InnerPeace - Tuesday May 10, 2016

Weight: 311.9

Very disappointing visit with my doctor yesterday. I know...I know, but to hear others tell you what you know is sometimes degrading and humiliating. Just because I am a morbidly obese person does not make me stupid. My doctor was worried about my A1C, which was 5.9 - the prediabetic stage.

Dr: would you be interested in our Get Moving program, kinda like weight watchers, it meets every Monday at 11:00.

Me: I would be, I work everyday though and can't see me being able to miss work every Monday for two-three hours. (this clinic is 45 minutes away from where I work)

Dr. Do you want to see a nutritianalist?

Me. I have seen the nutritianalist before.

Dr. I'm really worried about this A1C which is centered around carbohydrates.

Me. Yes, bread, pasta, starchy vegetables like potatoes, corn and peas.

Dr. Well you know more than I thought you did.

Me: Well I like food and I am lazy. I know how to do what I need to do, but I find it hard and boring and time consuming and painful at times and something I really don't like to do. So much for being honest!

Anyway, I also have low Vitamin D levels, which she gave me a medication for, she didn't want to refill my face medicine but did and also suggest I see the dermatologist again, which I did and they tell me the same stuff and give me the same stuff. And then appointments for the pap and mammogram which was a freakin' night mare last year! Needless to say, it sucked!

I get home and prepare the pork roast for dinner.

DH gets home, but roast is not done, so it needs to cook longer and he hands me hostess cupcakes...I eat them and then get mad. Dinner was the roast pork, green beans and dressing.

We went to Wal-mart to pick up a few things and get into an argument over one-a-day vitamins.

Today is another day!

B: banana, yogurt, iced vanilla latte (366 calories)

L: one piece of 12 grain bread , roast beef lunch meat, swiss cheese, pickle. banana (431 calories)

S: Greek yogurt lemon meringue (120 calories)

D: chicken, brocolli and salad (361)

Total for the day 1,278. I am very ok with this.

I have only been drinking one diet doctor pepper a day, which is a very big cut back - usually 5 or 6.

 

Progress as of today: 9.7 lbs lost so far, only 101.9 lbs to go!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/10/2016:
don't worry girlfriend, you know what to do :) and we are here to help and support you! we are better than weight watchers any day!


puddles on 05/10/2016:
I understand how this all can be discouraging but at least it seems you have gained no new post so that is good. Always hard to balance all the days stuff with work and the food of an entire family. Things will go better.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/11/2016:
I agree with Puddy above. Don't be too angry about the dr visit, continue doing well for you and your family. Be proud of yourself.

I hope you don't become diabetic! My friend just found out he had it.

Left work on Friday and DH goes to a chinese food buffet. It is all good though, ate tons of vegetables and a few pieces of chicken. I also had some egg drop soup, I usually never eat soup, especially unless it is just freezing cold outside. I counted the calories and ended up with 1654, it is ok.

Get home and both DH and I fall asleep in the recliner, OMG we are so lazy or work drained. I wake up about 8:30 and then watch the Thunder lose, they finished about mindnight and then I go to bed. DH is up at 6:00 to go to work and I sleep in till 8l00 on Saturday. No headache! So excited about this, but still just cannot get motivated. I clean up around the house a bit, but that is all.

DH gets home and we opt not to do anything. He brough Arby's home for dinner and again we just hang out. I ended with 1792 calories. DH left to go find a nut to fit the vacuum cleaner and I watched the Kentucky Derby to see if anyone at work won...off course someone picked the Trivecta (or whatever it is they call it) WOW! just wow, I wonder how much money he would have won if he would have actually placed a bet.

Sunday morning I get up and we go oh a hike thorugh a ravine. We take Steve and we are walking along, I let him off the leash and he is doing pretty good. I see a squirrel so I hook him back up. We are almost finished and DH let him off the leash, he just flies through the woods into a herd of deer that was sleeping. All the deer jump off and scatter as my dog chases them. I thought for sure I would never find my dog, but after about ten minutes he comes back. I was paranoid and yelling at DH why he let Steve off the leash again. He said he thought he would run up to me, he didn't see the deer sleeping, I didn't either and just so glad he didn't chase them forever. I did laundry and cleaned out my car!

Called my mom and talked to her, I miss her everyday. I finally got a text from my son around 9:30 - better late than never, but at least he remembered. Bittersweet day.

DH cooked a deliscous dinner wth zuccini, squash and ground turkey bake.

I have my doctor's appointment this afternoon will see how that goes. I know I did not make my goal of being under 300 but will se ehow close when I get weighed today!

B: toast, iced vanilla latte

S: yogurt protein bar

L: left over turkey, squash, zuccini bake

Yes, of the Chinese Buffets near me, I am NEVER disappointed. There’s some really great ones by me with TONS of vegetable dishes to choose from. And even if not a TON of veggie dishes, there’s enough to keep going for more and combine the vegetables with a bit of the other dishes to make for a REALLY filling meal!

I’d love to go MORE often to a chinese buffet actually…and you know what, I’m going to look one up for around my apt so that I can invite my friends who’ve been saying that they’d like to go for Chinese by me! (Actually where I live is surrounded by TONS of Chinese / Asian neighborhoods and restaurants!).

Nah, I think most people are get tired and work drained just like you. Once again, I was writing this to Donkey – don’t feel you are alone. A lot of your battles are ones that many of us can relate to. Especially in terms of feeling physically / emotionally drained. Don’t feel you are alone. Know that you have the power to take control over your life / health / wants & needs.

I also called my mom on Mother’s Day sorta late in the day around 7:30pm. So late because I was feeling quite drained all day too. But, I had just seen her the day before lol. We celebrated a day early.

Zucchini bake sounds aewsome...as does the turkey and squash!

Good luck at the dr.

Work was crap today, I hate when I have nothing to do, time crawls by! Picked up DH and the little gril and went to Ruby Tuesday. Had a nice big salad, broccoli, mashed potatoes and 1/2 of the porkchop. Total calories for the day 1582. I'm ok with this.

Little girl said she needed to take a shower so we headed back home and do homework then she gets a shower, not really sure why she can't take a shower at her mom's? DH took her home and then I started working on the cupcake icing.

First melt the butter and powered sugar together (do not boil) and then let stand for 2 minutes, then pour in the bourbon. Brush over the top of the cupcakes. Then the icing is creme cheese and sugar with creme de menthe (which I couldn't even taste) Anyway, they are at work this morning. Everyone loves them...I am glad. I asked DH to hold  the piping bag while I poured the icing in, but afer the first dollup landed in the bag he let go and the rest fell on the floor...nice mess to clean up. I used what landed in the bag, but eventually had to make more. I guess that's what I get asking for help.

Aother slow day at work.

B: toast, iced vnailla latte

S: banana

L: roast beef swiss chcese sandwich

S: balanced breaks

No plans for dinner tonight, so I don't know. I haven't been sleeping through the night because of my beloved pet and right now I just want to go home and sleep for a few hours.

Neilaray may be my new best friend.

Happy Mother's Day to the mother's!

Good calories!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/08/2016:
Same here - I usually prefer being busy at work - except when I actually am too busy. Lol, we always want the opposite right!? but yeah, when work drags = really bad...

Happy Mother's Day to you. Little girl has a lot because of you!

Also, I'm sure she ran out of time to shower at her mom's. We all know by now that cleanliness is not a priority over there....


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/08/2016:
I think Ruby Tuesday's also has a salad bar with many options!? haven't been there in so long also. Two places, well at least one, that I would love to go to is Red Lobster! for sure! and maybe Ruby Tuesday...nobody to go with lol.

Tuesday night I picked up the little girl and when we got home, I peeled potatoes for dinner. DH grilled chicken and we had corn. Again, I didn't count calories, I will start this again, not sure why I stopped....habits!

We took the little girl to the library and she did her craft, DH, Steve and I walked around the park and had a great time waiting on the little girl. When she was finished we took her home. And I slept all night Tuesday, such a treat!.

But had a weird day Wednesday! Got to work with absolutly nothing to do so I left early. I texted DH i was going to wal-mart to get a few things I needed for derby day Friday at work, I also needed liquor for some mint julep cup cakes I am making. He says he needs lunch meet or else we have peanut butter, which I don't want.

I get to Wal-mart get the lunch meat, cheese, garlic bread - no liquior (they sell liquor at wal-mart but I wasn't paying $11.00 for something I need 2 teaspoons of. Go to the liquor store get the bourbon and creme de menthe and then go home. I try to have a nap in the recliner but between Steve barking and playing and DH texting, it was hard to do. At 3:45 I left to go pick up DH.

We get home and I make dinner. We had chicken, artichocke, gouda mac n cheese, which turned out better than I expected. DH grilled the extra chicken Tuesday night.

B: total bomb - DH and I had a hair up our arse and stopped at a donut shop and bought six donuts.We sat in the parking lot of his work and ate them. OMG we suck so bad.

L: turkey pastrami sandwhich with cheese

D: the chicken, artichoke, gouda mack n cheese

After dinner I went back to Wal-mart to get some cake mix for the cupcakes, which I thought we had. Once I get back, I start making the cup cakes and finish about 9:45, they are still sitting on the stove, I will frost them when I get home this evening.

Got a call from the little girl this morning telling me this is the Mom's with Muffin day. I had it for tomorrow. I told her I am at work sweetie, i won't be able to get there before it's over. I think she said her mom was going so that was good. I told her we would go out to eat tonight! I apoligized again, she seemed a little upset, but they told me it was Friday.

I was looking on the VA website for my test results and they all looked good except two was flagged high - my cholesterol was 118 but said it was high, it shouldn't be over 110, whatever, I was told anything under 200 is good, unless it changed by 90. And then my Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) was high - yeah NO it isn't!! I would think it would be low but anyway can see another pituitary gland MRI in my future as I had a 6mm growth on it, maybe it is growing bigger = high TSH and headaches....I will see on Monday.

B: mini bagel with cream cheese

S: yogurt protein bar

L: left over mac n cheese, plum, banana

S: balanced breaks

D: we have decided to go to Ruby Tuesday and they have a fantastic salad bar which I will certainly use.

The best thing on my routine the fact that I was able to give up the sugar stuff because it really helps in controlling the cravings for food. Those muffins sounded like a really interesting recipe Bourbon and creme de menthe. Have a great day.

Oh Monday! picked up DH from work and went home. Ate the left over Swedish meatballs and noodles. I haven't figured out calories yet.

Slow day at work, people are still here for their training and the office bought pizza for today.

I LOVE PLUMS...that's really the only fruit i bought this week besides a small leftover fruit salad free from work in my fridge from last week (sometimes it just gets thrown out!)...when it's free...

my mom used to make Swedish meatballs...SO GOOD!

it's a slow & rainy day here too...must be the weather that's keeping it quiet and low key here?

yogurt protein bar sounds nice!

no veggies lady!? !?!?!?!?!??!

i have a nice big plum for after work today! that, a rice krispy treat & A little bit of caffeine i think...

Friday night we picked up the little girl and go out to dinner. We chose Cracker Barrell. I had meatloaf, mashed potatoes, baby carrots and a side salad. It was very delightful. Total calories for Friday 1591. If I had someone make me salad, I would eat more salads!

We get home and stay! Itried to watch TV but instead helped the little girl finish her AR book. Great then she can take the test and get some points - still not enough though.

Saturday, DH got up and went to work and I wok up about 8:15 with my best friend migraine on Saturday! what is this about? I will be sure to ask next Monday at the doctor. We sat around until 11:00, I just left the house dirty! We took Steve in for his nail trim, he hated it! Went to the store to pick up a few things, picked up the little girl's miedication from her Wenesday appointment and then met DH at home. He brought Chick Filet for lunch. I can't find what all the craze is about, I thought it was bland.

We did have reservations to see a play, but all three of us opted not to go, so we released our seats. Then we sat to our own devices. DH doings his thing, I was listening to my Thunder get the crap beat out of them and the little girl was you tubing! DH decided not to cook so he ordered pizza.

It was a crash and jammy day at home.

Sunday woke up pretty early! We hung out at the house, did nothing until 1:00 when we left to go on the Amphibian Hunt Hike. It was very humid out. We took the dog and looked for salamanders, toads and frogs. It was OK, next time I will wear rubber boots. Got back home and made Swedish meatballs and noodles with brocolli, which turned out better than expected. We will have these leftovers for dinner tonight.

Little girl left about 6:00 and we will see her again on Tuesday!

This is a meeting in the office today with all kinds of people from all over running in and out. Office brought in subway.

B: mini bagle, iced vanilla latte

S: protein yogurt bar

L: 3 inch turkey cheese sub sandwich, hand full of BBQ lays, raspberry cream cheese cookie

S: plums

D: left over Swedish meatballs and noodles.

just for heads up...someone said snow in my office this morning! OMG.It is May!

Salads are one of my favorite stuff to have. You did have a active weekend. Will be interesting to see what the dr. says about your migraine they seem to be happening more often lately. Have a great day.

Did you and Steve find the Salamanders ?


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/03/2016:
agreed with you about the salad. that's why I purchase so many cooked veggies - so I can eat them :)

Picked up DH and got home after over an hour because it was raining. People in the CLE cannot drive or have much difficulty driving in the rain.

DH made some slider sandwiches with the left over chicken. He cut up the chicken and mixed it with tomatos and onion, topped it with some cheese and it was pretty good at the time.

DH suffered from heartburn most of the night.

Finished the night with 1482 calories.

Slow day at work, but came up with a Kentucky Derby contest that my fly for next week. I volunteered to make milt julep cupcakes and must go in search of some burbon!

Definately on the hunt for a crazy hat this weekend.

pick up the lttle girl after work, if it ever ends, it sure is dragging today! DH and I decided she could pick what to eat for dinner. We didn't thaw anything.

B: toast, vanilla iced latte

S: granola bar

L: 1/2 turkey pastrami sandwich, 1 bag of doritos, 2 plums

S: balanced breaks

We have things planned tomorrow, hike, parade, play...however, two things depend ont he weather. If not those things, errands. I need to take Steve in to have his nails filed...he just hates it. Pick up prescriptions and stuff.

Have a good weekend!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/30/2016:
so you are a plum lady too? I love plums because they are small or big...and the calories are generally pretty low either way. They are easy to eat also. I prefer a plum to an apple !

So, i'm thinking - instead of a vanilla latte which has so much milk, maybe try to switch it with a regular coffee? you can add Equal in, to make it sweet still. and it still has some milk, but the calories will be a TON lower. this is my suggestion on ways to decrease calories and make easy swaps and still be able to eat and feel satisfied.

On the granola bar, try to choose one at the supermarket (and I see that section now as I go there also to buy 100 cal bars to eat before the gym - carbs only, usually low or no protein for me before a workout), anyways, try to choose a granola bar with a little protein in it (at least around 5g and hopefully more around 10g)

Your lunch sounds tasty! yum! I love pastrami. Good job on half. were the doritos baked? if you can find baked ones, you'll eat half the calories. Do you like veggies, if I had your lunch, instead of two plums, i'd have maybe one plum, baked chips, and at least a cup of cooked veggies...

snacks: great!

have a good day.

I hope you don't mind my tips...trying to help based on things I've learned throughout my dieting phases. I've been experimenting with food since I was 20. Now i'm almost 34. That's basically 14 years - a really long time to get to learn what works and what doesn't. I'm still learning now. I love it.

innerpeace on 05/02/2016:
I appreciate your suggestions. I appreciate all your knowledge and thank you for sharing!

This latte I drink because it doesn't taste like coffee at all. It is just a mix that I mix in 2% milk. It is my one indulgence. It doesn't taste anything like coffee, which I hate. So coffee is out. I may switch to 1% or non fat milk...or take a break from it. But it is my weakness.

I do have protein bars, but here's what happens. If we buy something at the store, my husband puts in in my lunch until it is gone. He is quirky and won't open a new box. I can always, make my lunch, but he enjoys it so! I would never dream of taking the joy from him. LOL. Again, thanks for all your insight and help. I do appreciate you.

So allergist was a bust! At first they didn't want to treat her because I'm the step mom...hello, it IS MY insurance! I tried to call DH but he wouldn't answer, so I called his work and the lady who answered was a real biotch!

M. DH please

B: I don't know where he is at the moment.

M: Do you have his extention?

B: I can't say where he is in the plant? 

Me: What is his extention? OMG He works in the lab?

B: I don't know where he is in the plant, I can take a message.

M: Thank you! NO and I hung up.

I text DH and tell him to call me ASAP. He doesn't!! So I bit the bullet and had to call the exwife. She wouldn't answer either, finally she answered I asked her to please tell the nurse I have permission to get the little girl treated. She said OK. I had her on speaker phone and she was talking to someone...it's JoAnn, she can't get sissy treated without me. Whatever, I told her I would call her back when the doctor came in. She said OK.

Finally DH called and then the doctor came back in and I told her my DH is on the phone she said hi, thanks for calling but we don't need you right now....because she's on your wife's insurance. OMG!

Anyway, after talking to the doctor and telling her about her hacking and coughing, she is more concerned she has a breathing/sinus/airway problem because she had mucus caked on the back of her throat - TMI I know but how else can you say this? She did do a skin test on household things: cat, dog, dust mites, roaches, grass, weed and tree pollen and that girl is NOT allergic to anything. She does have a form of eczema that could get worse but no allergies. She told us to continue with the zyrtec and cortisone creme for the rashes and sneezing. Wow, just wow! Oh well I told the little girl I would not bother her again, I'll just lather her up in cortizone creme and send her on her way.

DH grilled the chicken and we had mashed cauliflower, which was good. Both DH and I were hungry about 9:30, we went to bed.

This Thursday is crawling by, it should be 4:00 and it is just 2:00. Very slow at work as well.

B: toast, iced vanilla latte

OH My-----this is such a sad story. I am so glad you are at least trying to help this little one. It breaks my heart to hear these stories. I am not a believer that children should be the center of attention, but I don't believe they should be 'seen and not heard' either. They should be respected, taught and guided and cared for so that when they grow up they will say, "I did it". They may even think they raised themselves and never say 'thank you' but don't give up - she will really appreciate this later in life.

So repairman arrived at 3:00 and was still at the house with my refrigerator torn apart at 4:20. Not knowing how much longer he would be DH went to Jimmy Johns for sandwiches. Not what we planned but what can you do when there's a repairman in the kitchen? So we will have the cauliflower to tonight and DH took chicken out.

I did end up going to Sears and spent way too much money, but I only do this twice a year and I told myself it was a mother's day present. Came away with six tops, two shorts and two capri pants, everything I bought was on sale.

Leaving work to take the little girl to the allergist. I hope they can help her.

It is always nice to purchase a few new outfits for the new season! I really liked going to Old Navy last fall because the style was (and still is) those bigger, longer, flowy tops that don't stick to your torso. they are more comfortable and loose shirts, that are easy to wear and look good in!

Bai has a lot of caffeine, so it should be an easy switch from it to Dr. Pepper. Actually, Bai may have more caffeine than dr. pepper!

your food looks good - when you go to the supermarket, try to choose a granola bar with some protein (try for at least 10g or at least 6-7g if you can't find any "protein granola bars" in the snack section) in it. the ones with protein will keep you satisfied a hair longer.

keep us posted on how the allergist goes and good luck :)

Got home thirty minutes earlier without having to get DH. I drove myself again today because DH stayed home waiting for the freezer repairman who was supposed to be at the house between 8-noon. However after noon came and went DH called the warranty place and the stupid lady said she cancelled our apointment. What the hell? So DH said they scrambled around until they could find someone to send out TODAY!

This is the third appointment we have had, last summer it was putting out a horrid gaslike/chemical smell and we called - but the smell went away and we never could tell where it was coming from. Then later it started leaking from the bottom, we couldn't find out where it was leaking and after cleaning out the freezer and the refrigerator all of a sudden it stopped - not after of course it leaked so much it warped the laminate under it....but again it hasn't leaked since so who knows....and now this - the freezer is not freezing properly. The meat we purchased on Sunday was not yet frozen last night and DH bought a Klondike bar and that was soft and mushy so will see if this man fixes anything! Or we buy a new refrigerator!

I steamed my brussel sprouts, they were so delicious! DH grilled chicken and it was a nice easy dinner...no pasta, bread, potatoes or anything of that nature! Total calories - 1382. I took Steve for a walk and talked to some new neighbors from Florida...I didn't even ask! But was told the wife wanted seasons, not just grean all the time! Oh trust me, you'll get all the seasons you want here!

In Oklahoma the school district closed school because there is a treat for tornados later today! I'm kinda baffled at this. They said they are taking precautions which is great...but would they take these same precautions if they used all the extra days up for snow and ice? I think not! And the entire day? WOW, storms aren't expected until after 3:00 pm. Any reason not to be in school these days- this is a sore subject with me! The little girl is out it seems every other Friday for teacher conference or professional days and I wonder why she has so much trouble...anyway I'll leave this right here!.

B: toast, iced vanilla latte - (the last of the ice - because the ice maker isn't working either for some crazy reason) UGH!

S: granola bar

L: chicken salad, triscuits

S: two plums

Have no idea whats for dinner - but my vegetable is cauliflower!

I wanted to go to Sears and look at a few tops for work, DH said depending on his knee he will stay home...this is OK he always makes me feel bad spending on money on clothes I don't really need, but a girl must feel comfortable at work!

I drive myself again tomorrow because I guess the little girl's mother did not want to take her to her allergy appointment, so I will. I guess she thinks because I made the appointment i should take her...but if you were the mom, wouldn't you want to know? Sometimes I think I am overstepping my boundaries. I want to know why this little girl breaks out all over after a day outside? I'm going to find out!

 

Have a great night!

Have you ever done a clothing swap? You get a bunch of women in the same size range together and everyone brings a bag of clothes and hopefully a portable clothing rack. You then swap them around and everyone leaves with new stuff. Leftovers go to charity.

Sounds like something I would love to do, however, I know no one here yet...to put this together.
