Weight: 306.0

I just read that post about the future of DD - this makes me sad...

DH heard back from his job...he wasn't selected so he was broody last night. And then there was a fire at his job and they called and told him not to come in until they replace the quenching take (oil that got water in it from the firemen), he missed two nights of work. He wasn't sleeping when I thought he should, so this caused a little row, so my final thought was...I don't care if he ever sleeps again, but he better not take an attitude with me about little stuff that he feels bothers him...like his very own kids!!

I told him, when I had my one and only child 30 some years ago, I knew then that I was too selfish to have any more kids. There was a reason!! I don't like them. I don't want to worry about them and tend to them. I would often say, I didn't start liking my son until he was about 16 when he could do things and go places for himself. Now, I find myself being forced into caring for someone else's kid. The dad sleeps all the time and the mother don't care!! HELLO!!! what is wrong with this picture...I spend more time with her than either of the parents. This makes me sad, furious, frustrated all at the same time.

DH made burgers last night. They were ok. ended the night with 1582 calories.

Tomorrow is week 5 day 2, A long 8 minute run.

Maybe a parade tonight.

Tomorrow I will have a better day. Been working in the storage/supply room the last three days, should finish tomorrow morning.

Have a good night.

Progress as of today: 15.6 lbs lost so far, only 96 lbs to go!

Hi IP!

DH sounds a lil stressed and took it out on you for no reason….he just sounds stressed out due to no sleep / fire / work / no work.

This girlie will get older too. Don’t worry…you’re doing your part & that is all that matters / should matter to you. Since you obviously don’t want full custody just do your part and that should be good.

Do you ever make turkey burgers? They can be dry if you use a very lean white ground meat, but when I use even the fattier meat – they’ll be soft and taste good. If you make a dry one, very low cal, you can top it with a nice and creamy bit of avocado. I am looking to do this. I might make some nice turkey burgers tonight after I visit my grandma who is now living in a nursing home only 10 min away from me…

Great cals….

Please tell me how you’ve been doing with your running program…8 minutes is a long time, but you have been training for it! I am running around ½ mile at a time and generally walking for a lil bit each ½ that a stop and then back to running. I am probably running up to around 7-8 min at a time currently…prob not much more than that, no, not yet for me.


Donkey on 06/24/2017:
I hope you're doing better. Very astute observation about who spends the most time with the girl. It IS sad, and yet, I can see why you feel frustrated, too! It's good that you know your limits, but it seems you are being tested. (((hugs)))

I'd like to hear about the running too :-)

Keep trudging along. My entire life is running amok. This week the girl is with us the entire week. DH is still working nights so I am kinda the go to person...alarm clock, chauffer, chef - not jobs I particularly care for. I prefer to be around people who look forward to the day and seek new things to learn and do, not someone who would rather just not do anything...ever! I don't think I've ever been around someone who doesn't have a spark of creativity or an idea to do something better or different. It's just one big blah machine around my house.

I will start week 5 of the couch to 5 K. I have officially completed half of it - now I guess the hard work begins. I will see how I feel tomorrow.

No word yet on DH's job interview, he is going to call and ask tomorrow. I sure hope it's good news.

I have been eating ok, I have noticed that some sweets are starting to creep back into my menus...not a good thing for me. I will continue to work on this - hopefully this week will go by quickly.

Have a great night! iP

Good job on the couch to 5k. I'd like to do that. Hugs.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/21/2017:
wow....i cannot believe you are already halfway thru the couch to 5K awesome!

if you ever feel pain, slow down the whole training.

You should be SO PROUD of your progress!

Your life is no amuk....just this week - but not because of you!

DH was up when I got home, he went to get the girl. She asked me if I missed her...uh, I just saw you two days ago. OK so over the last few months I have spent almost $200 on new shorts and shirts for her to wear over the summer, she has yet to wear these clothes and continues to wear these butt tight shorts and I tell her to please go and change into a pair I just bought her. She says, my mom just bought these. I tell her, well you wear those when you are with your mother. I do not want to see your butt cheeks hanging out of your shorts. This is NOT ok with me. What you do at your mom's house, you do over there.

She went to change and had the audacity to tell me the new shorts were too big!! What in the HELL!! They sure fit fine, when your 2$$ wanted me to buy them. She kept them on anyway. $!#%##^%^^ And then when i wash clothes I see all these clothes n the laundry that I know she didn't wear, come to find out she is bring her dirty clothes that she wants washed to my house so I can do them. Again...##!#@#%^^&&*. I ask why are you doing this? She says because her mom takes forever tow ash clothes. I hate my life!

DH cooked burgers on the grill, they were for lack of better words...nasty! I don't know what was wrong with them, the meat was way to wet and I don't think he cooked them all the way through, I think my burger was grey! Anyway, I ended the night with 1682 calories.

I want a Texas sheet cake!

B: toast, hazel nut spread, iced vanilla latte

S: banana, yogurt

L: left over 1/2 burger, cheezits, apple

D: - not sure yet - DH said to bring something home - don't have a clue what this will be.

Contemplating a leadership course at work - lots of self study - must discuss with supervisor

I did not get up to do my week 4 day 3 run. If it cools off, I may do it tonight, if not I will get up in do it in the morning. No reason why I did't. I was just comfortable and my dog was with me and I really didn't want to move.

Oh and my garage door opener needs a battery!

Have a great weekend and celebrate those FATHERS! IP

Progress as of today: 15.6 lbs lost so far, only 96 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 06/18/2017:
girl is old enough to start washing clothes...teach her how - then she can do them at her mom's....teach her the basics and explain she can wash most things together as long as they aren't new....we don't need everything turning pink bc of a new shirt!

anyways, teach her the basics of separating the wash quick and let her start to wash her clothes....help her the first few times. this is good for her.

i started doing my clothes in high school - but she can start now?

innerpeace on 06/20/2017:
I showed her last year, but she conveniently forgets. Haven't you heard that saying...A child who wants to learn will - a child who doesn't won't - no matter how many times they are shown or taught....or something to that affect.

She is a strange one...she doesn't want to get hot or sweat. She throws a fit if taken out of her comfort zone.

She is in camp this week and always says she hates the kids and don't want to have nothing to do with them. So this morning when I drop her off, one of the younger ones runs up to her and hugs her.

She says things, but then turns around and does what she just said she didn't want to do. She lets her long wet hair lay on her shirt - ergo the shirt gets wet and then she says. I'm cold with this wet shirt on! Well apparently you really don't care or you would try to dry your wet hair. This isn't just once in awhile - it is every morning she takes a shower before camp!

This behavior grates on my very last nerve. But alas, I will show her again, how to use the washing machine to get her shirts washed for camp and her wet bathing suit so it won't mildew. I will do this again...not because I enjoy it, but because I don't want to do it myself.

And tonight I have a dentist appointment to get my cavity filled. She would rather sit in the waiting room and wait, instead of sit home and relax and watch tv. This..this is bizzaar to me. And the more I think about it...I am going to upset her and make her stay home. Yay me!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/20/2017:
she's sorta young...you may have to stand around with her...for a few times of this laundry business. my mom had me doing it (sorta late i guess - in high school)...seems she's still just a little kid still far away from being self sufficient...she's going into 8th?

also...if the things get on your nerves...maybe help her see that she is complaining? or that you might even have to show her how to wear her hair up in a towel or even how to halfway dry it????? she probably actually needs you to show her what to do!? not sure....i think it's funny about the same complaint and problem everyday - but it can be fixed if you have some solutions for her...

maybe show her everyday can be easier if she finds solutions to the things that are annoying her! LOL....maybe easier said than done? i don't know....after reading your comments i'm trying to find solutions to your anoyances too lol....really though, i am trying to provide some kinda logical advice to the best of my single lady abilities!

i am glad she doesn't hate everyone :) at camp! the young ones prob do love her :)

you gotta help her with both drying the hair...with towel and perhaps lightly with blow dryer for 5 min also...

i didn't know how to do my hair well until high school - my mom never helped me! and then when i did it, i didn't apply any heat protection and fried it by the time i graduated...also, it would have been nice to learn how to wear it curly..would have saved me time...now my hair is in a short pixie.

you gotta help her with her hair teach her how to do this....when you have the time...

i think if i remember a photo - she has the really thick hair....i bet it soaks her shirt indeed!

why make her stay home?

this girl loves you i gotta tell you....she's still learning and doesn't always see the logic...still thinking like a kid...

but she obviously loves your company and parenting! :) xoxoxoxoxo

maybe she wants to talk to you - which is why she wants to go with you.

Got home and DH grilled chicken. I love this, however, I don't love the fact that he never cooks sides. I through some green beans a pot to heat up and put together a pasta dish. It was pretty good. Ended the day with 1461 calories.

The YA came over and picked up DH's truck to use to help his girl friend's mother move. Yeah, whatever! I gave him a Yeti cup to wrap for DH on father's day. He better bring that cup back LOL!

Got DH off to work and got to bed about 10:45. DH texted me at 5:00 to see if I was up. Uh, no...today is not a run day. Well it usually is, but I didn't run on Tuesday, I ran on Wednesday so tomorrow is the run day. Just when I feel like it.

My dog doesn't sleep with me anymore, this makes me sad. Since DH has been working nights.

Sunday will be the start of my own personal hell...the summer weeks with the girl begin. I'm not sure I'm emotionally ready for this.

B: toast, hazel nut spread, iced vanilla latte

S: banana

L: chicken breast, crackers, apple

S: balanced breaks

D:: DH said something about hamburgers, don't know for sure.

Have a great night! IP

yes those veggie sides are what fill you up to complete your meal. that's how i do it and then i usually enjoy ending my meals with carbs. today was 1/2 a bagel and then i splurged on a Fiber 1 Choc Chip cookie for dessert...quite a bit of carbs but still in some kinda proportion / portion control!

Veggies i eat after taking at least a few bites of protein to start the meal...they really help me fill up my stomach. for some reason, i enjoy ending meals with carbs.

I do not run every day...right now it's 2x per week - i'd prefer to get up to 3....but that is not my plan for the summer, thankfully! Summer i'm sticking with 2x per week runs...i may change my mind for August only...but definitely sticking to the 2x per week plan for the months of June and July.

Your meals sound EXCELLENT.....breakfast is tasty wow.

lunch is healthy...but you do not like veg anymore...they do require prep and i do admit to buying them very often prepped....i can't keep up with the amount of veggies I like to consume.

hamburgers = yum = especially a veg casserole of some sort filled with the hamburger meat!

So the new refrigerator was delivered.

DH woke up when the eye glasses placed called and told him his glasses were ready, and then he goes and gets the girl and then was at home to get the refrigerator. All of this was done before I get home. When I get home DH takes the girl to the dentist...two cavities!! And then the chicken wasn't thawed so he stopped at McDonald's on the way home. Not my favorite.

Then the YA comes over and he is upset because him and his mother are getting into it. He says that the mother even told him to get out of his sister's life. What on earth is wrong with this woman? I have never known someone to drive people away from each other the way she does. I thought mother's wanted their children to get along and be happy, apparently not this woman! Anyway, he gets so upset he can't sleep. Hoping he finds comfort soon.

Also praying my DH gets the job he interviewed for, they are supposed to make a decision today or tomorrow. Really would like for him to be back on day shift.

Was up at 4:50 and went on my Week 4 Day 2 c25K run/walk. It was humid and sticky and not my best day, but I finished and feel good about it.

B: toast with hazel nut spread, iced vanilla latte

L: roast beef sandiwich, cheezits, apple

S: balanced breaks

D: quarter pounder, frenchfries

S: ding dong

ended the day with 1918 calories - no thanks to McDonalds!!

DH went to bed, the girl's mother picked her up at 8:20 and the the YA left about 9:00. I watched baseball!

B: toast, hazel nut spread, iced vanilla latte

S: banana

L: 1/2 peanut butter sandwich, cheezits, apple

S: balanced breaks

D: something with chicken!

 

Have a great night!

yeah, you have such a great affect with the girl / on the girl that she was trying to jog even without you - that's a credit and that shows how great you are as a role model!!!!!! be darn proud IP, you always impress me!

So keep up the great work, McD's is not an everyday occurance...sometimes a treat goes a long way :)

keep up the great work, train with her...she'll be fine. just make sure not to overdo!

The girl did try to do first day of c25k, however, DH said she started out sprinting, which she shouldn't have done and then couldn't finish. Maybe I will help her, I don't know. I'm sick of her playing both sides of the fence. It really makes me sick and I doubt i will ever believe anything she ever tells me.I get aggravated that DH would rather go pick up the girl than sleep. Seriously! I guess I'll just let him run hisself in the ground just so he can go pick up his precious brat...and then fall asleep while I'm sitting there with her! How fair is that?

I have good days and bad days, good months and bad months when it comes to his kids. They are irritating and manipulative and sometimes i  would prefer not to even be around them. And then I find myself comparing them to my kid and I just don't get it! We have two interns here in the office and god forbid they have to submit a piece of paperwork twice...or their mentor is saying poor kids, woe are they, they had to fill out the same form twice and they are so great they shouldn't be put through this torture. I'm like seriously shaking my head an wondering when I was put on the entitled, can't do anything for myself, planet!

I stayed up and watched the Cavs lose and was unable to get up to go for the walk/run this morning. Hopefully I can get up tomorrow and get it done.

Last night DH made a roast in the crock pot, it was pretty good. Ended the night with 1646 calories.

Not sure what's for dinner tonight, but the new refrigerator is supposed to be delivered and the girl has a dental appointment ! I know her gums are red and inflamed I doubt she brushes at her mom's house and I just know she probably isn't told to do it, because I mean she's 12 and has to be told to do EVERYTHING....EVERYTHING, like use toilet paper, go blow your nose, flush the toilet and oh...brush your teeth! She has came so far as to decide when she wants to take a shower though, so there's that!

Anyway, still venting from the weekend! I can only pray for things to get better! Have a great night! IP

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/13/2017:
If she can’t finish the jog, let her walk. There’s no need to give up. The girl needs you to help instruct / motivate her because it’s NOT easy to get into running especially if you are a little bit heavier (talking about the girl) because it’s extra weight you have to run around with making it harder. She’s probably having a bit of a struggle obviously with her running….yes, you have to help her. Explain to her that when she’s running and feels like she needs to stop, to stop but walk….not stop fully. this is how I do it…and then go back to running after she gets her breath back. She’ll be able to run longer and longer as she practices.

This is why kids need adults…

Now keep up the GREAT work IP…and your cals look quite GREAT. Stay strong & carry on!

innerpeace on 06/14/2017:
I didn't go. I was at home mowing and DH and the girl went. He was walking the dog and she wanted to do it by herself.

I will go with her next time and help her.


happy-1 on 06/14/2017:
Just chiming in.. the most embarrassing thing when I run is all my belly fat moving around like Jello in front of me... Baywatch boob bounce... but in the wrong spot. Horrifying. Old Navy compression tights in a tall size and a Spanx tank top really help keep that which should not bounce up and down when I run from flying about.

Saturday I started out in a good mood...but dealing with an insulant tween kinda pissed me off. So DH is due home around 9:00 so I start cooking breakfast about 8:30 - sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes...and I put it on the table. Right before everything is finished I'm telling the girl to get up. When she gets up, she brings down a blanket and lays on the couch. Seriously??? So I asked her if she was going to eat? Her reply. I'll eat when we get home. Right....so she has this TWEEN plan that once we get out and about she will get something from McDonalds. I tell her, I'm not gonna cook when we get home. I sit down and eat because I'm pissy and DH shold have been home by now because it only takes 20 minutes for a normal driver to get home. I think DH finally pulls in about 9:15....really it takes him 45 minutes to drive 20...I take the back roads just in case...Yeah OK whatever, I know he has driving isuse. Finally the girl comes and eats, but I'm still kind of PO'd. We go to a community wide garage sale. It was hot and uncomfortable and I was happy to get back to the AC.

I made spaghetti for dinner, which was only just OK, not sure it was what I wanted, but it was quick and easy.

DH makes comment about my c25K and then the girl hears and says I want to go....Uh, I'm thrilled she wants to do it, BUT I don't want to do it with her! I was doing this for ME, its my alone time. Seriously I can't even go to the bathroom upstairs without her following me. I close the bedroom door to get dressed. She knocks. Flattered, but NO! And to top it off this girl cannot stand to be dirty, so how on earth is she going to be hot and sweaty? HOpefully we can find a solution, but until then. I was up at 6:00 am and did week 4 Day 1 of the program, and I'm telling you I never knew 4 minutes lasted so long! I am just glad it is finished for the day.

TO DO LIST: 

laundry, mowing

And this weekend's conversation - Bruno Mars hoodie/tshirt, apparently her mother is moving and her new bedroom is a hobbit hole - (small in size) I have heard about both ad nausem!  And it is stil early on Sunday so I can guess what today will bring! I told DH today, she will wake up on her own, because I DO NOT want to subject myself to this attitudy person.

Justing venting!

Have a great Sunday!

awww....sorry girl is impinging on your alone time as i know how it good it feels to be alone (i do it like my whole life duh!)....

it is very good for her to get into regular exercise though. i like that she wants to be with you....i like that she wants to jog. it can change her life, she can be fit.

there was a whole show on Bruno Mars my mom told me about it on tv last night which is cool as she told me bc she knew i went to see his concert a few summers back!

lol....sounds like a lot of extra words coming your way from those youngins with attitudes !

Wednesday I pick up the girl, it was her last day of school. She made honor roll. So pleased and hope this willingness to learn stays with her until after college. We went out to celebrate. HOP hopefully you can see my color and I got about 2 inches cut off. I had to get the grey covered  up.

 

DH had another interview yesterday, I sure hope he gets this job. I hate, hate him working nights. And another thing I hate is just when I am trying to get ahead in life, something else comes along and says...oh no, not today my friend. The refrigerator is going our again. This will be the third time, so instead of having someone come out and look at it, DH and I decided to just go and buy another one. Not really what I had planned for Thursday night but it is done. The new refrigerator should be delivered on Tuesday. After buying the thing we then go to eat at Applebee's...again not planned but...conveinient.

This morning I was up and finished Week 3 Day 3 of the C25K. I felt so good this morning, that I was actually do it...my legs are a bit sore this morning and back is tender, but this will go away in a few days...as has been the norm since the start of this program. Not eating the best though...last night that ice cream that was in the basement made its way up into the freezer. (the freezer is still working find, however, the top refrigerator is not cooling for anything!!

Hi IP! Yes – I love your new color! That is so great girlie did well in her classes! Way to go! I really do LOVE your blonde color. It’s a hot color right now right!?

That’s very inconvenient indeed with the fridge, sorry! That is money….inconveniently spent but you have to nonetheless so sorry! I hope this new fridge lasts a long, long time! I hope at least you got some deal on it!?

Hey…it’s ok to not always eat great but try not to get into cycles of continuously doing this as part as your routine. I’m also requiring some work in this dept again. I am eating much more…and need to reign it back in a little bit. But weirdly, I am not gaining weight says the scale!? But I feel like I have. Weird feeling lately.

overall, your cals are GREAT! Hope your team wins!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/09/2017:

I hope that one of these interviews comes through for your husband. My husband worked nights for 5 years. Very difficult on our family and married life.

I hear you about life not letting you get ahead. Shall I tell you about the year that I got a new garage door for Christmas? And the year after that, I had to get a new oven door for Christmas?

After work I did go and get my hair colored and cut a little. DH was up when I got home - he should have cooked - but didn/t I don't know why? (I guess I'm just used to him doing this)

He put out cubed steak to thaw. I made chicken fried steak, small miniture potatoes and green beans. After dinner he tries to go and get a few more hours of sleep. I eat some strawberries, blueberries and a few walnuts.  The whole time I hear the ice creem down stairs in the freezer calling out my name - but this night...THIS NIGHT I successfully ignored it!.

DH left about 10:45 and I sat up until about 11:30 - I couldn't get to sleep. I did get up about 5:10 and did the Week3 day 2 this morning and felt pretty good about it.

DH has another interview today...very excited for him.

I have to get the girl today - not excited for me!

DH didn't take anything out for dinner! Will have to pick something up!

Let's see an update of the cut & color!!!!!! Love when people make changes! it's good for us to not stay in a habit and sometimes change is good for the mind and body is my belief!

lol to your chicken fried steak again! now i've heard you use that expression before!!

your potatoes and string beans sound delicious with it...i roasted some cabbage last night myself to eat with my lunch (now i do roast at home - like i always wanted to - i've learned and do well with it now!)... and your snack of berries / nuts is a GOOD IDEA - never thought of it actually....filling fibrous strawberries low cal mixed with nuts is such a GOOD IDEA...i may have to do this myself!!!!!! excellent idea!

you can always do ice cream with berries too....if you feel the need to indulge in some ice cream.

InnerPeace - Tuesday Jun 06, 2017

Weight: 306.0

My whole world has changed and I cannot get back on a schedule I can handle. DH went back to work last night and i was alone and heard every creak and pop in the house, the dog woke me up barking and then i couldn't back to sleep. I lived alone for 15 years and I never knew how much better I slept when someone was beside me.

Anyway, since DH is on thrid shift I am cooking and making my lunch now - again - things I used to do - but now don't - makes it very hard to get back into the groove of things.

Saturday went with DH to get eyeglasses and we ate out of Arby's.

Sunday did the week 3 day 1 of the c25K was ok, it was a little humid. Went to Sandusky to shop and would up at Sonic. I ate a chili dog!

Monday - I had a dentist appointment and for the first time in I don't know how long - I have a freaking cavity! Really? No my tooth doesn't hurt and NO it's not sentifive - No it's not giving me any problems!! It won't do or be all that until you FIX it! I detest the dentist!

Tuesday I am thinking of getting the gray colored out of my hair - it sure has exploded throughout!. I used the excuse that I was too tired to get up and do Day 2 of week three, if I don't do it tonight, I will do it tomorrow!

Calories:

FRI - 1303

SAT - 1466

SUN - 1631

MON - 1435

DH has an interview with a different company, they only work five days a week - no more Saturdays. This would be ideal...I hope he has a good interview.

Have a great night! IP

Hi IP! Thank gosh you wrote an entry bc nobody besides myself has written since the 3rd!!!! JK – but happy to have some good reading material for my afternoon here at work…so let me get to reading your entry!.... I am sorry you are busing DH so much! But you will get used to it I know! Have some faith in the process and the changes and you will get used to this over a few weeks. You know that all the changes take time to get used to. I know you will be alright. Sorry about DH back at work – but this is a necessary thing! With the food making, maybe do it all on Sunday or most on Sunday or half the week on Sunday so that you don’t have to do it all the time. I admit I do most of my prep on weekend and then again in the middle of the week, but I pack the stuff in the AM….works for me but I have no girl or anyone else to manage….You may do better even packing it all at once on the weekend? just a suggestion, not sure if it’ll work for you individually… Who got glasses, both of you? You remind me to get some now…actually, I’ll wait on purpose until December right before the NYPD academy since I need them for seeing things like the board / smartboard. They don’t really sell any chilli dogs in this neck of the woods…NY State haha…

Yeah, agreed, dentists know how to lie and manipulate and do work that’s not even needed. At least it’s usually not out of our pockets but rather insurance more or less….usually.

Great cals and keep on with your fantastic exercise! Good planning for it!
