Weight: 319.4

DH put a pork roast in the crockpot...that is it! No potatoes or carrots.

D: pork roast, 1/2 avocado

Just a reminder that my kitchen is soon to be under construction. Construction was supposed to start tomorrow, however, DH received a text that he must push it back yet again and will be at my house first thing Monday. It's funny how he has all this trouble getting my project started but didn't have a problem cashing my check. We will see. I told my DH I'm really not in the mood to deal with this.

I had not one but two of the individual servings of cheese cake!! I knew this would happen as I have no kind of self-control whatsoever! and then that wasn't enough so I had peanut butter and crackers. Had my calories way over - about 2200.

I left my phone at the office last night.

B: just crack an egg, iced tea

L: fage yogurt, pork roast, avocado

S: balanced breaks

D: DH put in some penne pasta with meatballs - will se ehow this turns out after I get the girl.

Water intake still very good. I feel better and also feel like my skin may be doing better as well. Could be my imagination and/or wishful thinking.

Any hoo! I will continue to march.

Have a great day! IP

Progress as of today: 2.2 lbs lost so far, only 109.4 lbs to go!

BearCountryGG on 11/08/2018:
Hope your kitchen gets done soon...did they at least order your materials?


horn_of_plenty on 11/08/2018:
Lol why no potatoes and carrots!? haha

Work is stressing me out.

Monday I get home and baked some chicken. I had baked chicken tenders and avocado and tomato for dinner.

Doing well on my drinking water.

Tuesday - stressed out at work. So irriatated I wanted to pull everyone else's hair out. Just stay away from me!! DH bought me more sugar free koolade - chrystal light packets - the pineapple is delicious.

B: last of the maple cheerios, milk, vanilla iced latte

L: chicken tenders, avocado

S: balanced breaks

D: Chicken apple sausage, green beans

Got the girl and brought her over, she did her homework and talked about her upcoming birthday. In years past, I did not decorate the hough for Christmas until after her birthday. This year, she isn't over on her birthday and it will be two weeks before Christmas before we see her, so we have decided to have her birthday the first weekend of December, this will be about a week early, but with DH working 2nd shift, he doesn't even get to see her during the week. She just rattled on and on. She left at 8:00.

I cooked the rest of the sausage for lunch today.

B: last of the peanut butter cheerios (yes this is a thing)  - last of the vanilla iced latte (have no plans to replenish stock, as we have to drive out of town)

L: chicken apple sausage, fage yogurt

S: balanced breaks

D: pork roast

November has been a success with water and sweets! Will continue to drive on.

Have a great night! IP

Had a great weekend. I just can't bring myself to sit down at the computer at home on the weekend.

Saturday - we were running around. I ordered my new eyeglasses finally. The girl got her eyebrows threaded and then DH got some new jeans. I also found the Maple Cheerios, which are delicious.While shopping DH asked if I wanted a candy while waiting in line at Target...uh...NO!

Saturday:

B: waffle, egg, bacon sandwich, iced vanilla latte

L: maple cheerios, milk,

D: 1/2 French dip sandwich and bowl of tomato basil soup - restaurant

We went to a TGIF/Applebee's kind of restaurant before the play. I had a macaroni and cheese bite and a mozzerella stick off the appetizer tray DH ordered. Then I had a bowl of soup and 1/2 sandwich. I was very happy with what I ate. We then went to 5 and below - just wasting time before the play and again with the candy. NO I DON'T WANT ANY!! The play was cute and I did have 1 sugar cookie we bought at the play for a fund raiser for the kids.

Sunday - DH went shopping and I did laundry. Suprisingly the girl's mouth wasn't Sore at all, so she was pretty happy about that. I just say...YET. I'm sure it will get sore once they tighting the wires a little more. She has a great attitude about it though. I walked the dog and we found a little yorkie running around alone. He followed us. I knocked on one door and asked if the puppy belonged to them,, they said no. The puppy followed me home so I took him in the house. I didn't want him lost or snatched up or attacked by other dogs. The girl and I entertained Her for a few minutes and sure enough the owner came out and was walking up and down the street. I asked if she was looking for her puppy and we gave her back. Steve wasn't asking very friendly toward her and he was happy to see her leave. He is such a brat!

B: maple cheerios

L: beef jerky, white cheddar popcorn

D: spinach, artichoke ravioli with grilled chicken

S: cheese cake dessert - indiivudal pack - this is how I have to eat dessert in individual/pre-portioned sizes.

Very happy with my water drinking this weekend. And I stayed below my calores and was able to deal with it, so will start off this week good.

Have a great day! IP

Sounds like it was a great weekend!


BearCountryGG on 11/05/2018:
GOOD EATING...and good saying NO to candy!!! And Steve was feeling a little jealous....how cute......you might have saved the puppy from getting hit by a car.......happy she is back home safe...and I'm sure Steve is happy too...LOL


horn_of_plenty on 11/05/2018:
SAME HERE, it's sometimes hard to come on here on the weekend and comment / post as i do during the week!!! :)

isn't it great getting new eyeglass frames!!!! so fun to get a new look...in my opinion!


Donkey on 11/06/2018:
Nothing wrong with having to have pre-proportioned serving sizes for dessert. Extremely helpful, I find...

Today was crazy. I was only to stay at work for half the day and it seems like everyone at the headquarter's office had some kind of request. I wondered if they even worked Monday-Thursday.

Drank more water, swelling in feet has subsided a bit, will continue to drink more.

B: frittata

L; 1/2 roast beef and cheese sandwich

S: balanced breaks

D: 2nd have of roast beef and cheese sandwich

Met DH and the girl at the orthodontist's office. DH went to work and I got the girl and went home. She ate soup. I'm thinking her mouth will be sore tomorrow.

Have a great night.

Sounds like the girl is taking the discomfort very well....I know my son was in a lot of pain...but I think that they are so happy to get their teeth straightened...they willingly put up with it......it is a long hard haul though...it does get easier.


Horn_of_plenty on 11/05/2018:
why did you have so much swelling? a lot of salt?

like bcgg says, it's worth the pain for the beautiful smile! i thank my parents so much for giving me the "gift of braces"

glad you are feeling better after drinking some water.

from my experiences with braces, the soreness is mostly at the beginning, and then you just get used to the tightening whenever you go...and it never hurts as bad as it used to. soup is healthy... :) she's looking so pretty in your photos. very pretty girl.

Happy November!

Very busy week. Someone's big idea to have a chili cookoff grew into a huge event that somehow landed on my desk. It turned out to be a building wide function (there are three different agencies in my bulding) and again, somehow it became my project to organize and schedule and plan. I guess that's a perk of my position, same someone forgot to mention. But despite the stress, I believe everyone had a great time and it turned out fantastic of course, just took much more of my time than I anticipated. And I didn't win...I think I came in 6th. Oh well.

Girl was over and passed out candy to the trick or reaters. It was cold and rainy and I'm surprised we had any at all, but she did manage to give away the entire 5 pound bag of candy. I told her if she didn't give it away, she would take it home with her. I had 4 fun-size twix - probably the size of one regular pack.

B. maple, brown sugar oatmeal; iced vanilla latte - 400

L: home made pizza (2 squares) - 534 (I used the recipe maker on the Lose it app and added all my ingredients - I thought it looked like just a few calories, I went back and review the recipe and i forgot the cheese)

S: yogurt

D: I don't know yet

Friday I am leaving work early to take the girl to get her top braces finished. Then I am going to vote.

Saturday we have errands and I really need to get my new eye glasses ordered. We have tickets to go see ELF a play put on by a local theater. It is a few towns over. We are supposed to go to dinner before the show.

And then Tuesday - they are finally supposed to start the cabinet installation. I can only hope they are finished before Thanksgiving.

Have a great evening. IP

My schedule is all out of whack, my kitchen is in disarray. These are my excuses today. My dog has a routine and he doesn't like change...neither do I, except I don't poop on the floor when I get mad.

The granite slab is in for the countertops, still waiting on the cabinets, funny I thought this would be the other way around.

DH working 2nd shift - is the worst thing EVER! The only good thing about this, is I have been eating less. I will cook but I pack that up for lunch the next day and I have just been having small meals...by myself.

B: blueberry muffin. I took a brownie but one bite, I had to spit it out and I tossed the rest in the trash. This girl...does not do dark chocolate of any kind. I find it bitter and really unpalatable.

L: cream cheese and crackers, Subway cookie

S: balanced breaks

D: I think calzone. The girl can put what she wants in hers and I will put what I want in mind. DH just takes everything, he don't care, but again this will be for lunch tomorrow.

DH gets home about 12:30, I tried staying up when he went in at 2:00 pm, but he is going in at 3:00 pm and the one extra hour I just can't stay up. He putts around the house doing I don't know what and takes a shower about 2:00 in the morning, I think he finally made it to bed at 3:30 am. Seriously...this isn't working for me. My sleep is getting disrupted when I do finally go to bed. Not my idea situation, but I will figure somthing out.

Putting off going to the VA, do NOT want to hear that PCP **** about my weight again. I will do the mammogram though!

AND then I was sad all morning because of those stupid memories on FACEBOOK. One of my soldiers from Fort Bragg died unexpectedly a few years ago and the book of face feels I need to be reminded about it.  I''m still really saddened, disbelief all over again.  he was so young and died of a brain aneursym, he had three boys all young (18, 13, 5).

 

Have a great night! IP

I didn't like it when D worked nights either....but airport construction has to be done then...……….for me the worst pat was keeping everyone quiet all day so he could sleep..


Donkey on 10/28/2018:
^I agree with Bear, the worst part was keeping everyone quiet during the day while the husband slept.


happy-1 on 10/31/2018:
LOL... What if you DID poop on the floor when you got mad? Oh the things we will be able to get away with in our 90s


horn_of_plenty on 11/01/2018:
wow a dark chocolate brownie....yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dang those subway cookies are madddd goooood!

welcome back!

i hope DH starts out on a diff shift soon if there's a chance of it?

The girl had her teeth pulled and did fantastic. She came back to our house and ate mashed potatoes, took a shower and talked my ear off. She took one Aleve and went to bed. Friday morning, she said she felt 'perfectly fine' and went to school. I picked her up and she did well all weekend. I made her soft food. She had a great attitude about it all, I just know as an adult, if I had four teeth pulled I'd probably be down at least one day per tooth. Oh to be young again.

It was a good weekend, not too much over indulgence.

DH and I moved everything out of the kitchen for the new cabinets, but they haven't shown up yet to install them. Hopefully before the week is up. Here is the before pictures. We are just adding cabinets onto the existing cabines and cabinets where the rail is with a wider countertop to make a bar into the family room. They are also moving that outlet up to where the others are. Looking forwrad to this being started and finished.

 

We have a chili cook off at work next Wednesday/Halloween. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.

ILots of stuff going on, sometimes, it just moves so fast. I will catch up, though.

Have a great evening. IP

BearCountryGG on 10/23/2018:
Looks like you have plenty of room for new cabinets...looking forward to after photos!


Horn_of_plenty on 10/24/2018:
Do you mean pulled out or pulled with the braces? Nothing hurts like the first week of having braces on...she's probably so glad not to experience that first week again :) I'm glad it's going well...one more tip from me....do not rush to get them off...teeth move very easily afterwards...make sure she wears the retainer they'll give...or teeth will DEF move. I have some bottom teeth that moved a little bit and my sister has top teeth that moved bc we stopped wearing the retainers too early.

So, on the open wall you're going to have full counters / cabinets?

Chilli is such a tasty meal!

Everything sounds great on your end <3

innerpeace on 10/24/2018:
She had four teeth pulled/extracted to make room to straighten up her teeth. She had the brackets put on and will have the wire put on next week, after she heals after getting the teeth pulled. We will see how she feels when they start tightening that wire.

Just bottom cabinets on the open wall - it will be an island/bar or pennisula. If they ever get started.

Went to the eye doctor, I hate having my eyes dilated. I didn't get back to normal until well after 9:00 pm. I am alone in the house until 4:30 until about 10:30 - six hours!! I should be able to get lots done, I just can't get motivated.

Last night i baked pork chops and ate one of them. The other three sat on the stove until DH came home, well after 11:00. I haven't been going to bed until I know he is safely home.

Tonight was the girl, but DH changed it to tomorrow.

The girl told me she wanted to come back to our house after the surgery.

When DH talked to the exwife (POS) she told him the girl wanted to go back to her house. So I'm wondering if that girl just tells us what we both want to hear, frankly, I'll take her @ss home because I don't want to see her mope around in pain and whine and cry. This is the crap that pisses me off about the entire step-parenting situation. Freakin' just tell me what you want to do, go home, fine I'll take you home. If not then she'll just go upstairs and do what she always does.

I told her she could come back to our house and if she didn't feel like going to school on  Friday than she could just stay there - because she will be over this weekend.

She said she wanted to go to school (we'll see how long that lasts after the surgery) I told her I would take her home after. Anyway...whatever, if DH did't have to work, I wouldn't be involved in this whole process.

D: pork chop - ice cream (there is no more ice cream)

I think I got to sleep a little after midnight.

B: blueberry pancakes, iced coffee

L: left over pork chop, peanut butter breakfast bar

S: banana, balanced breaks

D: DH said he made salisbury steak, will find out when I get home.

Work is crap this week!

Have a great night! IP

Don't be so hard on yourself. Getting your eyes messed with is stressful. It is ok to rest. (I say as I cough like the zombie apocalypse and vacuum).

Um, I'm quite sure girlie would MUCH rather be at your place.

lol, work is crap makes sense!


horn_of_plenty on 10/17/2018:
i agree with Happy...it's sometimes difficult after dentist / dr / eye appt to come home and work more.


Donkey on 10/18/2018:
Having a spouse who works 2nd shift can be lonely, especially if you are on a first shift schedule with sleeping, meals, working. Been there, done that - although I did have 2 little ones to keep me busy. I did a lot of "married single-mother" parenting. It's really rough.
