Cozy Food

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I am in the mood for cozy food. I want soup and oatmeal. I don't know why I want those things, but that is what sounds good to me.

I have been searching the stores for Maypo, but it seems like no stores in my area carry it. I bought Great Value Sugar Free Maple Oatmeal instead, but I know it isn't as good as Maypo.

I am working until 7am, then I am volunteering at the library. I don't plan on sleeping until later on in the day. I thought about doing a little "cheat" and going and getting a coffee around 5am for a good buzz, hitting the gym, then coming home to get ready for the library. If I just stay up the rest of the day, then I can turn in early.

I think that is what I am going to do.

    Hope you were able to make it through and make it to the gym. I hope you at least made it without passing out from lack of sleep emoticon

End of the Month Stats

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Total pounds lost - 5.8
Total Fitness miss - 1005
Total Miles Rode - 154

I am pretty pleased with those!

I went for a pretty awesome ride today. I decided since I didn't have enough time to make it to the trail, I would ride on an old back road near my house. The ride itself was a little under 13 miles, and I did it in 77 miss. There were some hills I had to pedal up, and I am pleased with myself that I made it up those without walking my bike. I wouldn't have been able to do that a year ago... heck, I wouldn't have been able to do that three months ago! I am going to be a bit full of myself and say I am proud of accomplishing that!

The personal trainer called me back today and guess what? I missed her call! However, I have a game plan. I am going to call her back on Wednesday, she gets in at 8am, so I am going to call her about 8:15 - that way I won't miss her! I think since I have a specific goal in mind, training will be easier. I don't mean easier as in physically, but I think it will be easier for the trainer to come up with a program to help me meet my current goal.

My co-worker had her baby. She had a little boy. I am going to be covering her hours for a while of 7pm-7am. I usually work 5-5.

My finger still hurts where I took a chunk out of it yesterday... it started bleeding again today and bleed for like another hour. It sucks

My goal for October is to basically surpass the numbers I set last month.

I think that is all for now

Lazy Sunday

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Today was a lazy Sunday. I woke up to crappy weather so I didn't really feel like doing much. I went to the store and bought a few things and came home to work on chores. I decided to have a Lord of the Rings Marathon while I worked in the kitchen and on laundry.

I decided to have soup for lunch and ended up take a hunk out of my finger on the can. It bled for an hour. It still hurts.

I was excited to watch the new season of Once Upon a Time, and also start a new show 666 Park Ave. It looks like it is going to be pretty awesome.

I think that is all for now

Mud on the Mountain

Friday, September 28, 2012

This is my goal. I don't think I am in shape enough to try it this year, however, this is my goal for next year. The held another one is May 2012, so I am hoping they do another one in May 2013. If they do, I am going to do it. I am about half certain that I could complete it now, BUT (and here is the big BUT) I want to keep up with everyone else. Sadly, I don't have anyone to do the race with me, so I will be going solo. I think it will be a good time though!

Not much to report for today. My boyfriend took me out to lunch. We went to Wendy's. I got a small chili and a side salad. I ate 1/2 the chili and 1/4 of the salad.

Then I came to work, and there was lots of yummy stuff around... I am doing a pretty good job at resisting it. I did ditch my chicken stuff I brought from home to enjoy a bit of my co-worker's homemade chili. It was fantastic! He also adds a lot of veggies to it, used Venison instead of beef and used dry beans instead of canned. I know that it was also very nutritious!

I am looking forward to hitting the bike trail tomorrow -- I would like to go for 15 miles tomorrow. Should be a piece of cake!

I think that is all for now!

    If 15 miles is a piece of cake, why not try for more.

A Whooo Hooo Bathtub Moment...

Thursday, September 27, 2012

The other night after I can back from riding, my tookiss was sore, so I decided to take a bubble bath. After I was done soaking, I let the water drain and remained in the tub (this is a weird thing I have always done, because after the water drains, I then lay there and turn the shower on hot hot hot and enjoy that for a few) So, aside from now knowing my weird bath rituals, what is exactly the whooo hooo moment?

My butt didn't act like the Hoover Dam! ALL OF THE WATER DRAINED OUT OF THE TUB WHILE I WAS STILL SITTING IN IT!!!! Usually, I have to stand up to let it all out then lay back down, but now, all of the water drained out and I was still sitting there!!!!

I have to stop at Walmart on the way to work and pick up a cheesecake for a co-workers birthday tonight. It doesn't even bother me anymore. When they have cake, I will have a Greek Yogurt, and that will be it. I am not really missing the food thing so much anymore. I just eat my own food that I bought with me.

I didn't exercise today because I was spending "time" with my boyfriend. I was all ready to go biking, and then I looked at him and he looked at me.. and well, you get the picture. Tomorrow we are doing out weekly shopping and he will take me out to lunch. If the weather is nice Saturday, I plan on going biking. Possibly Sunday too. I might even go biking in the rain. The biggest thing I have to remember is the days are getting shorter. I would hate to be caught in the dark on those trails. Not because I am afraid really, but I know what lurks in the Pennsylvania woods at night, and I don't want to happen upon a skunk...

Any way, I am going to go get ready for work, and stop and grab a cheesecake to take in

Have a great day all!

    I loved reading your story!!! I also am a fan of baths- esp bubble baths. It was one of the things that fell away as I got larger. At 296 I was afraid I would slip or couldn't get myself out of the tub, so I quit them. Now I'm down 26 lbs and counting, I've started taking them again, so I TOTALLY relate to your experience!

I agree with Beautifullymade's comments that this is something we can relate to and thin people have no concept about!

Congrats on all your hard work and effort paying off!

    I loved reading your blog, I remember those days that my tushy wouldn't let all the water drain. Right now I can't sit in my bathtub but I will be able to soon, now that you mention it having the water drain will be my next goal after that, lol.
It's the little things like that...which make me really happy too. On a positive note, some of the things we experience during our journey most thin people will not understand or appreciate... it's like being in our own club. So congratulations on your progress so far!

    I love little moments like this! I remember the first time I took a bath and realized that my belly didn't poke up over the water when the tub was full. And, of course, when I realized I could wrap myself in a regular towel!

    That is so great, I have had a few of those crazy woo hoo moments. I love to bike also but we don't have any trails around here. I just ride up and down the roads around my house I am going to try and find a trail around here. I know you feel really proud to have accomplished that. Keep working hard. That is so awesome.

    I thought you were going to say you got your toe stuck in the faucet!!
the other thing you will notice is that it takes MORE WATER to fill the tub no,, you are smaller, so you take up less space, needing more water to cover you!! Nice thought!! Good for you!!
