So, tonight, I decided, its time to do some SPRING CLEANING...and I started with my Facebook or in this case, FAKEBOOK, I deleted 9 friends, and on SP, I went from 133 friends, to 44....I just didnt see the point.
I just never talked to the people and didnt have time to comment or like, or give goodies or read blogs or check their progress, etc.
Then I cleaned out my car and tomorrow, its gonna be the closets...
Time to eliminate the clutter and that unfortunately includes "friends"....or so to speak.
Heck, I had 345 FB friends, I might have 5 real life friends!!!!
Yes, I did go over my calories today...which really surprises me, because everything I had, with the exception of ONE bottle of light beer, was pretty spot on my food plan.
I did have a snack of peanut butter and jelly.
What brought that on...?
But, I feel pretty good about the day.
I am still stressing over not being able to walk, I have 8 days til my doctors appointment.
I cannot wait to hear what he tells me, if my vitamin d is up and if the bone is healing.
If the news is bad, then the next step is the electrical stimulation of the bone...and then, as a last resort,,, surgery.
Im just wishing away the days!!!
I drove around by the walking track today....the sun was out and what a day it would have been for a long happy walk...ohhhhhh welllllll.
I have had a pretty good day otherwise.
Just hoping the stressful home issues hurry up and get resolved.
But they arent driving me to overeat.
Tomorrow...increase my strength training.
I have missed it.

So, I spent most of this sunny day, inside, haha...but even though we had sun, we had little warmth.
This weekend I see we are due for some sun and maybe it will be warm.
I had a pretty fair day...didnt get a second workout in, and only a quick morning workout...but, had stuff to do and hair to get did....
I had Subway for dinner, and I am going back tomorrow for the double chicken chopped salad for lunch!!!
And overall, it was an ok day...
Feel like the higher calories SP allowed me is helping me more than I thought it would....because now that I know I can eat more calories...I havent been going over, in fact, I am staying pretty much where I had my calories set before, maybe a hundred or two more, but the foods I am choosing are much healthier, fish, yogurt, spinach, oranges.....so I have done ok...day 2 of this streak....is that a streak?? when does a streak become a streak?
sorry to those who thought they were gonna see streaking pics hahaa

Today has been a pretty good day. While I did sleep later than I had wanted, I got in a good morning workout.
Have stuck to my calories, gotten in my veggies and water.
And other than a slight evening headache, have felt pretty good all day.
I really feel like I am back to where I need to be.
I revamped my Spark nutrition plan a little...reset my short term goal and Sp gave me more calories in the day.
So, I normally change it back to try to stay under 1600 a day.
I decided the 2100 SP allowed me might be a little high, but I am gonna go with it...and so, sticking as closely to their food plan as possible today, I am still around 1600 which is where I try to stay.
I guess just knowing, I still have the option of eating a little more today makes me feel like I have been successful.
I am full, and not wanting anymore to eat today.
But might have my last cup of milk and maybe an orange.
Tomorrow is beauty day and I always feel better on those days...
My stylist is so great, she laughs at my lame jokes and tells me how proud she is of my hard work.
So, I realize, I have alot more support out there than I sometimes realize.
I know my friends are always behind me.
So, overall, today was ok...its been cold, but the sun did pop out for a bit.
I did some online checking and am going by my Lowes store tomorrow to check on buying a lounge lawn chair...
Knowing that soon the sun will pack some real heat and stay around for more than a few mins...I cant wait to soak up the sun, and cant wait to start seeing some success on the scale yet again.
And the one sad note to today, the death Shain Gandee, the 21 year old who appears in MTV Buckwild tv show.
He was my favorite on that show and I recall my post on FB after watching him for the very first time..."Shain reminds me of every boy I ever knew in high school"...
He was a nice young man and came from a good respectful Christian family.
His father taught him hard work and gave him good life advice.
He will be missed on that show and in his community.
I know he wasnt anyone I really knew, but he was a real person and he made that show.
Well, its sad when anyone dies at such a young age.
Hope everyone had a good day and didnt get tricked or fooled too much.
I had a good day and thats no joke!!!!

these two pics, standing in green shirt... taken 3/29/2013...not very good pics, i was standing on my porch and just clicked these pics while looking into my glass door, lol, but, they show me...how i am right now...and while i do look better, i dont look how i know i can, i dont feel like i should, because i have allowed myself to take too much time off and ive used the excuse of my foot and ive used the cold weather and so on, but now, its just time to go back to the way it was in sept, october, november, and december....when i worked harder than ever and i lost weight....
70 pounds less....
and its time to continue the journey....
its time to see more weight come off...
this isnt over for me, it has felt for some time like i have just stopped, given up????
no...given in to cravings, yes, given in to lack of motivation, yes, given in to excuses, yes...
but never given up!!!
as one sparker blogged today, tomorrow is april fools day, but no foolin this time
my broken foot will no longer be an excuse for me to take time off from my battle
and i will keep fighting
i will post more pics soon of an even thinner, healtier me!!!

So, old man winter and Mother Nature must be having a battle of wills or maybe they are in cahoots to play April Fools Day jokes on us all!!!
The snow is continuing here and reported to get heavier into the night, its miserably cold and makes me feel even more dark and depressed.
But I did fix a nice healthy veggie laden dinner for myself, and get in a workout.
Did some laundry and cleaned a little.
Seems theres just not much to do anymore.
I am very bored in my life.
I am struggling with this personal issue...of overcoming boredom and lonliness and depression.
I am usually pretty upbeat, but lately I cant find the humor in much.
I keep hoping once summer gets here, I will feel better, or differently, but I am unsure at this point.
Wondering if antidepressants are in order....
I know more exercise will help, and once I am able to walk again, I will have that at least.
So, overall, this day is pretty miserable....cold, wet, snowy, dark, no tanning bed, no sunlight, not much to do at all.
Wollow in self pity I suppose.
And keep searching for answers....and a laugh or two.
I dont really feel bad...I feel ok...just really wishing there was something to do.
or that this dark cloud would finally lift and move on....
Tuesdays are usually weigh in day for me, although I think I will skip tomorrow.
I really see no point in it, I know I havent lost since last week and I sure dont want to see it if I have gained.
Maybe one more full week of healthier food choices and exercise will make some bit of difference.
I really want to start losing weight again.
I am pretty sick and tired of being stuck in a rut.
