It began at 7 when I got up and sparked for about an hour then hit the road for a day of customer service.I actually looked cute today with a new outfit my girls had given me for my birthday. I had to meet 4 customers and stop in at 2 supply houses so I had a Luna bar for breakfast, got my water and an apple and headed out.
Stopped at my roofing supply company and I noticed the manager (we have known him for years) was looking pretty trim and he said something about walking last night. So I told him he looked good and had he lost weight. He shyly said, "yea a little bit" and I asked how much He told me 15 pounds! So I was telling him how awesome that was when a customer walked in. Drew asked me how far I was and I said "49 pounds but man, I want that 50!" and the customer (must have been in the medical field) told me how awesome that was and the pressure off my knees blah blah. They were really sweet. As I was leaving, Drew holllered at me, "Hey, Jan, thanks for inspiring me!"...
I mean, come on! You KNOW how good that made me feel!? Pretty awesome! So that was good thing #1.
Then I met all my customers, called Frank and told him I wouldnt have time to meet for lunch, went to Jack in the box (fajita pita and fruit cup) then decided to make time to stop in and say a quick hi to Frank at our jobsite on my way back to town for a haircut.
I got out of the truck and he was all, "wow, you look great!!" SO that was good thing #2.
As I drove home, my phone rings and it is him. He asks what time is my haircut and Im thinking, why do you want to know? lol... anyway, he was asking because he wanted to meet me at this little rendevous spot for um, afternoon delight!!! LOL. I didnt have time to stop cause I was late but it made my day!!!! #3.
Then I went for hair cut and color and made some changes #4 and then Frank took me to dinner cause it was late (no walk tonight for Stitchy)#5.
So all in all, I had pretty freaking great day! And I hope you did too!
Here is my new hair...

I got on the scale this morning to see how much I had lost this weekend since I ate well, worked and sweated my ass off for 3 days. I thought how awesome that I get to blog about hitting my mini goal of 50 lbs weight loss. UM, NO!
I am up 3 pounds! What the hell! I said, "That's BULLS***!" and scared my dog cause it kind of erupted from me.
I intellectually understand that working as hard as I dd this weekend could affect my weight loss progress but it still upsetting. I literally did not stop moving from about 10 am to 1 am each day.That is 13 hours of moving with maybe an hour of sitting at about 10 minutes at a time. That is not my typical lifestyle, beleive me.
I stayed within my nutritional guidelines but I can taste the sodium in my mouth this morning from dinner last night, even tho I stayed within my range as far as calories etc.
I know that I will probably be down tomorrow or the next day but it still sucks. Now I have to put that I am up on my tracker and on my team and I HATE that.
So my friends, the clouds have obscured the rainbows today, the unicorns are in hiding, and I feel cranky.
Tomorrow will be another story and then I will write how nobody should get discouraged in this case, that your body needs time to adjust sometimes, that it is progress, not perfection that is important and that non-scale victories are way more important than what the fickle scales.
I truly believe that and it is advice I would give anybody but man, when that number comes up, it like a punch to the gut.
Today, my plan is lots of water, no restaurant food hence keeping the sodium down, walk the dog tonight, go to the store for fresh fruits and veggies and keep on moving on.

The regularly scheduled broadcast will not be viewed in your area today as planned. This is due to a hiatus of approximatly 3 days while the host is hosting elsewhere. Please remain calm and do not remain in your seats! There are healthy snack alternatives in the lobby, and music for your excercising pleasure will be supplied.
Please, again, remain calm, eat well, get your excercise and your much beloved host will return on Sunday afternoon to once again, brighten your life and enhance your viewing pleasure.
Please wish her well as she embarks on 3 days of cooking for 300 racers, wives and yes, children. In the dirt. In a tent. With only a BBQ, 2 electic roaster and her assistant (and sister), TEXWIFE by her side.
While she is anticipating this to be a challenge, when asked how she could possibly accomplish her goals, she replied in typical MAMADWARF fashion, "I am a Proffessional. This is my 15th year at this event and while there may be obstacles, I have recently realized that there is nothing I cannot do", She then smiled muttering something that sounded like spark-power under her breathe and continued. " I am up for the challenge, physically, emotionally and mentally and I appreciate everyones care and support. I will be returning in a few days when I will share my experiences with my viewing audience!"
So, folks, let's be positive, be good to ourselves, throw up a prayer for our girl, Jan, and be back here on sunday, ready for a new work week ahead.

Yesterday, we went to the movies to see "You again!" (Cleva, you gotta go see! It deals with high school nemesis!!).
Anyway, there is a glass door you use to go into the lobby of the theater and we were all walking and talking, went through the doors and up to go buy our tickets.
A large woman being pushed in a wheelchair was behind me sister and neice in line to get the tickets, (who were behind me) and Neice hears the woman start talking a bunch of crap about her. About how rude she is and she closed the door on her and that "she hoped our family would have to have someone in a wheelchair and that would happen to them" . She tells my sister whats going on and moves over to stand by us. She is really upset because she didnt see the woman behind her or of course, she would have held the door for her. Certainly not intentional! I mean, who would DO that??
Sister turns to the woman and says " I am so sorry, she didnt see you." and this woman starts arguing with her and tells her "yes, she did, she knew I was there, blah blah blah!"
My sister told her that neice was upset and certainly would never do that intentionally and the bitter B**** kept on and so sister says " well, Im sorry you feel that way" and then we all went into the theater. (which of course, they were in the same movie cause that is how these things always work).
What I wanted to say and didnt (because what would have been the point) is that I have been in a wheelchair (herniated discs in back and knee replacement) and unfortunatly so has my youngest daughter due to crohns disease. To wish someone has to suffer enough to be in a wheelchair? What kind of person are you? How awful to look at life through such a bitter, ugly filter that you would A. believe someone was intentionally so rude to you, and B. not accept a sincere apology about it.
We also had a couple of ladies move from sitting in front of us because my sister got really excited when she saw the surprise cameo appearance of her onscreen crush.
I dont know but maybe like one of my friends said one time, "Hey, maybe WE are the A$$holes?"
LOL, I dont think so but I guess anything is possible. Im not gonna be all bitter about it..
