Now Why Did Ya Have To Go And Do That? Huh?

Wednesday, October 24, 2012




Ohhhh Kroger, my Kroger. Going through the change? Yeah, I know...me too. I only wish you'd have picked a day when I felt better but hey, you kept me on my toes...aisle after aisle.

But seriously, did you really have to rearrange EVERY single aisle? I mean couldn't you have left the Big K pop in the same place it's been the last..um...decade or so? Could I at least have gotten a map? The only reason I asked is because the young man sent me on a goose chase from stem to stern and I still couldn't find the toilet paper. I was never too pleased to end up in enemy territory. You know, the aisle with all the detergents and dryer sheets that make me break out in hives when I walk by. Don't do it again or I'll have to report you! Oh, I forgive you...forgiveness isn't the question. I just don't want to spend the night circling the store like a crazed dazed vulture, chanting...Benadryl...Benadryl. You understand, don't you. I knew you would.

Thank you to the little old lady and man who were pretty much as confused as I was. All I wanted was some crackers for my chili. Sigh.

Then there was the lady trying to figure out how to make Jello Jigglers. After grilling two unsuspecting passersby, we finally figured out the recipe. Nice.

God bless you Kroger, ... thanks for being my crossword puzzle of the day. My brainwaves surely thank you and so do I! :)

Next time I'll wear my battle gear.

Spark on, O Sparky Ones!!! emoticon

    Just think of all the accidental exercise you got while searching! I hate it when they remodel stores that I'm used to. We just went through a complete remodel and enlargement of the near-by Wal-Mart. . . 11 months of frustration! I had to break down and laugh when I noticed a rack of bras in the middle of the toy section. . . sling shots, maybe?

    HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I haven't talked to you in like forever!!!! I've missed you -- just happened to see your blog and thought I'd drop in to see what's going on in your corner of the world and lo and behold ------ you're lost in Krogers!*!*!*! lol !!!!!!! so --- life is good --- huh???????????????

Hope you're having a marvelous month and that your chilli soup and crackers were delicious! you certainly "earned" a delicious meal after all that! I just dread it when they re-model or re-arrange a store that I have memorized --- I like everything to stay right where I know it is -- I guess that makes me a creature of habit - but that's ok with me!

Have a wonderful day ---

Jane

    I bet you could count all of the walking around the store as cardio. It's frustrating when you memorize where everything is in a store, and then they change it. You probably walked half a mile just looking for the TP!

Those Two!!!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I typed in my trusty search engine, these words: What does the average person weigh?

One site said...185, while another mentioned that industry standards..you know, airlines, elevators, etc. They deem 150 lbs as average weight.

Okay, so ..if I'm 200 lbs overweight...that means I have the skinny me..(at 150 lbs), then an obese 200 pounder on my back. Or...I could get the one big fatty off my back and break it down to ...hmm...let's see....2 skinny models at 100 lbs each! Yeah!!!



Well...one skinny 100 lb model's been with me longer than the other. The last little hussy hopped on within the last 10 years or so..due to stress, etc.

So let's see how these numbers add up. I think I've got it. The skinny me shaking off or minus those two twiggy models = a whole new me! Haha Well, however you wanna' say it,..you do the math. All I know is I've got to lose those gals. Get offa' me, Tilda and Hilda!!!

So, um...once the girls..stop tailing me...I'll be free. Haaaaaaaaaaaa.

Hilda likes chocolate and Tilda hates exercise. Bitches.

Have a great day, everybody. :)))

    Hmm, Hilda or Tilda? Which one to get rid of first...???
Surprising that they're both so skinny after all that chocolate and no exercise.

Love That Food Tracker!

Monday, October 22, 2012

Know why?

Accountability...that's why. When I use the food tracker, I see how much and what I'm putting into my body and I like it. I also find that I'm consciously and mentally more aware of what I'm doing, as far as eating. I'm not just mindlessly throwing food into my mouth because I know I have to keep track of it.

Boundaries. Boundaries are important, essential and necessary. We all need them. I've found that boundaries don't limit me, they help me grow. They keep me safe. I like that.

The part I like best about the Nutritional Tracker is that it keeps track of the vitamins I get from food and it shows me where I'm lacking.

Emotionally, it makes me feel great to know that I'm doing something good for myself. I want to be around for a long time and in order to do that, I need to be healthy.

I will be a happy tracker today because it makes me feel good. My body feels better, too.

Have a great week, everybody!

(Now if I can just develop a relationship with that Fitness Tracker, well...then we'll be doin' somethin'!) haha

    I think the food tracker is much friendlier than the fitness tracker too - at least I've developed a better relationship with it. It even gave me an "atta girl!" last night and let me stay within my limits, even after the pizza I ate!

    Nice! I think the food tracker is the single most important tool here.
Tracking exercise is secondary. Don't stress over it. All in due time.
Good going!!!

How Will I Measure Up?

Friday, October 19, 2012



Today is measuring day. Quite appropo, if you ask me...since it's cold, wet and dreary outside. The weather matches my "measuring mood". I don't like to measure. Ugh. I will measure today, even if I don't like it.

Let's see. Most of what I'm going to do ... in terms of health, I don't like...(physically). However, mentally, with the reasoning part of my brain, it makes perfect, logical sense.

The emotional part of my brain simply wants to bitch, moan, whine and complain. I will send it to time out so that I can accomplish something toward my good health. Sigh.

My pedometer needs a new battery. My scale is broken and now, I will measure.

I hope you know, I am smiling while typing this because one thing I'll never lose and that's my sense of humor. My sense of humor is very obese and it will stay that way. Haaaaaaaa

There, that makes me feel better...because this morning I was pissed off because after tracking my meager breakfast, I found that my simple little cup of chocolate milk has a whopping 180 calories. Sigh. Tweak the system...yup...I shall.

Have a happy sparky kinda day, y'all.

What? You thought I was gonna share my measurements with you? Hah! Are ya nuts? :) Not on your life..hahahaa

    I love your sense of humor! And my measurements will NEVER become public knowledge - heck, I don't even look at them! In my mind, that measuring tape is a cat toy to drag and let Jake and Nellie chase - the best use I've ever made of it!
Stay strong and determined!

    Hopefully measuring day went okay :)
Never mind the scale, but go ahead and get a new battery for your ped. These are really helpful and motivational.
All the best!

Okie Dokie, then...!!!!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Here I am again.

I'm at a loss for words but they'll come.

When I heard the still small voice of the holy spirit say, "Got any fight left in ya?"...well, that's all it took. (just enough to piss me off) "Yeah, yeah I do!!!" Know why? I'm not dead yet, that's why...and as long as there's still breath in me, I'll keep fighting.

So, today...I begin again for the umpteenth trillionth time and that's okay.

I'm here again and I just tracked my oatmeal. Haaaaaaaaaa

Ding Ding!!!

Okie dokie then!
