finally someone says i look good and not sick.

Saturday, July 06, 2013

ive been doing pretty darn good, if i do say so myself.
and i do!

this week i weighed in at 138....8? im not sure. i think .8
it was an off week, however, so i will take that loss!

bird left monday. monday i got in a 2 hour workout, short abs/arms/legs strength training and the rest of the day i slept.
tuesday was much the same but only cardio.
same wednesday but short cardio.

wednesday we went to our local city for dinner and fireworks.
i fretted the whole day about what to get.
i dont normally do this.

having lost these past ten pounds, say, i cannot eat as much.
i finally feel like i have an off button.
i finally feel like ...normalish.
i dont feel like i can just eat and eat and eat--i feel ...bad if i eat too much.

anyways, so, we went to a british pub and boom. my dilemma over dinner was solved.
i had a portabella mushroom hummus wrap.
what did this solve?
the fry dilemma.
i wanted fries--obviously--but i dont think i could have gotten the words "vegetables instead of fries, please..." out..
the hummus wrap came with no fries.

thursday and friday, the husband was off and we had a cookout with friends. i did fine... i did have a sliver--and i mean that literally, it was tiny--of cake.

friday i went shopping and wanted badly a donut. i went to go get one and turned around. immediately after, i actually felt the craving go away and i was like, wow, really? you almost made yourself feel bad physically for that?!
then i was going to get a skinny cow candy bar but i couldnt find one.
so i came home and had my lunch.

last nite we went to the alamo theater at 10pm to see man of steel.
i again tried to order wisely and i did.
i dont like pretzels much so i ordered a pretzel. turns out it was amazing.
but i still ate less than half of it and gave the rest to the husband.

we "shared" a milkshake but i only took six spoonfuls. i counted.
i came home feeling pretty darn good.

today i did quite a bit, though i feel porkerish.
did a short strength training workout--10 exercises with 25lb kettlebell for 10 reps, 100 crunches and walked for an hour.
also sprayed poison throughout the yard with the backpack sprayer in 90 degree heat for an hour and a half with roughly 20lbs of water/poison in the backpack plus the weight of the pack itself.

ive got 1300-something known calories and 4 cookies. [company and the cookies were specially for me so i couldnt say no...]

so, our neighbor invited us over for the 4th of july and we went..
when he saw me, he said: wow! you've lost weight young lady!
and his wife said, wow! i guess you have!
they both said i look great.

which, two things.
one: it is nice to know that i look good after the whole thing of my family seeing me and saying i dont look good and blah blah blah.
and, i was thinking that i hadnt lost that much weight since we moved in but after looking at it, yeah, ive lost almost 50lbs since last year.
last july 4th, i was 180.

yay me!

the one with my ma was last year around this time.
the one of me alone was a month or so ago. maybe longer. 142.

    On the Off-button: I'm glad yours is working again. Most days mine does, but there are some foods that the Off-button doesn't work. And I call mine the Food Light Switch, and mine only breaks sometimes now.

    On the hummus wrap: Holy frickin' YAY!!!

    On lookin' good: Feels good to hear it, doesn't it? :-D Family may be your worst critic, just remember that they're not the only people you know in this world.

    And I'm still jealous for you hitting the 130's. :-P

    I think you look fantastic and have worked hard to achieve this.
    Think of the struggle and setbacks you endured to achieve this. You are looking good and you should be proud and not care what other think. emoticon
