crappy day

all and all today was just an epic FAIL.  I love finding out who is true and who is full of crap but the only thing I can say is through it all you know who your friends are.  I am just hating at the moment that almost all of mine are so far away (even one near by is away on vacation) 

I am really starting to wonder, shouldn't the military provide separation/grief counseling for the friends left behind when the military family is sent to a new base.  I have never had this much trouble adjusting to a friend moving but for some reason it keeps hitting me.  Maybe it is because little Waffle keeps talking about her BFF, I don't know but my buddy was one who could always make me feel better and I don't have her around anymore either so it all sucks. 

The only thing I have to say is depressed or not I haven't resorted to pushing my feelings away under two tons of food.  Maybe that is actually why I am feeling bad, i am allowing myself to feel instead of eating?  I don't know but I am rambling so I will call it a night before Baby Waffle wakes up yet again!

off the wagon... again... sort of and about a contest!

So yes I haven't been posting my food, I have however been watching what I eat.  I find it so hard to have time to post every day because baby Waffle is is getting two molars and is having a lot of issues with sleep.  Poor guy, he has four teeth up top plus the two molars coming in but only TWO teeth on bottom.  Gotta get a picture of his smile ;) 

Soo anyway, I know I wasn't going to weigh but I have because my shorts were getting a little loose, I am down three pounds, not much but hey it has only been what a week.  I will take that. So I am going to try again to get the every day posting in.... fingers crossed.

Now for the contest.  I stumbled upon a new cloth diaper cover that I adore and we planning on upping my stock in the next week or so with this new covers from www.booroi.com.  In the meantime, www.momsmilkboutique.com has announced a give away of this very diaper.  I am SO excited (I am even posting about this in hopes of an extra entry) The contests ends tonight so fingers crossed.... I hope I win some! 

OH I just realized something, I am down three pounds BUT I also got a visit from that worst of all friends today so I am probably totally bloated!  Whoo hoo.

Ok so TTFN!!!!

End of day one

Well I pretty much survived day one.  I went for a wog (walk/jog) this morning and went about 2 miles but couldn't find the path marker so I am not certain about distance.  I definitely was hot and sweated up a storm. 

I already listed breakfast.  Lunch was pretty good, had a salad of mixed greens with grilled chicken, bacon and feta cheese along with organic balsamic and olive oil dressing.  I did take a few bites of the kids mac and cheese though but hey Rome wasn't built in a day, right?

Around 3/3:30 I snacked on some almond slices but if I understand right, those are ok actually pretty good to snack on

Things got a bit worse with dinner, well actually after dinner:  dinner was chicken baked with the same dressing as the salad at lunch also topped with Parmesan cheese and crushed almond slivers. We had brown rice and fresh peaches along with the chicken.  Yes I know, no veggies.  I didn't realize we were totally out of veggies so need to take care of that and stock up tomorrow!   

I had the fresh peach for dessert, I sliced it and put a little butter and brown sugar on it and put it in the microwave and the covered with more of the almonds slices.  I guess that wouldn't be so bad but after I finished the peach I went back and melted more butter and brown sugar and mixed some more almonds in.  I am fully aware that I did this because I got mad at my husband though.  Doesn't change that I did it but it does help me maybe resist the urge NEXT time hopefully. 

Well, off to brush my teeth and hit the sack before I go try to snack some more! 

So in review, exercise check, food for today I will say check however not eating after 7 FAIL. it wasn't much after 7 so not bad for the first day!  20 days to go, I think I will try to resist the scale until the 21st day and see what happens.  Shouldn't be too hard, I weigh on my Wii and there is something crazy going on with my system..... guess I have 20 days to fix it!  Night all....


I am hijacking my own blog....

So once again it has been awhile since my last post.  Not much has gone on but we have just been busy with summer in general!  So until things pick up and since I need to make myself accountable I am hijacking this general blog to make it a weight loss blog!

I have been told it takes 21 days to make a change into a habit so for the next 21 days I am going to post my weight loss journey.  It will make me accountable for the weight loss as well as get my blog up and running again!

long term goal is to be somewhere around 175 short term get to 220
So Day 1: weight 239
                 breakfast: 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites scrambled with 2 slices of ham and a handful of feta
                                  cheese and 1/2 banana 1 1/2 glasses of orange juice.

I am heading out now to walk with some friends and will fill in the rest of my day tonight.  Fingers crossed I will stick to it this time.  I can't stand being this way any more!!!!
