Annoying and cuteness

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Head still giving me hassles.

The combination of impending TOM, weather and holiday probably has *nothing* to do with it.

And on the TOM note. Of course Mother Nature has decided once again to take me off schedule so that she can join me of my 1/2 marathon on Sunday.

I think I would rather be taking a nap. Preferably with these two....

    I don't think I'd be able to sleep with them either! I'd want to play with them and I'd be too busy saying Awwwww!! Sorry about your headache and the timing of your TOM. (SO GLAD that ship has sailed for moi, but now I have "ol lady" kinks in my neck instead) Perhaps you could turn the 1/2 marathon into a sort of feminine hygiene commercial replete with white clothing and daisy fields and...........what?...........shut up Lynn? emoticon

Happy Thanksgiving sweetie!! emoticon emoticon

    Rest and get well quickly!

Being the self-proclaimed "King of All Idiots" I must confess that I when I see "TOM" my first thought is the male name Tom and why is it being used here and then suddenly I think "Oh yea, the female thing".

Here we are. AGAIN!

Friday, November 16, 2012

So now I am at the weight that I notoriously plateau, get really frustrated and gain it all back. Plus the holidays are here AND I have a 1/2 marathon next Sunday. And since I still haven't figured out the mystery of weight gain after a race....

Crap.

To help combat this I have informed or involved more people than normal of my plans.

Also when some of my habitual saboteur co-workers offer me cake, pizza, brownies or (like today) homemade caramel I tell them no...unless they are planning on helping me stuff my fat ass in a plane seat heading to Scotland. Oh, and I get the arm rest.

I hate to be so blunt with them, but sometimes it is the only thing that gets through. I still have a few that have come back repeatedly even after such answers.

Makes. Me. Crazy.

So here is to not sliding back, not maiming anyone and finishing next weekend's 1/2 marathon with a PR.

    Sometimes you just have to be blunt! I found that I have to as well at work and with family sometimes. It's not always easy, but it's easier then trying to work off the crap I ate. And sometimes, I give in.....the joys of nummy foods!

Take the 1/2 head on, I think it's great that you are doing this! I'd love to get involved with them here, but I keep holding myself back for a few reasons.....nobody to do them with and, well, still not confident in myself to do them - I can't run due to knee problems, so it's a mountain I have to get over myself

    Being blunt is one of the best things we can do. Sometimes being nice doesnt cut it.

WOO HOO!!! 1/2 next sunday!! I am so excited for you

    You win own the 1/2. You will get over your plateau with me. Not literally with me... like, you can't use me to climb over it - but you know.

I'm ever so droll.

So I've got 3 more pounds before I'm back where I SHOULD be losing from. My plateau weight. I'm determined to get under 200 by the end of the year. We got this. emoticon

Wacky morning

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Okay, the crowing rooster alarm that keeps getting louder until you do a math problem isn't nearly as funny anymore. I still like the idea of having to do a math problem before being able to hit the snooze button, but I'm *going* to have to pick a different sound to wake up to.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
I don't know how farmers do it!

And for those following my attempts at different Hungry Girl oatmeal breakfast in the morning....

This morning was Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal. I know for some this would be really yummy, but it was too pumpkin-y for me. Since I needed to head to work and was running out of time...I went with a protein drink.

emoticon

So not the same.

I will attempt to not be cranky, but unless someone brings me a work puppy stat then I can't promise anything!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Have a great day everybody!

    Sorry the oatmeal didn't work out, I still might have to give it a try though, I LOVE pumpkin! I have 3 HG cookbooks at home, I'll have to look for it! Oatmeal never fills me up in the morning though, so I'd probably do it as a "snack" or something.

I used to live in Key West, FL and roosters were EVERYWHERE!! I remember the mornings of them waking us up......no math problems to solve to stop them either! Good luck finding a new "sound" to wake up to!

    We live in a subdivision and our neighbors down the street have a rooster and chickens...I love it, it is like "mini farm". I did find myself wondering if their closest neighbors do though.

You cranky? I find that hard to believe.

    The oatmeal sounds yummy and unless the protein shakes has some good flavor and maybe some yogurt I'd pass. Hope you day gets better.
