I'm not whining, just stating some facts of where I'm at right now.
Last week I gained 6 pounds.
I have tried to run, starting at 1 minute at a time. It kills my knees. Can't do it.
I am going through a bad head space. I'm in "screw it" mode.
Got my annual blood work done. Everything was good but my cholesterol. It was 186 and now its 207. Not too high but defiantly need to get it back down. No eggs in the morning, back to eggbeaters.
I am not quitting, just continuing on. Gotta go back to my smaller steps so today, my plan is.....
Eggbeaters for breakfast
Salad for lunch with chicken and black beans and corn
Salmon for dinner with soy sauce and honey glaze and brown rice and broccoli
Make the fruit I have in the frig into fruit salad because I WILL eat it if I do that.
Walk stitchy tonight.
Do the 10 minute Kickboxing video this morning to jump start my day.
OK here I go.

Got home a few hours ago. I physically worked from 9 am to midnight each day. I cooked and cleaned and organized and sold raffle tix, t shirts and whatever else needed to happen. Thank GOD for my sister Becky and her husband and a few other gals. I never could have done it without them. I didnt drink too much, just a few a day over a period of several hours.
I was in physical pain, so much so that I could barely sleep at night. I couldnt sit by the end of the night because I would be unable to get back up. My feet, knees, hips and back were screaming. When I lay down at night, shooting pains went down my body from back to feet. This is not to complain, only to say that as much as I do now, I did not expect to have it kick my butt as much as it did.
I operated on a good breakfast, 5 hour energy drinks and pain pills as needed.
The food was amazing, the people were grateful and we did fabulous job. We made good money for our club and everyone was happy. A very very good event, all in all.
When I got home today, I had my blood work results from my doctor last week. My LDL cholesterol was a bit high so I obviously need to work on that. Any suggestions? do not tell me to eat oatmeal because I hate it so its not going to happen.
What is my plan this week?
5 FRUITS AND VEGGIES EVERY DAY UNTIL FRIDAY (when I go see my niece in a play for 2 days)
STAY WITHIN MY RANGES
NO BAKED GOODS, COOKIES ETC..
What did you do this weekend? What do you find difficult to do still?
What is your plan for this week.
Oh yeah, Happy OCTOBER tomorrow! How did that happen????

I thought maybe it would interesting for you to know what I am going to be cooking for 300 people for 3 days...
These are race car drivers, their families, their pit crews....
Thursday is a practice night which just means a lot of fun and guys B.S. ing...lol.
Big costco hot dogs, chili, watermelon and small bags of chips.
I also made 250 cake balls to take and a few batches of sugar free cookies for those who need/want them.
Friday, 200 pounds of tritip (seasoned and wrapped in foil, cooked on a huge bbq provided by the local fire department), store bought potato salad, fresh green salad and rolls and butter. (some sort of store bought cake for my birthday).
Saturday, take leftover tritip, chopped it up, grill some chicken breasts and chop it up, and make street tacos. heat corn tortillas up in foil in packs of 20. Pinto beans, tortilla chips and Nacho cheese sauce, lettuce, shredded cheese, onion, cilantro and salsa ( a bunch of store bought cookies).
Then I am done! We get up the next day, clean up all the tables, chairs, trailers etc and then whoever is left, we all go to breakfast and talk about what was great, what wasnt and how we can do it better next year. On the way home, my sister and I make notes while it is all fresh, then next year, we pull out the list and do it all over again!

Hello everyone! For those just now reading this, I created a blog so we could stay in touch and have some accountability, support and as needed, butt kicking and hugs to help us reach our goal.
Whether you are new or a past visitor, welcome!
I had an ok week, kept up on my excercise but had some moodiness issues which resulted in a few bad days with the candy corn. It is out of site and mind now so I am safe.
WEds. we leave for our National annual racing event where I will cook for 300 people for 3 days with my sister. It is a lot of work but alot of fun and I hope to see I am in much better shape stamina wise for this year.
My 51st bd is friday and as usual, I will be celebrating with many people that I love and a few I tolerate!
This week, my goal is stay steady and strong until I leave Weds. and to avoid too much fat, sugar and salt while I am away. I vow to have a good breakfast each day and to take a minute to myself and eat a decent lunch, drink a lot of water and get some rest!
Your homework is to think about a goal for October.
Really think about it ok? And I will see you hear next sunday to set our goals and get ready for a great October!
