legcramps - Thursday Dec 31, 2009

Well, I for one am glad that today is New Year's Eve.  For me, it means throwing the old year out the door and slamming the door in its face.  I'm a little angry today.

My friend came to visit last night and she said some things that I think were very childish and immature.  Of course, SHE doesn't think so!  She was talking about my X and I simply asked her not to, that I didn't want to hear about him anymore.  She got huffy with me and from there it was like talking to a 13 year old girl.  Gawd.  If having friends means dealing with crap like this all the time, I don't know that I want it.  Her and her hubby are still friends with my X, so I understand how difficult it is for her to be 'stuck in the middle', but she needs to understand that i'm trying to move on and she's not helping any by constantly bringing him up - it hurts me!  Don't you think I deserve at least that much respect?  He's the one that made the mistakes, and yet he is allowed to continue a friendship with my BEST FRIEND's husband.  Can't you at least do me one favor and leave him out of our conversations?!

Anyways, vent over.

I drank lots of water yesterday and I think i'm close to where I was at weight-wise just before Christmas.  It may take another week or so, but i'll get there.  I shovelled last night for about 20 minutes, too.  Exercise!! Finally!  I also cooked dinner, washed the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, cut up some food for tonight's party, and did a load of laundry.  Superwoman!  Well, that's a super feat for me, anyways :) LOL.

Calories:

Sunday - 2,000; Monday - 2,400; Tuesday - 2,400; Wednesday - 1,800.  Working it's way down!  If I could stay under 1,800 each day, i'd be a happy camper.

Getting a gym key Jan 2nd!  Watch out gym, here we go again!

I think it's to your credit and possibly mental health that you can move forward. I hope the next time you encounter her she shows you that she finally has gotten the message.

Have a safe and Happy New Year--good riddance to 2009!

Yesterday wasn't the best day.  When I got home from work, all I wanted to do was sleep.  I even left work early because I was accomplishing nothing and feeling miserable.  I'm not sure why I felt so horrible.  I had no energy, no drive, nothing.  I just wanted to sleep.  So, I took a nap and it ended up being a four hour long nap.  When I woke up, I was super grouchy - thank goodness I live alone since I would have reamed someone out for sure, for absolutely no reason other than I was in one of my moods.  I received numerous phone calls during my sleep, answering none of them.  I ate chips and drank water all evening.  I think i'm going through a phase again.  I hate them.

So, 2,400 calories yesterday.  And no one phoned for wallyball so no exercise besides chipping away the ice at my back door so that I don't have to try to squeeze my body through the thin opening.  Am I complaining?  AGAIN?!

Even with all that sleep, i'm still tired today.  And I will have to triple-book myself for New Year's Eve.  I have to attend a dinner at my grandma's, then go to a friend's place to celebrate her 40th birthday, then i'm having people over to my place to bring in the new year.  I dread waking up Jan 1st, really I do.

Sugerandspiceandeverythingnice.  Sugarandspiceandeverythingnice.  Just get through it.

I have been sleeping a lot lately too. My naps have been way too long and I don't wake up any happier.

I didn't add up calories yet since the weekend, but I think yesterday was around 1,800.  I didn't have anything to eat at home for lunch, so resorted to picking up fast food.  Actually, what really did me in was the second mocha I bought in the afternoon.  Those things are at least 400 calories, so the two I had yesterday put me up over 800 calories.  It isn't hard to go over your calorie limit when you're already at 800 without any food!

I had a glass of red wine with dinner, which was a pork chop and a cup of rice.  I have snap peas sitting in the fridge if I need to snack on something, but last night I wasn't hungry for anything else.  Probably due to the mochas, ha-ha.  Anyways, the wine was good - L'Ambience if any of you are interested in trying it.  Medium-Dry, but really smooth.  I think it's from the USA, but don't quote me.

Tonight would be Wallyball, but i'm not holding my breath.  I really need to wax my legs and put a few more Christmas gifts together.

nita51 on 12/29/2009:
You sound like me,,,I still have gifts to rap. everybody couldn't make it by, for Christmas. Thanks for the kind words. Have a wonderful day!

I ate more than I wanted to over the Christmas holidays.  Today i'm hoping to get back on track with my water intake, and see how things go from there.  I was feeling good before the holidays hit, and I want to feel that way again!  Right now I just feel full, and I haven't eaten anything since yesterday!

Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!

I made ten resolutions for the next year.  I won't share all ten with you, but i'd like to tell you what my Top 3 are:

1) Health - Lose 20 pounds.

2) Finance - Pay down personal loan.

3) Travel - Once a month.

I want to write them down so that next year I can look back and summarize what I managed to accomplish and what I did not manage to accomplish.

I'm such an anal planner that i've written down all my resolutions on a week-by-week rundown for the next calendar year.  I think it's going to be another busy year... hopefully a lot happier than this one has been though!

What are your resolutions?

panda22 on 12/28/2009:
Hey there! Your resolutions sound great! Especially the travel one =) I wish I could do that! We travel a few times a month, but it's usually only a 3 hour drive to home lol. I would love to travel to other places though! Maybe when my son gets older! My resolutions are :: 1) Lose about 35 pounds at a rate of 1 pound per week by next year. 2) Stop and look at the big picture instead of stressing out over small things. 3) Keep my house more organized!

That's about it =) Have a great day! Sounds like you are getting right back on track!!

It started to snow yesterday morning, and seems to have continued on through the night and into this morning.  There are a few inches of snow on the ground already and it doesn't seem to be letting up much.  I do hope it won't be storming like this when I drive up north tomorrow.  I'd rather not have to use 4x4.  I AM a city girl.

1,200 calories yesterday.  Much better!  I'm hoping to have the same type of day today so that it will make it easier for me during Christmas by giving me a tad bit of leeway, maybe a pound or two grace period, you know?  I feel pretty good today, always happy to see the lower caloric intakes and the lower weights on the scale!  Lots of water is in the cards for today.

I still have many things to do in order to prepare for Christmas.  I have some last minute shopping to do, some laundry, some packing, get gas, get water, drop my dog off at the sitter's, have lunch with a friend, send out some Christmas wishes on facebook before I leave... i'm sure the list goes on, but i've gotten sudden brain-freeze and have stopped thinking.  It must be a sub-conscious coping strategy!

No one called again for Wallyball yesterday.  I feel a little left out!  You'd think I was a spoiled popular kid.

loveray on 12/23/2009:
you too? happy holidays!! xo


panda22 on 12/23/2009:
Great job keeping your calories in range! Sounds like you are doing well =). Hope you have a nice Christmas and get all that you need to get done finished!

Monday - 2,300 calories.  Doing good, aren't I?!  Not.

Went to see some Christmas lights last night with a few friends.  It was nice, though hardly any of the pictures taken with my camera worked out very well.  Or maybe it's just that I saw myself bloated and fat in the pictures.  Blah.  I just look terrible, plain and simple.

In two more days i'm heading to my aunt and uncle's to spend Christmas with them this year.  It will mean good, healthy food since all the women are on Weight Watchers.  Yay!  Until then though, I need to work on my eating.

Today's plan:

Large mocha, pork chop and rice for lunch, banana, pork chop and rice for supper.  Lots of water.

Run up and down stairs; do laundry; finish up homemade gifts.  Run up and down stairs.  Run up and down stairs.  Repeat.

I managed to make it to badminton last night.  I'm glad, as otherwise I would have done absolutely nothing.  Sad, huh?!

It was fun, and i'm quite sore today.  I have the day off work today, so that's good - won't have to sit at my desk stretching my muscles all day because they hurt.

Calories yesterday were 1,100.  Not the best, but it sort of makes up for Wednesday's calories which were around 2,600!

Have to get ready for Christmas today... so much to do.

Playing wallyball is like playing volleyball, except off the walls of a squash or racketball court.  Much more fast-paced.

I became sick last night with my period; SO exciting.  Not.  Struggled through the early morning once I had taken some advil and had the heating pad going.  I found it incredibly difficult to fall back to sleep for the hour and a half I had left until the alarm went off, and then even more incredibly difficult to get out of bed once I did fall asleep.

Was sick this morning before getting dressed for work, but came anyways.  I had meetings almost all day today, that's sort of my excuse.  Anyways, I just got back into the office and am leaving for home in about ten minutes.  I missed my lunch break totally because one meeting ran into the next, so i'm starving.

Oh yeah, and I ate some snacks at work yesterday afternoon, then a nice heavy meal for dinner.  I haven't added up the calories yet.  I don't know that I want to.

Badminton tonight at 7:30pm, but not so sure I wouldn't rather pass out on the couch instead.

Yesterday ended up around 1,700 calories.  I had sushi for dinner, so that added a few more calories than I would have liked, but I very much enjoyed myself so doesn't that make up for it?!!

I ended up not going to Wallyball last night, as no one phoned to say they needed an extra player.  I was a bit disappointed, but eventually they will ask, and then they won't be able to get rid of me!  So, no exercise yesterday due to the cold weather.  It is supposed to warm up a bit today - wouldn't it be nice to be able to go for a walk longer than 5 minutes and not get frost-bite?  My dog would enjoy that immensely.

I will be watching a movie with friends tonight.

I know it's unusual for me, so keep it on the DL, but i'm feeling sort of... happy... today.  Don't jinx it!

What is Wallyball? Got me curious!!

Have fun tonight with your friends!
