So I kinda screwed up tonight. I went back for a second, although, small helping of spagetti and meatsauce.
Why did I do that? Well, for one I was just hungry. But, I could have chosen a piece of fruit, or something else.
I dont know.
I have only walked twice this week...and only about half as long as I normally do. My left foot is now killing me. The right one healed so I guess the left felt LEFT out...wawawa...
This is a totally different kind of pain. This is right in the bottom of the heel, feels almost like bone on bone when I take a step.
Really ticks me off that I finally decide to get in shape and walk and now my feet keep rebelling against me.
Well, anyway, I have had a most problematic day. First I had to call and get my phone carrier to change my phone voicemail back to empty and start over, cause apparently I forgot my pin, even though I didnt, and why do I need a pin for my voicemail??? Anyone? Is there a way to just turn that off? But got it fixed and am totally UNhappy with my recorded greeting, but went on, I dont get that many voicemails anyway.
Then only got about 40 minutes on the track. Before the foot just couldnt handle more.
So, then home, to put my new ace bandage on....only problem is, after about an hour of searching every room in the house, its no where to be found.
I just bought that about 2 weeks ago when my other foot began to hurt....I dont know where it is.
So, have the glassman coming tomorrow between 8am and 5pm to change the glass and knowing the run of luck I have had lately, he will probably show up at 4:50pm.
I really need to go to Lowes and pay my bill and I really need to go to Wally and get a new foot bandage and some nail polish remover, etc....
So many things I need to do.
Like walk and stop going back for second helpings of food I shouldnt have had in the first place.
Really have got to amp it up this week. I mean really!! So focusing on toning and weights tomorrow.
And really cutting back the calories....really!!

Today I have spent mostly cleaning. Still have lots to catch up on, and it seems no matter how much I clean, there is always something I overlooked.
Feeling let down cause I didnt get to walk today and frustration building up. I wish the stoooooopid insurance company would have sent this stoooopid glass man already to fix my car window.
If I go to the trouble of removing the tarp, I have to put it right back on when I return, and its no fun driving with all that air blowing in...or rain.
So, today I am going to just focus on weights.
Might ride my bike later, and just try to count down the days til Wednesday when they replace the broken window and I can get back to the walking track.
Lost another pound, but the phenomenon is....I dont seem to be losing any inches.
I measured all the areas about a month ago and I swear I dont think I have lost an inch....how can that be possible???
My pants feel alot looser, so I believe I am losing in my upper thighs and around my hips, but tummy, while I can tell a difference, doesnt seem to have budged inch wise....
Oh well, time to really start focusing on toning.
Hope everyone is having a great day.

I just thought this was cute....but not really true for me, I really only like walking shoes and flip flops, but I do like my Timberland boots and my skecher fur boots....I am not a big shopper.
I guess when you are overweight for so long you just get out of the habit, mostly because going in to try clothes on is more of a hassle than a joy.
I have mostly purchased my clothes online the last few years.
Right now I am really only into workout clothes, and maybe a day will come, hopefully soon when I will be interested in buying some nice clothes.
Mostly I just dread shopping.
Today has been a really bad day for me....not as far as calories goes, cause I havent eaten much, two yogurts, a banana, a small leftover porkchop and a bowl of honey nut cheerios, and some coffee.
I didnt walk any, and this is two days in a row.
I am totally peeved at my insurance company for making me wait a full 6 days to get the window replaced in my car and so, of course, it rained tonight, and I had to put plastic tarp over my window.
So, to go walking in the morning will mean to remove it and then replace it again.
Such a hassle.
The bad part of the day started right around 1pm and has gone downhill from there.
Sometimes I guess we are so busy trying to make changes in our bodies that we neglect changes that might need to be made in our lives.
At least I do.

Today started out as your typical Thursday, I got up, I went to the walking track, I walked an hour.
I was feeling good, blood pumping, good music had me upbeat, the grass from the city workers weedeaters didnt bother me too much.
So, around 825am, I am done with my walk. I get into my car....put my key in, and I might have rolled down the back windows to let some fresh air in, I cannot recall that to save my life.
But, I had gotten a text on my phone, so I was checking it, the car isnt running, and KAAAABAMMMMM!!!
From left, right, front or back, something totally blasted my drivers window out of my car.
I guess my first instinct was to flinch, haha, but I cannot even be sure what I did.
There was a young employee of the city weedeating in a spot near my car, maybe 30 feet, if that.
He was in an area by the fence that had just a small spot of grass...but I honestly think that a rock, or most likely, from what we could tell, a some rubber "whatever" they use to pave with.
Because the area he had been weedeating was surrounded by it, and so there were several pieces of it found around my door.
So, I get out and hes walking with his back to me, away, toward the other side of the fence.
I didnt know what to do, I call honey, who of course was sleeping soundly, having just gotten in from work and into bed around 4am.
He comes and insists I call the city police, due to possiblity of insurance hassle.
The cop asks me some questions and then he calls over the young weedeating worker....which totally bothered me,(at first) cause, he is a very young man, and his superiors were on the other side of the area, and I have never once seen them weedeat with cars near that parking area. And I happen to know he has a small baby and I wouldnt want them to say anything to reprimand him or anything financial, I am quite sure the city has insurance for all that....... well, yes ok, he shouldnt have been weedeating in an area where cars where so close.....and there was actually one even closer to him. But, I said, hmm, why should I feel bad for him.
He had to have seen me get out of my car, and a gentleman walking by stopping to look at my window.
and the pisser of it was....those men, the workers, who see me out there every single day, not a one of them offered to come over and say "Hey whats the matter"...or see if I had car problems or anything.
Then my blood boiled after I thought about that. But me, being the kind hearted person that I am, went over later to that young man and told him that I in no way blamed him, I had no way of knowing if the rock came from his weedeater or where it came from or if it was a rock. But, I am still harbouring some resentment over his "ok, whatever, its all good," attitude!!!
But all is good!! luckily I only recieved a small piece of glass in my left thumb and a very small nick on my right pinky.
But its going to be Wednesday before I can get my glass replaced in my car.
I still had a good walk. Got a good workout in and other than getting held up in the hot sun for 15 minutes by paving in the city, going to our towns one and only conviencnce store, for coffee, only to find out they had no damn coffee.....this makes twice this has happened and I am planning on speaking to the manager and finding out why a place that serves truckers doesnt have fresh coffee all the time!!! and that whole pesky getting my window shattered, it was an ok morning.
After leaving the store I ran into my good friend, ((the one I spoke of in last blog)) and he had me laughing so hard about maybe I could tell the insurance guy that the weedeating worker also totally cut my tires up with his weedeater, and I need new tires....haha, I forgot I was angry over no coffee.
And I do still plan to walk tomorrow......and everyday, I will just make sure if I see weedeating city workers, to park on the other side and maybe wear a protective helmet.
I lost another pound, I will officially weigh in on Tuesday, hoping its at least one more by then.

So, yes I am well aware that I went over my calories again, just ever so slightly.
Not bad, about 60 calories.
The thing that bugs me is, I am still struggling with going out to eat to make the right choices.
For the most part I have learned what is and isnt the right thing to order, etc.
But today, I went with my friend to the pizza place, and the last time I was there I stuck strictly with salad, even if I did have regular ranch dressing.
But today, I had a slice of philly cheese steak pizza, thin crust and a slice of pepperoni, thin crust, along with my salad.
And while this isnt the end of the world.
It still bothers me that I cant seem to avoid those items.
I just kicked myself for eating that pizza. But I am not going to dwell too much on it, every other time I have gone out to eat, for the most part, I have ordered the items I know are probably lower in calories, avoided bread baskets and the big super calorie filled buns.
But, I guess its a life long learning process and I am going to refuse my friends offer to eat there from now on.
If she cant come to Subway or go to the local place that makes a fantastic grilled chicken salad, then I wont be able to have lunch with her.
At least until I have lost some more weight and feel more secure in my ability to make better choices.
I got my one hour walk in today, knock on wood that my foot is healed, have had no further issues with it and just hope I dont.
The blog I posted yesterday about my friend, well, he continues to amaze and amuse me.
He is so silly, just like me, I think that is one of my favorite things about him, that he just gets my nutty sense of humor and returns it as quickly.
So, I had to share a little conversation we had last night.
While talking about walking in our local park, I was telling him about some of the great nature trails in the Interstate Park nearby.
And about how I look forward to the leaves turning, etc.
So, here is pretty much the conversation....
"He---I used to go up to that park and rent paddle boats and take my daughter.
Me--did you know that you can now also rent canoes and ride on the lake.
He---No, I didnt, but I dont care much for a canoe, I prefer a jon boat.
Me---why is that.??
He--well, they have a flat bottom and arent as easy to flip over.
He---I prefer a flat bottomed boat---but not a flat bottomed woman!!
Me---why, are flat bottomed women harder to flip over?
Well, I guess I wont share the rest as it goes a little dark from there, haha, but I guess you had to be there.
Loving life, Loving my friends and our nutty conversations.
And looking forward to walking in the morning.
Hope everyone else is having a nice evening.
