Weight: 311.9

DH and I ran the errands and got back home. We ate the veal parmasean leftovers. I had oreos - remember I said I didn't go shopping? 

We did have a heart to heart about the little girl and her weight. DH agreed he would quit buying crap at the store, we will see. I never did hear anything back from the mother, I knew I wouldn't but I was hoping, you know?

Since the right side car mirror was torn off by the crazy bird I think I twisted my back craning to see traffic, I will try to do my c25k after work. About 9 o'clack last night I said I was going to bed I was so tired, but the stupid dog had me up at 11:00. He was not ready to go to bed. I think he gets lonely or misses me, he stayed up until 1:00 am, and then I went back to bed. When the alarm went off at 5:00 to get up, that didn't happen. Still a little tired today.

B: blueberry bagel, cream cheese, iced vanilla latte

S: yogurt protein bar

L: turkey patrami sandwich, swiss cheese, greek yogurt, tangerine

S: balanced breaks

I do not know what is for dinner.

work is a stupid idiot today!

Have a great evening!

Oreos are a weakness of mine. Can't have them in the house.

hollybelle on 04/12/2016:
I feel ya on the Oreos. My husband who NEVER brings home sweets brought home about 6 4 packs of Reese's cups about 3 weeks ago - I have had more than I needed to! But not as much as I could have! I will be SO glad when they are all GONE!

thinnside40 on 04/12/2016:
Hoping you have a good start and day on Wednesday!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/13/2016:
If you do quit buying junk food, try to replace it with something instead. So, for instance, if you were going to have oreos, now replace that with grapes....don't "not eat" just replace what you would have eaten with something else so that you don't feel starved...! and good for you on having the talk over you little lovie girl!

Wow I love how Monday can kick you in the teeth for one reason or another.

Everything was good this morning. I left at 10:00 to get the little girl to her doctor's appointment. I ask myself why, when her mother doesn't work - Hello? What is wrong with this picture? I have to fill out camp paperwork and for the last two years I haven't put a name on the form because she has always been right down the street from me if something happened. However, since I changed jobs, she will be going to a new place so I wanted to have the forms completely filled out.

I told the little girl what the doctor would do, check you over. He will touch your face and press on your stomach. She wasn't very happy with me. My main reason was the allergy consult, which I got. But he was really concerned with her tonsils and recommended removal if she started getting sore throats, which she hasn't been.

And then he was concerned with her weight. I was a little shocked as I didn't think she weighed as much as she does. She measured in at 5'1" and weighs 184 pounds. Shocking. I can only control what goes on at my house. He wants her to be more active...oh about that we have tried but again, one household does it, the other doesn't. It is hard. We are signed up for the hiking stick program again this summer and I will try to get her doing other stuff whenever she is over.

I sent an email to her mom but do not expect any kind of response:


B: blueberry bagle, iced vanilla latte

L: roast beef, swiss sandwhich (on 45 calorie pepperidge farms light wheat bread), tangerine

S: balanced breaks

D: left over veal parmasean

DH and I have errands this evening - he ordered something and we have to pick it up at Home Depot. I have a book on hold that I need to pick up at the library and the I wanted some ear candles at Target which is right next door to Home Depot, we should be able to get that done....maybe.

Thankful she has you to help guide her at least. May you have good rest tonight and feel refreshed in the morning.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/12/2016:
I am surprised by her weight too as I think you posted a photo a long time ago and I don't think she weighed that much yet? unless i'm thinking of someone else's photo on here.

keep showing your little girl love. & keep giving her the world. I feel terrible for her. but everything you give helps her so much.

Oh Saturday! Woke up with a bad migraine, slept most of the day. I haven't had a nausea driven, upset stomach migraine in a long time. I could hardly keep my eyes open, the light would drill into my brain. I finally got up and around about 3:30, cleaned a little house and waited on DH to get home. He said he was hungry and if I wanted we could just eat and forget about the play. Well after dinner I felt ok and we went to the play. We ate at  a place called Rockne's I think was in an old Bennigan's restaurant. I had a terminator sandwich, it was just beef, cheese with a few french fries on it. DH had a fajita platter. We took half of the food with us, we couldn't eat it all.

The play, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown was about a man wooing three different women and all the drama involved. It was cute!

We slept on Sunday till about 8:30 and I was up and started laundry. I contemplated doing my c25K, but kept putting it off. DH went shopping without me and I stayed home and did some more around the house. He gets home and we unload groceries. He cooks us veal parmasean and I look up and it is already 5:30....procrastination is a ****.

I did do day 1 of the c25k, I felt ok, my back got a little tight and the last of the six one minute runs, was a little hard, but I finished it. I was proud of myself.

Now I am home and resting until sleep time. I just don't want to go to work, as the new show  promo says...work is a stupid idiot! I will go in but will leave to take the little girl to the doctor and then back again. I hope the doctor orders the skin test to see what all she is allergic to.

Have a good Sunday evening. IP

I get enough drama from one woman. Three would be intolerable. Good going with eating 1/2 your meal and keeping up on the exercise.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/11/2016:
Cheers and I am so happy for you doing the couch to 5k. Amazing....

I think I shall follow one of these for my own training in cardio! Thank you for getting me interested in it! I will actually do it slower than the recommended process so I ensure I don't injure myself! thank you!

Slow day at work and laying around and relaxing this Friday night. Tonight and tomorrow we have more snow coming, they say about 6 inches. WOW! Hello Spring.

I read with the little girl last night, she is ready to take the AR test, but she had excuses as to why she didn't take it. Maybe she did today. I won't see here again until Monday morning, when I am taking her to the doctor appointment. I want to ask for a skin test because she is always hacking and coughing and I think she is allergic to everything. I had DH text and remind the exwife to get her out of school Monday morning and still she is with this attitude, that the little girl will miss dress down day because her attendance record will be messed up. Really? Do you not care that your daughter hacks and coughs all night long? Last fall she was in the emergency room because her leg swelled up...from getting infected from all the bug bites. Stupid lady! I told her I will take her back after the appointment, she won't miss the entire day. This is the same lady that said she can't have braces because someone will make fun of her...and the same woman married to the man who said libraries are stupid! Go figure!

B: multi grain cheerios, iced vanilla latte

L: chicken sandwich, fiber one bar

S: tangerines

D: left over chicken sandwiches

Ending the day with 2,016 calories, I had hostess cupcakes, why? because I'm a food addict! Sweet tooth rules my mind.

Tomorrow is date night, we are supposed to go out to eat and have tickets to a play. Looking forward to a night out.

Tomorrow....the house cleaning beckons

Sunday C25K Day 1!

Enjoy the weekend. IP

Sugar was hard to give up for me also but now I do not even think about and it is a relief. Enjoy your date night.

hollybelle on 04/09/2016:
Have a great night out. Poor little girl. My granddaughter is allergic to a lot of things and keeps a cough, despite being taken to the doc all the time, they can't seem to clear it up. Hope you can help your little one.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/10/2016:
Sorry you got the snow! That's toooo much man! We just got rain this time around. So Spring is here for us but still chilly willy!

Enjoy your date night! I lived it up partying more than I ever did in my entire life on Friday night!

Yes! No fish last night, DH wanted to go to the blue sky. I had a chicken ranch wrap, DH ate my french fries, and I had a cup of chicken noodle soup. 1342 calories.

I plugged in my fitbit, but forgot it this morning.

This is a little girl night and will probably help her with some reading and homework.

DH took out chicken for dinner and he usually cooks that.

B: multi grain cheerios

L: peanut butter sandwich, tangerines, fiber one fart bar

S: trail mix

It is supposed to s know tonight again....this weather is getting me down. The lawn is getting long and will be super hard to mow if/when the grass ever dries out. That one weekend, when everyone was mowing....I now know why! I work at the weather service and do NOT even pay attention to it. I will change that one day.

No big plans, house cleaning.

Enjoy your evening.

Calories last night 1649.

A friend of mine talked me into registering for a virtual race. Not racing anyone but myself. I will charge my fitbit tonight and get registered. A trip through OZ.

I also decided to start the Couch to 5K program again (C25K) without DH. He is still not 100% after his knee surgery, so this is a lone venture. I will start on Sunday morning snow or NO snow, it's going to happen.

B: multi grain cheerios, iced vanilla latte

L: left over turkey burger, lemon fiber one bar

S: trail mix

D: TBD DH said something about fish, but this could change as he already texted me to tell me he still has $20 if I wanted to go to Blue Sky.

Raining and thudnerstorms going on here, quite the show at the weather service!

No real plans for this evening, may check out some yoga.

Have a good evening.

DH and I didn't have the left over pork chops. We go to IHOP instead. I wanted pancakes but opted for two eggs and bacon with brioche toast. It was pretty good. I suck though because when DH was picking up his medication he brought me a Hershey bar. We ate it. Way over on calories because of it . Finished with 2296.

Today was difficult at work. I have tons of stuff to do but feel overwhelmed at times, so I find myself just sitting. My boss was out today so that was easier for me to try and relax a little. I organized some stuff and I'm still tossing and shredding stuff that is 15-30 years old...no relevance whatsoever!

Over the weekend I helped the little girl read and study for her AR test for the Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. We read the book, talked about, went over every part of it. I found a book review quiz online and she took it. Only missing one of the 25 questions. I was hopeing she would take the actual test today at school.  When she gets in the car, I asked her if she took the AR test. She says, No I didn't have the book. OMG I had the book, it was due back to the library. I asked if she needed the book? She said not really...then why the hell did she say that? I told her if she needed the book, we can renew it and she can take it to take the test. Did she or did she not need the book. She said she didn't. Now I don't know. WHy is she like that? it stresses me out!  She tells DH that her mom's license is suspended....I was trying to find out why, but she said she didn't know. That her mom was pulled over. DH says he thinks its because she didn't have car insurance, but I don't know, someone came and picked her up, so I hope she gets home. I mean I know she is going home, I just don't know who is driving her...aunt, uncle, grandma...

B: toast; iced vanilla latte

S: yogurt protein bar

L: roastbeef sandwhich

S: tangerine

D: a recipe for party sandwiches DH found on the book of face. He used ground turkey instead of beef and they turned out pretty good.

The little girl and I were at the library getting another book. We will be reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Ramona and Beezus and a Star Darlings book. I read the Diary of the Wimpy kid book this eveing, they make me laugh, because I can see this happening in real famlies. I think it will be a good tool to help the little girl. She can read all she wants, but it doesn't help if she isn't paying attention to what she is reading. That is why I started to read it, to ask her questions....maybe this approach will work.

I  didn't add my calories up yet, I will do it first thing tomorrow.

DH and I decided to try to go to a Y closer to our work. We can go and stay about 45 minutes to an hour and let the traffic die down. We are checking this one out tomorrow. This is the one the little girl will be doing her summer camp at, so we will see.

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!

Somtimes there are just thoughts bouncing around in my head and today it is no different. So much so it is wearing me out and I know there is stuff I want to do when I get home. I know we need to go to the store, because DH and the little girl did not over the weekend, because DH did not want to run into the monthly shoppers who crowd the stores at the first of the month. But if we don't go, I doubt there will be any lunch stuff for this week.

It is cold out and is supposed to snow again later tonight. Not that I'm a baseball fan, but the season opener was postponed until tomorrow.

We have a lot of stuff in our house. I would like to get rid of some of it, but DH won't let go of it. There is lots of stuff in the garage and shed too, that he won't get rid of. There is a shelf in the shed that has nothing but medicine bottles on it. I can't say why? But why does he keep this crap? 

The fireplace is fileld with burnt ashes, I wanted to get that swept out and clean it up - we will probably not use it anymore until next winter and we are out of firewood.

The little girl has crap all over too. Piled on top of my buffet table. She has her own space, but must take up mine as well. This must change.

There are vegetables in the refrigerator that must be cooked before they go bad, will address this tonight.

B: toast, vanilla iced latte

S: protien yogurt bar

L: smoked salmon, crackers

S: tangerine

D: left over baked pork chops and vegetables (squash & zuccini)

Lol, since moving to my apt 3 years ago, I have thrown out tons of rotten, uncooked veggies lol....

I can relate to your swimming thoughts in your head of what you want to do. I do this too, all the time. Especially when I get too busy like now, but I know it'll end so i'm not getting as worked up about anything luckily...I want to read my book, and everyday I know I have to put it off bc I end up getting too tired at night, lol. looking to read it tonight! ;)

Just remember, you will eventually get to do everything you want to do. Sometimes patience is the real killer :)

Was i n bed and realized I did not post today. It was really a relaxing day, just got caught up in stuff.

Woke up to snow. About an inche was on the ground. Was up by 8:30 and showered. Came down and drank the iced vanilla latte and did the Sunday drossword puzzle, watched a few episodes of law and order.

Helped the litle girl with her book review, hopefully she can take her AR test on Tuesday and get 3 points. I think she need 12 or 15 before the end of 4th quarter.

Completed the laundry and picked up around the house.

DH and the little gril went to Toys R Us for a book that the little girl wanted. She used her own money. They brought Taco Bell back for lunch.

Dinner we had baked pork chops and brocolli. I finished the day at 1548 calories. Still would like to see lower than that.

Tomorrow I will be busy at work so I hope the day goes by super fast.

Watched a disapointing episode of the Walking Dead I waited all weekend for...and my SOONERS lost! On a good note though, I didn't expect them to win and have the two teams that actually made in the final game in my bracket. I completed a bracket through the county contest we have, so far I am tied for secondl. If NC wins tomorrow, I may be $40-60 dollars richer! And I paid nothing to enter! very excited about that.

I'm ready for Monday! Have a good night!
