that, but he doesn't.
I look at him and say... "yup - and there are less calories and even less fat in all of this food than in that bag of chips you are munching on and that soda you are sucking down"
Really what is it anyones business what I am eating? I am sure if I were sitting here eating a small cheeseburger and fries from McDonalds no one would say anything since it is such a small portion. For the same amount of calories (maybe a few more/less) am am eating Chicken, a baked sweet potato, salad and applesauce for less than 500 calories! I don't think I could even eat a freakin Happy Meal for that, but for some reason that would be more acceptable since it is a small portion of food.
And yes, I am sitting here eating a nice big bowl of watermelon... and yes, I am going to eat it all... because I can. There are less calories in the large vat of watermelon that I am eating that in your sugar laced coffee.
My entire calorie count for the day (breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) is less than that bag of chips you just polished off
I think that is all for now

It is the 4th of July... shouldn't people be at picnics and such? Why are they at Walmart shopping?
I made a list. I should have made a better one. I made the mistake of writing "fruit" and "salad stuff" without being specific. I ended up buying
I am sure there is something else I bought, I just can't remember what.
I bought a lot of other good stuff too, except for the box of cookies, which in my defense, aren't for me. They are for my boyfriend to take on his next trip to Wisconsin. He likes to snack on them, so I buy them for him to take on the road. He really doesn't eat real food as he is trucking along. That isn't the point really...
I had more than 20 items (I guess I should have put the tomato back?) so I have to use the regular line instead of the express line. I get behind a couple with 3 filthy, dirty brats, who are climbing all over the place and being loud. The parents are basically ignoring them as they scream, and I am about ready to strangle them. I don't know why I don't leave the line and go to another one, I guess I am a glutton for punishment.
They have an entire cart full of crap. I do mean, crap. Frozen pizza, chicken nuggets, chips, cookies, soda, other frozen boxes of something and I am not sure what else. I know I didn't see a veggie or a fruit in sight. I think they has a few gallons of whole milk, which isn't good for people anyway - I don't think milk in general is, but that is another rant for another time.
After they are done checking out, and hauling up 3 cases (yes 3, I counted) of soda from under their cart, they swipe their ACCESS card. How wonderful.
I don't know why i am so irritated by that. Why do I care what they spend their foodstamps on? It irks me though, that they are getting their groceries for nothing and buying nothing but junk. Why not at least buy the good stuff? Get some fresh fruits and veggies and chicken and steak... buy some good fish!
I don't get near as irritated when I see people buying steak with an access card as I do when I see them buying soda and chips
I guess I should mind my own cart...

The scales really aren't moving much. One week I lose 2 pounds, the next week I gain those 2 back, or part of it at least.
Everyone says to check measurements, so I do that too. Those really aren't changing either. They seem to be pretty much the same, and in some cases they seem to get bigger... I mean, maybe I am measuring the wrong places or not quite the same place every time. It is kind of hard being a girl and doing that...
My body is starting to feel different though. I noticed when I was in the shower. Normally I use one of those mesh poofy things, but decided to use a wash cloth for some odd reason, and I noticed my body feeling a little bit different. Some of my curves are getting a little more defined. I have also noticed that jeans I haven't been able to wear for a really long time (a year and a half at least) are fitting me.
Maybe I am losing inches in different places? I don't really know what is going on.
I went to the doctor today about my blood work, and everything is normal. In fact it is way normal. The Doctor can't believe that someone who is 100 pounds overweight can be so healthy. My sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure, and all of that jazz is on the low side of normal She checked my hormone levels and they came back ok, so she can't really find anything wrong with me. She can't explain why I am not losing weight like a normal person.
She suggested I drop down to 800 calories a day, and i kind of gave her a strange look, and she agreed that starving myself would not really help. She offered to give me diet pills if I wanted them, but I declined. She also agreed that it wouldn't help me in the long run.
She is going to check a few more things, and if those come back regular, I don't really know what to say. She is starting to listen to me though. She is starting to see that I am not crazy.
I am excited for the next few days. Wednesday I am meeting with my best friends and going out to lunch and planning for an awesome Harry Potter Birthday Party. Then i am meeting my cousin who is home from VA Beach for cocktails. Thursday I am having a picnic with my family at our hunting camp. Friday my boyfriend and I are going to the park to feed the ducks and have lunch.
I think that is all for now

I was on my way to the gym this afternoon when I realized I had forgotten my gym clothes. I was going to just blow it off, and go grocery shopping, when I remembered that I had left my clothes in my bag from last time. Since, I usually don't take my gym bag out of my Jeep, there were there with me.
When I got to the gym and went to change, I noticed that the shirt smelled. I mean it smelled bad... like sour milk and patchouli oil. The patchouli oil I get since I wear it a lot as perfume, but the sour milk was puzzling. Never-the-less, I donned the reeking shirt and headed out to the cardio room.
I did 20 mins on the elliptical - I am now at level 10! When I first started, I could make it about 5 mins, on level 1 - now I can go 20-25 mins on level 10 (there are 20 levels, so 10 would be about a mid resistance I think) and i use the "random" feature which varies the resistance in intervals. So, I think that is pretty cool. I did the same type of workout on the bike and the treadmill (only the intervals vary the incline) for 20 mins each. I think it was a pretty good workout. I enjoyed it.
I then went grocery shopping. I bought lots of awesome things including a papaya. I have never had a fresh papaya. I have only had them dried or canned. I am interested to try it. I even watched a Youtube video on how to cut one.
I was going to buy a box of turkey burgers, but bought a box of Boca Burgers instead. There were less... well everything! Less calories, less fat... less money!
I have to work tomorrow. I switched days with a coworker. He worked for me on the 13th when I needed to take Leroy to the vet for tests, and I am working for him so he can go get drunk at some Hillbilly fiesta in Cumberland, MD.
I think that is all for now
