legcramps - Friday Jul 05, 2013

Weight: 168.0

This is what happens when I burn out during the workweek:

Thursday:

AM - sugar, apple fritter with sugar, more sugar, caffiene with sugar

Really healthy salad for lunch

PM - salt, salty crackers, salty mozza cheese, more salt

Exercise - non existent, did everything OTHER than workout

Dinner - wait, what?

Evening - salt, salt... sugar. It's almost like I was playing Duck, Duck, Goose. By myself.

Finally, I turned off the television and opened up a book. The snacking stopped after that. Unfortunately, I got deep into the book and didn't come out of it until close to midnight. And so the cycle will likely continue today.

I made cinammon rolls from scratch yesterday to take camping this weekend. They turned out pretty well, so I brought one for breakfast today. Pecans instead of raisins, NO icing or yummy gooey stuff.


07/05/13:

Breakfast: coffee with sugar, cinammon roll, water with crystal light

Lunch: pizza day at work! yikes!

Exercise: mow lawn

Dinner: *sigh* something with some substance would be nice

Other: pack car for camping weekend, visit friend

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 07/05/2013:
Wow ! Great post today. It rained all day and I napped and napped.


V on 07/05/2013:
Have fun on your camping trip and please forgive me, I couldn't resist

Have a good evening friend ;)


Umpqua on 07/06/2013:
I hope you have an awesome weekend of camping!


sleepyRN on 07/07/2013:
Lol. Your post made me giggle. I guess we all have those days huh?


liza36 on 07/08/2013:
I can relate to your salt / sugar diet. I think I'm on the same one! Hope you had a good time camping.

whew, i'm burning out fast in this heat...

I had to walk to pick up my car after work yesterday because I took it in for some repairs; it was a 20 minute walk from work. Then stopped at Mom's quickly, and off to the grocery store for an hour of isle walking. I was coined the "Foodie" for our girls' camping trip this weekend, so I had to pick up most of the food. I've never seen my cart so full; it was so memorable I was tempted to take a picture!

I didn't have time for dinner before slo-pitch so I had two servings of triscuit crackers with mozarella cheese. Even though I had a delicious chicken BLT salad for lunch, I was pretty hungry by the time I got through grocery-shopping, and the cheese and crackers really hit the spot.

Slo-pitch was tiring! But I think I actually get more exercise golfing. We lost by two runs, and that was only because the sky opened up and we got some thunder and lightening. Don't want to be stuck in the middle of a field with an aluminum bat. My running could have been much better, but I didn't want to push it - and thank goodness I didn't because that little bit of jogging was enough to make my knee cry out. I stuck to backcatching which was OK on the knee I guess, except for a few fouls that I tried to run to get.

When I got home, I heated up leftovers. I'd rather not have much left in the fridge before camping this weekend. Two hot dogs and 2/3 cup curried basmati rice. And then I finally finished the last of the oreo cookie cake! Only took a whole week. Now just a couple of donuts to go. Don't ask.

Didn't get the lawn mowed for obvious reasons. Maybe tonight.


07/04/13:

Breakfast - Tim Horton's apple fritter, coffee with sugar, water with crystal light

Lunch - cafeteria salad, hopefully another yummy chicken BLT!

Exercise - golf 9 holes; mow lawn

Dinner - chicken strips, 2/3 cup curried basmati, cooked sweet peas

Other - prep food for camping (cut up fruit, peel and soak potatoes)

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 07/04/2013:
Phew ! I'm tired just Reading about your day, LC. Have a great one .

V on 07/04/2013:
LOL!! I am not one of those thrill seekers either, when it comes to lightning I get the heck outta dodge..Hahahaha

Hey BTW Apple fritters is my weakness..LOVE them too much..

RyC jello shots go hand in hand with slo- pitch <3 Good evening :)

It was so hot yesterday, I felt like throwing up after golfing. The heat just sucked all the energy out of me - no excuse for the terrible game I had, but gosh I am not at all adjusted to this hot weather yet! I think it reached 31 or 32 above (that's celsius) and that is considered a heat wave up here LOL. Today is no different, still hot - love it, just can't do much in it!

So after work I made a quick stop to run an errand, then was out on the golf course for 9 holes of heat exhaustion LOL. I stopped at home afterwards to change and ate 1/2 cup of mac n'cheese before the ballgame. Snacked on sunflower seeds and water at the game.

It was a very long game with a little action at the end from some angry crowd-dwellers and I didn't get home until almost 11:00pm! I had to eat something more than some mac n'cheese for dinner, so I stayed up long enough to finish the thai chicken wrap I had in the fridge. Spicey! Took me a while and a bottle of water to get it down, but I did. Then I went to bed.

And was wide awake at 4:30am. Really?!


07/03/13:

Breakfast - coffee with sugar, water with crystal light

Lunch - sandwich or salad from cafeteria

Dinner - getting groceries today; I will let you know!

Snack - oreo cookie cake (I really need to finish this before it goes bad!)

Exercise - slo-pitch!!!!!!!! and mow lawn

Other - groceries, visit sick friend


Yes, my first slo-pitch game of the season! I don't know how it will go; please cross your fingers and toes that all goes smoothly and nothing happens to my knee!!!

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 07/03/2013:
Yay for slo-pitch starting up, I'm sure you're excited! I will be thinking of you and hoping your knee is up to the task.


V on 07/03/2013:
Yayyy for slo- pitch and jello shots :) Have a wonderful evening!!

Long weekend due to Canada Day on Monday; it was a wonderful one for sure!!

9 holes at the golf course on Saturday morning; man I was out of practice after so many days off (4). In the afternoon I tackled my big flower bed, pulling weeds and trying not to get too close to the rose bush for fear of bumblebees attacking me. Still some work to do on this flower bed.

I really didn't feel like doing much on Sunday, so I drove out to the lake where a few friends were camping, and hung out with them for the afternoon. Does swimming in the lake count as exercise? And tugging a friggin 18 foot dingy behind me while swimming? With people on it? Regardless, it tired me out. It tired out my knee as well; getting on and off the dingy was really tough on it; I was worried I may have done some irreparable damage to it but it seems to be okay this morning. Went to the ball game in the evening and we WON!

I slept in on Canada Day, then spent half the day waiting for a friend to stop by for a visit. Very, VERY frustrating when someone tells you they will be coming through town before noon, and then doesn't show up until almost 3:30pm. When you are leaving at 4:00pm because you've now made other plans. So there was a short visit, then a few of us went to the driving range for an hour's worth of work, and out for dinner. Dessert was ridiculous; I ordered a sundae for three of us to split, and it was HUGE. Ridiculously huge. I was on a sugar high for the rest of the evening, which we spent at the ball park again! Another WIN for the local team!


07/02/13:

Breakfast / Morning - coffee with sugar, water with iced tea, water with mio

Lunch - 12:00pm turkey sandwich or chicken salad from the cafeteria

Exercise - 4:30pm golf 9 holes

Dinner - 6:30pm leftovers (1/2 thai chicken wrap, 1/2 cup mac & cheese)

Other - 7:00pm ball game

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 07/02/2013:
Happy belated Canada Day ! V wrote yesterday that she was going to watch American ninja on t.v. last night. It is an obstacle course that competitors run through. Hauling passengers in a Dingy eh' ? Go easy on the knee.

legcramps on 07/02/2013:
The show sounds interesting, will have to look for it over here in the hicks ;) Thanks, I will take it easy today on the knee but so far, so good.


Umpqua on 07/02/2013:
Belated Happy Canada Day! Sounds like you had a really fun weekend and I'm glad your knee recovered after they dinghy incident. Hope you have an excellent golf game today!

I finished the leftovers yesterday, aside from the pasta salad of which I made another batch because it was so yummy.

No exercise; I was tuckered out after work, so I did a few things around the house and then took a nap. When I woke up from my nap, I was grumpy and hot. So I kept to myself last night.

My List of Things To Do is getting longer with each passing day. Time to make a new list and start prioritizing!

I need to add more veggies to this, and I know I still have some strawberries to finish up in the fridge.

I would like to golf after work today, but I have a tonne of other things I should get done instead. It might be time to catch up on everything and everyone that i've been neglecting.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

WHAT? It's THURSDAY? ALREADY?!

So awesome. Warning... Long catchup post ahead.

I had another garage sale on Friday evening and Saturday morning; it went a lot better and I finally got rid of a few bigger things that were taking up my garage space :) I don't recall what my meals were!

On Saturday after the garage sale, I shot 18 holes at the golf course, watched part of our local baseball team demolish their opponent, and then headed out to a cabaret with friends. I was the designated driver (doesn't happen often, so I had to mention that LOL) and had a pretty decent time; I even talked to X, though I really would have rather not; he then decided to start texting me after I got home (which was around 3:30 a.m.). I ignored after a few and passed out in bed. Long day! I had fast food today :(

I felt so blegh when I woke up on Sunday; I managed not to do anything in the morning except nap on and off on the couch. A friend finally woke me up and took me golfing for another 18 holes. Lots of water today, but still very bad choices in eats.

Monday - Yet another 18 holes of golf. Also, I really needed to eat better, so I got Subway today and split it into two meals. Better.

Tuesday - It rained. Boo. So I mopped the floors, did some laundry, and cleaned the bathroom. I also picked up groceries and paid my taxes for the year. Wow, there goes half my savings. Yuck! Still trying to clean up my meals... today was not such a great one for eats.

Wednesday - It was so beautiful outside during the day! I mowed the lawn, pulled weeds and trimmed trees outside all afternoon. Managed not to get sunstroke though that was kind of a miracle. Then I hosted a BBQ; burgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, veggies, fruit and dessert! I made an oreo cookie cake that was marvelous and used light whipped topping, fat-free pudding, and reduced-fat cookies or whatever they're called. Anyways, it was delicious and I will definitely be making this again this summer!

Due to the late night, I was slightly bleary-eyed this morning. Hopefully the next two days at work go by quickly because there's a long weekend coming up after Friday! I'm so lucky!!!!

Eats today: leftover burger, pasta salad, strawberries and whipped topping, coffee (p.s. i've icksnayed the mochas and am drinking my coffee black), and idon'tknowwhatfordinner. I really need to start planning my meals again.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/27/2013:
Wow, you've been busy. Good going on all that golf and your garage sale! Your BBQ foods sound amazing too. Hope the rest of your week is fantastic.


puddles on 06/27/2013:
Nice to be playing so much golf. I am jealous. lol Have a great evening.


hollybelle on 06/27/2013:
Packed schedule! Thanks for catching us up! RE: Planning meals. It's key for me. Sometimes I am in such a flow on it and other times, just not even inspired....what do you think makes the difference?

I don't recall having gotten any sleep last night aside from an hour or so this morning where I turned off the alarm and then fell asleep.

All good, at work I am. My hair isn't even all messed up considering what it normally looks like in the morning.  I guess I didn't have to do any pretzel-ish movements that would mess it up, since I didn't fall asleep until morning. But i'm not bitter. And the coffee ain't bitter. But it will be. When I toss it. No more coffee past 12pm.

I would like to scream.

I feel (and let's face it, I probably look) a little like a walker from The Walking Dead, only difference being i'm not fixin' for any raw flesh. Yet. Someone slap me if I start gnawing on my left hand.

So. What were we talking about?

Had another meeting after work yesterday, got home afterwards and cleaned the house in anticipation of a garage sale happening in my garage today and tomorrow. Yep. That's where the party will be. BYOB.

hollybelle on 06/21/2013:
I hate not to get more sleep than that. I don't sleep really well most night - but lately it seems better. I take Alteril (OTC med) when it's really bad - hope you get some rest, it doesn't rain on your whole weekend and your garage sale reaps some $$.


Mskitty on 06/21/2013:
No sleep sucks- try to get some extra in on your weekend.


biscottibody59 on 06/21/2013:
Are you getting any of the flooding? I think I've given up on Mother Nature to save us from ourselves here--we got several days of rain last week, but it amounted to maybe a half-inch overall! The rest of the summer is predicted to be dry as usual!

Hope you get some sleep!


Umpqua on 06/21/2013:
Love that picture, I have felt like that many a night. I hope you get caught up on zzzzzS this weekend!


V on 06/24/2013:

I hear it's supposed to start raining again today and not stop until Monday :( that is a very depressing thought.

So I managed to get the afternoon off yesterday, and around 1pm I headed out to the golf course for 9 holes. We got stuck behind a group of six seniors, man that was annoying. They wouldn't let us pass them, little buggers. It was a beautiful day, got lots of sun in and had the best game of my life so far :) I took three strokes off my prior best game!

After golfing, I had a few bites of potato since I missed lunch, then got ready to head back to work. After the meeting was over, I rushed to the grocery store to pick up some crackers and cheese for a BBQ birthday party at a friend's place. I was hungry again by this point and we all know it's never good to go grocery shopping when you're hungry... I managed to restrain myself and only purchased what was needed. When I got to the BBQ, we gave out the birthday gift and had some food (more potatoes, must be a theme for this week! broccoli salad that was delicious, a spinach salad with egg whites, a few pieces of sausage, small slice of ham) and a cupcake. And then, because I can't resist cheesecake, I had a slice of that, too. So it wasn't the best day eating-wise, but i'm not about to beat myself up over it...

In fact, I also had a glass of whiskey that very nearly plunged me into the world of zzz's. For some reason I thought it might wake me up... it did not, and so by 10pm I was begging off for the night and curling up on the couch at home.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Tangalyn~ on 06/20/2013:
whiskey always perks me up... unless that is why im drinking it, then it knocks me out lol... have a great day!


Umpqua on 06/20/2013:
Sounds like a fun day yesterday, even if the whiskey did make you sleepy. Congrats on having your best golf game yet, that's awesome!


OhioRaven on 06/20/2013:
Funny post today. Glad to hear about your game.


V on 06/20/2013:

I am happily exhausted today ;)

After work yesterday, I ran around for a friend's birthday gift, got changed into my golf wear and headed out to the course for 9 holes of wonderful LOL. Then I got sad because I thought ahead and realized I wouldn't be able to golf again until Saturday at the soonest :(

So my friend and I figure we could both take some flex time from work this afternoon and get another 9 holes in before the weekend ;) um, obsessed? YES. We'll see if that actually happens though!

After golfing and having some dinner (the standard meat and potatoes G'Ma used to make and not something I eat on a regular basis), I mowed the lawn! I was out there until sometime after 9pm, but I got it DONE!

And in the process of mowing the lawn, I scared a baby bird out of its' nest :( I can only find two babies left in the nest now, and that damn cat was hanging around licking its' paws last night grrrrrr.

Lunch today will be a sandwich from the cafeteria because I still haven't managed to cook enough for leftovers.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

V on 06/19/2013:
I am sure the other babies were ready to spread their wings! That cat better behave or ELSE!! Have a good evening friend <3

I was tempted to cancel my golfing outing yesterday because I was still so very tired after work. Plus, G'Ma was in the hospital overnight so I spent a few minutes gabbing with her. I really just wanted to go home and take a nap, but once I got changed into my golfing attire that kind of changed ;)

And then, once we were done 9 holes I wanted to do another 9! Of course I didn't because no one else wanted to...

Isn't it interesting how easy it is to forget what you have in the freezer until you have nothing left in the fridge? I found a heat-and-eat lasagna in the freezer and 20 minutes later I was gobbling that down - it was actually pretty good for a frozen meal. Or maybe I was just THAT hungry.

I slept soundly last night; closed my eyes on the couch and they didn't open again until morning. My muscles hurt from the wierd position I had to sleep in on the couch, but i'll take a deep sleep over a little muscle pain any day. I'd been needing a sleep like that for a few days now.

I didn't accomplish much else yesterday, but like I said to myself right before my eyes closed, I said "some weeks it's hard to find the motivation for things you think of as chores, and some weeks you can just do it without a problem". This just isn't my week ;)

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/18/2013:
Great work getting golf in yesterday, I'm sure you felt great afterwards. And yay for a good night's sleep, I'm really due for one.


V on 06/18/2013:
Chores can def WAIT!! LOL Hope your Nana is doing well <3 P.S. snooze button is my bff ;) have a good one girl!


OhioRaven on 06/18/2013:
Yes, LC, I hope G-ma is good. No about the bags. I've climbed out of the basement after it got warm outside but I'm sure I'll be back down there when it gets cold again. Get some sleep !
