Eat, Eat, Eat

Could somebody please tell me what the hell is going on!? With the restriction I normally have I cannot eat bread or pizza… I can almost count crackers out unless it’s just a few nibbles.

Yesterday it was like my band was wide open. I shoved in bread, a cheese stick and Jalapeno poppers.

No I didn’t do it all in 1 sitting but it’s a lot more food than I could ever eat before. I was worried then this morning I woke up and couldn’t eat more than 1 slice of cheese with some turkey breast… This is so confusing. I guess I should just view yesterday as a bonus and now I have to work that much harder to get all that crap out of my system 

I did take the dogs out and throw the ball and such to burn off some of it… Maybe 50 calories lol.

Air Supply

I had alot of fun this weekend! We went to Lincoln City and stayed in the hotel there at the Casino and saw Air Supply! ya, I am stuck in the 80's.. what's wrong with that?

We were totally suprised that he could still belt out a tune like that ... Very good show.

The hotel was pretty run down though. They had just installed new windows but yet they were dripping water inside the window constantly while we were there.. I don't think the installers did a great job.

My Dog looks like how I feel

My dog looks just like how I feel after this REALLY LONG week... 1 hour till I am off work!

Carrots for breakfast... No no

Normally for breakfast I have something like Greek Yogurt, soup, cheese, milk, cottage cheese etc.. This morning I opened the fridge and julliene sliced carrots jumped out as me. I love carrots! So I pack about 20 small slices of those and a cheese stick. I sit down to eat at my desk and after the second carrot slice I could tell it was going to take a long time to go down.. it's not painful and it's going to come back up.... I can get sips of water through so it should be going down soon :( I wont be eating that cheesestick for a few hours now though!

TGIF! I leave for the casino tomorrow with my inlaws to stay the weekend there and see Air Supply... I know I am stuck in the 80's. It's fun though.

Feeling good!

Ok so the last few days I have been getting my water in I think.. I feel like I am going to float away! I have purchased a larger water bottle for my desk 34 oz and have been making sure that I have 1 before lunch and 1 after lunch but before I leave work... that should keep me from dropping below my required water amount.

I also went to bed last night at 815! That was awesome and I slept sooooooo Good!

Btw I am in love with the Smokehouse almonds... The Jalapeno ones are super good too. I gotta watch the grazing with them.

Need more sleep

According to studies the body needs adequate amounts of sleep to function properly.. That includes to be able to efficiently burn fat. That's just another excuse I can use to sleep more :D

I have been going to bed around 9 and getting up between 445 and 5am... I am tired. I don't realize when I say I am going to bed at 9 that I am asleep that minute. I brush my teeth and get ready for bed... By the time I was laying down to close my eyes last night it was 927 :(

Tonight I am going to try and catch up on some sleep and go to bed around 8-830 :)

Blah blah blah!! I stopped losing!

I am just here to whine and bitch today I think. So I haven't lost anything in almost 2 weeks so I am getting grouchy. I don't 'diet' so I guess I can't expect to have a constant loss and I am sure it has to do with the liquid calories that I have had recently.. Those 2 apple martinis and 2 bloody marys Friday probably didn't help.

Well back on track now.. I hope! I stockpiled a bunch of greek yogurt to help me get back in the swing of things.

Sashimi AHI!

So well umm ya... SUPER GOOD! Like I knew it would be. I went to a fish house last night. I had the Sashimi Ahi it was very very good. I mean why the hell would anyone ever wanna good a fish? I dunno... Oh wait maybe because of the deadly parasites that they might possibly contain! Man I have those DUH should've had a V8 moments once in a while.

But no seriously... if I didn't have to and wanted to risk dying everytime I ate fish I would eat it raw.

So my dinner came with Rice, coleslaw, bread and cottage cheese.

I was only able to eat 1 slice of the sashimi and a few bites of coleslaw and cottage cheese.

I brought a slice of sashimi and cottage cheese in for breakfast. I can tell I am gonna get my moneys worth from this meal and then some.

Fish house

Well my mom is coming to see me for a couple hours today... We don't spend alot of time together. It's because of her loser husband who I umm hate. I don't need to say more.

Were gonna take her out to a fish house here in town. She is from the south so she loves anything that lived in the sea that you fry! So fish and chips it is. Luckily they are an upper scale fish house and not a skippers... so I am dying to try their sashimi :D

Crappy, Crabby, Cruddy!

I am super dooper crabby the last 2 days... Lots of stress, a new job, lots of learning, having an overly dramatic teenager (girl) , and my son going on his first date.

Jesus I need a break from reality! Well not really.. I just need a bit o time to relax.

I have an overnight trip planned with no kids in about 10 days so that will give me a bit of a rest... Plus a chance to go gamble at the casino :D

Oh the weather outside is frightful :(

Well somehow mother nature has managed to find a way to go from 40's and sunny to snow... Rain back to sun. How could this happen all in 5 minutes? It's been like that for 3 days....... SOMEONE make it clear up I am going insane. I have never seen it snow in Oregon in March.. Atleast where I live.

Catching up!

Alright.... so I am here to do a catch up post.

I did start my job about a week ago so 1 week under my belt... YAY me. I like the job it's not that bad. Alot of learning when it comes to new software but I am sure I can catch on fairly quickly... take notes, take notes, take notes.... I do alot of that. It's already saved my ass a time or 2.

So I got back from 2 vacations back to back and I managed to lose 7 pounds between going to Kauai and going to California. I am at 182 right now. Thats about 22 pounds from my initial goal. 160 is where I originally wanted to be and thats what I told the surgeon.... that's still overweight by about 10 pounds. The surgeon being skeptical and thinking that no one loses more than 50-60% of their excess weight thought I would be about 180.. I am about there and dont feel like I am done. I can claim success to the number he threw out there in 2 pounds but I plan to keep goin.

My new jobs pretty tempting cause they have free candy all the time in the break rooms along with free espressos and cappucino... I will be good though. I have 1 cup a coffee per day and then stick with the crystal lites and flavored waters the rest of the day.

I have some serious restriction so I don't see much changing soon. I hope that it continues to go this great!
