Hi-Dee Ho, Neighbors!

Thursday, July 12, 2012


Yes, I just had a "Home Improvement" flashback. Did they ever show Wilson's face on that show?

I digress...

I finally made it to ONEderland!

Yay, Me!!

I've actually been about 3 weeks in ONEderland...and it's great! I have summer clothes from last year that I have to give away because they're too big on me... emoticon...*giggle, giggle*

Yeah...I was almost indecently exposed twice last week at work! emoticon Guess that means I have to go shopping... emoticon

Just when I get to a really good point in my weight loss journey, and all is going well....I get sick.


Not "seriously" ill...but I've had a few bouts with stomach trouble...mainly acid reflux. The scenario about 2 weeks ago went something like this:

Me: I think I'll have the spicy chicken bites.
Son: know you can't eat that makes you sick.
Me: Come on. I haven't gotten sick eating spicy stuff in over a year.
Son: Ma...DON'T DO IT!
Me: Butt out, whippesnapper!

...A few hours later...

Me: (moan) I don't feel so well.
Son: Didn't I TELL you not to eat that?!
Me: Don't yell at me...I'm sick...(insert additional whining here)

So I've been back & forth with stomach issues & migraines for about two weeks...and when I don't feel well, I eat junk.

I don't really understand that about me. I mean, common sense would seem to steer me away from things that would make me feel worse...but common sense isn't all too common...especially when I don't feel well. Come on...what sense does it make to buy a ginger ale for an upset stomach and buy a bag of potato chips to go with it?!

In spite of my bad eating habits over the past 3 weeks...and they have been HORRIBLE, y'all...and the fact that I seriously slacked in my exercising...I've managed to remain in ONEderland.

I am kinda psyched about my progress and I'm determined to get back on track ASAP! I have even talked myself into going to the gym this afternoon.

Just 1 1/2 hours until I'm outta here! I suppose I could pretend to be work for that long...

    We've been on vacation, and I ate horribly, resulting in my old heartburn nemesis. Makes it easier for me to go back to better choices. Hope you're feeling better by now, I'm a little late to the party.
