Well, let's see now...I haven't blogged for a week or so. I have been really busy. The girls and I have been taking orders for cake pops and. Valentines day baskets and we are getting really busy! It has been a lot of fun and some days I can avoid the cake pops and some days I can't but I can usually just eat one. They are NOT cookies so I have some controll over them. I have had good days and bad but mostly good.
I decided to weigh once a week for awhile as too often just makes me sad. I'm trying to still get the Christmas pounds off and get back to my 70 pounds lost and beyond. I am walking and frank and I have been doing some kinect boxing which is always funny and a hell of a good workout so we are gonna do that a few days a week, too. The sun has been out here in. Northern california and as roofers, we could use a little rain to stir up business but we are limping along. I have been spending a lot of time in my office and today, I crossed many things off my to do list like w2 forms and taxes, truck registration and DMV appointments. It is good to get things done and take some pressure off. I am a HUGE procrastinator but have been inspired recently by COOPAH who is taking down a barn! Get it done, hell ya!
Frank and I are Hoping to take a little getaway for a day or so to Monterey, maybe or something. I might even leave my tablet home ( god, he would be so happy to have my attention!) Guess that answers that! I hope you guys are well, hanging tight and moving forward. Tomorrow is FEBRUARY! GAH!!!! I am getting closer to the 2 year mark and I am with CANNIE, so grateful to have found spark and you. If I don't comment or drop in or thank you, please know every outreach you do for me touches me and I feel ya. Hugs and love, Jan

It occurred to me today that if I don't want to weigh 230 pounds anymore, perhaps I might try NOT EATING like a 230 pound person! maybe I could eat like 150 pound person and then I might actually end up WEIGHING 150 pounds!!! Food for thought. So to speak.

Disclaimer: I do not advocate eating disorders. I recently lost a very close friend to anorexia so shut it if you have any criticism. Thanks:-)
Please don't take this wrong, but after losing 5 pounds in 3 days, I kinda get it. It takes me MONTHS to lose 5 pounds normally but then the flu sets in and you can barely sip water much less eat more than 1 saltine cracker. I was well under 1000 calories for 3 or 4 days, wasn't exercising or even barely moving except to go to the bathroom and voila, 5 pounds gone. When I saw that number I was kinda thinking it was worth it.
Then, I started thinking about how awful I felt. The dehydration made me exhausted, the best toilet paper was not soft enough to use that often, my breath was toxic, I didn't care about food at all (what the hell!!! Who wants to live like that!!!!), I had no energy, I couldn't even walk my dog! That ain't no way to live, people!!
If it takes me months to lose 5 pounds, that's OK. I can live with that. Really live.
And besides, I still love cookies!! We are not seeing each other right now but I know when I am ready, they will take me back.

Oh Lord, my friends..has the mama been through it! After a very stressful racing association meeting on Sunday where a few of our best friends quit in little boy temper tantrum crating a LOT of drama and upset. Had to take a tranquilizer to even be able to go to sleep. Then Monday, my cousins came over for a belated Christmas and I started feeling horrible. By 2, it was clear, I had the flu or something horrible like that. That was the beginning of three days of hell. The only g good that came out of it was I lost 5 pounds. I will take it.
I have been so weak I could barely type. It today, I got up, got dressed, went intoo my office which is at my house and went to the bank and the store. I am starting to be able to eat again and by this weekend I should be back to walking. I hate being sick so mush. I was forced Into immobility. I don't like being a sloth anymore. That's a good thing I learned but it feels good to be coming back. Thanks for caring about me!!
