Day 6...

Food: Trail Mix. Nuff said.
Water: Boo-yah!
Fitness: Rockstar
Attitude: At really high altitude.

I miss my Hunny. I get to see him in 1 hr and a half.

Ahem, to clarify my husband doesn't say those nasty things, those were my inner demons projecting.

Accountability Day #1

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I emoticon you Nan and Emily for sharing yours. It helps me remember perspective.

My Daily Goals:

emoticon Calories 2, 260 - 2, 610
I burn a minimum of 11, 000 a week now.

Spark has mentioned that they do not recommend that. They have a cap on your cardio/day. So, I kinda realize that I have officially gone from sedentary to holy-cow-active.

My intake used to be 1250 - 1500 so this range my belly doesn't like. It's DOUBLE!

Anywho, I'm at 1501 and the only thing I want to beef up with is doritos and we won't go there.

emoticon Water: 10 cups a day
I figured out how to time the rewards of hydration. I found out my appointment to discuss surgery options to get a sling inserted is April. It feels far enough away to forget about it. Then myhubby heard the message and gave me the "We need you to take care of yourself, you're irreplaceable" spiel.
Still gonna ignore it.

emoticon Rest:
I am exhausted by 7 and you know that I pride myself on being the night owl and my favourite hour is 3 a.m. So you KNOW I'm fighting a 7 o'clock bedtime. Well, I can only make it to 10:30 and hubby is home at 11:30. After a few nights of 'almost' making it my hubby grounded me. Apparently the world will not seize to revolve if I have an early night once in a while.
Who knew?
it sends a signal that I'm avoiding him by staying up so close to his arrival only to bail.
Not a good signal to send to my Angel. No.

What else?
emoticon Oh! Fitness:
I have a theory (oh, what can it be oh wise one)
Fitness burn stuff is useless. It's, like, 95% of what goes in your mouth. Fitness is just for the feel-good vibes.
I burn a minimum of 1500 and the weight is not dropping off. It's behaving only as long as I'm keeping my intake low.

(Well, I don't know how this will work, but,t hat cinnamon roll was the size of my face. I think it should be counted as 400 calories...which puts me at 1900 intake for the day. Wait...more crab salad...let's as another 300. 2100...I feel good. It's all good.)

emoticon Attitude:
As long as I keep my biznotch on a leash. The ones that I work with that don't keep their attitude reigned will remain to live another day. I just have to remember that I do not want to say, "Heads up, Precious...keep your biznotch on a leash or I'll have to put your biznotch down."
I will be loving.
(I will be loving not vengeful...I will? YES, I will be a good girl.)

We're back to a 2000 intake today. I can't finish this cinnamon roll the size of my head.

That's where I'm at. Tomorrow, I have a day off and then it's a week of chaos. I get to play maid at home. See, the washing machine and dryer are mystical being and I - ONLY I - know the secret password to unlock their powers...apparently that includes sorting, folding, putting away, bathrooms and floors too. I'm looking forward to it though.

Tonight when I pulled into the drive after a long, awesome day with a narrow escape from having my car impounded for doing 100 in a..60 (km/h). The dude that was following me got caught. I figured I best count that as a blessing and slow the frik down so that my family will get to see me. That was more important than my arrival time. Anyway, when I backed into my drive way Jedi Master was in her kitchen with one weak light on (How clean are the half-blind 94 year olds dishes when they've been the her? I just thought of that now) Anyway, anyway, I sat in silence (yes, silence is scarey) and I watched her. I saw her stand and turn to watch out her window at all the life going on in my house. It was going to be insane when I went in there and I was nervous. Her she was longing to be wrapped up in her young family after years of surviving all her siblings and some of her own children, some of her children have moved on to be thriving members of the community. Pillars of kindness. There she was thinking she was contributing nothing anymore to our world just puttering around her house. She reminded me that at the end of the day all that matters is love.

I hopped out of my car and mauled my family, then I had a shower cuz my family is picky about stinky hugs. I'm back to loving on them.

{She's sitting at her window in the dark and watching us again...I think we should hula hoop for her.}

    True, true, all we need is love. Given and received, the greatest blessing.

I love your neighbor! My mom will be 90 this April. She has such a great memory and I love to hear her tell about her own childhood and her memories of the 1920's up to now.

Drive safe, watch out for the slick spots!

Who knew? " one told me.

I love your humour. The only thing I would be thinking of at that calorie point would be doritos. The zesty cheese kind. Great minds! Or chocolate cake with rich chocolate frosting.

And I agree- don't need to go there!

Food Skank

Friday, January 11, 2013

Quick note to say, "Hi, I'm not dead! I have not dropped off the face of the earth OR been abducted by green dudes (bummer on the last, cuz, I'm curious)"

So, I'm ridiculously sleep deprived and Sleep Deprivation makes me a skank. Any food that walks through my door I just smile and open wide.

Nasty. I know, I know, but, oh-so-frikkin' true!

I'm justifying my indiscretions and realize I'm doing semi-tallies on my caloric consumption.

It kinda goes like:

"So, I had a coffee, but, just a bit of milk. Ugh...I guess it was a half a cup, but, it really didn't do a good job of making my nasty coffee sexy ...I'll take an one ounce caloric hit on that coffee. That's all I'll own.
Then for breakfast...what the h3ll did I eat for breakfast? *yawn*. Wow, it must not have been good. I think it was...a bran muffin..well, something was under all that butter...

note to self: bran muffins give me flatulence like 5 hours after consumption. Which, (FYI) is friggin' embarrassing when your boss decides today would be a great day to play friendly and you end up having all the chambermaids migrate to the room you're cleaning for some moral boosting. Which includes topics of sex, hotty factor and kids. In that order.
awkward time for the bran to kick in...
Okay so for lunch. OMG... I was trying to impress the new girl by not eating my whole entire raisin scone. Why? Am I hoping we hook up? No. No, in fact I want her in my corner so that together us two really cute blonds can shut down that hormone laden dude that makes us coffee hoping for sex. Yes, my husband knows and he had proposed that I apply for a job at his work because the pay is better (PLEASE, my hunny just wants to crush lewd dudes).
Where was I?
The scone.
So, I ate most of it and then took a couple bites of my apple. My tummy was warring with the muffin and my brain was thinking that I really, really love my job but almost doubling my salary for 3 months of hectic might be worth avoiding lewd dude and the mean girls.

Mean girls (Yes, we're on another Rabbit Trail of thought, again.) HOLY CRAP women are so insecure they turn vicious on the new girls. Mind you I've always picked independent jobs so, this team thing is so 'campy-fun' to me, but, the con is inferiority complexes. I really, really, really wish that random slapping wasn't illegal. The mean-spirited things that come out of some of these women's mouths breaks my heart.

So, I'm getting stressed out just thinking about leaving a job I love at this moment because;

A. I want to see lewd dude totally get his just desserts when his girlfriend finds out he has been trying to hit up house wives.
B. I want to whip those mean biznotches into shape. I have them trained not to speak ill of anyone without me taking the underdog's side. I don't tolerate them kicking someone when they're down. Which is more respect than they deserve when their dirty laundry gets hung to dry I will try to help them save face. Well, not the lewd dude. There is just something so pathetic about a dude that hits on married women. They're lazy.

So, hubby said those are not good reasons to stick it out at the job.

I kinda sorta think it's enough to make me happy...

Anyway, job choices and being a Food Skank have me a bit deflated.

I tried hooping a Dance Party Friday but I'm so tired that I am not co-ordinated. I videoed some and then I thought, "Stop posting videos People think you're vain, simple and annoying."

But what would I think?
Isn't that who I'm trying to keep above board?

How about we (I) teach those insecure, imaginary biznotches a lesson that they can not, will not, or ever suck the joy out of my day.

I'm too tired to mother biznotches the world over. What were their mother's doing instead of teaching their children to love others anyway?

Not hula hooping, that's for sure.

SO, I think I need to figure out how to accommodate sleeping in my that I can focus on things like responsible job decision direction and how to more efficiently make the biznotches my biznotches.

WOW, lots going on at work for you. So glad that you are trying to curb the wagging tongues. Such a good example you are to your co-workers.

I love your raw honesty in your blogs! You and your bran muffin make me laugh!

I'm with you on the sleep deprivation. I should get off Spark right now and go to bed - if I'm going to get 6 hours of sleep tonight.

    You are such a beautiful spirit, and the underdogs where you work are sure lucky to have you there fighting for them ... Allowing the sunshine, your sunshine, to disinfect all that would contaminate the most innocent if allowed.
Bravo to you for being true to yourself and to others. It may seem at times to go unnoticed ... but it is not. It surely is not.

Get your sleep ... get lots and lots of sleep ... and then let your light shine for all it's worth!

    I think many of us can have a love-hate relationship with our job. There are things that I love about mine and I try to remember them as needed to stay positive and focused. BUT...there are times that I am so overwhelmed and frustrated that it takes every fiber of my self control not to stomp and scream obscenities at everyone that is impeding my progress with their stupidity, lack of planning or sheer laziness. I have to remember that most of the time we are a well-oiled machine with awesome results. Oh and uh, I work with all MEN. Uh huh, young, funny, irreverent men that NEVER get bitchy or gossip. When I remember this, I cut the offender some slack.

But YOU....oh those mean girls need to be slapped or you COULD pray for them. How else can you convert a mean girl to a caring one?

What kind of work would you do at your hubby's employer? Anything fun? Double the salary sounds enticing...

Too much for you to think about without sleep. Get your rest. emoticon

    How is that you are able to express frustrations in such an entertaining way? Maybe sleep deprivation isn't so bad after all. Unfortunately, I know that it really is, though. I hope you can get some sleep (REAL sleep) SOON. I also hope that you can get some clarity with your job decision.
