Mopey?

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Yesterday I had computer problems among other things. I just felt so lazy, perhaps not as much lazy as mopey. I had no energy, didn't feel like doing anything and everything I touched wasn't working right (like the computer)

So my husband, the darling that he is, reconized how I was feeling and told me to get off the computer, stop being mopey and get ready as he was taking me out. He was also taking me out to eat. I did as was told and had a great dinner of more protein that I've had in a long, long time, some veggies and then a dessert of chocolate covered strawberries. What a difference it made! My energy returned, my mood changed and the carry over is still here. My whole outlook changed. Perhaps it was the protein that I was lacking or was it the chocolate that affects women in such a fantastic way. Whatever it was, I'm glad I did it even if it cost me another 3 lbs. At least now I have the energy to work them off again. I'm probably never going to get anywhere but you know, it's not so bad staying where I am, ;)

    Sounds like you just needed to get out and away from your computer. The meal was a bonus and the chocolate had to be heavenly!!! Just enjoy being you!!!

Level 12

Monday, January 23, 2012

Today, on SP, I hit level 12! I have learned so much during my time here and so many new habits have been formed. Now they are ingrained and I just don't feel right when they are not part of my routine. Things are coming automatically to me, healthy things are now part of my life. I have not reached my goal and perhaps I had too lofty a goal. I seem to be stuck here but thinking back I see that I have lost over 20 % of my weight. Maybe my body just has to adjust to this. Whatever it is, I am set to live my life the way it is. Should I lose more, that would be a bonus but for now, I am content, I am healthy and I shall continue to learn as much as I can. Now I'm off to have a great day!

    You are liking yourself where you are and that is a great accomplishment. I am not going to say that you are complacent where you are, but you know where you came from and what you had to do to get where you are. I believe that there is another downhill plunge for you. Give your body a chance to catch up with you and you will go as far as you want.
God bless

Box of Chocolates

Sunday, January 22, 2012

I've been super this whole week, haven't lost an ounce and been having cravings for about 2 weeks for that new Turkey Hill ice cream flavor of the month called Box of Chocolates. So today as a treat, I am going out and getting some. I can thank the ice cream makers for the fact that their containers went from 64 ozs to 48 ozs for the same price, but they did me a favor as we will eat the whole thing anyway and the smaller size is better for me in the long run. When you can't get something out of your mind and you keep trying to fix it with other things that just don't fit the bill, you are better off just having the item and then moving on. So today, I'm moving on and going to savor every bite. I hope it is as good as I imagined and dreamt about every night.

    I have ice cream on the brain, so I'm going to try to break it by having some yogurt with blueberries on it. I may also add some walnuts for the extra crunch.

I have never had a box of chocolates ice cream and had better never try it.

    Ahhh, it was not to be. I went to a few stores and although they did have Turkey Hill, they did not have this flavor. ;(

    hagen daas and blue bunny have tiny single serve containers. I don't buy often, but when I do I stop with like 2.5 oz containers so that the most binging I can do is licking the carton clean.

    Love Turkey Hill ice cream! I don't think I've seen box of chocolates yet. I just went through my favorite flavor. Walmart's peanut butter cup. So good! One of my weaker moments! But loved every minute of it.

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Everyone Needs a hug sometimes but it's extra special when you get a hug and don't need it. So since today is National Hugs day, I'm sending all my friends here an extra special (((((HUG))))) to let you know you are thought of more often than you know. That you are appreciated and loved. Without all of you, many of us would not be here or be in this position of closer to goal. Thank you all, ;)

Coffee

Friday, January 20, 2012

When you just finshed a 24 oz cup of coffee and decide to have another, is it considered a second cup or the beginning of a fourth cup?

Today I woke up so hungry that I couldn't wait to have breakfast. After breakfast, I'm still hungry so I'm having more coffee to try to stem these urges. I know I'll get thru this but I sure don't like when the day starts off like this. While I'm waiting for hubby to get his act together (we're going swimming), this coffee will stop my visits to the kitchen.

I was up early this morning and took out the Wii. I usally do 50 mins on it while hubby sleeps but this morning I just didn't feel like it. I did a body test and then sat down and looked at it. I even went so far as to close it up. Then I thought, what else do you have to do this early. Just watch TV. So watch TV and do the advanced step on the Wii. So I did do 20 mins, it was like pulling teeth but I got it done. It wasn't the 50 mins but it was something. Now we're off and I'm going to pull this day out of the fire and make it shine!

    I don't drink coffee. I have never seen the attraction. My Mom and Dad both drank it but my Brother and I never did. Go figure!! I'm never hungry until after the first bite of food. I drink 3 glasses of water before walking. Then eat breakfast after I walk. Isn't it funny how all of us are different!

    A cup is 8 oz. A cup is a unit of measure and a container. So if you're measuring, a cup is 8oz.

    I think a cup of coffee is actually considered 6 oz. I always say I'm on my second or third cup or whatever even though I'm consuming around 16 oz at a time

I tend to drink more coffee to act as an appetite suppressant but eventually I will get really hungry and thristy
