I love Wendys. I like that I can get a spicy chicken sandwich and a medium fry for about 900 calories. It's a lot but it feels me up and is usually a treat I give myself about once a week. However, I started to pay attention to the carbs today and realized that not only are the fries about 50 carbs but so is the sandwich. I think it's about time to switch to something else. Myabe still go get the fries (they are my favorite part), then do a home made chicken sandwich. It's time to start doing some more research and find something that works for me.
Other than that, I've got a busy Thursday. Since I get off work at Midnight on Wednesday night, I have to try to stay up as late as I can on Thursday. Well now that means I get to go get my tire repaired. I walked outside of work yesterday and it was completely flat. I also need to get new brake pads so we can replace my brake pads this week.
About three weeks and I get to go on vacation. I'm excited and nervous!

Man, I've spent the last six weeks talking about how I'm ready to get back on the horse, how things will change for me. And I just haven't done it. I was sick this last week and I ate LIKE A MONSTER. There wasn't a snack food safe from me this week. So when I got on the scale today, I had gained 2.8 pounds. Shocked? No not at all. But it was what I needed to see. I made dinner today before work instead of going to McDonalds or Wendys. I made a cucumber sauce for my pita. My husband is no longer on board, but you know what, if he wants to go to McDonalds all the time. He can use his own money. I am going to watch my calories and count everything that goes back in my mouth. It's time to take control of the reins of MY life again and not let it spiral. 3 pounds gained? So what. I can overcome that obstactle and on to the next.

This last week I attended a class called Change Anything. During the class, you learn there are six influences that will hinder your ability to make changes in your life. This can also including weight loss. I feel motivated, for the most part, when it comes to weight loss and am very proud of what I have accomplished so far. That being said, I realized today just how much of an Accomplice my mother and my grandmother are. We were at Breakfast (well Dinner for most people not on a night schedule) at Texas Roadhouse today. I ordered Cheese Fries to split between me and my hubby. It's one of the bad things I do every week but I don't think of it as a bad thing either. Wll they ordered a cactus blossom, which is a whopping 1700 calories, and then kept pressuring me to have some of it. Even after I ate my cheese fries and my steak but had to put my salad to go because it was too much food. They kept telling me to take it home and take half of it. Half of a blossom is 1/2 of my meal plan for the entire day.
Then on top of all that, my mom asked me how much weight I had lost, and I said, about 23 pounds since February. My grandmother then said, "that's it?" Like I should have lost more. It was just an overall frustrating day. And they wonder why I don't want to talk to them anymore.
