DH and I drove separately because he had to go get the little girl. He also brought dinner home. I had a chicken ranch wrap, it was pretty good. I read with the little girl until 6:00 then we had a craft class to go to. We drove ten miles out of the way, because I thought I knew where this library branch was, nope I didn't. The kids did a glue/paint craft. The instructor said to spread the glue all around, then put drops of paint and then use a toothpick and pull through the paint drops. This is not what the kids heard, they heard, cover your shape with glue and use as much paint as possible and mix all the colors together until you get a brown blob!  Kids are funny. Little girl showing her pink blob star!

when we returned home the little girl read a giant panda book and gathered up some clothes and her leftover food and headed out the door when her mother came to pick her up. DH and I took the dog for a walk and even jogged a little. We used to job a lot 28 years ago! When we got home I looked through a cook book and watched Survivor and the TLC 600 pound life, which is so sad to me.

Day 4 of journaling challenge: What is the significance of a user name/log in name. I have so many, but I chose InnerPeace. I was at work telling a cashier that I was not happy that I thought something was missing but I couldn't figure it out. I was trying church and everything and she told me I was looking for Inner Peace, so I adopted that name and though I am so much more happy than I was then, I feel like I have yet to accomplish this Inner Peace, ergo, I still search for it. I have taken different things to see if I can get where I want to be, but the search continues. I have been to several yoga classes, a guided meditation class and now zentangle, which has helped. A continuous journey as is weight loss...oh yeah and the girl scout cookies I forgot I ordered just shows up on my desk today! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!

B: maple brown sugar oatmeal

L: turkey pastrami sandwich on whole wheat

s: 1/2 peanut butter on whole wheat

D: I don't know yet. DH stayed home from work, he is shopping and getting a hair cut, so hopefully he will cook something great too.

I hope you all have a great evening!

 

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

Day 3 of the 30 day challenge...Write about my day in detail. I will use Tuesday..and I'm not proud of this.
I hit the snooze button twice and did not get up early to walk. I took a shower, dried (which is lying on the bed for 20 minutes) played with my dog and waited for my husband to finish with the bathroom.
I brushed my teeth, dried my hair, shaved and put what little makeup I do wear on. I hung up my bathrobe and then got dressed.
I went downstairs and ate the cranberry almond oatmeal my husband made me, took my one pill and looked out the dining room window.
I reluctantly got up and put my shoes and coat on to drive to work. Traffic was not too bad, I dropped husband off at his work and then I made it to work at 7:20.
I am not busy at work, my work is in spurts. So I researched how to teach a 10 year old multiplication tables so she will be able to learn it better.
I reserved the atrium for a screening of a documentary and ordered food for the reception after.
I emptied out the dollar changer (coin machine) I emptied out the two copy machines and completed a deposit slip.
I looked on the internet for zentangle patterns...for a long time.
I walked through the library and talked to a few people.
I ate lunch which was a turkey pastrami sandwich on whole wheat with a slice of colby jack cheese with grapes. I talked to my boss to confirm the plan for the reception. The IT guy asked me questions about the reception to make sure he understood what I was asking for.
I walked to the main classroom building and made the deposit. I walked back through the main library and people watched basically. I then came back to my office.
I did some more zentangle looking and it was finally time to go home.
I drove to my husband's work to get him. I was listening to Garth Brooks' CD Man Against the Machine and started boohooing when I heard the song "Send'em on down the road" saying how you live and die for your kids but you have to let them go. I got all sad because I miss my kid, and he won't answer my texts....the 28 year old brat!
I stopped and picked up my husband from his work. We drove home, The traffic wasn't bad again, which I am glad. Once home, I spent time with my dog. Husband grilled pork roast on the grill and I roasted some carrots with a combination of (honey, brown sugar, tobasco, pineapple juice and raisins) turned out very good. After dinner, we walked the dog through the neighborhood and I wanted to drive to the Discount Drug store to get some candy to fill some easter eggs for work. I also won $20 off of the scratch tickets so I put a $1.00 tickets in three eggs to hide at work in the morning. I watched Jeorpardy and NCIS and then washed dishes and made lunch for work. I then watched an episode of chopped and finally called it a night. That was my day in a detailed nutshell.

B: cranberry almond oatmeal

s: 1/2 peanut butter on whole wheat

L:  turkey pastrami and colby jack on whole wheat and grapes

S: carrots and hummus

D: hamburger patty and soup (not sure yet)

We have the dear step daughter today, so we will do school work and read until our Easter craft class at the library which starts at 6:30.

I hope you all have a great day!

Day two of journal challenge - 10 likes & 10 dislikes
Likes should be relatively easy, because the likes totally encompasses the dislikes...
1. I not only like, but I love being with my husband. He makes me happy, he makes me laugh and most of all he makes me feel loved. I just like him as a person, he is my best friend.
2. Music, I like music. I listen to it all day, every day especially at work.
3. Family time. I like doing things with my husband. Trying new things and having new adventures.
4. I love lazy days. That could be just sitting and watching TV reruns and dozing in the recliner. I like knowing there are a million things that need to get accomplished, but instead just sit.
5. I like alone time. As much as I love my family and husband, there are times when I just like being alone, because during that time, I realize I would rather have my husband around than be without him.
6. I like my dog. I love his never ending loyalty and faithfulness. He is a solid companion.
7. I love Diet Dr. Pepper. This is my drink of choice.
8. I love reading. I prefer romantic drama/mystery, who done it books. I would love to write my own book. I have thoughts and ideas, if only to get them on paper.
9. I love powder. I like the silky smooth feel of it.
10. I like watching football and basketball, just because the athleticism is so amazing. I know I could never be able to accomplish the physical demands ever, watching those young people give it all they have is so inspiring...where does it come from?

10 dislikes....
1. I have issues with large amounts of people. I feel crowded like everywhere I want to go there are one million people waiting to get there as well.
2. I hate incompetent people who feel they are doing a good job but really are not.
3. I hate being politically correct! I hate the everyone gets a trophy for playing attitude! If you suck, i'ma gonna tell ya!!
4. I hate having to work for a living. To be independently wealthy, what a rush that would be.
5. I hate starting something and never finishing it, ergo, I am still fat! I have no will power or mind set or intestinal fortitude or whatever it is that gets in your mind and makes you stick to a decision, that makes you want to, above all else, accomplish a goal!! Whatever this is, I don't have it but continually search for it.
6. I hate the phrase 'if I can do it, you can do it' what the hell ever!! You don't know me or what I've been through, how something as stupid as forgetting to do something can totally screw up my day.
7. I hate liars. I hate how people will tell you anything just so they don't have to tell the truth, especially liars who lie just because if they didn't lie they would look like a failure or complete idiot in your eyes if they didn't. Hey, take your lasing and deal with it the first time, because when/if I find out about your lie, we are done!
8. I hate being fat. But again, I apparently don't hate it enough to do anything about it. Why? Lazy days, eating, pop, lazy!!
9. I hate driving to work, again with the people and traffic, the people and hustle and bustle of everyone trying to get to someplace!
10. I hate wanting things I can't have!

It's sad doing those lists, it was hard to recognize something you love or when the hate surely outnumbers the like! I would love to do so much, I dream about it, it just hurts to start, it hurts to take those first steps and I can't tolerate the pain. Even before the start, I have a rash under my large, disgusting breasts that burns and hurts so bad, how will sweating affect that rash? I'm thinking, it's not going to be a good thing.
Most people suck! How to get over this. Why do I let sucky people affect me? I do not like my job. I'm not getting any younger so I need to find something I like and stick with it! If only I could be my own boss...maybe, no! If I just didn't have to work at all, sounds good.
Neck hurts today. Boob rash hurts today! Rainy weather, cold, disgusting gray walls, it's going to be a great day!

B: cranberry almond oatmeal

S: 1/2 peanute butter sandwich on whole wheat bread

L: turkey pastrami on whole wheat bread

D: grilled honey musturd pork loin with sweet spicy carrots

S: frozen fruit smoothie. very good! Husband makes the best.

 

Total steps so far...over 10,000 very happy with steps today. Hope you all had a great day!

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

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Oh, and that electrician story made me laugh. Sometimes you wonder WHAT they are doing...

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.

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!

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!
