InnerPeace - Monday Mar 30, 2015

Weight: 308.2

It has been a month, my dog chewed up my fit bit so I was out of commission for a few weeks. I had to think long and hard on whether or not to get a new one. Then my friend in Oklahoma got one so that made the decision all the easier. We do the challenges which makes it a bit more fun. Had a trip to the Great Wolf water park, it was just OK. I like Kalahari better. We found the little girl had head lice again, what to do. We also found out she was failing school and some how the mother thinks this is our fault. So now we are spending time with the IXL program, multiplication tables and reading while she is at our house. It can be frustrating.

The weather is also flustrating, it is freaking March 30th and it is supposed to snow again tomorrow, a light dusting, but just the thought sucks. Come on spring, it really needs to warm up. We took Steve, the dog, to the dog park yesterday. He played and ran around with a few other dogs, but again it was just way to cold to stay out for any length of time.

I went shopping for two days in a row, wracking up those steps for the weekend warrior challenge which I won!! YAY Today starts the Work Week Hustle...we'll see how this one turns out.

DH wanted to try to do this 21 NO junk food challenge, so we started this today: NO fast food, white bread, chips, it's a meme been floating around. no biscuits or cookies, no cake, donuts or muffins, no candy, no pastries, no chocolate, no white bread, no ice cream, no fast food, no chips and no soda. I am a slave to a few on the list...namely soda, I love me some diet doctor pepper.
 

I also started a journaling challenge so here is Day 1:  write some basic things about yourself....
If you ask my opinion, ask me a question, or in any way engage with me, expect honesty. I do not sugar coat, play the politically correct game, or spin things to make you feel better. I will listen, empathize and offer advice, but don’t expect the nicey nice stuff from me. I am straightforward and often sarcastic. I don’t tolerate hate, violence or racism. I have strong opinions on politics which will piss you off and I will check my facts and yours before I comment. Above all do not try to sell me anything especially your religion. I am not interested. I will not buy anything from you. I will not go to your church, synagogue, temple, or whatever your place of worship is. I will not criticize your right to believe, when I gave up twenty years of my life for your right to do so.

I am a transplanted sooner who now resides in Ohio. I am still wondering if I like it here, it snows in March...so NO! I have a great husband who gets on my nerves once in awhile, but we're working on that. I'm also learning how to be a step-mom to a 10 year old. It's not fun. My son, is grown (28) is a member of the USAF and lives in Georgia with his wife, no grand kids yet!

 

B: cherry almond quaker oat meal

S: trail mix (minus the M&Ms) peanuts, cashews, filberts, raisons

L: salad with sliced turkery, grapes and a pear I couldn't finish because it was so bitter

S: carrots

d: left over steak, corn on the cob and salad with a frozen fruit smoothie for dessert.

I will walk today at work and then I will walk Steve tonight! Have a great evening!

Progress as of today: 4.7 lbs lost so far, only 13.2 lbs to go!

grannyannie on 03/31/2015:
Good luck on your challenge!


thinnside40 on 03/31/2015:
I've bought 4 fitbits and taken them back each time. Something about them that bothers me as for the wireless, etc. 24/7. You have any reactions?

Just checking in. Work is crazy and I can't get comfortable in my new office. It is much louder in here than my last one, it is hard to concentrate sometimes and the back and forth of people, OMG!

Not going to be all down and depressing so I will post again when I fill I am making a true effort and seeing progress. As of this moment, I look through my closet to find clothes that I can still wear to work!

It has been stupid cold, one can't even stay outside longer than a few minutes or else they would have a boby part frost bitten.

Must do some soul searching!

Stay warm. And good luck with your soul searching - I'm sure it will produce the intended effect.

I don't have much to report!

DSD had fun at the life size candy land game, I watched and took pictures.

Friday we moved all day, hopefully we will be finished on Tuesday.

DH and I canceled our Valentine's Date because it was -5 out and I couldn't stay warm.

I got so discouraged with myself, I have came to the conclusion that the weight watchers meetings do not help me, I am a lesser person than everyone who can stick too and have weight watchers as a lifestyle. It is not for me. DD did ask, you aren't fighting depression anymore so what do you think your problem is? Uh...wow if I knew the answer to that I wouldn't be overweight.

The weekend was just hanging out, because the weather was so bad. Monday, I crocheted me a hat after I lost my favorite wool hat Thrusday night between the candy land game and home.

I made a crockpot of turkey chili which turned out very good, I was surprised..

I will make another post, when I figure out what I'm going to do for myself!

Have a great evening.

Umpqua on 02/18/2015:
I've never done weight watchers, but I'm wondering what about it doesn't work for you. Do you find it too restrictive? If I feel like I'm being deprived of anything or on too strict a regime I just won't stick with it. I'm also not the best in large group situations so I don't know if those meetings would be of any help to me either.

I'm sure with some experimentation you can find something else that works for you - have you tried just plugging foods into Myfitnesspal or Fitday? Sometimes just looking at a day's or week's worth of foods can show areas where you can cut back that you weren't even aware of and that won't leave you feeling deprived.

Office was painted and computer was moved and the phone was hooked up, I am now in my new windowless office. It will take some time to get to used for sure.

DH and I stopped at the store and picked up the spaghetti sauce and he snatched up a loaf of garlic bread. once home, I started cooking the spaghetti we were supposed to have Tuesday night and he drove off to get our chance of winning the $500 million power ball jackpot...no luck, but man we were hoping. We were planning on how we would spend all that money!! It never hurts to dream!

D: spaghetti with garlic mushroom marinara sauce, garlic bread (2 pieces) they were big!

S: chex mix (sweet & salty)

Tuesday Morning

B: frozen fruit, greek yogurt, banana, chia seed smoothie

S: yogurt covered raisins, iced coffee

L: turkey wrap with salad

S: 1/2 peanut butter sandwich

We pick up the DSD tonight and we are going to a life size candy land game at the library. They also provide a cupcake and decorating supplies. It should be fun for the little girl. It is supposed to get bitterly cold this weekend, I think 1 degree is the high on Sunday. I will be more than happy to see spring get here.

D: We will eat the left over spaghetti before we head off to our Candy Land game.

DH felt better and did go to work today. Boss is sick now! Movers didn't show up to complete the move, so hopefully they come back and finish Friday.

No fun to go to a windowless office. What is fun is the candy land game - sounds great.

Need to find you one of those landscape pictures :)

sorry you lose the window...i'd love one too all day long!!! do you work near xray units?


Maria7 on 02/17/2015:
Yes, a good landscape picture can do wonders...or even a stained glass to adorn the wall.

Got home to my sick husband, he slept all day, he still looked sick but said he felt better. I ate left over chicken from dinner the night before. It was even better. I also had hummus for a snack.

B: Smoothie, banana, greek vanilla yogurt, frozen fruit, chia seeds and kale. It tasted fine, looked pretty bad and I still think it is too thick. Will try adding juice or something to it.

S: protein bar

L: 1/2 sandwhich

There is nothing else in my lunch bag, I guess I forgot to put anything else in my lunch.

D: TBD we learned we have no spaghetti sauce, I may stop after work and get some on the way home.

I received an email from my friend in Oklahoma. She tells me she is afraid I'm eating all the food I post on facebook....un, NO. I just enjoy food porn. We started WW together back in 2006 and are still trying to figure out how to do it. I think she has her head straight now!! Me, I'm still trying.

Office is being painted right this minute, the computer guy is supposed to move my computer tonight and I should be installed in my windowless office completely by Friday. Not looking forward to it at all.

I signed DH and I up for an Valentine's evening of chocolate and jazz. It is at one of the local parks in an old carriage barn. It says you can try samples of different chocolate, well I really don't like to spend money so if it costs to sample, we will enjoy the music. It also says there is a path of luminaries to a bon fire, so I am looking forward to it.

I also have plans to start the couch to 5K one day.

I saw this picture and thought what a beautiful bird, however it is a painted woman posing as a bird. Awesome!! Hope you all have a great evening!

Hope your Hubby feels better. I made some Zitis yesterday and in the place of speghetti sauce, I used cooked onions, tomato pieces and ketchup...turned out pretty good.


thinnside40 on 02/11/2015:
Oh gosh, some facebook friends of mine (didn't know them before)... The recipes they share look soooooo yummy! Then next post is about weight loss or griping about how they can't "lose" weight... A couple are "foodies" and DO try all the recipes... Chocolate and jazz sounds fun... :)

The valentine's evening sounds great. I tried to get us reservations at our favorite place, but alas, they were booked. Looks like it might be a sammich night for us! As for the running - good for you! I'm still waiting for the 5k to couch plan.....that, I got nailed!

Weighed in a WW, was pleasantly surprised. We did have a busy weekend. Up at dawn to go to the 7:30 WW meeting. Those folks there sure inspire me to go back, to see how their week went, especially one guy who has lost 87 pounds. Boy oh boy, that is incredible.

DH and little girl went to Home Depot to a build a heart box class for kids, DH told me she really seemed to like building the box, which is good.

Afterwards we all went to the local park and rented snow shoes, a first for all of us. It was very fun, we had a blast. The weather was about 40 degrees so it wasn't too cold. Little girl kept having a hard time keeping one of her snow shoes on, so DH ended up carrying her's back. We stayed out about 1 1/2 hours. We then headed out for our tour of the YMCA, still haven't decided if we want to join. We don't have a fitness center close that has a pool and the Y is over 10 miles away, would we go often or not or would the distance be another excuse.

We then went to Applebee's to celebrate DH's birthday. I opted for the cedar plank grill chicken and something. The something had a funny taste but was supposedly healthy, so I ate it. DH got his free strawberry shortcake shooter and we went back home. Both DH and little girl were passed out before 8:00 pm, love to be active enough to wipe those two out!

Sunday was the normal, yall go shopping and me and Steve will stay and do laundry. Little girl opted to not go to the birthday party so she stayed until 6:00. DH made scrambled eggs and sausage for breakfast and then brought me a slice of pizza from Sam's club for lunch. It was really the size of two slices so I was not hungry for dinner. DH made the little girl a chicken fried steak sandwich with cheese and she ate before she went home.

I had to watch the Walking Dead, I just love that show.

Monday - was crazy at work with the movers and stuf it was hard to take a break to write.

B: frozen fruit, 1/2 banana, vanilla yogurt, chia seed smoothie

L: turkey breast, salad lettuce wrap

D: grilled chicken (General Tso's sauce) and some fried rice (rice-a-roni) brand. It was pretty good, but the rice tasted very salty. We were out of regular rice to use so we improvised with the rice-a-roni.

S: pretzels & hummus

DH was up and down all night with a stomach bug, he did not go to work today. I hope he isn't contagious.

Tuesday is crazy at work, the movers are finished building the cubicles and we be ready to move everyone tomorrow. The painter is also coming tomorrow to paint my new windowless office and I will be moved out of my great office by Friday. Also today was the last candidate for the job position. I am so glad this process is over. Then the boss asks when we will have our decision...uh, hopefully by Friday. I hate making a recommendation of who will get a job offer and who will not. All were very good in different ways.

B: toasted English muffin and iced coffee

L: 1/2 sandwich; yogurt covered raisens

D: supposed to be spaghetti, depends on how DH feels.

Progress as of today: 4.7 lbs lost so far, only 13.2 lbs to go!

Yay for a loss!! I snow shoed with my Dad a few years back and it was so much fun. Good exercise too and that's great that you and your husband plan such fun weekend activities for the little one!

So the last two days have been very busy. Still trying to move offices. The workers are still building the cubicles for the people upstairs to move into. The desk was put in my new office and it is huge, too big, but I will make it work. Yesterday I spent most of the day listening to the electrictian curse every ten minutes. After he loudly said...ouch that hurt. I asked if he electrocuted himself. He says NO! If you get electrocuted you die, you can only get electrocuted once!! I asked, did you get zapped then, he said no, I dropped the screwdriver on my head. Oh ok!! I didn't ask about the other tweleve times he said ouch! Must not be very good at what he's doing, I'm just glad I'm not going to sit in the cubicles.

Tuesday night DH opted for Jimmy John's sandwiches.

Wednesday morning I did try a smoothie for breakfast: greek yogurt, frozen blue berries, banana and some kale. It was very tasty. Next time I will use some milk because it was a bit thick, but it did taste very good.

L: Peanut butter sandwich, nectarine

D: DH made this chicken, parmesan, brocolli, alfredo thing

S: hummus and pretzels. I realy like the roasted pine nut hummus it is very good.

Thursday was another busy day at work with the moving.

B: english muffin, iced coffee

L: peanute butter sandwich, nectarine

D: left over chicken wrap with salad

No snack in the PM, I was getting hungry but drank a Diet Dr. Pepper instead. It helped a lot.

Friday.

DH stayed home from work because tomorrow is his 50th birthday. I think he is emotional about turning 50. He keeps making comments that he feels old. He is getting her truck tags, renewing his Driver Licence and getting a haircut.

This is a little girl weekend, he is going to pick her up and then take Steve in to get his last two shots. We are suppsoed to go to a Slavak Club fish fry tonight for DH's birthday, this is what he wanted...for some reason.

Tomorrow I am going to the WW meeting and DH is taking the little girl to Home Depot for a class to build a heart box for Valentine's Day. I'm sure in the afternoon they will go shopping, unless I find us an activity to do. They did have snow shoeing at the metropark...might be an experience.

So DH gets a text from his exwife asking if the little girl can come back home early on Sunday for her cousins 6th birthday party. Really? We dropped her off early the last Sunday to sit at the funeral home with you for five hours and now this? She wants to take take take and never give.

DH replied that, it's his birthday weekend and we were busy with plans...which isn't true. He just said that because the ex wouldn't let the little girl come to the Jurrasic Quest with us last weekend. I told him, this should involve the little girl, if she wants to go to the party, she should go, it's not about him and the time he has with her. Anyway, we will see how this one plays out.

Busy day today with the 2nd candidate coming, the 3rd one comes next Tuesday, can't wait until this hiring process is over!! I hope you all have a great weekend.

One last thing: I did take my measurements and might be brave enough to post them here soon, they are awful, I am huge!

Oh boy, you've been busy and dealing with a lot. Sorry you have all that drama with the ex, but its nice you are there for the little girl. You're doing great, don't worry about the measurements...as they go down, you'll be so happy you took them along the way. Have a great day.


museumgirl on 02/06/2015:
Oh, and that electrician story made me laugh. Sometimes you wonder WHAT they are doing...


liza36 on 02/06/2015:
Taking measurements is a great indication of success especially when the scale isn't moving. I should do that too, since the scale is stuck right now. Enjoy your husband's b-day weekend.


Umpqua on 02/06/2015:
I always add a bunch of ice and almond milk (or any kind of milk) to my smoothies to thin them out. I hope you have a fun birthday weekend with your hubby and his little one!


biscottibody59 on 02/06/2015:
I have to say I admire you for the effort you make for this girl--knowing me I'd drop it all in my husband's lap and go on my merry way with my own agenda. Just so you know--we all wouldn't just step up like you have:-)

Just don't let your goals for improving yourself take a backseat for too long or for too much time!

Happy BD to hubby--50 can be a great wake-up call for many positive changes--pass it on!


thinnside40 on 02/06/2015:
I've contemplated measuring myself.. Still undecided... Best wishes for a good weekend!

Because I didn't eat lunch I got home starving. I opted for pretzels and hummus. Dinner was the left over chicken, cheese, dorito casserole thing, DH made. It was ok, very greesy and I didn't like the raw onions. For a snack or dessert I finished off the chex mix. This wasn't regular chex mix, it was the delicious muddy buddy chex mix. The same I had earlier in the day.

Sad to say, again we just sat in the house. We do this for four to five hours a night. We leave Steve in the kennel for the whole day we are at work, so I hate to leave the house so he won't have to go in the kennel. That is the real reason I don't go shopping on the weekend. I don't want my dog in the kennel. Why have a dog, if he has to stay in the kennel all the time? He was my Christmas present last year and I didn't know I would get so attached to him. But I don't like him in the kennel. We used to leave him in the house, but everything from the carpet to furniture got chewed on, so after tons of research and reading, I agreed to put him in the kennel. He hates it! He goes in, but I know he hates it. I have told my DH this many times. He just says...he's a dog!! Yes, but he's my dog!!

I started to complete an on-line membership application to the Y, but didn't finish it. I was waiting to get a referral card completed to get a discount off the rate. Would you believe someone from the Y called and said...hey noticed you started to fill out an application on line, why did you stop? Do you have questions? WOW...really? I guess nothing is actually prviate anymore.

B: toasted English muffin, iced coffee

L: turkey wrape with kale salad with poppyseed dressing, banana & necterine

D: DH said something about going out, don't know where or what he wants.

Work sucks today! Sometimes, I really hate people. But my girlfriend from Oklahoma sent me this picture...Thanks, thanks a lot really needed this today. 

I'm sure this says KEEP GOING!! Have a great day!

Got up Saturday morning and weighed in at WW. Not as bad as I thought, but it's not good. Took Steve to the vet, he hated it. They had to put a muzzle on my ten pound dog!! He was snapping at everyone, poor baby. He moped around the rest of the day.

DH and I started out about 6:00 for our date night. Somewhere along the way, I became very crabby and made us both miserable. I have no reason. I don't know why I do half the things I do. We arrive at the diner we usually eat and I'm like, why are all these people here? We had to wait on a table, not going to happen, so I walked out. I just get overwhelmed. I feel like there are so many people cramped up in this tiny little area. Why do I have to wait through three lights to turn to get home. Where are all these people going. OMG! DH has lived in this town all his life. I ask where is the theater to watch the play. He says I don't know, ask Siri. Really? You've lived here your whole entire life and you don't know where this place is? This annoys me! I say, 'just for aguments sake, when we get there, do not tell me, Oh, I didn't know this is where this place was', because he does that all the time!!

We find the theater and he says, wow, I didn't know this was a theater (it was an old renovated church) then he says, hey keep going and right down here is hwy 58 and we can eat at this other restaurant. Steam was coming out of my ears!! Everytime!!  I opted for pasta. The play was nicely done, very comical! I enjoyed it.

Sunday, it snowed all day. DH snow blowed the drive way twice and then had to get up and do it again this morning so I could get out of the driveway. He drove the 4X4 to work at 6:30, me my start time was delayed 4 hours, but the roads downtown were awful! I did get up this morning and do Walk Away the Pounds, I shovled snow off the patio so Steve could get out, the snow is up to his chest, he hops around in it like a rabbit.

Sunday:

B: bagel thin with 2 Tbsps of cream cheese

L: chili dog

S: hummus and pretzels

D: chicken, corn, cheese dorito thing, casserole

Desk was put in my new office, it is so little. DH suggested I purchase a poster of a window and hang it in there. My boss did say I could get it painted, I will pick some cheery, happy color. I might have just enough room to move around whenever the file cabinets are moved in too.

B: skipped breakfast - had chex mix

L: Diet Dr. Pepper

D: will be left over chicken casserole and salad.

No plans for tonight, except shovel the new fallen snow, with 3 more inches predicted tonight. My front and back yards today.

Progress as of today: 3.1 lbs lost so far, only 14.8 lbs to go!

Jezebel on 02/02/2015:
Wow, beautiful pics. But I can't imagine getting out into that for work on a regular basis. Please be safe.

Sorry, I chuckled over the "man tale". Couldn't help it. I've done similar things... no idea why either. Years later, I still shudder in embarrassment and disbelief over 4 such "date nights" when I turned into a freak I still don't recognize.

Take it easy.


thinnside40 on 02/02/2015:

So much drama at my house. I left work to get home. DH was putting dinner together. We had baked fish and salad, which was pretty good. DH then says he would like no bake cookies, so I threw a batch together. Why? We have no will power, no intestinal fortitude, no restraint whatsoever! We just freakin' love food, we love the taste of food, it is our drug of choice! And It goes without saying...they were delicious...6 points a piece delicious.

DH told me DSD told him her mother and step-dad was talking about us again saying the only reason DH was with me was for my money. What the hell? I wonder where I get all the money they believe I have. I get up and go to work like everyone else. DSD also said that her mother and step-dad said we just try to buy her. Again, we just do stuff, we plan things every weekend, we aren't just sitting in the house watching TV doing nothing. Really, how much does it cost to go to the library to play bingo...Nothing. How much does it cost to go to the library to do yoga....nothing!!  This all comes from my DH asking if we could have the DSD one afternoon this weekend to go to the Jurassic Quest. The thing is only scheduled for one weekend, just happens to be the weekend we don't have the DSD. I just thought it would be a fun and educational experience. It's not about buying anyone. This in turn, pisses my DH off and thus starts the texting war. I despise this. I hate it! Just let it go already.

I just don't understand how the mother could be so hateful and not care about her D's wellbeing. I mean I made her a dental appointment, her first. The girl is 10 years old, she should have been to the dentist way before this. Why does this make me a bad person? I just want the best for her, like keeping lice out of her hair, giving her a chance to experience fun educational stuff and taking her to the dentist. I don't necessarily think this means I'm trying to buy anything! Oh for pete's sake!! The more I think about it the more it pisses me off.

We are researching gym membership. We have nothing very close to our home. The closest one is 6 miles which is Planet Fitness, not what I was looking for. The next is heath centers and YMCA, price ranging from $38-95 per month. OUCH! I am going to ask tomorrow at the WW meeting if there are any Y members there to see if I can get a referral for 20% off, anything will help.

B: bagel thin; iced coffee

S: yogurt raisons

L; fish wrap with salad; 2 no bake cookies

D: I have no idea

After the WW meeting, Steve has a vet appointment tomorrow, the last appointment he had made him mad for two days. I hope he doesn't get mad this time. We also have tickets to see a play Love, Sex and the IRS. Sounds pretty funny.

Tomorrow is the fresh start at WW, so I will be sure to post my weight gain.

Progress as of today: 6.9 lbs lost so far, only 11 lbs to go!
