Upped the water and made my breakfast bigger and voila! Full, and content Lizzy. Thank God for miracles. I live all day long within reach of food. Today I was busy some rare chores and it helped me be distracted. Yippee!
Weigh-In is tomorrow and I just managed to fumble back onto the 'wagon'.

My sparknutrition reports:
Day 1: Protein under, important, pay attention.
Day 2: Protein under, important, pay attention.
Day 3: and on and on and on!
Today I feel like eating not just everything in the fridge, but, the fridge itself. I may have mentioned to my daughter she was next on the list. Her response is what woke me to reality. "Mom, I am so hungry I could eat you and Dad!" Now, her Dad is massive so this warranted some time of reflection. Why is my daughter so hungry? She has eaten well. The same things as me today and I feel.....starved. Hmmmm...let's take a moment to investigate that protein blurb from my nutrition report. So, it looks like protein has my attention, "Fine! Happy now?!"
Hopefully it'll curb potential cannibalism.

It's gone! Spring sure helped this week, I actually find reasons to get out. Being a S.A.H.M. kinda gives me the incentive on a normal day but add sunshine and melting mountains of white gunk and we got us a HaPpY mama! I'm so ecstatic with the weigh-in today! 5lbs?! Yippee!!
That was WORK!
I don't remember there being that much work slapping that weight on.
I pulled the bricks of butter out of my fridge and lined them up on the table...5 bricks. Two of them jumped out of my bra...the other three I think came off of my calves....the third must of came off of someplace I can't see...but, hey, I don't miss it so I'm glad it's gone.
What am I going to reward myself with? I hit my goal early....ya, I know, poor me - not. Well, I think I'll get that tire fixed on my bike...I should check into those trailers I see and then I can stuff my babies in there.
5lbs?! Wow, that is deserving of a HapPy DaNcE.

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....BUT DON'T YOU QUIT!!!!!

Mr. Right is at work today and he has the family van and my precious laptop. I'll be doing 'church' at home with the wee folk and not so wee folk (the eldest has officially outgrown me - bah humbug). Then I want to go for a ridiculously long walk in this fabulous +5C weather. Chores and homework are in there somewhere, but, I think that I can avoid them.
I feel so energetic!
This is fantastic! I made myself a delicious smoothie as 'Rip' did when I went down for my visit. I forgot the honey! Who forgets sugar? Crazy people...
So far today I'm not feeling as though I'm starving to death so. I have not been in the 'range' of caloric intake yet! It feels as though my tummy is adjusting.
Thanks for the encouragement ladies.
I'm liking the ideas for pampering, I mean rewards when I reach my goals. I think I'll do 5lb increments. I think this pasty white girl may be interested in a tan, pedometer, some work out vids (I hate trying to tackle the Wii tv and room to get space to work out), that brimmed hat (one that does not make me look like Kim Mitchell), I LOVE the makeup idea, NOW I'VE FOUND THE GROOVE....sandals, a new brown leather purse that match those sandals......
