A Stone Before Yule/Christmas


Thursday, September 24, 2009

I joined a new team called No Topic Off Limits. Well a few days after joining I get the post saying "A Stone Before Christmas" with the following message.

""Well Christmas is coming !!

As most of my Sparky friends will be celebrating in the USA, here is a link/paste, to a nice page that will explain what most of the USA gets up to over Christmas, you call it Thanksgiving dont you?

And the other point is there are 94 days to go.............which is 13 and a bit weeks, now I dont know about you, but I always get clothes that are too small for me !! always.

So it got me thinking.........why not go for an all out push to shift 14 lb, a stone as I will call it in Wales.

That is just over a pound a week, and what would a stone do for your looks and self esteem ?

Well that is MY plan, if you fancy it just post that "YOUR IN !!!", and then there will be no going back !!

So, shed a stone for Christmas is now in opereation, lets get it on..........

I AM IN !!!!"

This sounds like a very doable thing. And I like that each person can have their own plan. So I decided what the hell. This isn't a challenge. He's calling it a Mission. I like that much better. When I attempt a "challenge" and don't make it I feel like such an utter failure! I don't know why I'm more comfortable with the word Mission, but I am. So my plan is that I'm going to cook just SP recipes for dinners and try to make sure there is enough for leftovers for lunch the next day. I will do my best to eat breakfast in the mornings. I will cut down on my mindless munching (I hate that! I really have to get a handle on it). And I talked to Crystal last night about joining a gym. I figure I can drop Jordon off in the mornings at school and hit the treadmill at the gym on my way home. She said I could so I'm getting the information on that today. Hopefully I can start that part soon.

Here's a funny story that goes with this though. I woke up yesterday morning completely pumped and gung ho to get this started right? So I figure a current weight in would be a good place to start. I step on the scale and it blinked and quit! LOL The battery died! I almost let it kick my butt but didn't!! In the past I would have given up right there! (Sad huh?) But nope. No more of that namby pamby crap for me! I'm going to go get a battery this afternoon and weigh in the morning.

Night before last I made Ranch Cheddar Turkey Burger with oven fries. OMG they were so friggin good! Jordon even ate 2 of them!!! I was impressed! A definite keeper recipe! I had one and then had another for lunch yesterday. I made Keema for dinner last night. Jordon said it was missing something so I went searching recipes and discovered the missing spices! Yeah! It was only spices missing and not something that will add a ton of calories! It was good the way it was but it did need a little something. There is a ton left over so I'm having that for dinner again tonight! Jordon's going to a concert so I don't have to cook anything new!

I am trying hard to make better decisions on what goes into my body. I have come to accept myself to a point. I no longer feel like the most disgusting creature on the planet. But still... I would like to feel better. So I am going to do this mission. And if I succeed then great! I will keep going with it. If I don't, I will not beat myself up for it. I'll just keep trying!
